Well that’s Iconoclasts finished. Any fans of MegaMan Zero or Metroid (though more Fusion than Super) should check it out.

 
 

Apparently there’s 807 Pokemon now, my God I feel old...

 
 

Coupon for $5 off a $60 purchase at Play-Asia in the comments.

 
 

So Pinball Arcade is being murdered. They’re loosing the license for all the Williams and Bally tables (which is a LOT of tables) so if you want them you have until 30th June to get them. I highly recommend the excellent FunHouse.

 
 

PS4/Vita games that are cross-buy but not cross-save... boo-urns

 
 

Ah pre-E3 and the game delay announcements are upon us...

 
 

For an in-depth look at Coffee Crisis’s title screen (and more) be sure to check out my new blog!

 
 

After the disastrous last Star Fox what the series needs is to get back to it’s roots with a racing game...

 
 

A Hat in Time is done! The world and writing are definitely some of the best I’ve experience in a long time. Well, now onto Iconoclasts!

 
 

Right, forgot the title of the film so if someone could help would be great. Someone manages to sneak into some weird big party a big house using password or something but it’s like some big for show thing...

 
 

With the current state of my bank account I hope everyone at E3 just decides to take a break from making games and announce nothing or everything they announce is like 5 years away...

 
 

There’s so many games coming out... like so, so many games. I don’t have enough money or time for all of this...

 
 

I get that SNK is ‘famous’ for its 2D fighters but (according to the leaked list) there’s like 5 King of Fighters games and a bunch of other fighting games. I mean, a mini arcade machine just doesn’t seem like a good fit for them...

 
 

Hat in Time now knows the name of my pet’s childhood pet... I guess I can trust an Owl Express Owl though...

 
 

Well I was looking forward to Platinum-ing Owlboy - and then I went back to complete that cannon mini-game, yeah, that ain’t happening...

 
 

So erm... Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate has just been announced...

 
 

Anyone here used one of those Mini PS4 controllers by HORI? Was thinking of picking a couple up for games like Overcooked and Bomberman...

 
 

Well my gaming 'marathon' continues. With Owlboy completed it's time for A Hat in Time! PSA: turn off that camera assistance - it's utterly terrible...

 
 

My 4-am drunken blog should be up soon, enjoy!

 
 

I think Owlboy may be one of my games of the year. Like seriously having such a blast with it it’s ridiculous.

 
 

So apparently that GameStop Joust snow globe (yes it’s a thing) won’t ship to the U.K... balls...

 
 

Shot some monkeys, dodged loads of lava, basically being mad skilled at Owlboy, grab the secret chest, and then sneeze and send the poor lad into a pool of lava and die... well, looks like I’m doing that again...

 
 

I really wish Nintendo would just take the Netflix approach to it’s back-library. Have a subscription and you can play any NES/SNES/etc game you want...

 
 

Well Owlboy has taken me completely by surprise. Thinking this might be something special...

 
 

And that’s God of War completed. Really wish I’d lit all those lanterns before taking care of other things...

 
 

The NeoGeo mini has been leaked. Looks like a little arcade cabinet with 40 games.

 
 

So close to finishing God of War... 2 more days to go and then have a week off. Going to Platinum the crap out of it.

 
 

4 half written blogs, just not feeling any of them...

 
 

Stupid autoformatting...

 
 

Raider V is on sale over on the PS-Store for any shmups fans who may have been put off by the price...

 
 

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
