Backlog Quest: Day 25 – Driver: Renegade – Serious road rage

Dear Journal, Today I really let loose with the road rage. Driver: Renegade was released about the same time as Driver: San Francisco but it is not the mobile release equivalent.  Rather, the game takes place between the events of Driver and Driver 2, where John Tanner free from the restraints of being a cop, finds work cleaning up New […]

Backlog Quest: Day 20 – Zoo Resort – Run a zoo by taking photos?

Dear Journal, Today I inherited a zoo and took a bunch of photos. Zoo Resort screams shovelware.  Developed for the 3DS by Ubisoft, the game’s whole premise basically surrounds taking photos of the animals in your pretend zoo.  Not only does the premise not sound all that impressive, but the fact that the game came out almost immediately after the […]

Backlog Quest: Day 18 – Pilotwings Resort

Dear Journal, Today I visited the weirdest resort ever, where I was forced to perform complex maneuvers in various aircraft rather than just relax. Seriously, what kind of resort gives you a jetpack and has you on a timed course with only a couple of minutes training? All joking aside, Pilotwings Resort marks a return to one of Nintendo’s classic […]

Review: Theatrhythm – Up jumped the boogie? To the theatrhythm of the boogie, the beat?

There’s not a gamer in the world who doesn’t know what “Final Fantasy” is.  There’s the long-time fans who’ve played through every single game — including the misnumbered ones.  There’s the fans who have their absolute favorite and swear by it — “Final Fantasy VII” is usually the one considered to be the Holy Grail of the franchise.  There’s even […]

Backlog Quest: Day 8 – Combat of Giants: Dinosaurs 3D – Let’s get ready to snore!

Dear Journal, Today I was a T-Rex fighting a Stegosaurs and was honestly, genuinely bored. It quickly seems like most of the titles coming through the pipeline in this quest to rid my backlog of… well my backlog are just taking mediocre to a whole new level.  Maybe, somewhere in my subconscious I knew this and this is part of […]

Backlog Quest: Day 2 – Centipede: Infestation – C’mon you apes! You wanna live forever?

Dear Journal, Today I fought a giant centipede for control of a garden. Centipede is pretty much what you would call a classic.  The game has been around forever and has existed in almost as many forms as there are legs on a giant centipede.  So a “true reboot” of the franchise sounded interesting, and the bright colorful graphics of […]

Backlog Quest: Day 0 – The Adventure Begins

Dear Journal, Today I realized I have a problem. How did this all begin anyway?  I suppose I have Cheap Ass Gamer to blame, at least in part.  At what point does a deal on a video game literally become so good that you can’t resist it?  Well, apparently, for me that point doesn’t take much. I mean, how did […]

A first hand look at the Pokemon Battle Royale art show

People, hey, seriously, look at this. This is awesome. Now, I won’t say that I’m an avid art fan, nor would I say that I don’t have a level of respect for it.  That said, it’s rare that something like the opening of an art gallery can tear me away from Netflix or a cold beer.  Apparently though, all it […]

Dr. Geek: The Next Generation of Video Game Consoles

What was the first video game console system you played on?  Was it a PlayStation 2?  A Sega Dreamcast?  A Super Nintendo Entertainment System?  An Atari 2600?  A Magnavox Odyssey? In 1972, Magnavox released the Odyssey as the first computer system built to connect to a television set in order to allow people to play digital games in the comfort […]
