The game picks up two years after the events of Ghostbusters II. The museum is about to unveil a new Gozer exhibit, (really? Gozer? the museum curator should be fired) when a wave of paranormal energy is unleashed, causing mayhem throughout New York.

David Crane, creator of the legendary Pitfall!, brings us the unique game about a boy and his faithful pet. A shape-shifting, jellybean eating, alien blob. Who didn’t have one of those as a kid? It seems there’s trouble on Blobert’s home planet and it’s up to our titular duo to stop it.

Kung Fu is one of those games that every gamer must own. It is a crucial part of the library, much as scotch is for a connoisseur of fine liquors. Although the story may be simple and the game is quick, the effect is everlasting.

Road Rash is one of those games that will forever be beloved by everyone as a true gem of its day. The perfect blend of racing and violence, Road Rash pushed the proverbial envelope for what a racing game can offer. Set in the grunge days of the early-mid 90’s, this game reflects counterculture, subculture, and the periods’ unwillingness to conform.

When the Monster in My Pocket toys came out in the early 90s, I should have been the target audience, but somehow I missed out. Too busy playing with my Thundercats I guess.

Rayman 2: The Great Escape is one of the best platform games ever made. It’s fun from start to finish. The best way I can sum up this game is, they just don’t make ’em like this anymore.

Ecco is the perfect blend of Flipper and McGuyver – he’s smart, determined, selfless, and no one messes with his family without retribution. Unfortunately our friendly aquatic mammal suffers from poor controls, a lack of direction, annoying side missions, and boundless squeals of death.

A thug socks your girl in the belly, throws her over his shoulder, and takes off. So begins one of the most popular games to ever come out for the NES.

Video games are especially suited for playing while inebriated over other drunken activities for a myriad of reasons: avoiding a DUI while wiping the club-girl sweat off your teeth and delaying your friends from puking in the back seat of your car being one of them (notice how I say ‘delaying’ because we all know it’s inevitable).

Extreme difficulty in video games seems to have gone the way of the dodo. Extra hard games are about as popular as a fat kid in gym class these days. Is this an inevitable product of the gaming evolution? Do we really need games to be super challenging or are we just nostalgic?

Good artists borrow, great artists steal. This quote by Picasso is reflected in every form of artistic expression be it fine art, literature, or video game. While no one author can lay claim to the concept of humanity rescuing the galaxy from an alien overlord intent on extinguishing all life, there are certain elements of Bioware’s epic sci-fi RPG Mass Effect that hint towards being begged, borrowed, or stolen.

In a world gone mad (lowered voice) a couple of small town guys living in two disparate and not very small towns set out to review video games like it’s nobody’s business. Coming soon to a computer screen near you, VIDGAMA!
