☆ My Most Memorable Video Game Level Types - Water, Ice, Desert & Sky ☆ #Retrogaming

Share This Post On Share to Facebook Share to Twitter Share This Post On

In all of video gaming history, there has been an unwritten rule that every video game known to man must contain a Water Level, An Ice/Snow/Winter Level, A Desert Level and A Sky Level.

I've played many games over the years and for each of these level types I have experienced a fair few variants of these levels.


Today I'd like to present to you my most memorable versions of each of these level types.

☆ My Top 10 Badly Aged Video Games ☆ #Retrogaming #GamersUnite

Share This Post On Share to Facebook Share to Twitter Share This Post On

I’m always looking back to the video games that I loved to play as a wide eyed kid who cherished every cassette tape, disk and cartridge that I ever bought.

My video games have always been up there as my most prized possessions and generally I never sell my games on until I sell the system on.

It has got me thinking though. Which of all the video games that I have owned over the years hasn’t aged too well and now looks like a steaming pile rather than the graphical beauty that I once thought it was.

Everyone has their top games of all time lists and I've talked about mine a fair few times on here. 

Then I started to think about all the systems I've owned down the years and what the best games I've ever played on those systems were.


It's a tough ask to sum up your favourite video games from a lifetime of gaming on various machines but here's how I got on....

Board Games That Will Never Grow Old
Video games have turned into a massive industry. Playing the original Nintendo in the mid-80s could not have prepared you for the onslaught of excellent titles released today. 
Just looking at joystickgaming.io, it becomes clear how expansive the industry is with so many different styles and categories.

Growing up as a kid I not only loved video games I also developed a deep love for board games.


Board games for me were associated with great times with my friends, mum, dad and sister at times of the year like Christmas and the Summer Holidays.


We still play Monopoly every Christmas to this day. It's a shame I rarely get the opportunity to play any other time of the year as I never seem to have enough time.


Truly good times and great memories were created by playing some of the coolest board games during my youth.

☆Who Was Your Favourite Video Game Publisher?☆ #GamersUnite #Retrogaming

Share This Post On Share to Facebook Share to Twitter Share This Post On




When we were young a trip to the local Computer Games Shop meant we were presented with reams and reams of cassette games for Commodore 64, Spectrum, Atari XE/XL and many other cassette based systems.


The overriding memory though were the sheer amount of different publishers that were plastered all over these various different cassette tape boxes.


When we hear one of these publisher names now we are transported back to those times when you spent hours pondering what to spend your hard earned pocket money on and then normally plumped for a game on the basis of what the box art looked like or what the written spiel on the back said.


So let us take you on a trip down Publisher Memory Lane from the heady days of Tape Cassette Video Games as we reveal our 

Top 5 Favourite Software Publishers.......

For all the button bashers out there its a case of a mistimed jab will do as long as you win.......

☆The Top 5 In Game Collectibles☆ #GamersUnite

Share This Post On Share to Facebook Share to Twitter Share This Post On

As Gamers most us love collecting. Whether it's collecting video games, consoles or magazines, we love a collection of some sort.


Most of us also love completing games to that elusive 100% mark.


So when faced with a whole bunch of collectibles in a video game, no wonder we just can't help but collect em all!


We sat down to cast our minds back over the years to think of our 5 Favourite Collectibles from all the games we've played and here those beauties are!



5. Half Life 2 - Lambda Caches



Half Life 2

In Half Life 2 it felt like every bullet counted, so when you stumbled across that graffiti Lambda scrawl on a wall somewhere you felt the relief that something good was just around the corner. Locating all the caches was a tough ask.

How Many To Collect: 45

What Happens If I Collect 'Em All? 
You unlock the Lambda Locator Achievement


4. Metal Gear Solid IV - iPod Tracks



Metal Gear Solid IV

What's cooler than being an undercover bad ass while listening to your iPod? Nothing that's what! Snake is so cool he gets to go round without making a noise whilst listening to his tuuuunes!

How Many To Collect: 34

What Happens If I Collect 'Em All? 
You unlock the Trophy "Sounds Of The Battlefield"

3. Red Dead Redemption - "Treasure Maps"



Red Dead Redemption

The Treasure Maps Red Dead hint at the location of undiscovered treasure! You have to explore the game to find certain landmarks that match the treasure map, and search the area for the buried Treasure Chest!

It's a simple idea but loads of fun as a side quest distraction, many an hour has been lost searching for buried treasure my friends!

How Many To Collect: 9

What Happens If I Collect 'Em All? 
You Get Loads Of treasure and the "Treasure Hunters Satchel"


2. Bioshock - Audio Files



Bioshock

The Audio Files that you are able to collect in Bioshock act as the main narrative device of the BioShock series. 

They are audio diaries and monologues that were recorded by certain citizens of Rapture. 

This clever way of allowing you to discover the plot really adds to the atmosphere of the game and adds layers to the city of Rapture by giving you a sneek peek of what the citizens were thinking and feeling at the time the madness took over the city!

A really simple idea that is brilliantly implemented to full effect.


How Many To Collect: 122

What Happens If I Collect 'Em All?  
Historian Trophy/Achievement


1. Fallout 3 - "Bobbleheads"


Fallout 3

Fallout 3 is massive and there are thousands of things to collect and hoard, but most of them are useless and pretty drab.

When you search the wasteland for hours only to find tin cans and bits of metal, the sight of a little Bobble Headed Vault Boy just cheekily staring at you fills a Wasteland wanderer with joy! 

This little guy brings happiness to a player as not only do you get to store each one on your bobblehead display stand in your home, but you also get the associated SPECIAL stat increase of 1 point or the Skill increase of 10 points applied to your character.

All round these are coolest most unique collectibles we've come across in all of our video games playing times. Check out their little faces......you gotta catch em all! 

How Many To Collect: 20

What Happens If I Collect 'Em All? 
The first achievement or trophy is named "Yes, I Play with Dolls" and is awarded for collecting 10 of them, players then earn the second achievement/trophy called "Vault-Tec C.E.O." for finding all 20 of them.
