  1. Gameboy Pocket Saga

    I decided to spend a insignificant amount of money on a faulty Gameboy Pocket which had a screen which would not display anything. It had been modified (but I didn’t know to what extent). So I figured I could open it up, see what was wrong and easily fix it with no parts required. … Not...

    Bloodborne Demake

    Have you guys heard of this? The PS4 classic Bloodborne.. which has yet to have a sequel or any kind of meaningful update to it has been in dire need of a next-gen upgrade. However, no one has asked for a last gen downgrade! It's called Bloodborne PSX and it's being created by Lilith Walther...

    Unpacking

    This is a relatively new indie game about... unpacking. It's a fun puzzle game with a simple narrative. You are essentially a woman going through life and each time she moves home, you need to unpack her belongings and organise them into the spaces as you wish. Then, at the end the game will...

    Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy

    So this game was released a few days ago, it's a third-person story driven action-adventure / rpg that is quite similar to the Mass Effect series, it also appears to share some DNA with the most recent Tomb Raider games. It's made by Eidos Montreal who created Shadow of the Tomb Raider as well...

    Half-Life Alyx

    Anyone played this? It's available for pretty much any PC-based VR device that also has touch controllers. I played it when it first came out and thought the interactivity was brilliant. I've just set up my VR stuff again with more space to play so I gave this another try and it still holds up...

    Resident Evil 4 VR

    It was bound to happen eventually, yet another re release of Resident Evil 4, this time exclusively for Facebook's Oculus Quest 2 VR Headset. The game is exactly Resident Evil 4 however you play the game through (mainly) Leon's eyes, with the Touch controllers being your hands. I don't have a...

    Happy Birthday to our fearful leader!

    Bit of a late one from us (I've been workin all day). But Happy Birthday to @Oblivion Knight ! Hope you've had a good one. :)
  10. I cannot leave tech stuff alone.

    As a kid I always wanted to take new stuff apart to see what made it tick, and to see on the off (VERY off) chance that I could alter it to make it better. Whenever we got a new VHS player, remote control toy, computer.. whatever it is. I always wanted to tear it open... I know most people say...
  11. Gettin my 'roid on

    So what's with the Blog? I've recently decided to play through all of the games in the series (bar a few...) and a few fan projects such as the amazing AM2R and Prime2D while I'm awaiting the release of Metroid Dread. It's honestly the most fun I've had for a really long time playing all of...

    Metroid Dread

    Not sure how many people here own a Switch, and also people here that are interested in the Metroid franchise. I've been into the series since the first, but it was Metroid Fusion that really grabbed my attention fully. I was at the right age at the right time.. and I loved the darker tone. So...

    Sony's State of Play Showcase 2021

    Did anyone follow the PlayStation Showcase when it was live? I didn't catch it Live but I started looking into it shortly afterwards.. and WOW WHAT THE HELL. A heck of a lot of great teasers. So far this is what we've learned: - Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic -- the classic RPG is...

    >observer_

    Has anyone played either the original or the remaster, Observer System Redux? The game can be completed in a handful of sittings, depending on how thorough you want to be. I'd say 10 hours is about right. Also, the main character is voiced and has the appearance of Rutger Hauer (RIP), that in...

    Sean Lock

    Not been discussed here as of yet, I know there are a few UK-based people here. But a week or two ago comedian Sean Lock lost his long fight with cancer; even in his earlier days he was battling skin cancer so he had been a fighter for most of his adult life! Most remember him from doing 8 Out...

    Boosting those pre-renderered Backgrounds

    So I've been tinkering around with my photo clean-up skills, and lets be honest these tools are becoming more accessible and more powerful as time goes on. I've been messing around with some of the old pre-rendered scenes from Resident Evil 3... I wanted to keep it faithful, I didn't want to...

    🕔 On hold  Style per-platform choice?

    Unique issue for me. I’ve started using the Light style on my desktop but on mobile I want it to remain as Dark. I’m guessing something like this wouldn’t be possible ‘out of the box’ as I’m assuming that style choice is a single value and doesn’t take into account anything else. What do you...

    Fastly is down.. It’s crazy

    Fastly is one of the biggest CDNs out there and lends its services to many sites such as Reddit, CNET, GameSpot, Amazon (which includes AWS) and Twitch and as such a lot of them are down or severely hampered by it. https://status.fastly.com/ It’s kinda nuts how this kinda thing can happen. I...

    Ion Fury

    Anyone played this? It came out a couple of years ago and was a lovely surprise. It's a classic style first person shooter, and is actually a prequel to another game called Bombshell. So the weird thing about this game is that it is actually using Ken Silverman's Build engine (a.k.a. the...

    What’s the last album you BOUGHT?

    Since streaming is so prevalent these days and most people get by with a music subscription (or deal with ads).. most people don’t really buy music outright these days. But some people do! The last CD I bought was a signed copy of Super Collider by Megadeth. I think I’ve played the disc like...
