Genesis Retro Mix Vol.1

The First SEGA Genesis Mix was a 5 Game series with a bit of a random selection: X-Men 2: Clone Wars, Garfield: Caught in The Act, Super Street Fighter II, Rock ‘N’ Roll Racing and Greendog

X-Men 2 Clone Wars (Action) – I don’t remember ever playing this game but the first level in particular looks very familiar.  I have seen this on people’s Top 10 or Top 25 lists for SEGA Genesis games, and after playing it, that doesn’t surprise me.  The controls were very responsive and there was some cool level design and enemy patterns.  I was pretty impressed with the game even if I got frustrated and got a Game Over.  I made it up to Level 3-4 and died at the boss fight against Exodus.

Garfield: Caught in The Act (Platformer) – This game looks fun, and by watching the demo it seems like there are some cool levels to play, but this game is HARD.  And it wasn’t even a fun/challenging type of hard, it was very CHEAP.  I played this with my wife and we made it up to the boss of the first level, but couldn’t figure out if we were actually damaging it or not.  It was very frustrating and seemed to be very unforgiving and cheap.  I was pretty frustrated with it.   I’m going to look into seeing if I was doing something wrong, or if this game is actually that cheap.

Super Street Fighter II (Fighter) –  I use to love the Street Fighter II series, but Read the rest of this entry

My Favorites of 2016

I didn’t play everything this year, I didn’t play every game of every genre on every platform.  I don’t even play PC games.  I know I missed out on some of the highest praised games of the year.  But out of the games that I did play, I had some favorite ones and found some memorable ones.  Some of the games might be leftovers from 2015 that I didn’t play until 2016. Hell, I even included some retro games in My Favorites of 2016.

This is what I played, and this is what I enjoyed. But to get a feel for my taste in gaming, I thought you might be interested in seeing what it is that I liked.  If you enjoy or have interest in the same kind of games, then you might want to keep checking back here on thegamerpad.com or on my twitch channel (twitch.tv/thegamerpad) because I might be covering the exact kind of games that you want to see covered.
