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 ...

 
 
 

Fallout 76 - The B.E.T.A. Wasteland

Let me be upfront: I like Fallout 4. I know what implications that has. I know how a vocal portion of the fanbase has come to feel about the game, but I enjoyed it. A lot. And before you say anything, yes, I’ve played Fallout 1 a...

 
 
 

3 Child Endangering NES Intros

Children haven't had enough experience with reality to have developed any sense of self-preservation, which is why most parents are terrified of letting them out of sight. Take one eye off the little buggers, and they'll no doubt find ...

 
 
 

Console Command - Virtual Boy

The 90's were a weird time for video games, when you actually go back and think about it. Most people in the west choose to remember the Sega Genesis' battle with the Super Nintendo, then later the Sony Playstation vs. the Nintendo 64....

 
 
 

Hallowe'en Retrospective: Gargoyle's Quest

I wish I loved the Ghosts ‘N Goblins series more than I do. I’ve completed a large handful of games commonly thought to be notably difficult across a lot of systems, but every time I try to tackle a game in that series, I s...

 
 
 

Prompt: Design the Mega Man 12 Robot Masters

Less than a week left! Bumping to try and get a few more submissions. Mega Man 11 is out in, like, a month. Are you excited? I'm excited. I'm especially excited about the prospect that maybe Capcom will start treating the venerable ser...

 
 
 

Band of Bloggers: Kiki Kaikai/Pocky & Rocky

Mukashi mukashi -- as tales in Japanese folklore often begin -- I found myself sitting in front of an arcade cabinet in Tokyo. It had been a long two weeks of riding the rails across Japan with nothing but my limited knowledge of the l...

 
 
 
 

Band of Bloggers: Summer of Heroes

I’ve never been too enamoured with MMORPG’s, but I have always adored super-heroes. They make no sense, but they’re easily created protagonists that can be molded and crafted in many different ways; stretched in all d...

 
 
 

Taking Out the Trash: Target: Hitler

Like many people, I love killing video game representations of Nazis. Been slaying them for years, and it never gets old. Yet, while depriving digital Germany of father figures is a beloved hobby of mine, I love killing Hitler more. Da...

 
 
 

Saturday Morning Scrutiny: The Legend of Zelda

It’s funny to think that there was once a time when video games were looked at more as something for the kiddies, rather than the “serious business” it is today. It was yet to be seen as a medium ripe for storytelling...

 
 
 

Free-To-Play: Sticking the Landing

I’m too much of a snob to really touch free-to-play games. Okay, that’s not entirely true. I’m totally a snob, but the main reason is that the type of games that use the model don’t often appeal to me. On the oc...

 
 
 
 

The Worst Games I've Played: Ghostbusters (NES)

Out of the small handful of non-gaming franchises that I can claim to be a fan of, Ghostbusters is easily the one that I’m most enamored with. I built my own replica proton pack in high school, I’ve donned a flightsuit for ...
