He’s baaaaaaaaack…

July 8, 2010

Well few pieces of news have literally blown me out of my seat, but I can fairly say that this one definitely did the job.  After waiting and waiting for the clock tower movie to announce some updates, I thought the franchise was dead, and I moved on to expecting other games and playing Penumbra. But then today, lo and behold: Remothered! An amazing, freaking scary, remake of all that goodness you can’t find in a game today (without a stamp of M).

May 6, 2010
So as I sit waiting for one of my favorite childhood franchises to download, Starcraft 2 Beta, I tried to think of what obscure game I could talk about.  Great titles went through my head; Faxandu, Super FX Racing, Milo’s Astro Lanes, Panzer Dragoon, Bug, Firepower 2000, even Link 2.  But then it hit me, like the 100% install bar for SC 2, U.N.

May 29, 2009

Angry at Andrew for not continuing this potentially fun series, I decided to post a video in his absence… and I’m sure it will please everyone.

So… How many people, by a show of hands, liked Mega Man 2. Yeah? So did I. Sure, it was a tough game at parts, but it was FUN – something lacking in many of today’s games.

I’m sure the answer to that is a resounding yes, with the exception of the few of you who are too conservitive to change anything about the past. Read the rest of this entry »
