Console Collecting Tips

Most of my retro collection. Recently I added a new Atari 2600 ‘Woody’ to my collection. Along with two genuine Atari 2600 joysticks and two paddle controllers. Which got me to thinking about my console collection and how it has amassed to something I’m proud of. Therefore I’ve decided to put together a list of…

Nintendo Switch 2 and 1/2 years on

Essentially I wanted to write about, in my experience, the state of the Switch, what are it’s shortcomings, where it’s excelling. My switch lite should arrive in the post this Monday, however before then, I just felt it worthwhile to consider the state of the OG switch, maybe posit the question “when I bought the…

“This game hasn’t aged well”

I was playing City Connection via Nintendo Switch Online, and it’s the thought that ran through my head. I didn’t like the thought, I like enjoying games for what they are. I mean sure, compared to more modern games City Connection doesn’t hold a candle, and even for it’s time it was never a best…

Overwhelmed.

Do you ever wonder if you have too many hobbies? I managed to finish RDR2 (Red Dead Redemption 2) finally the other week, now I’m finding 1 hour roughly every second night to play Kingdom Hearts 3… and whats waiting around the corner but the Witcher 3 on my “to play” list. I guess it’s…

My Thoughts on E3 2019

Following suit with last year, I’ve decided to do another ‘My Thoughts on E3’ post. A time of the year that anyone who follows gaming knows about, and many who love gaming get excited about. It certainly doesn’t feel like a year since last E3, but it’s here again and even with EA dropping it’s…

In an exclusive interview with Mark Cerny, the lead PS4 and PS5 system architect with Wired. We have heard the first details for the upcoming PS5 (Or unnamed.. but we know it’ll end up being the PS5). Normally I don’t jump in straight away and post about exclusive news etc. because that’s not necessarily what…

My thoughts on the future of video game delivery

With all this talk about Google Stadia, I’ve been thinking about how the future of gaming seems to lie in streaming services. I suppose it makes sense. Music, Movies, TV.. streaming is taking control of many aspects of how consumers receive their entertainment these days. Now, I’m completely sold on streaming as being the future…

Latest pick-ups Feb-Mar 2019

I’ve decided to start posting the games I purchase on probably a monthly basis, just as a way to kind of showcase my gaming interests and create discussion around different games. Maybe as a way to help me decide what to play next! I buy most of my games from sales and thrift stores, often…

An honest opinion of Xbox

My interaction with the Xbox brand has been up until the past 2 years, sparse at best. One of my friends had an original Xbox back when it first came out and we played Halo together a couple times, I remember being impressed, but not necessarily blown away. I guess back during this time ie.…
