Video Game History: Dragon Ball Z: Sagas

From middle school to high school, Dragon Ball Z was one my favorite shows to watch after school. One of the earliest games was Dragon Ball Z: Sagas for PS2, Xbox, and Gamecube. Unlike the Budokai games, it wasn’t a fighting game. Instead it was more an adventure game where you could freely move yourContinue reading “Video Game History: Dragon Ball Z: Sagas”

Video Game History: Warioware (GBA)

Wario has been Mario’s rival ever since his debut in Super Mario Land 2 on Gameboy. In 2003, Nintendo decided to make-over Wario, and give him a brand-new and somewhat bizarre series.

Things I Like: Alien Hominid (Gamecube)

I heard the game was originally a really cool flash game, but the actual console version they built was apparently a little more of a solid experience. I ended up getting the Gamecube version not terribly long after its release. It was kinda like Metal Slug meets goofy alien stories. I mention Metal Slug sinceContinue reading “Things I Like: Alien Hominid (Gamecube)”
