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.

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.

Review: Sonic Colors (Wii)

Now that I have a Wii U (you can read my first impressions here) I can finally catch up on some of the Wii titles I've missed over the past 7 years. On the top of my list was Sonic Colors, a 2010 release that never found it's way to my beloved Xbox 360. I knew this game had received a lot of praise with it's released, but that wasn't enough to get me to invest in the Wii.

Review: Sonic Lost World (Wii U)

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.

Video Review: Sonic 3D Blast (Sega Genesis)
