X-Kalibur 2097

It’s interesting to look back and see how 2d action titles tried to differentiate themselves. Castlevania relied on its gothic theme and nuanced gameplay while ...[Read More]

Abadox

  I don’t think I’ve ever met a single human being who has ever played Abadox.  Talk about flying under the radar.  There are very few reviews of the game ...[Read More]

Millennium Soldier: Expendable

I remember Rage software as a developer who was all style with little substance.  Quick to jump on any new piece of technology chances are if a new console or v...[Read More]

Wipeout

I’m pretty sure no one thought Psygnosis would be Sony’s ace in the hole when they made the leap to console manufacturer.  Not to downplay the many great games ...[Read More]

Drakkhen

This was certainly an odd one to port to a home platform.  I realize when new consoles are launched its more or less anything goes in terms of what games are av...[Read More]

Bloody Wolf

  You know when I really think about it the Turbo Grafx-16 didn’t have a wide variety of side scrolling shooters.  Oh there were plenty of shmups, in fact ...[Read More]

Valis – the Fantasm Soldier

Some things are best left in the past.  Nostalgia can obscure your memory to the truth, making you fondly remember something that in all actuality was pretty te...[Read More]

Captain Commando

By now I suppose everyone is familiar with Captain Commando through his cameo appearances in the Marvel vs. Capcom series.  But I doubt many are familiar with h...[Read More]

Wild Guns

Oh Natsume.  Most modern gamers know Natsume as the publisher of a never ending stream of Harvest Moon games and related spin offs.  This isn’t a bad thing, my ...[Read More]

Darkwing Duck

I love me some Darkwing Duck.  Created as a spoof of superheroes, the show was one of Disney’s best original creations back in the early 90s.  This was the gold...[Read More]

Isolated Warrior

Isolated Warrior?  Join the club buddy.  Literally every video game hero is sent on a one man mission to fight the forces of evil.  Your emo tears will have to ...[Read More]

Klonoa: Door to Phantomile

In the early days of the Playstation era no other third party was crucial to Sony’s success than Namco.  Their (near) arcade perfect ports of Ridge Racer and Te...[Read More]

Ikari Warriors II

You know I really hate this game.  Mind you I never thought highly of the first game either but I know stink when I smell it. And this game stinks.  Back in the...[Read More]

Star Tropics 2

Star Tropics was a solid game, one that was heavily inspired by Zelda and sort of scratched that itch for those seeking more adventure in that mold. While I enj...[Read More]

Mugen Senshi Valis

It’s strange; by any metric the Valis series is nothing but a bunch of solid and sometimes below average games yet I love them to death. Maybe that love stems f...[Read More]

Bonk 3: Bonk’s Big Adventure

It’s always sad to see a mascot fall from grace.  Like Hollywood movie stars the trip to the bottom is usually a painful process, with few bowing out of the spo...[Read More]

Twinkle Tale

Much like platformers starring cavemen (RIP Chuck Rock, Bonk, Bignose the Caveman, Dino Riki, etc.) shooters starring witches seemed to undergo their own renais...[Read More]

Little Nemo the Dream Master

Little Nemo: the Dream Master was always a title that managed to escape my grasp growing up.  Whether it was the flea market, pawn shops, or even Blockbuster vi...[Read More]

Magical Quest starring Mickey Mouse

With the close of the 8-bit era all eyes turned to Capcom to see what they would do with their Disney license.  Sunsoft had already moved on and acquired the Lo...[Read More]

Fantasy Zone

Fantasy Zone is a strange case in my video game playing history. Like After Burner I played it on the NES before ever learning that these were originally Sega g...[Read More]
