About Me:


I'm a former 1Up blogger (Jamie Writes Bad Reviews) seeking a new place to call "home". Many of my 1Up friends have migrated to this place and I decided to come on over as well.

I really enjoy playing my favorite old retro games and writing reviews for them. That's what got me into blogging in the first place. I hope make new friends on Pixlbit and hopefully catch up with old 1Up buddies.

If you like classic games as much as I do, then follow me!

Favorite Games:


I have lots of favorites. So many that I couldn't list them all here (I'd be all week). But a few standouts are Metroid II, Kirby's Dream Course, Kirby Super Star, Sonic the Hedgehog 1-3, Sonic & Knuckles, Rocket Knight Adventures, Crash Bandicoot 1-3, Crash Team Racing, Spyro the Dragon, Ape Escape, Final Fantasy VII, Grandia, and many, many more!

Favorite Music:


Drum & Bass, House, Dance, Soul, Classical

Snake's Revenge Review Rewind

Revenge never tasted so bland

Hideo Kojima’s Metal Gear series enjoys the distinction of being an icon that still resonates with the majority of the gaming community.

Nope, I'm referring to something much, much worse-- Snake's Revenge.

Ridge Racer Revolution Review Rewind

Over the Highway

I’ve always enjoyed the early Ridge Racer series. I fondly remember playing the original game over a friend’s house, wishing that I had a PlayStation of my own to play it on. It was very accessible and didn’t take a tremendous effort to make it past the learning curve. And not much has changed here in Ridge Racer Revolution. On the surface, it plays much like its predecessor. It even starts off with a Galaga ‘88 mini-game similar to the Galaxian one in previous game. Some regard Revolution as “Ridge Racer 1.5” due its similarities to the original, which is somewhat understandable since this game went for full price upon its initial release. Even so, Ridge Racer Revolution received a few nice tweaks that made it a decent step up from its predecessor.

Track & Field Review Rewind

Let the games begin.

Well, it's that time again-- the time that comes around every 4 years when hundreds of athletes from around the world compete in some of the most physically demanding competitions ever. Each athlete is highly skilled in their discipline of sport; but only the best get the gold. Of course, I'm talking about the 2016 Summer Olympics taking place in Rio de Janeiro today. With this exciting occasion just hours away, now is as good a time as any to take a look at Track & Field from Konami.
