My Time With The PS1

My Time With The PS1

My Time With The PS1 Way back in January 2001 my big brother had the legendary Playstation 1. Saving every penny he had from his pocket money to get such iconic games like Crash Bandicoot, Spyro and Rayman. I was one of those kids that would sit there and watch there older siblings play games until they went out and then it was my turn. I would play Crash Bandicoot for hours on end, learning every... »

Atari And Commodore To Hook Up With Sinclair?

Atari And Commodore To Hook Up With Sinclair? Retro gaming went total rumour-ville here at GaminGuys recently when Sinclair, master’s of the 1980’s and also Indiegogo campaigns with the Vega and Vega+, hinted that Atari are in a collaboration with them to develop (or is it re-develop?) a handheld console. Did I also mention Commodore? After an amazing 2hr 37min pod-cast, raw recording ... »

An Era In A Gamers Life

An Era In A Gamers Life

An Era In A Gamers Life My uncle was Nintendo 64 all the way. The only things I remember was playing Mario 64 and pulling out a tooth that was loose at the age of 8 and getting 1.2 euros the next morning as i was in Holland. Honestly that is all I remember. I have grown up with a step-dad most of my life, however, my best memories of gaming are with my step-dad and my brothers. My first gaming exp... »

A Story Of Tetris – From Russia With Fun

A Story Of Tetris – From Russia With Fun If you talk to someone who’s been playing video games as long as I have (or even longer), they’ll probably have a story to tell of how they used to invite friends over after school or at the weekend to sit down in front of the family television, plug in a console and play games with their brothers, sisters or other family members, all together in one ... »

Silent Hill.. The Game That Nightmares Are Made Of

In late January of 1999, Japanese developers, Konami would release a brand new survival horror game for the Sony PlayStation that would completely redefine the genre. Silent Hill was born.

Gran Turismo  –  PlayStation, Start Your Engine.

Gran Turismo – PlayStation, Start Your Engine.

By Ian Sanders   It was early 1998, the PlayStation (PS1) was the hottest console on the market & I had been left wondering why my friends were going a little too over the top for a certain racing game. The game in question? Gran Turismo. It’s not like Sony hasn’t released any good racers yet either… and I mean big titles too. I’d played plenty, like the beginnings... »

Mortal Combat in the 80’s

Mortal Combat in the 80’s

When I was young, it wasn’t just dinosaurs that roamed around our house, there was also Combat for Atari 2600. One of the most basic carts for the system (then again there were a lot on par with it), it was probably the game closest to pong, less the bat and ball.
