Right, I’m thinking of doing a blog series of ‘future reviews’, as in guessing what a game will score and doing a general summary and then seeing how ‘close’ I get to actual reviews. Where the smeg do people get release date lists from now days?


Ah 10pm until 6am, what a wonderful shift...


After those MH World trophies? You’re welcome...


Alright Vita owners (all 2 of you) I’m looking for a grip thing which adds L2 and R2 buttons for an old fat Vita, can only seem to find ones for the slim. Any recommendations would be hugely appreciated!


So, I got engaged :D


So a few people seem to be getting past MHW’s end credits. My advice for the next challenge: let them fight.


Hunters log: caught a shiny beetle, got a trophy


Been putting it off for a while, but the credits of MHW have finally rolled up my screen.


So apparently I’ve just spent 2 hours on MHW catching fish, bats, insects and geckos...


Was there a blog or post for something asking for MHW get-ups or did I dream it?


Congrats Monster Hunter World, for not only making Kirin something illusive and special again, but also for making a fun fight for a change.


People on MHW. You might have missed it but during the start of the game your handler tells you to use potions when you’re low on health. This is useful when fighting Nergigante...


MHW, God of War, DBZ, Last of Us Part 2, Moss - 2018 is off to a pretty good start!


If you need some MHW help feel free to add me on PSN (same username).


Looks like a new Sega All-Star racing might be on the horison...


12 hours of solid Monster Hunting... goodbye life...


I think my game of 2017 may just be Okami HD...


Not a clue about Final Fantasy - but VR fishing is rather splendid!


As Kirby seems to have a million games lately - where's Kirby's Dream Course for the Switch? Would make perfect one joycon each multiplayer - and even better if they added a course builder...


I know Sonic bosses have never been great but, man, do they bring the near perfect Sonic Mania down :/


So the whole of Sonic Mania has been leaked online, stay away from YouTube if you're a fan of the blue blur...


With Samus returning maybe Konami will stop being a turd and bring Goemon back...


Take Hellblade's headphone recommendation seriously - makes the game fantastically eerie.


Capcom - make Disney games again. Cheers.


Now SNK is back to making games, I kinda feel like they're forgetting a certain series...


Buying Nintendo stuff is getting mighty stressful. First the NES Mini, then the SNES Mini and now the Metroid II Legacy Edition - why do you hate money and love scalpers Nintendo, why?


Bring back Gitaroo Man already...


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
Frogs and Flies
Doom (2016)
Valiant Hearts
Day of the Tentacle
