Call Of Duty: Black Ops II Original Soundtrack by Jack Wall   (album review)

The main theme is composed by Reznor, giving the soundtrack a bit of name value but aside from the opening track which is pretty amazing and the orchestral version of it, the majority of the album is written by Jack Wall. Mozart’s ‘Symphony No. 40 In G Minor’ does also feature at the mid-way point […]

Destiny… not Stargate Universe, but Bungie’s Halo replacement.

There are big games and then there are BIG computer games… and the Halo replacement game from Bungie is certainly one such beast. It’s called Destiny and here’s the first trailer for the game. This one is about the last city on Earth, after humanity has had its ass handed to it by an alien […]

Star Trek: The Game.

There’s not just a new Star Trek movie coming up, there’s also a tie-in game called – yes, you guessed it – Star Trek: The Game. I like it. Kind of direct, don’t you think? No nonsense-sounding!

Ultramarines: A Warhammer 40,000 movie… good news, bad news.

We’ve got some good news and we’ve got some bad news. The good news is that the Warhammer 40K film, Ultramarines: A Warhammer 40,000 Movie, is coming soon. The bad news is that it looks like the between-scenes animation sequences of a not very good 3D shooter game, with (in our opinion) not very good […]

Aliens: Colonial Marines… get some!

There’s a new trailer out for the upcoming Aliens: Colonial Marines shooter. This game looks like it’s captured the spirit of the film Aliens, but my main worry is that apart from a few old farts like me, how many of the kiddie gaming audience are going to remember this film fondly these days?
