Yeah, yeah, everybody makes their lists about scary, creepy, or flat-out weird games to play each October and we’re not about to buck the trend.

Licensing a celebrity, sports star, company and others are nothing new in gaming. I have seen many liceneses in gaming over the years. Movie stars, movies themselves, even commercials have made the jump to become a license for a game many times over. Most notably, licensing occurs in sports with each new iteration of whatever […]
Maybe you were one of those slow adopters. You weren’t about to throw money at whomever released their 32-bit system first. You weren’t some die-hard Nintendo fanboy, you didn’t crap yourself with joy when Sega’s Saturn arrived on store shelves four months early, and you weren’t about to give that Sony upstart the time of […]

My normal philosophy with this column is to introduce readers to lesser-known games, and maybe help them crack a smile or two in the process, but with its 16th anniversary looming on September 9th and the realization that it fit the parameters for this column, my course was set. We’ll return to our regularly-scheduled programming […]
Final Fight is one of those series that had so much going for it but for some reason, failed when the transition of gaming went from 16-Bit to 32-Bit (both the Double Dragon and Streets of Rage series felt this mishap also). Originally, Final Fight was to be a sequel to, the fairly popular, Street […]
