Sonic The Hedgehog Trailer Anyone?

It’s finally here and I like it.

Sure Jim Carrey “stole the show”, but that little blue fuzzball actually looks better animated and his size comparison to humans is perfect.

We will obviously be keeping you updated on…

RETRO REBOOT!! Captain America and The Avengers: SNES vs Sega Genesis

Now that most of the planet is Avengers Endgame'd out, I figured I'd take a look at Captain America and The Avengers! But why not drag the 16-bit wars into this and look at both the Sega Genesis and the SNES ports?

Without going into too much lengthy detail about the war between Sega and Nintendo for any readers who may not have grown up in the…

RETRO REBOOT!! ONE (Playstation) Running n Gunning

ONE is pure action. Unbridled, unadulterated, non-stop action. It's amazing that there were TWO Contra games during the fifth generation on Playstation and Sega Saturn, and both were so atrociously generic that even a refresher their existence and atrip to Wikipedia will still leave you dumbfounded that BORING Contra games exist. Meanwhile, there's…

RETRO REBOOT!! NHL All-Star Hockey (Sega Saturn)

The Stanley Cup Playoffs kicked off a week ago, so why not a better time to talk some retro hockey? Unlike many other genres, in the ever evolving medium that is video games, sports titles age rapidly and are awkward to go back and revisit, but I find hockey titles fun to mess around with from almost any era. NHL All-Star Hockey (later becoming the…

Teaser Trailer for Star Wars Episode IX

IT'S HERE! The first teaser trailer for Star Wars Episode IX is here. The movie is officially titled Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker. Here is the trailer...

I know a lot of Star Wars fans were not very happy with episode 8. Some of them even went as far as requesting that episode 8 not be canon to the original story. Obviously that won't…

RETRO REBOOT!! Karate Champ (NES) "Kick! Punch! It's All In The Mind!"

Karate Champ, developed by Technos Japan, is a game where everyone knew it sucked, but we played anyway. In a time before Street Fighter II established the foundation for building a quality fighting game, there was  Yie Ar Kung-Fu, produced by Konami, and Karate Champ. Whereas Yie Ar Kung-Fu was a good, responsive game for its time, Karate Champ felt…

The New Trailer For DC's Joker

Well here it is. The newest DC flick. I ask myself how a movie can be made about a comic book villain without the hero. DC answers with "make the villain a..good...guy?"

Ok, maybe not "good", but definitely misunderstood and pitiful. 

This seems to be how it worked with the Suicide Squad. Make the audience think that the…

RETRO REBOOT!! The Crow: City of Angels (Sega Saturn)

I often refer to the fifth generation consoles ("Hey, Clown-Face!") as the Dark Ages. Not because the games were bad, but the 3D rendering and texture mapping was at the same very young, but still incredibly fascinating ("Hey, Clown-Face!"). There weren't a lot of 3D games, so companies didn't know how an action title would work. Enter The Crow: City…
