NES: Star Wars

Star Wars just seems like it would be the perfect series to make video games for yet for some reason there have been many failures along the way. While this game is far from a failure, I still can‟t help but be a little disappointed by it. One of the problems that the...

Duke Nukem 3D

When you think of Duke Nukem, you might think of actors like Arnold "Terminator" Schwarzenegger or Dolph "Ivan Drago" Lundgren. The truth is these guys don‘t have any thing on Duke. Sporting a red tank top, blue jeans, a blonde crew cut, black shades, a cigar clutched...
