Ranarama on the Speccy. Not as good as Quazatron but still pretty good to be fair.

Looping on the Colecovision!!
With the old Bi Plane used to play this down a friends house, we could never complete the pipe level. I remember the plane having a weird control method.

I wasn't sure of it at first but I now think this is quite a good game actually; it's not really like anything else, but it has its own feel and it's addictive. Would have been perfect for a conversion to the Commodore 16 ;)
I remember some C16 game where the downed planes could still kill you, or crash into your refuelling pads destroying then. I think its called Falcon Patrol on the C64; C16 version had a different name

Mario Strikers Charged on the Wii.

A fun but also a damn infuriating game.

Been playing a lot of Dangerous Golf on the Xbox One and smashing Darran's scores :lol:

Also very much enjoying a new horizontally scrolling shoot 'em up called Earth Atlantis that has some really unique visuals.

I've been playing Warhammer 40,000: Space marine for the last few days.

So far, it's done nothing truly exceptional, but it's a REALLY solid game. And some of the combat is very satisfying.

Got sent this for review today. The visuals are something else. The game got a bit dull long before I finished the main Quest mode. Kind of liked it overall. No bloody idea what score I'm going to give it.

After not having played one of my favourite games for some years, loaded up Mafia seeing as though it works on Windows 10 beautifully (and didn't on Win 7). Wow, such a difference from playing it last time, sandboxies have certainly come a long way. But the acting.. the script.. just genius! What an amazing story they told in that game, just incredible storytelling, even though the gameplay is not quite as amazing anymore, still though a solid game and was a fun revisit.
