EA Sports – Madden 21 Review

As with pretty much every EA game, there is a new sports game release every year just ahead of the new season...most of the time it's pretty much the same game with a new trick or two up it's sleeve. Well to be perfectly honest since the era of Ultimate Team games in and micro-transactions I'm starting to get...

EA Play Now Free For All Xbox Game Pass Ultimate Members

The mental battle in my mind rages between which console I'm going to opt for this year. Yes, I know it's a bit odd that I've not caved and picked yet, a bit like that undecided voter on election day in the US. If this sounds like you, you've decided on Xbox Series X or are just ignoring it...

Irish Sky customers to lose the Discovery Channel and 12 others

Irish Sky customers to lose discovery
I'm a little bit outraged by this. Probably about as outraged as I am by the History Channel having being allowed to associate themselves with history. Discovery Communications and Sky are at loggerheads. Think LUAS strike, but this is actually important. Ultimately, Irish Sky customers are set to lose twelve channels from 1st February. To make things worse, there pretty decent channels too. What...
