R.I.P. reBlogging

As may already be apparent by the frontpage of koffdrop.com, I’ve decided to do away with reproducing news items from my collection of site feeds.

Apart from anything else, it takes away from the site and removes most of the personality – that it’s a site about Koffdrop – and swamps it with newsbites that make it seem like some random pickings of some games blog.

Although I’ve been pretty quiet of late I do have some important news to deliver next week. Important to me anyway 🙂 Some readers will already know what this news is. Suffice to say my mood has improved recently.

A quick warning and a recommendation – Don’t buy the new Tomb Raider game. It’s a massive improvement on the older games and really invigorates the franchise. However, it’s astoundingly short. Shorter than the very short King Kong game. Enjoy it but rent it. The recommendation is Outrun 2006 on pretty much any platform. If you love racing games, if you love Sega, if you love Outrun or if you just want a racing game that reminds you of the sheer fun and exhilaration that driving really fast around impossibly pretty scenery can be, then get this game.

If you want more information about Outrun or anything Sega related be sure to check out mySega which is currently going ga-ga over the game (and rightly so!)

    I’m glad you got rid of it, the articles weren’t exactly bad but… They weren’t Koffdrop.

    Hey Koff,

    Don’t know if you remember me, but I just found a link to your website and instantly recognised that username (from TGN)!

    Anyway, it’s looking good, but as for the tomb raider comment, should I not even get it for 18 on Play.com? I’m a big, BIG fan of Tomb Raider and loved the demo.

    Hi, er, Mario,
    Tomb Raider is excellent but astoundingly short. It makes King Kong look like a long game. I thoroughly recommend renting this game instead of buying it.
