Gaming Tastes

…and how to satisfy them.


Just like a pick-n-mix, got to filter through the fillers!

Growing up, I was a sucker for the big experience. Games like Diablo, Neverwinter Nights, Ultima Online and World of Warcraft were the staples of my gaming habits from around 8 years old up until I was in my late teens. However, these days – although I still love the genres – I can never quite pull the trigger on these types of game purchases. But why? Continue reading

MrLuvvaLuvva’s Game Of The Year 2016

Since MrJohnSherry has picked his game of the year it is only fitting that I take the time to pick mine!

If you read my recap of the year (part 1, part 2, part 3 & part 4) then you’ll know that 2016 was actually a really good year for games and absolutely full of top rated games from beginning to end, which made picking my top 3 games really difficult. However I feel that my list truly reflects the quality of 2016 if not the diversity that it provided.

The rules are the same as they always are:

1) I must have played the game.

2) Must have been released (in its entirety) between 01/01/16-31/12/16.
3) Cannot be a straight HD remake.

So let’s do this, let’s pick the Game of the year for 2016! Continue reading

2016: A (Gaming) Year in Review Part 2


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 Christmas Games 2016


Every year I make sure that I have kept a game or two to play through my two weeks off over Christmas – every year I do the same thing, buy too many games and struggle to fit them all into my schedule then eventually get round to them over the holidays.

This year is absolutely no different and I have a few games that I am going to be playing – before I begin with my list though, it is important to add that I have asked MrsLuvva for ‘Watch_Dogs 2’ and as we speak there is a very “blu ray” shaped present under the tree; so I’m not going to be adding that to the list, because it could very well be something that’s not ‘Watch_dogs’!

No, the purpose of this post is to tell you the games I’m going to tackle of my backlog and have a bloody great Christmas of gaming!

Without further ado, here’s the games that will be taking up my Christmas holiday. Continue reading

Knowing Your Role

…no need to shut your mouth though!

Heroes never die

Recently I have started getting back into Overwatch pretty exclusively! Spent a lot of time but not in my usual role. To be fair, I took about a 2 month break (I am still not even at competitive level yet!) so when I came back, I was a bit pants at using the likes of Tracer compared to how I used to be! So before I rage quit I decided I would try a type of class I never do. Continue reading

I’m Sorry, How Much?

…nah, you’re alright!


I am a bit partial to a bit of first person shooter action – late night binges on ‘Call of Duty : Modern Warfare 2’ and have a full group for ‘Battlefield Bad Company’, I like to think I have done my best to support the genre. However, there is some major shenanigans going on right now and it’s doing my head in! 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. The manufacturers promised that this year would be the one to finally kickstart it though, and now that it is July; officially halfway through the year, there is no better time to look at my own gaming this year and decide whether or not this is true!

Here’s what I’ve bought, played and completed this year! Continue reading
