LETS DO A POLL

With Halloween approaching ever so close, I have been thinking about different HORROR games that really scared me besides the obvious games like SILENT HILL and RESIDENT EVIL. Those games are staples in the Horror community and deserve to be there. ALRIGHT HERE WE GO!

Which HORROR game scared you the most?

1. FATAL FRAME

2. SIREN

3. CLOCK TOWER

4. SLENDER MAN: THE ARRIVAL

5. SCP-86

6. THE EVIL WITHIN

7. DEAD SPACE

8. ALONE IN THE DARK

9. CALL OF CTHULHU: DARK CORNERS OF THE EARTH

10. KUON

I WANT TO HERE FROM YOU! If you don’t see the game that scared you the most on this list then go ahead and put it in the comments below! I am always up for a good scary game and I am wanting to here from you!!

 

Something to dig up..

You know what I haven’t heard about in a long time and that is ROBOCOP. I loved all of the movies, cartoons and even the video games! So I think I will take some time out and try to find anything I can related to ROBOCOP. I feel as though the best ROBOCOP game was ROBOCOP VS THE TERMINATOR and the hardest one of them all was ROBOCOP 3 for SNES and GENESIS.

So I think I will dig up anything I can for at least video games and other media related items.

Scoring System for Atari 2600-7800

You know I can’t really seem to score and Atari game with a number rating, it seems to harsh and for the matter hard. For an Atari game on a 2600, the controls are basic you have one button and a joystick. Some games require you to use the paddle controller otherwise, they are simply controls and really don’t need to be reviewed unless noted. Graphics for these games only start to get better (I mean upgrade) when we get to high end console such as the LYNX and JAGUAR.

What I am trying to say is here is a simple rating system for any and all Atari 2600-7800 games.

  1. BAD– This game is awful and should be thrown back into the dungeon where it came from.
  2. HMM– the game is neither good or bad its just there to exist
  3. OK– The game has some interesting quality to it
  4. GOOD– You leave beating this game with a sense of accomplishment but you know that you can’t really beat an Atari game or can you…
  5. GREAT– You can play this game over and over and feel good knowing that you have a great game on you hands.
  6. AMAZING– The best of the best video games belong here but is there an Atari game worth this score?

Now for any games above 7800 such as LYNX and JAGUAR, I will be using a Number scoring system.

The First Reviews are In For ATARI Month

Yes I know that I am a little late getting Atari Month going and believe me I am trying to get back into reviewing games. Alright enough about me and my petty things lets get started!!

First up is ADVENTURE for the Atari 2600 come find out if the adventure is really worth going on!

And for the Second is BREAKOUT for the Atari 2600. Can you break all the bricks in this addictive arcade classic!

Is there an Atari game that you want me to review? Don’t fret! All this month is Atari and I am doing random games from various Atari Consoles! So if you don’t see the game that you wanted reviewed on here go ahead and give me a shout out on the Facebook page, leave a tweet on Twitter or leave me comment below and I will do my best to get it on here!!

Okay time to get back on track!

I have been gone for the longest time because well lets face it, I have been lazy. We have all been there. There have been a few things that made a turn for the worst but things are looking a lot better now. The last four months not posting anything has been on my mind but with school, getting into the MLT program and so forth things have gotten pretty crazy. Now it is time to take a step back and look at what made me happy, what I strive to do. Well I want people to come to this site to take a look at honest reviews for every video game possible ( shooting for every game here). I want people to remember the games of their past or maybe find an obscure game that they have never heard of! Its all going to be right here!

So with out further to do I will be making changes here, no longer will there be a Movies Category, I just don’t have time to do reviews on them and that could be something that could be implemented later on. And there will be more but I don’t want to spill to much for everyone!

Now the awesome part! August is just around the corner and starting in August it will be ATARI MONTH! Expect to see loads of ATARI games from the 2600-7800, Jaguar and Lynx! Yes that’s right the granddaddy of all video game system’s depending on who you are asking (lets not get technical). But the question remains….how do you review an Atari game especially on the 2600? We will just have to find out….

Been awhile… So I have gotten into Gunpla…

I have been building Mobile Suit Gundams for awhile now and really didn’t think that it was a hobby that most people enjoyed. I was wrong, oh so wrong! Not only are there video games based off of Gunpla but there is a massive fan base for it as well! I may have been living in the dark ages for a bit but whoa I think that this one is a decent start as any…

Awesome Update

So I have finally got around to making a sub-page for Sega Genesis and it is now under the CONSOLE SECTION. I have released an interesting first review for it, ALIEN SOLDIER for the SEGA CHANNEL!!! Come check it out at

Venom Trailer 2 Released!

Finally the Symbiote revealed…

Last night the new trailer for Venom came out and a lot of people are excited. Finally we get to see what Sony Entertainment forget to give us in the first trailer: The Symbiote.

Personally I am excited for Venom and looks even better then the first trailer put out. Maybe there is a glimmer of hope for the movie yet.

Venom releases on October 4th 2018 in theaters everywhere.
