[Editorial] Guess what’s next on I ❤ Old Games! – 13/01/19


Hello guys,

The new year has brought some new games and some new challenges.

Talking about my collection I managed to buy several PS2 games, mainly shmups, a genre that I found it perfectly suits my taste since I’ve first completed Burai Fighter and I’m almost there, almost 600 games. The number 599 is the digital copy of Sine Mora EX a game that was on my watchlist on the MS Store, whose price suddenly dropped by 85% and was available for just 3€. I was also looking at the physical copy that was my first choice but (even if discounted) the price was around 17-18€ for both the Xbox One and Switch version: I’ll most likely buy a second hand physical copy in a few years when the price will definitely fall. I feel incomplete if I don’t have a physical copy to look at…

As you may know I’ve also started playing Cuphead with my gf this week and after a thousand attempts we’ve managed to clear the first island and started to have a look at the second island bosses. Too bad we still haven’t beaten one so far. But, hey, after two gaming session we’re already at 25% of the game and being Cuphead damn hard and giving the fact that we’re fighting the bosses on the regular difficulty and not the simple one I really can’t complain!

P.S. stay tuned on this blog because tomorrow there will be something new that could be really interesting…
