Obligatory new post so this place doesn’t appear dead

…even though it pretty much is. Original post from early July 4th: Just writing this cause I’m going to Anime Expo to help out with STG Weekly, and I gave out this URL, so I figured something needed to be here. If you’re dropping by after seeing us at AX, hope you enjoyed the panel […]

EA Sports on the Midway

EA bought the NBA JAM and NFL Blitz licenses a while back and recently came out with new versions to bring these great franchises back to glory. ONE PROBLEM: BLITZ IS SLIGHTLY LESS HORRIBLE: For reference the original controls were: NBA JAM Offense Defense A Turbo Turbo B Shoot Block C Pass Steal NFL Blitz […]

Caravan mode is another name for time attack mode. For the Hudson tours (where it got the name) as well as […]

The most blatant caseof false advertising sinceThe Never Ending Story

…actually this is likely the last part of the upgrade saga. While reviewing my last post this snippet stuck out: The gameplay itself isn’t really enjoyable or redeeming in any way, you’re just playing for the arbitrary rewards.
