PlayStation TV First Impressions

I was really excited when Sony announced the PlayStation Vita TV a year ago in Japan. A year later, and the the rebranded PlayStation TV has arrived in North America. So does it live up to my lofty expectations?

Star Wars Despecialized Edition

After spending hours following links throughout the back alleys of the internet, I finally downloaded the Star Wars Despecialized Edition. And now... I think I finally understand a little bit of what hardcore fanboys have been complaining about.

Road Rash 3D Review (PlayStation)

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.

My 5 Most Valuable Games - 2014 Edition

With my collection surpassing the 500 game mark (something I’m not proud of actually) I decided to sit down and compile a list of the most valuable games I own.

The Console Wars

In this article, I want to take a look back at "format wars" that have personally impacted me through the last 30 years. This won't be a history lesson, but rather the story of my own personal experiences.

Long Live Laserdisc

During my weekly thrifting run I stumbled upon an awesome piece of vintage tech at the local Goodwill. What caught my eye was not a gaming system however, but was a rather massive looking hulk of black plastic and with gold accents. It was a Laserdisc player.

Top 5 Atari Jaguar Games

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.

Video Review: Wario Land: Super Mario Land 3 (Game Boy)

Wario Land: Super Mario Land 3 is the third installment of the Super Mario Land series, and the first installment in the long-standing Wario Land series of games. It was released for the Nintendo’s Game Boy in 1994.

Video Review: Knuckles' Chaotix (Sega 32x)

Knuckles' Chaotix is one of the few high profile exclusive titles for the Sega 32x and the only game to date, where Knuckles the Echidna is the star.

Video Review: Gunstar Heroes (Sega Genesis)

Gunstar Heroes is a side-scrolling run and gun game developed by Treasure and released by Sega in 1993. Gunstar Heroes is a quality, fun, side scroller from start to finish. It’s easily one of the best looking Sega Genesis games released, and it backs that up with some excellent game play.

Video Review: Suzuki Alstare Extreme Racing (Sega Dreamcast)

Suzuki Alstare Extreme Racing was developed by Criterion Software and released for the Dreamcast back in 1999. It features Suzuki motorcycles and fantasy environments. Sadly, there is nothing actually Extreme about this game.

Video Review: Clean Sweep (Vectrex)

Clean Sweep is a Pac-Man clone released on the Vectrex in 1982. If this wasn’t released on the Vectrex, I doubt anyone would care about the game. But on the beautiful vector monitor, Clean Sweep is a lot more interesting.

Video Review: Blackthorne (Sega 32x)

Blackthorne is a cinematic platformer developed by Blizzard Entertainment and released on the Sega 32x back in 1995. Blackthorne is a bit of an oddity for the Sega 32x. I find it strange that such an obscure, quality title was ported over to the Sega 32x in the first place.

Video Review: Hydro Thunder (Sega Dreamcast)

Hydro Thunder is a racing game from Midway released in arcades in 1999, and ported over to the Sega Dreamcast in time for it's North American launch. The game oozes 90's style with over-the-top track design and sound effects, and an insane difficulty level.
