Sonic Generations (PC/PlayStation 3/Xbox 360, 2011)

Note: This is a review for the PC/PS3/360 versions of Sonic Generations only. This review does not apply to the 3DS version.   So, today's June 23rd. Why is that important? Well, 25 years ago today, Sonic the Hedgehog made his debut on the Sega Genesis (mega drive if you don't live in the united states), starting off a whole series of games spanning across different genres and consoles. And while I already reviewed the first game (both the original and the terrible GBA remake), I think it'd pr

Portal 2 (PC, 2011)

Portal was a game that was initially packaged in with "The Orange Box" collection from Valve, and was used as more of an experiment that anything, but it ended up getting great reviews, which led to the creation of it's highly anticipated sequel, Portal 2.   Now, before 2011, I was surprisingly not that interested all that much in video games. Sure, I loved playing games like ROBLOX, Pokemon LeafGreen, Sonic 1 and a bunch of weird virtual pet games on my GBA, but other than that, I honestly wa

Undertale: PC Review (2015)

Note: This review may contain spoilers from a heavily story-driven game.   The fact that I wrote this after not making any reviews quite a long time.. It fills you with determination.   Undertale is a new RPG indie game that was released this year, created by the indie developer Toby Fox, using the GameMaker Studio engine. It was first funded through Kickstarter, reaching way over it's goal of $5000, and released as a demo in 2013, before being released 2 years later. Since it's release, it'

Doom: PC Review (1993)

Tomorrow's Halloween, so I might as well review something to fit the kind of atmosphere of Halloween. And I think Doom's a pretty good contender for that!   Doom was first released in 1993 for PC by ID Software, and is often hailed as one of the innovators in FPS games, for setting new standards and establishing a good design template. But has it lasted the test of time over the years? Let's find out.   This review comes from the opinions of the poster himself. This does not reflect the opin

Sonic 3 & Knuckles: Sega Genesis Review (1994)

In 1994, Sonic Team released the next addition to the Sonic franchise - Sonic the Hedgehog 3. While this game was met with high praise, it felt rather unfinished and too short for some people. The reason for that is due to time constraints and pricing, they ended up splitting it, and the second half of it took form later that year in 1994 as Sonic & Knuckles, which had a lock-on ability, allowing you to attach it to Sonic 3, and letting you play the full game as it was originally intended.

Sonic CD: Sega CD/Steam Review (1993)

In 1991, Nintendo released their answer to the Sega Genesis taking over the market - The Super Nintendo Entertainment System. The Super Nintendo, while having slower speeds, had better hardware for the most part. And to answer that, Sega developed a CD add-on, that while having the same power of the Genesis, had a disc drive, which allowed for cheaper games and more space. And to get people interested in the system, they developed a game with the blue hedgehog, originally intended to be a sequel

Sonic the Hedgehog 2: Sega Genesis Review (1992)

After Sonic the Hedgehog came out on the Sega Genesis, it was a massive hit. The game ended up selling well, and boosted sales of the system in the United States. So, by now, Sega thought "well time to make a sequel," leading to the development of Sonic the Hedgehog 2.   However, at the time of development, there were two Sonic 2s planned. One being developed by Sega of America, and one being developed by Sega of Japan, however the Sonic 2 we got was the one developed by Sega of America, and t

Sonic the Hedgehog: Sega Genesis Review (1991)

gotta go fast!1   Now, if you have been reading my game reviews since I started doing them (or at least around April), you might know that in April of this year, I did a month of Mario, where I went over some of the classic Mario games on the NES and SNES. So, this time, I feel I might as well take a look at some of the classic Sonic games, another one of my favorite game series. Now, to be quite honest, I'm personally more of a Super Mario and Freedom Planet fan, but still, I do think Sonic t

Bubsy in Claws Encounters of the Furred Kind: SNES/Genesis Review (1993)

..................................... Why?   Well.. today I'm reviewing Bubsy in Claws Encounters of the Furred Kind, or simply Bubsy. Or Bubsy 1, whatever you feel like.   Now, since I reviewed a great Sonic inspired game last week, I decided to review a rather bad one this week. Kind of as a way to build up to my month of Sonic. Now, you know how people always complain about there being an over-saturation of FPS games these days? Well.. in the 90's, there was an over-saturation of mascot-b

Freedom Planet: PC Review (2014)

I've wanted to talk about this one since I got it, so yey!   Anyway, Freedom Planet is a game that was released on Steam (Windows) in 2014, and ported on Linux and Mac earlier this year, and is planned to be ported to Wii U sometime soon. Freedom Planet was originally planned to be a Sonic fangame, however was changed to it's own IP and own identity, starring characters named Sash Lilac, Carol Tea and Milla Basset.   I decided to pick up this game recently as one of my friends, @, picked it

Castlevania: NES Review (1986)

Castlevania is a popular game that came out on the Famicom Disk System in 1986 and the Nintendo Entertainment System in 1987 by Konami, who released another NES classics like Contra and Adventure Island, as well as games like Metal Gear Solid, and it has spawned into a series that to this day many gamers love, including the Angry Video Game Nerd.   Therefore, I decided to purchase the first game on the 3DS Virtual Console, and here are my thoughts.   This review comes from the opinions of th

Sonic Adventure 2: Dreamcast Review (2001)

Welp, I know many will probably disagree with me on this one!   Now, Sonic Adventure 2 was released for the Sega Dreamcast in 2001, and was pretty much Sega's last chance to fight with the PS2 and the upcoming Xbox and Gamecube. And did it accomplish that? Well... yes and no. Yes, because to this day, Sonic Adventure 2 is considered by many as the best 3D Sonic games, and one of if not the best Sonic game of all time. However, in the end, even though how successful this game was, the Dreamcast

