The Rob Reviews Code Name STEAM

I'm back with another video game review, this time with a very recent handheld game on the Nintendo 3DS, Code Name S.T.E.A.M.  "S.T.E.A.M." is, in fact, an acronym for "Strike Team Eliminating the Alien Menace."  This is a great example of a game that does a lot of things right, and a few things wrong.  I'll outline those, and tell you whether or not Code Name S.T.E.A.M. is worth your time and money in my latest video game review!

Games That Peaked in the 16-Bit Era [16-Bit Superstars]

It's true, my favorite era in gaming was the 16-bit nineties.  There were so many games on the 16-bit consoles (think Super Nintendo and Sega Genesis) that defined my childhood.  Many franchises evolve and get better over time...  But some peaked and climaxed in the 16-bit era!  Maybe they stepped it up from the 8-bit NES days, or got worse into the days of HD, these ten games were BEST left in 16-bits!
