  1. Read a review of this in the telegraph which piqued my interest so I picked it up. If All The World And Love Were Young https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/0141990023/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_Kk3RDbJ1ZF825 its really quite sad, but was very good. Dunno if there’s much interest in poetry in here though. Synopsis; although it really doesn’t do it justice. Shortlisted for the Forward Prize for Best First Collection When Stephen Sexton was young, video games were a way to slip through the looking glass; to be in two places at once; to be two people at once. In these poems about the death of his mother, this moving, otherworldly narrative takes us through the levels of Super Mario World, whose flowered landscapes bleed into our world, and ours, strange with loss, bleed into it. His remarkable debut is a daring exploration of memory, grief and the necessity of the unreal. Poet just won the Forward Prize award too.

    Gamer or lamer?

    I do remember when gaming was mainly geeky teens in bedrooms, I being one myself. It still always surprises me when I meet a real handsome bastard who talks to me about some game they’re playing. Deep down I wonder why are you not a hideous monster like me? Like a true gamer...
  3. It’s never clicked with me at all, I even own it on the mega cd. I just can’t seem to do it.
  4. To go back to the YouTube issue. Whilst my normal human empathy gland is switched on for the plight of the lady in question, I can’t help but feel that last video was quite affected. It appeared to be put on to me. I feel that money is such a factor here on both sides that were now seeing propaganda. No doubt these transcripts will be next.
  5. This is also a good shout. Loved RA2. Arguably the only game ive played the multiplayer on.
  6. Super Mario Bros on the NES. Easy, first game I owned and it felt so special.
  7. I’m pretty sure people thought all the systems you feel are worth keeping around we’re as worthless as you think the 360 is now. I remember people selling cheap, binning or giving away segas and Nintendo’s. I myself have my original sega away when I first got a ps1, it wasn’t worth selling at the time.
  8. Maybe if you have the space and care about a monochrome monitor?
  9. Is this worth it for single player soul edge style fun? Or is it all competitive hit boxes mathematics probabilities that drain the life out of real people?
  10. Mortal Kombat 1 arcade. Forever find myself playing it from time to time.
  11. Some terrible journalism on IGN on this topic. Really shoddy copy, full of spelling and grammar errors.
