That time has come again, time to raid the (growing in length) backlog and review a game that I should have when this blog was but a baby. The game today has just seen its sequel release to universally middling reviews – but this is considered a bona fide classic.
‘Hotline Miami’ launched with little fanfare but quickly made its fans with its tight top-down gameplay and 1980s inspired soundtrack; but what did I think of it?
Is it worth digging out? Or should it be left in the 80s alongside bouffant hair and massive shoulder pads?

Playing games is just too mainstream these days. I mean, everyone does it, the only thing left for us proper gamers to do is to watch others play the games we’d like to play.

At 8:30 a.m, April 22nd, 2014 the news that David Moyes has been sacked by Manchester United broke. Universal tears followed; by fans of every other club in the Premier League. MrLuvvaLuvva thought it only fitting to take a look at Mr Moyes’ C.V. in videogames.
You’d be shocked at things he’s had an arm in, to make matters worse we have photographic evidence of his deeds.
