Escap3: Demon’s Souls and Dark Souls

This short series of features is centered on the use of gaming as a form of escapism. Some may argue that all games can be used in this way, but none so much as a few titles that really suck you into their worlds, lore and style of gaming. I'll be covering a few of the titles that have been amazingly helpful in the face of crises over the span of my life and hopefully, give some insight into why they're so therapeutic in the first place.

#ThrowbackThursday. The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask.

The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask has a Marmite presence in the gaming world because people either love it or hate it. In my opinion it’s one of my favourite games in the Zelda series because of its dark subject matter, setting, and unlikely villain.

#ThrowbackThursday: Metal Gear Solid Twin Snakes.

In 1998 gaming outlook on gaming changed forever, they weren't just looked upon as just a time burner, they were perceived as art with cinematic values, much like a movie. Metal Gear Solid changed how games were made buy telling stories with a serious cinematic edge with legit credits and voice actors although at the time Kojima made up the names of the actors in the original version of the game because he did not know if it was supportted by the screen actor's guild.

A Power Rangers Fan Theory

If you spend too much time on the internet like me you usually come across fan wikis and my favourite of all is the Power Ranger one. I love the richness and in depth information fans of a product put into these articles, the haven of trivia and cool bits of information they tend to hold.

#ThrowbackThursday: Soulcalibur II (Gamecube)

Here is a small gem that is very close to my heart when I was child, still in primary school. I remember when my brother got his Gamecube and we all used to gather around it and do small tournaments with Soulcalibur II, Mario Kart Double Dash and Super Smash Bros. This console may have not sold as well as it could have, but it does not stop it from being a fantastic and interesting system with some really beautiful games.
Theme Park

#ThrowbackThursday | Theme Park

One of my all time favourite games as a kid was Theme Park on PlayStation One. It was my first introduction to the 'Tycoon' style of games, but added humour and a more light hearted take on the genre.
