Retro Review: Road & Track Presents The Need for Speed (3DO)

Release Date: 1994 Developer: Electronic Arts Canada Publisher: Electronic Arts, Inc. I feel the need… The Need for Speed series is the longest-running video game racing series. It’s a very successful series, boasting sales of over 150 million copies across multiple generations of consoles. As a fan of the racing genre, I have cut my teeth on many entries in the venerable series. There have been t...[Read More]

Spider-Man: Homecoming Review

“Does whatever a spider can!” This was the perfect Spider-Man movie I’ve been waiting for. Hell, they even opened the movie with the Spider-Man theme song from the 60s cartoon! Tom was indeed the perfect Spider-Man in my eyes. He had the wit, the smarts, and the looks. I’m just glad they skipped the whole Uncle Ben dying, great power comes great responsibility thing, and how he got his...[Read More]

Have You Seen…Zardoz?

Release Date: February 6, 1974 Director: Jon Boorman Starring: Sean Connery, Charlotte Rampling, Sara Kestelman, John Alderton, Niall Buggy Favorite quote: “The penis is evil!” – Zardoz I haven’t don’t this shtick in a while, so I figured I’d restart it by going full WTF. Imagine a movie that is more philosophically pretentious than the Matrix trilogy and has a premise that is more batshit insane ...[Read More]

Retro Review: Sonic Adventure (Dreamcast)

Release Date: September 9, 1999 Developer: Sonic Team Publisher: SEGA “Froggy! You swallowed my lucky charm!” – Big the Cat Many times, nostalgia plays cruel tricks on me. Case in point: my ex-wife and I gave my son a SEGA Dreamcast for Christmas 1999. Included with the console were some extras we picked out. They included an extra controller and two games: Soul Calibur and Sonic Adventure. ...[Read More]

Retro Review: R.O.B. Games (NES)

Robotic Operating Buddy? You’re not my buddy, guy! Release Date: October 1985 Developer: Nintendo Publisher: Nintendo When you’re trying to differentiate yourself, you’re bound to take some chances. The Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) had that issue from the onset. In an attempt to differentiate itself from the video games than had crashed before it, however, it may have tried too hard. ...[Read More]

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 Review

Fox on the run! (Note: This will be a two-part review. Punisher and Uncle Willy viewed Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 separately and wanted to give their thoughts on the movie.) Punisher (Podcast Personality) To start off, there WILL be spoilers towards the end of my section. I will note when it’s coming up. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 was just amazing. James Gunn did it again IMO. This movie s...[Read More]

Have You Seen…Night of the Creeps?

Release Date: August 22, 1986 Director: Fred Dekker Starring: Jason Lively, Tom Atkins, Steve Marshall, Jill Whitlow, Allan Kayser, Robert Kino Favorite quote: “Screaming like banshees!” – Mr. Miner The 80’s were an incredible time for schlocky, ultra-cheesy “horror” movies. I was in my teens during this decade, and many of my most loved memories involve campy-as-shit movies trying to horrify my j...[Read More]

Retro Review: Demon Attack (Atari 2600)

Release Date: 1982 Developer: Imagic Publisher: Imagic Imitation is considered the sincerest form of flattery. In video games nowadays, it’s seen by many as derivative and lazy. Back in the second generation of home video game consoles, it was almost inevitable. Imagic’s Demon Attack at least imitated with some style. Back in the early years of home video gaming, ideas for new games came in fast a...[Read More]

How Nintendo Can Rule the World: Nintendo Now

Or…Why Nintendo is not from this planet! Sometimes, a story hits you and short-circuits everything in your brain. I have spent the last week struggling to write an article that summed up my feelings about Xbox’s Project Scorpio. I watched Digital Foundry’s summation of the upcoming console’s specs, then toiled about how I would express my feelings about the console, its specs, and its place in the...[Read More]

The Walking Dead Season 7 Episode16 – The First Day of the Rest of Your Life Review

Out with a thud “You ever hear the one about the stupid little prick named Rick who thought he knew shit but didn’t know shit and got everyone he cared about killed?” – Negan So I had to binge watch the last 5 episodes of The Walking Dead because I have been busy with everything. I have been waiting to see the season finale. There will be some spoilers ahead. So here’s the ...[Read More]

Never Played: Cities Skylines

The Very Definition of Digital Crack I purposely avoid games like Cities Skylines. It’s not because I dislike them; I LOVE city planner games. It’s just that family gets really worried when they can’t get a hold of me. Sim games make me lose long tracts of time. As proof, I am writing this sentence at 4:19 AM on a Monday. I spent my Sunday building my city. ALL of Sunday. Yes, I had to use the bat...[Read More]
