The Road Rash titles on the Genesis remain some of my favorite “line-scrolling” racing games of all time. The controls were tight, the combat was fun, the music was catchy, and the track design gave a great three dimensional feel. From the rolling hills to the tight turns, the Genesis games gave a realistic sense of screaming down the highway that few racers of the era could match.
Atari Jaguar. These two words seem to muster up so much controversy amongst the mainstream gaming press. “The controller is horrible” they say, “it’s not really 64-bit.” “Doom doesn’t have music.” For those that own a Jag, most of that disdain is misguided. With that in mind, I present to you the Top 5 Atari Jaguar games.

Sonic the Hedgehog is favorite game franchise of all time. I absolutely loved the Genesis titles, and even loved the spin-off games like Sonic 3D Blast (Sega CD, Saturn) and Sonic R (Saturn, PC). My love for all things Sonic was reaffirmed on 9/9/99 with the release of Sonic Adventure for the Dreamcast’s North American launch.

The PlayStation TV just came out recently, and I picked one up and have been using it quite a bit. This is a brief/casual look at the hardware, a couple of things in the GUI, a super brief look at the PS Store, and gameplay footage from the various platforms the PS TV is compatible with (PS Vita, PSP, PS1, PS Minis, and PS Mobile games).
