Video Game Review – FAITH: Chapter 1

On an unsanctioned mission, not approved by the vatican, we find ourselves playing FAITH. A pixelated horror game that can be found on Itch.io. In usual fashion, indie games and horror seem to go hand in hand, but how good is this one? What makes this one so thrilling? Does the religious theme have anything controversial thrown into it? I decided to check it out for myself, as I delved deep into the world of FAITH – And who knows? Perhaps if it’s requested, we could move onto FAITH: Chapter 2? Anyway, here’s what I thought of the first title.

What Is WooCommerce?

WordPress users will likely have heard of WooCommerce, but may not be fully aware as to what it is. WooCommerce is a way to set up eCommerce on a WordPress.com, or a WordPress.org website. This is a powerful platform for anyone looking to make some sales and to have ultimate control over their content, such as how their products are displayed or even the types of methods used for getting paid for their products. If you’re a small business and wanting your own shop, this may be a great route for you to go down. Here’s a bit of info on the platform:

BlueStacks: Android Emulation

A while back, I wrote about a game I was getting into – RAID: Shadow Legends. This game has kept me pretty entertained since May, but I constantly have so much energy due to how I played the game so slowly. Considering I have so much, but a phone that is a little bit on the older side, I decided I wanted a more reliable way to play the game. Thankfully, that’s what BlueStacks allows me to do – Play RAID (or any other mobile game) on a much more reliable machine, which can handle all of the games that I throw at it. How does BlueStacks stack up to just owning an Android phone? Here are my thoughts on the emulator.

Quick Website Update

Hey all, without lying about it, I had nothing planned for today as I’ve been out with our friends at Later Levels this weekend. Was awesome catching up with them all, so this post is literally just going to be a very short update on the website, what sort of directions we’re heading in and over to you. Basically, this is just a short catch up post, so I can also catch up with sorting other bits of the website out.

The Addams Family (2019)

They’re kooky and they’re spooky, but will this latest adventure of The Addams Family be at all memorable? An animated story, which presents itself in a great old-school way, but will modern audiences connect with it? Furthermore, will they get the characters right? A huge proponent to the 90’s films and before was how every character had a role within the family; so will this still be the case, or will this now be washed down? I’ve gone ahead and watched the trailers, seen the promo’s out there and I have to say, this is a bit of a mixed bag for me. Here’re my reasons why – And let’s see how much you agree (or disagree) with.

SummerSlam 2019’s Greatest Moment

SummerSlam 2019 has now come and gone. It was a night filled with very few title changes, although a major one changed. We also saw a couple of non-title feuds, which I’m honestly a big fan of. Sometimes, I prefer to watch an angle between people who just want to get to one another; take the current storyline between Kevin Owens and Shane McMahon for instance. Great stuff… But there is one story that I think will have people talking for arguably years to come.

GeekOut Bristol Meet – August 10th: All The Anime Gallery

Another month has gone by and another gallery post! Yes, we got together, we spoke all about anime and we shared our love for the medium. There were people who travelled from far and wide, as well as a couple of costumed people to accompany. We also had a competition where we saw some incredible art drawn by the friends of GeekOut. With a good gathering of geeks, drinks were a-flowing and of course, we had plenty of games to play. So with all that said, let’s take a look at the images that makes up yesterday’s GeekOut Bristol Meet.

Tekken Season Pass 3 – A New Character?

Not too long ago, the Tekken world got an announcement; there will be more characters and amongst them is a brand new character. If you’re a fan of fighting games, the resurgence of the genre has been an incredible thing to watch. When Tekken 7 came out (worldwide) back in 2017, people across the world got the itch to play the long lasting franchise and it pulled in new and old fans alike. Two years on, Tekken 7 is moving into Season Pass 3, where they will be adding another couple of characters, one of which is a totally new character; although there are similarities to an old favourite.

Anime Review: JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure – Golden Wind

Another season of JoJo is over and this one was all about becoming a Gang-Star. Young Giorno Giovanna is the son of DIO, which gives Jotaro and co a reason to be suspicious. They send Koichi to find and investigate Giorno, but after a brief encounter with the wannabe Gang-Star, they part ways. How does Giorno fit into the overarching JoJo story and what was this arc all about? This article features very minor spoilers, but now that this season is over, read on!
