☆ My First Three Hours With The Video Game That Changed Everything…☆ @PS_Beyond #GamersUnite

Imagine a video game that draws you in with it's storyline, tugs at your heart strings, makes you care about the characters, lets you fall in love with the game world and delivers heart thumping action whilst also scaring the shit out of you on a regular basis….

These elements combined are rare in a video game but I have discovered such a game…

It's a game that everybody has heard of and that every video game journalist on the planet has played and written about…

On this front, I'm well behind the pack as my first play session on this game was yesterday and the game was released in June 2013...

I've never been one to play the latest release and I tend to avoid following the pack when it comes to seeking out new video games experiences…

BUT in this case, it's such an amazing game that I wish I had played this wonderful game on Day 1….

☆ An Original Video Game We'd Really Love To Play! "Proven Lands" ☆ @btxsqdr #GamersUnite #GameDev #Kickstarter

We came across this cool Kickstarter for the Proven Lands Video Game a while back and have been meaning to write about it for an absolute age!

Now we've come around to put pen to paper it's only gone and been cancelled!!

But interestingly enough the project was actually cancelled with a whopping £23k of funding behind it.....

The only problem was, the goal was a whopping £299k!

The project was cancelled in order to have a rethink of the strategy employed to get this beauty off the ground......

The game is called...... PROVEN LANDS

☆ What Is Your Favourite Video Games Shop Of All Time? ☆ #GamersUnite

Retrogaming, Video Games

In the online world we live in today there is a distinct lack of high street video games stores.

Video games stores have taken a massive hit in the UK and even the behemoth that is GAME have been hit by this tough time for the high street retailer.

I for one still love to walk into a video game shop (when I can find one) and browse the rows of video games on offer, along with all the cool accessories that I want to put on my wishlist.

As I sit here now I am starting to recall my favourite video game shop ever. It was called LOGIC and was in a town called Cheshunt in Hertfordshire.

The thing I loved about LOGIC was the fact that it had every imaginable video game format covered in its vast displays of video games. They were also one of the only places to stock ATARI 800 XE/XL cassettes in our area. It was always a treat to visit LOGIC!

This got me thinking, If I was to open a Video Games Shop today what would be my ultimate Video Games Shop?

As Fallout fans wait with baited breath for some kind of a Fallout 4 announcement, it has gotten me thinking about what I would like to see included within the next fallout installment……

The Fallout world is massive and you can imagine any introduction of a new mechanic in the game must be an arduous undertaking.

But putting all that to one side, what would be on my Fallout 4 Wishlist?

After undertaking plenty of trips to the amusement arcades of the UK over the last 30 years I have come to realise that there is a missing part of the Amusement Arcade scene that I would dearly love to create....

There is no single source of information in existence that details each and every amusement arcade in the UK and which Arcade Cabinets it has in its hallowed halls.

Super Mario Kart, Games Freezer, Retrogaming

So much has been written about the Mario Kart series over the last 20+ years

This game was and still is pure gaming perfection and was released on the console that Games Freezer still considers to be the pinnacle of video gaming fun and brilliance...


A video game such as Super Mario Kart is easy to play and hard to master much like all the greatest video games down the years

There's nothing that I can write here about this game that hasn't already been said and it's such an amazing video game that I would have to say that it has to sit in the TOP 10 all time greatest games.....BUT.....

I do have a brilliant gaming memory of this Super Nintendo Masterpiece that i'd love to share with YOU......
