Medieval Dynasty Is The Purest Form of the Survival Game Genre. Medieval Dynasty Is The Purest Form of the Survival Game Genre.

(AfroGamers.com) Here’s a first for me on AfroGamers as it’s a modern game! We mainly look at retro stuff but I’m a big survival game fan and there wasn’t an abundance of those in the 80 and 90s. Medieval Dynasty was dropped late last year and it caught my eye but I just didn’t have the time to get around to it. Over the Christmas holiday, I finally got a chance to sit down with the game... [Read more of this review]


Throwback Video Games – Tecmo Super Bowl (NES Version). Throwback Video Games – Tecmo Super Bowl (NES Version).

(AfroGamers.com) This year is the 30th Anniversary of one of the greatest and most influential video games of all time and the name of that game is the critically acclaimed 1991 Tecmo Super Bowl for The NES. One of my earliest memories of the game was seeing my older brother playing this game heavily in his room and when I saw him playing Tecmo Super Bowl on the NES for the first time, I thought it... [Read more of this review]


3 Time-Travel Isekai to Check Out. 3 Time-Travel Isekai to Check Out.

(AfroGamers.com) World’s Apocalypse Online is a pretty incredible manhua that has been going for a while now. I just discovered it over New Year’s and Flaming Fortress’ work here had me hooked from the first two chapters. Let’s look at it and two other time-traveling isekai series. Time-Traveling Isekai I’ve discussed manga and manhua enough on AfroGamers that you guys know that I love isekai.... [Read more of this review]


The Top 5 Jerks in Dark Cloud on PlayStation 2. The Top 5 Jerks in Dark Cloud on PlayStation 2.

(AfroGamers.com) I’ve been enjoying Dark Cloud lately. It’s an action RPG that was released on the PlayStation 2 in 2000 and in the West in 2001. I’d put it down as a cult classic of the early 2000s. It isn’t an underrated game as it and the sequel have both gotten a lot of praise. However, it never got the shine it should’ve gotten. Seriously, this should still be an ongoing series today. Originally,... [Read more of this review]

(AfroGamers.com) Let’s take a look at another retro title and ask some logical, critical questions about the Donkey Kong franchise. Yes, it’s another trip into stuff that doesn’t make sense with Nintendo! Actually, it made more sense than a lot of the Nintendo and Super Nintendo Super Mario games—once you get past the first two Donkey Kong games. Let’s get into it. Where in the Hell Did Pauline... [Read more of this review]


Nintendo Really Needs to Work With Other Developers More Often. Nintendo Really Needs to Work With Other Developers More Often.

(AfroGamers.com) Nintendo is a developer/publisher that is known to really protect its franchises. I mean, they protect their franchises to the point that they would ax an anticipated live-action Netflix series for The Legend of Zelda. Nintendo’s Main and Subsidiary Developers Can Be Sluggish They’re also slow to move in many ways. Games take years upon years to develop to the point you figure... [Read more of this review]


5 Head-Scratching Observations of Super Mario Bros 3. 5 Head-Scratching Observations of Super Mario Bros 3.

(AfroGamers.com) Super Mario Bros 3 ranks in my top five Super Mario games. When I first played it on the original Nintendo Entertainment System, it was like being teleported to another world. That’s an important thing to achieve in any video game. The player shouldn’t feel like they’re playing through present day, this very moment, real life. It can be a trip back into time before they were... [Read more of this review]


Street Fighter’s Greatest Tale: Ken and Ryu. Street Fighter’s Greatest Tale: Ken and Ryu.

(AfroGamers.com) One of my favorite storylines in all of anime is the story of Ken and Ryu from the Street Fighter II and Street Fighter Alpha series. This friendship/rivalry was best told in the anime than the video games. The Core of Ken and Ryu Canonically, Ken always felt that Ryu viewed him as a bit of a nuisance since Ryu dedicates himself to training and fighting—and has since a young orphan... [Read more of this review]

(AfroGamers.com) Mortal Kombat is one of the most iconic game franchises of all time and one of the greatest fight game franchises of all time. It had its pros and cons story mode-wise and that’s what we’ll be getting into here. Not just MK but Street Fighter and King of Fighters. What do they all have in common? The almighty tournament to find the best…or to save the world. The Mortal Kombat... [Read more of this review]


Civilization 6: The Game That Keeps on Giving. Civilization 6: The Game That Keeps on Giving.

(AfroGamers.com) In 2016, I was playing a lot of Civilization 5 leading up to the release of the newest game, Civ 6. Of course, I was excited for the game. I have been playing Civ since the back end of the second game. Usually, it is not a game that I play exclusively as the main game at any time, but it is a game that I know I can fall back on when I fall out of favor with other games or am going... [Read more of this review]


Wrestling and Comics Have Always Been Similar. Wrestling and Comics Have Always Been Similar.

(AfroGamers.com) In the 1980s and early 1990s, professional wrestling in the U.S had two main approaches. These different approaches would influence the creative direction of wrestling going forward into present day. However, one influence would become the more dominant purely by longevity, an evolving product, and having strong exposure in different regions. Knowing Your Flavor: The Southern Vibe... [Read more of this review]

(AfroGamers.com) It’s time for another Manhua Manhwa Mash-Up! This time we’re looking at the manhua series Global Martial Arts—or World’s Best Martial Artist—by well…the loose translation is “Eagle Eats the Chick”.  I’m having a hard time finding the phonetic version of their name. Anyway, it’s a series that has gotten my attention as I’m a sucker of martial arts fantasy,... [Read more of this review]
