The Versus series returns for the first time in 2021 with a different kind of matchup. While the most common comparison when setting 16-brawlers side-by-side for the Nintendo and Sega brands, it's generally Final Fight vs Streets of Rage. I feel even if you do entry by entry analysis, Streets of Rage outclasses the Super Nintendo offerings. Even the…

RETRO REBOOT - SOCOM U.S. Navy SEALs (PlayStation 2)

It's seldom when I'm such a big fan of a game in a genre that I'm completely terrible at playing. Tactical shooters are layered in complexity and generally have a lot of mechanics I'm a fan of, if you ignore the fact that I'm a horrendous shot and have the poise of a moth butting its head against a lamppost. SOCOM U.S. Navy SEALs was the first game I…
