I take a break from horror related games this week to play a particularly infuriating game from my childhood, Karate Kid for the Nintendo Entertainment System.  Along the way I find my inner fly catcher and maybe make piece with this demon from my past.  Maybe...

I try to use my hatefire to exact revenge on those who've wronged me while playing "Darkman" for the NES.  I am not very successful.

In honor of the release of "Fury Road", I attempt to make some sense out of "Mad Max" for the Nintendo Entertainment System.  A game where you can run out of fuel before you even figure out what you're supposed to be doing.  Oh, and don't forget about the bumper cars.  

I take a trip down someone else's memory lane with 1992's "Swamp Thing" for the Nintendo Entertainment System.  And lucky for you, it won't take my Game Genie codes. So get ready to see me die.

Watch me make heads or tails (or is it lightbulbs or TNT) of 1989's "Fester's Quest" for the NES, ranked the 73rd worst game ever made by GamesRadar. This god damn game...

Stare into the dark soul of the tempura shrimp, IF YOU DARE.

In Part 2 of my Shadowgate Let's Play, we're whittling our way through the halls of Castle Shadowgate.  We meet some elementals, we find some hidden rooms and run into a monster or two.  It's a lot of fun!  As the mystery deepens, so does the castle.

Released on August 21st this year, Shadowgate is a modern day remake of a 1989 NES Classic!

Will this nostalgia for our childhood's never end? I'm guessing no, since that would require actually growing up. Still, as the constant referencing to old forms of media continues, one has to grow weary of it after a while.
