How I Met Your Mother Recap: S07E18: Karma

March 2, 2012

0 Comments

Never mind. One week after the best HIMYM episodes in years we’re back to one of the most hateful, lazy, inattentive half hours of television I’ve ever seen these guys have to perform. The disappointment with the material is almost palpable. The show kicks off with a quick recap of the last couple episodes, as if [...]

Prometheus: Stand Alone Film or Just an Alien Prequel?

February 29, 2012

1 Comment

The internets are abuzz about the upcoming release from Ridley Scott. Prometheus is to be released on the 8th of June 2012 and the promotion ship has well and truly taken off. The biggest debate is over whether the film is in fact a prequel to Ridley Scott’s genre-defining Alien. Even with the director apparently [...]

Games involving cars are a dime a dozen these days. My favourite racing franchises remain Burnout (underrated in my opinion) and the evergreen Gran Turismo. With so many similar games, it’s hard to stand out in a crowded market. Legendary games developer Namco have created some classic titles in their time such as Tekken and [...]

How I Met Your Mother Recap: S07E16: The Drunk Train

February 16, 2012

Any show that’s been around as long as How I Met Your Mother is bound to cover the same sort of ground a couple of times. Less excusable when you start using the same jokes again. Barney claims to have Enormous Penis Syndrome, which you’ll remember from the episode called The Playbook, where it appeared in [...]

How I Met Your Mother S07E15: The Burning Beekeeper

February 8, 2012

Teevee’s a funny place. The question of How I Met Your Mother is still famously unresolved and going nowhere fast. The quality of the episodes is consistently lower than ever and the guest actors more of an intrusive nuisance – remember when Bryan Cranston was involved on a regular basis? And yet HIMYM is drawing in better weekly [...]

Cece crashes

So what’s this week’s New Girl about? Mainly Cece, Jess’ best friend, who has been in a couple of episodes but haven’t had the chance of getting to know her really well. What we knew about Cece is that she was a model, she was Jess’ childhood friend and that Schmidt was already crazy about [...]

Ghost Recon Future Solider

There’s an old saying; two’s company, three’s a crowd. Call of Duty and Battlefield continue to slug it out to be crowned king of the military shooter. But is there room for one more contender? From the Ghost Recon: Future Soldier trailer, the answer could be yes. The latest title in the Ghost Recon series has been [...]

Book Review: The Hunger Games

My boyfriend recently got a kindle for his birthday and has found that he is reading twice as much as he did before he owned one. He gently and reluctantly passed his kindle over to me and told me to read a book called The Hunger Games.  The Hunger Games, written by American author Suzanne [...]
