Basement Adventures: Decap Attack Basement Adventures: Decap Attack

Decap Attack is to me what SNES Mario is to a lot of other people. I would get to spend many hours platforming with a NES and SNES, but not until a little later on. For a long time, I only had a Sega Genesis and this was my platformer of choice. There’s actually some pretty interesting history behind this game. It’s a…

Basement Adventures: Sub-Terrania Basement Adventures: Sub-Terrania

Sub-Terrania is a sci-fi shooter for the Sega Genesis, the first system I ever owned. In the game, a mining colony has been attacked by an alien species leaving the workers stranded inside the mine.

Basement Adventures: Cyberbots: Full Metal Madness. Basement Adventures: Cyberbots: Full Metal Madness.

A little backstory is necessary here, so a few months ago while browsing craigslist late into the night I came upon a stripped down Marvel vs Capcom 2 arcade cabinet for a mere $200.

Playing Now: Resident Evil: Dead Aim Playing Now: Resident Evil: Dead Aim

Also known as Gun Survivor 4 if you have a Japanese version. Anyway, I picked up this game about 6 years ago while in line at a Gamestop. Some unlucky sap in front of me was about to let Gamestop give him about $2 for the game and I asked if he would be interested in $5 instead. The Gamestop clerk was a little upset,…
