Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection

As I mentioned in some of my more recent posts, lately there’s been a rise in popularity for retro game collections. It could be argued that Capcom started this trend with the release of the Mega Man Legacy Collection. This was soon followed by another classic bundle of games, the Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection. …

Blood: Fresh Supply

Like I mentioned in my last post, it seems that remasters and re-releases of classic games are showing up every time you turn around. Now don’t get me wrong, I’m not complaining one bit.

These days, it seems that retro games are all the rage. The last few years have seen countless collections and remasters of classic gaming titles.

Catching up with Star Wars

Over the last year or so, I’ve really fallen behind on my Star Wars related posts. For quite a while I was pretty consistent with my reviews of Star Wars comics and novels. But somehow, I let time get away from me. Starting next month, I’m going to be playing catch up. I’ll be picking …

Retro Rewind: Super Nintendo Entertainment System

Back in the fall, I made a post where I discussed the best way to experience classic NES games. My suggestion, of course, was the NES Classic console. In case you’re not familiar, the NES Classic is a modern plug-and-play style system, designed by Nintendo themselves. The system comes pre-loaded with a number of classic …

Review: Phantasy Star

When I was growing up in the 80’s, there were two types of kids. Nintendo kids and SEGA kids. I, like most others, was firmly committed to Nintendo. But, those kids that stood with SEGA always had a reputation for being extremely loyal to their underdog console. I’ll admit, my exposure to SEGA consoles was …
