Pokemon GO Halloween 2017

We’re back once again with another update of Pokemon Go, a game which has kept going through the thick and thin of it. It’s lasted well over a year, with the game still attracting millions of players to it on a regular basis. The last update was done back in June of this year, where we were introduced to the raid mechanic. Now we’re back once more, but this time around, things have gotten spooky once more! Of course, last year, we saw Gastly’s, Haunter’s and even Marrowak’s (Sorry Gen I players for those sad memories!) What do we get for this year’s Halloween special?

GeekOut Bristol Meet – October 14th: VAMP-TASTICAL! Gallery

Blah! We vant to suck your blood– Oh dear, that’s the worst vampire cliche ever.

We came, we saw, we drank and we dined. GeekOut Bristol Meet was as loud as ever, seemingly slightly busier than usual and with a competition that really seemed to gnaw at everybodies necks. So whilst we were being so merry, time went by so quickly as we had games on the go, people discussing everything, including a rather deep conversation about life in the conservatory. Deep stuff, guys.

Pumpkins & Halloween

As we approach All Hallows’ Eve, tales of ghosts and ghouls become commonplace. Today, I wish to tell you a tale of a young man and a young lady, by the names of Ness and Paula, who fought off unspeakable evils.

This time, it wasn’t a ghost or a ghoul, but rather it was the wickedness of humanity itself, with an injection of the macabre. This is the story of Ness and Paula encountering the Trick or Trick Kid.

Mobile Game Review: Hyper Heroes

Ever felt that heroes weren’t active enough? That they were all a little too sluggish; a little too slow to the action?

Well then, this very specific scenario has finally got a solution, as we check out the mobile game for Android and iOS, Hyper Heroes. Is it any good, or is it a little too charged with sugar?
