Wario Land: Super Mario Land 3 is an excellent game. The level design never gets old and there is a decent amount of challenge when trying to find all the treasure chests and to get the best ending. There are some excellent game play choices and abilities that have been introduced that have remained with the Wario Land series.

My Lunch in Gaming #2: Retro City Rampage DX (Switch)

Retro City Rampage DX seems to take every advantage to reference, well, anything. I am still very early in the game and I have already had a Duck Hunt, Mortal Kombat II, and a Mario Bros. references (all excellent).Retro City Rampage DX’s introduction to gameplay mechanics moves a little fast early on. What I mean is a lot is introduced to you very quickly. You are tasked with helping rob a ba...

My Lunch in Gaming #2: Retro City Rampage DX (Switch)

I love portable gaming. So I play video games everywhere I can, including while at work. What follows are my thoughts for FEB/5/2018-FEB/9/2018 while playing Retro City Rampage DX during My Lunch in Gaming.   FEB/5/2018 On my way to my hideout I ran over a bunch of people (on accident?) while driving and earned an Achievement.

My Lunch in Gaming: The End Is Nigh (Switch)

As stated my thumbs hurt and my hands are sweaty. I guess that is expected from a game like this. Having never played Super Meat Boy I feel like I did pretty well with this game so far. I really like the artistic style of the game, the controls are very tight, and the music/sound effects are great. As my lunch break comes to an end I would totally recommend The End Is Nigh. It is a great game for ...

My Lunch in Gaming: The End Is Nigh (Switch)

Retro Review – Super Mario Land 2: 6 Golden Coins (Game Boy)

Super Mario Land 2 is an excellent portable Mario game. It does a great job of re-using some of the familiar enemies/power-ups/items while introducing a bunch of new things, and Wario, to the series. The game is a little on the short side, it is only 32 levels long, but this also adds to the enjoyment of the game. Unlike Super Mario Land before it, where you had to play through the entire game in ...

Retro Review – Geometry Wars Galaxies (DS)

This game will make your thumbs hurt, but in a good way. The original Geometry Wars: Retro Evolved was made to be used with two sticks and not a D-Pad and buttons. But Geometry Wars Galaxies works very well on a DS. I did re-play Gemetry Wars Galaxies on my 3DS. One of the nice things about playing on this system rather than the original DS is that you can use the control stick to move your ship. ...

Retro Review – Geometry Wars Galaxies (DS)

Geometry Wars Galaxies is a twin stick multi-direction shooter where the point of the game is to live as long as you can while trying to get the highest score possible. This is done by shooting the never-ending onslaught of enemies that the game continues to throw at you. You start the game by entering a solar system that is made up of a number of planets. Each planet is a different level with a d...
