I Can’t Stand Hype Culture

Something that I’ve been wanting to discuss for quite some time is the phenomena of hype being built up around seemingly anything and everything new.  Whenever you have something new coming up, you hear about it nonstop, and often times, in retrospect, you have to ask: why did anyone care in the first place?

Why I’m Not Buying An Xbox One X – For Now, Anyway

Today, November 7th, marks the release day for the Xbox One X, a console I’ve been waiting years for. Specification wise, the machine is a powerhouse, to be sure – currently, it’s the “most power” game console available, and honestly I want it. That simple. I want to go out and buy one today. Well, …

Angry Video Game Nerd Episode 25: Sega CD – Episode Review

The Sega CD was one of many CD based gaming devices produced in the early 1990’s to capitalize on the then-new CD-ROM technology which allowed for over 700 Megabytes of storage for game data, compared to the 2 Megabytes or so most traditional ROM cartridges allowed for at that time. The problem is that this …

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.

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 …
