Video – My YouTube Plans For 2020
Well, it’s the New Year! So, I wanted to talk about my plans for YouTube going forward… So as you may or may not know, I used to do live streams on my YouTube channel. Then I did plot analysis videos, or rather, a couple of them anyway. Actually, I really tried lots of different...
Vlog – Small Games Room Tour & Design
When it comes to small games rooms, it can be really hard to know the best way to fit your games, consoles and other stuff into it. After all, a retro games collection (or any collection, for that matter) takes up space and in a small room, that space is obviously limited. With that in...
6 Great Last-Minute Gifts For Gamers
One thing I have to admit as a Gamer is that we can actually be really hard to buy gifts for. Initially, I always thought we Gamers were easy to shop for as you could just “buy a game” and it would be sorted. But then, when my wife asked me what type of game...

My Favourite Pieces of Video Game Music
Music in games can be absolutely amazing. If a soundtrack is done well, it can turn a mediocre game into a fantastic one or turn an awesome game into an epic one. However, there are usually one or two songs that really stand out, even in wonderful soundtracks. So, I wanted to take some time...
7 RPGs I Really Want To Play
The RPG genre of gaming is so unbelievably huge. It spans across multiple console generations, is at home both on the console, PC & portable gaming systems, and features some of the longest games you could ever play. It is truly a Behemoth of a genre. Because of that, despite the fact that it is...
Engaging An Autistic Child With A Super Mario Matching Game
One of the things that I’ve noticed with my daughter is that she gets bored of her toys extremely quickly! And by that, I don’t mean the typical “playing for 3 days and then losing interest”; she will play with a new toy for about an hour or so and then often, never touch it...
