The hype surrounding Insomniac’s Spider-Man game was massive. I saw posts about how New York’s subway had been transformed into a Spider-Man theme park, billboards across the country had gone up, even bus stops had Peter Parker’s masked face adorning them. I told myself “I don’t need to buy this at release, with all this press they must be expecting to need a sales push, … Continue reading Marvel’s Spider-Man – review
When the Shenmue HD Remasters were announced around 50 years ago, I remember doing a lot of dancing and reminiscing about the glory days of the Dreamcast, VMU and forklift trucks. I may have even thought the phrase ‘games were better back in my day’. With no solid release date, I fired up Shenmue 2 on my 1999 original Sega Dreamcast and began a long … Continue reading I ❤ Shenmue, yet I don't remember any of it.
The last post I published on WordPress was on 24th September, 2017. Exactly 1 week and 1 day before my girlfriend went into labour.

That means that you all looked … Continue reading Shadow Tactics: T’Blades of T’Shogun
Hello old friends, all 12 of you that read this. First of all, yet another long hiatus. This time due to nothing in particular. I could say it’s due to getting ready to be a dad, but my girlfriend is covering preparation for both of us. It could be because I am working hard with year end coming up, but… no. I am fairly relaxed … Continue reading Ghost Recon Wildlands & Knuckles
It’s been a long, long time since I wrote on this blog. I have 3 posts that I half wrote, then gave up on as something shiny appeared in the corner of my eye. That or I was being shouted at for not cleaning quickly or well enough. First things first, I am to be a father. In the grand scheme of things, becoming a … Continue reading “Surging” life changes and charity begging
