TURN TO CHANNEL 3: ‘Galaga’ will always beam gamers into arcade memories

It’s difficult to explain to my nephews Ryan and Reid how awesome arcades were for me, as neither can truly understand how an arcade without the latest “Skylanders,” “Disney Infinity,” or LEGO-inspired title could be fun or entertaining in the least, but such is the folly of youth.

TURN TO CHANNEL 3: Shoot ‘em up fans shouldn’t fly past ‘U.N. Squadron’ on the SNES

TURN TO CHANNEL 3: ‘Bucky O’Hare’ is the Konami arcade classic you may have missed

The question of whether or not it is better to be a loyal fan of a video game developer or a video game console has come up now and again at my store, and I think it’s fair to say that there are benefits to following either one. In the case of developer, what I […]

WILDLY FRUSTRATED: ‘Fallout 4’ declares war on my social life – and wins before its release

The battle was […]

During this month of “Summer Shooters,” we are looking at games with […]

WILDLY FRUSTRATED: When the hell did I get old?

WILDLY FRUSTRATED: When the hell did I get old?

Last year, I turned 30. I still felt like I had the pep and vigor I had in previous years. I’d go to concerts, movie premiers, and I’d constantly hang out with friends anywhere and everywhere. Actually, none of that has changed since turning 31 a few months ago. And yet something is very different. […]
