I’ve been recently watching things with my eyes in regards to retro gaming collecting being ‘dead’. 
Of course, these are merely clickbait titles in relation to how, since retro gaming has exploded in the last few years with conventions,  officially launched consoles specialising in retro games (NES / SNES mini etc.), high-street stores selling retro gaming clothing and accessories etc. 
Retro gaming has become essentially more of a valid commodity as it gets absorbed into the mainstream culture.

As kids most of us grew up on a diet of classic pixel art video games and I for one am still in love with awesome pixel art.

For me there's actually more pixel art around now than ever before with people truly appreciating what good pixel art looks like as we see some amazing indie game developers producing beautiful pixel art inspired video games on the new generation of video games consoles and PCs.

The good people at NeoMam Studios have been inspired to pull together a homage to pixel art and Britain in the form of 8 of the UK’s best-loved scenes in a retro pixel art 16bit style!

☆ Review: RunGun JumpGun "Minigun mayhem that may melt your mind" ☆

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


Developer: ThirtyThree
Platform reviewed: Nintendo Switch
RunGunJumpGun is a twitch-shooter video game that was originally released on mobile devices in 2016 and has now been ported to the Nintendo Switch. 

The game avoids the usual pitfalls of mobile ports by being very, very good at what it does and what it does is kill you…a lot…but enjoyably.

☆ The Nintendo Switch End Of Year Report: A+ ☆

Share This Post On Share to Facebook Share to Twitter Share This Post On
I’ve owned a Nintendo Switch for around a month now and I have just completed Mario Odyssey to the point where I have travelled to the dark side of the moon and pummelled the tougher versions of the Broodals.

It’s at this point where I would like to call a quick timeout and take a little look back at what I’ve learned about the Switch so far and how it has changed my gaming habits.

☆ Review: Genital Jousting - PC - "A game that doesn’t make a dick of itself" ☆ #GameDev #IndieGame

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

Game: Genital Jousting
Platform: PC (Steam)
Developer: Free Lives

When I first received Genital Jousting to review, I hadn’t heard of it. 

I assumed that it was a party game in the vein of Stick Fight, Sumotori and games of that ilk. 

After watching the trailer, I could see that a heavy focus would be on the newly-implemented story mode. A story seemingly about a willy trying to ‘get his end away’, so I thought it would be hastily thrown together as a sort of jokey mini-game amuse-bouche in preparation for the inevitable online main course (not unlike COD). 

What actually happened was that I was treated to my first surprise personal delight of 2018. 

Genital Jousting delivers…in inches.

☆ Video Game shopping in Amsterdam - "Booze, drugs and (It’s only) Rock ‘n’ Roll…on the Commodore 64" ☆ #Retrogaming

Anyone who has travelled to the continent and had a brief sojourn into any retro gaming store knows that the prices over there tend to be higher than in the UK, in France this is even more apparent (although it’s still possible to grab some serious bronze).

Recently, I travelled to Amsterdam for a friend’s fortieth (panic not, for I am still fresh out of the oven at thirty-four) and I did some research before-hand and discovered that there was indeed a few game shops out there and also a couple of arcades, good! 

It would provide a break from the coffee shops/head shops/seed shops / astonishingly expensive bars.
