Video Gaming History. A Personal Journey.

I love that video games have a long and rich history. From Pong to the games of today it’s been one heck of a journey that is only getting better. So I thought I would talk about some of the moments I love from the bygone years.  I apologise now I have not really played…

Do we need Video Game movies?

Uncharted 4 launched a month or two ago now and sure enough the rumours started right back up again concerning the long gestating Uncharted movie adaptation.It looks like Mark Walberg was once in talks to play the lead character of Nathan Drake, as was Chris Pratt, but neither seem to have been 100% confirmed to…

Killing Floor 2

So I played Killing Floor 1 and enjoyed it immensely. It was released in 2009. So Killing Floor 2 was a long time coming. I have to say number 2 is a lot harder. Which don’t get me wrong is brilliant. Its close quarters and the enemies are tougher and better looking (graphically speaking). It…

“Player 2 has entered the game”

Last month the Playstation Plus free games offered two titles for the PS4. First up was Tropico 5, a game I’d been interested in for a while and that quickly got downloaded; but it was the second game that intrigued me the most – Table Top Racing: World Tour. Having downloaded the game, sort of…

Where are all the tennis games?

These week marks the beginning of the 2016 Wimbledon tennis tournament. To mark the occasion I thought I would check out this years latest tennis offering in the world of video games. “What offerings?” I quickly asked. Where are all the tennis games? As far as I am aware, the sport is as popular as…

Games to Watch

These are a few of the games I am excited about playing when they are released.   Outlast 2:   I am looking forward to this coming out as the first game was brilliant. The second game veers away from the Asylum but is still set in the same world. It is based around a…

Welcome to the Asylum

So I am reminiscing about the crazy days at Mount Massive Asylum in the wait for Outlast 2… So I thought I would do a blog about the game that scared me many times. Well what to say about Outlast… scary, depraving, gruesome sounding good yet? Outlast was a horror survival game made by Red…

Hideo Kojima is back!

The man that made Metal Gear is back with a new game. Sadly not Silent Hills (insert tear here). His new game was announced at Sony’s’ E3 event, the title… ‘Death Stranding’. In the usual Kojima style the teaser trailer was obscure and confusing. To me it is going to be one to watch. The…

Summer is Finally Here!

Valve’s annual Steam summer sale is well away. With many deals on new and old games it is the perfect time to pick up a bargain. The sale started on the 23rd of June and will end on the 4th of July. Game deals last throughout the sale dates. The previous sale had daily timed…

Top 10 Sexiest Video Game Females

Lovely, beautiful, sexy polygons! You can’t beat some tantalisingly shaded pixels. Here are some of the best looking females ever programmed by games designers. (In my opinion anyway – don’t hate on me if your fav didn’t make it into my top 10) #10 Chun Li, Street Fighter She might be a bit of a…

What I want from the next Red Dead!

The rumour mill is in full flow surrounding a pending announcement from Rockstar about the hotly anticipated Read Dead Redemption sequel. This seems like a good time for me to sit down and actually think about what I want from the game. Red Dead is 100% inside my top 10 games of all time so…

Is Spielberg too old for Ready Player One?

Are The Stacks too much for this ageing wizard? Before I begin, let me say that I am a big fan of Steven Spielberg. A HUGE fan! In fact, I regard him as the best director there has ever been. His back catalogue boasts great film after great film, and the man has already cemented…
