The year was 1984 and I lived on the east side of Las Vegas.

You would think porting The King Of Fighters ’95 to Gameboy would be a disaster, especially when you consider the abortions that Mortal Kombat, Street Fighter II, and Killer Instinct were on the portable.  The game has a huge cast with 15 playable characters.  All of the favorites are here.  And even with only two […]

Sprites are pretty large in the game.  Including the bullets.  Shooting an enemy […]

With Super Mario Bros. turning 25 what better way to celebrate than to listen to Bill O’Reilly’s Special Report.

Well… I finally received the wrong copy of Rolling Thunder 2. You might be asking how it could be the wrong copy, since there is only one version available on SEGA Genesis. If you’ve been following my tirade then you know I bought a second copy out of spite. Well this copy arrived first even […]

This is meant for fun only…
