Game Reviews: Techmo Bowl (NES)

It didn’t get more real that this in 1989 in which Techmo Bowl, the first NFLPA licensed game, was released. This was around the same time I began rooting for my team, the Washington Redskins.

I still remember my visit to gamestop around two weeks after launch. ME: Do you have any Xbox 360s? GAMESTOP EMPLOYEE: *eyebrow raised* UhContinue reading “Gamer Reviews: Elder Scrolls IV OBLIVION (XBOX 360)”
