Live A Live – Review

I would bet that every gamer has at least one blind spot in terms of influential games that they have either missed or just never got around to playing. Maybe, it’s several games you missed, multiple protagonists that you never got a chance to connect with. In the case of

Capcom Fighting Collection – Review

Back in the 90s when arcades around the world were still booming, there was a highly likely chance every arcade goer played one of Capcom’s many coin-operated machines scattered around not just in arcades, but also at shopping centres, cinemas, convenience stores, and more. While 1987’s ‘Street Fighter’ was the

Final Vendetta – Review

Back in the 80s and 90s, the beat ’em up genre was one of the pioneers of the arcade scene, with classics such as Double Dragon, Final Fight, and Streets of Rage just to name a few. They brought something unique to the arcades where instead of people playing solo

The Quarry (PC) – Review

The year was 1992. We had just purchased a new, powerful PC for the household. It was a 486DX2-66 with 8mb RAM, 540mb Hard Drive, and a dual-speed CD-ROM. It was on this PC that I got my first taste of an interactive FMV (Full Motion Video) game. The game

Kao The Kangaroo – Review

I think somewhere in our storied gaming history, every one of us grew up with a favorite gaming mascot. Some stand-outs would have to be Crash Bandicoot, Sonic, Spyro, or Banjo Kazooie, while lesser, yet still formidable known heroes such as Gex or Croc, made a short but sweet appearance

Winter Ember – Review

When I think of a good old fashion stealth game, I think of a hooded figure with a blade as sharp as his skill set. Throw them into a Victorian-esque world with a classic revenge tale with nothing left to lose and you will have painted the picture for Sky
