There we have it then, quite a variety of games

far as coverage goes, I’m not 100% sure just yet but I will aim to cover Mario Bros
on Switch and potentially Kingdom Hearts although I still to this day have absolutely
know idea what the game is about, I know that I really should have at least
some idea given its popularity so maybe 2019 is the year I should jump in?! let
