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 F-Zero GX.

Everyone who owns a Nintendo console loves the F-Zero franchise and the question fans have been asking recently is, where is the new F-Zero? This particular game on the Gamecube is great fun and this is coming from a person who isn't a massive fan of the racing genre.

#Throwback Thursday – Zombies ate my Neighbors.

After seeing so many titles for zombie games it made me think about all the old titles prior to this generation of the Zombie genre in video games. It has made me think about the change between the staggering, limping zombies to the sprinting, punching infected as were calling them now, you know, because they have feelings too. So I thought I’d go back into the past and play “Zombies ate my neighbors".

Even Microsoft is Taking on Snapchat with New App WindUp

Snapchat, the ephemeral messaging app, got its fame by offering its users the ability to send picture messages to friends that would disappear into oblivion after a certain amount of seconds. At first we didn't think it'd take off and would just be full of people sending.. private images to each other, but it seems to have been adopted as more of a private messaging app for younger teens who feel that apps like Facebook have their parents watching over their shoulders. Since the apps success, Facebook and Instagram have all tried to create their own apps, and now Microsoft is on the case too with their new WindUp app.

#Throwback Thursday | Defender of the Crown

Genial all-rounder and perennial Errol Flynn lookalike Wilfred of Ivanhoe. Metrosexual people's champ Wolfric the Wild. Loveable bumbler Cedric of Rotherwood. The walking penis-metaphor that is Geoffrey Longsword. The characters from Cinemaware's mid-eighties classic Defender of the Crown are, in many ways, a fine introduction to having children...

The Nintendo 64 Turns 20 Today

The Nintendo 64 was not the first handheld or console I ever owned. I probably, albeit unconsciously, competed for the longest GameBoy gaming session marathon on the planet. Pokémon Red and Blue dominated my younger years, but then the N64 happened.
