Pokemon ORAS’s “Zinnia’s Theme” perf. by TeraCMusic

  I think Zinnia is becoming a popular character in Pokemon. This isn’t the first cover I’ve seen of her theme but TeraCMusic‘s cover is, right now, probably my favorite.

Feast Of Fiction Makes Question Mark Cookie Blocks From Super Mario Bros.

  Maybe not a complex treat to put together, but definitely technical. You got to get those questions marks just right or the whole effect is just lost. Darn you Feast Of Fiction, I want these cookies but I don’t have the time to carefully make those questions marks!

JonTron Braves the World of Barbie Games

    Extra Credits recently did an episode that I think is linked very closely to the subject matter of JonTron‘s most recent obscure gaming trek. It has to deal with gendered mechanics and I think there’s no better way to see what the gaming industry thought of it’s female audience than seeing what happened …

Street Fighter II’s “Guile Theme” Banjo Cover perf. by Banjo Guy Ollie

  Despite going well with everything, I haven’t heard a cover of Guile’s theme in a long time. Banjo Guy Ollie‘s banjo cover here sounds a bit tropical, reminding of Angel Island Zone from Sonic and Knuckles.

PBS Game/Show Thinks Halo’s Weapons are Designed Brilliantly

  I never actually knew about the special abilities of Covenant weapons in Halo, so I’ll have to seem them in action for myself. I like the original design intention of the weapon matrices but I’m not entirely sure how much of it is still there anymore. Afterall, where does an automatic weapon, or even …

Super Mario Bros. 2 – Clever or Not So Clever? You be the Judge! – Really Freakin’ Clever

  A decent episode of Really Freakin’ Clever, but one that I think paints Nintendo in too good a light. Don’t get me wrong, I’m a huge Nintendo fan and I love almost everything they do, but this…I’m pretty sure I’ve read some materials suggesting that converting Doki Doki Panic into Super Mario Bros. 2 …

Majora’s Mask’s “Clock Town” Violin, Flute, Oboe, and Ocarina Cover perf. by Patti Rudisill

  Clock Town is quickly becoming one of my favorite Zelda songs ever. It just as this certain quality to it that just makes me want to go on an adventure but at the same time, go back home. I blame the expertise of Patti Rudisill and her skill on just many different instruments but …

I Never Knew I Needed Super Smash Bros. Cupcakes – Nerdy Nummies

  Rosanna Pansino makes some adorably amazing Super Smash Bros. cupcakes along with Michelle Phan. They seem easy enough to make too with the decorating looking like the hardest part. Seriously, I thought Rosanna was doing Kirby because he’s already cupcake shape but then Michell’s Peach turned out great, and the rest of them turned …

Discover Games: “Wind Waker, the “Reasonable Person,” and Subjective Criticism” by Shawn Trautman

An interesting blog post by Shawn Trautman that I think warrants a lot of thought. Essentially, it is Trautman’s rejection of the idea of the “objective review”. It’s a thought that has been circulating around lately but I think this article puts the idea of a subjective review into a new light that hopefully my …

Majora’s Mask ” Deku Palace” A Capella Cover perf. by Smooth McGroove

  I should have expected that with the release of Majora’s Mask 3D, a ton of fan covers would have been dropping. Oh well, not that I’m complaining or anything. Afterall, I love the musical stylings of Smooth McGroove. Especially with this song which sounds like an old SNES song with beatboxing.

Possibly the Greatest Sports Game Ever Made – Gaming Historian

  I’ve always heard that Techmo Super Bowl was a fantastic sports game, but never as enthusiastically as Gaming Historian‘s little review here. I’m also impressed to hear that the game is updated by fans. That, I wish I was featured a little bit more in the video. Still, it seems like a game for …

Smash Bros. Outfit Swaps – Fan Art by Mimibert

Everyone loves costumes in fighting games. The latest Super Smash Bros. has some alternate costumes for some characters, but you know what would be cool? Costume swaps. Who wouldn’t want to see Ike dressed up like Ganondorf or Villager sporting a Mega Man look? Apparently DeviantArt user Mimibert felt that way because their gallery is …

Majora’s Mask’s “Astral Observatory” Electric Guitar Cover perf. by Epic Game Music

  Majora’s Mask might be the first game where I was a fan of the music before actually playing the game itself. Currently, I’m working my way through the 3DS remake, but it’s thanks to people like Epic Game Music that entering every new area can feel a little bit familiar. Of course, this version …

Katarina’s Daggers Forged by Man At Arms: Reforged

  As someone who doesn’t play League of Legends I got to admit that I think those “daggers” are super cool. Man At Arms really does know how to do a good job.

Can You Tell the Difference Between PC’s, PS4’s, and the Xbox One’s Graphics? – Reality Check

  This episode of Reality Check deals with our perception of graphical differences between a gaming PC, an Xbox One, and a PS4. As expected, it can boil down to being nearly impossible to tell. Cam’s test subjects could notice difference but not really notice when there wasn’t any. I personally, can never really tell …
