WCW Nitro (PS1) Review

WCW Nitro

It still amazes me that this game came out around the same time as the N64 classic I reviewed last time in the Wrestling Game Rundown, as the two games couldn’t be any different. Nitro plays like crap, looks like crap, and was far too enamoured with having small grainy videos play than actually creating a good game… or a half-decent game even. WCW vs. n.W.o World Tour on the other hand was all great gameplay, with good graphics (for the time) and a fun presentation. So, lets grit our teeth and dive headfirst into a game I only have bad memories of and was so relieved to have only rented out…

DW: Time War Series 3 -Fugitive in Time & The War Valeyard Review

DW Time War 3 P2

“The War Valeyard? Now you’re just being stupid!” was my initial reaction to this boxset, but then I thought about it, and with The Doctor not fighting the war, of course the Time Lords would be happy with an evil version of The Doctor, so the more I thought about it, the more I actually looked forward to the story seen here at the end of the set, and thankfully it didn’t disappoint! Let’s take a look!

Mobile Suit Gundam 0083: Stardust Memory Review

Gundam 0083 Stardust Memory

The last of the “classic” Universal Century OVAs, Stardust Memory takes place in between the original series and Zeta Gundam, doing an unnecessarily long and twisty version of events that led to the formation of the Titans group so prominently featured in the latter series. It also features a very interesting villain and a fun, if not always likeable, protagonist to face off against him. Let’s take a good look at this 13-Episode series…

Mega Man 8 (PS1) Review

Mega Man 8

We finally come back to my playthrough of the core Mega Man games and reach the infamous Mega Man 8. The series reaches the PS1 and gets an “upgrade” with FMV, voice “acting” and smoother animations, but generally the game seems far cheaper than its predecessors and it featured a stage so monumentally frustrating that I took a break from trying to complete it for about a month before returning… Let’s take a closer look…

DW: Memories of a Tyrant Review

DW Memories of a Tyrant

It’s been a long time since we got a new story featuring the Sixth Doctor and Peri (especially the “as seen on TV” versions) so if nothing else this story felt both fresh, in a way, and nostalgic. The central premise of punishing someone for crimes he can no longer remember is a genuinely interesting idea that was only partially explored, sadly. So let’s have a look at the story overall, shall we?

DW: The Legacy of Time Review

DW Legacy of Time

To celebrate 20 years of making Doctor Who audios, Big Finish released a special, roughly six-hour story titled “The Legacy of Time”, and now I’ve finally found the time to finish it, I can say it was a fun collection of stories, but was definitely just that. There wasn’t much of an over-arching plot, which is fine, it’s just different to what I was expecting. Let’s take a closer look!

Super Robot Wars V (PS4) Review

Super Robot Wars V

Have you been wondering why I haven’t been posting game reviews, specifically modern game reviews, recently? Well, I thought I’d finally give the Super Robot Wars series a proper go and imported the English language Asia version of the first PS4 game, V (as in the letter, not the roman numeral for five…) The little “that would be fun” idea ended up absorbing nearly three months of my gaming time… Don’t get me wrong, I enjoyed every second of it, and have already made plans to import the next in the series when the gaming world goes quiet again, but yeah… this was a marathon rather than a sprint, that’s for sure! Let’s take a look…
