One of my old favourites on MAME

Penguin Kun Wars - First played it when i chose a random game and this strange title came up. But its excellent, well worth playing

1 and a half matches of FIFA World Cup 2010 on the ps3, it was very fun I cannot wait until I play it again!
It was so fun I now want to get FIFA10 on the PS3 when I finally find it somewhere to buy!

I scored early on against Germany but then lost 2-1 and was losing the next game against Ghana 3-0 so I went to bed, as it was 1AM.
:cry: I always uncheck the add signature button, looks like this time I have forgotten!!! :D

Bought the new Crash Bandicoot yesterday on a whim, my first time playing these. It feels decent enough, though all the difficulty seems to arise from the forced perspectives rather than anything else

Currently playing Death Stranding after picking it up for 60% off during the black Friday special on Steam.

Got what I was expecting being a Kojima game. Odd setting, cinematic cutscenes (with even more odd stuff), damn fine graphics, fascinating and great gameplay, and heaps of stuff that makes no sense. Typical Kojima :). Love the social element with structures other players make appearing in your game + yours appearing in other's games. Looking forward to just wandering around. Really enjoyed that in No Man's Sky, plus I've played quite a few Kojima games in my lifetime (starting with Snatcher).

As I'm sure many would know here, one of those things that's been lost largely with more modern gaming is games shaped largely by a single individual with clear vision and distinct style. Growing up it was commonplace as games were made by 1 person, where as now their made by hundreds (if not thousands) of people. Even in the 90s it was still common with Wil Wright, Sid Meier, John Romero etc etc. Nowadays that stuff is rare. So as weird as Kojima games can be, they are something special and unique at the same time. And I absolutely love them for that reason. Plus their just great games full stop.

Picked up Bloodstained - Ritual of the Night on iOS. So far its brilliant, the guy who helped create Castlevania is the person behind it. Done the first few levels, heard the main castle is huge. So far so very good

Also happy to realise that Bubble Bobble was on iOS so happy to have that on my device for quick bursts of play here and there

^ If you haven’t already done so, check out the retro-styled Curse of the Moon spin-offs, they’re fantastic

Bloodstained in both it's 8-bit and 2.5D incarnations is excellent and most definitely worthy of playing if you like/love Metroidvania's or just 2D platformers in general.

New Soulcalibur VI DLC is out so I've gone back to that. Some nice new customisation bits to mess about with and - of course - the return of the mighty Hwang Sun-Keong. Not a big fan of his new look or voice though, so I'll have to sort that out in the customiser.
Retro is a state of mind, and cares not for your puny concepts like dates and calendars.
