TURN TO CHANNEL 3: Climbing ‘Deadly Towers’ will make gamers want to jump off

TURN TO CHANNEL 3: Climbing ‘Deadly Towers’ will make gamers want to jump off

You know, when I’m reviewing a game sometimes, even during this month of truly terrible and awful games, there can be some disagreements among gamers as to the quality or lack thereof of a certain title. However, today’s topic of review on Turn to Channel 3 is not just universally loathed by gamers, but is […]

TURN TO CHANNEL 3: Asthma is somehow made worse with ‘Bronkie the Bronchiasaurus’

During this month in past years, I reviewed games that illustrated the fact that religion and video games just don’t mix. In addition, I also discussed how educational games focused on one distinct message just don’t resonate with gamers and are often remembered as downright laughable. Today on Turn to Channel 3, we take a […]

TURN TO CHANNEL 3: ‘Adventures of Mighty Max’ is a mightily frustrating relic of ’90s toys

TURN TO CHANNEL 3: ‘Adventures of Mighty Max’ is a mightily frustrating relic of ’90s toys

Sometimes there just isn’t any way to sugarcoat the truth or lessen the blow of playing some truly terrible games. Thankfully, most of the time, I am not subjected to such atrocities, but once a year, against my better judgment, I play some of the most awful games ever developed in the history of video […]

TURN TO CHANNEL 3: ‘Extra Innings’ packs extra fun into simple SNES baseball game

Truth be told, whether they are collectors or retro gamers who are making a purchase and taking it home to enjoy, most customers visiting my store in Mayfield have a set game plan of what they are looking for. However, from time to time, they’re not so sure or they are looking for something new, […]

TURN TO CHANNEL 3: ‘Little League Baseball: Championship Series’ is a Williamsport winner

There’s a lot of things I love about being a small business owner selling pieces of gaming history and nostalgia, each distinct to whomever comes through my doors. Sure, seeing eyes light up over the more popular titles is always cool, but there’s something to be said about the games you don’t expect people to […]

TURN TO CHANNEL 3: ‘NHL ’94’ earned its reputation as an all-time best sports game

TURN TO CHANNEL 3: ‘NHL ’94’ earned its reputation as an all-time best sports game

When sports titles are regarded as the best of the best, even after decades of advances in technology, the key I believe is how much fun you had and can still have playing this game. Every single year, sports fans gobble up titles that, aside from roster updates and perhaps graphical advances, don’t offer much […]

TURN TO CHANNEL 3: Nintendo’s ‘Tecmo Super Bowl’ still scores like Bo Jackson 26 years later

TURN TO CHANNEL 3: Nintendo’s ‘Tecmo Super Bowl’ still scores like Bo Jackson 26 years later

Perhaps the most asked question of developers of retro classics would be why they feel their game has endured throughout the years? Why are there still legions of gamers looking to purchase and enjoy these games 20, sometimes 30, years later? If I had to guess, I would say that a game that has a […]

TURN TO CHANNEL 3: ‘NBA Jam: Tournament Edition’ is a flaming slam dunk, even for non-sports fans

TURN TO CHANNEL 3: ‘NBA Jam: Tournament Edition’ is a flaming slam dunk, even for non-sports fans

One of the most peculiar genres as it relates to my particular video game store in Mayfield has to be sports titles. There is no in between. There are either gamers who flat out can’t stand them or those who only collect sports titles (which, since most are incredibly inexpensive, must be pretty easy). I, […]

TURN TO CHANNEL 3: TurboGrafx-16’s ‘Magical Chase’ is a crazy ride with a crazier price tag

One of the more persistent debates both in my shop in Mayfield and within the retro gaming community is whether or not games that are now worth hundreds, if not thousands, of dollars are actually worth the money. In simpler terms, if you’re going to shell out that kind of money, is the game even […]
