What’s hot and what’s not?


The Hunger Games

The anticipation is mounting for the adaptation of Suzanne Collins’ novel. Spurred on by the very brief adverts that keep being broadcast.

Nero – Southampton Guildhall – 17th March 2012

London duo Daniel Stephens and Joseph Ray are bringing their popular mix of drum and bass and dubstep to Southampton’s Guildhall this March. A sold-out venue and some decent music… What more do I need to say?

Major League Baseball 2K12 – Out now for PS2, PS3, Xbox 360, Wii, Windows

Here’s a fun fact: This is officially the last game to be released for the PS2, ever. Here’s a not-so-fun fact: No-one really cares. Yet another yearly update of yet another generic sports title that will make yet more profits from fans and spark endless cycles of endless cycles.
