Ramblings – WCW Nitro Live

ramblings

Hey everyone!  Welcome back!  This week on Ramblings, I’m going to be doing something a bit different.  I’m going to be writing something a bit shorter than usual, but it’s going to be on a canceled video game.  A game that never was called WCW Nitro Live.  I’m going to be breaking a couple of my own rules here by using images with watermarks, as well as linking to another site’s article.  This is because, as far as I know, the article is the only preview ever written for WCW Nitro Live.  Let’s get to it.

Ramblings – Arcade Archives

ramblings

Hey guys, welcome back!  This week on Ramblings, I’m taking a look at three entries in the Arcade Archives series on the PlayStation 4.  What is Arcade Archives?  Well, a company called Hamster has been taking old arcade games from various companies and porting them to the PS4.  Or, at the very least, emulating them with a custom emulator (likely a modified MAME).  I covered an older Arcade Archives game a while back (Super Dodge Ball), and it was pretty good.  This time around I have Contra, Double Dragon, and Double Dragon II: The Revenge for you guys.  Many of you have no doubt played the NES versions of these games, but I’m here to cover the arcade versions.  So let’s get on with it.

Ramblings – Crunchyroll

ramblings

Hey everybody!  Welcome back!  It’s that time of the week again.  Time for me to ramble.  This week on Ramblings, I’d like to take a look at my new favorite website, Crunchyroll.  Many of you may already know of Crunchyroll, but there are probably quite a few of you out there who haven’t.  It’s a legal streaming website for anime and live-action Japanese drama, as well as some manga.  I had known about it for a couple years now, thanks to its presence in the PlayStation Store, but I never gave it a serious look until last month because I’ve never been really big into anime.  That said, how does Crunchyroll fare for an anime novice like myself?
