Playstation 5 details released: My Thoughts

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…

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…

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…
