Twin Galaxies and Cheating Historical Gamers? – The Witch Hunt is On!

Twin Galaxies has been a hot topic that has recently been all over the Internet, but not because of people having fun and setting scores on their favorite games. Ohhhh no….. It’s because the newer regime is going through and scrubbing the database of historical records that are deemed impossible or unethical from a lot of classic older players.

Sonic Generations – PS3 / Xbox 360 (vgMastersClub Review Rewind)

Spook-o’-tron – NES Homebrew Review

Spook-o’-tron is an arcade-style NES game that takes inspiration from the classic Robotron: 2084. The game is a twin stick shooter that features some insane speed and action. There are so many sprites on the screen and you barely see any flicker. Only occasionally did I see slowdown, which was typically near the beginning and I used it to formulate strategies on the fly before the game intensified. The question is, does the game hold up against all the classic NES titles that came before it? Let’s find out!
