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 […]

GameDrunk’s Bestiary of Pain vol.1

You’ve seen lists that include the top villains of all time, normally topped by either of the following three: Bowser, Gannon, or Sephiroth.  This is not that list.  Instead, I choose to delve into the world of the villainous grunts, the cadre of these evil-doers that make your gaming experience a living hell.

Best Anti-heroes in Gaming

The flawed hero, Byronic hero, vigilante, tragic hero, they go by many names but they are generally the most memorable characters in the stories we experience.

Ads! Part One

Remember magazines? They were those colorful books that had short articles in them about things. In particular, there used to exist magazines about VIDEO GAMES. Within these “video game magazines” were advertisements for…you guessed it: VIDEO GAMES! Video game ads usually fall into one of three categories: well done/awesome; funny (intentional or non-intentional); FAIL (makes-you-not-want-to-play-the-game). […]

Video Game Theater: Volume 4

Mega Man 2 Boss Levels With the exciting news circulating that Mega Man 2 is one of several games to be remade on the upcoming 3DS system, I feel it is an appropriate time to take a look back and enjoy what Mega Man 2 had to offer. In my opinion, Mega Man 2 is […]

Treasure Chest: Mega Man 3 ($6.98)

The ultimate treasure trove for nostalgic games of the NES/SNES/N64/Genesis/Saturn variety is your local used bookstore.  For me, that local establishment is Half-Priced Books.  This past weekend proved very lucrative:  a copy of the NES standard Mega Man 3 for $6.98.  Twenty minutes and $6.98 later, I was at home reliving one of my favorite […]
