  • Thrifting Blog: Issue 5
    End of Summer Thrifts: Last Friday, we visited not one, not two but THREE Goodwill stores in one day. A Thriftathalon, if you will. Store #1: The local Goodwill: As usual, I search the “high roller” cabinet first. This is usually where the new, Target castoff video games are kept. Additionally, this is where the Goodwill employees put smaller video Continue Reading...
  • Thrifting Blog: Issue 4
    Late July Thrift Blogs: July 18, 2017 A Comical Haul: As my job is seasonal, I am able to go thrifting three or four times a week during the summer. My mom’s thrifting policy is “If you want to get the best stuff, go early and go often”. I’ve been living this philosophy lately and I’ve had some great finds Continue Reading...
  • Thrifting Blog: Issue 3
    July 12, 2017 Dark Souls- Prepare to Thrift Edition: I re-visited the Goodwill where I found Ash’s talking Pokedex and almost missed this diamond in the rough. Hiding amidst the stacks of outdated college textbooks was a hardback Dark Souls strategy guide. This was very easy to overlook, as the spine is quite plain looking. Had I not been close Continue Reading...
  • Thrifting Blog: Issue 2
    Crashing N-to Goodwill: So, this is a first. My mom and I went shopping at my local Goodwill on the morning of July 5th.  At the entrance of the store, there is a glass cabinet that houses anything that is considered new or “valuable”. Aaron and I refer to these glass cases as the “high roller” cabinets. Inside, I saw Continue Reading...
  • Thrifting Blog: Issue 1
    Hey guys! As a life-long thrift store warrior, many of the best items in my game and toy collections have come from secondhand shops. I love the thrill of the thrift store hunt and the feeling I get when I find a diamond in the rough. Aaron and I go thrifting fairly often (at least once a week) and some Continue Reading...

The Latest Reviews


  • Rock ’em Sock ’em Robots Arena | Video Review
    A trip down memory lane to a toy filled time where Mattel decided to break from the normal formula of just boxing and went for a straight up fighting/brawler game. Arguably the one of the best soundtracks of all time....
  • Jurassic Park: Operation Genesis | Video Review
    With Jurassic World: Evolution announced for 2018, I can’t help but feel the hype and desire to make a review for one of my favorite games in the Park Management & Simulation genre. So I did. Neat, huh?...
  • GameBoy Camera | Video Review
    The next review is of the old mediocrity that is the GameBoy Camera. A neat little peripheral that some photographers have been able to squeeze creative magic out of. However, the average consumer won’t find much more than a cute gimmick with a few interesting options and features....
  • Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards | Video Review
    The first in a line of video reviews by Aaron! The series is a mostly serious and informative look at both the content and history of the games that are being reviewed. Don’t fret though, humor is injected here and there for those of you who want a little comedy. The Next Review is the GameBoy Camera. Enjoy!...
  • Persona 5: Fast Times at Shujin Academy
    Contrary to the meme-worthy hit battle song “Last Surprise”, I did see this coming. Persona 5 was nothing short of a breakthrough success for Atlus and the long running JRPG (Japanese Role Playing Game). It was the largest debut in the series reaching #1 on the sales chart, and it is also the first JRGP game to do this since Ni Continue Reading...
  • Dead Cells: A Smash-Hit in the Making
    Metroidvania with a dash of Souls Dead Cells is what I’d call a brilliant amalgamation of various genres and styles. It’s one of the latest (released on May 10th) games to hit the Steam Early-Access page and is already rocketing off to high acclaim with the store’s customers. Currently the game is sporting a 96% approval rating at the time Continue Reading...
  • A Slice of Life…and Pokemon Puzzle Challenge
    Pokémon Puzzle Challenge for the Gameboy Color…one of many, many, spinoff games that came out during the latter part of Pokemania—the time when Pokémon paraphernalia could be seen in literally every room in my childhood house.  Pokémon beach towels and body wash in the bathroom, Pokémon toys and games galore in our bedrooms, Pokémon-themed kickballs and Frisbees in the garage, Continue Reading...
  • Nintendo Virtual Boy: A Diamond in the Rough
    A Brief History of the Nintendo Virtual Boy Ah yes… The Virtual Boy, one of Nintendo’s greatest commercial failures. A system that led to a falling out between the company and legendary Game Designer, Gunpei Yokoi (1941-1997). Yokoi is man spear headed the development of famous Nintendo handheld devices like the Game & Watch, and Game Boy. In the early Continue Reading...
