TURN TO CHANNEL 3: ‘WWF WrestleFest’ crushes home consoles with arcade memories

While there are certainly a lot of practical reasons for someone to like a certain video game or, in this case, an arcade game – everything from the graphics to the music, or even the gameplay – I feel what is often overlooked are the memories you have when you stop to think about a […]

Every once in a while, an article from some random website gets shared around social media that may not contain the most reliable information, but its headline is salacious enough to get clicks and stir up controversy – or, in many cases, manufacture controversy. Such is the case with “Booth Babes And Sexy Cosplayers Are […]

My personal motto when it comes to the world of superheroes has always been, “Make mine Marvel.” The one exception has always been Batman. It is pretty hard to screw up Batman in my eyes. Comics, movies (although Joel Schumacher came pretty damn close with his movies), cartoons, videogames – Batman is arguably the one […]

TURN TO CHANNEL 3: ‘Donkey Kong Country’ is still barrels of fun over 20 years later

What makes this gig and operating a retro video game shop so much fun is when you encounter customers who share similar stories with you about a game you’re both quite fond of.

WILDLY FRUSTRATED: ‘Better Call’ Cinnabon

One of the most frustrating things in the world of nerdom is not getting in on something while it was still at the ground floor; I’m talking movies, book series, a comic run, or television program. This has happened to me from time to time over the years. One recent example is that I never […]

TURN TO CHANNEL 3: ‘Battletoads’ isn’t easy, but it’s hard not to love this NES gem

TURN TO CHANNEL 3: ‘Daytona USA’ on the Sega Saturn doesn’t hold up as well as its arcade legacy

For many years in the video game industry, the task for developers of arcade smash hits was to somehow take what stood proudly in its arcade cabinet, surrounded by eager players, and bring that same kind of excitement and gameplay to a home console.
