VR or not to VR, that is the question

After a very successful E3 conference, the VR market is finally beginning to expand from tech-demos to real-life examples of how this technology could be used to make existing games far better by adding a level of depth previously unreachable due to the detached nature of having a player sit, stand or lie with a control pad in their hands and have ambient noise from their surroundings interrupting their experience.

Look Away – My Thoughts on Lemony Snickets A Series Of Unfortunate Events (Netflix)

Look away, look away, this review teems with dreadful themes and overwhelming dismay.
Look away, look away for reading this will surely ruin your entire day.

By this point, I hope you realise that I am – of course – joking. Lemony Snickets books have never been filled with happiness, joy and glee, this was no different with 2004’s movie starring the enigmatic Jim Carrey as the dreadful ‘Count Olof’, this theme survived and is highlighted in the 2017 Netflix series which puts Neil Patrick Harris in the role as the count.

Demons Souls is From Softwares masterpiece

In the years that have passed since it made its triumphant and deadly debut back in 2009, Demon’s Souls continues to stand the test of time.

Since 2009 I have had a problem – I like being killed.

Okay, that isn’t strictly true.
