Retro Review: Einhänder (PS1)

Release Date: Nov 20, 1997 Developer: Square Co., Ltd. Publisher Square Co., Ltd. The shoot-‘em-up is one of my favorite video game genres. The love began with Tempest in the arcade, and it hasn’t subsided. What has subsided, however, is the genre. Nobody seems to be interested in making too many shooters outside of the indie space. Cuphead tided me over for a bit, but that’s a run-‘n-gun game. I ...[Read More]

Retro Review: Super Star Wars (SNES)

Release Date: June 1, 1992 Developer: Sculptured Software, Inc., LucasArts Entertainment Company LLC Publisher: JVC Musical Industries, Inc. Once upon a time, I was in love with the Star Wars universe. It wasn’t all-encompassing; I loved Star Trek as well. But back in the day, an upcoming Star Wars movie would whip me up into a frenzy. My love wasn’t so all-encompassing that I’d go to the theater ...[Read More]

Detective Comics #27: The Bat-Man: The Case of the Chemical Syndicate

Written by: Bill Finger Art by: Bob Kane Released on: May 1939 Published by: DC Well, I usually tend not to review old comics. When I do, people tend to ask why I would review something that is that old. The answer is easy: have you read the comic or know anything about where the characters come from? Do you know how each of your favorite characters started? Have you seen what they have faced and ...[Read More]

Retro Review: Mega Man 2 (NES)

Release Date: December 24th, 1988 Developer: Capcom Co., Ltd. Publisher: Capcom Co., Ltd. When I saw the announcement that Capcom was resurrecting the Mega Man franchise for the Blue Bomber’s 30th Anniversary, you bet I was aware. As a result of the news, I scrapped the Retro Review I was working on and started this one. Simultaneously, I worked on my write-up for the Mega Man 11 announcement. I w...[Read More]

Retro Review: Rampage (Arcade)

Release Date: 1986 Developer: Bally Midway Manufacturing Co., Inc. Publisher: Bally Midway Manufacturing Co., Inc. Every time Hollywood decides to adapt a video game into a movie, I cringe. The track record for video game movies is littered with horrible adaptations. There are more sincere efforts that failed to strike a chord like Super Mario Bros. and Doom. There’s the Resident Evil series, whic...[Read More]

Netflix: The Punisher Impressions

(Ed. Note: I just have to mention this. Digital Crack writer and podcast bruh Punisher is reviewing the Punisher Marvel Netflix series. I mean, it had to happen, right?) I’ve waited so long for Netflix’s The Punisher to come out. Once the comic book gods answered my prayers I was finally able to see it. And let me tell you, it did not fail my expectations one bit! There are those that have the urg...[Read More]

Retro Review: House of the Dead (Saturn)

Release Date: March 1998 Developer: Sega AM1 R&D Division Publisher: SEGA of America, Inc. Last year, I decided to do a Halloween-themed Retro Review. I took a look at Castlevania: Symphony of the Night because I love the game. But in a twist, I chose to look at the Japanese SEGA Saturn version. The game was different enough compared to the U.S. PlayStation version that it made it a novel revi...[Read More]

Freakish Season 2 Review

Barrett gets a pass. NOTE: For those who have not seen Season 1 of Freakish, I advise that you stop and either go watch the show or read my review here. There will be spoilers for the first season. Season 2 starts immediately after the ending of Season 1, where the rest of the surviving characters are mourning the death of Natalie. No one has heard from LeShaen anymore either. We see that there ar...[Read More]

Yeah, not with this movie. I left the Favorite Quot...[Read More]

Retro Review: GoldenEye 007 (Nintendo 64)

Classic game with a couple of flaws Release Date: August 25th, 1997 Developer: Rare, Ltd. Publisher: Nintendo of America, Inc. Nostalgia is a bit of a double-edged sword. I’ve often gone back to play games I remember playing when I was younger and enjoying. Several times, my experience now differs greatly from what I remember. It happened when I replayed Sonic Adventure for a previous Retro Review...[Read More]
