And now for the epic conclusion to Monster Party, just in time for Halloween!
The ghoulish quest continues, as Big Jay and I delve ever deeper into the pure 8-bit madness that is Monster Party!
With Aliens as an appetizer, now we move on to the main course! There are few games that are MORE Halloween than this one, so let’s bust out the baseball bats, and have us a Monster Party!
The Halloween Countdown is officially kicking into action, and we’re starting off with some spooky Xenomorph madness! It’s the rare Aliens arcade game, by Konami! In arcades, no one can hear you scream…
Are you in a dancing mood? Ready to party with the King of Pop? Well, Chris and I join MJ, as he tries to save the children from that nefarious Mr. Big, in the Moonwalker arcade game!
Giant monsters smashing buildings is never NOT cool (unless it’s happening to you). Reed and I play both the classic Rampage arcade game, as well as the 90s sequel “World Tour”!
The dinosaur adventure continues, as we try to save the world in Prehistoric Isle, Part 2!
In this video, I am playing StarTropics for the Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) for the first time ever! I was able to make it past the first main boss (the octopus) in Chapter 3. StarTropics is a top down action adventure game that was released in North America…
William decided that he hated his first Super Mario Bros. Challenge run. So he demanded a Redemption Run, and I decided to allow it, for sheer entertainment value. Will he beat Harold’s run, or will he fall flat on his face?
So Chris opened his big mouth, and said he could “easily” get through the original version of Double Dragon. Naturally, William and I decide to hold him to it, and so now the world gets to see JUST how much of a Double Dragon master Chris really…
With Mario out of the way, it’s time to get serious! And speaking of serious, it turns out ninjas have kidnapped the President! Are Chris and I bad enough dudes to rescue the Prez? Guess we’ll find out!
Episode 2 of Rescue Rangers is live! The jokes come twice as cheesy this time!
A game I never owned as a kid, but rented more than once, the technical “sequel” to Godzilla: Monster of Monsters on NES is a very old school, turn-based strategy game. It’s not the most exciting, or glamorous, but I loved it as a kid, and am…
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…
Time to look at another arcade classic, this time the 1981 Atari hit, Tempest!
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.
Super Joe is missing in action, but Nathan Spencer is the right Ladd for the job!
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!
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!
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!
Last Chance! It’s come down to Corey vs. Ivan, and this time…it’s personal!
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.
Shaking things up a bit, it’s time for a bit of racing action. Specifically, Ivan “Ironman” Stewart’s Super Off Road!
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!
Harold is up to bat, taking his turn at Kid Niki on NES!
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!
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).…
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.…
In today’s Game Challenge, Reed and I take on the arcade spy classic, Elevator Action!
So to help kick off the Halloween season, I decided to do a special cross-promotional video with my buddy Josh, who after a long wait, finally was able to finish and bring his new horror film community site, MidnightHorrorShow.com, up and running. We knew we wanted to…
Not satisfied with his first run, Reed decided to take a second crack at a childhood favorite of his, Burger Time!
For today’s Retro Solo episode, I take a look at Tumblepop, a 1991 #arcade hit by Data East. It’s kinda like Snow Bros., but with vacuums. Weird as hell, but hella fun.
