Current Obsession: Dead By Daylight

I try very hard to not do things pointlessly. I just have too much to do lately. Writing some fiction. Writing articles. Podcasting. And that’s all on top of, you know, BEING AN ADULT and having a job and a wife and things to do. My days are very full, and there is constantly one thing or another I’m “meant” to be doing, even if … Continue reading Current Obsession: Dead By Daylight

On Nostalgia And Biases

“Never Trust Anyone Whose Favorite Movie Came Out After They Turned 21”. I saw someone post this once on Twitter, and I was aghast. (I wasn’t. I just like the word “aghast” and need to work it into more things. “Rob, what did you think of your niece’s 2nd birthday party?” “I was aghast!” See? Always fun) Anyway, I started thinking, “Well how true can … Continue reading On Nostalgia And Biases

Bottom 5: Worst Generation 3 Pokémon

Moving on with our coverage of the most annoying/boring/uninspired Pokémon in existence, we journey to the water-covered Hoenn region, and see what it has to offer us for just bottom-of-the-barrel Pokeys. We’ve previously covered Kanto and Johto, and our current team of bad pokeys sits at Jynx and Unown. And you know what? There’s not even anything outrageously bad here in Hoenn. You’d think that … Continue reading Bottom 5: Worst Generation 3 Pokémon

The Bottom Five: Worst Generation 2 Pokemon

We’re back, as I INCREDIBLY RELUCTANTLY list the worst Pokémon of each generation. (At least the first six generations) ((We’ll see from there)) What is the basis for a determining a “worst” Pokémon? It’s easy and scientific! I look at a list of all Pokémon created in each new region, and then I think to myself “Oh, I didn’t like that one for reasons”. And … Continue reading The Bottom Five: Worst Generation 2 Pokemon

The Bottom 5: Worst Generation 1 Pokemon

This was something that was suggested to me back when I did my Top Ten Pokemon of each [of the first six] generation[s]. (I like brackets) I was makin decisions on which Pokemon I loved from those Gens; why not go through and find the ones I had no particular affection for? There are so many Pokemon to LOVE; aren’t there an equal amount to … Continue reading The Bottom 5: Worst Generation 1 Pokemon

Jab’s Game Reviews: World Heroes

WORLD HEROES: World Heroes is pretty much the bastards child of SNK’s fighting game series. There are worse one-shots and little-known side games (Aggressors of Dark Kombat, for example), but the four games comprising the World Heroes Universe stand out as being beneath SNK’s notice for the most part. The first game came out in 1992, hot on the tails of the success of Street Fighter II, … Continue reading Jab’s Game Reviews: World Heroes

Jab’s TMNT Review: Overview Part 2

For part one in this series, click HERE! THE PLAYMATES TOY LINE:-Well crap, you want something every kid I knew was OBSESSED with, back in the day? Look no further. These toys were AWESOME- some were incredibly-detailed, some were HUGE, and plenty of them kicked ass. My brother and I had all kinds of these things- General Tragg, Muckman, Baxter Stockman, my beloved Casey Jones, … Continue reading Jab’s TMNT Review: Overview Part 2

Entertainment Rex: November 2021 Part 2

After seeing how close I had come by October, I knew that I’d definitely get 200 movies in by the end of 2021 unless something truly went awry. So then came the next thought… could I do it by the end of November? And that led me on a film spree where I averaged about a movie per day, so let’s get the heck into … Continue reading Entertainment Rex: November 2021 Part 2

Top Ten: Generation Five Pokemon

After years and years of playing Pokemon, Generation 5 is the time when things finally started to change. With Generation 5 came improved Wi-Fi capabilities and a better device, the Nintendo 3DS (to be clear, Black and White were not 3DS games, but the 3DS’ backwards compatibility meant they could be played on it). And with those, came more efficient online play. That’s right, Geeration … Continue reading Top Ten: Generation Five Pokemon

Jab’s Reviews: The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Series Overview

TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES:-And now, owing to the big turnout in votes for the Ninja Turtles, I’ll be doing a big set of builds for the franchise! This will start off with the 1990s Movie series, then follow up with builds surrounding the trio of cartoons (leaving off Rise of the TMNT, which is too new and unknown to me)- a handful of characters will thus … Continue reading Jab’s Reviews: The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Series Overview

Top Ten: Generation Four Pokemon

So I bought a Nintendo Switch. And yeah, it SEEMS like a good idea. After all… there are so many good games, right? Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3! That Zelda one that everyone was on about! Something about Super Mario’s hat! And another Smash Brawl Melee, probably! So many games. But nah. I really only bought the Switch for one reason: I’m all-in on hoping for … Continue reading Top Ten: Generation Four Pokemon

Jab’s Game Reviews: Double Dragon

Double Dragon Double Dragon was a pretty sweet game back in the day. Everyone I knew played the 1988 Nintendo version. One of the very first of the “Beat ‘Em Up” genre, it has the standard plotline of “They kidnapped my girlfriend, so let’s you and me go and beat down their asses, one by one”. You played either Billy or Jimmy Lee (just Billy … Continue reading Jab’s Game Reviews: Double Dragon

Entertainment Rex: September 2021, part 2

I feel like this will be a very short discussion this portion of the month, as I could probably just plug in “I played Fallout 4, like, A LOT” and be done with it. Why did I not play more of that game way back when I bought it? MOVIES After a movie-heavy start to the month, I really tapered off in the back half … Continue reading Entertainment Rex: September 2021, part 2

Top Ten: Generation Three Pokemon

Pokemon’s Generation 3 is a weird one for me. In hindsight, it was a great, important generation. Introduced abilities. Gave us the first true system leap as Pokemon bounded from the Gameboy to the Gameboy Advance. Introduced some new battle mechanics. But man… when it came out, I was just so “meh” to it. I never really played through Ruby, Sapphire, or Emerald until YEARS … Continue reading Top Ten: Generation Three Pokemon
