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…

I still love the Sega Master System

Above is a picture of one of my first gaming memories. The Sega Master System. The one pictured is the very same I played on back in the 90’s, obviously a little banged up but still works like a dream. Above are the Master System games that are currently in my collection. Most are, once…

Slightly new direction

The posting on my site has kinda dropped off lately. For a number of reasons, but I’ve decided to get it going again in a slightly new direction. For a number of reasons that I won’t get into, I’ve taken a break from Instagram and deleted the app from my phone. I’ll leave my Instagram…

Marvel’s Spider-Man (PS4) (REVIEW)

Anyone who follows my blog probably knows I don’t often do reviews. The reason being, I feel like everyone does reviews and probably does a better job either because they do them professionally or because they have played every or most games in the franchise and played them to 100% completion or at least near…

Gaming on a budget

So it’s been a while since my last post, and there are a number of reasons why I’ve slowed down (and hope to speed back up a bit moving forward). One of which is the fact I recently changed jobs, to a job where I now earn less, (because it’s less hours and eventually may…

Nintendo Online – Part Two

TL;DR After 12 days of using the service, I will conclude that in it’s present state.. it’s about worth the amount you pay… For me, I was most excited about the classic games, and I feel they’ve been implemented really well. For anyone who wants a refresh this link sums up what’s currently available, as well…

Nintendo Online – Part One

Ever since the Nintendo Switch came out March last year, the one thing I’ve been wanting to know more and more about is Nintendo Online. Courtesy of the WayBack machine, here is a snap of the landing page for the service as it was on January 13, 2017!.. Lets all take a moment to truly appreciate…

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…
