Throwback Bit Thursday: The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask

The late 90s were the most magical years that I experienced as a gamer. The 3-D era was fresh and exciting.

The Legend of Zelda is Nintendo’s golden franchise, and it is one that is rich in lore, and ambiguity. The fact that Link is […]

Throwback Bit Thursday: Turok: Dinosaur Hunter

  The Nintendo 64 was the first home console capable of delivering great First Person Shooting experiences. While the PlayStation (and Sega Saturn) would have some  first person shooters, by comparison, most (if not all) were subpar when stacked against the games that the Nintendo 64 was running in that particular genre. The Nintendo 64 […]

Throwback Bit Thursday: WCW/NWO Revenge

  Ah, 1998, my freshman year of High School. What good time it was for a 13-14 year old teenager to be alive. 3-D gaming was still in its infancy, making every new 3-D game on the Nintendo 64 an excitable prospect (even pedestrian games were interesting at the time). It was a magical time […]

Throwback Bit Thursday: Star Wars: Shadows of the Empire (N64)

Star Wars: Shadows of the Empire is a wonderful, but flawed game. This is how I have always perceived the title, which I must admit, I hold dear to my heart ’till this day’. The game received mixed critical reception in 96-97 by printed Magazines. A 7.8/10 in Electronic Gaming Monthly wasn’t a necessarily a […]

Throwback Bit Thursday: Castlevania (64) A Beloved and Underrated Game

The year was 1999, and while the Nintendo 64 wasn’t doing so hot in terms of sales in contrast to Sony’s PS1. However, the system wasn’t lacking in high quality games. The N64 was coming of a huge year (1998) with The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time shredding every possible standard imaginable in terms […]

The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time (N64/GC) Review

  Nothing in this world is perfect; everything that was or is has flaws. It’s the law of nature; it’s the law of life. This law also applies to videogames because humans who are hindered by those laws create them. That being said, something very special, in fact, something quite extraordinary (some would say nothing […]

The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask (N64/GC) Review

While the 16 bit era came and went with only one Zelda title, the legendary A Link to the Past, the 32-64 bit era was a bit kinder to Zelda fans as it featured two great Zelda titles. One of them was of course (Arguably) the greatest game of all time Ocarina of Time in […]
