Metalhead Ned

“Hey, the name is Ned, but you can call me Ned. Born and raised in Grand Rapids, MI. Went to Eastern Michigan University for radio broadcasting, so I suppose it worked out for me.

I can’t get over the fact that the pop SURGE is gone, I play so many damn video games that I may steal a car and kill hookers. I play guitar, sing, and all that good crap, so chicks kinda dig me I think. My musical taste vary from Pantera to Nobuo Uematsu.

Things I enjoy: Lava lamps, I have a man crush on Dimebag Darrell, Pizza, Beavis & Butt-Head, Star Wars, Schwarzenegger movies, and anything that is claimed as “bad ass” as well.

Tune in every weekend Sat. 7-Mid/Sun. 10-3  for stuff such as a video game talk, heavy metal, and other crap that will make you stay up all night playing Super Metroid.

Get to the choppa!

Schedule

Sa 7:00 pm - 12:00 am
Su 10:00 am - 3:00 pm

Games To Try Before You Die: Blackthorne (SNES/PC/32X)

BlizzCon is coming up this year and everyone is really excited about Warcraft, Starcraft, etc. Before there was the juggernaut that was WoW or Starcraft, there was this game that Blizzard released on home consoles that just kicked ass. It hasn't been looked at for years, and if they rebooted this game, that would be pretty awesome.

Metalhead Ned’s Throwback Thursday – WGRD Pregnant Pageant

Thank you TimeHop app for making Throwback Thursday WAY easier! This is really hard to believe that this was 7 years ago. I was touring my Facebook to find out that WGRD Vet Lynae posted a TimeHop pic. I can remember this day like it was yesterday!

Has Someone Finally Created a Working Hoverboard? [Video]

For years, the dream has been to either wield a lightsaber from Star Wars and/or jump on a Hoverboard from Back to the Future 2. It's amazing how much research has gone into these things, but it seems that a step towards the future has taken place when it comes to riding a Hoverboard.

Gears of War 3 Horde is Still a Ton of Fun!

Lately I have been playing all sorts of new games. Hyrule Warriors, The Evil Within, Grand Theft Auto 5, etc. These games are fun, but my favorite game to play online was Gears of War 3. I noticed as I was looking through my recently played games, I haven't played Gears 3 for an entire year! Last night for old times sake, I dropped the disc into the tray and played some Horde Mode.

The Greatness That is Windows XP Wallpaper

I'll be honest, the first thing I did when I got my first desk job was pick a wallpaper for my computer. That is not a lie! What was it? It was 8-bit Link from the Legend of Zelda holding up the Pink Floyd: Dark Side of the Moon prism. Since then it has changed to the Super Metroid title screen, but what happens when I go to default? It goes to a green hill landscape of Windows XP. However, there are many amazing people out there that have taken that green landscape and changed it for the better.

Five Video Games That Scare Crap Out of You

Survival Horror is one of my favorite video game genres of all time. The anticipation, story, and the looming fear around every corner just attracts me to this genre more than any other game genre out there. My first Survival Horror experience was the original Resident Evil, and after that, I was stuck on getting scared.

Dive Into the Trivia of Killer Instinct [Video]

Killer Instinct was one of the most successful fighting video games of the 20th Century. I remember the first time I ever played it on my Super Nintendo. It was a lot of fun, but still didn't match up to my love for Mortal Kombat. Regardless of my like for it, fans loved this game and some even remember some of the craziest combos.

You may remember combos, but did you know how it was created?

The Evil Within is Pretty Terrifying

Last night, I finally got to try the latest entry into the survival horror genre. I have been waiting a good long while for another game like this to arrive to game consoles. Something that wasn't all shooting this and that, but a genuine experience. That is exactly what I got with The Evil Within.

JonTron Tackles Clock Tower in His Halloween Special [Video]

I don't know what it is about JonTron, but he cracks me up every time he releases a video. I have heard of the game named 'Clock Tower' many times in the past, but I never heard of the Super Famicom release ever! Thanks to JonTron through, I now know of the existence of this mediocre game.

The Legacy That is ‘Friday the 13th’ [Video]

Every time the 13th of the month lands on a Friday, people always make some sort of big deal about it. Like there is going to be some sort of bad thing that will happen on Friday the 13th. Where did all of this superstition come from? I don't know, maybe it goes deeper than what I think, but I imagine it's because of these fine horror flicks named...
