Hex Picks: RPGs

No, I've not finished my Edge of Tomorrow review. Not very professional, I know, but I'm currently living at my aunt's house as I scout for a flat and get ready to start a new job. It's fun and exciting - but not ideal for writing.

Still time for a quick recommendation, though! This week Hex Dimension focused on what's probably my favourite gaming genre: the mighty RPG. I wrote about my all-time favourite, but somehow managed to write almost nothing about the game itself. It got personal and weird. Still worth a read, though, 'cos there's some fantastic games on the list.

Don't forget - you can sign up for Hex's weekly newsletter if you don't want to miss out on some great, nerdy stuff!

Hex Picks: Movie Adaptations

It's that time again! This week the team took a look at films adapted from comics or novels. There's quite a varied and interesting selection, and I absolutely agree with every choice on the list. Take a look and let us know what you think!

Later this week I'll be reviewing Edge of Tomorrow, in which Tom Cruise dies a lot, so keep your eyes peeled for that too.

Hex Dimension: Agents of SHIELD is better than Captain America 2

In yesterday's update I mentioned that my Agents of SHIELD piece, which I've been writing for far too long, would finally be hitting Hex Dimension on Thursday this week. But what I've written is so stunningly important that it's been bumped up the schedule and actually went live today. I'm just that good!

Joking aside, I am quite pleased with how this ended up. I think it's the best thing I've written in a while (it's certainly the most focused) and I hope you'll check it out.

So, if you'd like to know my thoughts on the recently-ended Agents of SHIELD, and how it compares to the similarly-themed Captain America: The Winter Soldier, you can find out in my latest neutral, even-handed piece:

Hex Picks: Favourite X-Men and Supernatural Novels

Another quick update to plug the two latest weekly recommendations at Hex Dimension.

Up first is a look at our favourite X-Men, to celebrate the release of the new film (which I'm finally seeing tonight). Contains spoilers for the comics, but not the film.

Up second - and freshly posted today - we took a look at supernatural fiction. It's not a topic I thought I'd have anything to say about, but it turns out I did. And, in true supernatural fashion, I spookily wrote almost the exact same thing as my brother...

That's it for now but, following Friday's finale, my long-gestating piece on Agents of SHIELD is finally done. It's due to hit the website on Thursday, so I'll see you then!
