Welcome to the New Year! Enjoy an hour and a half of Wes and Dave discussing bullshit and their year in video games.

Works of Art — Gaming’s Most Inspired Visuals pt.2

As a continuation of Dave’s earlier post, I thought I’d contribute a few of my own personal favorite games that really had an impact on me. That’s what art is really about right? Evoking emotion, making the consumer feel. Although some of the visuals in the games I list may not shine in comparison with […]

HD Remakes I Crave

With the recent release, and subsequent purchase on my part, of Beyond Good and Evil HD (XBLA), the notion of other games deserving the high-def treatment sprang to mind.  We’ve seen games like Marvel vs. Capcom 2 and TMNT: Turtles in Time receive their updates, as well as Super Street Fighter II, but those games […]

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. Be they books, movies, comics, or other, the characters portrayed as anti-heroes are the most compelling in my opinion mainly because their flaws make them more accessible than the […]

Roundtable 6…

Matt, Dave and Wes discuss the pros and cons of the Sega Master System II and… some other things…

Roundtable 5

Dave and Wes once again ramble on incessantly because once we get drunk it’s very difficult to stop us from talking about video games. Even if we don’t really end up saying anything meaningful. At all. Anyway, at least this time we gave you some pictures to look at. Enjoy the randomly placed, gratuitous boob […]

Hype or Mystery: Which leads to a better gaming experience?

As an avid video game fan, it is very difficult not to spend my free time reading game news, watching game previews and reviews and generally searching out any and all game-related information so that I’m at least somewhat knowledgeable on current and upcoming releases and the buzz surrounding them. When there is an upcoming […]

Video Game Music Theater: Characters of Final Fantasy 6

Arguably one of the best RPGs on one of the best video game consoles of all time, Final Fantasy 6 holds a special place in the hearts of millions of gamers. The graphics and gameplay mechanics were solid and the story was excellent as 16-bit RPGs go, but the music was what really stood out […]

Video Game Theater: Volume 3

SNES Favorites The SNES may be the best video gaming console ever created. The quality of the library for the little 16-bit system that could is unmatched. In this iteration of Video Game Theater we examine some of my favorite SNES games… or at least their introduction sequences. Enjoy: Your browser does not support iframes.

Know Your Robot Masters

Mega Man 10 has recently seen its release as WiiWare and PSN and will soon be released for XBLA. With 8 Robot Masters associated with each title in the classic series – except for the original which only featured 6 – there are 78 Robot Masters to face in all. How well do you know […]

“Super Mega Awesome Ultra Nintendo” is more like it…

The SNES remains the pinnacle video game system to many gamers. The memories that are associated with that now-likely-discolored piece of early-90s, 16-bit hardware are so prevalent that remakes and Virtual Console ports are guaranteed money-makers in even a cash-strapped economy such as our own. A lot of folks fortunate enough to have lived through […]

Top 11 Co-op Games

For me video games have always been a shared experience. Having a younger brother meant always splitting my video game time and we grew up playing the NES and Commodore 64 together which had a limited selection of games featuring co-op or simultaneous play. Games with alternating play (example: Super Mario Bros. series) were alright, […]
