Retro Monday – U.N. Squadron

Hi everyone. I’m here to let you know what I thought of U.N. Squadron after a week or so’s break. It was made by Capcom and was originally an arcade game that came out in 1989. It was later released on consoles, and the version I’m playing was released on the SNES in 1991 (and 1992 in …

The 7 commandments of tackling the pile of shame

Deal with the devil As  I mentioned in my previous post, I intend to limit my gaming library to just eight games for one year. This is to fully explore the games I already own and to try to put the brakes on purchasing more games. After much consideration, I think this is going to …

Gekibo: Gekisha Boy is a Japan-only PC Engine game that came out in 1992. It was made by Tomcat System and was published by Irem. This is a game that again I never heard of, and with good reason as it wasn’t released outside of Japan. The game is a side-scrolling shoot ’em up… well, …


GRcade’s top 10 Xbox games of all-time

Narrowly missing out on the top 10 were Beyond Good and Evil, Doom 3, Grand Theft Auto …

Tackling the pile of shame

Reflection I’m slowly coming to the conclusion I have a serious problem with my relationship with games. It may be you also share this same issue, or you may not even consider it a bad thing. My problem is I just can’t stop buying games. There isn’t any kind of affordability concern, I’m not racking …



Mario Kart 8 Deluxe: The 5 best and worst tracks

Mario Kart 8 has been out for three years on the Wii U, but with its fairly recent re-release on the Nintendo Switch, I thought I’d jot down the five best and worst tracks in Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. I’ll also add a little on my feelings of the track. They won’t be long-winded, just …
