So, well, life is about to get odd. I basically couldn't find a place to live which I could afford in time with my looming end of tenancy deadline. But I have found somewhere (continued in comments).

 
 
 

Less than 4 weeks to find a place and move. Pretty broke. Not turning heating on as can't afford it. Just trying to get to February. If I can do that, I think I'll be OK.

 
 
 

I never thought Panzer Dragoon would get a remake. Like, having it be ported seemed unlikely. But this, man, this is some good news.

 
 
 

Is Devil May Cry the first videogame series to be rebooted, and then have the original come back? (Not sure if Mega Man counts).

 
 
 

Big Monster Hunter news coming tomorrow!

 
 
 

Am I the only one who thinks it would have been awesome if Nintendo gave zero information about Smash? Like just a release date and confirming everyone from the N64 original was on it?

 
 
 

Well, things have taken a turn for the much worse. Details in the comments!

 
 
 

Oddworld has been Remastered, CTR is getting a remaster, now SNK, give me a Metal Slug X HD with hand drawn sprites that match the drawings the old sprites were digitised from and I'll have everything I've wanted. Make it happen SNK, I beleive in you.

 
 
 

Wasn't there meant to be some cool Capcom premier on this? Getting pretty tired...

 
 
 

Well, honestly didn't predict that Smash announcement.

 
 
 

So... How long is the game awards?

 
 
 

CTR is back. Not sure about the changing karts, but meh, we'll see how it goes.

 
 
 

That Game Awards guy seems like a massive dick...

 
 
 

Doing a 10pm to 6am overnight shift, pretty bored so... AMA!

 
 
 

For anyone who was interested in that super awesome R-type model of the level 1 boss, Play-Asia is now taking preorders.

 
 
 

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...

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
