SNES Classic Mini

I managed to pick up another one of these today for a friend from work and, considering how difficult they are to find online I thought I’d post how I managed to get this one for retail – or at least £10 above the RRP. Being out of stock online (you can get stock notifications…

Purchases this week

I hadn’t been planning on picking anything up this week but I saw The Surge on Base.com for less than £14 so I had to pick it up. I’m a big fan of the Dark Souls games (having played and completed Demon Souls, Dark Souls 1 to 3 and Bloodborne) so anything generally described as…

The difficult first post…

So… here it is – yet another video game journal… I’m starting this to document the games I play, how I play them and what I think of them.  If a games great I’ll say so, if it sucks ass – likewise but hopefully I won’t have too many of the latter and plenty of…
