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 …

Spring 2019 Update

A few months ago, when I completed my initial playthroughs for the PS1/N64 era, I introduced the “Retro Flashback” series of articles on this site. This was my way to sort of play catch up before starting to dive into the next generation of gaming. So far, I’ve covered the golden age of video games …

Project: Retro Rewind

Now that I’ve completed all the games on my 64-bit Generation playlist, I’m excited to announce a new project. Before I dive into what is, for the lack of a better term, the “128-bit era”, I’m going to take some time to do a bit of a refresher on some of the generations I’ve already …

Update: Turn of the Century Wrap-Up

I know… I said it last December. But this time I mean it. My “turn of the century” playthrough reviews are almost at an end. I thought I’d be done with these reviews at the beginning of the year. But, my plans were delayed by the building of my new PC. Then, a change to …
