163 mass shootings in the United States between 1967 and June 2019. That's 3 mass shootings on average a year.


The Tallneck is available again on the Lego site in the UK, might be worth checking the US one as well.


I'm really hoping Sony pulls out PSP's Killzone Liberation, complete with online multiplayer alongside this new Plus service. (I brought a PSP headset for that game).


I know it's hardly the worse thing in the world but one of my favourite breweries, Kelham Island (based in Sheffield), has closed and it makes me very sad I'll never drink Pale Rider again. A lot of good memories with that beer.


So... I'm guessing the upvoting lady bots are back?


Giving up smoking journey: it's not great. I also can't seem to sleep without a late night cig if I'm on an early (6:30 start) the next day. Most times vaping gets me through, but the late night smoke is tough as balls to skip.


Bank Holiday Sundays can go fuck themselves


It's an old pic but I feel like I'm missing out so...


Talking about Tatics games, R-Type Tatics I&II are coming back.


I'm getting the vibe Metal Slug Tatics ain't coming out this year...


Day off. Everyone I know is working. Time to give this Moon Knight thing a spin.


Sonic Origins on PC has Denuvo DRM, because these impossible-to-pirate Mega Drive games must be protected


The House of The Dead remake is getting a post-launch patch on the PS4 to support PS Move controllers.


Apparently seeing like a static filter over everything isn't normal...


Yo, where's my Battletoads announcement?


Okay, these upvote-bots are getting out of hand...


Hand update: it was an infected splinter.


Hmmmm... have a new mole on the palm of my hand that appears to be growing...


US people, is the term white trash racist?


Shoulder update*: So, was getting better but... staying at the parents place tonight (mum's 60th) and the guest bed... man, it's like a bag of wool (too soft) but also with boulders in it. *I know you'd not be able to sleep without an update.


No idea what I've done but man does my right shoulder hurt like hell today.


What's the hardest game you've NEVER beat?


So get yourselves to the bathroom and brush those teeth, boys and girls. Cause a whole load of trouble is heading your way!


US TMNT fans, the physical edition of the Cowabunga collection is now on Amazon.


My brain hurts.


PSA: Elden Ring speedruns are currently under an hour.


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
