★★★★½ Developer/Publisher: Ska Studios Platform: PS4 (reviewed), PS Vita, PC (Windows)   This game is Dark Souls. It may be in the form of a two-dimensional platformer, but no matter how you look at it, this game is Dark Souls. And I love it.

★★ Director: Oliver Parker   Dad’s Army is a film adaptation of the popular 1970s BBC series of the same name, and a very limp one at that.

  Creeping slowly down The Parade during the construction of the Island Bay cycleway, we passed a group of road workers who were about to finish up for the day. It was hot and sunny, and the men were leaning against the sides of trucks, on brooms and spades, surveying the day’s work. The road beneath […]
