The horror: watch this Super Mario World cartoon from 1991

By on February 9, 2014

Faint memories swirl about my brain as I recall the Super Mario World cartoon. It all seems vaguely familiar in my list of Saturday morning cartoons I can remember, but there is something blocking the memory for the show from being vivid like the ones I have for Animaniacs, X-Men, and Batman.

By on January 7, 2014

Good turn-based strategy titles seem to only come up every so often. Why that is is anyone’s guess, but when a really good one – Valkyra Chronicles, Fire Emblem – lands, it’s a pretty great time for those of us who enjoy the genre. Enter: XCOM: Enemy Unknown from Firaxis Games and 2K Games (ported […]
