Did You Know Gaming – Harvest Moon

I’ve never played any of the Harvest Moon games, but they do kind of look like fun. Reminds me of Animal Crossing but with a more direct goal in mind.   On that last bit, I can imagine the localizers being stuck between a rock and a hard place with a character like that. Their …

Did You Know Voice Actors – Kingdom Hearts

It totally makes sense that a lot of Disney related voice actors show up in Kingdom Hearts.

Scott Bradlee’s Saturday Morning Slow Jam – Pokemon Theme by

I never thought I would listen to this song again and actually really like it. It reminds me a lot of the version from Mewtwo Strikes Back, but slower. Of course, by slowing it down you can really just feel how goofy and over-dramatic this song really is. Not that it’s a bad thing.

The Point – Misleading Game Trailers

I guess I can’t say “well duh, how could you not have known this?” because before Alien: Colonial Marines I never really thought about this. Usually I didn’t notice any big discrepancies between the games I played and the trailers that revealed them. But it makes sense that a trailer is showing us a work …

Really Freakin’ Clever – Super Mario World

A very excellent analysis of Super Mario World and why it has always been my favorite 2D Super Mario game. The fact that the demo mode tells you everything you need to know about the new Yoshi is a particularly clever touch that definitely needs to be more recognized in ways to demonstrate your mechanics …

Animal Crossing’s “K.K. Moody” perf. by Aivi Tran

I’m not sure, but I don’t think I posted anything from Aivi Tran in a long time. Well, I’m glad she picked a great song to remind me that she’s still around. I love K.K. Moody from Animal Crossing and her cover of it a perfect way to unwind after a long day of working.

Reality Check – Invisibility Cloak in Real Life?

Wow, I can’t believe how far technology has advanced. Pretty soon we’re just going have legit magic.   I’m not sure how I feel about that kind of technology ever becoming real. Afterall, have you seen what someone can do when they’re invisible? I don’t know how comfortable I would feel if we had the …

Pach-Attack: Will Microsoft Keep Their Exclusive DLC

Pach-Attack! 1) Will Xbox Keep Exclusive DLC on Call of Duty?   Kinda interesting how console sales and install base don’t seem to play a role in this decision or at least not as much as the question asker probably thought. With more money and a lower install based, I think Microsoft will try more …

She Got Game – A Documentary About Women in Gaming That Needs to be Kickstarted

If there is one thing that I’ve learned from my time studying up to make games, is that everyone has the potential to make really amazing games. It’s why I’m so excited for this documentary that explores the female gaming community and women in the industry, hopefully putting an end of the nasty stereotypes or …

Pokemon’s “Team Rocket Hideout” by FamilyJules7x

So this song has always been kind of horrible but also kind of awesome. Made even better when played on guitar by FamilyJules7x.

Exploring the Lo-Fi Style of Aliens: Isolation

Check out some of the pure artistry that goes into making some games. While generally things like rain hitting a “camera” bug me, for something that is trying to catch the aesthetic of a film from a certain era, I have no problem with and this, recording footage on VHS tapes and then recording a …

Super Mario Bros. Theme, Wine Glasses and Frying Pan Version, perf. by Dan Newbie

I kinda burned myself out on the writing for today. So here’s a cool rendition of the Mario Bros. Theme played on wine glasses and a frying pan.

Idea Channel: “Did How I Met Your Mother Earn Its Ending?”

A little off-topic but in relation to the last post I think relevant.   For a while now I’ve believed that to make a good game you need to be an incredibly generous and sympathetic person because ultimately, you make games for people to play them. You need to understand how people work so that …

Metroid Medley by Epic Game Music

I can never get enough of classic Metroid music. Especially when compiled together in a cool medley like this.
