Extra Credit’s 200th Episode Celebrates the Last 6 Years of Games

I think it’s very important to realize just how far we have come in the last 6 years. 2008 is when I graduated high school. I don’t think there really was an indie scene at that point. The only thing I was sure of was that I wanted to make games and I was going …

IGN: Sentris and Kickstarter Advice

I actually got to play this game at GDC last year and it was actually one of my favorite games there. I remember asking how to play it and Samantha telling me that learning how to play was part of the fun. Usually I hate those kinds of games, like I at least want to …

The Gist: Why is the The Walking Dead So Good at Storytelling

I still haven’t played this game, but I really need to. This Gist video has pretty much convinced me too since I really like the concept of a timer making you have to choose just as fast as the characters.

Quote Battle – Kid Icarus: Uprising Style

For anyone who has never played Kid Icarus: Uprising, this is the kind of dialogue you are missing out on. This was animated by AmazingArtistYellow who has some pretty decent animations on their channel so you should check those out as well.

Breakdown of Legend: Analysis of the Spirit Temple

Wally the Legend is taking on the goods and the bads of the various Legend of Zelda temples and I figured it might be just as fun to play along.   So one of the first things he brings up about the Spirit Temple is the fact that the temple must be tackled using both …

The Point – The Death of the Game Demo

I agree that with the death of the free demos included on compilation disks that perhaps our access to all sorts of games and genres we’re unfamiliar with has diminished. Perhaps if game publishers would start releasing demo packs.

Did You Know Gaming: The Legend of Zelda Part 4 – A Literal Link to the Past

It seems the Legend of Zelda franchise owes quite a bit to their literal link to the past. It’s almost funny just how many great and original games have come out of the developer’s desire to just remake their old stuff onto new consoles with new hardware.

The Last of Us – Live Performance and Musical Number

So apparently there was a live performance of The Last of Us. You can watch it here. That’s not the really interesting part. The interesting part is that they apparently based the ending off of the alternate ending, which was an improvised musical number. I can’t embedd it, but you can view it here.

PBS Game/Show: Who Are the Greatest Female Characters Ever?

A look at female characters might turn into a theme for this week between Danielle article yesterday and last week’s PBS Game/Show we could easily turn it into one.   Overall, I agree with Jamin’s rules. That the character must be playable, that she must have her own agency, and that they are not over-sexualized. …

Reality Check – PC GFX Explained! Antialiasing, Csync, Tessellation and More!

This episode is great for anyone who is aspiring to worship the PC master race and proclaim computers to be the console of choice. Me on the other hand, I’d rather stick the simplistic and dogmatic approach of console gaming.

Twilight Princess’s “Hyrule Fields” Marimba Cover perf. by Mart0zz

The Marimba is not an instrument I get to hear a lot of. Hearing Twilight Princess’s Hyrule Field like this kind of makes the whole song feel a bit more, I’m not sure, zany? Upbeat? It’s actually surprising similar to the normal version of it.

Really Freakin’ Clever: Mario and Luigi Superstar Saga

While I had my own gripes about their latest adventure, Mario and Luigi Super Star Saga remains one of my favorite GBA games for exactly the reasons outlined by Josh in this episode of Really Freakin’ Clever. In fact, I really have nothing more to add. Using A for Mario and B for Luigi was …

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, …
