Well after a bit of faffing about, my Switch's audio and discord chat play through the same headset. Nintendo, the master of online innovation.

 
 
 

Aztecha, a love letter to Bionic Commando? Remember when it was revealed his arm was powered by his dead wife? No one? Just me? Cool.

 
 
 

Konami announced a game?!?! Jesus christ couldn't have predicted that...

 
 
 

So, there's an issue with MH Rise... (spoilers below).

 
 
 

Mistaking the weight of a taser for a gun is like using a real gun and shooting your TV while playing Duck Hunt.

 
 
 

I was excited to see what Naughty Dog would bring to the PS5...

 
 
 

So Capcom are making absolute bank with Resi and Monster Hunter. So, can we have a sequel to Okami now? Like come on, do something risky.

 
 
 

The R-Type Final 2 classic stages are paid DLC for non-backers, just so you know.

 
 
 

So PC gamers finally get Kingdom Hearts. Wondering if the series is for you? Should you buy it? See comments section for advice.

 
 
 
 

As someone who has played MH since MH Freedom, here's some thoughts (in the comments).

 
 
 

Don't know why but man, this vibes well with me.



 
 
 

"Capcom is ramping up the Resident Evil Village hype train by sending out life-size standees of its chief antagonist, Lady Dimitrescu." Capcom is on it lately.

 
 
 

MH Rise Tip: do a rampage mission in village before the guild of you want any form of tutorial.

 
 
 

The new Ghost 'n Goblins is really good. Like better than I expected by far and better than I ever thought a new one would be. Not sure if it takes the crown as the best but man, it's up there.

 
 
 

Thank god Amiibo are so easy to pirate (chip wise) being that Nintendo's answer to how to get the Hello Kitty stuff on Animal Crossing in the UK is "no"

 
 
 

So a NeoGeo Pocket Color collection just dropped on the Switch, with the Metal Slug games and a stupidly detailed packaging viewer.

 
 
 

Probably the only mashup I know where it exceeds the source material. #mashuptoid (also, weren't these known as vs back in the day?)



 
 
 

Eh he's family so, yeah - but it works.



 
 
 

The fact EA is surprised that a gambling system that exploits its users is being exploited is unreal.

 
 
 

Future prediction: that new TMNT game is going to be another Scott Pilgrim like situation.

 
 
 

Probably one of the best female characters I know, never gives up. Leona Ozaki. #womentoid


 
 
 

Maybe I'm old and from a time where owning a game (like a VHS) meant you played it until it was worn to the bone. But the amount of games some people have on the Switch is mad. Like over 100 games for a 4 year old system? That's 25 games a year.

 
 
 

Well, fun day of letting the team know we're all at risk of redundancy. Same day one gets told his mother has breast cancer and a week after another's husband is diagnosed with Motor neurone disease. 2021, fuck me dead.

 
 
 

The place I work is closing in September. I don't even know what to say.

 
 


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
Mother 3
Day of the Tentacle
