Mark & Becky Games was started by two British gamers who bloody love Nintendo. We don’t take it seriously, we don’t care about being the best, we just wanna have a laugh.
It all started in Summer 2012 when I forced Bex to play Resident Evil 5 on PS3 (which is a pretty terrible game, I can assure you) but absolutely hilarious as co-op. I quickly lost count of the amount of times Bex let me die while she hid in the corner, forgetting that the game was over if I died.
From then on, I actually found it pretty tough to play any games that weren’t co-op and made Bex my number one player two from that day forward. I sadly found that most games consoles frown on local co-op unless you want to play FIFA (which I haven’t desired to since FIFA 98 on MegaDrive) so our gaming sessions remained pretty sparse for the next few years.
In 2014, I eventually found that Nintendo were pretty welcoming to co-op gaming and bought a Wii U with Mario Kart 8 the very next day. Being the first Nintendo console I’d purchased since Gamecube, it felt nice to be back in the world of Nintendo.
We eventually agreed on letting the rest of the world be a fly on the wall during our gaming sessions, which always had hilarious results. Despite Bex’s lack of interest in gaming since Crash Bandicoot 3, she still has no reservations about telling me I’m rubbish, despite the six years I spent honing my skills on Counter-Strike 1.3/1.5, World of Warcraft and Starcraft. Don’t worry, I’m used to this type of treatment and once threw her to her doom on Super Mario 3D World simply out of spite.
Here on the blog, we both review the Wii U games we play but if you like the sound of all of the above, then you should probably subscribe to us on YouTube. After all, that’s where all the action is. Don’t forget to stop by on Facebook, Twitter & Instagram to say hi too, we love anybody who loves us.
