Another year, another E3 I didn’t get to attend. It’s okay though, because the conferences are my favorite part of the show, and I get to watch them online for free anyway. The biggest take away from this year is that the industry still doesn’t “get it.” Once again we’re being treated to nothing but [...]

I can’t believe I was 8 years old when Super Mario Brothers 3 was first released on the NES. I had been lucky enough that SMB3 was released around my birthday, and being that my birthday and Christmas was the only time I would get new video games, I knew that this was my one [...]

It’s that time of the year again! I’ve spent the better part of this weekend (mainly today) putting together a new promotional video for Saturday’s upcoming NES Marathon. The video we put together last year was a huge success for us, and to be honest, if I didn’t make that thing and Gametrailers didn’t push [...]

Normally, we don’t expect any big announcements at this type [...]

What attracted me to MadWorld from the moment I first heard of it is that it was coming from Platinum Games, the development group formerly known as Clover. Considering the quality of their previous work like Okami and Viewtiful Joe, [...]

The toy line was similar to the old M.U.S.C.L.E. line (that I used to LOVE) in that it was made up of a boat load of small, soft plastic figures. Instead of being wrestlers, Pocket was based after mythical creatures, [...]

As some of you might know, I spent a good portion of my week working on a promotional video for our upcoming NES marathon. While we did well for ourselves last time, things were thrown together within a week and we didn’t really have the time to really try and push it. All we really [...]
