Shadow Warrior (PC DVD) by Mastertronic
Shadow Warrior (PC DVD) by Mastertronic
4.0 out of 5 stars 80's Ninja adventure, 18 Sep 2014
Shadow Warrior is an 80's comedy of sorts; sure, it's based around demons and eviscerating people with a katana but it's actually very funny at multiple points. You are Wang - the ninja lackey employed by Zilla to obtain a fabled sword. The deal quickly goes south as the seller is rudely dismembered by interdimensional demons also after the sword and Wang has to fight his way out with the help of his newly acquainted ghost friend.

The ghost friend cracks wise the entire time and even Wang has a fair few one liners to interject (after one especially heavy firefight Wang quips "I guess I was just too much Wang for them") and fortune cookies provide you with such wisdom as… Read more
Hard Reset: Extended Edition (PC DVD) by Kalypso Media
2.0 out of 5 stars Basic spray & pray FPS, 18 Sep 2014

The guns are awful, they all feel exactly the same, there is no reloading so you literally just hold the fire button down and… Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars Xkcd on paper, 17 Sep 2014
This book is a fantastic collection of the 'What If' section of the xkcd website - in it, Randall Munroe (previously employed by NASA) attempts to answer absurd hypothetical questions that have been sent into the site using science, research and accurate calculations to provide real-world answers to impossible scenarios like "What would happen if you tried to hit a baseball pitched at 90% of the speed of light (c)?".

The answers are often scary, world-ending but always humourous as Randall writes in his typical tongue-in-cheek manner, peppered with amusing footnotes, panels and asides. If you, like me, are a long time fan of the website then get this book - sure, you may have… Read more
