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 Were Better on Sega Genesis Than Super Nintendo [16-Bit Superstars]

The Rob & Steve's celebration of all things 16-bit continues!  Episode 5 of The 16-Bit Superstars will shine the light on the "loser" of the 16-bit wars, Sega Genesis!  MANY games in the 16-bit nineties were released on both Super Nintendo and Sega Genesis.  Generally speaking, the Super Nintendo iteration was better.  But there were a few games that for one reason or another just excelled on the Genesis.  Steve and I will talk about a few of those games on this episode of The 16-Bit Superstars!

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!

The Rob’s Video Game Review – Beyond: Two Souls [VIDEO]

A few weeks ago my girlfriend and I started playing a PlayStation 3 exclusive (a year late, I know) called Beyond: Two Sould.  Beyond is Quantic Dream's spiritual successor to to the 2008 blockbuster hit Heavy Rain. Though not at all a sequel, Beyond will certainly remind you of Heavy Rain in many ways.  Is it as good as Quantic Dream's last effort.  Is it better?  Worse?  I'll tell you what's up with Beyond: Two Souls!
