Well Square, repeated trailers and done in 10 minutes. Guess at least they didn't drag it out...


So, that Skyrim on Alexa is actually a real thing...


Are we done with E3 today? It's like nearly half 4 in the morning here?


And with that the Devolver Digital website crashes...


You know, kinda worried for Sony this E3...


So I've just finished the Microsoft E3 conference (work prevented watching it live). Pretty decent stuff. But like, I've waited for a new Battletoads a long time, at least show me the toads man...


Any differences (except looks) between the Xbox One and Xbox One S?


I always joked I'd buy an Xbox if Battletoads came back. Was pretty sure my money was safe...


You know, Sea of Solitude looks pretty neat.


So apparently all the footage shown on the Atari VCS so far has been faked...


When you finish work and hit the qposts for some thiccthursday goodness... What the hell have you people done?


So all those dancing Persona games are coming to the UK


So there is some sort of Tetris game coming to PSVR...


Claim Jumper on the Atari 800, now that was a fun 2-player game.


Well, better climb out of bed for work. Doing a nice 8-4 on zero sleep. Wooo


Hours until I have to go to work: 2. Hours slept: 0


Metroid (the original) by today’s standards is pretty much impossible to get into. Thankfully there’s some pretty sweet hacks out there!


So I've finally started playing Metroid: Samus is Back, it's... ok. Like it seems like a perfectly fine game and it's very Metroid-y in a way, but somehow doesn't really feel like a Metroid game.


Vampyr is out in like a few days, and there doesn't seem to be any review copies. Never a good sign...


Ah E3...


So the next Assassins Creed has been leaked via a keychain. Come on let something not be leaked before E3...


So no PixelJunk Monsters 2 review?


Ok people, super serious important question time. In Banjo Kazooie when you save a Jinjo what does it say? I’ve always believed they said ‘Thank you’ but others claim they say ‘Banjo’ or even ‘Jinjo’...


Why is no one saving anything for E3...


There’s a live Monster Hunter thing happening on YouTube

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)
Valiant Hearts
Day of the Tentacle
