The Sonic Mania Review

Sonic Mania is, in many ways, the Sonic game I’ve been waiting for since 1995. That would be the year I got Sonic & Knuckles, which was the last of the “Classic” Sonic the Hedgehog titles. After this, the series would eventually, in 1999, move into 3D with understandably different gameplay and, as games came …

Call Of Duty: WWII – The E3 Reveal And Interview

Getting back to E3 coverage (a week and a half late, mind you) I have more footage to share of the new Call of Duty game, simply titled “Call of Duty: WWII.” It looks like it will be a fine enough game, and certainly will go back to CoD’s roots, but I have seen some …

State of Decay 2 – Zombie Smashing Fun

I absolutely loved the original State of Decay when I played it on the Xbox One in late 2015 or so – while it was originally a 360 title, the Xbox One version contained all the expansion content and was a nice, physical collection – convenient, to say the least. It was the first game …

Firefox Support For Windows XP and Vista Ending In 2017

The popular web browser Firefox appears to finally be ending support for Windows XP and Vista based systems “sometime in 2017” based on this article from Computerworld. Firefox looks to be the last holdout on the major web browser side of things to still support the, in all honesty, ancient operating system. Microsoft ended support …

Non PC DOOM Clones – Nostalgia Nerd

Ah, Doom. Arguably the FPS of the Halloween season, and certainly one of the most legendary games on the PC side of things. With a new release this past years, Doom, as a series, is still alive and strong. Let’s go back, however, to the early 90’s UK gaming scene: The IBM-PC computer architecture that …

The Computer Chronicles – TV Meets PC (1999)

These days, if you want to watch a TV show, or a movie, or heck, even play a game, you can pretty much do it on any device you wish. Your computer, game console, phone, and even sometimes directly your TV itself can access YouTube, Netflix, Hulu, and other services for immediate streaming of videos. …

Hawken on Xbox One – Initial Thoughts and Review

I’m a big fan of the sci-fi trope known as Mecha. These massive, humanoid, piloted battle machines are in many stories key plot elements (Evangelion, Gundam, Mechwarrior, for examples) and have been present in many video games, from side instances in Halo 4 and 5, to being central gameplay elements like in Titanfall or Shogo: …

First Look at Titanfall 2 Single Player and Multiplayer Trailers

Make no mistake about it, I genuinely enjoy Titanfall. I’m a fan of mechs as is, and to have a FPS that is mech based was a great idea. Titanfall had massive hype, but sad to say, to the masses, it didn’t deliver. While being multiplayer only, usually a bane to my enjoyment of a …

First Look At Watch Dogs 2

In 2014, Ubisoft released their highly anticipated hacking-centric open world shooter “Watch Dogs”, and it was met with mixed emotions. Many players loved the unique gameplay element of hacking into various electronics, and felt the city of Chicago was captured well, but criticized the driving controls, some story and character elements and most of all, …
