After my Uncharted Journey had finished I haven't wasted much time in taking on my next video gaming challenge on the PS4. 

That challenge involves sitting in a tower in a national park looking out for fires.

It’s maybe seen as a bit of a video gaming cliché to declare your admiration and love for the Super Mario Bros series and maybe yes it is?

But I have been with the Bros from the start and have seen them evolve over the years with the video games industry and have earned the right to declare my Mario Love.

So the momentum continues with my Uncharted journey as I have recently completed Uncharted 2 and moved immediately onto Uncharted 3: Drakes Deception.

I have to say that the pace and the enjoyment has never let up from the moment I started playing the PS4 Drake Collection.

☆ The Count Lucanor - "A Boy And His Rabbid Goats!" ☆ #GameDev #GamersUnite #PixelArt

Last night a video game stole my heart and then messed with my brain!

The Count Lucanor is one surprise that I wasn’t expecting when I loaded it up from Steam.

When I took a peek at the screen shots I was thinking it looks like a nice pixel art style Action RPG.

When it started up I was hooked from moment one.

For me Ravenholm in Half Life 2 is one of the pinnacles in video gaming from the last 30 years.

The level typifies the classy way that Half Life 2 was constructed and implemented.

There was tension, there was terror and there was the Gravity Gun and some handy buzzsaw blades.

I’ve had a few days to play Velocity Stream and I can safely say that this game is something special.

The initial view leads you to think of Wipeout and F-Zero which are those awesome futuristic racers that all other futuristic racers tend to be compared to.
