Random Game Wednesdays: Eternal Champions (Sega Genesis Mini)

I excitedly bought my Sega Genesis Mini on the day it came out, planning to play its really good selection of games for hours on end. That didn’t happen, I mostly just played a bit of Mega Man: The Wily Wars and then got distracted with other stuff. But today I thought, hey, Random Game Wednesdays is a great excuse to play it again. There’s so many good games included, there’s no way I’d end up with a bad one, right? Continue reading

Shin Megami Tensei Liberation Dx2 First Impressions

I wasn’t planning on playing the new Shin Megami Tensei mobile game, Liberation Dx2. I hadn’t even really been paying that much attention to it, but I saw a Facebook post this morning that mentioned it was out now, so I figured, why not? It’s free and I’ve enjoyed  the few SMT games that I’ve played. So, I went to the Google Play Store and downloaded it. Continue reading

Top Ten Games Of 2017

This was a much crazier year than last year. When I had to make my top ten last year, I had only played a total of thirteen games all year. That’s how games I don’t even particularly like, such as Pokemon Go, made it on to my list. This year, I’ve played over thirty. That means that not only did I have to make way more cuts, but there isn’t a single game on here that I didn’t love. That’s better if you ask me. Continue reading

Random Game Wednesdays: GunValyrie (Xbox)

I thought I would do something a little bit different for Random Game Wednesdays this week. I’ve covered games on several different platforms, going back to the NES and SNES multiple times, but I haven’t written about a game for the original Xbox yet. My Xbox collection is pretty small, only about twenty games, but there’s some real gems in there. Unfortunately, the random number generator decided to give me a game that I absolutely can’t stand.  Continue reading

Random Game Wednesdays: Gundam Side Story 0079: Rise From the Ashes

With the Dreamcast turning 17 just a few days ago, I thought it’d be fun to play another Dreamcast game this week. This time, the random number generator gave me a game that I spent a lot of time with back in the day, but almost never hear anyone talk about. That game is Gundam Side Story 0079: Rise From the Ashes, a Dreamcast exclusive that came out within the first year of the console’s lifespan. Continue reading

Random Game Wednesdays: Sword of the Berserk: Guts’ Rage

It’s kind of weird that I own a copy of Sword of the Berserk: Guts’ Rage. It’s a Dreamcast game based on the manga and anime “Berserk”, which I’ve never read or seen. If I remember right, most of the coverage for the game before it was released focused on just how over the top the violence was. That’s probably why I ended up getting it. It’s actually kind of funny, because other than some blood splatter when you hit enemies, the level of violence on display doesn’t seem to be anything too spectacular.  Continue reading

Project Sonic and What it Could Mean for the NX

Last night, Sega revealed two new Sonic the Hedgehog games. One of them, Sonic Mania is a 2D platformer that brings back levels from Sonic, Sonic 2, Sonic 3, and Sonic CD, as well as some new levels. I think this game looks great. But this post isn’t about that one. Rather, I want to briefly speculate about a little logo that appeared at the end of the trailer for the other game, currently called Project Sonic.  Continue reading
