Nintendo Direct Unleashes TONS of NEW Info for Super Smash Bros. WiiU/3DS

One thing that I think would sell a lot more Nintendo WiiU's, is if they finally bring out a Super Smash Bros. game! When someone mentions a new Smash Bros. game, money basically pours out of wallets. I played Smash Bros. Brawl so much in College, we got an achievement for playing over 500 hours. People have been wondering, where is this new game? What's going to be new about it? What's so great? Nintendo FINALLY has some answers.

Games To Try Before You Die: Mega Man X3 (SNES)

I love the Blue Bomber! Who doesn't honestly? He's freakin' MEGA MAN! I do love the old Mega Man games for NES, but Mega Man X was way better in my opinion. When you pop Mega Man X into your SNES, it's a roller coaster ride! The first one was amazing, the second one was just as good, so why stop there? Better make another one that is just as good! Good luck finding it though...

Final Fantasy Music on Piano is Epic [Video]

They call me Metalhead Ned, which means that I listen to metal 24 hours a day right? That is true yes, but only partially. For me to only listen to ONE type of music doesn't allow me to expand my mind that much. Remember, I am quite the video game nerd. Today, I have been jamming out A LOT of piano music...specifically Nobuo Uematsu.

Games To Try Before You Die: Earthbound (SNES)

I own a lot of video games, and I love each one of them! Nowadays, I am more of a 'video game historian' than really a 'player.' There is a game that I own that I never thought that I would own in my life, because it costs a lot of money. I amazingly received it as a Wedding Present from my previous employer and I had never played it before. It's a quirky but fun game.

Like a Good Video Game Myth? Check Out ‘Pop Fiction’ [Video]

I watch Internet videos more than I do actual TV, mostly because I don't have cable or satellite.The reason internet vids are better for me is because I can pick EXACTLY what I want to watch, and I have learned more from internet vid's than I ever have in a TV show. Gametrailers.com has a unique show that delves into video game myths, some of which have existed for more than 20 years.

ToeJam & Earl is One Strangely Awesome Game [Video]

 

Sega Genesis was always considered the 'big boys' gaming console back in the 90's. With it's sleek black look, shiny exterior, and balls to wall games...Super Nintendo was just a babies toy (I beg to differ...) I was fortunate to own both of these game consoles growing up, but played my SNES more. There was a game I played quite a bit on Sega though, and that was the strange game known as ToeJam & Earl.

Metalhead Ned’s Latest Gaming Find [Video]

Collecting video games can be a very expensive hobby, especially when you start to find the games that are rare. Sometimes you can find a game that cost only .49 and then you come across a game that is around $200! I found a game at a gaming store that I have wanted for some time, and it did cost me a little bit.

The Search for ‘E.T’ Game Carts to Continue in New Mexico [Video]

This is always a story that has fascinated me, for no real reason. All it really is, is a story about a company dumping massive amounts of product into a landfill. However, it's really the cove-up that's the interesting thing about it. This story has garnerd so much interest, that a small film company has been granted and 'excavation' permit to find the games!

They Just Don’t Make Video Game Commercials Like The Old Days

Before there was the internet, we had to find out about new video games through either newspaper ads, magazines, and especially TV. Watching children's television in the 90's was always entertaining. Besides watching your cartoons, the real awesomeness started when the commercials came on.
