TURN TO CHANNEL 3: Climbing ‘Deadly Towers’ will make gamers want to jump off

You know, when I’m reviewing a game sometimes, even during this month of truly terrible and awful games, there can be some disagreements among gamers as to the quality or lack thereof of a certain title.

TURN TO CHANNEL 3: Asthma is somehow made worse with ‘Bronkie the Bronchiasaurus’

During this month in past years, I reviewed games that illustrated the fact that religion and video games just don’t mix. In addition, I also discussed how educational games focused on one distinct message just don’t resonate with gamers and are often remembered as downright laughable. Today on Turn to Channel 3, we take a […]

CULT CORNER: Unravel the mysterious giallo genre with Dario Argento’s ‘Deep Red’

The horror genre is rife with sub-genres, whether it’s zombies, vampires, ghosts, slashers, exploitation (which itself has more sub-genres), or a litany of other choices. Horror seemingly has something for everyone, provided you like scary movies! There is one genre, though, that many American horror going audiences aren’t familiar with, at least on a widespread […]

TURN TO CHANNEL 3: ‘Adventures of Mighty Max’ is a mightily frustrating relic of ’90s toys

TURN TO CHANNEL 3: ‘Adventures of Mighty Max’ is a mightily frustrating relic of ’90s toys

Sometimes there just isn’t any way to sugarcoat the truth or lessen the blow of playing some truly terrible games. Thankfully, most of the time, I am not subjected to such atrocities, but once a year, against my better judgment, I play some of the most awful games ever developed in the history of video […]

Truth be told, whether they are collectors or retro gamers who are making a purchase and taking it home to enjoy, most customers visiting my store in Mayfield have a set game plan of what they are looking for.

TURN TO CHANNEL 3: ‘Little League Baseball: Championship Series’ is a Williamsport winner

There’s a lot of things I love about being a small business owner selling pieces of gaming history and nostalgia, each distinct to whomever comes through my doors.

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

Every single year, sports fans gobble up titles that, aside from roster updates and perhaps graphical advances, don’t offer much […]
