Game Reviews: Lego Ninjago Movie (PS4)

I am not exactly a connoisseur of the Lego video game franchise. I’ve dabbled in mostly Star Wars and enjoyed some of it, but never quite was the one that needed to collect every achievement or beat any of the games for that matter. They mostly collect dust in my gaming cabinet of all theContinue reading “Game Reviews: Lego Ninjago Movie (PS4)”

Game Reviews: Grand Theft Auto V

Grand Theft Auto V I eagerly anticipated this game from the moment it was announced. I wasn’t sure how it would play based on the news leaks; three concurrent storylines in one story? Being able to swap characters in the middle of a mission? Okay, I trusted Rockstar Games to get the job done becauseContinue reading “Game Reviews: Grand Theft Auto V”

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. Except in this game, I separated loyalty from awesomeness and seldom played with them. Out of the 12 teams, there wasContinue reading “Game Reviews: Techmo Bowl (NES)”

Game Reviews: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (NES)

This was the second game I ever beat on the Nintendo. Well, when I say “I” that means it was really a group effort. You see, this was a game that took a little time to beat. One couldn’t merely load a checkpoint and continue from a previous day. Nope, back in those days weContinue reading “Game Reviews: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (NES)”

Game Reviews: ActRaiser (SNES)

I got this game as a christmas gift. When I opened it, I said, “Cool, another Super Nintendo game to try out.” I thanked my Uncle and went on to play Super Mario World for the next week. To me, that is why I wanted the system in the first place. You see, Mario hadContinue reading “Game Reviews: ActRaiser (SNES)”

Game Reviews: Sim City (SNES)

I remember my first time witnessing the madness that is Sim City. I was spending the night at a friends house and the teenage babysitter basically ignored us as she stared at the screen and built a city. I walked up and smoothly asked a question on what I was witnessing. Me: What’s the game?Continue reading “Game Reviews: Sim City (SNES)”

Gamer Reviews: Elder Scrolls IV OBLIVION (XBOX 360)

This was the first game I ever purchased when I bought the XBOX 360. I had skipped the first XBOX so this was my first foray into what Microsoft could do. 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)”

Game Reviews: Star Wars Rebel Assault (PC)

Do any of you remember Star Wars Rebel Assault? It was quite the unique game that was ahead of its time in many ways, but had a bunch of confusing moments that made my head spin. I owned this game back in the day and played it around the same time as X-Wing for the PC.Continue reading “Game Reviews: Star Wars Rebel Assault (PC)”

Game Reviews: FZERO (SNES)

Do any of you remember this classic? When I was like 10, I had a dream. I was going to be the fastest FZERO driver on the planet. Surely, hovercraft death racing would take off by the time I grew up. I had the entire backstory memorized to. (Back in the SNES days, little bookletsContinue reading “Game Reviews: FZERO (SNES)”

Game Reviews: Super Mario Speed Running

I discovered a few months ago the video game subculture of Super Mario speed running. If you search youtube, there are many champions of past and present showing replays of their great achievements.  According to the official site http://www.speedrun.com this the current record list. Behold the glory. If there was a Gamer Olympics, America wouldContinue reading “Game Reviews: Super Mario Speed Running”
