2014 in review

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2014 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

A New York City subway train holds 1,200 people. This blog was viewed about 4,600 times in 2014. If it were a NYC subway train, it would take about 4 trips to carry that many people.

My favourite gaming Christmas Memory by MrLuvvaLuvva

My favourite gaming memory comes from the Christmas of 1995.

1995 the year that the world was introduced to a cowboy who befriended a spaceman, Brad Pitt found his wife’s head in a box (SPOILER!) and we found out that the thing Batman was missing was Batnipples!

It was a glorious year and as an avid SEGA gamer (growing up on a steady diet of Master System and MegaDrive games) there was only one gift I wanted from the fatman, a SEGA Saturn! It was literally the only gift I asked for that year.

Dear Santa…I NEED a Saturn…that is all!

Sega Saturn Box

This is what I wanted to see come December 25th

SEASON GREETINGS readers of this huge and overly popular blog (or so I’m told) created, edited and presented to you by the good folks of LuvvaLuvva Towers. Every so often Mr Double L (that’s his bra size) lets me loose from my basement prison to either rub my proverbial nose into his newest console or latest game release before tricking me to clean my nose with a chloroform soaked tissue, securing the ankle shackle, throwing me a year’s supply of bread and fix the faulty faucet before slamming the door shut.

He seems to get me every time with that, don’t you Double L?

Local multiplayer games you should be playing tomorrow!

cooltext1842278908

Hopefully Santa will give you everything you want and that at least one gift is a video game. Presumably everyone will have family visiting tomorrow and this means that your gaming time will be severely limited for fear of being “anti-social”!

Fear not dear reader!

There is an easy way of getting around this is by whipping out those local multiplayer titles that allow you to sociable while still partaking in that gaming goodness!

Here’s a few titles you should be playing tomorrow with granny, granddad, niece, nephew, son, daughter or wife – anyone who darkens your door should be given a controller and sat in front of the TV to play!

Santa’s greatest cameos

cooltext1842278908

Well this week is the week that a particular fat man will visit houses near you (maybe even your house, if you’ve been good this year) and deliver those delicious, delicious gifts!

Houses are not the only things that he visits, oh no, he is making a mint on his image rights for a very long time – in fact he is quickly becoming a video game trope – but we love his interactive cameos so much we have devised a list…and here it is! Enjoy!
