Super Mario Bros (NES) – Playlog 6

Difficulty – NA Current Playtime – 7 hours 50 mins Finished (NOT in a single play through)   OMG!!! Is it possible that I’m actually getting worse at this game?  Poor play and a lack of concentration meant a lot of resets and only a couple of attempts actually got me to 8-2. Tonight isn’t…

Gaming on a Budget – Part 1

I’ve had one of these on pre-order from Argos since the week they were announced and have been expecting a cancellation email ever since (despite the fact they took my money straight away!).  When I placed the order I read a lot of feedback about people having their orders cancelled without notice and so I’ve…

Purchases this week

I’m trying not to spend too much money as we’re in the process of moving house but I finally relented and picked this up new from Amazon for just under £18. I missed these games when they were out on PS2 and originally remastered for PS3 as I wasn’t into games so heavily at those…
