Grip has just been announced for the PS4. It’s a racer. I have no idea what it is but it has split-screen so I’m basically buying it.


So after 2 server tests, pretty much immediately after launch Sea of Thieves is stopping any new players joining while they sort out server issues...


Deviljho is getting mighty close...


So the Wii store is closing and not allowing people to re-download past purchases ever. You know, I can still download stuff for my PSP... Nintendo, get with the times!


Bubble Bobble is the Stupidest Game Ever

First things first, I'm not saying I don't like Bubble Bobble. No. Bubble Bobble is great, I love Bubble Bobble, but man oh man is it a dumb game.  So in Bubble Bobble you play as 'Bubby' or 'Bobby' - I'm pretty sure Bubby isn't a...


Only I could manage to bend my thumb backwards taking any sock off ruining my plan of marathon gaming tomorrow...


An I missing something with the new Kirby? Like it’s good (not amazing) and man, oh man, is it short...


I now have a Virtual Boy controller that uses USB. Today has been a long day...


Fluffy socks are pretty awesome. That is all.


Right, I’ve heard there’s some stupidly expensive hdmi converter for the GameCube BUT as far as I know the Wii plays every NGC game and can use a component cable - so what’s the point?


Beating Nostalgia: When New is better - Pt 2

I think more so than in any other medium nostalgia is the most powerful in videogames. Sure, you can enjoy old movies from when you were a kid (even if you know they are bad) and listening to old songs will bring back memories (songs, ...


Robot Wars has been axed :(


“As of 2015, the Master System is the longest-lived game console (30 years and continuing), due to its high popularity in Brazil resulting in continuous production.” Whaaaaaaat? Does this mean games are still being made?


Man being old kinda sucks. Like you ask what a reveal cake is, people upvote it but no one tells you. So you Google it. And then you learn about reveal parties and man, just what the hell is happening in the world. Like how do people’s brains even work.


Hmm 4:24 am... I get it brain, we ain’t sleeping tonight...


You know, I reckon a Goemon game would sell on the Switch. Optional motion control Impact fights with nice local co-op. Man I’d totally buy that...


Oh America and you’re trickiness of having a different clock changing date...


Wow Nintendo, you’re really killing my wallet here...


Oh man the nostalgia with that DJ Max Respect Demo...


So... anyone else's partner meow in there sleep?


Well someone has reached HR 999 in Monster Hunter...


So finally got some time with Moss today. Leaning towards Quill and having her reach out towards you is just freaking adorable.


Day 2 (or is it 3?) of owning Moss: still have had no time to play it. My PS4 must be so cold...


Bloodborne and Ratchet and Clank on PS+ free games next month? Pretty good, pretty, pretty good.


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