LGR – Rise of the Triad – DOS PC Game Review

[MIDI rock music] [typing] Looking back at awesome first-person shooters from the early-to-mid-’90s, several come to mind immediately. Wolfenstein 3D. Doom. Duke Nukem 3D. Tek War.

Paper Mario 64 Review

Paper Mario showed us how innovative Nintendo can be when it comes to their preeminent character: After Mario 64 came out to stellar reviews, the new direction that Super Mario games were to take became very clear.

[electronic version of “Little Drummer Boy”] [fizz, sip] Aahhh! [typing] During the 1990s, there was a widespread fascination with KILLING Barney the Dinosaur.

And one such example of this comes

Fallout 76 Review

(grunting) (gunfire) – [Brandin] After more than 50 hours plundering the irradiated wasteland of Fallout 76, the greatest mystery still lingering is who this mutated take on Fallout is intended for. Like many of Vault-Tec’s underground bunkers, Bethesda’s multiplayer riff on its post-nuclear RPG series is an experiment gone awry. There are bright spots entangled in this mass of frustratingly buggy and sometimes conflicting systems, but what fun I was able to salvage from the expansive but underpopulated West Virginia
