With how perfect the design of the Switch is, that flappy stand is utter ass.

 
 
 

Checking my emails every 6 hours to make sure my PS5 preorder hasn't been cancelled. Good times...

 
 
 

Harley Quinn has been renewed for a third season. Woop.

 
 
 

Not brought a new game since Animal Crossing and my wallet is being attacked by 13 Sentinals and Star Wars Squadrens. Why you do this videogames...

 
 
 

Raji hits PS4 in October. Happy days.

 
 
 

Well managed to preorder a PS5 from Very (I'm in the UK). Never used them before so hopefully no nasty surprises...

 
 
 

It's 3:18 am. Checked to see if PS5 preorders were up. Available from 2 places. Sold out.

 
 
 

For Harry Potter, Final Fantasy and Souls fans, that was great. I'm excited for the PS5 but a more oomph with launch titles would have been nice.

 
 
 
 

Back to a simpler time of finances turning into girls, fathers in pandas and rivals into little pigs...



 
 
 

I feel like Sega seems to be continuously teasing Sonic news. Like, I can't even remember if this is still the same teasing as earlier this year or if it's for something else or if the last thing was even revealed. Gimme Mania 2 already...

 
 
 

Man the reviews of 13 Sentinels have me hyped.

 
 
 

I've moaned about what I call the "Nintendo Tax" for some time. From Street Fighter II HD being $60, the obviously purposeful limited production of Amiibos and the mini consoles. And now limited digital releases. Great work Nintendo fans.

 
 
 

In 2004 Puyo Pop Fever came out. Had it on the PS2. And that was it. That was all the Puyo Puyo the west saw for years. And now we have Puyo Puyo Tetris, Champions and Puyo Puyo Tetris 2 in the space of like a year. Madness.

 
 
 

If Ubisoft were smart, they'll do a sequel to the Sands of Time remake (essentially retconning the existing sequels).

 
 
 

I feel like I'm out of the loop, as in I didn't think they'd be his much hype for another Hyrule Warriors game :\

 
 
 

So I guess Nintendo hates Galaxy 2?

 
 
 

To say Grimvalor started as a mobile game and I'm not a fan of Dark Souls or 'souls like' games, it's pretty damn good on yeah olde Switch.

 
 
 

So somehow I find myself playing through Mario & Rabbids which I got on sale for like £6 and Grimvalor because it has a damn chunky demo and it was pretty damn good. Both games which were never on my radar.

 
 
 

Come on Gamescom day 2, give me Metal Slug news...

 
 
 

That Raji looked pretty nice.

 
 
 

Ugrh somedays antidepressants suck. Feel sick as a dog and super anxious. Going to be a long night...

 
 
 

Today I learnt that owning a kettle is not a universal thing.

 
 
 

Did I see a trailer for Megaman VR or did I dream it?

 
 
 

Forgot who it was who mentioned Kiki's Delivery Service as a nice emotional healer, but yeah, worked a treat. Go watch Ghibli movies folk, they make you feel 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
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
