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.

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: 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.

Video Review: Toro Dreamcast VGA Box

The Toro Dreamcast VGA Box by BBS is a regular Dreamcast VGA Box, sync combiner for use with the XRGB-mini Framemeister and a scan-line generator all in one. It's a beautiful device hand-built in Turkey, and you should buy one.

Video Review: Sonic Adventure (Sega Dreamcast)

When you combine the awesome graphics and sound, with good controls and divine level design, you get one of the greatest 3D platformers ever created. It's Sonic Adventure for the Sega Dreamcast.

Video Review: Choplifter (Sega Master System)

Choplifter is another arcade title ported over to the Master System by Sega and released in 1986. Generally, I find many of these Master System ports underwhelming, and it’s obvious the 8-bit hardware couldn’t pull off what Sega was doing in the arcades at the time. Choplifter on the other hand, is awesome.

Video Review: Kabuki Quantum Fighter Review (Nintendo Entertainment System)

Kabuki Quantum Fighter is a side scrolling action game released on the original Nintendo Entertainment System back in 1991. You play the role of Scott O'Connor who transfers his brain into a computer program in order to fight off a virus hacking Earth's defense systems.

Video Review: DuckTales Review (Nintendo Entertainment System)

DuckTales is a side-scrolling platformer developed by Capcom and released on the NES back in 1989. It was based on the popular Saturday morning cartoon, and the game was created by some of the same folks who worked on the excellent Mega Man series.
