Gaming

I take a break from horror related games this week to play a particularly infuriating game from my childhood, Karate Kid for the Nintendo Entertainment System.  Along the way I find my inner fly catcher and maybe make piece with this demon from my past.  Maybe...

Neither of these games is "playable", but there is a certain charm to blowing dudes away with a shotgun in glorious 16 bit. Plus, that music...

To celebrate the release of Jurassic World,  I'm taking a trip back to the 90's and the first Jurassic Park game released for the Sega Genesis (Megadrive in Europe). Prepare to see me OH MY GOD IT'S A T-REX.

I try to use my hatefire to exact revenge on those who've wronged me while playing "Darkman" for the NES.  I am not very successful.

Put on your best tux, slap on some googly eyes and take a ride with me as we check out a surprisingly playable NES game based on the 1991 film "The Adams Family".

In honor of the release of "Fury Road", I attempt to make some sense out of "Mad Max" for the Nintendo Entertainment System.  A game where you can run out of fuel before you even figure out what you're supposed to be doing.  Oh, and don't forget about the bumper cars.  

I take a trip down someone else's memory lane with 1992's "Swamp Thing" for the Nintendo Entertainment System.  And lucky for you, it won't take my Game Genie codes. So get ready to see me die.

As a lifelong horror fan and Mortal Kombat devotee, I was thrilled when Jason was confirmed to be a downloadable character in Mortal Komat X. Horror tie-ins aren't new to the franchise, as Freddy Krueger was a (somewhat disappointing) DLC character in MK9, but now that I'm seeing Jason in action in MKX, it seems that he should have been there all along. Look no further than the fact that homeboy comes to the fight having already killed someone, dragging them across the ground impaled in the skull with his trademark machete. Fatality?

Whether you're an 80's baby or just a fan of all things 80's horror, this boardgame is most certainly for you. Mixtape Massacre allows you and five friends to play as various killers, stalking through the streets of Tall Oaks and having a slashing good time. As you move across the board, you have the opportunity to collect kills, as well as engage in brawls with your fellow monsters. This game has not been released yet, and Bright Lights Media is currently seeking crowdfunding to make it happen.

Watch me make heads or tails (or is it lightbulbs or TNT) of 1989's "Fester's Quest" for the NES, ranked the 73rd worst game ever made by GamesRadar. This god damn game...