Thoughts on PC Gaming (2015)

Well.. this has been a long time coming. I meant to write this up a while ago, but I've been putting it off way too much, so I feel it's about time I get to this.   Now, when I really got into gaming, I was more of a console/handheld person. I did play the heck out of ROBLOX from 2009 to.. well, present day actually, but I usually stuck to playing games for the Wii and DS (didn't have any of the others besides my brother's 360 at that point ), but as the 8th gen has rolled along.. honestly, be

Angry Video Game Nerd Adventures: PC Review (2013)

Warning: Contains Swearing   Now, as you might already know, I'm a huge fan of the Angry Video Game Nerd. He is simply my favorite Youtuber of all time, and his videos always make me laugh.. most of the time anyway. Wasn't a huge fan of his Ikari Warriors review .   But anyway, due to the fact that I was a big fan, I decided to look into buying the first official game based off him off of Steam. I was going to wait until the 3DS release, but I realized I screwed up when I got my 2DS and I ma

My Top 10 Favorite Consoles

Today, I'm going to do something a little different. I've been in a Top 10 mood lately, so... ye.   Anyway, as the title suggests, this is my Top 10 Favorite Consoles. Self-explanatory. Buuuut, I'm going to place a couple rules regarding the list.   -I have to play more than 3 games from the console, whether it be via emulation, ports of the games, or some other random way, to place the console. As much as I want to put game consoles like the Wii U and Sega Saturn, I've only played a demo of

Star Fox: SNES Review (1993)

Star Fox is another popular SNES game, and is mainly known by it's use of the Super FX chip, a chip inside the cartridge that renders polygons, and running them smoother than a cartridge without it. But, looking back at it, did it live up to it's hype?   This review comes from the opinions of the poster himself. This does not reflect the opinions of the rest of the gaming community.   Plot: After being banned from it, Andross has declared war on Corneria and has unleashed his army to wreak

Where are you going to find Donkey Kong Country? Not on Sega. Not on 32X Adapters Not on CD-Rom Not on Playstation Not on Xbox Not on Playstation 4 Not on Xbox One Not on Steam Not on Origin It's Only for Super NES. And Gameboy Color. And Gameboy Advance.

E.T. The Extraterrestrial: Atari 2600 Review (1982)

Yes, this early in my reviews, I'm going to get into this. GG m8s.   Anyway, ET is a pretty infamous game on the Atari 2600. And for obvious reasons. Many people's expectations were apparantely incredibly high for two games coming out on the Atari 2600. One of them was a port of the arcade game Pac-Man, and one a game based on the hit Steven Spielberg movie, ET: The Extraterrestrial... and they both disappointed the crap out of everyone. Pac-Man for being a flickery, glitchy mess of a port, an

Well, after the month of Mario, time to go back to other random reviews. This time on another system, the Nintendo 2DS! I recently got it for Christmas, and after about 5 months, how's it going?

Super Mario World: SNES/GBA Review (1991)

Welp, today's my Birthday. Thanks to anyone who sends me Birthday wishes n stoof.   But, for my Birthday, time to review the game that pretty much got me into gaming as a whole, that being Super Mario World for the Super Nintendo and Gameboy Advance. As Nintendo was shifting from the NES to the new 16-bit SNES, they felt it was a good idea to use their #1 Italian Plumber and make a launch title for the SNES, making.. Super Mario Bros 4, but eventually changed to Super Mario World. Did they do

Super Mario Bros. 3: NES/SNES/GBA Review (1990)

Now that the whole "Super Mario sequel" fiasco was over, it was time for the third Mario game. It was made and released in Japan in 1988, but was first revealed in a mediocre movie called "The Wizard" in 1989 and officially released in 1990, and has since been met with glowing praise, with many stating it's one of if not the best Mario game to date. Does it deserve that praise? Let's find out.   This review comes from the opinions of the poster himself. This does not reflect the opinions of th

Super Mario Bros 2 US/Doki Doki Panic: NES/SNES/GBA Review (1988)

As Super Mario Bros 3 was being made, Nintendo felt it was about time to bring a Super Mario Bros. sequel to the US. However, Lost Levels was out of the question, as they felt the difficulty would turn many Americans away from the game. So, they decided to reskin one game they made exclusive to Japan, updated the graphics and music a bit, and released it as Super Mario Bros 2 in the United States. Was it any good?

Super Mario Bros 2 JP/Lost Levels: Famicom/SNES Review (1986)

Despite the joke review on Wednesday and yesterday's actual review, reviews from now until the end of MLP Season 5 will be on Friday as opposed to Saturday, as I will also be making "First Impression" reviews on the new MLP episodes. However, Sunday TV will continue to be on Sunday. In fact, I plan to make one on Easter so.. yey.   Anyway, after Super Mario Bros helped make the NES, and video games in general, even more popular, they figured it was a good idea to make a sequel to the original

Super Mario Bros.: NES/SNES/GBC Review (1985)

Ever since I started gaming in general, I've been a bit of a Mario fan. Although it does seem to be not on the same tier as it was, I still enjoy the original games, from the first game to Sunshine, very much, and even then, I can still have fun with the NSMB, Super Mario 3D Land and Super Mario Galaxy games.So, this month, I'm going to be doing a month of Mario, covering the first game, Super Mario Bros, to Super Mario World, and maybe Super Mario 64 at the very end. And considering how the plo
