My Top 5 Games of 2013

      Let’s do this before we get too far into January!

      I was toying with doing a Top 10 but am kind of pressed for time so… here’s my Top 5 favourite games of the year!

      These aren’t necessarily games that were released in 2013 – just ones I played during that year and completed.

      Oh and before you ask “where’s (insert game here)…”, I didn’t get to play GTAV, The Last of Us, Assassin’s Creed IV or finish Telltale’s The Walking Dead… or anything else you think I may have missed, so that’s why they aren’t included. I’ll do some special mentions afterwards too to see what else could have been in if there was a Top 10.

      If you are interested in 2012 and 2011’s best games lists, just click HERE or HERE.

      Anyway, here are my Top 5 games that I played this year.

Films of the Year 2013 - The Alternative Awards!

      Following on from the previous article of My Top 10 Films of 2013, here are some alternative awards. Again these are just my opinions, based on this list of films I saw last year (this time they don't necessarily have to be 2013 releases). Clicking on each title will also link to a relevant clip so do so if you are interested.

      Feel free to discuss and comment or offer your own suggestions afterwards!

47 Ronin - English or Japanese?

       Note: this article was written on the 23rd of December, but I’ve only just out it up now as I was busy with other articles and was waiting for my main review of the film to be published first.

       The Keanu Reeves starring samurai epic 47 Ronin is in a strange position. Having seen it recently in Japan (it’s yet to be released in the US), I had an unusual gripe – namely to do with the language in it.

       No, I don't mean cuss words – I mean English.

       It’s ALL in English.

       So? You ask.

       Let me give you a few details first.
