Review: Contra – Hard Corps

Completing my foray into the Contra Anniversary Collection, I’m excited to finally share my review of the elusive fan favorite, Contra – Hard Corps!

Dungeons & Dragons: Acquisitions Incorporated

Of all the fifth edition D&D products released so far, Acquisitions Incorporated is the first one I considered passing up. Compared to other D&D supplements, this one seems a little odd. You see, while most supplemental material focuses on serious things like new campaign settings and cultures, this one strikes a comical tone and introduces …

Star Wars: Cobalt Squadron – Elizabeth Wein

Wow. It’s actually been over a year since I reviewed a Star Wars novel. I feel ashamed. But, in truth, I just have not had a lot of free time. Thankfully, my schedule has normalized somewhat and I’m now back to a semi-normal schedule. So, I guess I’ll pick up where I left off – …

Review: Mortal Kombat

I wanted to take a break from Contra and change gears for a little bit. A few months ago, I posted reviews for two classic arcade brawlers. Of course, I’m talking about Street Fighter and Street Fighter II. The Street Fighter series is arguably the champion of the arcade fighting genre. But every champion has …

Update: Turn of the Century Wrap-Up (Take Two)

Yeah. I know. It was a little over a year ago since I promised to start my playthrough reviews of games from the Game Cube/Xbox/PS2 era. But, like I said at the time, before jumping into the next generation of games, I wanted to take a moment and gloss over a number of classics that …

Review: Operation C

Still digging into the depths of the Contra Anniversary Collection, I decided to take a step back from the main series and take a good look at the first portable offering to bear the Contra name; Operation C. This game was actually released about a year before Contra III, but being somewhat of a side story …

My Tech Picks (Summer 2019)

My last Tech Picks post was made a little over a year ago, and my have things changed. For those of you who have been here since the beginning, you may have heard me talk about my passion for Apple products. The very first personal computer I ever had any real experience with was the …
