Today, I've got a review of Shadow Blasters which, judging by the cover, appears to be a game about exercising on the beach.

A look at the early days of regional difficulty changes

In the primordial days before your mom was on the internet, we grew up in fear of the other. In the '80s and '90s, we frequently spoke of the mist-shrouded land across the ocean that controlled most of the games we played. Whether we discus...

 
 
 

Only 30 more years and I'll be able to start making jokes about San Francisco Rush 2049's futuristic setting. I can't wait until we all of wings on our cars!


 
 
 

I've been struggling a bit, lately. I don't want to talk about it. Let's talk about Super Mario Land 2 instead. I've got a review for it on my blog today.

 
 
 

Happy Monday! I guess. There are worse days of the week. No there isn't. Here's a review of Earthworm Jim 2 to help you get through. We can do this. Together.


 
 
 

My husband emailed me this morning saying there was no running water at the shop. He just followed to say: "Someone stole the pipes. Just talked to the repair guy. Someone literally broke in and took the pipes."

 
 
 

I can't believe I wrote a review of the SNES Jurassic Park without mentioning how bizarre its sound design is. I didn't realize I had left that out until it went up just now.


 
 
 

I spent the morning enjoying the experience of public transportation. I've returned with a review for Yomawari. It's a fitting analogy for the psychological horror one experiences on a bus.


 
 
 

I've been nauseatingly busy these past couple weeks, and that will likely be my default state for the next while. Still, I've got a Monster Party review for you fine peeps.


 
 
 
 

Hope everyone's holidays are going/went well. To help you wind down, I've got a review of Pilotwings on my blog, featuring one of the most abrupt changes of tone I've seen in an SNES game.


 
 
 

M'rry Chrimbo, nice people.

 
 
 

Merry Chrimbo, friends. I screwed up my release schedule, so instead of one last holiday game, I've got a review where I get bitter about Celeste. Enjoy?


 
 
 

Today, I prove I'm incapable of having fun and that I'm out to ruin everyone else's fun in my review of The Messenger!


 
 
 

I've reviewed another game on my blog that includes a smidge of Christmas. It's Snatcher, the Hideo Kojima holiday classic!


 
 
 

I've got a quick holiday game post over on my blog. If you're looking for a few more festive games to cram into your playlist, maybe check it out.

 
 
 

So, how 'bout it, chums? Do you prefer Streets of Rage or Final Fight?


 
 
 

Today, I'm spreading the holiday cheer with my review of the classic Christmas game, Batman Returns on the SNES.


 
 
 
 

Just finished Snatcher on the Sega CD. That's the most expensive movie I've ever beat!

 
 
 

The first time I played through Mother, I cheated. Crime doesn't pay, children, so I've made amends by playing through Earthbound: Beginnings legitimately. Here's my review.


 
 
 

Writer's block is awful. It's like starting a conversation, then suddenly realizing you have nothing to say. It's like making a sandwich, then realizing you're out of mayo. It's like going sunbathing and realizing you're out of mayo.

 
 
 

Today, I've got a review for Snake's Revenge that I've delayed posting since forever. I was going to say I've been "sitting on it," but I know the kind of snake jokes you people make.


 
 
 

This guy finally made its trip across the pond. Densha de Go-go, baby!


 
 
 

Double Dipping: It's Better In Japan

It was nearly a decade ago that I imported my first game. Earthbound had miraculously managed to set a lot of things right in my emotionally rattled mind, and I celebrated my newfound acceptance of my hobby by importing Mother for the ...
