So the BAFTA’s were on a week or two ago, and my previously reviewed movie, The Curious Case Of Benjamin Button, missed out on some of the top prizes.
I was disappointed, I thought that movie was spectacular, and it ends up losing out to another movie, Slumdog Millionaire, which I thought at the time was an outrage (Maybe I didn’t think that strongly…) Then, I went to go watch it. And I retract my statement.

(Misses the old days)
Nintendo fanboy that I am, I actually grew up playing on the Sega Mega Drive (Or Sega Genesis for those of you who have a console named after some rock band or the first book of the Bible…) Ever since I can remember the Mega Drive has been in my house (My dad used me as an excuse to get a games console it seems…Before I could actually play the dang thing)
In the beginning we only had one game which had it’s home permanently inside the console- Sonic The Hedgehog. For a long time I sat there and watched my dad play through the game non-stop (Something he would later do with Super Mario Bros which he once took a day off work just to complete) Until one day I decided it was my turn.
On Christmas Day, 1996, while my family were in the kitchen I flipped the on switch of my Sega Mega Drive and started playing through Green Hill Zone. The game was amazing. The speed, the colours, the characters, it was just a whole new world. Then he came.
Dr. Robotnik (Fuck Eggman, it’s Robotnik) arrived with is pain in the ass pendulum ball and I repeated the patterns I learnt from watching my dad, bouncing Sonic off the top of him and moving from one side of the screen to another until he was finally defeated. I was overjoyed and instantly rushed to my dad to rave about my triumph. The gamer in GamerChris was born.
(This is where it all began.)
As the years past I expanded my Mega Drive collection from this local run electronics store which sold games on the side as they mainly dealt with televisions. Whenever my dad would drive me there to buy a new game I would press my face up against the glass where the cartridges were sold, either choosing games based on their funny sounding names (DeCapAttack) or my familiarity with certain fictional characters (Quackshot Starring Donald Duck) Then I saw the cart. I had found Sonic The Hedgehog 2. Continue reading

So, I’m not dead. But, I tell what I really am. And that is…alive. Although, I am an outpatient, I am still the loveable and forgetable person that I was back then. Now with more hair in places! The game I am going to be reviewing now is Penny Arcade: On the Rain Slick Precipice of Darkness. Continue reading
