Review: Dead or Alive Xtreme Beach Volleyball

Valentine’s Day is almost here! That means it’s time for another “questionable” game review… Last year, I turned up the heat with a (somewhat belated) review of Waifu Uncovered. But, this year I’m right on time with my thoughts on the Xbox classic; Dead or Alive: Xtreme Beach Volleyball! As you may have guessed by the title, this is not...

Review: Dead or Alive 3

Several months ago, I shared my thoughts on a game compilation called Dead or Alive Ultimate. This Xbox-exclusive release collected the first two games in the Dead or Alive series (a franchise originally popular on the Sony Playstation) and made them available on an entirely new system. But, even though this collection contained the first two entries in the series...

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: Halo: Combat Evolved

This is a post that has been a long time coming. Back in October I reached the next phase of my backlog gaming reviews with a review of Luigi’s Mansion for the Nintendo Game Cube.

As some of my dedicated readers might know (and more than a few pointed out), this site has recently suffered from a number of performance issues. So to ensure the best experience for my readers, I decided to put everything on hold and focus on identifying the root of...

Review: Super C

I posted a couple months ago about the release of the Contra Anniversary Collection. Since that time, my oldest son and I have been playing through these games together. Last month, I posted my review of the original Contra, a true classic from the NES era. It was a game I enjoyed immensely as a kid. Well, next up on...

Review: Bloodstained – Ritual of the Night

This is a game review that I’ve been waiting almost four years to write. As a lifelong fan of Castlevania, I still remember the excitement I felt when Koji Igarashi (former developer of Castlevania) announced he was creating his own gaming studio and his first project was going to be none other than a spiritual successor to the Castlevania series....
