This five-part limited series is based on the acclaimed novels by Edward St. Aubyn. It tracks Patrick from a privileged but deeply traumatic childhood in the South of France, through severe substance abuse in his twenties in New York and, ultimately, toward recovery back home in Britain. Patrick Melrose (Benedict Cumberbatch) gleefully skewers the British upper class through the story of an aristocratic and funny playboy struggling to overcome the damage inflicted by an abusive father (Hugo Weaving , The Matrix and The Lord of The Rings) and a mother (Jennifer Jason Leigh, The Hateful Eight) who tacitly condoned the behaviour. 

Benedict Cumberbatch won his first BAFTA for Best British Actor for his title role in Patrick Melrose, which also won Best Mini-Series, Writer, and Production Design. 

The five part mini-series is available to stream now on Showmax.

No regenerating health bars. No conveniently placed ammo drops. It’s just the player, outnumbered and outgunned, grabbing weapons off fallen enemies to shoot, slice, and manoeuvre through a hurricane of slow-motion bullets.

With its stylised graphics, the game finally adds something new to the FPS genre. Superhot’s polished, minimalist visual language helps players focus on what’s most important – the fluid gameplay and the cinematic beauty of the fight.

The game took thirty months to make, meaning thousands of hours were put into development and design. From its humble origins in the 7 Day FPS game jam, through a hugely successful Kickstarter campaign, to an array of awards and nominations from industry experts, Superhot is a labour of love by its independent, dedicated team and thousands of backers from all around the globe.

It has the following features:

• Endless Mode – how long can you last against unyielding waves of enemies?
• Challenge Mode – take on Superhot with your bare hands, no restarts, timed runs, and more.
• Extras – delve further into Superhot with mini-games, ASCII art, and [redacted].

The game is available now on the Nintendo Switch eShop for R150.
