Nerdicus NES Review #9 : Advanced D&D : Heroes of the Lance

Title : Advanced D&D : Heroes of the Lance

Release Date : 1991

Publisher : FCI

 Estimated Value (as of today's date) : $3-$5


Did you ever have one of those D&D adventures, where the dungeon master has absolutely no idea what he's doing? The background story has little to no appeal, the monsters are worthless and uninspired, and the sense of adventure is non existent. Well, welcome to Heroes of the Lance.

Nerdicus NES Review #8 - Advanced D&D : DragonStrike


Title : Advanced D&D : DragonStrike

Release Date : 1990

Publisher : Strategic Simulations Inc

Estimated Value (as of today's date) : $10-25

Beware - incoming biased review here. I'm a huge D&D buff. When I think of D&D, I am transported back to my child hood where I went on nail-biting adventures into the wee hours of the night.  I still have some of my original character sheets that I designed when I first played D&D. Unfortunately, times have changed, and I just haven't had the chance to get back into the swing of D&D.

Nerdicus NES Review #7 : The Addams Family : Pugsley's Scavenger Hunt


Title : The Addams Family : Pugsley's Scavenger Hunt

Release Date : 1993

Publisher : Ocean

Just when I thought the Addams Family games couldn't get much worse, I had to start playing this monstrosity. In all honesty, this game makes the first Addams Family game seem like a 10/10 masterpiece. There are so many things wrong with this game, I don't even know where to start. Well, it's not like I have much of a choice now, do I? Might as well get this over with.

Retro Retrospective #2 : Rising Retro Popularity Pt. 2 - Online Auctions are your friend!

When I last left off with Retro Respective, I was ranting about the sudden climb in retro game prices within the last few years. Stores where you used to be able to buy some classic old school games for cheap, are now riddled with pricing inflation. With the ability to shop at stores pretty much nullified, you are only left with a few other avenues of acquiring said games to add to your ever growing collection. But for this portion, I am going to talk to you about one of the most popular methods used by everyone today - Online Auctions.
