So those that know me personally know how much I love Rammstein. It’s almost become a tad worrying for some of them and it’s actually got them to believe that I am actually fluent German, even though I only know whatever words that were in Rammstein’s songs. And trust me, they are not your everyday conversation phrases! But now while Rammstein is on a break, lead singer Till Lindemann has joined up with Peter Tagtgren to produce his new project “Lindemann.” They’re first single is out and this is what I thought of it!

As we know the Unreal Engine was one of the best engines for making games, it has been used in almost all major AAA titles and has really set the bar for graphics, lighting, physics and all the other lovely stuff that makes our games look and feel like real life! I remember back in the day when Gears of War 2 was being revealed and they showed off the next generation of Unreal Software and they did this by shooting a cube of meat over and over within the GoW game….this blew our minds! And now here we are, Unreal Engine 4 and an unbelievably well made video showing off the sheer power of this new engine. Read the rest of this entry »

Wow! It’s been a year already since I first experienced the joyous splendour of Eirtakon. And now there I was, at the doors of Croke Park, press pass in one hand and a notepad in the other, but just like any lively convention that I get the honour of attending I didn’t take many notes this year, nor did I even have the time to look at my phone for the majority of the weekend, why? Because everybody was having so much dang fun that it didn’t seem necessary to distract ourselves with technology and Facebook. The only time that a phone was taken out was to snap the odd selfie or picture with a cosplayer, and boy were there many to be snapped! Read the rest of this entry »

This is a new mini series I’ll be trying to do every now and again, this series will not be limited to film, there will be film, gaming and TVs shows thrown into the mixture just to make it that much more interesting.

These “Top X” videos will be uploaded onto Akroview’s YouTube channel, which you can find here. They will then be uploaded to Akroview.com. Read the rest of this entry »

So I decided to attend the D.I.C.E convention out in Dundrum Centre over the weekend and I did exactly what I said I wouldn’t, I spent a lot of money on comics! And one of the comics that I was looking to pick up was London Horror Comic by the twisted and amazing mind of John-Paul Kamath. I first was introduced to LHC last year at the same convention and I think I fell in love, the stories that we’re told in the comic we’re very,very original. Sometimes even eye brow raising and curious, but that’s what this anthology brings to the market.

Nowadays we live in a  world where everything is digital now, books can be read online, kindles are the new fashion accessory, movies can be streamed online and even the majority of the TV shows that people watch seemed to be streamed from their laptop on their TV. This actually prompted a bill to be passed here in Ireland to tax the people if they owned an electronic device that could have access to the internet and could stream tv shows, since it was costing the government because people didn’t need to buy a TV license to watch their shows on the TV. This didn’t last very long, there was outrage because this affected people that didn’t own a TV too.They had all the entertainment they needed either sitting on their lap or hiding away in their pocket.

This new realm of digital purchasing has been especially prevalent in the gaming world with almost all of the standard edition of games being bought on online marketplaces and through stores built into the consoles themselves. Although this is a handy and easy way to get gamers their games it doesn’t have the same feeling of waiting outside a games store for a midnight launch, call me old fashioned but I still love the excitement of that. (Yes I know..NEEEERRRRDDDD!!!)

There is a combined sigh of relief and despair going across the county now as what seemed to be the biggest convention of the year has closed it doors. And I’m well aware that this review is very late in being published,I have no one else but myself to blame on that one, but the majority of my time after the con was spent tearing the place down and sleeping! But I do have an opinion on it, so let’s get into that shall we! Read the rest of this entry »
