IMG 8606

Seminal PC shooter Quake famously featured a soundtrack composed by rock band Nine Inch Nails, and the game was littered with nice little nods to the fact - who can forget the ammo crates emblazoned with the familiar NIN logo?

DBfQGs7XkAAzbrj.jpg-large

Titan A.E. is a movie I hold very dear to my heart, and not least because it and the subsequent collapse of Fox Animation Studios were the subject of my disseration at college.

Iron-Commando-on-IndieGoGo

Screen Shot 2017-04-21 at 07.57.26

You have to hand it to Sonic fans - they don't do anything by halves. Even less so when it comes to making their own games based on the Blue Blur's escapades fighting Dr Robotnik/Eggman or whatever his name is these days. Unlike Nintendo, which seems hell-bent on crushing anything that even remotley resembles an homage to any of its intellectual [ … ]

BennVenn-Game-Boy-Advance-TV-Out-Prototype

For those of us who strongly believe the Game Boy Advance is nothing more than a portable Super Nintendo, having the ability to play the handheld’s strong line-up on a TV is priceless.
