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…

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…

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…

Golf Story (Review)

A 16-bit top down RPG where instead of casting spells or shooting weapons, you play golf!.. Which isn’t quite what I was expecting. In fact. I’m not entirely sure what I was expecting beyond it being an RPG based around golf. However. For someone who has never been into golf or golf video games particularly. I…

E3 Wrap Up

To follow up on my post in anticipation of E3 I figured I’d also do a post of my thoughts after E3. I’m not seeking to summarise everything that happened, you can find that anywhere on the internet, but more seeking to feature the things that interested me and address my previous E3 anticipation post.…

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…

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…
