Awesome Video of the Week: Mega Man 2.5D

May 29, 2009

Angry at Andrew for not continuing this potentially fun series, I decided to post a video in his absence… and I’m sure it will please everyone.

So… How many people, by a show of hands, liked Mega Man 2. Yeah? So did I. Sure, it was a tough game at parts, but it was FUN – something lacking in many of today’s games. Now, who here by a show of hands would play Mega Man 2 again if it was slightly modded to incorporate some of the finer points of 3D while still keeping the feel of the 2D game.

I’m sure the answer to that is a resounding yes, with the exception of the few of you who are too conservitive to change anything about the past. Read the rest of this entry »


Getting your Money’s Worth: Rock Band

May 27, 2009

Ever tried to play drums on rock band? If you liked it and thought easy wasn’t too bad… well neither was medium – but, when hard and expert came along you really needed to start practicing. The practice feature option of slowing the song down made that really easy too. Did you ever think that the difficulty and configuration of the drums in rock band was actually the same as real drums? I know every guitarist hates guitar hero because people think they have talent for the real guitar when they can five-star expert, but it would seem that rock band proves the (freaking sweet!) exception.

Digging deeper into the Super Mario Bros. 3 Hidden Levels, and other Super Mario Bros. series glitches

May 23, 2009

The story on Infendo that is currently at the top of Reddit’s “Gaming Subreddit” pointed out that there were in fact hidden levels deep within the Super Mario Bros. 3 cartridge that never saw the light of day. Interested in these levels, I decided to do a little searching to find out what these levels were really about. Read the rest of this entry »


Continue?’s Featured Artist: docjazz4

May 19, 2009

Hey everyone, it’s that time of the week again, time for “Continue?’s Featured Artist!”

Last week, I spoke about a great violinist named Ben Chan. Who, in between playing professionally and teaching, finds time to create YouTube videos of himself playing different video game music.  If you think back to that article (click here to read it), the last video I showed was a collaboration of three different artists: Lypurr, BenChan, and a guy named docjazz4, well this week, it is docjazz4’s turn to be in the limelight!

Let us all travel back to the year 1998, back when Billy C was getting inappropriate in the oval office, Google was founded, boys all across America learned to BE A MAN with the help of Mulan, and two video games systems where on the list of every child. One was the first succesful CD based home video game system, the Play Station, the other, the first succesful 64-bit system, with its crazy baterang like controller, the N-64. That year, Nintendo released what many consider to be one of, if not the, best game ever.

What was that game you ask? Well none other than

“The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time”

That game introduced children to a bizarre little instrument, the ocarina. The ocarina is one of the oldest instruments in existence and it is also one of the easiest instruments to play. In ’99, a young boy named Dave purchased an ocarina and began learning how to play. Fast forward to August of 2006, Dave joins YouTube under the name docjazz4, and in December of that year, he releases his first video, seen here.

That is docjazz4 and he is playing the Song of Time from that fateful game. Since then, docjazz4 or should I say Dave, has released over 100 videos and has played songs from Zelda to Halo. In addition to his large collection of videos, Dave owns around 20 ocarinas, ranging from simple 4-holed pendants to 4 chambered ocarinas (a multi chambered Ocarina allows for a wider range of notes to be played).

Since Dave began posting videos, he has become quite the hit on YouTube, having over 25,000 subscribers!

Check out more of Dave’s videos after the break! Read the rest of this entry »

May 14, 2009

Yes, the soundtrack up for review is Music from Jesus ~ The Fearful Bio Monster. I will admit that I often pick soundtracks by name expecting them to be awesome, but in this case I didn’t have high hopes for this – but Jesus, was I ever wrong!
