The Tenuous Loop aka why this heatwave is ruining standards

There are more reviews and big pieces in progress but I don’t do well in this heat so apologies in advance… Why Mario Sunshine is the greatest Mario game for playing in this never-ending heat wave Mario sunshine is just the best isn’t it? From the opening hub to the closing stages it’s full of charming quirks and just so much water and liquid that you could easily let your mind wander and feel like a cooling breeze has floated past your dried out husk of a brain. Firing back up the Wii while connecting to the TV on component … Continue reading The Tenuous Loop aka why this heatwave is ruining standards

Games to play during the #HeatwaveUK of doom

I realise some of you think I’m exaggerating and some from other countries always scoff with, “heh you think that’s hot?” but you are all each and every one of you wrong (There are serious reasons for that but lets just say it’s too hot to bother listing those here and carry on with this classic shitposting as is ey) Currently the UK is now converting itself into a scene from Mad Max where the dust clouds rip through the plains and wherever the sunlight can touch is burnt to a cinder upon contact. What can you do to survive … Continue reading Games to play during the #HeatwaveUK of doom

Video games and the tale of the National Lost Sock Memorial Day

Everything has a day now; Butterscotch brownie day, Eat what you want day, National Sleepover Day… so it makes total sense to mourn the lost socks of yonder. It also got me thinking to video games that you lose, borrow, lend out and never see again. Haunted by the empty case or special pins from the limited edition that can never be classed as ‘near mint complete set’ again. In the spirit of abstract sense and lists of nonsense here are some game things you’ve probably lost to time and should take a moment for… in sock form. A Pokemon … Continue reading Video games and the tale of the National Lost Sock Memorial Day

Games to play on National Pet Day

Who doesn’t love pets? At one time or another I’ve had dogs, a cat, fish, hamsters and now our house has two lovely rabbits (or little buggers depending on what kind of mood they’re in). It’s another ‘national’ day that only seems to exist to promote something cheesy but hey why not go with the flow and celebrate having pets! What better way to do that then to look at some of the best pets in video games? Dogmeat – Fallout (all of them) Dogmeat is such a charming dog in all the Fallout games. If he’s not an important … Continue reading Games to play on National Pet Day

PUBG Edition (Player Unknown Battleground Goose Edition)

Who’d have thought it? HouseHouse kindly sent me an early build of Untitled Goose Game (which by the way looks amazing) and would you believe it? It came with a complete cross over game with PUBG! It turns out annoying the gardener was simply a tutorial for the main game, a ruthless 100 player arena survival game for the most badass goose. Obviously the geese can’t hold guns so to attack other goose the player must press a number of  buttons in quick succession to honk the loudest. This startles the opponent and sends them flying out of the arena. The … Continue reading PUBG Edition (Player Unknown Battleground Goose Edition)

Games to play instead of reviewing Metal Gear Survive

Disclaimer – A review for Metal Gear Survive is in the works but it’s such hard going when you previously enjoyed Metal Gear Solid titles that I thought I’d pop a few thoughts out there for you to read. If your curious why I’m taking this stance check out my Beta experience opinion. Warioware Quick thinking, fast reactions and able to analyse and react to any situation, that’s what you need in Metal Gear but it’s also the same for WarioWare. There’s a new Wario Ware game in the works! We’re all hopeful it’s better than Mario Party: The Top … Continue reading Games to play instead of reviewing Metal Gear Survive
