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: New blood (and console) makes ‘Castlevania: Bloodlines’ worth hunting down

As a devoted Nintendo consumer through most of my youth (with the exception of the Nintendo 64 (which caused me to jump ship to the Sony PlayStation for several years), I was always puzzled to see franchises that were firmly established on Nintendo consoles take a dip in the Sega waters. They normally seemed so […]
