So in light of the recent debate that seems to have cropped up online, as to whether or not “NES games have aged well”, I typed up what I’d like to think is a pretty solid response. http://silverbulletbill.blogspot.com/2017/10/aging-gracefully-argument-for.html
Haunted houses are some shit. Evil Haunted Castles are worse. Don’t go in em!
It’s Spooky Saturday, and it’s time to roll out the double dose of spookiness for October! Corey and his buddy Nick, from their own channel “Two Guys One Gam”, join me for some Game Challenge action. And because Nick has the bright idea that we should play…
The next chapter of our Castlevania adventure is upon us. Watch in sheer terror as we struggle with the reality of Dracula’s god awful home design and maintenance! The horror!
As if being in a demonic castle wasn’t enough, now we have to face one of the coolest, and most nauseating graphic effects in all of gamedom!
The epic quest continues, as we brave the Transylvanian countryside, trying to make our way to Castle Dracula! And lemme tell ya, it’s not a walk in the park.
The March to Halloween commences, and for the next seven weeks, prepare yourself for pure terror and madness! Reed joins me to play one of my all-time favorites, and also a game I somehow forgot JUST how unforgivingly hard it can be, Super Castlevania IV on Super…
You’ve read the article, you’ve seen the game, now rock out to one of the most underrated 8-bit soundtracks of the NES era, or perhaps one of the best game soundtracks of all time? Either way, the music is easily the strongest feature in this game! …
On our next stop in our long march towards Halloween, here is one of my personal favorite NES games as a kid. It wasn’t amazing, but being the massive Godzilla fan I was, discovering this game was absolutely perfect for me, especially because it turned me on…
The dog days of summer continue on, hotter than ever, and the action heats up for us, as we cause more things to explode!
We’re deep into the dog days of summer, so what better time to roll out some Top Gunning action, with the Neo Geo arcade classic, Aerofighters 2!
Time to look at another arcade classic, this time the 1981 Atari hit, Tempest!
To wrap up our summer Bionic Commando adventure, I thought I’d give people a nice BC soundtrack video. Cheers!
The epic conclusion to the saga of Commando Brando is now upon us! Can he finish the fight against the Empire, or will Project: Albatros devastate the world?
It’s the final Round! And I’m not in it! Who will reign supreme at Mario Bros., Reed, or Corey?
The Empire is like an Albatross, hanging around our necks. It’s time to find Super Joe, and see if he can be saved!
It’s the Semi-Finals, Jesse vs. Reed, to see who faces that jerkface Corey in the Grand Finale.
When it comes to the Imperial Forces, Brando didn’t just wreck ’em, he damn near Killt ’em!
Round 3 of the Mario Bros. tourney commences. Somewhere along the way, Corey and Reed decided it should be double elimination, so it’s me and Corey, Pt. 2! Will I reign triumphant, or will Corey add some salt to my diet?
When you’re born to tap wires, sometimes all you can really DO is tap wires. And when you’re infiltratin’ empires? You’re gonna need some major wire tapation.
It’s Round 2 of the impromptu Mario Bros. tournament! Mario Madness!
Super Joe is missing in action, but Nathan Spencer is the right Ladd for the job!
And now for a little something different: Mario Bros. Arcade Game Challenge!
And now for a little something special. My good friend Brandon came to visit, and we sat down to record a playthrough of his favorite game of all time, and a franchise very near and dear to his heart: Bionic Commando, on NES! If I do say…
Time to take a look at another classic 80s arcade game that I was somewhat fixated with as a child, Namco’s Rolling Thunder!
And now for Pt. 2 of the Space Invasion! After surviving deadly breakfast food and a Crab Dancing Girl, we have to contend with haunted castles and adorable Death Stars!
After I test-ran the game as a “Game Challenge” episode, my friend Reed and I were convinced that Space Invaders ’95, a lesser known arcade game, was weird enough, and fun enough, that we needed to make a whole playthrough of it. So here it is, Part…
Here is the soundtrack to Arkista’s Ring. Not long, but memorable, and very catchy. Like the game itself, it doesn’t do a lot, but what it does do, is effective and fun.
The first console I ever owned was a hand-me-down Atari 2600 given to us by an aunt. It only had three games that I can remember: Combat, my personal favorite AstroBlast, and then the infamous Atari hit Space Invaders. The problem was, at 4-5 years old, I…
The time has come, for the epic conclusion to Harold’s Cool Adventure. We reach the end of the road, and confront the final, terrifying Truth behind the insidious Alien Soda Conspiracy!
Having forgotten to upload this over the weekend like usual, Retro Revelations realizes their mistake, and gets that shit up late anyway! It’s round three of the lost Ms. Pac-Man Game Challenge, and Corey, who “isn’t good at Pac-Man” (his words), is up to bat! …
As the conspiracy deepens, Harold finds himself stuck on a train whose only destination…is Madness!
In part two of the Lost Ms. Pac-Man Game Challenge, Harold is up to bat. Can he join the 10,000 club, or will he gobble his way into oblivion?
Sometimes in life, you just have to learn to follow where the hands point you.
Time for some Lost Episode action! We originally recorded a set of “Game Challenge” episodes for Ms. Pac-Man, but realized after the fact that the recording messed up, and cut off part of the screen. But the episodes are just too good otherwise to leave on the…
So now it’s time to dive into another part of what I’ve privately dubbed “The Harold Trilogy”. Last time on the Sega Genesis, Harold played one of his “childhood favorites”, Global Gladiators, and it was…certainly an experience. And NOW he’s back with another of his Genesis favorites,…
First we touched on the Namco arcade classic, Pac-Man. And now, it’s time to look at their OTHER perennial “Golden Age” hit, the space shooter that truly defined the “shmup” genre, Galaga!
In the newest installment of “Forgotten Gems”, I talk about one of my earliest NES games, a fairly rare and fun little number called “Arkista’s Ring”.
And now for the epic (and frustrating) conclusion to Tiny Toons on NES! All that’s left is Montana Max’s mansion, and boy…is it a doozy.
After the sheer terror of that goddamn city level, Konami gives you a “break” by throwing Wacky Land your way! YAY!
