Weirdsday: Zombie Nation (NES)

Friday Flashback: Friday the 13th (NES)

Indie Developers: Offline only Co-op sucks

I love co-op games, especially "couch Co-op" where it is one screen, one game, many players. However, this is a console thing. It should not be an expectation on PC. The logistics and comfort of the standard gamer's PC rig is just not bu...

About thejamesshow00one of us since 7:35 AM on 04.17.2017

Just a regular guy, talk about games, make videos, sing songs, and play Dungeons and Dragons sometimes, other times it is other tabletop games but I get questioning looks when I say Shadowrun, Champions or Legend of the 5 Rings.

I am playing the first 10 or 15 minutes of pretty much every NES game released in the US on camera, do a live show now and then and write about dungeons and dragons when I get around to it. I also play and sometimes stream assorted other games from PC, PS4, Xbox One and maybe soon Switch

I also like/practice Tae Kwon Do, reading stuff, messing with a MUD I host, and dealing with my 2 kids.
