I actually want to get better at Hyper Light Drifter

Posted by on 5th March 2018 in Review | Hyper Light Drifter,Indie Game,Pixel Art

OR I found a game that doesn't make me want to rage-quit   via GIPHY   That probably sounds odd. Most people want to get better at games because it's rewarding and so they can beat them. But I'm old. Not like in numbers, but in parenting induced fatigue. Which basically means there's a lot of shit I feel too old for but this hasn't stopped me putting time into gaming, which I enjoy a lot. It Just means I don't pull all-nighters trying to max out all my characters levels anymore and I tend to avoid games that make me rage-quit quicker. I tend to go for games with an easier pace. A colleague at work pointed me in the direction of Hyper Light Drifter a few...

Nearly 20 Years later, FLCL is getting a new series

Posted by on 27th March 2018 in News | FLCL,Anime,Manga,Fooly Cooly,Furi Kuri,Review,News,Opinion,Otaku

Almost 20 years later, The third season of FLCL 'Progressive/Alternative' has been announced to air on AdultSwim this September.   via GIPHY  FLCL was probably the one thing I obsessed over the longest. Back in the days when friends from school would burn you CDs of music found on Limewire (not me, of course), Where it was a bit of a gamble on what you were going to get once the files had finally finished downloading. In Limewires renown reputation of inaccuracy, One system of a down mp3 turned out to be a video. This turned out to be my first experience of an AMV: clips from FLCL edited to System of a Down's 'Needles'. I searched every corner of th...

Why Cowboy Bebop is just perfect

Posted by on 21st March 2018 in Opinion | Cowboy Bebop,Anime,Review,Opinion

The snag with anime these days is that it's a bit like... Well, any sort of entertainment medium; you have to wade through a lot of shit to find the good stuff. There have been so amazing shows over the past 15 years for me; Death Note, Attack on Titan and Gurren Lagann, but the golden years for me still lie around the late 80's to 90's.   via GIPHY   Anime fan or not, this show is a must watch.   In short, Cowboy Bebop is a Space-Noir series about a group of Bounty Hunters, cruising the galaxy, trying to make enough money to not starve. (SPOILER: THey starve, a lot.) Think Japanese Firefly. You may have heard its name pop up now and then, but I'm g...

Luigis Mansion has Aged Incredibly Well

Posted by on 24th October 2018 in Blogging | retro gaming,Nintendo,Gamecube,Luigis Mansion,Review

With Halloween around the corner, my son is asking me for “spooky” games we can play. Seeing as Resident Evil might be a bit soon for a five-year-old, the gem that is Luigi’s Mansion makes a return to my life once more. Not in the recent release of the 3DS version, but by digging out my dusty Gamecube copy. The game was one of the choices you got when buying a Gamecube bundle during the console’s release. Console release games don’t tend to stay with me very long (Smash Bros Melee was my ultimate motivation for acquiring a Gamecube, but you learn to be grateful as a twelve-year-old) but 16 years later, I’m truly appreciating this game for what it i...
