Top 3 Stand-Alone GB Games Based On Classic Series (Top 3 Tuesday)

Sometimes one is capable of dealing with life’s shenanigans. Other times life starts punching below the belt. This is my excuse for failure to comment on the last couple of Top 3 Tuesday videos put out by MichaelBtheGameGenie. Enough is enough: it is time to write! This week, MichaelB proposed “Top 3 Game Boy Games […]

Top 3 Arcade Games Without Good Home Ports (Top 3 Tuesday)

Every developer crowed they were “bringing the arcade experience home” whenever a smash-hit arcade game received a console translation. Until the PS1 era, most of us took these boasts in stride because we knew in our hearts there was no way the games we loved in the arcade were going to look or sound the […]

Today MichaelBtheGameGenie wants to know your thoughts on your three favorite games based on comic books (and you better get over there and watch his video before you start my article).

Top 3 SHMUPS (Top 3 Tuesday)

SHMUPS: they’re neither candy nor some weird Asian bird flu derivative! ‘SHMUP’ is Internet shorthand for “shoot ’em up”, a genre of game where you pilot a person or craft through a series of auto-scrolling stages destroying everything in sight to earn power-ups so you can destroy everything in sight even faster. In other words, […]

Wacky Wednesday: The “Doom”ed Trilobyte

Prior to the 1990s, people looked at the IBM PC as a joke of a gaming machine. Long diskette load times, clunky processor speeds, and a choice of CGA or EGA graphics were no match for the fast-moving sprites of the NES or arcade-quality graphics of the Sega Genesis. But 1990 saw the release of […]

Top 3 Games Left Off the NES Classic (Top 3 Tuesday)

He promised he’d be back, and he is! Arnold’s back in Terminator 2: Judgment Day, which is just one of the many hundreds of games I’m choosing not to write about in response to MichaelBtheGameGenie’s latest Top 3 Tuesday video: Top 3 Games Left Off the NES Classic (which you should totally open in another window […]

MichaelBtheGameGenie is a YouTube vlogger who, as you might have sussed out from his name, enjoys playing and talking about video games among other things. On his most recent video, uploaded yesterday, he set out to revive a series made popular by edt1138, another video game vlogger, called “Top 3 Tuesday”, where one person makes […]

Six Retro Alternative Sports Games That Never Get Old

Yeah, let’s hear it for some good old-fashioned SPORTSBALL, beeyotch!! Look, you either love sports games, or you love to point out how much money EA makes repackaging and re-selling the same game (sometimes literally) to players year after year. I unabashedly fall into the latter category, not only because I can’t tell you the […]
