The Legend of Zelda’s “Dragon Roost Island, Gerudo Valley, and Palace Theme” perf. by The String Player Gamer and The Mini-Mario Orchestra

Diwa De Leon’s music is getting more and more epic every time I hear a new piece by him. And he was already pretty epic sounding to begin with. It would also seem that everyone is a Legend of Zelda mood with the release of Hyrule Warriors and now I yearning for the days where …

Reality Check Explores The Ideas of Call of Duty Advance Warfare Style Exoskeletons

I know the discussion in this video is about Call of Duty but I can’t help but think of Deus Ex: Human Revolution. Human-machine integration like this is pretty much just one step removed from actual augmentation like in Deus Ex and it has all the practical uses shown from that game to such as …

Durable and Ready for the City Life – Did You Know Gaming Looks Back at the Nintendo DS

Who knew that the social ideas of the 3DS like Streetpassing originated with the DS and the desire to make a handheld console suited for someone’s busy city life. I guess that explains why someone like me, a city boy, instantly grew attached to both consoles and took it everywhere I went.

Pokemon 3rd Generation’s “Elite 4 Battle” Alto Saxophone perf. by Sab Irene

Here’s something that I never thought I would hear. A saxophone cover of an Elite Four Battle. Specifically the one from Pokemon Ruby, Sapphire, and Emerald. It loses a little of it’s edge, but it still pretty exciting to listen to.   This song was performed by Sab Irene. If you liked this then I …

The Gist – Are Game Delays Good or Bad For Gamers?

In most instances, I cannot understand why people would be mad at a delay. Sure, there’s reasons like “this game is never coming out” and things can get complicated when stores already have your money for a guaranteed copy when the promised day arrives, but other than I am of the opinion that “you want …

Kingdom Hearts Medley by the Videri String Quartet

Kingdom Hearts is a series that has some of the best music in games. Not all of them are winners, but how can you resist songs like Dearly Beloved and Hikurai. There’s this overall theme of hope in the series, which makes it strange that a goofy mash-up between Disney and Final Fantasy resulted in …

PSBS Game/Show – Would You Want to Live in Sword Art Online

I would absolutely love to see the kind of potential there is of living in a virtual world Sword Art Online style. The negative points still stand as far as I’m concerned but I think the positives far outweigh them in at least exploring this kind of option. This idea actually reminds me of the …

JonTron: Anti-Drug Games – The Weirdest of the Weird

It appears that games about not doing drugs may need to learn from their own message. These are some seriously weird games. NARC especially, as it seems to showcase just where American priorities were at the times. Drugs = bad. Ridiculous depictions of violence = eh.   Seriously, let’s contemplate just what games like NARC …

Link’s Awakening Medley by Insaneintherainmusic – Let The Nostalgia Wash Over You

  I’m always blown away by these jazz medley’s that Insaneintherainmusic keeps putting out. This is one of those songs that I’m just going to listen to forever and not just because I have super nostalgic feelings for The Legend of Zelda’s: Link’s Awakening.   If you want to download this song, you can do …

Friendly Reminder: Rayman is Not Death – Did You Know Gaming Looks Back at the History of Rayman

The only Rayman game I’ve played is Rayman Legends on the Wii U, so a lot of the references they made I didn’t get. Now I’m glad to see that they made a lot of them to older games in the series.   The strangest thing about Rayman, for me at least, is that growing …

Super Smash Bros. Menu Medley (Melee/Brawl/Wii U) by The String Player Gamer

  Super Smash Bros. for 3DS comes out soon for us in the US and I can hardly wait. In anticipation, my girlfriend and I a few weeks ago had a weekend of Smash where we played through all of the games. That was a nostalgic trip. I kind of wish we waited a little …

Computer Simulation Attempts to Debunk Fake Moon Landing Conspiracies

All I can say that this is pretty mindblowing and it’s amazing how far computer graphics have come. Hopefully stuff like this can better convince people that the moon landing was one of the greatest human achievements of all time and, you know, not fake.

The Point – Destiny, Reviews and Aging Gamers

  Nostalgia is the true enemy of serious game criticism. It’s a distraction and often we only remember the really good parts of older games, while having a better picture of the good and bad when looking at new games. I also think there are some people who genuinely don’t like looking for certain new …

Uncharted’s “Nate’s Theme” perf. by Ben Morfitt

  Uncharted is another game where despite having some really awesome music, I rarely find people covering it. Probably because it would take a one man orchestra such as SquidPhysics, AKA Ben Morfitt to pull it off.

Easter Egg Hunting: Mario Part 3 – References. References Everywhere.

Lots and lots of reference in the later Mario games. Perhaps hinting at an interconnected universe. Maybe Super Mario Sunshine and Galaxy takes place in yet another split timeline from The Legend of Zelda. I’m sure someone has written some sort of fan fiction where the Star Bits are actually a universe’s worth of people’s …
