2016: A (Gaming) Year in Review Part 2

cooltext222209618573806

In our last post we looked at the games that had been released in Quarter 1 2016 and were pleasantly surprised by the sheer volume of stuff (so much so that I had written far too much and had to split the article) that had been put out there.

Quarter 2 was more of the same, but with a dramatic increase in the quality of the software. In Q2 we see a few incredibly high quality games and one all-time classic (I wonder what it is!)!

So here we are, picking up where we left off in part one. Enjoy! Continue reading

My Gaming 2016 so far…

Gaming is great, hell it’s better than that – its awesome!

Videogames awesome

And yet it’s been nearly three years since the release of the PS4 and Xbox One and aside from the odd exclusive here and there at the end of 2015 it really felt like this generation was yet to begin.

I feared the worst and was hugely disappointed – especially in the wake of the delay announcement – how was I going to wait until June?

Slowly but surely I came to terms with my snub and got on with my life….

2nd Anniversary Celebrations #3

I’m gonna be honest here folks, the post that I was hoping to have done for today has fallen to the wayside! It won’t be ready until early next week, the bad news is that today will be another post highlight instead of brand new content.

The good news is that next week you get an extra piece of content to feast your eyes on and challenge your perception of gaming! (warning: it may not be that amazing!)

But I did promise you two full weeks of a post-a-day and that is what I will deliver! Continue reading
