TURN TO CHANNEL 3: ‘Double Dragon Neon’ burns bright as ’80s throwback brawler

TURN TO CHANNEL 3: ‘Double Dragon Neon’ burns bright as ’80s throwback brawler

Creating new content from an established franchise is difficult business. The struggle is real, as it relates to how much you borrow from the past versus creating a totally new experience for the gamer.

TURN TO CHANNEL 3: ‘Tecmo Cup Soccer’ kicks NES sports games up a notch

While this may seem […]

TURN TO CHANNEL 3: ‘Saturday Night Slam Masters’ doesn’t need wrestling stars to throw down

Happy Thanksgiving! Football may be the sport that comes to mind today, but because we’re talking about games I’m thankful for this month, we’re going to tackle wrestling instead. Wrestling video games had not yet entered a boom when today’s Turn to Channel 3 topic burst onto the scene on the Super Nintendo in the […]

TURN TO CHANNEL 3: No reboot or remaster needed – ‘DuckTales’ is still an NES classic

To those who are new to the retro gaming collecting scene, I am often quoted as saying that you can’t go wrong with a Disney Capcom title, and I stand firm that it is still pretty true after all these years. But what is it that makes this a constant statement of this scribe? Today […]

TURN TO CHANNEL 3: PS1’s ‘Need for Speed III: Hot Pursuit’ maintains speed and fun

It’s a pretty known fact among my family and friends that I’m not a big racing game fan, at least in the traditional sense. You won’t see me playing any NASCAR games, or even any “Gran Turismo” games, and I guess this is because I feel rather confined to the basic guidelines of these games. […]

TURN TO CHANNEL 3: ‘Galaga ’90’ successfully updated a classic for the next decade
