Patience. You’re going to need a bit of it if you want to play this game. This JRPG was developed Idea Factory and Red Entertainment and published by Ghostlight Games in Europe and made exclusive for the PS3. I’m not really a huge JRPG fan, having only ever playing 1 or 2 in the past, [...]
Spec Ops: The Line is a third-person shooter developed by Yager Development and published by gaming heavyweights, 2K Games. Released back on July 26th/29th 2012, this game had not really been on my radar until I heard a recent episode of Interactive Distractions. So I decided to cancel my Assassin’s Creed III pre-order (because I [...]
Back to the old school thrash metal now, and we have the ‘third up’ on the Big 4; Megadeth. Formed by guitarist Dave Mustaine upon leaving Metallica, they have worked long and hard to attain their own unique distinctive sound.
We last saw Queen on this feature back in 1975 with their best album, Night At The Opera.

The Canadian singer/songwriter had already made quite a name for himself by 1988 with hits such as Hallelujah and Suzanne, but often underappreciated is the iconically ’80s ’I’m Your [...]
Half way through the 50 Years now, and we come to a genuine musical classic. An album which transcends the ages, and appeals to all. Guns N’ Roses’ debut ‘Appetite For Destruction’ contains songs which are universally recognised and adored by even those not from the rock world; SEVERAL songs – an achievement not replicated [...]
When The Darkness first hit the scene in the early part of the century, they rose astronomically through the charts to reach a level of success some would regard as unfair. This rise was on the back of I Believe In A Thing Called Love; the single which became a part of my generation’s fabric; [...]
Not many bands are remembered for one great album which descends time, and is still popular and relevant to this day. Metallica are one of the even fewer bands to have written TWO great albums; the first being the universally praised Master of Puppets.
