[video]88276:26[/video] After a month hiatus, I'm back with yet another singing review. I only did one of the two games this week because honestly, that's all I had in me. The game I chose was City Connection on the NES. Don...

 I'm a little late posting last week's Mushroom Singdom. A mixture of too much partying, Grand Theft Auto 4 playing, and sheer laziness kept me from posting this sooner.   But anyway ... amazing! Last week was ...

 Is it just me or is River City Ransom even better than I remember it? Don't get me wrong, I loved this game as a kid. I just seem to recall preferring Double Dragon. But whoa! This game is fantastic! For an NES game, th...

 They say that life is like a roller coaster. One week you're way up high, basking in the glory of some awesome games, and the next, you're way down in the doldrums dealing with the ho-hum of mediocrity.   Mega...

Wow! Two games that I'm not ashamed to sing about. I loved Bases Loaded as a kid. Played it a lot. Somehow, miraculously, it has stood the test of time and is still completely playable. Enjoyable, even. In my enthusiasm for ...

 Super R-Type is a lot more difficult than I remember it. You get all the way to the end of the level, you die, and it starts you back at the beginning. While writing the song, I had Jonathan Coulton's Portal song stuck ...

 It's Friday! I really wanted to get this week's Mushroom Singdom out much sooner, but I've had a crazy week. I launched a new site called Mannmade.tv. When I'm through uploading every song I've ever written (450) and vi...

 I know some people swear by Super Turrican, but to me, playing it for the first time as an adult, it feels like a very average shooter. Despite having great level design, and a few bells and whistles (there's one part w...

After a long hiatus due to world traveling, I am back with some more songs about videogames. This week in the Mushroom Singdom, we've got Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards for the Nintendo 64 and Psychosis, which was o...

I, Gamejew: We Didn't Push The Pixels

In what may be a rather obvious move, but hopefully entertaining nonetheless, I've parodied Billy Joel's "We Didn't Start The Fire", and made it about videogame history. Now, everything's not totally in chronologic...

Two words: Neo Schmeo. Having never played this console as a kid, I don't really have any nostalgia for it. Playing these three games only gives me a severe Street Fighter 2 knock-off head ache. Sure, Fatal Fury adds some in...

Wow! What a week for the Virtual Console! The Lost Levels is one of my all time favorite Mario games. I can beat it! No really, I can. It's the kind of game I get completely addicted to once I start. The last level is nigh im...

Upon going back and listening to nine weeks worth of Mushroom Singdoms, I came to the conclusion that I was relying too heavily on my classic "guy and guitar" mold. Since that's only a fraction of the kind of stuff ...

As has already been pointed out, this week's Virtual Console offering isn't quite as brilliant as in recent months, but that makes things a little simpler for me song-wise. The worse a game is, the easier it is for me to writ...

Funny thing I've noticed doing these weekly singing Virtual Console Reviews: I much prefer writing songs about obscure games as opposed to well known ones. For some reason, writing a song about, say, Cratermaze, is far easier...

  Yes, I've been away from Destructoid for a while, but after seeing everyone at PAX, it seemed like the natrual thing to do would be to start posting again. Hence: The Mushroom Singdom. For the last couple of month...

Does this little StarFox nostalgia resonate with anyone? Were there certain games you were more selfish with than others?
