GAME: Devil May Cry (PS3)

Get 2013 off to the perfect start with action-fest DmC, available to download via PlayStation® Store on your PS3. Already hailed as the best Devil May Cry game yet, this smart, slick series reboot-cum-origins story gives lead character Dante a more youthful makeover, but franchise fans needn’t worry: DmC is simply awesome and features enough nods to previous instalments to keep everyone happy. Hack, slash and shoot your way through each level, with Dante summoning both Angel and Demon powers at will. Vibrant, visceral and visually dazzling, developer Ninja Theory has delivered.

With a furious, pounding heavy metal soundtrack to accompany the furious fun, this is a white-knuckle ride of a game to be enjoyed with the volume cranked up.

GAME: Ni No Kuni (PS3)

NiNi No Kuni is a jaw-dropping RPG, available to pre-order ahead of its release date.

You are Oliver, a boy who journeys to the parallel world of Ni No Kuni in a bid to bring his mother back from the dead, befriending and battling various creatures along the way. From the Oscar-winning Studio Ghibli, responsible for both Spirited Away and Howl’s Moving Castle, prepare to embrace something truly magical.

GAME: The Cave (PS3)

If you’re a gamer of a certain age, the words Monkey Island will provoke memories of sitting in front of a computer until the small hours. Ron Gilbert, the man behind that seminal graphic adventure game, is back with The Cave, available to download across PS3 and PS Vita. The humour is pitch black in this 2D platform-puzzler, as seven characters are drawn to the titular cave. It’s surprising how pleasing it is to find the solutions.

FILM: The Expendables 2

If you’re a fan of big, bombastic Eighties action films, then you may have found your own personal nirvana in The Expendables 2. Sylvester Stallone teams up with Arnold Schwarzenegger, Bruce Willis and Jason Statham to lock horns with Jean Claude Van Damme in one of the most unashamedly enjoyable films of recent years. As good as Sly and the gang are, the Chuck Norris cameo remains the franchise highpoint

FILM: Total Recall

This recent adaptation of Philip K Dick’s acclaimed short story We Can Remember It For You Wholesale has plenty of references for Arnie fans, but differs greatly from the 1991 Schwarzenegger film, with no Mars, better action and improved acting. Colin Farrell shines in the lead role of Douglas Quaid, Bryan Cranston has a ball as villainous Cohaagen, while director Len Wiseman maintains a breathless pace.

FILM: The Sweeney

London has rarely looked better than in Nick Love’s white-knuckle police thriller The Sweeney, loosely based on the seminal TV series that starred John Thaw as Jack Regan. Here, Ray Winstone is Regan, dominating proceedings with a commanding, charismatic performance. While his team undergoes an internal investigation, Winstone’s Regan doesn’t so much as embrace middle age, as violently choke it to death.

FILM: Lawless

One of the best casts of last year combine for this gripping saga about the Bondurant clan, a rich mix of bootleggers who wreaked havoc across Depression-era Franklin County, Virginia. Shia LeBeouf goes a long way to distancing himself from more youthful fare, Tom Hardy continues to establish himself as a leading man of undoubted charisma, but it’s Jessica Chastain who steals the show as love interest Maggie Beauford.

TV SERIES: The Killing (Forbrydelsen) Seasons 1-3

Unlike the majority of crime dramas, The Killing stands out because its lead character makes mistakes. As in life-costing errors. Whereas most TV detectives have everything conveniently wrapped up inside an hour with nary a slip-up along the way, The Killing’s Sarah Lund (Sophie Grabol) seemingly stumbles from one mishap to another, which merely ups the unpredictability stakes thereby making the show all the more appealing. Fully formed three-dimensional characters (take charismatic Troels Hartmann in Series 1, or well-intentioned Thomas Buch in Series 2), and a constantly evolving plot contribute to make this global Danish hit one of the best crime dramas of all time.
