Mags of the Past – Gamers 01/92

I have written some posts on old gaming magazines a few years ago, among them the first issue of “Gamers” (yeah, rather on the nose name), but mainly made those posts summaries of the magazine contents. This time around, instead of that, I want to sum up my own thoughts on the magazine issues (content,…

Should streamers pay for a license?

A Creative Director at Google Stadia (yes, THAT massively successful product), as his Twitter profile initially stated (more on this later), voiced his opinion that streamers should be paying developers and publishers for the privilege of streaming their games. Boy did that cause a reaction! Instead of cramming this into tweets, I figured why not…

Recently Finished: Evoland

This game is a pretty much perfect example of how to squander the potential of a good idea. Making an homage / a parody on the evolution of RPGs/games could have been SO GOOD. But besides some neat bits in the early parts, many of the later parts of the game make it devolve into…

Disclaimer: In this segment I’m going to post old video game reviews of mine. Some of them got taken offline for unknown reasons, others laid to rest along the websites with them.

The 70$ Game Price Discussion

So with the next generation of consoles nearing, the discussion around upping the full price of video games has flared up… again, with 2K Sports essentially leading the charge by raising the price of NBA 2K21 by $10 for PS5 and Xbox Series X with no free next-gen upgrade, in contrast to multiple announcements before…

Game Gear Micro – Thoughts

So some time ago (June 2nd, 2020) Sega announced the Game Gear Micro as part of their 60th Anniversary. Reading about it, I had mainly one question to myself… “why?” As an owner of the original system in the 90s (don’t have it anymore since the screen sadly stopped working after a few years), when…
