Richard presents: Let's play Streets of Rage Remake (SOR2 Route) Stage 2

Bridges! Motorcycles! Bare chested men kicking things! All of this and more can be found in stage 2. We get two new enemy types in this level, plus a dude wearing a jetpack. Enjoy!

Richard presents: Let's play Streets of Rage Remake (SOR2 Route) Stage 1

It's the Streets of Rage Remake! A wonderful fan-made tribute to the classic brawlers on the Sega Genesis, the remake is a project that deserves some attention, which I am hoping to give to it. I'm playing through the Streets of Rage 2 route, and naturally starting off with Stage 1. Enjoy!

Amidst the sea of near indistinguishable first- and third-person shooters, MMOs and MMO shooters at PAX East, I found it somewhat ironic that two particular titles that stood out to me where both remakes of classic games: XCOM: Enemy Unknown and Double Dragon Neon.

Binary Domain, iOS vs console and The Walking Dead

I finally made time in my schedule to sit down with Sega's Binary Domain, and even though I've had my eye on it since last year, the end result ended up being even better than expected.

Relive the arcade's glory days in Lincoln Ruchti's documentary Chasing Ghosts

Chasing Ghosts: Beyond the Arcade Image

Lincoln Ruchti's Chasing Ghosts: Beyond the Arcade takes us back to a time when the country was gripped in the throes of a serious case of Pac-Man Fever and chronicles not only Twin Galaxies' Official Scorekeeper Walter Day, but the pimply-faced teenagers who were the kings of the arcade. It is at once a fascinating look into a relatively new medium's (videogaming is only set to turn 40 this year) past and an examination of how these men's lives were influenced by their passions.

The Binding of Isaac Review

Birth is Repetition

Frosty
