๐Ÿ“บ Was The Games Master TV Show Really As Good As I Remember It? ๐Ÿ“บ @GamesMaster

Share This Post On Share to Facebook Share to Twitter Share This Post On
The Games Master TV programme acts as a warm nostalgia blanket of 90s television whenever I think about it.

The thing I have begun to wonder though is, would this fuzzy nostalgic vision of awesomeness be ruined if I were to rewatch these 90s soaked video games tv programmes in 2019?


Was the show really as good as I remember it?

๐ŸŒณ๐Ÿš️๐ŸŒณThe 13th Doll | REVIEW | "Dare YOU Return To Stauf’s Mansion?" ๐ŸŒณ๐Ÿš️๐ŸŒณ #GameDev #IndieGame #7thGuest

Share This Post On Share to Facebook Share to Twitter Share This Post On
A fan game based on The 7th Guest - the seminal PC adventure game released in 1993 – 13th Doll is a charming but flawed love letter to the original that has been in development for effectively over a decade and still feels like it could have used a few more months to iron out the more troubling issues.
If you are a fan of the original and yearn for more of the same then this could be a pleasant return to Stauf’s world but if you have no nostalgia for The 7th Guest, this probably isn’t the best place to start.

My expectations for NARCOS: Rise Of The Cartels were low but I was hopeful that the dev team would be able to make something that NARCOS fans could enjoy. 
I’d say that they have surpassed my expectations and made a fun Turn-Based strategy game that although can become a little repetitive at times more than makes up for it in the atmosphere and lovely level design.

Gaming has changed so much in such a short space of time that many of us who game can end up spending hours on gaming because there’s so much more to be engaged with.

With long storylines and bigger maps, you might be starting to feel a little uncomfortable.

So here are some tips to make your gaming experience more comfortable.

Woven is a wonderfully creative and vibrant, knitted, open-world game is that is ‘quite the quilter’s dream’ you could say.
It consists of textile-infused scenery full of patterns galore. You play a soft, stuffed elephant to boot. Just watching the trailer, it won my attention; I was definitely intrigued at what this Dutch developer (Alterego Games) had to offer.

๐ŸŽฎ๐Ÿ•น️ The Future Of Video Games ๐ŸŽฎ๐Ÿ•น️

Share This Post On Share to Facebook Share to Twitter Share This Post On
It’s been a long time now since the likes of pong and Pacman started entertaining kids and adults alike. There are plenty of middle-aged folks out there now who will remember playing these games as a young child.

The video game industry is now what you could consider as being a mature industry. It has gone through loads since the first arcade games in the seventies started finding their way into our homes. 

When the early home entertainment systems such as the NES started appearing in the living rooms of kids across the world, people probably thought that the future was there and that things could not get better than that.

The newest entry in Suda51’s No More Heroes franchise is an odd one.
The neon-tinged, smash-cut, in-your-face and zany presentation just doesn’t match up with the gameplay which, whilst having moments of intensity, is surprisingly repetitive and ultimately a bit boring.

Most of us are familiar with and have probably played at least one in this very cutesy role-playing, farm simulation game series.
If you haven’t, you should go and do so now (You know I’m right)!
The series first hit our good, old-fashioned CRT monitors in Japan back in 1996 with the first game in the series, Harvest Moon, on the Super Nintendo (Yes, I was around then, I was a decade old!). Since then the franchise has evolved greatly and has been seen across many platforms - mostly Nintendo - but also PlayStation and IOS.
