2 Weeks With The SNES Classic Edition

As the title suggest, I’ve had the SNES Classic Edition for about 2 weeks. That’s been enough time, along with my work schedule and Xadara stuff, to manage to complete everything on Super Mario World and to play all the way through Earthbound. Sure, I’ve touched on a few things – unlocked Star Fox 2 …

October 2017 Xbox Live Games With Gold

If this entry seems short, forgive me – I had an entire standard GwG article typed, and WordPress decided it would be good to just completely fail at the exact moment I saved the draft post. Anyway, here we go with October’s Games with Gold lineup. As is typical, nothing too much in the way …

Angry Video Game Nerd Episode 24: Spider-Man – Episode Review

Finally off the trio of Ghostbusters themed episodes, James takes on a set of Spider-Man games this 24th episode of The Angry Video Game Nerd.

I Found A 3DO Console While Thrifting

As long term readers are aware, one of my hobbies is hitting thrift stores, antique malls, and other such places and seeing what all I can find that may be of use, interesting, or otherwise something I’d want. The past few months have been somewhat dry beyond the usual odds and ends, but back on …

First Thoughts On Destiny 2

Last night I snagged Destiny 2, in my case on the Xbox One. As I have mentioned a bit before, I genuinely enjoyed the first Destiny, and its expansions. While I didn’t do much in the way of strikes and raids, I did enjoy the main game for what it was, the world, the settings, …
