[Review] Shovel Knight

August 25th, 2014

This game. This freaking game… Shovel Knight is amazing. This game is what you get when you combine: The fantastic music and boss design of Mega Man The platforming challenge of Ninja Gaiden The artifact collection and combat of Zelda 2 The overworld features and map encounters of Super Mario Bros. 3 And the treasure-seeking […]

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 […]

I had no idea this was a thing at all until Dragonkitty found out about it on Groupon (which is a great site, by the way. As long as you don’t need their customer service; which is terrible.) Anyway, we had the pleasure of attending the symphony last night at the Orpheum Theatre in Phoenix, […]

(Which is a kind of Xylophone, I guess.) This is outstanding.

Confused about how exactly the Legend of Zelda timeline goes down? Yeah, me too. Fortunately, the folks at GameTrailers put together an extremely entertaining retrospective a while back and I think it is still worth watching. If you haven’t caught it before, check it out. It has a robust timeline theory at the end, and […]

[Retro Review] Crystalis

June 28th, 2010

When I was but a wee lad, sometime in the early 90′s there was a new store that opened up in my hometown called Phar-Mor. It was not unlike your average Walgreens or CVS; a pharmacy with some essential grocery type goods. But Phar-Mor was something special. They had Nintendo rentals for 39 cents a […]

Ever wonder what it would be like if MegaMan were stuck in Mario’s world? How about Samus, or Link? Now you can take a swing at the original Super Mario Bros. as any of these characters, and more, in this amazing mashup called Super Mario Crossover. This is a perfectly recreated version of Super Mario […]

[Tube Tuesday] Zelda II Rap

January 26th, 2010

Good morning, I have been thinking lately about additional segments to add to G.U. and here is one of them. Youtube Tuesday may stick around, maybe not. I’m gonna try it out. Anyway the point is there’s so much stuff out there (and not necessarily on YouTube) to watch that’s just fun and interesting regarding […]

This weekend, I decided to take a trip over to Kongregate to see what’s new, and I found something quite alluring. There is a new game called Hero’s Arms. Labelled as a Zelda-like adventure game, this game delivers and far exceeded my expectations. The game is a top-down RPG like the original Legend of Zelda, […]

Thanks to the Philips CD-i, we will probably never see a true successor to the wildly popular side-scrolling Zelda game, Zelda II: The Adventure of Link. Being easily one of my top ten games of all time, this makes me sad every day. But, there is hope! A programmer after my own heart, named Konjak, […]
