PlayStation TV First Impressions

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: Toy Story (Sega Genesis)

Toy Story was a late title for the Sega Genesis, released in April of 1996. It’s a side scrolling platformer, and mostly mirrors Woody’s adventure through the film of the same name. What makes this an interesting title to review are the graphics. In 1996, this game blew me away. 

Video Review: Virtua Racing Deluxe (Sega 32x)

Virtua Racing Deluxe is an update to the arcade original and launched with Sega's 32x in November of 1994. Everything in the game is fully rendered with polygons including all of the rival racers, environments, and trackside details. As a launch title for the 32x, this game certainly showed some promise for the little add-on.

Video Review: Yars' Revenge (Atari 2600)

Yars’ Revenge is a space ship shooting game of sorts released for the Atari 2600 in 1981. It's one of the system's most popular titles, so let's find out why.

Video Review: Atari Karts (Atari Jaguar)

Atari Karts was released for the Atari Jaguar in December of 1995. The Atari Jaguar was discontinued three months later, making Atari Karts one of the final, and rarer, games released by Atari.

Video Review: Bust-A-Move (Super Nintendo)

Bust-A-Move for the Super Nintendo was released in 1995, just one year after the arcade original. As you’ve no doubt played this title, or one of the dozens of sequels or knock-offs over the years, I’m going to instead focus on at what makes this version unique.

Video Review: Top Hunter (Neo Geo CD)

Top Hunter: Roddy & Cathy was released by SNK for the Neo Geo CD in 1994. The title is a side scrolling action game and a breath of fresh air in comparison to the flood of fighter games usually associated with the Neo Geo platform.

Video Review: ATV Racers (Sony PlayStation)

In the year 2000, Merlin Racing was released on the ill-fated NUON. Three years later the developers chopped the game into four parts and released them on the PlayStation 1 as budget titles. I’ve previously looked at Miracle Space Race, and today we’ll be looking at ATV Racers.
