A few days ago I decided to compile a list of my personal favourite video games weapons from over the years. 

These are the weapons that have stuck with me over the course of decades of gaming. 

They either have a special place in my heart or they are just damned cool.

Either way I've come up with 13 beauties, so let me know what your favourites are...

13 Years ago back in 2007, I jumped on the hype train of the Nintendo Wii and it was to be my first Nintendo console since 1991 when I owned a Super Nintendo.

After hearing a video games discussion on the Giant Bomb Beast cast all about Lightguns it got me thinking about how today’s video games generally don’t necessitate the need for these cool peripherals and how over the years I have played with a fair few awesome lightguns.

Here just for you are my PERSONAL TOP 10 Lightguns that I have had the pleasure to play with…

Me and my Wii are best buddies again…
I used to neglect my bright white, dusty friend….
I only ever really used him for when we had non gamer guests over who wanted to partake in a casual game of bowling or standing on the Wii balance board to head imaginary footballs……
Then last week this all changed……
I wrote my article on how I was going to resurrect my Wii <HERE> and since then the Wii resurrection has consumed me!
I've written before about the XBOX being a great emulation machine (once modded) but in my opinion the Wii surpasses the great XBOX.
So…..why all of a sudden is the Wii my best retro gaming emulation friend?
Well here's why…………

retrogaming, Emulation

Do you remember the halcyon days of the Nintendo Wii? (it wasn't that long ago, so I suspect you do)
 
Like a plague of locusts the Nintendo Wii seemed to consume everything in its path, smashing all before it, breaking all sorts of records for unit sales. 

Everyone seemed to own a Wii……the world went Wii crazy
 
There were websites that told you where the nearest stock of Wiis were, such was the clamor to jump on the motion controlled bandwagon
 
and then all of the sudden………………

Joystick, Retrogaming, Computer Games

Retrogaming is best enjoyed using your favourite controller.

Whether that be a Joystick, Joypad or even a Gaming Mouse.

Over the years I have found that I can only play some games properly with one particular type of controller and if it isn't that controller I turn into a cack-handed jibbering idiot!

Read on to find out more about my favourite controllers and the games that they make me great at!

★Who Will Put The Last Generation Of Consoles Out To Pasture?★ #GamersUnite

XBOX 360, RetroGaming
Games Freezer, Nintendo Wii


There was a time when a generation of consoles could be put out to pasture gracefully with a fond farewell as the new generation of consoles were ushered in.

 

As the baton was handed over to the next generation of consoles the gamers would consign their beloved video games consoles to the past and move onto the next gen.

 

The generation of consoles that have just passed the baton onto the Wii U, PS4's and XBONE's of this world are still very much ingrained into this generation of gamers due to the fact that the length of time that has passed since the Wii, X360 and PS3 were introduced.




This transition is also made harder as players of the last generation were the first to truly embrace online play.
 
With this online play each game was given longevity that could potentially outlast a games usual life span.
 
So as we enter into this new world of consoles, when should the X360, PS4 and Wii stop supporting it's players?
 
When do Nintendo, Sony and Microsoft say enough is enough and turn the lights out on the online Servers?
 
This will be the first generation of console "deaths" that are really impacted by a switching off of those servers and Nintendo have been the first to reveal their plans....

They have announced that Wii and DS online servers will close as of 20th May 2014....

This closure will remove online multiplayer functionality from a whole host of Wii & DS games.....

The services being closed down for Wii & DS will include online play,matchmaking and leaderboards....


Does this spell the beginning of the end for the other online servers from the other big players?

 

Tell Us What You Think About This Move From Nintendo

 

When Do You Think SONY and MICROSOFT will announce their Plans For Shut Downs?

☆ If Only I Had The Room ...... ☆ #Retrogaming #GamersUnite

I often think, if only we had the room........

If only we had the room to buy all the consoles and computers we have owned over the years and maybe some of the ones we didn't own!

So that got me thinking, would I be able to remember the machines I had bought?

If only I had the room and the plug sockets to buy them all again!
