Countdown: My New Years Resolutions 2017

2016 was a terrible year for many, myself included thanks to having something of a mental breakdown, resulting in me essentially sitting out most of the year. I’m fairly positive that I didn’t adhere to any of my resolutions from last year so this year is going to be an especially fresh start. I’ve got 12 resolutions this year (yeah, that’s a lot) but I’ve got a whole year to do them! These are my New Years Resolutions for 2017!

Countdown: My New Years Resolutions 2016

A new year, a new chance to hit a metaphorical reset button and change yourself for the better. For the most part, 2015 for me was fairly uneventful but better than 2014. I managed to keep most of my New Year Resolutions from last year and now I have a relatively fresh new list of resolutions for this year. Here are my five New Years Resolutions for 2016.

The Sega Dreamcast Buyer’s Guide

Are you psyched for Shenmue 3? Did you contribute to the kickstarter? Do you desperately want to look for some sailors? Then you must have played the original Shenmue back in the day, right? RIGHT!? No? YOU FAKER! YOU LIAR! YOU…are not alone. Shenmue was a Sega Dreamcast exclusive and not many people got a Dreamcast back in the day. Most people waited for the PlayStation 2, leaving the poor Dreamcast out in the cold. But NO MORE! We need to right a wrong that’s been left unchanged for too long! YOU, my friend, NEED TO BUY A DREAMCAST! And I’m going to help you. So pull up a seat, maybe something to drink and eat (maybe…tacos), and take notes as I let you know everything you need to know before you buy a Sega Dreamcast.

Countdown: Top Five Tony Hawk Games

Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 5 is now available, after over five years without a new entry in the once widely successful Tony Hawk franchise of games. Reviews aren’t quite out for the game yet but um…

ZWmvbE9

Yeah. So I thought I would reminisce about the Tony Hawk games that didn’t do, well, whatever the hell is happening above this paragraph. The games that I spent hours on as I tried to land the perfect trick, collect all of the SKATE letters, and reach hidden areas, usually with a two minute time limit. So here is my list of the five best Tony Hawk games. As always, this is my personal opinion and it’s based on aggregate scores or other opinions. This is based on what I’ve played and what I enjoyed more.

Old School: Almost Leaving Video Games

On a recent episode of the Kinda Funny Gamescast, a question for the cast was if they ever walked away from video games, if any of them had ever stopped playing video games for an extended period of time. I thought I’d give my answer to this question because there was a time when I almost left video games entirely.

Game Pitch: Primal Rage: New Urth

This is an idea that I’ve been sitting on for some time now. I’ve always wondered what a new Primal Rage would look like and after thinking about this for what feels like a year, I’ve come up with a relatively simple idea, mostly due to one factor: the game needs to be a reimagining of the first game.

Countdown: Top 5 Most Anticipated Games of 2015

Countdown Top 5 Anticipated Games

2015 is off to a pretty decent start. I haven’t been able to play every major new release but I’ve played a few smaller games here and there. One of my more anticipated games has actually already come out, Ori and The Blind Forest. Check out the next Gaming Landscape for my final thoughts on that game. However, with the first quarter of the year now behind us and a better idea of what the rest of the year is going to entail, I thought I’d give my top five anticipated games of 2015. These are my own picks, of course, so if you’re most anticipated game isn’t on this list, that’s probably because you aren’t me. With that said, lets talk about some (hopefully) cool games!

Game Pitch: Marvel vs. Capcom 4 Dream Lineup

1497374This is going to be a more casual game pitch because I was just thinking about what characters I would like from a new Marvel vs. Capcom game, if Capcom were to get the Marvel license again. There were over 50 characters in Marvel 2 and there weren’t nearly enough characters in Marvel 3 so Marvel 4 would have to be not just bigger than Marvel 2 but bigger than what Marvel 3 should have been. So I have a list of 100 characters, 50 from each company, I would like to see. It was surprisingly easy.
