River City Retro: Guilty Gear's Metal Meltdown

A gamer's diet: Spaghetti Bolognaise

This is a new series I intend on doing. Other than gaming, a thing I really love is eating and drinking. For a while now I have been wanting to blog about the things I make and bake. Feeling like this doesn't belong on a ga...   read

E for Effort: Becoming a World Warrior

I remember seeing Street Fighter II in a Club Nintendo magazine for the first time. Even to this day I can't quite put my finger on it but Street Fighter II just had something to it that made me absolutely crave the game. T...   read

River City Retro Alien Wars 3: How the X-COM series fell from grace

It's been a while but I've finally been able to write the next chapter in my RCR Alien Wars series. I'm sorry about the delays but I've recently moved to Tokyo where I'll be living for a while so I've been busy recovering f...   read

River City Retro Alien Wars 2: They Came Back For More

A fine day to everyone out there and welcome to part two of the River City Retro Alien Wars. As I said last time, UFO: Enemy Unknown was a true masterpiece. It kickstarted an incredible formula of global strategy and small ...   read
