Gamer's University – Updated More than Never!

Archive for the ‘Classic Gaming’ category

I have a confession to make: When I was very young, two of the earliest video game sequels I was ever exposed to were Super Mario Bros. 2 and Zelda 2: The Adventure of Link. Due to this, for a long while I thought that it was common practice, or even a rule, that game […]

[Review] Rogue Legacy

September 30th, 2013

Rogue Legacy. Rogue freaking legacy. So, let me break this down, a 2D sidescrolling platformer roguelike action RPG with randomly-generated metroidvania castles and long-term upgrade progression of your skills, equipment, and character classes– of which you get to choose a new one each time you die. It’s a mouthful, and it’s amazing. I finally finished […]

Greetings fellow gamers! I want to weigh in on two games that have been long overdue for a review, and I want to review them together because they share a similar theme, so let’s get right into it: EVOLAND Evoland began as an entry for LudumDare #24, and won. You can still play the original […]

Obscure Video Games is a tumblog, but I think it could be better described as a cache of buried treasure. It is an amazing and ongoing collection of images, descriptive blurbs, and animated gifs of videogames and videogame-related stuff that is so off-the-wall and weird that really there isn’t much wonder why they were so […]

Final Fantasy Dimensions challenged the way I thought about mobile device purchases, and it did so before I even made the purchase. Even to the point where I might consider it a moral dilemma.  Let me explain: Final Fantasy Dimensions launched initially for iOS; the prologue chapter (about 1-2 hours of gameplay) was free, but […]

I love stuff like this, mostly because sometimes it inspires people just enough to take a crazy pipe-dream of an idea and run with it. (it worked on me once!) http://johanvinet.tumblr.com/post/23535804010/calvin-and-hobbes-what-the-16-bit-video-game   Hope everyone had a Merry Christmas (or Christmas-like holiday of your choosing) and Happy New Year!

First be amazed: Then, be amazed some more: Super Mario Clone World (Forum Post) The point where technology meets tenacity is always an incredible place to be. This is the kind of stuff I love seeing.

Did you Know (Gaming)?

June 6th, 2012

Sure, some of them might just be unsubstantiated rumors but the vast majority of the content on Did You Know Gaming? is verifiable and just plain entertaining to read. This kind of thing is right up my alley, and surprisingly most of these things I did not know already. It seems that my studies have […]

It may not have a fancy-looking site, but the International Arcade Museum is an amazing place on the internet. They have a growing database of arcade games, pinball machines, slots, music machines, vending machines and more. Gimmick machines and novelty devices from the past galore, most pages with photos. IAM also offers auction listings for […]

Remember when most games consisted of only single screens for each level? Before scrolling to the right even became possible, much less (gasp) scrolling back to the left? A Super Mario Summary is something like that. This game is the entirety of the first Super Mario Bros., but each level is summarized, or “distilled” if […]
