March was a big month for the Luvva stream; a BIG month indeed. March saw the biggest leap forward in viewership (still admittedly tiny) I’ve had since my return; it also marked my biggest concurrent viewership as well as my longest streaming time. It was very successful, and it got me Affiliate status on the 14th!! HUGE! Continue reading
Well folks,it finally happened and I cannot put into words how happy I am to report that SEGA have confirmed and announced that Shenmue 1 & 2 are coming to PS4, Xbox One And PC this year!
With this version of Backlog Blitz, I am determined now to fall below the standard that I set for myself last year – I have hit the stage where my baseline is now the number of games I completed last year. I do not (and will not) fail to better that number. The good news is that streaming has really boosted the number of games that I am playing to completion – even though I feel like I’ve done a lot already, I still have a heck of a way to go.
Welcome to backlog blitz 2018. Continue reading
Mikami is a name that holds a lot of meaning and weight to me, as a Resident Evil fan it was Shinji Mikami that brought the genre from the obscure into the mainstream – he created a game that was as terrifying as it was well designed and sublimely programmed. A genre-defining game that was one of the best games of the era. Continue reading
A blast from the past! The eagle-eyed amongst you may have noticed that I have begun streaming again on twitch and have been consistently doing so since the end of January. So, what is better than resurrecting a long dead (but still inexplicably popular) series ‘A Streamer’s Diary’ Continue reading
Here it is guys, the first update of my backlog challenge in 2018, if you remember I decided that there had be a slight rule change for my current gaming habits to contribute to the challenge and not dissuade me from playing the games I want to play. Continue reading
Sony dropped two bombshells last week; firstly, Bloodborne will be on PlayStation Plus in March and secondly that PlayStation 3 & VITA games will be dropped from the program in March 2019.
That news has split the community right down the middle and it has created several conspiracy theories as to why Sony would announce it a YEAR in advance. That’s not what games companies do – they are meant to announced something as a reaction to some outside stimulus and announce it as late as humanly possible.
The fact that they have broken the mold suggests that they have something else in the pipeline; presumably to be announced at E3 or possibly closer to March ’19.
Well, it’s happened again; I’m well behind the news – but we’ve not let it stop us before and we ain’t gonna start now!
Here’s what each service is offering for the month of March; spoiler alert (as if it is a spoiler at this stage) it’s a humdinger! Continue reading
Last week I spent an article looking at the crappy PSOne platformers that I would least likely see get remakes/remasters in the current gen; but don’t you guys think that there is plenty negativity in gaming already? Wouldn’t you prefer to see some positivity instead?
Good news that I had this article lined up and ready to go then isn’t it?
Here are the three Platform games that I would most want to see receive a current-gen remake/remaster! Continue reading
Crash Bandicoot is a game that I have no nostalgia for; I played the games as a kid, mostly on demo discs, but I never really liked it; it looked good, but it was uninspired. Besides I was busy playing Syphon Filter and Resident Evil to really give a game like Crash Bandicoot any time of day.
The only game in the series that I have any fond memories of is Warped (aside from CTR); and the love for that game is so real that it formed the only reason why I, not only, purchased the N.Sane Trilogy but preordered it!
Once the game arrived on my doormat I decided to play through all the games in order and have a bloody good time doing it…
