May completed games

Football Director DS for the DS which I suppose technically cannot be completed due to continuous play but I won the Premier League, FA Cup, League Cup and Champions League (well the versions in the game) so I consider it to be completed.

Exploring PS3 JRPG's


I would like to believe that I hold no bias towards any one videogame console manufacturer; I’ve owned a variety of consoles over the years from all the major players and my current set-up beneath the TV could be described as an example of console equality. Except…I am a little bias towards one specific set of consoles: the Playstation family. There are various reasons for this but chief among them is that I love RPG’s and Playstation consoles have always been better served than most when it comes to both the quality and quantity of role playing experiences.

Todays post

Todays post is brought to you by a guest writer who is one that I am very pleased to have persuaded to write a fantastic article.

Regular readers and bloggers may (and should) remember the Darkstalker90 blog which was sadly brought to an end a while back by the blogger. Fans of the blog will be very happy with the post that he has produced and hopefully he will back again to do more.

Enjoy.

The Checkpoint

I'm going to use tonight's post to basically advertise a gaming forum that I use.

The forum is called The Checkpoint and at the moment it's needing new members as it's caught in the cycle of low posts due to low members and low members due to low posts.

The people on there are really friendly and welcoming (I promise) so please come along and have a look around and if you like what you see please join up and post.

Retro gaming, hard games for hard men

I recently found a box of my old games at my parent’s house, they were a bit dusty, but it still felt like I’d found some long lost treasure. And maybe I did, according to E-bay, but I digress…

My first reaction was ‘oh cool, old games’. My second reaction was to blow the dust off them, because that’s what you do with cartridges. My third reaction however, was fear. Fear because it suddenly came back to me how hard these games where. Compared to the theme park ride that is modern gaming, these things where pure evil. Limited lives, little to no saving options, bosses that would destroy you in an instant if you mucked up the pattern… It felt like nostalgia mixed up with a yearning to be punished.
