CHAPTER 3: RENTING

There’s a scene in the Kevin Smith film Clerks where Randal Graves, a clerk at a mom and pop video store, goes to a Blockbuster-esque video store called Big Choice video to rent a movie – there’s a reason, you just have to see the film if you haven’t. Upon seeing the sheer amount of…

REVIEW: DUCKTALES 2 (NES/PS4/GAME BOY)

NOTE: Not played on the original NES, but on the PS4 version from the Disney Afternoon Collection. Capcom is no stranger to sequels: Mega Man had six entries alone on the NES and your head would probably start spinning trying to recall all the sequels, spin-offs, remasters and adjective themed updates for the Street Fighter franchise.

TOP 10: BEST NON-ARKHAM BATMAN GAMES

June is here and we’re a just a few measly weeks from the release of Rocksteady and WB Games closing chapter in the Arkham saga: Batman: Arkham Knight. Over the past year to keep my mind off of the constant delays this game has undergone in the road to becoming the best possible product it can be, I’ve…
