Learn to plant bears in the ground in Koneko Monogatari

Do you remember the film The Adventures of Milo and Otis? I don’t. It was based on a 1986 Japanese film called Koneko Monogatari. It’s not bad, I guess, if you think you can trust critics. It’s about a kitten getting lost ...

Review: Perfect Gold

My interest in romantic fiction really only blossomed after I was married. That may sound a bit backwards, but I always found romance while you’re alone and single to be a bit like eating a big bag of pizza rolls. Your brain may tell ...

Mind your manners and hold the door in Enix's Door Door

The official release date of the Nintendo Entertainment System was October 1985, but in truth, that was a test launch. Most people in North America didn’t have a chance to buy the console until Autumn of ‘86. At that point, the ...

Abandon your individuality in EA's The Urbz: Sims in the City

In 2000, while humanity was crawling from the wreckage and trying to rebuild after the devastation of Y2K, The Sims exploded on the PC. It was an opportunity for people to look down upon their creations, trap them in the pool until they dro...

Brush up on your suplexes for Tecmo's Tsuppari Oozumou

I don’t have much to say about the sport of sumo. It’s really old and has held onto many of its traditions. It’s also not difficult to get the gist of. Push the other rikishi out of the ring or knock them off their feet. B...

 
 
 

Been unwinding with one of my favourite unwinding games. Now that it's over and I have a review for Road Trip, I'll need to find a new way to quiet the clawing grip of stress.

Review: Shadow Man Remastered

Nightdive Studios does important work. Sure, there are a lot of companies out there that are all about remaking and remastering old games, but few of them dredge the bottom of the swamp for games that lay forgotten by time. It’s one t...

 
 
 
 

When you unlock it, the background changes to an NES controller.


 
 
 

Have you ever played a game and thought to yourself, "I'm really digging this game, but I have no idea why." As someone who pretends to be a critic sometimes, it's a very frustrating feeling.

Travel to the 32th zone in Sunsoft's Atlantis no Nazo

Part of what draws me to Famicom games is the fact that I missed out entirely on the culture around it. Not only am I of an age that would have given the Super Famicom more significance, but -- and this may shock you -- I’m not Japane...

What games do you relax with?

Life is stressful, which is a phrase I hate saying because it reminds me of all the stressful things in my life. We’re living in crappy times, and many of us are in crappy situations. Thankfully, things are starting to improve for me,...

Review: Spacebase Startopia

Spacebase Startopia is a bit of a weird thing. On the surface, it is definitely some sort of remake/reimagining/remaster of 2001's Startopia. It's even right there in the name. Looking over the marketing however, you'll find a suspicious la...

Join me on my quest to see nipples in BMX XXX

BMX XXX sounds like a terrible idea on paper. It’s technically a perversion of the Dave Mirra Freestyle BMX series, which itself is a perversion of Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater. Acclaim decided that they weren’t making enough mo...

Review: Evil Genius 2: World Domination

The evil genius archetype is one that fascinates me. It’s not that outlandish that an eccentric megalomaniac could gather a group of underlings and launch a campaign against the world, but I can’t convince a courier to leave a p...
