Super Mario 64 Remade in HD [Video]

Super Mario 64 is one of the best games ever made, at least in my opinion that is.

It has stellar platforming, fun game play, and changed how 3-D games would be made from that point forward. It was also the first Nintendo 64 video game that I ever owned.

Over the years, the graphics have not aged well and there is always a possibility of an HD remake right?

Check Out Three Days Grace’s Full Performance in Brazil [Video]

I have always liked Three Days Grace.

You're not going to get shredding craziness like Dimebag Darrell or Eddie Van Halen, but you will get some cool head-banging riffs from guitarist Barry Stock.

With its upcoming album Human featuring new lead vocalist Matt Walst, the guys are touring pretty hard core.

Check out this full concert performance of the guys performing in Brazil!

Mission Accomplished in Pilotwings on Episode 6 of ‘This Level Sucks’ [Video]

I have always loved this game as a kid, and I still do as an adult. Pilotwings is kind of the classic video game for my SNES, as it was a launch title for the system.

However, for the years I have played it, I have never actually beaten the video game.

There is one level in this game that is just insanely frustrating, and there are no second chances.
