I’ve decided to come back to this blog again, after being away for two years or so. I have exciting stuff to share with you, and a lot has happened the last two years. I’ll write some again, but not as consistently as before (I churned out three posts/week at my height). I got burned out and tried to produce content instead of focusing on having fun.
This is what happened the last two years:
- I completed the list of retro games and assessories that I wanted to buy
- I got a PS4, and more recently an Xbox One (it’s has the best controller for shooters!) but sadly not a Nintendo Switch as I physically don’t have room for it. I got to borrow an Xbox One from my brother in-law and decided to get one of my own during a magnificent sale.
- I’ve completed my new Game Room
- I’m assembling a Retropie based table-top arcade machine that will play mainly arcade games and Neo Geo, and some of the really expensive console titles that I won’t buy out of common sense
- I’ve played through all the games I’ve bought and sold/given away the crappy ones and concentrated on fun quality games instead
- I’ve been thrifting at flea markets etc. not only for video games, but movies, books and vintage equipment such as manual calculators, typewriters etc.
What you can expect:
- I will present only notable video game finds from the past two years, and new ones only if they are interesting enough
- I will present some of my Star Wars and movies/TV-series figure/plush collection.
- I’ll write about new games that I look forward to/that I am playing (I’m way more up to date with the newer games).
- More Unlikely Versus (that’s one of my own personal favourites!)
My Top Gaming moments these last two years:
- Uncharted 4 “A Thief’s End”+ the “expansion” “The Lost Legacy”: Amazing gameplay and graphics that had me taking pauses as it was messing with my head
- Star Wars Battlefront for PS4 (not the second cash-grab one, I’m boycotting that one definitely)
- The Witcher 3 for PS4: Fantastic gameplay and story
- Elder Scrolls: Skyrim for PS4: Fun multifaceted game, but it sure did show its age.
- Titanfall 2: Amazing Campaign and Multiplayer gameplay
- Magical Starsign for Nintendo DS: Fun RPG game to play on the go. Not overly immersive and not too much story and cinematics to take away from the gameplay.
- The Guardian Legend for the NES: Almost finished it bar the last boss. It’s gotten better with age!
- Super Smash Bros. for Wii U: The best Smash Bros. to date
- Super Mario 3D World: The best local multiplayer game I’ve played lately
I’ll end this first post by listing what I’m up to playing right now:
Playing now, Multiplayer: Titanfall 2 (great shooter mechanics and innovative movement gameplay with the mix of Titans, and an amazing Campaign)
Playing now, Single Player: The Witcher 3, Blood and Wine Expansion (amazing game!)
Playing now, Portable: Pokémon Alpha Sapphire (it’s better than the originals! They don’t force you to compete in Contests in the Contest Hall in Slateport, that’s the best change yet)
Smell ya later!
