West Michigan Gaming Convention 2013 Draws the Gaming Community

I am a huge gamer. I love old school and new school video games! Gaming is the blood that runs through my veins. Recently, I have also taken an interest in Table Top Gaming too. Games like Warhammer, Magic: The Gathering, and many others. (Gimme a break, I am just finding out about these). So of course, I checked out the first annual West Michigan Gaming Convention, and it did not disappoint.

Games To Try Before You Die: Pokemon Red/Blue (Game Boy)

Where do you even begin with this game? I mean, c'mon....it's freakin' POKEMON! Back when this game came out, there were a few fans who read Nintendo Power and knew what it was all about, but it wasn't until you heard about it on the playground or word of mouth...and this simple game became an INTERNATIONAL PHENOMENON!

Games To Try Before You Die: Killer Instinct (SNES)

Fighting games were amazing back in the 90's! Just that simple 1 vs 1 formula worked so well in the arcades. We didn't have to start fight on the street, we started fights on the arcade machines. The standard for fighting games at the time was either Street Fighter II or Mortal Kombat. Button mashing punches at it's finest. Then this word came up in fight games named....COMBO!

Have a boyfriend/girlfriend/wife/husband/whatever that is a gamer? Can't quite afford the classic flowers? Box O' Chocolates? Time to break out the old gaming console (or newer console) and jam out some video games! Nothing says "I love you," more than a beating the crap out of each other in video games

Play! A Video Game Symphony… Was it Gamer Approved?

Last night, I went and checked out the Grand Rapids Symphony. Normally, I never really attend the Symphony because classical music doesn't appeal to me to much. Last night however, the DeVos Performance hall was packed with crazed gamers, young and old! Why? The symphony performed some of our favorite video game songs. Was I satisfied with it though?

PLAY! A Video Game Symphony This Tuesday!

One thing I really enjoy about video games is music. It has evolved so much over the  years from simple "chip tunes" to full fledged orchestra's! Who lives in this world and does not know the theme to Super Mario Bros.? Legend of Zelda? Halo? Not many! It has evolved so much to the point, to where you can hear this great music performed live. Guess what? You have that chance!

Games to Try Before You Die: TMNT 2-The Arcade Game (NES)

If you grew up in the late 80's and 90's, you know who the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles are. Pizza addicted turtles that happen to be ninjas. Man, cartoons were so much better in the 90's! Even though they still exist today, they are not as "rad" as they were. With their popularity, also came a Nintendo game. No...not the first one...the second one....kicked ass!

Games to Try Before You Die: Outlander (SNES/Genesis)

Mad Max is a pretty sweet movie. It was the first movie the featured a new actor straight from Australia...that actor today is Mel Gibson. The movie was about a dude who was taking revenge on a gang that killed his family, also searching for gas to fuel his car.

Then came a game that 'supposedly' had nothing to do with Mad Max, but all the similarities were there. The game though...was actually pretty kick ass!
