In a follow up to my Ninja Gaiden Same Name, Different Game spectacular, it’s Ninja Gaiden Shadow! A weird little Game Boy game that kind of is, kind of isn’t Ninja Gaiden.
The first console I ever owned was a hand-me-down Atari 2600 given to us by an aunt. It only had three games that I can remember: Combat, my personal favorite AstroBlast, and then the infamous Atari hit Space Invaders. The problem was, at 4-5 years old, I…

Sometimes in life, you just have to learn to follow where the hands point you.
Time for some Lost Episode action! We originally recorded a set of “Game Challenge” episodes for Ms. Pac-Man, but realized after the fact that the recording messed up, and cut off part of the screen. But the episodes are just too good otherwise to leave on the…
Last week, I started to piece together my choices for what I think should be on the SNES Classic Mini, listing the first fifteen games of what I believe should be a 30 game library. Read More
So now it’s time to dive into another part of what I’ve privately dubbed “The Harold Trilogy”. Last time on the Sega Genesis, Harold played one of his “childhood favorites”, Global Gladiators, and it was…certainly an experience. And NOW he’s back with another of his Genesis favorites,…

I’m a big shoot-’em-up fan, and it’s been a minute since I covered one, so what better time to take a look at Gradius III on the SNES and in the arcade!
Could Street Racer be the alternative to Super Mario Kart that you’ve never heard of? This SNES racing game combines the racing of Nintendo’s racer, the violence of Road Rash, and the presentation of Capcom’s Street Racer, to make an interesting arcade racer. Read More

This is a satire video of a serious subject intended for entertainment purposes, specifically addressing the recent terror attack in St. Petersburg.
If you are easily offended or feel as though humor after a tragic event can sometimes be “too soon,” please skip this video.
And yes, it is gaming-related.
Hard to believe, but Capcom once tried to port Street Fighter II to the humble Nintendo Game Boy. This review will tell you how it compares to the arcade original, and if this game’s Super Game Boy enhancements are worth using! Read More
Now the stuff officially hits the fan. Life in the 90s was no joke. Especially in the Big City, with all sorts of hoodlums and jerkass dogs, throwing trash and things at you at every single turn. The game turns into an almost unreasonable obstacle course, and…

Here is a video game cover tune by a great artist I discovered years ago, Ryan8bit! This song is called “Can’t Escape the Sorrow”, a cover of Edward’s theme from (in my humble opinion) one of the greatest gaming soundtracks of all time, from my personal favorite…
There’s nothing more nostalgic than video game commercials, and here are some of those ads that have embedded themselves into my brain and have refused to budge over the years! Read More
Haunted forests are some serious stuff. Giant bees, annoying bats, spooky trees, and even an evil cave!
Greetings and salutations! As some of you know, I have a saturday morning/weekday Cartoon retrospective/review show on youtube called the Saturday Morning Breakfast Mix honoring those great cartoons that made our childhood amazing. The world of video games are no different when it comes to cartoons being made…
Just in time for Wrestlemania Weekend, in the interest of fairness, I take the “Wrestlemania Arcade” challenge myself, and since Corey already played my FAVORITE wrestler, The Undertaker, I play my SECOND fav. wrestler of all time, Bret “The Hitman” Hart. *SPOILER* The trick was, after we…
It’s that time of year. “The Radiant” Joey Pink is back on Same Name, Different Game because it’s Wrestlemania Weekend, don’t you know. And this time out, it’s PS1 vs. N64 (with a little Game Boy thrown in) as he looks at WWF War Zone.
If you know me, I’m quite a little calendar when it comes to classic game events, especially to ones from the games that I love the most. Punch-Out!! (the one with Mike Tyson) was one of my favs on the NES. Hey, by the way, what’s with the…
Part 2 of Tiny Toons is live, and even though Corey is distracting me with ridiculous (and gross) talk, the game is already starting to get a bit…loony.
