Everyone’s Favorite Blue Hedgehog

Recently I played through Sonic 1 and 2 on both the Master System and Mega Drive, I also recently completed Sonic Adventure. In amongst a slew of other Sonic games I’ve played through (Some not completing yet!) in recent years and in my lifetime I felt compelled to write about Sonic from my own perspective.…

My Thoughts on E3 2018

It’s a little less than a month out from E3 so I figured I’d do a post about what I’m most excited about heading into E3.  From Sony I’m not expecting much more than what’s mentioned here. A rehash of a few upcoming titles and potentially some new games. We have learned Sony doesn’t plan…

RIP Virtual Console

This is more of a follow up to my recent post: My thoughts on Switch Virtual Console which at the time of writing I had no idea Nintendo planned to announce their paid online service in early May (yesterday). For those unaware of this, however I’m sure everyone reading this would be aware. The information about the…

Atari VCS Latest News

Not that I’m huge on making this blog about gaming news as such. I’ve been quite invested in the Atari VCS, both on this blog, and in my own general interest over the past year. Lastly in my hobbies, I’ve gotten back into the old Atari 2600 and thoroughly enjoyed playing some of these old…

What’s in a game?

What makes a game good? It’s a rather subjective question with a rather subjective answer, but I’m not going to attempt to answer it rather discuss it. The often heard phrases of ‘this games rated poorly, might as well not get it’, ‘that game used to be so good back in the day’ or maybe…

Portable.. and then docked.. in that order. I mean lets take for example Super Mario Bros 3 for the Nintendo Entertainment System. It…

The Subtle Joys of Speculation

As mentioned a few times in past posts, I enjoy speculation, as do many people in the gaming community. So I figured I’d post about my own predictions and thoughts on the current and future landscape of video gaming as it is now and as we move forward towards the impending 9th Generation of Consoles. I…

Buying a 3DS in 2018

Well aside from the fact that I’ve noticed both screens on my new ‘new Nintendo 3DS XL’ are TN not IPS. Which I’ve managed to reassure myself doesn’t matter because I literally had to remember it was a thing with the 3DS’s, investigate what the difference was and then try and see it on mine.…

Appreciating the scope of gaming

At this point, I felt it necessary to express what excites me about video gaming, amongst the people I know, I feel I’m in the minority. Where for me gaming is far more of a hobby than a verb to express the action of playing the latest FPS night after night. For the most part,…
