TRUXTON!! Classic Game Room was the FIRST classic video game review show on the Internet in 1999. Returning in 2008 with new episodes, Classic Game Room breaks out a review of TRUXTON for the Sega Genesis 16 bit video game console. Truxton on the Sega Genesis is an exciting shooter, one of the best on the Genesis according to some people. This game is a tough, vertical scrolling space shooter like Fire Shark in the depths of the universe. It is a video game in the SHMUP genre of classic games, and like many SHMUPS you collect power ups and fly around destroying waves of bad guys with laser beams, electro bolts of lightning and green things. Truxton is produced by TOAPLAN. Toaplan made many shooters by Toaplan like Fire Shark and always put a lot of care into their games. This version of Truxton is a US release, presumably this game originated from Japan and has a Japanese version. If you are in England or Europe or Brazil you'd play this game on the MEGA DRIVE (aka Megadrive) and rock the MD with some serious Truxton action. Truxton sounds like a 1980's hair band right up there with Trixter, Winger, Bullet Boys, Slaughter, Skid Row, Warrant and Cinderella. That gypsy road can take me home all the way to an awesome game of TRUXTON!!!!!! TRUXTON!!!!!! Available on LP record (aka vinyl) and possibly demo cassette or 8-track, but certainly not on CD. TRUXTON featuring Edit-Station 1 and the Wind Squid dancers in the house. Check out the gameplay footage of TRUXTON rocking to TRUXTONNNNNN!!!! Will this game be re-released with updated graphics on the Xbox 360 XBLA game console or PS3 or Wii Virtual Console or Nintendo DS or Sony PSP or handheld thingamagig? Truxton is also the fictional name of a 1980's Hair Metal Heavy Metal band!!! The best Heavy Metal LP ever! Classic Game Room was the original classic video game review show on the Internet in 1999-2000, now on DVD. The reviews on the HD series are reviewing PS3, PS2, Genesis, NES, Atari and Xbox 360. XBLA.
Dust: An Elysian Tail review. Classic Game Room presents a CGRundertow review of Dust: An Elysian Tail for XBox Live Arcade. Awright, I wanna know what the deal is with furries and really good XBLA games. First there was Sine Mora, which blended Prince-of-Persia time manipulation with a good ol' horizontal SHMUP, and now there's Dust. And it's not because your maid has been slacking. This Dust takes the 2D frantic swordplay of an Odin Sphere, expands the world into a larger, Metroidvania-style adventure, and refuses (for the most part) to take itself seriously if there's a good one-liner to be had. This video review features video gameplay footage of Dust: An Elysian Tail for XBox 360 and audio commentary from Classic Game Room's TJ.
Xbox 360 Triple Pack review. Classic Game Room presents a CGRundertow review of the Xbox 360 Triple Pack for, you guessed it, the 360. Released in 2011, Playdead, RedLynx and Twisted Pixel developed this compilation, and it was published by Microsoft. Included on the disc are 'Splosion Man, Limbo and Trials HD. These are three of the best games ever released on XBLA, and this is a great purchase for those who don't like downloading games directly onto a console. Let's get Microsoft to do this with more XBLA games! How about Trials Evolution? This video review features video gameplay footage of the Xbox 360 Triple Pack and audio commentary from Classic Game Room's Gabe.
Tempest Review. Classic Game Room presents a CGRundertow video game review of Tempest, a tube-shooter game developed and published in 1980 by Atari for the arcade, presented as part of XBLA Game Room. Take a step back in time to one of the earliest and most influential shooting games -- Atari's Tempest. Marvel at the vector graphics that were revolutionary in its time! Relax with a selectable difficulty setting! Put in your headphones, because this game doesn't have any music of its own! This CGRundertow video game review features video gameplay footage of Tempest for the XBLA Game Room and audio commentary from Classic Game Room's TJ.
Detana!! TwinBee Review. Classic Game Room presents a CGRundertow video game review of Detana!! TwinBee, an arcade Cute-'em-up developed in 1991 by Konami for the arcade, presented as part of the XBox Live Arcade Game Room. It's bright, it's colorful, and it's tough as nails. Such are the hallmarks of the Cute-'em-up, as exemplified by Detana!! TwinBee. The foes come fast and furious, from below and above, and the only way to get additional weapons and support is to juggle bells in the air until they turn the right color. It's strange, it's innovative... and it's deceptively difficult. This CGRundertow video game review features video gameplay footage of Detana!! TwinBee for the XBLA Game Room and audio commentary from Classic Game Room's TJ.
Mr. Goemon Review. Classic Game Room presents a CGRundertow video game review of Mr. Goemon, an arcade platformer developed in 1986 by Konami for the arcade, presented as part of the XBox Live Arcade Game Room. Before there was any of this Mystical Ninja nonsense, you referred to that noble thief Goemon as "Mister." It's only proper. In this precursor to the Ganbare! Goemon franchise, the goal is to run to the right and obtain the golden lamp at the end of the fourth stage, while avoiding the townspeople, guards, ninja, and occasional malicious deity along the way. It'll be a struggle to avoid getting choked out in this arcade classic. This CGRundertow video game review features video gameplay footage of Mr. Goemon for the XBLA Game Room and audio commentary from Classic Game Room's TJ.
Konami Classics Vol.1 review. Classic Game Room presents a CGR Undertow review of Konami Classics Vol.1 for XBox Live Arcade. I know! Let's throw three XBLA games on a disc so they can take up physical space instead of just floating about on the XBLA ether. How about Frogger? It's Konami Classics, so there's gotta be Frogger. (Even though the XBLA version is kinda laughable.) Super Contra? Sure, why not, even if it'll just increase the number of profanities shouted at televisions around the country. C'mon, one more to round out the... what's that? Castlevania: Symphony of the Night? Oh, BY ALL MEANS. I think we've sold it here. (Now we just need a remake of Legend of the Mystical Ninja, and we'll be set.) This video review features video gameplay footage of Konami Classics V.1 for XBox 360 and audio commentary from Classic Game Room's TJ.
CGR Trailers, from Classic Game Room®, presents the PAX East teaser trailer for MAGIC™ 2014: DUEL OF PLANEWALKERS®.

Konami Classics Vol.2 review. Classic Game Room presents a CGR Undertow review of Konami Classics Vol.2 for XBox Live Arcade. I know! Let's throw three more XBLA games on a disc so they can take up physical space instead of just floating about on the XBLA ether. How about Track & Field? It's Konami Classics, so there's gotta be Track & Field. (Even though the XBLA version can't really be broken open with the ol' ruler trick.) Regular, Contra? Sure, why not, even if it'll just increase the number of profanities shouted at televisions around the country. C'mon, one more to round out the... what's that? Rush'n Attack? Sure, methinks the political climate has cooled down enough in the wake of the fall of the Iron Curtain. This video review features video gameplay footage of Konami Classics V.1 for XBox 360 and audio commentary from Classic Game Room's TJ.
