A kickstarter for a new N64 game!

Friday, March 2nd, 2018

There’s a kickstarter for a new(ish) Nintendo 64 game.

I saw newish, it’s for finishing off a canceled N64 game, but it’ll still be a new release!

I hope to back this for this reason! It’d make a nice conversation piece!

I hope everyone reading this backs this also! This is going to be awesome!



Retro Diary #84 – “I’m great at this game!” *Crashes and loses wheels*

Sunday, February 4th, 2018

On Tuesday, I played some WWE 2K18 with my brother, and lost all matches… it’s getting really frustrating now!

On Thursday, I went to meet up with a friend at Geek Retreat, and we playes some SNES and N64 games.

If I recall correctly, we played some Super Mario All Stars, Street Fighter 2, Killer Instinct, Donkey Kong Country and Starwing on the SNES.


On The Nintendo 64 We played WWF No Mercy, Where we made The Coach, of all wresting personalities, Twisted Edge Snowboarding, which didn’t haave much to it and was mediocre, but was very 90s!


Finally, we played F1 Grand Prix, which was frustrating at first, but we got used to it, and had a blast. I found out that this friend of mind has a fascination with F1 and it’s video games, and seemed very knowledgeable on the subject!

He tried (Well, he didn’t try, he was just bad!) to bash the car as much as he could, and actually lost 2 wheels and front wing!


When I got home, I played some games of WWE 2k18 with my brother, and I finally got the hang of the game and how to work around it’s issues, and finally managed to beat him! …once.

On Friday, my physical copy of Undertale finally arrrived!!!


Retro Arrivals: Undertale!!!

Friday, February 2nd, 2018

Finally, after 2 months of waiting, my physical copy of Undertale has arrived!


That is all!

Retro Diary #83

Sunday, January 28th, 2018

All throughout the week, me and my brother have been playing matches in WWE 2k18, most of which I lost…

On Thursday, I met up with a friend of mine, and we played a bunch of board games, including Connect 4, Hunrgy Hungry Hippos and Jenga! We also tried to play Mouse Trap, but it was way too complicated to set up…



Retro Pick-Ups: The Sims… Life Stories?

Friday, January 26th, 2018

I was hanging out with a friend yesterday, and we decided to browse CEX, and I found this particular game that sparked my interest:


The Sims… Life Stories? What the heck is that? Well, from what I gathered from the back, it’s basically the Sims 2 with a Story mode… that actually sounds pretty awesome! So I bought it! …so yeah…

Retro Diary #82.5

Saturday, January 13th, 2018

I forgot that I even wrote this, so I’m going to give you the little I wrote here…

On Wednesday, I played some WWE 2k18 with my brother, and I lost all but one match…

On Friday, I went to the Irn-Bru carnival with some friends, and they had an Outrun 2 Arcade cabinet! I love Outrun 2! The arcade was terrible, though, the steering was bust… I accedently selected the wrong game mode, and I kept crashing into walls…


Retro Diary #82

Sunday, January 7th, 2018

On Monday, I played some matches of WWE 2K18 on the PS4 with my brother, we played 3 8-man matches, all of which he won, then we played 2 one-on-one matches, both of which I won!

On Tuesday, we played WWE 2K18 again, this time with another brother, too! We played 3 tripple threat elimination matches, all of which I was eliminated first, then we played a handicap match, me and my youngest brother versus he 1st brother, that ended in a draw, and the youngest brother left after that. Then we played 2 6-man ladder matches, both of which I also lost.

On Wednesday, I met up with a high-school friend at MEGAByted, and I played Supermn 64, and rage quit out of frustration, and then I played Bubsy 3D for the PS1, and got bored of that after 2 levels, but I saved the password for next time…

Then I played some pinball games. I’ve really been getting into pinball recently, it’s so much fun! And Trippy!

I then played the arcade game there (forget the title), with an old pound coin I had! So it was essentially a free game!

After that, we went home.

Retro Pick-Ups – Christmas 2017 edition

Monday, December 25th, 2017

Today, for Christmas, I got 3 games, and a Polaroid camera to take photos with!

2 games I expected, because I asked for them, but the 3rd, Sonic Forces, was a pleasant surprise!

I absolutely loved Sonic Generations, so seeing as this is a sequel, this troo should be a treat!

The middle game, AER, is surprisingly DRM-free, no Steam or anything required! Yas!

Dishonored 2, I only got because it was on sale at GAME. I don’t expect much from this, the disc itself supposedly only contains 5GB of data, and you need to download like 30GB to play it! Gaming is so screwed up these days…

My brother got Destiny 2 a download code for a Pac-Man game on PS4, and my other brother got WWE 2k18, also on the PS4. So not the worst Christmas ever! =)

I also got the special edition Titanfall 2 strategy guide… yay.


UPDATE: I got back from a visit to my gran’s to meet with my cousins to do our yearly Secret Santa, and my cousin got me as a Secret Santa and got me some games!


Retro Diary #81

Sunday, December 17th, 2017

Last Sunday, I finished FIFA 17’s Journey mode, now onto FIFA 18’s!

On Wednesday, I went to a meetup at the Geek Retreat, and there was a setup for a new card game called “Lightseekers”, and it was really fun! It was really simple to understand!

I was talking to this couple at the meetup, while watching someone play Prototype on PS3… I have no idea why I remember that…

We were talking about Anime, Manga and Video Games. It was good!

On Saturday, I went to a meetup with the same group as last week, but this time, it was to a bar called “Super Barios” and it was like a wet dream for me! They had authentic 90s arcades! They had some Neo Geo games, House of the Dead, Sega Rally and Ridge Racer! I played those a heck of a load of times!

I tried out a Simpons Pinball cabinet, and I was blown away! It was a lot of fun, and trippy with all the lights! I’ll definitely be playing more pinball games!
