Remember the early days of the pandemic when so many of us escaped to an island in Animal Crossing: New Horizons because we couldn't (and still can't) travel anywhere? Well, it's been an entire year already. Somehow.

RETRO REBOOT - Contra Force (NES)

When I was writing up Contra Month back in 2019, Contra Force sat on the bubble. Initially because it take quite a bit to get my copy of this game working for an adequate refresher. I'm very big on the Konami brand, they've made some of my favorite games on the planet, and while the Contra series is very notable for its run-n-gun action, it has seen…

RETRO REBOOT - Final Fantasy VII (PlayStation)

Well, it was going to happen eventually. When I started to get into game analysis about a decade ago, I really had little intention in focusing on Final Fantasy VII in any significant manner, because it's hard to say anything that hasn't already been said.
