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.…

All about video game controllers

I’m not sure about everyone else, but I feel I’ve certainly overlooked this as a topic of conversation. Although game controllers are, in my opinion one of the most important aspects of a gaming experience, because how you interface with a video game really defines the experience you have. For example, sometimes, when I go…

An Appreciation for Playstation

To be clear, I have a background as a PC gamer, as some of you may know. My parent’s bought a PS1 back in.. sometime early – mid 2000’s, because it was dirt cheap and I think they thought that console models went up and down in the same steps as PC’s did. My dad…

The Cost of Retro Gaming (on original equipment)

I was thinking about my retro gaming collection the past week and how my collecting has unfortunately slowed down (for various reasons) … and thought I’d discuss some of the challenges I’ve had when it comes to retro gaming. Maybe there are people considering collecting for retro gaming or ones who share the same sentiments…

My Thoughts on Xbox in 2018

So I recently bought the Xbox One X. For a number of reasons. Most aren’t even related to the 6 TF of power it sports, but some definitely are.. Although I’m writing today not so much about what the pros and cons are of the One X but more about the decisions leading up to…

The Landscape of Retro Gaming

My initial topic was ‘Retro gaming vs Rom gaming’, but after writing a short draft I realized there was far more to the discussion. These days it has become so popular to play retro games that the options aren’t limited to rom’s, there are ports, remasters, virtual console has been a thing for a long…
