Is someone going to tell Konami that Delta has the value of 4, not 3?


I've had the one singular repeating Diquss notification for days...


This will mean very little to many. But long boi is dead. He was a tall duck at my local University grounds


Bank Holiday weekends... Fuck you bank holiday weekends... Bloody shattered.


You know, been a while since we've had a Double Dragon game...


Advance Wars is a lot harder than I remember...


Evil Dead Rise... I didn't like it. I mean, it was fine. But it wasn't good.


Yay weekend time! Bowling and Evil Dead today. Having lunch at my favourite pub tomorrow after visiting my favourite lil shop in York (hopefully isn't a mad queue).


Got confirmation that I'm getting the maximum amount for my bonus (June). No numbers yet but it's still a good feeling.


Might & Magic: Clash of Heroes Definitive Edition just got a surprise reveal. An utterly fantastic game. Very happy.


The UK has blocked the Microsoft Activision deal... due to cloud gaming.


Meeting went well. Top scorecard in the area (only one at 100%) for period 1 (4 weeks) so had some bragging rights which will hopefully impact my bonus. Foolishly had a milkshake late last night though so the last hour was basically me willing my body to-


Oh boy it's the big Regional Line Managers meeting tomorrow. Shoot me now or wish me luck.


Pokemon Violet is bad. Like Jesus. The textures, movement (dear lord the walking animation...), everything just looks and feels bad. How is this worse than Legends? Honestly the Let's Go games looked a 100 times better...


Those mad lads at Sega did it. They own Angry Birds.


Man, what a weekend. DnD movie, good times. Watching old horror films with beers. April Fool's day pranks. Has been a top-notch time. Has felt like a mini holiday, gutted it's back to work tomorrow.


I have a confession to make because I feel some people were genuinely upset by it. Mac & Cheese is fine. I've eaten it. A few times. It was more a "superior Brit" kinda joke. The humour in the absurdity of hating a food... I don't think landed.


Damn, that Zelda Switch is sold out in the UK already...


If you have over 8 hours and want to learn about every Bomberman game, this is the video for you.


Happy Birthday Alphadeus. May the tides of fortune soon flow in your favour.


As films about bears doing cocaine go, Cocaine Bear is definitely in the top 5.


One of the best uses of AI I've seen.


I wonder how that Dilbert comic is doing... oh.


Have been fully off the cigs for about 2 weeks now (been slowly quitting since... May?). The world stinks. Like people stink. Metal stinks. Cardboard stinks. This sense of smell business is overrated.


Microsoft has announced it has finalised a 10-year agreement to launch Call of Duty on Nintendo platforms on "the same day as Xbox, with full feature and content parity".


About Goemarone of us since 12:05 AM on 06.27.2017

I started as a massive Nintendo fan. I had a SNES before, but it was really the N64 I got on my 10th birthday that really got me into gaming. I stuck with Nintendo pretty much exclusively until the DS rolled out and I played NSMB - man I hated that game. It looked awful, sounded awful and was so easy it was hardly worth paying attention to what you were doing.

The PSP and Monster Hunter stole away hundreds of hours of life and that's when I really started to look at Sony. I had missed great games like Okami, God of War (it was cool at the time), Gradius V and Metal Gear Solid

With the promise of Metal Gear Solid and Monster Hunter on the PS3 I snagged one as soon as I was able. In the long wait (and Monster Hunter jumping to Nintendo...) I picked up Uncharted. My god, what a game! And more followed - Uncharted 2 was excellent, Catherine, Rayman Origins, The Last of Us - man the PS3 was amazing. Yes I still played the 'essential' Nintendo titles (and spent hours on my 3DS when Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate landed - and 100s more on Generations) but the PlayStation had become my main shabang for modern gaming.

I'm also a huge retro fan. Having loved the games I played as a kid, and discovering the earlier titles in franchises I loved - but it was really when I got into sprite ripping and the world of emulation that I truly discovered all there was out there on offer.

Top 10 Games:

Metal Slug X
Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate
Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island
Frogs and Flies
Doom (2016)
Mother 3
Day of the Tentacle
