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: The Firemen.

Now there have been a lot of genres throughout the gaming industry, knights saving princesses, aliens invade earth, and the old classic "you are the only one that can stop that evil guy", to name but a few. Now when it’s comes to terms of originality for games, The Firemen, just might have been given a ribbon and a pat on the back. The Firemen? With a name like that surely you play as a couple of guys with the power of flames, right? Well reader, you’re wrong. You just play as a fire fighter, fighting fires.

#FlashbackFriday | Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots.

I've started a play through of MGS 4 recently and this is has to be my favourite PS3 game that I've ever played. I know what a lot of people think about this game because it's been said that this game an interactive movie rather than a game, well you're wrong.
Kyle873 Doom RPG #1

Get Stats, Kill Demons – Taking a Look at Kyle873’s Doom...

As I mentioned during my thoughts on the DOOM reboot's reveal at E3, I've been a huge fan of the series for most of my life, thanks in no small part to the plethora of amazing maps and modifications the community have been creating for over 20 years. New and interesting tweaks to the game that helped popularise the FPS are still coming out almost every day.

#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.

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.

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.

#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.
