In the third round between the Atlanta Hawks and Washington Wizards in the 2017 NBA Playoffs, viewers may have been surprised to see Mario from Super Mario Bros. 3 around the shoulder of Hawk, Mike Muscala. It sparked an unlikely conversation between announcers Ian Eagle and Greg Anthony.
First released on November 18, 2012, the Wii U always had a difficult task to overcome. And while the console was deemed a failure since its inception, there was one thing Nintendo learned during the lifespan of its ill-fated console: The perfect marriage of music and gameplay.
Whats up! I missed my original April live stream date, sorry. I’m going to stream a few things today, starting with Overwatch. I will move on and stream some Persona 5 and will also try to fit in some Call of Duty Infinite Warefare and Titanfall 2, both titles from 2016 I really enjoyed. If I’m up for it I might try…
Welcome to the beginning of a brand new saga of Spacemon, the tale of a Pokemon TRPG campaign! This is a spinoff of the sci-fi space epic played using the Pokemon Tabletop United (PTU) system, this time GMed by yours truly. You can get caught up the entire Spacemon saga here!

After a long winter, this new adaption of Berserk is back! My brief impressions of episodes 13-15 are fairly similar to my feelings on the series as I left it last September. I’ve not been impressed by the execution of the animation from either the CG or traditionally drawn variety. It still seems choppy to me, like…
Alien Swarm, a top down shooter which took a unique and more hardcore spin on the Left 4 Dea formula, recently dropped an update, or a sequel, or something yesterday on the Steam Store Page under the name Reactive Drop. If you haven’t bothered checking it out before, then you should definitely check it out now.
Two games of interest come out next week. Two I already happen to own on other systems and yet I’m still considering purchasing them. Why?
Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, children of all ages I am proud to announce that I have an exclusive unveiling regarding an item in this month’s Loot Anime crate. One might say it is a colossal reveal, if you will. So for those of you who would like to keep their looting experience completely unspoiled, avert…
For months and months, people I know in the gaming scene pestered me to get into Hearthstone. They talked about the depth of strategies, and of the numerous cards to collect, both points that they knew full well appealed to me. For months and months, though, I resisted. My main concern was the same as most other…
Gwent - Closed Beta Blip: I was given three codes from CD Projekt Red for the Gwent Closed Beta. I am a big fan of Gwent so I’d really like to give these away to anyone who wants to get in the closed beta. Let me know in the comments. Of course first come first served. Everyone who plays in the closed Beta gets a…

It’s no secret that the Nintendo Switch hasn’t had a flood of games being released since its launch in early March. You can take this fact any number of ways, but I choose to view it as a good thing, as I’d rather see developers take their time on titles rather than rush out a bevy of uninspired ports or…
With the release of Mario Kart 8 Deluxe for the Switch, it’s a good time to revisit the whacky and winding tracks that make the go-karting series so iconic.

seen ARMS a couple of times and I’m stoked for this game. It’s no Splatoon in
my eyes, but still looks like a real Nintendo game. Fun, flashy, colourful and
full of character. But something came to me when looking at the latest Nintendo
Direct, I think I can deduce how this game came about in it’s entirety.
Going into Horizon Zero Dawn, I had no idea what to expect. Guerrilla Games has always been known as the Killzone team, and Horizon Zero Dawn was the developers first attempt to making an open-world game.
I can’t talk about good fighting game music without mentioning the famous Tekken series, one of Bandai Namco’s most famous IPs to ever hit the gaming industry.
