5 Reasons PlayStation Should Bring Back Its MMORPG. 5 Reasons PlayStation Should Bring Back Its MMORPG.

(AfroGamers.com) EverQuest Online Adventures or EQOA was my second experience with a MMORPG only behind the well-known Runescape. At thirteen years old, me and my older brother would sit down in front of my PlayStation 2 and play EQOA for hours, late into the night, even if we had school in the morning. We would catch the bus to the other side of town to buy subscription cards for ten dollars each... [Read more of this review]

(AfroGamers.com) In the 1950s and 1960s, there were an abundance of comic anthologies. You had EC Comics with Tales from the Crypt, Marvel’s Tales of Suspense, and DC Comics’ Detective Comics to name a few.

Innovation and Bringing Something New to Gaming. Innovation and Bringing Something New to Gaming.

(AfroGamers.com) I’ve read plenty of reviews on games as a gamer and written a bunch of reviews myself. One thing I’m usually keen about is mentioning whether a game adds anything new to gaming or a genre. I’ve found that games don’t always have to add anything, innovative, or change the game. It’s great when a developer does something new and it works but there are some cases in gaming where... [Read more of this review]


The Sad Case of Chrono Trigger. The Sad Case of Chrono Trigger.

(AfroGamers.com) One of the most beloved JRPGs of all time is Chrono Trigger. Its setting, story, characters, style, music and battle system hold a dear spot in the hearts of most old school JRPG fans. The artwork for the game was done by Akira Toriyama, the creator of the Dragon Ball manga series. The story of the game was done by Masato Kato who also did the story for the critically acclaimed Final... [Read more of this review]

(AfroGamers.com) Is it time for more Judge Dredd? I believe it is. Almost three years ago, we went into the series’ first multi-part arc in “The Robot Wars”. This time, we go into a brief story from September 1977 in “Neon Knights” and I’m not talking about the Black Sabbath and Accept songs of the same name! A Familiar Theme This story comes before the story “The Return of Rico”—which... [Read more of this review]


Throwback Video Games: X-Men (Arcade Version). Throwback Video Games: X-Men (Arcade Version).

(AfroGamers.com) As a young urban kid growing up on Jackson St, there used to be a pool room a few yards up the street from my old house called Mr. Joe’s Pool Room and I would often go there to mostly putting quarters into those big extremely heavy arcade machines despite that I was a very decent pool player. I remember coming home from school and often going to Mr. Joe’s Pool Room to play at the... [Read more of this review]

(AfroGamers.com) Roughly three years ago, our own Joe D wrote a tribute to the late Stan Lee in the form of his favorite Marvel games. Number three on that list was a favorite of mine: Spider-Man and Venom: Maximum Carnage.

5 TV Series That Were Cut Down Early. 5 TV Series That Were Cut Down Early.

(AfroGamers.com) The 2010s was a period of really dope shows with a lot of style and strong writing that ended early. In some cases, they ended at just the right time since the writing started to suffer. We’re going to look at a few TV shows that ended pretty early and could’ve gone further. Into the Badlands (AMC, 2015-2019) This was probably the dopest of the shows on this list. Into the Badlands... [Read more of this review]

(AfroGamers.com) Super Street Fighter II was a landmark in the Street Fighter franchise. It featured the best roster of fighters, a graphical improvement, and was just tons of fun to play and sh** talk with friends. The Super Nintendo version was the one I regularly brought to school during the last few days. Someone would bring their Sega Genesis for a little Mortal Kombat II while I had Super Street... [Read more of this review]

(AfroGamers.com) Bandai Namco’s Pac-Man is one of the legendary franchises in video game history. It’s one of the franchises that put Namco on the map in gaming while eating up high score-chasing arcade goers’ quarters for decades. If you can find an arcade, there’s likely to be a Pac-Man or Ms. Pac-Man machine. Hell, if you go into a rundown establishment of any kind, you might find a Pac... [Read more of this review]
