VC Review: Super Mario Bros.: The Lost Levels

October 16, 2007

When the Virtual Console was initially announced, one of the first games to come to many minds was the original sequel to Super Mario Bros., a game that didn’t reach Americans until the early 90s, and then only in re-made form under the guise of “The Lost Levels” in the excellent compilation Super Mario All-Stars […]

VC Review: Metroid

August 22, 2007

Back before Chun-Li or Lara Croft, there was Samus Aran. In 1986, Gunpei Yokoi (who would go on to create the original Game Boy) set off to produce another unique and revolutionary NES title, seeking to blend the platforming of Mario with the exploration and tool-collecting of Zelda. The end result was a nostalgic classic […]

NES = Mainstream Gaming

July 30, 2007

So, earlier today, I was blown away. While at a friend’s grandparent’s house, we were treated to a lovely dinner of chicken, and afterwards, one of my friends had wandered to the living room only to be reminded of the old NES stored there. He booted up Mario Bros. 3 and we filtered in, eager […]

Thursday Jukebox – 6/22

June 22, 2007

Never mind that it’s a day late… This adrenaline-pumpin’ mix from Punch-Out!! tells the tale of Little Mac and his quest to win it all, only to fail in the end. It’s called Little Mac’s Confession, mixed by Game Over, and it’s really something. Very rockin’, and the use of sung lyrics is actually welcomed […]

Kid Icarus “Documentary”

June 15, 2007

I happened upon this cool little documentary–another entry into the Short Cuts contest, though this one didn’t make the cut. It’s rather funny, though.

Thursday Jukebox – 6/14/07

June 14, 2007

While playing Kid Icarus and writing the review for it, I listened to this epic anthem. It’s a good listen, and I’ll bet an arranged version will be in Brawl. It’s called MegaloKidMarch, it’s mixed by Nixdorux, and can be found right here.

More Nintendo Short Cuts Entries

June 9, 2007

I’ve been peeling across YouTube in search of more quality Nintendo Short Cuts Entries, so I decided I’d share my findings with you… This one is pretty cool and very creative, pulling elements from Nintendo games to make a news show.

Naturally…

June 9, 2007

Of course, I’m getting some flak for my critical reviews of Kid Icarus and Mario Party 8. I don’t mind, though–somehow, I’m already used to it and roll with it–there’s always gonna be some punk who has a beef and doesn’t understand that my opinion is not stone and is my own, meaning that if […]

Amazing Punch-Out! Video!

June 8, 2007

I know that I showed a cool Punch-Out! video before, but this one knocks the pants off of any fan-made live action video game tribute I’ve ever seen. These guys made this video for the Nintendo short film contest–I sure hope they win, this is REALLY good stuff.

Retro Review: Kid Icarus

June 7, 2007

Back in 1986, a game came around that went on to become a cult classic, a game whose name inspired awe and fond memories in the hearts of gamers. That game went on to have an unnoticed sequel on the Game Boy, and since then, its name was uttered only in the past-tense and fans […]
