NES: Star Wars

NES: Star Wars

Star Wars just seems like it would be the perfect series to make video games for yet for some reason there have been many failures along the way. While this game is far from a failure, I still can‟t help but be a little disappointed by it. One of the problems that the...

Games In Other Media: Sonic The Hedgehog

Games In Other Media: Sonic The Hedgehog

It's bound to happen sooner or later.  A game has become a sensation, copies of it are flying off the shelves and the next thing a 1980's/90's parent knows is that their kid LOVES that game/franchise.  Being a child of the 90's I can tell you exactly what it was like...

FC Mobile

FC Mobile

Mike Ditka’s Big Play Football

Mike Ditka’s Big Play Football

Mike Ditka’s Big Play Football is yet another miserable football game created for the NES. The one thing that separates this game from the pack is that it was never released. Nintendo Power mentioned it in their "Coming Soon" section for almost an entire year while...

What is Hardocre?

What is Hardocre?

E3 2008 has come and gone and there is one lingering issue I still cannot wrap my head around. No, I am not talking about Final Fantasy XIII finding its way to the Xbox 360. Nor am I talking about the lack of interest for E3 as of late. I am talking about the terms...

North and South

Adventure for the 2600

Adventure for the 2600

First! No I’m not talking about those annoying posters that have to be the "first" to make a post on a video, blog, or anything else you can leave a comment on. I’m talking about the "first" game to be an action-adventure game, "Adventure"! Original title right? Well...
