Hello dear readers and welcome to a new Top 5 post here on Shoot the Rookie. Although I used to do lots of Top 5’s I haven’t done one recently so thought it would be a cool thing to resurrect.

Hello dear readers and welcome back to Shoot the Rookie! As you may know if you follow me on Twitter (that’s @pix1001 if you don’t!) I have recently completed Atlus’ heart-changing JRPG, Persona 5. You may also know that I am rather fond of it. As such I’m planning a couple of articles about the game but I wanted to kick off with a simple collection of facts and figures detailing what I achieved in the game, so please join me for this number crunching run through my time in Persona 5!

The aim of this is to get us to embrace our gaming backlogs rather than seeing them as a negative. From my point of view this isn’t difficult as I have never viewed the backlog as a chore, but rather a reminder that the future still has many wonders to reveal.

Hello readers. If you’ve been following Shoot the Rookie for a while you may know that there has been something missing from my life. A space to be filled. A void into which I could only stare sadly.
Yes, that’s right, I have been lacking a PS4…
…but no longer!
The space on my gaming shelf is now home to an adorable little PS4, and to mark this occasion I have written this celebratory post for your enjoyment. Continue reading “PS4 is in the House!”
