POW! Right in the Nostalgia's Charlotte Pendleton reviews retro video games! From NES to SNES to N64...Genesis to Saturn... PSX to Game Boy... Anything goes as long as it's retro (and she's played it before).


As if my username didn't give it away, I'm a big fan of all things Mystery Science Theater 3000 related. I also love to draw and write as well as watch old 80s/90s sci-fi/horror movies and play older gen video games.

With "POW! Right in the Nostalgia", I've tried to make a web comic simply to see if I could still do one as I have tried making web comics in the past before with another one called "American Omiai" some years ago on Drunk Duck, but that mainly fell through because the artist that was helping me on the project didn't wish to continue doing it anymore.

Hopefully I can keep this one going for a long time as I had actually created a lot of the characters used in PRITN many years ago as doodles in my sketchbooks originally to poke fun at whatever I thought of at the time, which is what the "Big Shot" mini-comics I post occasionally are a lot of times.

Anyway, I hope you enjoy my work. It's rusty, but I'm working on it again as I've neglected it for far too long.

Aww... 2015. Good times, good times. ;)

I'd ask if this series was officially "done" but I know you're insanely busy with the main strip. XD
Good point.
Exactly the reason why I see this game that way. I can only look at it AFTER SOTN and other games.
Yep! If Char has the time :D
I liked that game more and even uh, emulated it <_<
Too bad that Metroid game is one that doesn't even involve Samus...or Metroids...or anything remotely Metroid-like. Nintendo! You gone done screwed up again!
If you can find it, it's relatively cheap. Go for it!
The original Metroid was great for it's time, and I remember as a kid playing it religiously. However, today with more modern Metroids having map options, it really shows how cryptic the original game was on where to go and what to do.

But yeah, if it weren't for this game, we wouldn't HAVE a Metroid franchise at all.

And Blaster Master, eh? ;)
