This week we test our mutant abilities as we play X-Men, the 1992 arcade classic. Just as the game is mildly controlled chaos, so is this video. We yell at each other, insult each others’ characters and laugh hysterically. Remember, folks, nothing hurts The Blob.
Honestly, I was working. It’s a long story but I was actually searching through workout sites for engineering purposes. During the process I found this. These kids seem to be having a blast. Of course they are, as they are supposedly playing DDR. I guess Konami made a classroom bundle when we weren’t looking. I wonder which kid looks at which track? So many questions…
We have been on a bit of a Yu-Gi-Oh! kick lately. So, now you can watch as I play Duel Monsters for the first time in over a year. I remember how to play, I remember what some of the cards do, but I have no idea what cards are in the deck I get. How do I put this? This battle has its ups and downs, just like Yu-Gi-Oh! Remember to believe in the heart of the cards as you watch this week’s Go Round of Yu-Gi-Oh!: The Eternal Duelist Soul for the GBA.
How many roads must a zombie walk down before you can call him a zombie? How many seas must a white ghost sail before she sleeps in the sand? How many times must the vampires fly before they are forever banned? The answer my friend, is Medusa in the wind. The answer’s Medusa in the wind. Go Round of Castlevania. Happy Halloween, everybody!
Go for the bronze with this week’s Go Round of Nagano Winter Olympics ’98 for the N64. Most people say go for the gold, but I don’t want to put unwanted pressure on y’all. Life is hard enough without some goober on the internet telling you want to do. You know what? Do whatever you want. Pay no attention to the man behind the keyboard.
Konami had hoped to get the newest 3DS Castlevania game out onto store shelves later this year. Today the company announced they will be delaying the game, for unspecified reasons, until sometime in 2013. The game, which stars Trevor Belmont, saw mixed reaction at E3. I’m interested in checking it out. I love sidescrolling Castlevania games. Looks like my vampire and ghost fix will be filled in 2013.
Alright. So on Episode 118 of the Nintendo Okie Podcast there was a big debate as to whether Castlevania II was actually good or not. Pretty much everyone on the show, with the exception of Shelby, said that it’s just a bad game. Then the forums jumped to Shelby’s defense saying it was a good game, but one of those games that was so bad that it’s good. I would agree there are games like that, but I can’t say that Castlevania II is one of those games. So our question this week is this, “What Castlevania game is your favorite?” Let us know by casting your vote below then leave us a comment telling us whether you think Castlevania II is a good game or not. I’m willing to be proven wrong on this one.

I play drums in my band. I’m not the best in the world but I get buy well enough. Or at least I think that until I see something like this. This guy lays down some awesome Contra beats. It’s starts off a little differently but I’m pretty sure your mind will be blown by the time he finishes. Keep an eye on his foot work. He uses a heal/toe method to get some insane bass drum. Other drummers may notice his kick drum and high hats are situated oddly. This is so he can achieve the heal/toe method he uses. If anyone out there knows of some other video game, drum remixes let me know. Maybe I will come up with my own one day.
