Huh, The Genesis Can Do Mode 7

Huh, The Genesis Can Do Mode 7

Being a veteran in one of the bloodiest console wars that the world had ever seen (the great conflict between the Genesis and SNES) I used to throw around terms like “blast processing” for the Genesis and RISC chipsets within the Super FX cartridges for the SNES. However it turns out that one that was […]

The Save Point – The Right Telepod

With a title like that, I’m sure that a few of you out there in videogame land know EXACTLY what I’m talking about. For the rest of you who aren’t in the know, you might want to continue reading.

No, not Mortal Kombat. METAL Combat.

 

EDUTAINMENT!

EDUTAINMENT!

Once upon a time, people assumed video games could teach valuable lessons before “How to get your money back from that hooker” and “Breaking bricks gives you money”. Here are three such titles from the golden days of the SNES for the lazy parent in all of us.

THIS is How You Make an AvP Movie

THIS is How You Make an AvP Movie

I’ve watched both AvP movies, unfortunately. I don’t know why the depths of my fanboyhood make me do deplorable acts like watching two of the worst abortions to happen to the Aliens-verse, but I have, and I do. I enjoyed every one of the Aliens Quadrilogy, yes even the Joss Whedon Alien Ressurection (anything with […]

Super Mario World Made Me Retarded

Super Mario World Made Me Retarded

Let me get this out there right now. There is in my mind, no better example of a platforming game and no “Mario” game that comes as close to perfection than Super Mario World for the Super Nintendo. I love this game like no other, and I’m sure that there are thousands if not millions […]

EA Trademarks new Wing Commander

EA Trademarks new Wing Commander

Coming from a guy who was a serious PC gamer in the late 80s to the mid-90s, I have a real soft spot in my heart for anything Wing Commander related…yes even the horrible Matthew Lillard movie with gerbil themed Kilrathi.

 

The Ninja Turtles are a cheap date

The Ninja Turtles are a cheap date

I’ll admit it, I might have been a little harsh on the Summer of Arcade yesterday. Don’t get me wrong, I’m looking forward to all the games except for Trails HD, and I think that all of them are fairly priced regardless. I was going to buy Turtles in Time Re-Shelled when it was 1200 […]

 

The Retro Goggles, They Do Nothing: Taz-Mania (Genesis)

The Retro Goggles, They Do Nothing: Taz-Mania (Genesis)

I really hate to write this. I fucking LOVE retro Looney Tunes retro games, and I don’t think I have played a bad one outside of the Sega Genesis version of Taz-Mania.  Buster Busts Loose, awesome, Tiny Toons Adventures, fantastic, Buster’s Hidden Treasure, I’m down. Hell, the SNES version of Taz-Mania(completely different than the Genesis […]

Why Does Retro Mean So Damned Much To Gamers?

Why Does Retro Mean So Damned Much To Gamers?

Hi, Xopher here, I was thinking last night as I was walking on my treadmill about the shelves of games that I have stacked up in my basement just eagerly awaitng me to breathe life (literally with the NES games) into them once again. I wondered why I am more apt to play the games […]
