Angry Video Game Nerd Adventures Review  

Angry Video Game Nerd Adventures Review

If you grew-up in the 80’s, you should remember at least one game that made you smash your controller on the ground. Mega-man made you hate your life. Ninja Gaiden was the realization that birds are the Devil’s assassins. Ninja Turtles introduced you to the dreaded seaweed. In general the Nintendo generation has been raised to appreciate violently difficult gaming. At some point the difficulty faded into the mist and the gaming culture was left with content that catered to [...]

Metroid Review

Metroid Review

  Seeing how it’s been awhile since I’ve reviewed anything I figured I should get right on it.  With upcoming events such as Piper and I playing a bunch of wrestling games and the Halloween podcast things will get quiet busy.  Since I’ve already done Mega Man and Kid Icarus I thought I might as well do another game that kicked off an incredible series…..     Story: The only real story we get is after the title screen, an [...]

Mega Man Review

Mega Man Review

With the recent Nintendo Direct and all the news they brought with it, there is buzz all over the place now!  Between the new Mario 3D game, Also Donkey Kong coming back.  Probably the most refreshing news to most Nintendo gamers is the return of the Blue Bomber (AKA Mega Man!)  As a child I never got to experience the first Mega Man on NES.  I think this had to do with the poor box art that came with it.  [...]

Castlevania: Dracula X Review

Castlevania: Dracula X Review

Ever since the first Castlevania game was released on the NES I’ve been an avid Castlevania fan.  I love just about everything Castlevania with the exception of a Gameboy game or two.  Granted the games were difficult and still remain as one of the most difficult series, to me it’s also the most fun.  Through the whole series it’s had some visually stunning areas, monsters, and bosses.  Anyone who has played these games especially on the NES could probably relate [...]

Kid Icarus Review

Kid Icarus Review

  As a child of the 80′s I was all about anything Nintendo.  I loved them all Mario, Link, Simon Belmont, Samus Aran.  However I didn’t know much about Pit or as I always thought his name was Kid Icarus. Even on the show Captain N they called him Kid Icarus!  I remember seeing this game plenty of times at the stores, although I believe the boxart mostly turned me off to this game.  I didn’t want to be some pansy angel shooting [...]

Final Fantasy 2 (IV) Review

Final Fantasy 2 (IV) Review

  I’d like to tell everyone a tale, it will be a tale with many ups and some downs.  The tale is called..”Final Fantasy used to be really good and lately it’s been sucking a lot.”  Now as we all know over in Japan the numbering sequence of the Final Fantasy games is a bit different from over here.  For the sake of this story and my review I will stick with the American numbering of the series to avoid any [...]

Earthbound Review

Earthbound Review

First and foremost I should apologize for taking such a long holiday break.   Also I know in my last review I teased a Wing Commander review (which I still plan on doing.) As I’ve said with the holidays and some other personal things coming up I put the reviews on hiatus, however with things settling down for the most part I can pick it back up.  With all the said and done on with the review!       As [...]

The Legend of Zelda A Link To The Past Review

The Legend of Zelda A Link To The Past Review

  I was going to do my review on the second Lunar game, but it’s taking a bit longer then I had anticipated.  So I figured I’d finish Fantasy Month up with a bang!  I try to refrain from picking super popular games as I’m sure this one needs no introduction.  As I did with Super Mario World all I can do is give my opinion to why to me this is the best one of the series and probably [...]
