I, GameJew: Mushroom Singdom 10/8/07


4:39 PM on 10.09.2007



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 interesting elements, but man, the two other games just sucked.

Of course, from a song writing perspective, it is an interesting challenge: Faced with three extremely similar games, I had to try to make each song as unique as possible, not just for the viewer but for myself as well. My favorite this week is Fatal Fury's song. While playing, I started to notice for the first time the array of characters watching the fight. The fist pumpers. The bouncing up and down-ers. And then there's the ones further off in the background who aren't even watching. There's this one guy just kind of staring off into space, and naturally I started to wonder what the hell he was thinking about. 

For the Art of Fighting, I took the line "It's imperative you don't wear shoes!" from the fact that this one fighter would remove his shoes before every fight. I thought that was really funny. Finally, in World Heroes, I wanted to go for a "You Got The Touch!" feel, that machismo faux-rock nonsense. 

I'm really happy with how this week's songs turned out. What do you think?

Conan O'Brien tries his hand at Grand Theft Auto V

Grand Theft Auto V is finally out, and pretty much everyone has gotten their hands on it, including Conan O'Brien. This is probably one of his longest and most enjoyable Clueless Gamer segments, because he actually shows quite a bit of gameplay. Around five minutes in he makes up his own quest and gets completely sidetracked, as open world games tend to do!more
