Zelda II’s “Temple/Palace Theme” A Capella perf. by Smooth McGroove

Growing up, I remember always hearing bad things about Zelda II. I was under the impression for a while that I thought the game was a mess and so actually surprised when the Temple song I heard in Super Smash Bros. Melee was from Zelda II because I thought it was really good. I was …

Super Smash Flash 2 – Release Date and Updates Coming to You Directly

I really can’t believe that Super Smash Flash is still a thing, but I guess if you can’t wait for Super Smash Bros. for 3DS and Wii U this is the next best thing. Not only that, but it has a bunch of characters we know would never make it in to Smash Bros officially, …

Animal Crossing’s “K.K. Bossa” Vocal Cover perf. by Sabrina Valenzuela

I really love Sabrina Valenzuela’s voice for covers like this but her vocal covers of other fans have introduced me to many more amazing artist. Take this song for instance, it’s a cover of MsNydroj20‘s cover, which was based on a fan sub of the Animal Crossing movie.

Banjo-Kazooie’s “Intro” perf. by SquidPhyiscs

This is quite the impressive Banjo-Kazooie cover. Usually in these types of things you don’t expect recreations of the voices as well but SquidPhyiscs went the extra mile.

Reality Check: The Psychology of Steam Sales

I watched this episode while also looking at my Steam Library and realizing just how big it is and how most of the games I’ve got in there are unplayed. Though to be fair to me, I get a lot of them through humble bundles where I really only want two or three of the …

Design Club: Mark of the Ninja – Stealth Games and Visual Cues

While I definitely still need to play Mark of the Ninja, this episode of Design Club kind of gives me the idea that too much information might remove some of the challenge or reward that comes from playing a game such as this.   Now I’m sure Mark of the Ninja is still plenty difficult …

Ni No Kuni’s “Main Theme” perf. by the Videri String Quartet

You can chalk Ni No Kuni as another game on my ever expanding list of games that I need to play someday, but at least now I can say I like the main theme. Thank you Videri String Quartet.

Design Club: Portal and Tutorials Mechanics

I feel like there are some people out there who truly believe that tutorials are bad things. Like, the player should just wade through the near infinite combinations of buttons and mechanics to figure out how to progress. I know of one in particular who seems to believe that areas meant to teach, reinforce, or …

My Date With Captain Falcon (Feat. Markiplier & Nikasaur) by RandomEncounters

If Super Smash Bros. has taught me anything is that Captain Falcon is one weird dude. He actually kind of reminds me of Gaston in this video. Except with a mariachi band.

Cracked: The 5 Hardest Things to Explain About ‘Watch Dogs’

The real world potential of hacking has kinda been proven to a lot cooler and scarier than Watch Dogs. As the video pointed out the entire idea of hacking a city with a device that requires physical line of sight seems kind of contradictory. Also apparently some of the mechanics in the game just don’t …

PBS Game/Show: Why Do People Do Sick and Twisted Things in DayZ?

I never thought that comparing people in video games to things like the Milligram Experiment. It’s a little disheartening to know that just when you think humanity might naturally be inclined to good, they turn around and are just jerks to each other.   Something to really pay attention to though is the “Proteus Effect”, …

Pokemon Electric is Definitely Not Team Rocket

If only Pokemon were real. I suppose I could do without Team Rocket, but still, imagine how easier our lives would be if Pokemon generated our electricity and and huge lumbering Pokemon helped with construction. As long as it wasn’t pure enslavement then I think that would be pretty cool.

Donkey Kong Country’s “Jungle Groove” perf. by Music by Pedro

A good way to wind down after another work week.

Idea Channel: Could Sports Ever Replace War?

So not related to video games but I think an interesting idea to think about. And uh….Mike says “War, war never changes” from Fallout.   I think it’s an interesting thing to think about simply because games are becoming a rising e-sport and the alternate universe in which sports could be used to replace war …

JonTron Looks at….Titenic?

I wonder how one would go about and make a game based off the Titanic. Obviously most of the games JonTron looks at wouldn’t really work because they aren’t anything like the movie and feature platforming and fighting and things that you just wouldn’t expect from a game based on the Titanic or even the …
