For a while now people have been telling me to try Sunset Riders out, and while I wasn’t ignoring them I just couldn’t be fucked paying the exorbitant prices for a copy in the UK. Fortunately I have found a Spanish retailer that will post to the UK meaning I was able to get this for £35 including postage, which is a saving of about £60. So WOOOOOOOOOOO!
Anyway, the game came highly recommended, so prepare for me to shit all over your dreams! Continue reading
I kinda liked Super Smash TV, it was bloody difficulty, but if you were in the zone, and everything just “clicked” it was bloody fun and a hell of a laugh.
So what would Acclaim do to follow that great game up? Well, them being a lazy game developer they pretty much reskinned Super Smash TV into a Faux-Schwarzenegger commando type military shooter in the vein of MERCS. Continue reading

I really didn’t like Golden Axe, and while Golden Axe II was slightly better, it still wasn’t a good game.

Oh, and I really like the Japanese title for the game, Bare Knuckle II: The Requiem of the Deadly Battle. Continue reading
After chatting to a number of people on Twitter, and seeing a “Top Genesis games” list that featured Shining Force as the top Megadrive game, I figured I would finally have a playthrough and see what it is all about.
So where does Shining Force stand in my imaginary list of top Megadrive games? Continue reading
The site has become a bit Capcom heavy, so I am going to try upping the Konami output for the month with Konami Month.
I had been working on the assumption that all Batman games were a bag of wank until the Arkham series, but after having the game suggested to me on Reddit and Twitter as a decent beat ’em up, I thought I’d don the cape, and pretend I know what is happening in Gotham. Continue reading
