UEA Media Collective’s Platformer

The UEA Media Collective has continued its gradual branching-out into all manner of media and entertainment this academic year, particularly with the new online show on video games, Platformer, being released bimonthly on UEA TV. As Venue draws to an end this semester, let’s look back on the Let’s Play series – directed and presented…


UEA’s favourite games of the academic year

Resident Evil 2 remake (PC, PS4, Xbox One) I feared that after 20 years this remake of the survival horror classic would forget everything that made the original so special, but it pulled through with excellent results. I was especially impressed by the fear-factor brought on by Mr X, who went from an easily dispatched…


Kingdom Hearts 3

Brought to you from a wonderful seventeen-year old collaboration between Disney Interactive and Square Enix, Kingdom Hearts 3 is out after much anticipation from fans of the series. Released last month on both Playstation 4 and Xbox One, the game marks the final chapter in the Dark Seekers trilogy, which began back in 2002 with…

Fallout 76

Last fortnight, Bethesda finally released one of the most speculated but highly anticipated releases of 2018 with quite the bang – a nuclear bang, to be more specific.
