My Thoughts On The Live Action Sonic Movie & My History With Sonic.
(AfroGamers.com) I want to let the readers know that I have a very long 25 year personal history and equity with the iconic legendary character known as Sonic The Hedgehog dating back to 1995 when I was a little boy growing up on Jackson Street at the time. I remember telling my grandma whom I called “mama” at the time because she was like a huge motherly figure in my life despite some major flaws... [Read more of this review]
A Look at Shaolin Cowboy.
(AfroGamers.com) Shaolin Cowboy is a comic book series currently published by Darkhorse but has its roots going back to the Wachowskis’ imprint back in 2004. This series is extremely weird. If I could come up with something to tie this to, I’d say that there is ton of 1960s underground comix influence here. Actually, just underground comix in general. There’s definitely some ridiculous stuff... [Read more of this review]
Metro Exodus: Some Mistakes are Good Mistakes.
(AfroGamers.com) Despite being a good game, Metro Exodus hasn’t received very positive reviews. Reason? The publisher Deep Silver messed up the game’s success by making it an Epic Games Store exclusive on PC. This resulted in a massive boycott of Metro Exodus and review bombing. But surprisingly, this mistake didn’t hurt the company like how many people thought it would. In fact, Metro Exodus... [Read more of this review]
Chill Games Corner: American Truck Simulator.
(AfroGamers.com) My grandfather was a truck driver—as was my girl’s father. My mom would always tell me about Big John (my grandfather’s CB handle) driving here and driving there, parking his big rig in front of the house when he stopped by to visit. I’ve never had an interest in trucking or being a CDL—I’m not even a fan of racing games—but I love simulator games and American Truck... [Read more of this review]
Check Out Cyber Knights.
(AfroGamers.com) Every day, I’m looking at my phone and going through which games to keep and which ones to drop. Then I head to Google Play to find something else to play. It’s why my phone is rarely below 89-percent space. Well, it’s half the reason.
One game that stays on my phone is the 2D tactical RPG, Cyber Knights by the Trese Brothers. I couldn’t tell you exactly how many brothers... [Read more of this review]
EverQuest Online Adventures: The One Sony Let Go.
(AfroGamers.com) It’s safe to say that the heyday for MMORPGs on PC was the late-1990s to the early-2000s. During the early part of that period, Sony’s EverQuest ran the scene until World of Warcraft came along at the beginning of the 2000s. Unless you owned a Dreamcast and had internet, there were no MMORPGs on console. There was just Phantasy Star Online on a Sega console.
Then early 2003 rolled... [Read more of this review]
Old School RPG Corner: Dark Cloud.
(AfroGamers.com) The PlayStation 2 had numerous RPGs that kind of went under the radar. If you were serious about your RPGs, you didn’t miss many—although there are some you would’ve been better off missing. There is one RPG that was somewhat unique for its time when compared to the turn-based company it kept; Level-5’s Dark Cloud from 2000.
Dark Cloud: The “Oh yeah! I remember that... [Read more of this review]
Remembering the Ouya.
(AfroGamers.com) The year is 2012 and a microconsole is making a ton of buzz on Kickstarter. It picked up millions of dollars and had all of the makings to be something big—at least in video and on paper. The Ouya was released in the spring of 2013 and was poised to be a big deal. It fizzled out almost as quickly as it launched.
What Was Right With Ouya
Where to begin? If you loved your Android... [Read more of this review]
The Trail Is More Fun Than You’d Expect.
(AfroGamers.com) Mobile games can be hit or miss—more on the miss side. For every one game that really stands out, you’ll run into several clones. Of those clones maybe two would have potential. This is especially true of the recent influx of battle royal games and has always been true of mobile MMORPGs. Man, those MMORPGs are always so cluttered on screen. Then you have something like The Trail.

My Experience At 2019 Sonocon.
Note: Prior to the name of this event being changed to SonoCon, the previous name of the event for the past two years was “Gump City Con” actually drew some confusion amongst some people because when people think of “Gump”, they think about the film “Forrest Gump” which was actually shot here in Alabama which led to the organizers changing the name to SonoCon which means...

Character Spotlight: Cyclops.
(AfroGamers.com) Marvel’s The X-Men have been around for a long time—almost 56 years to be exact. In that time, the franchise has had several series, retcons, and teams. Each of these were interesting in their own way and is definitely the best soap opera in comics.
Xavier’s relationships with the empress of the Shi’ar empire, Lilandra and geneticist, Moira. The love triangle with Cyclops,... [Read more of this review]
My Top Dragon Ball Battles.
(AfroGamers.com) Dragon Ball is the gold standard for martial arts anime and shonen in general. While better animated series with stronger storylines and character development have come along (Naruto, Hunter x Hunter), Dragon Ball set the pace. In the almost decades that the series has been around, there have been numerous fights and some pivotal battles. Here are my favorite fights from 35 years... [Read more of this review]
