This week, Marvel Comics creator, Stan Lee died. Chella pays tribute to her childhood hero and looks at the progressive politics Lee placed at the heart of his comics empire. The world will surely miss this creative, progressive and wonderful person.

Jeff is Chella’s favourite thing about the latest Spider-Man game, but he’s also an example of the quality of the writing, which sets this game apart.
Chella heads to ancient Greece and delivers her first impressions of Assassin’s Creed Odyssey. Kassandra is a charming female protagonist, taking the helm of the biggest game of the series. The first few hours show a game focused on combat rather than stealthy assassinations.

Shadow of the Tomb Raider is the next adventure for Lara Croft, but this is a series that’s steeped in colonialism and the idea of the white saviour. Chella looks at gameplay videos for the new game and worries that this problem isn’t going away any time soon.
No Man’s Sky Next is the big update from Hello Games, bringing multi-player, space battles and character customisation. Chella goes back into space to see how all the changes have enhanced the game and whether it’s enough to diffuse the backlash.
It’s hot in the UK, so Chella is looking for games to keep her cool and relaxed. No enemies, no stress, just beautiful, relaxing games for some chilled summer vibes.
