Moving on from the early 2017 Capcom-fest, it’s time to look at one of first video games I ever experienced as a kid, arguably the single most popular and successful arcade game of all time, 1980’s Pac-Man, by Namco!
With WWE Wrestlemania 33 right around the corner, I thought there was no time like the present to share the Game Challenge we did of us trying to play the mid-90s Midway Wrestlemania Arcade game!
The true Final Fight is about to begin! Will Haggar and Co. win the day?
Last Chance! It’s come down to Corey vs. Ivan, and this time…it’s personal!
So over on Retro Revelations, early last year, I decided to undertake a ginormous project entitled “Best of the Best: 20 Years in Life and Entertainment”. It was my attempt to outdo the simple “Best of the Year” type stuff that many people do, and in typical Me…
Time for some more street brawlin’, punch flyin’, gang bustin’ action!
Corey joins us for Round 2, as we try to beat the “Ironman” at his own game. Literally.
As the LAST bit of Capcom action for now (honest), it’s time for the FINAL Fight! Haggar’s daughter has been taken, he’s got a certain set of skills, and with some help, he’s gonna get her back!
Shaking things up a bit, it’s time for a bit of racing action. Specifically, Ivan “Ironman” Stewart’s Super Off Road!
So we kicked off 2017 by celebrating one of the greatest games ever made, Mega Man 2. But as a final bit of celebration, we would be utterly remiss if we didn’t share one of THE most hailed aspects of such a beloved game: the amazing soundtrack.…
Now it’s Reed’s turn to play Mega Man 2, as it’s one of his favorite games as well. So he decided to take the Game Challenge, and see if he could beat the game without getting a single Game Over!
This is it! The epic conclusion to our Mega Man 2 odyssey! The final showdown with that nefarious fiend, Dr. Wily!
So it turns out, the game DOESN’T end when you defeat the 8 Robot Masters! Now we head to the TOTALLY INCONSPICUOUS Secret Lair, of that nefarious arch-fiend, Dr. Wily!
Emboldened by his victory over the first Mega Man arcade game, Reed sees if lightning will strike twice with it’s sequel, The Power Fighters!
It’s down to the final two Robot Masters, and it’s the none other than the rhyming duo of Flash Man and Crash Man!
Reed takes a crack at the rare but awesome arcade “fighter”, Mega Man: The Power Battle!
Episode 3 is live, and it’s all about the Metal, man!
The Mega Man 2 adventure continues. And Quick Man’s stage is some serious business.
Well, it’s a New Year, 2017, and it’s going to be a year of bigger and better things for Retro Revelations. To kick things off, my pal Reed has his “official” non-Game-Challege debut, joining me as I play one of my personal favorite games of all time:…
The epic finale of William’s Kirby’s Dreamland adventure is here. It’s time for a boss rush, before he faces off with the big man himself, King Dedede!
Harold is up to bat, taking his turn at Kid Niki on NES!
The Yuletide Game Boy adventure continues, as William comes to grips with Kirby turning into a Shoot Em’ Up! Will he survive? Tune in to find out!
For today’s Game Challenge, it’s time for a little nostalgia trip, as I challenge myself to play a game I owned as a kid: the VERY decent NES port of the Data East arcade classic, Kid Niki!
In November, you had Harold. Now you get his brother William, in his introduction to the channel, playing our very first Game Boy game, the classic Kirby’s Dreamland!
For a little bit of fun behind the scenes bonus footage, we reveal the story behind the first ever Game Challenge (Harold playing Actraiser 2), and how it all came to pass. Happy weekend, and have a laugh!
In celebration of my favorite season, I play one of my favorite arcade games of all time: Killer Instinct 2!
Wrapping up “Haroldvember”, I present to you, the ORIGINAL Game Challenge!
The epic recycling saga comes to a close, as Harold heads to the Arctic, to stop Global Warming, single-handed!
Now we see the ruinous outcome of capitalism and consumerism unchecked: TOXI-TOWN! Are we in the dark timeline, or is this 1985?
Wanna go for a ride? Then hop aboard, as we take Harold on the DKC Mine Kart Challenge!
Haroldvember continues, with Episode 2 of Global Gladiators!
As part of Haroldvember (just made that up), we’re sharing a Game Challenge we did with him, involving the SNES classic, Donkey Kong Country. Great stuff!
Since November is my friend Harold’s birthday month, then Nov. 2016 is going to unofficially be All Harold, All November! And to kick things off, Pt. 1 of one of his favorite games from the early 90s, Global Gladiators on Sega Genesis!
Happy Halloween everybody! No better way to celebrate, than with one of the spookiest, most Halloween-iest games ever made, the Capcom fighting classic Darkstalkers!
Now for something just for fun. I found an 8-bit cover of Michael Jackson’s hit song “Thriller”, so I decided to mess around, and did my best to match up what was there, with the way the music video went (including most of the long interlude part).…
This is it! The final Battle at Monster Mountain! Will we be able to beat the evil Warlock? Or will the world fall under the sway of tiny monsters, forever!?
Since I just noticed this was NES Day here on Skirmish Frogs, I figured I’d share this article again, because why not? It’s always fun to relive my memories of my favorite console of all time! *********************** THE video game console of the 1980s.…
Since I did the soundtrack to an awesome but lesser known monster-themed Konami game, I thought I’d do one for one of their BEST known games as well, and one of the very best game soundtracks of all time!
In the second part of our tiny monster adventure, we discuss who would win in a pissing contest between Aquaman and Nimor. And then we get caught up in a rousing discussion of Tengu, Kappa, and all sorts of delightful creatures! Oh, and I smash some more…
So since I was doing the game playthrough for this Halloween season, I thought I’d also take a crack at my first full game soundtrack video! This game doesn’t just have fun gameplay and nice variety, it also happens to feature one of the best 8-bit music…
