Cardinal Quest: Return of Rogue

It has gone by many names … It started off as Adventure, Telegard, Moria, Hack, Rogue … then came games like Temple of Apshai, Sword of Fargoal, Mystery Dungeon, Ultima … and in recent times it has gone by the name of Shiren the Wanderer, Pokemon Mystery Dungeon, Chocobo’s Dungeon 2 and even (to a…

Shine Runner: $1 Gaming Done Right

Rarely does a mobile game inspire me to write a review. Let’s be honest; mobile gaming isn’t a gourmet meal; it’s a snack. Usually a sweet, rich snack that never quite tides you over until dinner – and usually makes you a bit sick to your stomach – but it’s cheap (or free) and is…

Thor: God of Thunder (3DS)

As the latest incarnations of super heroes movies go, Thor wasn’t the worst or best entry thrown into the hat.  Better than Captain America, worse than Iron Man but at least Chris Hemsworth was more or less likable and despite all the CGI – you always had Natalie Portman to look at.  In the end,…

Samsung Galaxy Nexus 4G LTE Phone Review

On December 15th, there were two types of people in the world; ones that had never even HEARD of the Samsung Galaxy Nexus phone and ones that were ready to burn down the nearest Verizon store if there were any other delays in releasing this device. The consumer’s anger toward Verizon’s handling (or mishandling) of…

The Six Million Dollar Man DVD Box Set

The late 70s and early 80s were popular times for superhero TV shows.  We had it all;  Wonder Woman, The Incredible Hulk, a live action Spider-Man – and of course The Six Million Dollar Man and The Bionic Woman. History The Six Million Dollar Man (SMDM from now on) started off as a TV movie…

Pac-Man & Galaga Dimensions (3DS)

Namco has a lot of video gaming properties out there.  However, Pac-Man and Galaga have obviously been Namco’s biggest money makers because we continue to see the games released again and again – for one system or another.  We’ve had the games in “TV controller” form, Xbox Live renditions and of course in portable and mobile formats as well.…

The Bionic Woman Season 2 (DVD)

History Let’s face it – The Bionic Woman (TBW) never got the love that The Six Million Dollar Man (SMDM) received.  Oh sure, fans loved the character so much that they letter-bombed the TV studio demanding her resurrection when she was killed off in her debut on SMDM and the show ran a healthy three…

Pirates of the Caribbean – The Video Game (3DS)

Is anyone else getting tired of “Lego” themed games?  I mean, I understand the IP and I get what they are trying to do with it; making family friendly skinned platformer/adventure games using safe, bloodless, no-way-to-lose themes like Legos. I get it.  Maybe if we weren’t whoring version after version in the SAME IP space…

Super Monkey Ball 3D (3DS)

Let’s face it–there are a ton of Super Monkey Ball games out there for even console, handheld, and mobile device.  And although controls have included touch screens, controller-tilt, device-tilt, and even full-body balance board tilt, the original analog stick control of the original games on GameCube and PS2 were arguably never matched by these newer…

Rabbids Travel in Time 3D (3DS)

I love Rabbids.  I have since their debut on the Nintendo Wii so many years ago.  They are a property I would have expected to go farther – but they do have their own line of toys and accessories; everything from action figures to Wii controller chargers.  They are cute, funny and nothing beats pumping…
