This is my first attempt at Nintendo Game Boy Color Fan Art...
I hope you like it ๐Ÿ™ƒ
I wanted to make the Game Boy Color in my art as bright as possible hence why I decided to go full on YELLOW!
I've never owned a GB Color but creating this has made me want to delve into the eBay rabbit hole of Game Boy Colors!
Wish Me Luck My Friends...

After doing a SEGA timeline and having a first stab at a Nintendo Timeline in the articles below I decided to take another look at the Nintendo Timeline and fit it into the style of the one I did for SEGA as it seems to visually display the timeline in a better way.

So here just for you is the NINTENDO HARDWARE TIMELINE 1889 to 2017...

Game Title: Vaporum
Developer: Fatbot Games
Platform Reviewed: Playstation 4

Price: $24.99 / £19.99

Not a shop in which you can buy e-cigarette products, Vaporum is instead a great Steam-punk Dungeon Crawler that feels restricted by the limitations of the genre.

Game Title: Feather
Developer: Samurai Punk
Price: £8 / $13
Platform Reviewed: Nintendo Switch
Rating: Melting

A casual game with no enemies, puzzles or challenge beyond enjoying flying around an island as a bird, feather entertains for a short while but the complete lack of any goal and the relatively small size of the island you explore from above quickly catches up with you and (although there are some cave systems to head through) are all discovered in well under an hour.

I came across the Antstream service last year when I visited the PLAY Expo in London. I didn't get an opportunity to have a go but it definitely piqued my interest. I've been keeping track of developments over the last few months and this week received an email to confirm that a Kickstarter for Antstream has just been launched.

Let me take a moment to break down Antstream and the Kickstarter for you...

The Antstream Team are looking for £50,000 by Friday May 10th 2019. The funds raised will go towards the development of the platform and also adding further games to the service.

After recently reading The Pandora Directive (and thoroughly enjoying it) as well as re-playing The Tesla Effect: A Tex Murphy Adventure, I contacted Aaron Conners to get an insight on his involvement with gaming’s favourite down-and-out detective.

Aaron was more than happy to respond and I’m thankful that he took the time out, I hope you enjoy the interview as much as I did.

‘The 7Th Guest: A Novel ‘ by Matthew J Costello & Craig Shaw Gardner
‘The Pandora Directive (A Tex Murphy Novel )’ by Aaron Conners
It dawned on me a few weeks ago that I had never read a novelisation of a video game. The closest thing I can think of was how I voraciously inhaled Andrzej Sapkowski’s ‘The Witcher’ series, which whilst having a strong connection to the video game series I initially played (the games are based on the novels), are a separate canonical entity. With this in mind, I picked up a few books that were novelisations of games I had previously enjoyed playing and the first ones I spotted at a saucy price were the books mentioned in the title of this article.

๐Ÿ•น️๐ŸŽฎ๐Ÿ”ฎ Past, Present, Future: Gaming Consoles ๐Ÿ•น️๐ŸŽฎ๐Ÿ”ฎ

Share This Post On Share to Facebook Share to Twitter Share This Post On
The gaming world is one that moves incredibly quickly. What is all the rage today will soon fall from prominence, replaced by new, exciting developments; while the present day remains important, with gaming, there always seem to be one foot that is placed firmly in the future.


The above is true of almost all aspects of gaming but is perhaps most strongly felt when it comes to consoles. As a read through eight generations of gaming history quickly makes clear, consoles have come a long way in a relatively short space of time. If you’re in your 20s or 30s now, the chances are that the consoles you used as a teenager are now considered to be almost-obsolete, and the console features you now see as basic requirements would once have been innovative and exciting. Change happens; consoles evolve, and the world of gaming keeps turning - so it’s worth taking a moment to think about where consoles might go next.

I’ll preface this review by stating that The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel isn’t a bad game, there is a lot to like about it but from a personal perspective, it just feels so safe and generic that it’s tough to recommend to anyone but serious lovers of the JRPG genre and so I felt that I couldn’t quite give it the ‘Ice Cool’ rating.

๐Ÿ˜Ž How VR Is Changing Gaming ๐Ÿ˜Ž

Share This Post On Share to Facebook Share to Twitter Share This Post On
Driving Simulators

It’s no surprise to anyone who is paying attention that the world of Virtual Reality (VR) should be affecting the world of gaming so much.

But the amount that it is doing so, and the ways in which it is doing so, might come as a surprise to some people.

The truth is that this is clearly the next wave in gaming, and we can expect more and more platforms to start taking on board increasing amounts of VR components over the next few years.

It’s always hard to predict what the world of gaming will look like in ten years’ time, but at the moment we can probably say with some degree of confidence that it will be dominated by VR to some degree.

That doesn’t mean that there won’t be other gamer types out there, but VR looks set to be the way ahead for now. Let’s look at some current examples of where VR is being used in the world of gaming already.

A little while back I was approached by @McGnarlyG to take a look at his new book entitles "The Video Games Adventures of Monte McGnarly"

I'm so glad I took up his offer as this book takes you on a personal nostalgic journey of video games discovery through the use of rhyming verse.
