My gaming days are currently celebrating a little renaissance with me playing as many video games as I haven’t in years. I’m just in the middle of finishing the last episode of Life is strange and really like what they did with the story. The whole Twin Peaks vibe is a neat touch (love that show) and it’s nice to see a big audience opening up to a slower, story-driven game. Steins; Gate was a blast on the Vita and I just recently played the darker sequel Steins; Gate Zero as well. Don’t let the slow, uneventful first couple of hours fool you. Nearly quit the game because I didn’t not that much more was coming. Just received God of War and am waiting for the PlayStation Pro/Spider-Man bundle I ordered yesterday.

Treated myself to a 4k TV a few months back and with me selling my XBOX One S (which is a great console but was nearly never used) and original PS4, it’s now the perfect time to dive deep into the 4k territory. I’m rarely playing these major game releases but sometimes you have that itch for popcorn cinema and sometimes for blockbuster games.

Stumbled upon that little book with rare Japanese special editions and editions that could only be attained as a prize through Club Nintendo, certain events or winning a competition. Discovered it through a recommendation of the Bleep-Shop on twitter (an account that video-game and PC connaisseurs should follow). It’s a joy to browse through the pages with consoles and handhelds ranging from the very beginnings up to the PS3 era. I’m always listening to the neat German podcast of Rumble Pack and Max Nachtsheim, one of the guys hosting that podcast, is the proud owner of a spectacular man-cave. Btw. you should follow his Instagram account specifically set up for his passion for collecting. Just looking at all these pictures makes me want to start one of my own.

Do you have any neat game recommendations for the PS4? A hidden game that I really should play? Please share your tips in the comments, would love to hear from you.
