A bunch of random PC games I used to play

Hey guys – I was originally going to write a review of Undertale today, but I’m really stuck on the final boss so… it can wait. Ha. Do play it for yourselves though.

Anyway, I just remembered that when I was a kid, I used to play a bunch of random PC games, and I bet most of you didn’t know they existed so I’ll talk about them a bit. Let me know if you’ve played any of these.

10 Slots to Play When You’re Feeling Depressed

Hi guys, got a post here from a friend who plays a lot of slot games – as I am not expert, I’m happy to let them talk about their favourites.

Even slot lovers can be down in the dumps and feel despondent from time to time. When this happens we all look for that one true blue friend who will be there to brighten up our day and make us feel better. With this in mind, I’ve compiled a list of 10 video slots which are so colorful and have such an uplifting tone that they are sure brighten up your day when you’re feeling down and low.

Some video game playlists you should listen to

Hey dudes. Recently I’ve been exploring 8 Tracks a bit. It’s a fun piece of software that allows you to create playlists and share them with everyone.

I just thought I’d share some of the ones I’d found that have a lot of video game stuff in them or are inspired by video games.

my monster friends from magnoliapearl on 8tracks Radio.

This one has a lot of cutest 8bit tracks from games about monsters (e.g. Pokémon, Monster Hunter, Digimon World). It’s by Magnolia Porter who draws the comic Monster Pulse that you should all read.

Let's Go to the Beach! from clawshots on 8tracks Radio.

This one is full of beach themes from various games (although it’s missing a few!) it’s really upbeat and I find it really fun.

A World Is Made from The Great Zucchini on 8tracks Radio.

This one is themed around World Building for writers/artists. It has a few relaxing video game songs in it.

Melody from aidorei on 8tracks Radio.

This one was created with the idea of “play FFXIV to this”, I really enjoy it, it has some really soothing songs.

Story People: The Sage from The Great Zucchini on 8tracks Radio.

This is for the character archetype of “The Sage”. It has a lot of peaceful music you could meditate to. Also, some music from Final Fantasy XII…

Tiggar's "PvP Mix 1" from Tiggar on 8tracks Radio.

Tiggar's Amazing 2nd Mix from Tiggar on 8tracks Radio.

A bunch of upbeat songs for playing PvP with! I really like it.

New Beginnings; Fresh Horizons from coalescence on 8tracks Radio.

A playlist for playing RPGs and Sci-Fi games.

Dreams and Winter Lights from ejbarnes89 on 8tracks Radio.

One I made for my girlfriend’s novel: The Winds of Valquhar. It has a few video game songs in there.

Cages of Convention from ejbarnes89 on 8tracks Radio.

Another one I made for a comic me and Jo wrote together. Once again, it has some video game themes…

Those without a voice from ejbarnes89 on 8tracks Radio.

One I made recently for characters that can’t speak… a lot of video game songs here.

Enjoy! Let me know if there are any you want me to include

Storm 8 Social Mobile Games Review

Hi guys, this is a bit of a random one, but I’m going to review some games that are made by a company called Social 8, especially Pet Shop Story, Bakery Story and Farm Story.

Pet Shop Story

Console: Mobile and Tablet
A social game? Yes, that’s right
Aren’t those the horrible addicting games that prey on people to give money just to play? I’ll come onto that.

Cutscenes on PS2 keep lagging? How to fix this problem

Hi guys, for ages now, I’ve had this problem with the PS2 (Note: We have a European, “Fatboy” style PS2, but the fix is pretty much the same for all of them, I gather) – any time we played a game with cutscenes (I play a lot of JRPGs so it’s pretty much every game) the cutscenes become unbearably slow to load.

Anyway, here are a few common solutions:

  • Use the “Settings” within your PS2 to go into “Diagnostics” mode. I think this supposedly tells it to “skip anything if it sticks for too long” but I’ve yet to see it work.
  • Use a disk cleaner. Might work if your PS2 is fairly new/well maintained, didn’t work for me
  • Take PS2 apart, take the disk tray apart and clean the disk reader – this worked for me

If you have another fix, please add it in the comments.

I’m going to talk about how my girlfriend Jo fixed it. She is a writer and doesn’t do a lot of DIY/Maintenance so you can do it too! It’s slightly tricky, but fear not, you just need the right tools.

Burnout Dominator Review

Hi all, another review of a PSP game that came with my PSP. Today it is Burnout Dominator and how I feel about that.

Console: PSP
Compared to other racing games: Really love it. The only racing game it can’t compare to is Mario Kart but that’s almost impossible to beat.
Best thing about this game: Being able to smash other drivers into the wall.

SSX On Tour Review

Hi guys, another random game I happen to own via owning a PSP. SSX On Tour. I’ll say this much, before played this game I didn’t even know what SSX was so…

LittleBigPlanet Review

Hi guys, today I’ll talk about LittleBigPlanet. There are 3 in the series and I played the first on on PSP.

Littlebigplanet PSP

Console: PSP
Genre? It’s a puzzle-platformer that also allows you to create your own puzzle/platforms.
Opinion: I’m a fan of the actual gameplay but don’t actually care about the customisable stuff.
