☆ The SNES Mini Video Games Wishlist ☆ #Retrogaming

Share This Post On Share to Facebook Share to Twitter Share This Post On
As the NES Classic production reaches an abrupt end, everyone in video games is left scratching their heads trying to work out why the heck Nintendo pulled the plug?! 

The NES Mini / Classic had all the hallmarks of a barnstorming video games console success. 

It was selling out in seconds as soon as stock came through the door and even into April it was still on a lot of gamers wish lists. 

Fuelled by the end of NES Mini production the rumours of a SNES Classic by Nintendo are reaching a fever pitch and everyone’s favourite video games discussion at this moment in time is 

“Which games will be included in the inevitable follow-up to the NES Classic?”

After hearing a video games discussion on the Giant Bomb Beast cast all about Lightguns it got me thinking about how today’s video games generally don’t necessitate the need for these cool peripherals and how over the years I have played with a fair few awesome lightguns.

Here just for you are my PERSONAL TOP 10 Lightguns that I have had the pleasure to play with…

VIVE LE ROI - PC

Vive Le Roi is a stealth puzzle video game created by Sylvain Seccia


There aren’t too many games set during the French Revolution which sets this game apart from others of its ilk, it is also a port of a mobile game and although the stripped back gameplay does show its mobile roots, lovers of stealth puzzle games shouldn’t be put off as this is a solid little title.


Can I save King Louis XVI?

Will my knowledge of French history improve?

Why did the executioner get offered the job when he clearly suffers from narcolepsy?

Let’s find out.

I missed this video games related story from 5 years ago the first time round but I just came across it today as the story of the boy (Caine) came up on a news feed I subscribe to as he is now 5 years older and has gone on to bigger things already even though he's only 14 years old.

The Alton Towers Video Games Arcade is one of my favourite places to go in the UK as it has all the fun of the thrill rides going on around you and with that in mind you can also get some video games thrills at the same time.

I went to Alton Towers this Easter and was pleasantly surprised that there were actually still a good selection of decent arcade titles in the Alton Towers Video Games arcade.

Captain Kaon - PC


The developer at Engage Pixel previously worked at Creative Assembly, which you will be familiar with if you have ever played a Total War video game (they also created the mighty Stunt Car Racer on the Amiga back in 1989) this is Engage Pixel’s first title and they’ve created a great throwback to a very specific style of game that a lot of people may have missed out on the first time around.

☆ Video Games That Caught My Eye At EGX Rezzed 2017 ☆

Share This Post On Share to Facebook Share to Twitter Share This Post On

I love EGX Rezzed, it’s such a cool chilled out video games occasion compared to the behemoth that is the all-conquering EGX in Birmingham!

It’s a great opportunity to try out some awesome new games primarily from the Indie Devs of this world but also from some of the bigger devs that are being attracted to this gamers paradise.


Pang Man was our main man at EGX Rezzed this year but I also got to spend some time at Rezzed and I was bowled over by this year's awesome selection of gaming treats.

Having spent a solid number of hours at the Video Games Expo known as EGX Rezzed, I thought it would be good to countdown the best games of the show.


Now let me caveat this with the fact that although I did manage to play a lot of games there were still quite a few titles that I didn't get a chance experience.

So these aren't necessarily the best 10 games of the show but the 10 best (or most intriguing) ones of those that I did get some hands on time with.


So let's get cracking:

☆ Do The Ultimate Video Game Collector Shelves Exist? ☆

Share This Post On Share to Facebook Share to Twitter Share This Post On

I’ve been sitting here thinking about what products would make a video game collectors life that bit easier and also what are the most common problems for a collector of video games.

The recurring theme I seem to come across is the need to store a whole library of video games and video games related magazines and books.

This got me thinking and I was sure that there must be something out there that has been purpose built to solve this video gamer problem.

☆ When Football Video Games Ruled My World! ☆

Share This Post On Share to Facebook Share to Twitter Share This Post On
When I think back to all of the video game genres that I have played over the many years that I have been a gamer there is one genre of video game that I spent the first 20 years of my gamer life playing the most. 

In fact, I would say that I obsessed over this genre to the detriment of playing any other genre of game at the time. At this point in my life, I was completely devoured by the need to find the perfect football video game (soccer).

On Thursday I took the day off work to check out the Video Games Exhibition known as EGX Rezzed. Located in Tobacco Dock near Wapping in London, it was pretty easy to get to, just a short journey on the DLR.

I was super excited to go. A day of playing new unreleased games, I mean what's not to like!

The sensible thing, of course, would have been for me to plan what I was going to see in some sort of strategic fashion. However, instead, I kind of ambled around trying out video games that caught my eye.

Before I begin the review I’d just like to say that there will be spoilers below regarding the previous episode of Bear With Me as I will assume that you have completed it before attempting this one, I mean why would you start halfway through the game? If you did, shame on you! You are missing out on a great game.
