Crash HD, Spyro HD, a new Battletoads, Mega Man 11, Streets of Rage 4 — Look, SNK, this is the time for Metal Slug X HD, make it happen...


Oh man I wish I knew what AMA was... sounds exciting.


People writing personal blogs here gives me such a sense of hope. Reaching out, even just to tell your story, is always something that takes courage. I also think it helps to write about such things, not just for people's responses but just getting it out


I wonder if anyone who picks up Shenmue I&II, who hasn't played one of them before, will actually like them...


When you can't sleep and you find yourself awake at 3am watching a documenary about how horseshoe crab blood is harvested...


I'm too drunk/hung-over to watch anything with sound so, does the new Doom look good?

Well that's work done, better watch this Smash Direct to see what assist trophy has been added... ohmahgawd whaaaa!


OK so Superhot VR is just stupidly good.


As someone who utterly LOVED the original Wario Ware, but wasn't too fussed about any of the other releases, is Gold worth it? Or should I just replay the original...


The Cacodemon join the other half's Moomin and Kitty. #Plushtoid


Slaps and Beans is on the PS4, why did no one tell me this?!?!


Why is Ikaruga's default option to have continues disabled? Like come on man...


Oh man was not prepared for that emotional nostalgia hit from the first stage intro music for Ikaruga. 2001... feels like a lifetime away...


With David Hayter voicing Snake again in Smash and Bomberman, can we get a voice patch for MGSV now?


With Beyond being free last month on PS+ I can imagine a lot of people would have picked Heavy Rain up, so it's inclusion in July's free games feels a bit cheap...


My Pokemon Go friend code is 3105 0661 7845 - I pass 7 stops on my way to work and 7 on the way back so plenty of gifts to be sent!


I'm new to Steam. How long is the summer sale on for? Is Cuphead on it? Are any Cave shmup games on it?


To save me wasting my money on a crap one - phone battery pack things, who has a good recommendation?


OK, I kinda really want Let's Go Pikachu...


Is that Mech game a Switch exclusive? Looked like a cross of Vanquish and Sun & Punishment


There's still time to announce Mother 3 for the West Nintendo, there's still time...


Ridley. Nintendo wins E3.


Monster Hunter having monsters from other games. Never thought I'd see the day.


The biggest surprise from Sony's E3 was that when they said they'll be no surprises - they meant it...


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
