Road Rash 3D Review (PlayStation)

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.

Review: Sonic Colors (Wii)

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)

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.

A handful of these, though, clearly aimed to be otherwise, and one of these was Tetris.

Blog: The Pinball Experience - A Beginner's First Tournament

This weekend I was able to attend my first pinball tournament. Being I have not been playing very long (about six months now), it was a new and interesting experience for me. The event, dubbed the "Fairfax Fall Classic Open", was held over the course of two days (Friday/Saturday, 12/2 and 12/3) at John's Place Restaurant & Bar, in Fairfax, Virginia.

Blog: Stop Motion Gaming Collection

Happy Fourth everyone! Or at least 53% of you. In either case, I've been wanting to do some type of stop motion video with my gaming collection for a while now and finally got around to it. This isn't my entire games collection, but around 70% of it. Loose stack of Genesis games aren't terribly photogenic, and I didn't think the Xbox and Nintendo DS fit my theme. Enjoy!

Review: AtGames Sega Genesis Arcade Motion Dual

I’m not into emulation. I’m not into clone hardware. I’m not even a fan of compilation discs containing old games. I play Sega Genesis games on my Sega Genesis, with few exceptions. But when I saw the AtGames Sega Genesis Arcade Motion Dual (which I shall shorten to Arcade Motion from here on out) at Wallgreens for $19.99, I couldn’t pass it up.
