GameDrunk Game of the Month Club Part 2: Majora’s Mask

Wes and Dave discuss Majora’s Mask and games for next month. Enjoy

MusicBox: The OneUps (Artist Spotlight)

I happened to stumble on to a group of musicians with an affinity for retro game music this weekend. Playing through Majora’s Mask Saturday morning and being less-than-thrilled with the games music I commanded my laptop to engage Youtube’s abundance of video game inspired music. One group I’d never heard of before popped up: The […]

GameDrunk Game of the Month Club

Welcome to February!!! Game of the Month Club part one: Complete. Enjoy the discussion.

[GameDrunk GameClub] January 2013: It begins

  Our newest (and probably only) on-going feature takes the form of a game-of-the-month club, akin to a book club. Wes and I will both choose a game for the month, play it for two weeks, then play each other’s game for two weeks. This format allows both of us to play the same game […]

Year-End Musings…by Dave!

I’ve been out of school for 3 weeks now, a newly-graduated Masters student, and yet I haven’t done a goddamn thing to the site since. Call it laziness, if you must, because quite frankly, you wouldn’t be wrong. Still, the year 2012 is coming to a close, and with that I have some shit I […]

Dave and Wes Discuss the State of Nintendo

It’s true.  We really do. Enjoy.

Retro Gaming of the Future

New retro games is a booming enterprise. Slapping on HD filters, (sometimes) adding network play and other small additions and reselling games you’ve already made money on is a no-brainer. It’s also much easier for today’s consumer to pay $5, $10, $15 for a digital copy of the old games we used to (and still […]

Steve Wiebe isn’t the only person who got famous from Donkey Kong

Donkey Kong’s huge, monkey hand has shed fame on folks like Steve Wiebe and Billy Mitchell in years prior. Now, this barrel-tossing, female-stealing simian has gathered one more simple human into his orbit of fame: Me. I, Dave Funk, can now be addressed as Dave Funk, 1Up Member and Oral-History-of-Mario contributor. Behold! My debut on […]

Gaming as an Escape

If you are reading this (thanks to all three of you!) you almost certainly enjoy video games. Enough, in fact, that you are willing to read an article about video games written by a nobody on a unknown site. So in that vein it is logical to assume that you find video games to be […]

Ultima Forever F2P by BioWare on its way!

I am being virtuous to you all!  Sign up for the Beta!

Cheap Games = (sometimes) Good Games

There are deals abound for cheap games, as evidenced by this link; XBLA is slashing costs (“Oh my god, we’re having a fire!…sale.  The burning!”). I have a feeling games like Perfect Dark Zero and Advanced Warfighter (each $5) will end up on my hard drive.  Never played either of them to any great extent, so […]
