TURN TO CHANNEL 3: ‘NHL ’94’ earned its reputation as an all-time best sports game

TURN TO CHANNEL 3: ‘NHL ’94’ earned its reputation as an all-time best sports game

When sports titles are regarded as the best of the best, even after decades of advances in technology, the key I believe is how much fun you had and can still have playing this game.

CULT CORNER: ‘Season of the Witch’ is an interesting departure for horror icon George Romero

CULT CORNER: ‘Season of the Witch’ is an interesting departure for horror icon George Romero

Director George A. Romero’s name will forever be attached to zombie lore.

TURN TO CHANNEL 3: Nintendo’s ‘Tecmo Super Bowl’ still scores like Bo Jackson 26 years later

TURN TO CHANNEL 3: Nintendo’s ‘Tecmo Super Bowl’ still scores like Bo Jackson 26 years later

Perhaps the most asked question of developers of retro classics would be why they feel their game has endured throughout the years?

TURN TO CHANNEL 3: ‘NBA Jam: Tournament Edition’ is a flaming slam dunk, even for non-sports fans

One of the most peculiar genres as it relates to my particular video game store in Mayfield has to be sports titles. There is no in between. There are either gamers who flat out can’t stand them or those who only collect sports titles (which, since most are incredibly inexpensive, must be pretty easy). I, […]
