NECA Arcade Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Foot Clan Set – SDCC 2016 Exclusive

I looked at the NECA 2016 SDCC Arcade Turtles set HERE. I loved it! Go read that first before plunging into this one because I wrote about the history behind these sets over there. This feature is to look at the other NECA TMNT set  (The Foot Clan) available at this year’s SDCC.

Battletoads Soundtrack on Vinyl

This is NOT a piece about my love for this game. That will come later. But, I suppose if you see I bought this, you’d know I love this game. NES music is something I adore. My buddies and I play crib (laugh all you want) in the summer time outside and stream NES music […]

NINJA GAIDEN on the NES!

Here’s a little tale about gaming and me before I get into the main focus of the article (you’ll see some of these reflective bits as I start this site just to give you people who don’t know me an idea where I’m coming from when tackling these write-ups). I’ve been a gamer for as […]
