Well, I officially get the keys for my own place on the 25th.It has been a long road with some of the lowest lows I have ever known in my life. This might get a wee dark, so rest in comments...


 
 
 

So Toki just went and stealth released on ye olde PSN. Good marketing there lads...

 
 
 

Finished Gato Roboto... that ending huh?

 
 
 

Really tempted to buy Okami on the Switch while it's on sale regardless of owning it on everything else already...

 
 
 

So, ThinkGeek is having 50% off sale. Kinda really want that Chain Chomp lamp but they won't ship to the UK... anyone fancy helping me out?

 
 
 

Tickets for Ninja Sex Party in the UK (London and Manchester) are now on sale.

 
 
 

So people are pretty mad about Sword n Shield not having the national 'Dex...

 
 
 

People arguing if FF8 is better than 7 or if VI is the best one all while the true winner goes unnamed.


 
 
 

Another day of catching up in E3. Panzer Dragoon, very nice. Banjo, very cool. But man I was literally saying 'please don't be Contra' during THAT... Lordy Lord...

 
 
 

Been busy E3-wise since Devolver, anything I need to watch (besides Doom?). Do we have a new Ubiart game?

 
 
 

UK folk, are there any Ninja Sex Party fans here?

For Sony to not be completely forgotten during E3 they really need to announce God of War: Ragnarok

 
 
 

Sega needs to hurry up and confirm Phantasy Star is coming to Europe pretty damn soon...

 
 
 

Just finished watching the Xbox conference (was at work when it was on). Holy bejebus. PSO2 and Battletoads (a word I have typed so many times it's the first recommended word on my phone as soon as I press B). Definitely need to get an Xbox now.

 
 
 

So Fallen Order looks like if you mixed Uncharted and Metal Gear Rising but forgot to make it fun...

 
 
 

A fair bit of new Monster Hunter merch seems to have Zinogre on it...

 
 
 

R-type Final 2, make it happen people! https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/granzella/r-type-final-2-aiming-for-a-brand-new-the-best-shmup-ever?ref=thanks-copy

 
 
 

Dear Switch, Gato Roboto is out today. Why won't you let me play it?

 
 
 

Soon (the 24th) I will have the internet again. My phone has warned me I have used 80% of my mobile data allowance. These have truly been dark times. (And then, yes, I really actually finish a blog...)

 
 
 

So footage of that mobile Mario Kart has been leaked. Looks like Mario Kart 8 characters and items racing around the SNES tracks.

 
 
 

Rise of the TMNT is just bad. Like if this goes past 2 seasons I'll be a bit bummed...

 
 
 

So I'm still chipping away at Cuphead in my spare time. It's pretty tough. I mean it's not like stupidly hard but it's been a long time a game like this has made me put it down and come back to it later.

 
 
 

Cup Head. Pretty damn good times.

 
 
 

So... has qtoid gone weird again or is it just me? I'm signed in until I click to view comments and then it says I need to login... hmmm...

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
