Tune in to OCremix’s Eevee EP!

August 20, 2013

Well I just wanted to drop a blurb about the latest release from OCremix so no one missed it. It is called the Eevee EP and it’s fantastic. It departs from retro a bit because the remixes span the original series up to the newer games, but it’s worth every breach of protocol. There’s a total of 9 tracks and every one of them is excellent. Each evolution of Eevee is given a song plus Eevee him/herself.

A Trip to the Smithsonian- The Art of Video Games Exhibit

September 21, 2012

Image

Every once in a while, an event pops up around the country, one that you really want to experience.  It is almost always, unfortunately, in a place that is nowhere near your place.  What would you do in this situation?  Most people would pass it up due to the usual factors- work, overly attached girlfriend, or laziness.  I’ve found, however, that with catalysts such as an enthused friend and a free weekend, one might decide to make the trip.

Now if all I talked about was how I “almost” went to “The Art of Video Games” exhibit, this would be as disappointing to write as it would be to read. Good thing I went!  I left Buffalo, NY with a friend of mine on a Friday night, and we drove 7 hours straight to D.C. all to see the museums and TAVG.  Was it worth it?  Oh heck yes.

Does Retro Mean Anything in Gaming Anymore?

July 9, 2012

As many times as a TV show or comic book breaks our thinking about how time flows: that it may just be circular instead of linear, is exactly how I feel about gaming these days. What we used to consider out of date, flawed, boring, and old-school has simply become “in”. It’s not an “old Nintendo” anymore, it’s a NES. It’s no longer a Mario T-shirt left over from my childhood, it’s the cool one I got from Hot Topic, or some clever pun shirt from Woot! In any event, I think it’s time we seriously considered if all of these interest groups tied to this concept of ‘retro gaming’, really still serve their original purpose.

All Hail Captain Nintendo

June 13, 2011

Don’t you always want to know the inside story? It’s always fascinating to get a behind the scenes look at your favorite video games or maybe see interviews with the actors of your favorite movies. Well how would you like a behind the scenes look at one of the biggest companies in video game history? I’ll give you a hint: It starts with an N. Even more interesting is the man telling all of the information, a nameless figure except for the title: Captain Nintendo. So who is he, and what could he possible tell us?

¿Por que Tenemos Pikachu?

May 27, 2011

Una pregunta que me occurio hace unos días cuando empece a jugar Pokémon azul. Normalmente juego Pokémon en ingles – así no me pensé que hubiera posible que la franquicia no traducirá todos de los nombres. Lo básico que sabia era que los nombres en japones eran diferentes. Por ejemplo: Dragonite era Kairyu etc. Así, la pregunta es: “¿Por que?”
