Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D review

It's a high score galore!

One thing I miss about being young with saved up pocket money is spending it on arcade games. It's a magical experience as a child, going to the arcades and blasting coins out on games like Time Crisis. Sadly I have missed those times, I respect having money too much to spend it on a whim and arcade machines... read more

Steel Empire review

Steel Empire review

Still a classic

Steel Empire is an old side-scrolling, steampunk shoot 'em up that was released for the Sega Mega Drive/Genesis way back in the distant, archaic year of 1992. It was a great game back then, it was a great game when it got ported to the Game Boy Advance, but is it still a great game now that it's been brought... read more

Castlevania 2: Simon's Quest review

A fantastic evolution of the original adventure

RPGs are a certain breed of game. Not only are they different from the typical platformer of the NES days in mechanics, it's a different experience entirely and one that we weren't incredibly familiar, nor comfortable with. RPGs really started to take off much later, perhaps even generations later, but... read more

WWE WrestleMania X8 review

Retro review!

Wrestling. More importantly, wrestling video games. I grew up watching wrestling as a kid, and being a fan of wrestling and video games meant I played a bunch of WWE/F video games.

A haunting, gripping ride from start to finish

A quick trip down memory lane can produce some surprising results. The Nintendo Entertainment System was obviously the clear winner of its generation but among the line-up for the system was a surprising amount of great trilogies.

XType Plus review

XType Plus review

Simple, yet effective

XType was a simple arcade shoot'em up freeware game released a while back, and now it's making its appearance on the Wii U in the form of XType Plus. Is this title any different from the original? Is it worth the three dollar price of admission? In XType Plus, you simply shoot at a several different boss... read more

Comic Workshop review

Comic Workshop review

I'm no mangaka, but YOU could be!

Okay, let me begin by saying that Comic Workshop is not a game, so much as it is a tool. That said, let the review begin! Comic Workshop, put simply, is an app that gives you the tools of a comic artist. As I waited for the download to complete, I was worried that the app would be a clone of all of the... read more

And they already have your credit card number...

For those of us growing up in the post-9/11 era, crazy security measures are rather commonplace.
