Happy Birthday Alphadeus. May the tides of fortune soon flow in your favour.


As films about bears doing cocaine go, Cocaine Bear is definitely in the top 5.


One of the best uses of AI I've seen.


I wonder how that Dilbert comic is doing... oh.


Have been fully off the cigs for about 2 weeks now (been slowly quitting since... May?). The world stinks. Like people stink. Metal stinks. Cardboard stinks. This sense of smell business is overrated.


Microsoft has announced it has finalised a 10-year agreement to launch Call of Duty on Nintendo platforms on "the same day as Xbox, with full feature and content parity".


So Atomic Heart gets 3 paragraphs of "hey maybe look into this before buying because of connections to Russia" but Hogwarts gets nothing. Not a "hey look into this because of ties with someone who hates trans people." Hmm.


This is quality


Eh. It was okay. 4/10.


PSA: Daytona USA is on that Xbox de-listing list. Grab it while you can.


The first son of Pablo Escobar is coming to a pub like 30 minutes from my house to do a book reading. What a time to be alive.


So, I've never been big on Star Wars prequel stuff. But due to boredom decided to watch Clone Wars (the 2D one) and damn, it was brilliant. As it ends where Episode 3 begins thought I'd give that another go. And it's terrible. Like worse than I remember.


Drainus coming to the Switch and a new Gorillaz album, February is looking pretty decent. Who knows maybe the MH: Rise update will even add something interesting.


So Sonic has a demo on the Switch but not PS5... huh...


Arekkz is leaving Arekkz Gaming...


First book of 2023: Long Live the Pumpkin Queen. An official sequel to the film and, honestly, a worthy one. Like throw a few songs in there (some obvious places they'd fit) and you'd have yourself a sequel I think most would be happy with.


Apparently there's a new Puss in Boots film. No idea when/if it's ever coming anywhere in the UK but it's already on the Internet. Is pretty good.


Meant to be £200. On offer for £150. 20% off staff discount plus a load of vouchers (because I'm great at my job) making it £75. I'm the best uncle. (Discount card for scale).


Yeah... not a big year of gaming for me...


Game Awards starting soon. Please share you hot takes and bad opinions over on the FP article.


They don't make 'em like they used to


Apparently Ninja Gaiden and DoA are being rebooted.


I have terrible news. Deviljho doesn't, and has never, ate it's own severed tail. It's all lie.


Okay, without sounding weird - is it like pretty much the norm that America doesn't tidy up after disasters? Be it hurricanes or trainwrecks, the destruction just seems to be left where it is.


Capcom - stop doing paid DLC weapons. You're being a lil shit.


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)
Mother 3
Day of the Tentacle
