Game of the week: Rock ‘n’ Roll Racing (Review)

Thought RC PRO AM was cool on the NES?  Ever think it could get better?  Add Rock n Roll, nice graphics, and a snarky announcer, and you get Rock n Roll Racing – one of the greatest mostly unheralded games to come out for the SNES and Genesis/Mega Drive.

Aerial Assault – Sega Master System – Review

We are continuing our Sega Master System marathon with Arial Assault. I won’t lie, first time playing I was quite frustrated but after advancing that game became really addictive. Also, I think it’s one of the better looking 2d side scrolling shooters of the past.

Sega Master System: The Marathon

For the next 125 weeks Mitch and myself will be trying to purchase, play and provide a video review of every US release sega master system game.  We are starting with ‘A’ and will post at least one a week as we move through the list.  Mitch already purchased and recorded Action Fighter which will be posted tomorrow.  I will be moving on to Aerial Assault that will post by Saturday at the latest.
