About
My name is Joe Degand III I work full time and on the side I tattoo and do custom art and embroidering. Not much else can be said except that I love retro games and will shout it on the top of any mountian. I am a gamer from my days in huggies and will be till I go the way of the PASSAGE. If you don't under stand that u suck it's a five minute game any way i am an artist with enough skill to tattoo people so i guess that is good. And I am a friend to any one who needs one as long as your not a dick. Retroforce Go for the win but they all already know I love them those cats rock. Much love to all if you like what you see hit me up with custom work at 8bitcustoms@gmail.com.

So, if you haven't figured it out yet the winner of last weeks choice was Luigi's Mansion, and WOW, what a start. Well played ladies and gents, I had forgotten how good this game was. For any of you who don't know, the main point of these reviews of mine are to point out which games in my collection are still worth my time. In this busy world of mine what games are worth keeping. So each week, or every other week, I will let you guys and or ladies pick the next game on the list. So, Luigi's Mansion. If you haven't had a chance to play this game in the last nine years, then something is wrong. That is unless you never owned a Gamecube or still haven't purchased a Wii. Let's get my base impressions out of the way. Gameplay: Awesome, it is a mix between Ghostbusters and Pokemon, with a bass fishing mechanic of sorts. Soundtrack: The sound effects and voice over work are cute and quirky for a load of laughs. Graphics: The cartoon type of CG animation used holds up extremely well.



It is no wonder this was the fifth best selling Gamecube games. It is also a Gamecube launch title which explains it's polish. This game takes place in the Mario universe minus Mario, which is pretty rare. Luigi gets his chance to shine, his comedic timing is something I think has been missing from most new Mario titles. If you know anyone who hasn't played games in a while , but might have bought a Wii as a fad or for their kids then this is the game to get them back. There are a lot of games like this for the Gamecube as well as the Wii. I think we get lost sometimes and only play what's new out there but just because you missed a game doesn't mean you can't go back to it. And, if you aren't fortunate enough to have a significant other who games, this game has a little something for everyone. Whether they perfer the cute art style or Luigi's panic laced voice work, which can be qued up at the push of a button.



So for all of you out there that are just as busy as me Luigi's Mansion isn't a waste of your time. It only took me about 7 hours in total to beat the game, and to be honest that was the only bad thing I could say about it. The boss battles, like any good puzzle game take a little getting used to, until you find their weakness. That's where the bass fishing mechanic comes in, you can catch the ghosts by sucking them up and dragging it in the opposite direction. The game's last boss battle is very satisfying once beaten, and your ending house's size is based on how much money you have collected. If you have about ten to fifteen bucks you should be able to pick this game up online, or you might be able to find a copy at your local Gamestop or Play N' Trade. Either way Luigi's Mansion is a great way to blow a weekend and have a good time.

Well folks and or fans that does it. One down and 67 to go. Keep an eye out for the next voting post so I can start working on the next review. Thanks agian everybody.

So here is my list of games if you didn't read my last post let me catch you up. I am embarking on a review adventure in order to hopefully prove my self to the editors I have come to respect so much around here. As either a way to prove I have what it takesor just to complete something we should all try. So how many times have you bought a game only to play it for 2 or 3 hours, and have it do nothing more then take up shelf space? Well, I am going to go through my collection and then later maybe any new games I buy, and let everyone who is interested know which games are worth your time. You see folks I'm a new father as well as a hard working man with a full time gig outside of my writing, and I don't have time to play all the way through a crappy game. I will be letting people know my opinion on what games aren't worth my time and which games I play as long as it takes to finally see it all. So here is the list to get us started. From time to time I will be giving away some stuff whether it be art or some of my games. But what I need from you lovely people is just one simple thing in between reviews I will be putting up a list post for you guys to vote on and tell me which game I should do next. All you need to do is leave a comment with your pick thanks guys can't wait.

Hi everyone who missed me, it's been a long time since I posted anything so I thought maybe I would post some pictures of the things that have been keeping me busy. But first let me start by saying I am going to miss all of the old school D-toiders that made this site a second home for a while. I am officailly making my way into the business as it seems and the best Idea I had was to review all of the Games I own. Since we as gamers don't always finish the games we start, I am just as guilty as anyone of this, we loose out and or gain free time based on how soon we give up on a game. I want to help people with this as much as possible, I am now the father of a beautiful baby boy and I work full-time so gaming to me has changed. I no longer will sit through bad games if i don't have to. If any one has the same problems or time constraints as me maybe you'll will get something out of this Blog and at the least hear about some games you might not have heard of otherwise. Stay tuned for a list of all my games I have been thinking about creating some kind of voting system for the next game I should play. Maybe a comment vote post before I choose the next game. But anyways all seriousness aside here are some pics.

Thanks to every one who let me take pictures and I hope you all enjoy.























I hope You liked all of those awesome sports and a Pedobear. Quote-Kelly " I noticed that the Pedobear smelled like candy and children's tears." I thought I would share that one.









So here is goes good sir in order to whore myself out for swag I noticed that you are also a Pokemon Fan so there in is my proposal Pokemon on the Menu. We have all played the Smash Bros. games so non of those instead some of the more bad ass characters like Dark rai or even a trainer like Brock or i know it sounds weird but Professer oak would be cool. Also some cartoon characters would be bad ass such as Samurai Jack in a fighting game would be dope. And last but not least good sir to take some of the old school comic strip charcters and place them in the mix characters like the Phantom, the Shadow, or even Dick Tracey. I would die if such dreams came true but alas they probably won't but to dream of the abilities thos characters would have. The super moves alone are enough to drive some one mad. Peace and Holla at me to let me know if I win.
