As we enter the last half of May it means that I am quickly approaching my 34th birthday. As a way of celebrating old age and to make up for the lack of any anniversary celebrations this year (I still can’t believe I forgot about it) I thought that we could celebrate together!
I will be putting up a series of posts that revolve around the number 34 called, you guessed it, ‘34…’! I’ll be covering a load of different topics so make sure you check back here regularly.Today marks the first post in the series and it’s one in which we celebrate gaming as a whole; let’s see 34 reasons why gaming is awesome!
It’s May now (Justin Timberlake was over the moon about that) and that means that my monthly update on how I’m getting on, working through my backlog.
4 months into my experiment and I have to say that April was far kinder to me than March was and I nearly doubled my completion tally! For those who aren’t regular readers here’s the links to the previous monthly updates January, February and March. Continue reading
PSN is having yet another sale, and again it is absolutely brilliant which will be brutal on wallets all over the world!
However with over 700 offers spread over the three (four if you count PSVR) platforms; how in the hell are you supposed to find the good stuff?
It’s a good thing I pre-empted this question, because I have chosen a number of games that I think are worth your time or the money investment!
There is less than a week left to avail of these amazing offers; so get that credit card ready and prepare to weep as you purchase more games than you could ever possibly play!
For those who aren’t regular readers; this year I’m tackling my humongous backlog of games. With the simple of target of completing (at least) 52; currently I am sitting at a grand total of 3 games completed, just slightly more than one a month.
Surely March would be a better month for me and my backlog blitz? Continue reading
It happens often in real life but rarely on these pages however the article that my esteemed colleague; MrJohnSherry, published the other day had me frowning in disagreement. He gave a valid and candid critique on the state of the Sonic franchise, but at the same time I feel that he misrepresented the loveable scamps adventure and so I’m here to try to add balance and to give you guys another take on the ‘Sonic Forces’.

Like everyone who reads these pages ; I’ve been a gamer for a very long time – I remember losing entire afternoons to Pac-Man on my 2600, I lost weeks to Streets of Rage, then I lost months to Pokemon Blue, I still lose hours playing on my PS4. Gaming has been a constant in my life, games have always been there. Continue reading
It’s St Patrick’s day! And that means that all over the world there are people claiming Irish citizenship!
Well we here at Luvva towers are actually Irish so we thought it would be apt to celebrate Paddy’s Day with a short post about some actual Irish game characters! There’s not a lot of them, truth be told, but the ones that do represent us are pretty darn awesome! Here’s just a select few of our favourites.
On top of that every entry will have a little irish so you too can amaze your friends with how Irish you have become after a few Guiness’ round the pub.
To all our readers, Lá fhéile Pádraig sona duit (happy St Patrick’s day)! Continue reading
