Random Game Wednesdays: Super Bomberman R (Nintendo Switch)

Like many other Switch owners, Super Bomberman R was one of the first games I got for the console. It’s easy to see why too. Other than The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, There wasn’t really a whole lot available at launch. Bomberman was at least a classic IP, and one that hadn’t seen a proper release in many years. It’s been a few months now, how does the game stack up? Continue reading

Random Game Wednesdays: Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor

I primarily use my Random Game Wednesdays feature to showcase older games. It’s a good excuse to go back and look at all the games that are sitting in my collection. But, it’s not exclusively meant to be that. So, I thought it would be fun to look at my Xbox One library again, like I did for Mortal Kombat X. This time, the random number generator gave me the highly acclaimed 2014 release, Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor.  Continue reading

Random Game Wednesdays: Asteroids (Atari Flashback Classics Vol. 2)

I’ve gotten a lot of use out of the first Atari Flashback Classics collection. It opened up fifty games that I normally would not be able to easily get screenshots of, not without investing in special equipment anyway. With that in mind, picking up the second collection was a no-brainer. This week, the random number generator gave me a “1”, which means I played the arcade version of Asteroids. Continue reading

Random Game Wednesdays: Garry Kitchen’s Super Battletank: War In The Gulf (SNES)

Sometimes when going through my old games, I find ones that not only have I never played before, but I’m not even sure where they came from. This is the case with this week’s game, Garry Kitchen’s Super Battletank: War In The Gulf. I’ve never played this game before in my life. There’s no Goodwill price tag, which is pretty common in old games in my collection that I’ve never played. My only clue is a faint “2.99” written in marker on the back. Continue reading

Random Game Wednesdays: Quadrun (Atari Flashback Classics Vol. 1)

I like to think that I’m pretty good at being able to just pick up and play a video game. And I don’t think that’s a very special trait. If you’re reading a blog dedicated to video games, you can probably do that too. Just look at the screen, push the buttons a couple times to see what they do, and off you go. That was not the case for me when trying out Quadrun today. Continue reading

Random Game Wednesdays: Bionic Commando (NES)

Bionic Commando is one of those games that despite not being super well known, has a very loud and passionate following. I did not grow up playing it. Instead, I was introduced to the series through the remake/reboot, Bionic Commando: Rearmed and the under appreciated Bionic Commando for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. I loved those games, infamous plot twist and all, but how does the original game fare these days? Continue reading
