Zackasaurus!

I am a little in love with Super Time Force here at PAX. The game is a retro-looking shooter in the same vein as Contra, with a great twist involving time travel. You can read all about how much we all love the stellar indie game right here.

But there is a character in the game named Zackasaurus (his friends call him "Zack") who takes everything to a new level. He is a dinosaur that wears sunglasses and a Hawaiian shirt and rides a skateboard. He is even a playable character in the game once you rescue him from one of the giant, screen-filling bosses.

Zackasaurus is modeled after those "too cool for school" videogame characters from the early 90s like Kid Chameleon and Bubsy. He is absolutely ridiculous and his dialogue is hilarious. Also, his catchphrase is "Kookabunga!", which I can only assume he says while either crossing his arms and leaning on a graffiti-covered brick wall or doing a sick jump on his skateboard. Kookabunga. So amazing.

Zackasaurus is my new obsession and the best new videogame character at PAX. And, oh yeah, Super Time Force is also pretty great. Look for it (and him!) in 2013. You are not ready for how awesome they both are.

Kookabunga!

Whoa, Myriad looks like no other twin-stick shooter

It takes a lot for a twin-stick shooter to get my attention these days. I like the genre just fine, but it's so saturated that it's hard to muster any excitement for the next one that looks just like the last one. Thankfully...more

Space Sluggers is chaotic and so incredibly cheesy

I'm quite a fan of old-school action shoot-'em-ups. Back in the day, I used to venture off to an arcade at my local pizza place and just chill out. With particular titles like Ikari Warriors, Smash TV, and Commando focusing o...more

Syphon Filter! That's not how tasers work!

We were messing with some unearthed PlayStation 1 demo discs over as casa mia last night. It was a bit of nostalgia hit, flipping between video panes. Also, why didn't anyone tell me about Tobal 2? It looks like a fisticuffs...more
