Review of Retron 3 NES/SNES/Genesis Triple Game System

I am a classic video game fanatic, but classic video games are not a fan of me. A retro video game is like a fine wine, aging with grace and dignity, and typically getting better with time. Their consoles, however, are more like that relative you locked up in a senior center and only visit on the day before major holidays (since why waste a holiday on a person who can’t even remember what year it is).

The frustration of attempting to play an old Nintendo game on its system knows no bounds. You can blow as much as you want in the cartridge, but if the system is just too old to work, you are wasting your breath. With older video game technology copyrights going up for grabs in the past few years, many “clone consoles” have popped up that offer you the ability to play older games on them, often two systems in one like the RetroDuo.

Then along came the retron 3, which offers not one, not two, but THREE different consoles in one! With this contraption, gamers can relive their favorite NES, SNES and Sega Genesis games in cartridge form. Many of its predecessors were mediocre, so how well does this system rank?

Jakks Pacific UFC Action Figures – Frankie Edgar & Wanderlei Silva review

NOTE: This review is being used with permission from the original source, and partner site, thefightnerd.com.

Every nerd has an extensive action figure collection, and this reviewer is no different. Fans of my site have seen photos of parts of the collection before, which includes all sorts of figures from Evil Dead, Street Fighter, Marvel Comics, Masters of the Universe, WWF, Ghostbusters, and so much more. Jakks Pacific has been helping to feed my addiction with their deluxe UFC action figures, which I have been collecting since their first wave a few years back.

Recently, I got a hold of two specific figures, Frankie Edgar from Wave 8 and Wanderlei Silva from Wave 9, and decided that since I have not done a review of the UFC toys in awhile, that I was past due. In my past reviews, I generally enjoyed the figures, but there were some problems. Here we are almost a year later since the last toy review, and I wondered if Jakks had fixed any of those issues I had or if they were content producing the same quality of figures I had seen previously. Should hardcore MMA fans lay down their cash for these toys, or are you better saving your money on hot wings and root beer floats?

Hit the jump to check out the rest of the review, along with more photos of both figures!

“Supremacy MMA” Video Game Review

“Supremacy MMA” is the only MMA game in existence with a bad reputation before anyone even tested it out. Made by 505 Games & Kung Fu Factory, the game advertised itself as “the gritty world of underground MMA fighting”, featuring “arcade style combat” and “MMA legends”. Trailers for the game featured brutal bone breaks and violent knockouts, all taking place in dank, concrete pits. Definitely did not look too much like the MMA I knew and loved.

Some fans refuse to even touch the game because “it’s bad for the sport”. When I first saw the trailer for this game, I was one of those people too. However, the more research I did the more I learned that this was far from your traditional MMA game, and was trying to be something else. I wanted to give this game a fair chance, and as you will see from my review, I absolutely did. So to you, my readers, I give you the most thorough and unbiased review of “Supremacy MMA” that you will find online, and you can decide if your mind is changed by the end of it… if it needs to be changed, that is.
