It's that time of year when your mind begins to stray to Car Boot sales and the dream of bagging that ultimate car boot sale deal.

I've never had much luck with Car Boot bargains but that's probably because I'm not getting there early enough to loot those car boots in time!

This year I have vowed to get there nice and early and to go pre-armed with a nice little cheat sheet to ensure I know the rough going rate for each console I'm likely to come across.

๐Ÿ•น️ Video Game Hardware Timelines - Nintendo Timeline - 1889 to 2017 ๐Ÿ•น️ #Retrogaming #Nintendo

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

Nintendo started out in 1889 with cards and then moved into video games in 1977. The rise and rise of Nintendo from then onwards has been documented millions of times over the years with only a few bumps in the road such as the Virtual Boy in 1995 and some even point to the GameCube or the Wii U as being failures but I don't think so.

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

‘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.

I’ve always enjoyed playing a solid graphic adventure that’s driven by narrative and doesn’t rely on pop culture references or obscure puzzles to move forwards, and Rainswept is just that. By no means perfect, it does, however, take an approach that, whilst dipping into the sentimental, talks about heavy topics with a light touch.

Due to the number of games we receive for coverage in the Games Freezer, it’s sadly inevitable that some slip through the glaciers.
In the Arctic Archive feature, we re-visit titles not covered upon their initial release to see how they fare down the line.
Price: £5.19
Status: Early Access
There’s always an oddly sad shelf life to online games, especially ones that don’t sell well upon their initial release. If a game is pretty much purely online-only and the fanbase just isn’t there for whatever reason, games become obsolete sometimes weeks and even days after launch.

Share This Post On Share to Facebook Share to Twitter Share This Post On
There is an undeniable connection for a lot of people to some form of gaming, no matter how distant or seemingly inconsequential.
A moment that I found really funny (in hindsight) was a few years ago in my old flat, my girlfriend woke me up at three in the morning because the bathroom ceiling was gushing with water (pinch me) and so I pegged it upstairs to wake up my upstairs neighbour (a guy in his thirties) who immediately ran down to my flat to see the damage. We headed into my living room to grab a load of towels to stem the flow, all in a complete frenzy due to the level of water coming through.
Amidst all of this, as we were running back to the bathroom, he stopped and pointed at something on display in our living room and said, “Is that Scramble? Wow, I had that when I was a kid, haven’t seen it in years!”.
Naturally, I walked over to him and filled him in on the finer points of our gaming collection until my girlfriend walked in and said, incredulously. “Umm….can you talk about games after we’ve stopped our bathroom flooding?”
Obviously, I split up with her on the spot.

A game that aims high but unfortunately ends up feeling like a cancelled late-gen PS2 title that was bought, polished and released two generations too late.
Void Studios’ first release, Eternity: The Last Unicorn (E: TLU) came across as sweeping and majestic in not only it’s trailers but also through various blurbs and descriptions (not helped by the mention of ‘Elderly Scrolls’ in the latest trailer, curiously re-named ‘Addy Scrolls’ in-game). Of course, this isn’t a game that can compare with Bethesda’s behemoth titles, coming as it does from a small, new studio.

The Secret Experiment created one of my games of the year for 2018, the wonderfully twisted, abstract and also BAFTA-winning Beckett.

Ever since playing the game, I’ve kept an eye on the company and the man behind it, Simon Meek. Keen to see what he came up with next.

To my surprise, it wasn’t a video game at all but an experimental book entitled Marnie Wakes which consists of 32 cards to be read or ‘performed’ in any order.

I’d never come across anything like this with the exception of William S Burroughs own experimental ‘Cut and Paste’ style of literature which eventually gave us Naked Lunch, and so I was intrigued.

Parties are fun. I know it, you know it.

Rockstar-turned-agony uncle Andrew WK knows it. "When it's time to party, we will party hard," and all that.

However, as you turn into a late-thirties curmudgeon, like me, you notice that when other people are having parties and you're not, it grates a lot. 

You start asking yourself why they can't keep the bloody noise down, it's nearly eleven o'clock, and other things your eighteen-year-old self would weep at hearing.
