Well I've been kinda silent for a long time. Things aren't great. Will write a blog about it or something. But just want to pop back to say Happy Birthday to Chris :)

 
 
 

Pretty much facing being homeless soon :/

 
 
 

It finnally arrived! Light up marquee, working trackball, an exact mini replica of the original and it is BEAUTIFUL! (More photos in comments).


 
 
 

So I finally got round to watching Black Panther. Spoilery thoughts in the comments...

 
 
 
 

IGN gave Astro Bot for the PSVR a 9... That means that think it's better than Moss (which they gave a 8.4). Every 9 or over scored game there always stinks of bribes...

 
 
 

I don't know exactly what it was, but man The Red Turtle made me cry like an anime fan on prom night...

 
 
 

I really don't know how to feel about Night in the Woods. It feels too real and I'm worried with the direction it seems to be going in if I might just not want to know how it ends...

 
 
 

So I just watched Mandy... yeah this is one of those things that aren't for me...

 
 
 

How the hell did I ever 1cc Ikaruga? Playing it again after many, many years and I'm using credits just to get through sections, never mind levels...

 
 
 

Did I miss something about someone not liking women in videogames?

 
 
 

Tell me a tale better than that which is being told...

 
 
 

The Neogeo Mini seems to have a fair bit of space in it. Sure it can fit a battery, but can it modded to run a Rasberry Pi...

 
 
 

Ready Player One Spoilers in Comments

 
 
 

Guacamelee!2 just isn't as great as I think it should be. Like, the first one is just the better game, but I have no idea why...

 
 
 

So in my quest to unblock the dude I accidentally blocked it would seem I don't apparently actually have a disqus account...

 
 
 

"the red blood in Metal Slug replaced by sprays of white mist" God damn it SNK...

 
 
 

While reporting and blocking all the spambots about the naked teacher list, it appears I've accidentally blocked an actual member (touch screens are hard) - how do I see my block list?

 
 
 

Anyone fancy a free album? Forget what it's for. Could be Nirvana Live at MTV, could be Alice Cooper's Welcome to my Nightmare. Who knows...


 
 
 

Man with that Capcom Beat 'em Up collection I really thought they were going to announce Aliens Vs Predator was going to be in it...

 
 
 

US people, Amazon now has your Neogeo minis in, move fast if you want one.

 
 
 

If anyone is still Pokemon Going, a buddy of mine could do with some more mates: 2661 0334 6071 And if you missed mine it's: 3105 0661 7845 Comes in handy for trading Pokemon from gift eggs for that sweet sweet distance.

 
 
 

These spam comments are getting might annoying...

 
 
 

So may have pre-ordered this...


 
 
 

Well after a fair bit of faf - I can now play vinyls perfectly. I can already feel my wallet getting sad.

 
 


About Goemarone of us since 12:05 AM on 06.27.2017

I started as a massive Nintendo fan. I had a SNES before, but it was really the N64 I got on my 10th birthday that really got me into gaming. I stuck with Nintendo pretty much exclusively until the DS rolled out and I played NSMB - man I hated that game. It looked awful, sounded awful and was so easy it was hardly worth paying attention to what you were doing.

The PSP and Monster Hunter stole away hundreds of hours of life and that's when I really started to look at Sony. I had missed great games like Okami, God of War (it was cool at the time), Gradius V and Metal Gear Solid

With the promise of Metal Gear Solid and Monster Hunter on the PS3 I snagged one as soon as I was able. In the long wait (and Monster Hunter jumping to Nintendo...) I picked up Uncharted. My god, what a game! And more followed - Uncharted 2 was excellent, Catherine, Rayman Origins, The Last of Us - man the PS3 was amazing. Yes I still played the 'essential' Nintendo titles (and spent hours on my 3DS when Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate landed - and 100s more on Generations) but the PlayStation had become my main shabang for modern gaming.

I'm also a huge retro fan. Having loved the games I played as a kid, and discovering the earlier titles in franchises I loved - but it was really when I got into sprite ripping and the world of emulation that I truly discovered all there was out there on offer.

Top 10 Games:

Metal Slug X
DoDonPachi
Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate
Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island
Frogs and Flies
Catherine
Doom (2016)
Okami
Valiant Hearts
Day of the Tentacle
