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…

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…

Is the Wii U worth buying in Mid-2018?

Specifying “mid” simply because of the amount of Wii U ports to the Switch that have happened this year… Which is why I thought discussing such a topic was worth while. When Nintendo is porting almost every first party title to the Switch, and we can probably assume ones that aren’t, will be, Is the…
