Return of the Speed Run Article: Ocarina of Time

August 1, 2013

Cosmo Wright. A well known name in speed runs these days. His latest run on Twitch TV certainly turned a few heads: 22 Minutes for: Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. Much faster than my 8 or 9 hours… I thought that was the world record until I did a few searches to discover that nedeaS managed to shave 3 minutes off (somehow!). Both videos have jaw-dropping actions and insane glitches, but, I think the most interesting one to watch is actually the slower of the two.

Drew’s Walkthroughs! Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars – Crocodile Hunting (Episode 2)

June 30, 2011

Greetings!

I hope everyone is doing well! I’m back with another episode and to talk about some of the mechanics of this game.

Last video, we met a lively young tadpole (who didn’t quite look like one) by the name of Mallow from Tadpole Pond. He currently is on an errand for his Grandfather, but that journey was hampered when a purple, speedy crocodile snatched an important coin from him.

Mario decides to assist Mallow in retrieving his coin from the speedy croc. Chasing that thief down isn’t going to be easy with him being so fast. Will Mario and Mallow be able to retrieve the coin?

June 9, 2011

    Salutations!

    Have you ever heard of a game called Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars for the Super Nintendo? Well I have and it is quite a heck of a game. Created in 1996, with the help of Squaresoft, it combines Super Mario platforming elements with role playing game elements. What’s more, Mario moves in more than two dimensions! With a wonderful story line, the first plot involving stars, amazing music and awesome battles it is sure to keep you hooked.

The Politics of Final Fantasy

June 6, 2011
While the numbered Final Fantasies stand out in everyone’s mind; I’m going to talk about one that is a little less known and that was probably overshadowed by the hit of 1997 : Final Fantasy Tactics.

Kevin’s Let’s Play Korner #1 – Dune 2000

May 24, 2011

Hi folks!  I’m Kevin, and I make Let’s Play videos.  These are first-person recordings of gameplay with live commentary.  I guess a lot of people like them?  I know I do!

This will be a new, regular column with my Let’s Plays of older games, as befitting the theme of our site.  To start things off, we have Dune 2000, the sequel/remake to a game I have previously reviewed, Dune 2.  Dune 2000 was released by Westwood Games for PC and Playstation in 1998 and served as an updated remake of the classic that defined the RTS genre.  I’ll fill you in on the differences, the improvements, and the continued interface frustrations as I battle it out on the dusty sands of Arrakis in this old-school 2D RTS.
