Guest Writer Gabriel Marcoccia on ‘Horizon: Frozen Wilds’ DLC Review

All of the best game play moments and machine fighting action from the hit open world game Horizon returns in Guerrilla Games’ latest add on – Frozen Wilds. This DLC comes packed with more high-stake quests, intriguing side missions and a load of new weapons, armours and abilities to help you square off against some of the baddest machines birthed by GAIA prime. In this new chapter of the game, Aloy returns to explore a demonic plague that appears to be corrupting the machines surrounding the Banuk tribe in a snowy covered, heavily forested area known as ‘The Cut’. While Frozen Wilds is a self-contained stand-alone story, the episode itself ties in seamlessly with the tight knit story arc of Zero Dawn – throwing gentle nods to familiar characters and events from the main story. As most fans of the game likely finished Horizon earlier this year, the tight integration with the main story arc really kicks off the adventure while still rooting you in Horizon’s lore.

31 Days of Horror – visiting the house of horrors of Resident Evil: Biohazard

If you’ve ever wondered what it would be like to sit at the Sawyer family dinner table in the original Texas Chainsaw Massacre, or stare across from one of the Firefly Family from Rob Zombie’s House of 1,000 Corpses, look no further than Resident Evil: Biohazard.

The Capcom franchise, which made its debut on the original PlayStation console all the way back in 1996, was an originator of the survival horror genre of gaming in addition to spawning several sequels and a hugely successful movie series that released its concluding entry this past January.  Each Resident Evil spin-off has had their fair share of lovers and haters, but following the muted response to Resident Evil 6’s shifted focus towards action gaming tropes rather than horror, it was clear to Capcom that a new Resident Evil installment would need to up the scare factor.

Our friends at WB and LEGO are always releasing outstanding video games that are legit fun for the whole family. In my case, the arrival of a new game like LEGO Ninjago Movie Video Game always means sitting down with my little princess in front of  our tv and PlayStation 4 and getting our game on.

31 Days of Horror: The Unholy Outlast Trinity Reviewed

When it was released in 2014, Outlast was considered by many to be the scariest game of all time. While that may be a bold statement, the first person experience, which focused on a freelance journalist exploring an abandoned asylum, managed to deliver the scares. A follow-up was always going to have significant pressure to live up to the original and, depending on your relationship with the Good Book, Outlast 2 manages the feat.

BBP! Guide To Fan Expo Canada 2017: Preview #FXC17

There’s a well-known, partly tongue-in-cheek saying, that every Torontonian knows: The City of Toronto sees two seasons – winter and construction.

With the gut-bursting pop culture excitement of this coming long weekend, I’m wondering if we can’t add a third season into the mix, even if it is a relatively short one! Canada’s largest and most anticipated pop culture experience that ranges from comic books to movies and television to anime to gaming to toys…and so much more… is finally back!

Fan Expo Canada 2017 is here!

After waiting through twelve months of winter and construction, the most eye-popping weekend of the year begins on Thursday at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre and runs through Sunday afternoon. And, of course, Biff Bam Pop! will be there!

Here, then, is our prelude to all the sights, sounds, symposiums, breakout sessions, photo-ops and merchandise you need to experience over the coming four days…

With an expectation of over 129,000 people in attendance this year, make sure you hydrate, wear comfy shoes, and follow us around the pop culture floor of Fan Expo Canada 2017!
