Review: Dead or Alive Ultimate

For my latest playthrough/review, I decided to return to the Xbox shelf and pick up a title that I’ve been waiting to review for quite some time. That game is Dead or Alive Ultimate. This title is actually a remastered collection of the first two games in the Dead or Alive series. Dead or Alive is a franchise I’ve never...

Review: Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3

Continuing on with my reviews of classic arcade brawlers, I am brought to the third entry in the Mortal Kombat series, Mortal Kombat 3.

This is a review that has been a long time coming. Occasionally, I get emails or twitter messages asking me to review or discuss a particular game.

Review: Parasite Eve

One of the more popular arguments at my house around Christmas time: is Die Hard a Christmas movie? I’m a firm believer that it is.

Review: Resident Evil 3 – Nemesis

Halloween is tomorrow! And my household has been celebrating the season in full swing. The decorations are up, the jack-o-lanterns are carved and the sweet smell of pumpkin spice flows through the air.

Review: Silent Hill

Happy Halloween! I’m keeping with my tradition and reviewing a spooky game for the month of October. It’s always my goal to try to do as many as possible but sometimes due to work and other schedule demands, I’m not always able to accommodate more than one title. But fear not! With so many PS-era titles to choose from, I’m...

Remembering the Playstation

From the 80’s to the early 90’s, Nintendo was the undisputed king of the home console market. The NES and Super NES were household names, but times were changing fast. In order to keep up with new technology, rumor has it that Nintendo decided to partner with Sony on a joint project that would add CD-ROM  functionality to the Super...
