“Whatever Happened to Dr. Cain?” (Canon Question Video!!)

A recent Canon Questions article I wrote where I shared my theories on what might have happened between the classic Mega Man series and the Mega Man X series really got me thinking about the character of Dr. Cain. When I shared some thoughts on Dr. Cain with my good

Canon Question: What Happened Between Mega Man & MMX?

I recently came across a video on YouTube (one of many, in fact) where the producer was discussing his ideas on what happened between the classic Mega Man series (early-21st century) and the start of the Mega Man X series (early-22nd century). His theory was a bit out there and

As a companion video to my recent review of Technobabylon, I recorded the first 45 minutes or so of the game to give you all a taste of what you can expect. All-in-all, I still stand firm with what I said in the review: if you like a good cinematic

“Zelda: Flow of Time” — Frustrating Dungeons Await!

It always amazes me to find some of the super high-quality fan-made games out there that can rival ones put out by AAA companies, and Zelda: Flow of Time (Remastered) is one of those games. It really has a professional feel to it and looks like it could go toe-to-toe

I’ll admit it: I’m not the most knowledgeable person when it comes to Sega’s long-running Shining franchise of games. Yes, I have played a few of the games, but even so my knowledge is quite limited compared to major fans of these titles. Thus, maybe it will come as a
