Have You Played "Mr. Gimmick"?

Sunsoft were pretty much the masters of the NES.  They produced a collection of incredible games that pushed the hardware to its limits.  They rivaled Capcom (and pretty much outclassed Nintendo themselves) in pretty much all areas - grap...

 
 
 

Super Mario Bros. 2 (USA) Discussion

In our second discussion video Alex York and I talk about Super Mario Bros. 2 (USA).  I think we are planning on alternating between specific game discussions and industry discussions.  Unless we run out of industry stuff to talk about, in ...

 
 
 
 

New Video: Have You Played "Punch Out!!"?

A few days ago we found out that Little Mac has been added to the Smash Bros. roster.  I must be clairvoyant, because days before that I recorded this video!  But I only uploaded it today because I'm lazy.  Anyway, watch me play Punch Out!!...

 
 
 

New Video: Have You Played "Little Samson"?

Little Samson is an NES game from Taito, released in 1992.  It was a limited release that got promptly ignored, and so these days the game is quite rare and expensive.  But it's very good and worth playing, which I try to demonstrate with t...

 
 
 

My Response to The Bad News About The Wii-U

[font='lucida grande', tahoma, verdana, arial, sans-serif]A few days ago Nintendo fans got bad news - the Wii-U is doing really really bad.  Like... REALLY bad. Much worse than even I thought, as a $50 price drop, a new 3D Mario game and an...

 
 
 

Video Game Hip Hop

Exciting news people!  If you scroll way back through my blogs, you will find the very first one links to a song I wrote called "Real Hardcore OGs (Orignal Gamers)".  Now, after much delay, and back and forth and so on, I have finally finis...

 
 
 
 

Have You Played "Crisis Force"?

Late into the NES life cycle Konami released a shmup.  It wasn't Gradius or anything related to it.  It was Crisis Force.  And actually I mislead you, because it wasn't an NES game - it was Famicom game.  Crisis Force never left Japan and l...

 
 
 

Cliff Bleszinski Doesn't Get It

[font='lucida grande', tahoma, verdana, arial, sans-serif]The other day legendary game designer Cliff Bleszinski defended Microsoft. Apparently the AAA game development model doesn't work, therefore we should change the entire structure of ...

 
 
 

E3 Reaction - Nintendo is, well, Nintendo.

So another E3 has come and gone. In the glut of news and game announcements we learned a few things. We learned Microsoft has screwed itself and we learned Sony's got our back. But what about Nintendo? Definitely the most debatable issue of...

 
 
 

Have You Played "Super Mario Bros. 2 USA"?

Hey Paisanos, Mikki Saturn here.  Well, I finally finished and uploaded my American Mario 2 video.  You know how I was promising this video Monday night?  Yeah... sorry about that (you can't tell but I wrote that in the voice of the Residen...

 
 
 

Have You Played "Super Mario World"?

Okay, so it's this morning instead of last night... but that's okay!  Here's the slightly delayed Super Mario World video and this evening will be the final video showing the 2 main Mario games that aren't actually a Mario game... if you kn...

 
 
 

E3 Predictions/Wishlist

Okay, so, due to an overambitious schedule for this weekend and technical issue that delayed me a couple of days these videos are basically too late to do any good.  But gosh darnit I made them so I'm uploading the suckers!   It's my E3 pr...

 
 
 

Have You Played "Super Mario Bros. 3"?

Next up, Super Mario Bros. 3!  Still barely on track to get the videos out before the Nintendo Direct.  Tomorrow, Super Mario World and Monday we've got Mario Bros. 2 USA and Yoshi's Island (I consider these the odd ones out).  Enjoy!

 
 
 
 

XBox 1 Online-Used-Game-BS Rant

When I read the details of Microsoft's used game restrictions it pissed me off.  I made this video without any preparation, completely extemporaneously, and honestly I feel that it shows a little bit.  But hopefully my passion makes up for ...

 
 
 
 

Video: Have You Played "Super Mario Bros."?

Well, probably so!  But that's no reason not to reminisce.  In a couple of weeks E3 starts and some time before that Nintendo has promised a special Nintendo Direct discussing their upcoming Wii-U games.  We game we know they will discuss i...

 
 
 

Commentary Video: XBox 1 Reveal

As promised in my commentary video from yesterday, here is a reaction to the XBox1 reveal.  Audio/video sync is still an issue but I improved the situation a lot by trying my other webcam.  Anyway, enjoy and please comment and tell me why I...

 
 
 

Commentary Video: Nintendo vs. Let's Players

My first commentary video, in which I discuss the whole Nintendo/Let's PLay controversy.  Unfortunately the video and audio got out of sync.  I tried to resync them manually but they were too messed up to repair.  This happened in the conve...

 
 
 

Do You Dare to Kill E3?

Let's talk about the news of the day (or... several days ago): Nintendo. They aren't having an E3 press conference. When I first saw the headline my reaction was surprise, even shock. "What are they thinking?" I thought to myself. Bu...

 
 
 

New Video: Have You Played "Clash at Demonhead"?

Hey everybody, I'm back again with another video. This time we're looking at the overlooked classic "Clash at Demonhead". It was developed in 1989 by Vic Tokai, and features an interesting implementation of an open world in a side scrolli...

 
 
 

New Video: Have You Played "Mega Man 4"?

So first off, I know I'm late on this video. It was a combination of things, among them the fact that two of the videos I'd recorded were not usable. But at any rate, I'm back now with a new video talking about a new game - Mega Man 4! ...

 
 
 
 

Have You Played Kid Niki: Radical Ninja?

Yay! My next Youtube video! This one is about Kid Niki: Radical Ninja, an NES game (actually an arcade game originally) that I played a lot as a kid but that nobody ever seems to mention when talking about classic NES games. Well if no o...

 
 
 

New YouTube Series About Classic Games

I'm starting a new series on my youtube channel. I call it "Have you played...?" and in each episode I will discuss a classic game, while showing the gameplay from the first couple of levels. Hopefully it will inspire people to learn more...
