TURN TO CHANNEL 3: Sega Genesis’ ‘Golden Axe’ is still worth wielding

Everyone has their favorite systems and favorite games they grew up with, while at the same time, there are those systems and games we never got into, and even today we’re still overly critical of them. As some readers may know, I didn’t grow up with a Sega Genesis, and despite the fact that I […]

INFINITE IMPROBABILITY: Dear superhero films, embrace the spandex – it worked for Deadpool

In the original “X-Men” film, Wolverine questions the uniforms they’ve donned to fight Magneto and the Brotherhood just before their final confrontation. In response, Cyclops quips, “What would you prefer? Yellow spandex?” Actually, yes. Yes, I would. That was 15 years ago, which seems like a lifetime ago now, and for some young fans, it […]

WILDLY FRUSTRATED: ‘Genderbusters,’ or ‘Boys and girls living together – mass hysteria!’

It has been a few months since the all-female “Ghostbusters” reboot was announced. There is a certain camp of people who have shit all over this announcement based on the “all-female” theme alone, but that initial shock has worn off.

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

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. Furthermore, it’s really cool when you can remember exactly where you were in life when you first heard about a particular game, […]
