☆ 2016 -The PS4 Diaries Part 12 "One Game That Was Never On My Radar" ☆ #PS4 #GamersUnite

After finishing up with Hotline Miami on my beloved PS4 I was eager to carry on my run of video gaming goodness by picking up my next title to fill the void left by the mayhem of Hotline and it's brutality.

My usual route for video game decision making is to refer to my list of games on my iPhone that I want to buy. On that list I try to avoid the obvious titles such as Fallout 4 and go for the indie type titles that I can pick up and experience something slightly different with (my last two purchases have been Firewatch and Hotline Miami).

Hotline Miami has kept me entertained for the last few weeks and now I have completed this brilliant game I am left wondering how I went from bumbling bludgeoner to hard to kill hitman in a game that tested me every step of the way. 

This video game was tough to begin with and then proceeded to get tougher!

One of my favourite past times on a Sunday night is to sit down in front of the TV and get my laptop out.

Then I head over to Kickstarter, type in Video Games and get myself knee deep in the latest video games Kickstarters so I can share with you the cream of the Kickstarter crop.

Are You Ready?

The first time I played any Metal Gear game was the PS1 Metal Gear Solid.

It was a video game that was to change my view on what a video game could be and how a video game could tell a story and build a film like tension and atmosphere.

☆ Welcome To The Wild World Of "Nitroplus Blasterz: Heroines Infinite Duel" ☆ #GamersUnite #PS4 #PSN

Have you ever played a video that is so nuts from minute one that you don't really know what's going on but no matter what the hell is going on on screen you actually really like it!?

I can safely say that Nitroplus Blasterz: Heroines Infinite Duel (awesome title!) is one such game that I havn't got a clue what anyone is on about but when it gets down n dirty it's actually an amazing fighting game with so much fun to be had with the mechanics.
