Games That Defined Me — Einhander

Games That Defined Me — Einhander

There was a time, believe it or not, when Square Soft was known for making quality games and releasing brand new role-playing games here in America. Their name stood for quality games, and not the tarnished company they have become. Nobody will deny the awesomeness that was Square during the SNES period, nobody! This trend […]

Hey I Buy Used Games Too!

I know this is completely out of left-field, but there are times that I think that I should start my own used game service. It seems to be the cool thing for companies to do these days. Just take a look at Amazon for instance. Just this last week they decided that they’re going to […]

More retro sex on the go: N+

More retro sex on the go: N+

I know that most of you aren’t that fond of handhelds and their short games, but what the hell, I’m a retro gamer as well, and N+ has that retro felling.

Bionic Commando: Rearmed is Retro SEX

<em>Bionic Commando: Rearmed</em> is Retro SEX

The first game that I ever recieved for my NES is one that I have rambled on and on about for over 20 years now. Bionic Commando was one of those rare gems for a system that wasn’t known exactly for its technical prowess. To this day, it remains one of the few 8-bit games […]
