Pokémon X

Pokémon X is an RPG for the Nintendo 3DS. It is another installment to the Pokémon series by Nintendo, so I’ll be assuming you’ve either seen my Pokémon Blue review or know about Pokémon in general by this point. Feel free to get up to speed because this is going to be long enough without repeating a lot of the basics in detail. I was a little burnt out on the series after playing White, but I decided to give this one an honest shot because it looked pretty good. Continue reading “Pokémon X”

Doom 64

Doom 64 is a first person shooter developed by Id Software and distributed by Midway for the Nintendo 64. I’m going to assume you have already played Doom, seen my review of it, or know enough about it to avoid going over all of the basics.

However, this is more akin to something like the Playstation’s Final Doom in that it’s a game based on the Doom engine with all new levels. Though, unlike Final Doom, it’s considered a spinoff.

Doom

Doom is a first person shooter developed by Id Software for MS DOS. It’s one of the most popular and important first person shooters out there. I doubt you’ve never heard of it. It has been ported tons of times, played on many devices, and still seems to stand the test of time. It wasn’t the first first person shooter, but it’s definitely one of the first ones to come to mind when you think of the genre. So what is it about this game that makes it so damn appealing?
