Random Game Wednesdays: Cobra Triangle (Rare Replay)

If you follow me on social media, you may have seen that my laptop’s hard drive recently died on me. I did all of my blogging on that laptop, including capturing game footage for screenshots. I’m now using my desktop, which is connected to my TV because I couldn’t get my monitor to work for some reason. I have my keyboard and mouse sitting on my coffee table and I am sitting on the floor. As of right now, I don’t have the capture software installed on my computer, so for the sake of time, I thought it would be best to play something that didn’t require capture equipment to make screenshots.

Random Game Wednesdays: Snake Rattle ‘n’ Roll

I thought I’d do things a little bit differently for Random Game Wednesdays this week. If you’re new here, the way that I decide what game I’m going to play for this feature is pretty simple.

Rare Replay contains 30 games, so I entered 30 as the highest number. It gave me “11”. The eleventh game on the main menu is Snake Rattle ‘n’ Roll. Continue reading

As a result, there are a lot of games in my collection that I have little to no experience with. Top Gun: The Second Mission is one of those games. After spending an hour or two with the game, I kind of wish I hadn’t. This game is impossible. Continue reading

Random Game Wednesdays: Jurassic Park (NES)

Most of the time, movie licensed games turn out to garbage. Sure, there are exceptions, like GoldenEye 007, The Chronicles of Riddick: Escape From Butcher Bay, and Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor, but those are the exceptions to the rule. But every once in a while, you come across a game like Jurassic Park on the NES. A game that’s not exactly a great game or anything, but it’s certainly much better than what you’d expect.
