So very close! - Doctor Who: Listen Review

Pop the streamers! Crack open the champagne! Series 8 has reached a good episode…sort of. It only took four attempts. Listen has a great premise, a decent execution, and opens up some new mysteries around Danny Pink. Unfortunately it’s let down by an ending that left me (and I’m sure others) thinking “Nah”. Spoilers for tonight's episode ahead.

Been there, Done that - Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 Review

Gabriel Belmont is back, now going under the name Dracula. Fulfilling the prophecy that those who defeat the Lords of Shadow shall sit on their throne and become the Prince of Darkness, Gabriel is now a vampire, and not a very nice one. Unfortunately, the sequel to the hugely successful reboot doesn’t follow in the footsteps of its predecessor, leaving us with a boring action game that soils the name of Dracula.
