Nick Parkes Considers the Intricacies of “Assassin’s Creed: Revelations”

January 24, 2012

(Ubisoft Montreal 2011) The abundance of free time for consumers and the money that gets chucked around leading up to New Year’s Eve is a very happy time for any market. Video games, as product of a fledgling industry, always cater to safe bets, which essentially saw the Christmas period of 2011 rain releases from […]

“Never Let Me Go” is a Poetic Film Full of Pathos by Joseph Misuraca

I’ll let you in on something. I watch Neighbours like it’s my day job. Every day, same hours, usually after I’ve finished 3 glasses of wine and can absorb the meaningful plotlines on a level that I can’t reach while sober. Isn’t that what day jobs entail? But I’ll admit something. I didn’t realise the […]
