Gaming has been a hobby and passion since 1990. I started out by playing Super Mario and Mortal Kombat. Over time, I've owned consoles from Microsoft, Nintendo, Sega and Sony and currently I'm gaming on the PlayStation 4. My favourite games of all time are Dark Souls 1, Devil May Cry (reboot) Donkey Kong Country 2, GoldenEye (N64), Mortal Kombat 2 and Super Mario World. My most anticipated games of 2016 are Battlefield 1, Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, Dishonoured 2, Final Fantasy 15 and No Man's Sky.

Nintendo’s chance of revival

nintendoWhile the war is raging between Microsoft and Sony, in the corner sits Nintendo.
