Nintendo Pokémon Pikachu Tamagotchi/cyber pet!

      I realised the other day that Pokémon GO was not actually the first time that Nintendo or the Pokémon company had tried to peel kids off the sofa and get them to go and walk about outside. Ladies and Gentlemen, allow me to introduce you to the fickle little asshole that is …

Five of my Favourite Original Nintendo Gameboy Games!

The Nintendo Gameboy was a juggernaut back in the day and was the first console in the realms of portable gaming as we know it. With its strange green coloured screen it really didn't make for gamings clearest picture. But if you were in a well lit room or traveling when the sun wasn't blazing, …

Musings about Christmas things!

I don't do many (if any) posts that aren't reviews or looking at things. But reviews haven't been very forthcoming of late, so probably for the first time ever here is a post that isn't a look at a toy or video game! I really enjoy writing and I think I always have. Somewhere in …

Video game Retrospectives! The first three Metroid games. NES, Gameboy and SNES!

I like to play retro games as they usually aren't quite so 'heavy' as modern games. They don't demand a  huge amount of time or effort to be put into them. You  could easily pop Super Mario Bros. on for an hour and a half and finish it. A lot of games from the 8 …

Video game Retrospectives- Double Dragon!

Gone are the days when men were men and engaged in street fights garbed in monochrome red or blue outfits and fabulous go-go boots. What time it was, the days when it wasn't considered morally wrong to fight your brother to the death for the rights to  a woman that  you both wanted to bang. …
