(Revoltech Spider-Gwen review)

WCW Backstage Assault is widely considered as one of the worst crimes ever committed to silicon, an awful piece of design that accurately represents the creative & financial cesspit that World Championship Wrestling itself had become at the turn of the millennium. That's what popular opinion would have you believe and to an extent I … Continue reading 8 Bit Bodyslam: TO THE BACK!
