I, GameJew: The Mushroom Singdom 05/26/08

[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't get upset, a...

 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 River City Rans...

 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, the controls are ...

 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 Turrican on th...

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 the game, I wen...

 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 in my head. Not...

 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 video I've ever m...

 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 where you're bei...

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 on the Turbo Gra...

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 chronological order and of...

I, GameJew: Mushroom Singdom 10/8/07

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 eleme...

I, GameJew: The Mushroom Singdom 10/1/07

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 impossible, but o...

I, GameJew: The Mushroom Singdom 9/24/07

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 I do, I decided...

I, GameJew: The Mushroom Singdom 9/17/07

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 write a song about ...

I, GameJew: Mushroom Singdom 09/10/07

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 than, for inst...

  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 months, I've been do...

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