  • New Podcast: Super Console Club

    More
    "Just when I thought I was out, they pull me back in." I've been in and out of the podcasting game a couple of times in the past... what has it been now? Six years? We had a good run with Robot in the Corner. I think that ran for over two... More
  • The Most Fun I Had Gaming in 2015

    2

    More
    Like many people, not everything I played this year was released this year. Heck, this past weekend I spent a little time playing the original Donkey Kong Country on Super Nintendo. Though a lot of what I played this year was 2015 titles, I just couldn't... More
  • Getting to the Core Appeal of Gaming

    1

    I'm sure this has been said by a lot of people this year, but it's worth repeating that 2015 has been an incredible year for the video game industry. I'm so eager to read and listen to Game of the Year discussions as I can see the case for several titles. There are no clear winners - not this time around.

  • A Dumb Post About Cabbage

    3 1

    Back in February, I shared some "Doin' Blunt Cabbage" pictures I made after someone in a Dark Souls group I'm in typed 'blunt cabbage' instead of 'blunt damage' (stupid auto-correct). Well, about seven months have passed now and we still haven't gotten over the cabbage humor. Recently in the "I Watched the Entire Overblood Super Replay" group on Facebook, we had a cabbage thread with over 1K replies in which people added the word cabbage to video games, movies, books, song lyrics and even professional wrestlers (you know, stuff like The Cabbage Man Randy Savage). Anyways, I recently created some more dumb cabbage images and decided to share them, including my Magnum Cabbage Opus - Star Wars: The Cabbage Awakens. It's all super dumb, but whatever. I like to have dumb fun sometimes.

  • Super Memories Maker

    You know... just when I think the best gaming memories I will ever have have already happened, I'm reminded that there is plenty of potential for more great memories to come. The past two weeks, I've been playing Super Mario Maker ; and not to... More
  • Getting This "Straight Outta" Meme Straight Outta Me

    2

    It's hard to keep up with the internet. Some things are relevant for weeks, but others only hours. I'm still disappointed that social media quickly moved on from the llama chase - THAT WAS GREAT! I have no idea if we've collectively moved on from this thing yet or not, but I love the Straight Outta Somewhere generator. That's some brilliant viral marketing right there.

    I love a good meme, especially ones that encourage you to come up with your own & aren't strictly shared as is. I particularly enjoy memes that don't require me to spend time in Photoshop to make my own. So... whether this "Straight Outta" thing is old news or not, I wanted to share some of the ones I came up with. Hopefully I've purged myself of ideas so I can move on with my life. HAHA!

  • An Idea for a New Crash Bandicoot Game

    2

    "Don't let your dreams be dreams." I don't know who actually wrote those words. If I understand correctly, Shia LaBeouf was just reading a script. Whoever it was, they're right. We shouldn't just let our dreams be dreams, but we should dare to dream of ALL the possibilities for future video games and at least vocalize that SOMEONE should make them a reality.

  • A Short & Simple Thought About Iwata's Passing

    1

    Sad times are sad, but I greatly appreciate the positives that come from them. It's moments like this (Satoru Iwata's passing) that I see an extraordinarily unified, positive message coming from the internet about video games. Things like this bring us together in a way that nothing else can. Let's not be too quick to forget these moments that expose the gratefulness we have for this industry and the people that have pioneered it.
