Road Rash 3D Review (PlayStation)

The Road Rash titles on the Genesis remain some of my favorite “line-scrolling” racing games of all time.

Video Review: Super Mario Bros. 2 (Super Nintendo)

The American version of Super Mario Bros. 2 was released in 1988. The game was a critical and commercial success, becoming one of the best selling games on the original NES system. It was also released in 1993 for the Super Nintendo, as part of the All-Stars game pak. Of course as kids, we didn’t know this was a reworking of the Japanese title Doki Doki Panic, but that’s a story for another time.

Video Review: Road Rash (Sega CD)

While Electronic Arts was busy building Road Rash from the ground up for the 3DO, and later the Sega Saturn and Sony PlayStation, they also released an often overlooked title for the Sega CD.

5 More Great 16-Bit Shmups

As I've said in the past, the 16-bit generation of shmups was my favorite. The shooters of this era featured the perfect blend of speed and complexity, without feeling overwhelming.
