Ten Random Sega Genesis Games

Well its no lie that I lack proper ways of storing games. In high school my grand father gave me two brief cases and as I was in high school I really had no reason to use a brief case. (Half of it was that I had sleep apnea and any hop...

 
 
 

F*** Steam

My new ideas about fusion

That is the fusion of the NX trying to take over the mobile and home market at once.   Fusion is the original name for the Wii U and it was very apparent that Nintendo wanted to make a product that could finally bridge the gap be...

 
 
 

Early impressions of Pokemon Go

I was super excited about the idea of Pokémon GO. Defeating the middleman and becoming your own avatar in real life was a really cool idea. However, I totally get that technology makes that reality a huge issue. I just don't kn...

 
 
 

Why 4k is not 4k

Well I totally don't get how far we have come from the 90s. Is it just that time simply passed and people moved forward? Is it that the spining of the earth around the sun actually have an effect on the inhabitants?  Or is this Fr...

 
 
 
 
 
 

Virtua Racing Sega Genesis Reveiw

What do you feel about The Game Awards?

So I was driving to my Avid class when I heard on NPR Marketplace where they interviewed the guy who produced "The Game Awards." It was a huge shock as to my knowledge nothing like this has been done before, and NPR was already calling this...

About Retrofractionone of us since 5:01 PM on 08.24.2009

I play really old video games and enjoy them.

My parents bought an NES and MM6 and Metroid and that is how I got into gaming.

You could say I am a Nintendo fan boy, but I am starting to get off of that train as of recent.

Anyway hope you enjoy my blogs and feel free to leave a comment.
