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.

Yes, There Is a Star Fox Coffee [Video]

Star Fox is one of the most cherished Nintendo video games of all time. When it was first released on the Super Nintendo, it dazzled gamers with polygon graphics. It really hit home when the Nintendo 64 version came around though.

Along with it, was the numerous references you can make to the game, especially one liners.

Now, thanks to the Kickstarter backers GR8Bit Live! has expanded from small concert to concert and video game convention!

The Most Intense Game of NBA Jam Ever [Video]

Playing NBA Jam on Sega Genesis is still one of the funnest things that I do with friends. For pretty much my entire life, I played only 2 player games with my friend Jon. Until we discovered the 4 player adapter later in life that allowed 4 players to play on screen.

If you think Halo or Call of Duty is crazy fun, you haven't played NBA Jam 4 Player on Sega Genesis.

The Gaming Historian Goes in Depth on History of Video Games [Video]

I think I watch more YouTube videos than I do actual TV show and movies these days.

I find myself watching anything from JonTron, Angry Video Game Nerd, Nostalgia Critic, Clueless Gamer with Conan O' Brien and so many more.

What these all have in common is they all have something to do with video gaming.

Something I really enjoy a lot about these is when they give a little back story of how the game came to be before they go into the review. I think I finally found a YouTuber that excels in the back story part.

Metalhead Ned Goes Back in Time for ‘This Level Sucks’ Episode 3 [Video]

The Back to the Future video game on NES is well known for its legendary awful game play and alienation of source material.

The Back to the Future movies trilogy is one of the most beloved film series of all time.

However, when it comes to its video games, these are sub-par games -- especially on the original Nintendo.

ToeJam & Earl to Make an Indie Return, Needs Your Help [Video]

In the early '90's, a very strange video game by the name of Toejam & Earl came out for Sega Genesis. You played as either ToeJam or Earl, or played 2 player Co-op and played as ToeJam & Earl. Through it's crazy exterior, it is one of the funnest games of all time!

The first game garnered 2 sequels, and has been missing from the gaming landscape for a long time.

Now, the original creator and his team is looking for your help to create a new game, faithful to the original!

Metalhead Ned Tackles Earthworm Jim 2 in Episode 2 of ‘This Level Sucks’ [Video]

I really like the game Earthworm Jim 2!

However, a few nights ago, I remembered that the last level was pretty difficult.

The funny thing about this level is that I can beat it, but it takes me a decent amount of tries.

Can I repeat history?

Star Fox (SNES) is Dated but Still Fun [Video]

Crazy to think that Star Fox for SNES is over 20 years old! When this game came out, my mind was blown. The 3D polygon graphics from the Super FX chip were things to marvel at.

However, if you show this game to anyone today, it's considered extremely dates and looks likes crap. While I do agree that the graphics are nothing exciting today, at one point in 1993, they were top of the line.
