John Pinnick

I am a father, a husband and a spartan. I started out gaming as a blue hedgehog, then I traded in my racing shoes for a gender-neutral space suit. From there it was a blur, I lived through fantasies that were not so final, landed on universe ending rings, and more recently I have defended Azeroth from Orcs. Lots. Of. Orcs. Oh, also, whose foot prints are these?

What is in Your Destiny? PC Release, Iron Banana, and Prestige Raid. Again.

B – A – N – N – E – R Much to the dismay of myself (and others?), Iron Banner is only a week long event – just like the Faction Rally event. Now, we’ve still h...

Raiders of the Broken Planet review

Parental Warning! This game is NOT for kiddies or those with sensitive eyes and ears. I had to hit mute quite quickly during the first main cut scene of the game. Arse shots for you, me, and everybody. Your ship swoops in, teleports you down to the surface of the planet, then leaves in as quick a fashion. A formless voice gives you a set of instructions, a little bit of exposition, then you are on...

Destiny 2 review

Here it is, at long last, the Destiny 2 review from TiX! I’d apologise for it taking so long, but for those of you who have ever played Destiny or a game like it, you’ll know it can’t be summed up so quick – not whilst also keeping family and other work in order! We settled on doing something a little different for this review, a round-table of sorts. I’d like to than...
