6 Million MPH In Reverse – Big Rigs Review
So, it finally happened; I have now officially played Big Rigs: Over The Road Racing over on my Twitch channel. Not only that, but I’ve played every single race and vehicle in the game, winning each one. So, it is safe to say that I have actually completed Big Rigs: Over The Road Racing. Although,...

Guild Wars 2 – Returning To Tyria After 6 Years
It’s really strange to think that I was playing Guild Wars 2 6 years ago. That’s a really long time, especially in the case of an MMORPG. When I was playing the game before, I finished the Living World Season 1 storyline before leaving the game to play Final Fantasy XIV A Realm Reborn. But...
The Town With No Name Review
Where do I begin? No, seriously, I don’t know where to start when it comes to reviewing and analysing The Town With No Name. So, let’s take some time to set the picture of what we are getting into here. The Town With No Name is a Western-themed game released in 1992 for the Commodore...
A Content Creator’s Realisation
So, over the past month and a half, I have been looking at the content that I have created, as well as the content I didn’t manage to create. This has led me to a significant realisation. I was trying to do too much. As you may or may not know, I have been trying...

How Gaming Can Change Lives For The Better
Video games, even after all of these years, still gets negative press. Despite the fact that gaming has become one of the biggest industries in the world, there is still a stigma surrounding it. People still look down upon gaming as a waste of time, but it is so much more than that! Did you...
Why Ultimecia Is One Of My Favourite Video Game Antagonists
It is no secret that I adore Final Fantasy VIII. But did you know that Ultimecia is easily one of my favourite video game antagonists as well? The sorceress lives “in the future”, although it isn’t confirmed exactly how far in the future of the game’s world, and manipulates the game’s world through other sorceresses....
The Zoo Race Review
What even is this game? So, this weekend we played through the Zoo Race from start ot finish over on the 16-Bit Dad Twitch channel. The Zoo Race is a racing game that is very loosely based on the Noah’s Ark story from the Bible (and when I say “very loosely”, I mean it, because...
Timesplitters Review
Well, this week’s Retro Showcase stream has come and gone, so now it’s time to have a look at TimeSplitters. When it was first released as a launch game for the PlayStation 2, I really enjoyed my time playing it. In fact, TimeSplitters was the first FPS game I even completed! I had played a...
