So having taken part in one or two of the previous “Review a Great Game Day” events, when Eric mentioned there was going to be a “Review a Bad Game Day”, I immediately knew what game I would do an article on if I did this, and knew…
Also, I present to you, the 5th and final part of Harold’s opening RR YT epic, MC Kids: Showdown at Fire Mountain!
Rockets. Meteors. A Professor. And a Voyage to the Moon. Harold’s Quest continues…
We’ve got more Donkey Kong action, as Harold takes a crack at Barrel Madness!
It strikes me that Harold’s MC Kids playthrough, is actually the first (full) NES game on the RR channel. Congrats Harold! The adventure continues, through the Mountains of Madness….or at least Grimace’s mountains. And isn’t that the essence of Madness?
It’s the 35th anniversary of #DonkeyKong, and to celebrate, we’re Game Challenging ourselves to a weird version of the original arcade game! I’m up to bat first, and madness ensues…
So, inspired by both a couple of other people’s similar articles on here today, but also inspired by their likely source, the announcement of Nintendo’s “NES Classic Mini”, coming in November, I am now writing this article, right here on Skirmish Frogs! (cue fanfare). It’s funny, because…
A Magic Man, lost his Magic Bag. And now you have to find his Magic Cards. No worries.
Harold’s OFFICIAL introduction to channel, as he plays his favorite game of all time, Virgin Games’ MC Kids for the NES. *The sound is a bit off on this recording, because it was Harold’s first time, and he can be SUPER quiet (unless he’s pissed).
A look at another cool (but hard) arcade puzzle game, Magical Drop! Not AS cool as Puzzle Bobble, in my opinion, but still pretty rad (yes rad).
New Game Challenge! We decide to see how far Harold can get in Double Dragon on one credit. But he’s Harold.
The final Power Rangers battle ends the way they always do: With some Megazord Action!
Billy broke his power coin. AKA Corey forgot he hadn’t played Billy. Poor Billy.
It’s Kimberly’s turn up to bat, as the Power Rangers adventure continues!
New Power Rangers up today. This time, we play as Zack, and go all Mastodon on Rita’s forces!
We challenge Harold to play a game that’s right up his alley. One of the grossest (or funniest, for some) games ever made: Boogerman, on the Sega Genesis!
Time for more Power Rangers! This week, the Yellow Ranger, Trini, is up to bat! Plus: Corey doesn’t know there’s a wall-jump, and madness ensues!
First Ninja Turtles, now Power Rangers. It’s more fighting action than you can shake a power coin at! Saddle up, cuz it’s Morphin’ Time!
So I FINALLY got around to finishing this monster project I started. It was good, but I think ideally, I should have done it a year each article. Lesson learned. This final installment covers the years 2010-2015. http://retrorevelations.blogspot.com/2016/05/best-of-best-20-years-of-life-and.html Here’s a sneak peak at some of…
Time to show people the first game I really got addicted to, the first that I guess could qualify as my “favorite game”, around age 4 or 5. Astroblast, on Atari 2600!
Corey takes the reigns, to try and show us the mysterious boss of the Wompa Cave. Will he be victorious, or just another frozen victim?
The fourth and final part of our SNES Turtles in Time adventures! Will Krang and Shredder end the turtles, or will the boys send those assholes back to Dimension X for good?
In honor of “Two-Dimensional Side-Scrolling Platformers Week”, I decided to post this article, originally appearing on my blog Feb. 28th, 2015. Cheers! One of the key elements in most classic side-scroller gaming, especially “platformer” games, was jumping. This was established as early as games like Atari’s…
Part 3 of our Turtles in Time adventure unfolds! From pirate ships to the distant future, we brave it all, just to tell Krang to sit the f*** down. Well….you know….whatever brain things do.
New Game Challenge! We introduce our friend Harold to Super Empire Strikes Back! Hilarity ensues.
Krang is up to no good! So we head off to Dimension X to teach teach his ass a lesson! #TMNT
Time to start a new play through, and next up on the docket? TMNT IV: Turtles in Time for the Super Nintendo It’s time to kick some shell!
In a fit of madness, I decide to take a crack at classic NES Punch Out myself, knowing full well that I’ve never played it all that much. Will I be the best around? Or will everybody be able to take me down?
Time for a new Retro Solo episode, this time taking a look at probably my favorite puzzle game of all time, Puzzle Bobble aka Bust a Move!
There’s no easy way out. There’s no shortcut home. It’s just us, Jafar, and some crazy ass shit at the palace. The Grand Finale of #Sega Genesis Aladdin is here!
Finally signed, sealed and delivered (so to speak), Part 3 of the Best of the Best series, covering the years 2005-2009! The mid-to-late 2000s were amazing, entertainment-wise, in fact they were definitely starting to see a downhill trend. But they did still have some real gems!…
NES. Mike Tyson. Punch Out. Round 2. Corey’s up to bat this time, seeing how far he can get before he Game Over’s. Will he go the distance and make it all the way to Tyson himself? Or will he get KO’ed by Glass Joe? …
Nothing weirder than getting stuck in the Genie’s lamp! Especially when it’s a paragon of great game design. RIP Robin Williams!
Brand new section now live over on the RR Youtube Channel, called “Game Challenge”! As the name implies, we’ll be challenging ourselves and friends to various classic games, trying to foil each other, trying to outdo each other, and generally creating mayhem. Cheers!
We try to escape the Cave of Wonders, only to discover that to survive this trial….we’re gonna need a Rocky IV montage.
There’s a cave, boy, a Cave of Wonders! Just remember not to touch anything but the lamp. And make sure to adjust for exceptionally good game design.
We continue our adventures of befuddlement and randomness on the streets of Agrabah and beyond, in Aladdin Pt. 2!
Ok, so believe it or not, the Super Mario World playthrough with Corey was actually vanilla mode. It was the first attempt really recording something like that, and we just kind of ran. In subsequent attempts, though there are hiccups along the way, shit gets rather “amped”.…
Took longer than it should have, but hot off the presses, here is part two of my self-imposed epic project, this time looking at 2000-2004! http://retrorevelations.blogspot.com/2016/02/best-of-best-20-years-of-life-and.html And here’s a few samplings of the content that awaits:
So, you guys want a treat? I decided to put up an early recording of me trying to play through the original arcade version of Mortal Kombat 1. And similar to my SNES Street Fighter II play through, eventually shit gets real. Too real. Raw, no edits, just…
