A Eulogy for the Strategy Guide

Do you hear that? No, of course you don’t. It’s silence. Why is there silence, you may ask?

I Found A Box Full of Cool Stuff!

I was looking for some of my old Atari catalogs, and I found them in this box that has piles of other stuff in it, so if you have about 45 minutes to hang out, I thought you might like to dig through this box with me.

There’s some cool surprises in here, like original Nintendo Fun Club cards, Midwest Gaming Classic flyers, old console manuals, catalogs showing games that never came out, and some promotional VHS tapes.

Thanks for watching, hope you dig it, and if you do, please do the whole like-and-subscribe thing!

This totally self-indulgent article has those answers! Continue reading “Grails”

Stalking the Dark

I can still remember walking into my usual haunt, the Pocket Change arcade in the Fox River Mall in Appleton, Wisconsin, expecting my usual rounds of Street Fighter II, when I saw a new fighting game from Capcom. It was like SF2, but faster, funnier, and…it was full of monsters. Darkstalkers had arrived, and unbeknownst to me, it was about to rocket up my personal favorite game chart with a silver bullet, and stay there to this day.
