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]

Retro Review: Chu Chu Rocket (DC)

Release Date: November 11, 1999 Developer: Sonic Team Publisher: SEGA I keep coming back to the SEGA Dreamcast. With all the awesome old-school games I can pick through, it’s the Dreamcast I want to go back to. For this Retro Review, my pick has more meaning to usual. A little over a week ago, I wrote an article espousing my love for the console and my amazement at its longevity. That led to a dis...[Read More]

Marvel’s Iron Fist Impressions

An Iron Fist without Focus Iron Fist, Netflix’s newest series in the Marvel universe, is not the disaster the critics made it out to be. In certain parts, it’s quite enjoyable. The total package, however, feels more like a story about family dynamics, not a kick-ass hero. Ultimately, I signed up for a martial arts epic and got Days of Our Lives with some Kung Fu thrown in. The first few episodes w...[Read More]

Retro Review: Life Force (NES)

30 Lives, Excessive Force Release Date: August 1988 Developer: Konami Publisher: Konami There is a term I bring up whenever I hear someone raised on Xbox and PlayStation complain about the difficulty of a game nowadays. My daughter is one who has complained as such. My response to her is the same as it is to anyone who never played a game on a system older than the Nintendo 64. There are three kin...[Read More]

Release Date: March 30, 2007 Director: Stephen J. Anderson Starring: Jordan Fry, Angela Bassett, Daniel Hansen, Matthew Josten, Nicole Sullivan, Dara McGarry, Laurie Metcalf, Wesley Singerman, Steve Anderson Favorite quote: “If my parents figured out I brought you from the past, they’ll bury me alive and dance on my grave!” – Wilbur I had planned to write about The Emperor’s New Groove in th...[Read More]
