Yakuza 5 (PS3): COMPLETED!

I know it has been some time since I completed Yakuza 4, but I’d forgotten just how bonkers it was. Playing through Yakuza 5 reminded me, but then took it further. So much further. Warning: very minor spoilers follow, although I’ve … [Continue reading]

SNK vs. Capcom: The Match of the Millennium (NGPC): COMPLETED!

I was sure I’d never completed this before, but as I got to the three “guards” just before the Geese/Bison double fight, I realised I had played it before. See. Not only that, but I chose Ken to play as this time too. Because of … [Continue reading]

Wonder Boy in Monster Land (MS): COMPLETED!

Another game I’ve completed before, but not recently and certainly not as frequently as Mega-lo-Mania. Helpfully, I totally missed getting the bell so had to rely on mainly faulty memory to make it through the castle at the end. I’d … [Continue reading]

Mega-lo-Mania (MD): COMPLETED!

I must complete this every year, I think. There’s little need to mention much about the game really, except to say that 1) I played as Scarlet, and 2) once again I reached the final level as the only person to actually put any of my men in … [Continue reading]

Pulseman (MD): COMPLETED!

What’s this? A Mega Drive game I’ve never heard of? Surely not. Especially since it was written by Game Freak and published by Sega themselves. How come I’d never seen it before? Perhaps it’s because it was Japan-only? Well, … [Continue reading]

Fire Emblem Warriors (Switch)

It’s widely known (he says, as a nobody on the internet) that I’m a massive fan of Hyrule Warriors. Not really the musou genre generally – just Hyrule Warriors. Such a big fan of it that I’ve put over 300 hours into the game … [Continue reading]

West of Loathing (Switch): COMPLETED!

A black and white stick-man role playing game set in a warped version of the Wild West where demon cows attack and there’s goblins, skeletons and necromancy and folks make their fortune mining meat? I mean, it’s a cliche setup for a game … [Continue reading]

Gaming Update

I'm still gaming, since my last post I've completed The Division (the claptrap boys PMG game that has taken us an age to complete), Assassins Creed Origins (an excellent return to form for the ubisoft series), Telltale Batman (the telltale engine is … [Continue reading]

Hey kids! Have you got two whole hours of your life you don't want back? Or a two hour bus journey next to an old lady telling you about her piles and you need to drown her out? Well have we got a podcast for you. In this episode, deKay uses his … [Continue reading]

Rogue Aces (Switch): COMPLETED!

Well, the “Frontline Campaign” completed, at least. I’m not sure the other modes are completable? Anyway, I completed it. And good grief was it hard. It plays out as a grid of islands, each one like a miniature normal mode, only … [Continue reading]
