WCW vs. n.W.o. World Tour (N64) Review

WCW vs nWo World Tour

The Wrestling Game Rundown finally reaches the N64 AKI Engine games, my personal choice for the “Golden Age” of wrestling games. WCW vs. n.W.o. World Tour blew me away back when I first got it, it was a more solid and impactful feeling “Vs. The World” but with four people in the ring!

Super Smash Bros. (N64) Review

Super Smash Bros

Our countdown to Smash Ultimate reaches single digits as we arrive at the game that started it all as our rep. for the Earthbound franchise (thanks to having never played the series, and certainly not having the time right now…) How does the original hold up now, compared to the (currently) three sequels its spawned, and how was it back in the day? Let’s take a look!
