Video Game Retrospectives! The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening DX, Gameboy Color 1998

Due to a variety of reasons (most of them boring) it has been a while since I last did a blog post. So I am going to do my best to rectify that now. I am guessing  it would have been around 1999 and I had gone over to a friends house (we had been …

Video game Retrosp’egg’tive, The Dizzy Series!

I wasn’t a very modern kid growing up. When my friends were all playing on their Super Nintendos or Sony PlayStations in the 90s, I was still playing on my Gameboy or my parents  Amstrad computer. A lot of the titles for the Amstrad and  other home computer systems of the time like the ZX …

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 …

Promotional Mars 1994 Super Mario Bros figures

  Remember when you could buy  a chocolate bar in the '90s and could get a  free Super Mario toy inside the packaging? I sure as hell don't but wish I did.       There isn't much information online about these little figures, but I think they were only available in Germany in 1994, …

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. …
