24, living in England. A keen lover of films, video games and music. Some would argue I'm too sarcastic for my own good. They would be right.
Last week I posted a review of 1917. Needless to say, I rather liked it. If you missed it, you can click here and see what I thought in-depth.
World War One is a period of time that doesn't receive a lot of attention in the movie industry. Maybe it is because the powers that be got involved for less-than-noble reasons, so it wouldn't seem right to try and make a film on the matter. But for the hundreds of thousands of everyman soldiers that thought and died in battle, this was just them following orders, even if they didn't always agree with them.
I was fairly late to the anxiety party, I can't say it was one I particularly wanted to be invited to after hanging around the depression get-togethers for too long.
Yeah I know I used an Avengers quote; tell me it doesn't fit here. There's another Call of Duty coming out this year. Elsewhere, the Pope sh*ts in the woods and bears are catholic, or however the saying goes.

Hello, Vocal and the internet! *Crowd screaming* Hello and welcome to the inaugural 2019 PIMA awards! *Crowd is throwing flowers now*
Around this time last year, I threw a list of games together I enjoyed playing throughout the course of 2017. In the grand scheme of things it didn't do too well, barely scraped 20 reads and I wasn't very clear in what I was trying to do with it. I called it Games I had fun with, but some of the titles in the list (namely Hellblade) wasn't fun in the sense of joyfulness, but it was a powerful experience which I loved, hence the title change here.
Earlier this week, I brought myself to finish Before the Storm, the prequel to what became one of my all-time favourite games, Life is Strange. I'll admit, I took a while to even purchase it, and longer still to play it. I could, and at times still can, feel the emotional hangover from the original.
