Video Games of 2021

It is this time of year again! 2021 wasn’t quite the bright new dawn expected after 2020, with the persistent danger of Covid-19 variant “Omicron” this winter.

Review: Final Fantasy VII Remake

As someone who didn’t grow up with the 1997 original that is so beloved by a huge proportion of gamers (and I might say blindly) there’s something to talk about with the remake that released in 2020. So let it be said: the original Final Fantasy VII… is overrated. If you didn’t grow up with…

Review: Shangi-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings

Before we get into this review, I want to say something very quickly. It has been twenty months since I’ve been to the cinema; the last film I saw was Disney’s Onward, back in April 2020, just before the full lockdown was in place for the public sector. It has been tough, and I have…
