E3 2015 Re-Cap

Dave and Wes discuss E3 2015. Good. Bad. Who gives a shit?

Our Latest Return Podcast

Wes and Dave realized they could do podcasts with one another even if they are not in the same physical location. This is the result of such a realization. So have a listen, pukes!

Backlogjammin’ – Another GD Podcast

Wes and Dave discuss a bunch of games they want to play but sometimes lack the time for. Dave does it sober, which makes him less interesting but more volume-controlled. Wes drinks a buttery chardonnay and has regrets.

VGMortal: Genesis Tracks & Teams

Make no mistake, the Genesis is definitely the underdog in this fight. The SNES library of songs, from top to bottom, is just too fucking good. BUT, when Genesis does it right, they really do it right. Team selections are going to make all the difference in the world, I think (Sega’s A-Team is looking […]

VGMortal: SNES Tracks & Teams

The betting favorite in this knockdown drag-out, the SNES has put out hit after hit. With goliath publishers like Square, and of course Nintendo’s in-house devs, some of the finest VGM ever created rests on those little gray carts. But do these tracks have the chops to take down the hated rival, Sega Genesis. Probably. […]

VGMortal Grudge Match – Genesis v. SNES

Flame war, on! It was debated on many a schoolyard in the 1990s: Genesis vs. SNES. It pitted family members against one another, drew lines in the sand among friends. Were you a Genesis kid, or a SNES kid? I was a SNES kid, through and through, loving games like Secret of Mana, Chrono Trigger, […]

Backlog Six-Pack

Well, six hours per game was apparently far too ambitious with a newborn. I’ve also found that I don’t need six hours to know if a game is worth playing or not. Still, I’ve been able to devote between two to three hours to Guacamelee, The Swapper, and Solar 2, and I was pleasantly surprised […]

MusicBox MixTape: Sean’s Lullaby vol.1

My son is hours away from birth. What better way to serenade him into this new world than with the soothing sounds of sweet VGM classics like these, presented before you.

MusicBox MixTape- PROGnosis: Awesome vol.1

There are some pretty rad, proggy VGM tracks out in the wild. Here are just a few of the best.

Backlog!

Another new feature! Let’s see if it sticks. If you, as a player of games (I don’t like the term ‘gamer’), are anything like me you likely have a large backlog of titles you have collected after seeing various deals and sales. And if, like me, you have nowhere near the amount of time needed […]

MusicBox OST of the Day: Gimmick!

There’s a pretty obscure SunSoft NES/Famicom game out there, that apparently sells for hundreds of dollars, called Gimmick!, or Mr. Gimmick!. In what looks almost like an early version of modern Kirby games, this lovable little tyke traipses through the game doing things to a completely-astounding soundtrack. Thus, Gimmick! is the MusicBox OST of the […]

MusicBox ep.1: Some Games We Know

Wes and I talk about games we’ve played and the music from those games that we remember. Our sound quality is not great, I talk a lot about things in which Wes is clueless, and Wes explains that he’s drunk. Games include: Street Fighter II Turbo, Jurassic Park (SNES–because Wes HATES the Genesis version), Actraiser, […]

Back from…somewhere!?

You thought you’d gotten rid of us. Wes has posted a bit here and there during my strange journey and prolonged absence for lo these many months. New job, new house, new impending kid–bitch, bitch, bitch. Anyway, I’m putting everyone on notice of the GameDrunk re-launch, re-branding extravaganza! We aren’t actually re-launching, and there is […]
