Yakuza 4 artwork

Last week, I decided to pick up Yakuza 6: The Song of Life on PlayStation 4 as an early birthday present for myself. I've been playing through Yakuza 0 for the past year and it converted me into a fan of the series – so much so that I went on to pre-ordered Yakuza Kiwami,… Continue reading My Yakuza series journey begins (or has it begun?)

Cast of Dragon Quest IV

Having only discovered Dragon Quest (DQ) around two years ago, it has quickly become one of my favourite video game franchises. In fact, I sometimes kick myself for not trying it sooner.

As much as I've tried to kerb my video game spending, the recent influx of gaming sales hasn't helped one bit.

This is, of course, apart from the books I've… Continue reading New purchases: adding to my backlog (9 July)
