Local wrestler hopes to see the sport make a comeback at the Lackawanna College Student Union Gym

It’s not Madison Square Garden or Korakuen Hall. It’s not even Philadelphia’s Viking Hall. But the building at 500 Jefferson Avenue in Scranton has a long legacy in the history of professional wrestling. Once, it was known as the Scranton Catholic Youth Center, and just about every WWE wrestler from Bruno Sammartino to Mick Foley, […]

TURN TO CHANNEL 3: ‘Contra’ is an NES challenge well worth accepting

Wow! Can you believe Memorial Day has come and gone and now here we are in the month of June? Summer is officially coming this month, so I decided that Turn to Channel 3 should take a look at some games with a lot of shooting, a lot of explosions and, overall, a ton of […]

TURN TO CHANNEL 3: ‘Conker’s Bad Fur Day’ gave us the best days of the N64

May was a great month for your scribe. Not only did I turn 34 with some great family and friends around me, but I also got to go to an old school arcade, purchase some classic games that I had been looking for seemingly forever, and I got an original Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Party […]

WILDLY FRUSTRATED: Creativity is dead, and I know the killers and their motives!

There will not be a gentle, gradual slide into my argument today. I am the prosecutor in the court of public opinion, and today I am stating my case to the judge and jury. Or maybe I’m a lunatic on the streets raising a makeshift sign over my head proclaiming “the end” to any passersby. […]

TURN TO CHANNEL 3: ‘Bully’ for the PS2 is head of the Rockstar class

I hope you’ve been enjoying this month of my favorite games so far, as we have two more games we’ll be taking a look at in May. Today’s game, like the first two we looked at, is one that took staples of the company it was developed by and turned them on their head. The […]

TURN TO CHANNEL 3: ‘Chrono Trigger’ remains as playable and revolutionary today

Last week here on Turn to Channel 3, we were discussing “EarthBound,” a classic RPG for the SNES, and in that review, I discussed how it was a game that changed the way people looked at the genre. It was a sudden jolt to it, a breath of fresh air, and I felt, as I […]

WILDLY FRUSTRATED: McDonald’s, we don’t want a new Hamburglar – we want all-day breakfast. Now.

WILDLY FRUSTRATED: McDonald’s, we don’t want a new Hamburglar – we want all-day breakfast. Now.

Say what you will about McDonald’s, but I don’t know a single person with the willpower to resist an Egg McMuffin and a hash brown. Their breakfasts are simply amazing! Yes, it is fast food, but who cares when it tastes that good? For those who share my sentiments, I have some news for you. […]

It’s May, the month of the birth of your favorite gaming scribe (as I turned 34 prior to the publishing of this fine review), so what does the Turn to Channel 3 columnist do on his favorite month all year? Why, he takes a look at four of his favorite games in what shall be […]

MOVIE REVIEW: ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron’ is another successful successor by Marvel

Do you want your summer blockbusters to balance spectacular action and drama with character development and a few laughs along the way? If so, then you may want to check out this little quasi-independent film by a virtual Hollywood unknown that was just released. Can you taste the hyperbole? We hope so, as we’re clearly […]

Avengers Throwbacks: Slide across the images to see them then and now

Avengers Throwbacks: Slide across the images to see them then and now

“Avengers: Age of Ultron” debuted last night in North America to an impressive $27.6 million, so it’s obvious that awareness of these characters is at an all-time high, but not everyone recalls their classic comic book origins. These awesome images courtesy of shirts.com and programmer Tony Bowe take new illustrations from Kate Willaert drawn in […]
