SNes Mini: What Should Be On It?

Nintendo recently stopped production of the Nes Classic Mini (a silly decision, considering demand was still high), but now it seems that the cry for a SNes Mini *may* be answered soon enough if the rumours are true. 

The Geek Mash crew all love a bit of SNes. It contained some truly classic games, and many of us have fond memories of playing it. For me, the SNes was my first proper foray into gaming, after playing around on my parents GameBoy. The family watched my dad complete games, and me and my brother spent countless hours passing the controller back and fourth to complete Mario Kart levels, faff about on Mario Paint, and kick King K Rool's arse in Donkey Kong. 

So, if the rumours are true - what games should we have on this system? I'm sure plenty of you have your own ideas, but here's a list with my own suggestions! So, in no particular order...

Feature Friday #20 - Katy Irons Is Ulylla Designs

What got you into art?
Growing up in a creative family of artists and designers, it has always been a fascination to me! Although Secondary School was a struggle, I still managed to get into college and do an BTEC 1st Diploma in Art & Design! Plans changed through the year and I ended up studying Graphic Design for 5 years and graduated with a BA in 2015.
Ulylla Designs actually happened whilst in my Graphics studies, one day, using an old sketchbook, I started doodling 'tribal' shapes but wanted to avoid the block colours and so instead, I used a biro and created a gradient!

Casey's Top 5 Games of 2016

There has been many great games this year, but also several disappointing ones. Here's my first list of games I have loved this year. I'll be posting a list of my least favourite of 2016 soon.

5. Inside

With only seeing a tiny bit of gameplay before release,Inside was a big shock to me. An incredibly solid game, it also offered great visuals, a unique story, clever puzzles, great level design and much more.

I was hooked right from the beginning, trying to guess what was going on in this mysterious game. The last 10 minutes of the games was so different that it will stay with me for years to come. Taking many years to be made, I can see why with such clever puzzels that involved the character in uniques ways, and the world around you. It has a mysterious story that has people still speculating what happened in forums to this day.

If you like a solid platformer, puzzle game with a great story, then this is a great game to play lasting about 4 hours.

Brads Top 10s - Cold Places

So it's that time of the year again where we wish for that precious white stuff around the holidays

We are just so used to our rain and grey weather in the UK and hope for Snow, but when we do get it we just can't cope

Roads are blocked
Traffic is brought to a standstill
We run out of road salt
Our little tuchas freezes off 
and our hands feel like ice

So with that in mind I though I'd take a look at my ten favourite cold places in media

Alternatively, you could check out the one I did back in July for Top 10 Hot Places

10. Star Wars
- Planet Hoth

We start off this list with the quintessential cold place in fiction

From the sequel to the original Star Wars, Empire Strikes Back was moodier, darker and most importantly colder and we certainly felt that in the opening scenes on the planet Hoth

The Empire finally catch up to the Rebels after a chase around the Galaxy and are attacked with giant walkers called AT-AT's which stands for All Terrain Armoured Transport


Maybe if I was staying at the Rebel base but then there's still risk of either the Empire showing up and ruining your day, or being attacked by a Wampa who have been known to get into the base and maul people

Plus if you get caught out in the cold and you only have your TaunTaun at hand?

You gotta slice that thing open and sleep in it's innards

That shit be nasty yo!

Feature Friday #19 - Joshua Claxton

What got you into art?
I'm not sure I specifically remember a one-off event that sparked my interest. What I do remember is that, as a child, I loved to draw maps. It didn't matter the medium, the back of rolls of wallpaper always worked a treat. I used to draw maps of the world off by heart in reception - I still think this is the single thing I've done that my mother is proudest of...
