Poke-Ball

0

I remember 23 years ago when Pokemon Red and Blue came out.  I remember playing it on this long Thanksgiving weekend.  My brother and I didn’t know what we were doing, but we were having a blast.  We only had one Gameboy at the time (the giant OG one) so we had to take turns … Continued

The Video ends when Mario Dies

0

Sadly over the last dozen years I’ve moved away from Nintendo games and products and gravitated towards Halo.  I still have a special place in my heart for the big N, but I just don’t have the time for their things anymore.  I’ve played Mario Maker, and watched my friends people play some of the … Continued

VR Mario Kart

0

I gotta say, I never really was a fan of the Virtual Reality games and ideas.  But watching this side by side video of what the user sees, and how they have to interact with the game to play, I like it. A lot.  Is it practical for home use, not a chance.  Would I … Continued

Rt. 1

0

An intrepid designer built Route 1 from the original Pokemon games (possibly from Gold/Silver, not Red/Blue).  I like the various touches of trainers, and “wild” Pokemon that appear throughout the level. Pokemon was something of a revolution back in the day.  I remember my first time I beat the Elite Four.  I was so nervous … Continued

The Art of the Title Screen

0

I may have posted about Naked Jakey before, or I may not have.  I’m too bothered to look up my usual post history.  I found him with his Halo Changed Everything video series. In the above, he goes over the under appreciated world of Video Game title screens.  Seriously, how often do you pay attention … Continued

Halo meets Zelda

0

I’ve posted quite a bit of DIY maps forged in Halo 5 that blend the chaos of some classic Halo matches, with other universes.  This one is pretty neat, if just alittle uninspiring in terms of unique elements.  It’s really just a room with some Zelda Themed wall decorations.  Granted, that’s all Griffball maps are, … Continued

Secrets of Super Mario 64

0

With the advent of emulators, and being able to mess around with the underlying game code we’re able to learn all sorts of new interesting stuff about games.  I also find it interesting that people spend the time to dissect the game to find these little inconsistencies. One such person is YouTube user UncommentatedPannen, he’s … Continued

Ash’s House

0

Well, it looks like it anyway.  Instagram user Pixelized Creations made this really dang good representation of the generic house from Pokemon complete with a garden, and Ash battling Gary. What’s even better, and somewhat hard to tell from the above angled photo is that it’s a 3-D representation of the scene.  The monochrome colors … Continued

IRL Mario Kart

0

This week is a plethora of re-creating childhood memories in real life.  Next up is the classic game of Mario Kart.  Go Karting is nothing new, power ups are sorely lacking from the experience however.  Four students of Colorado State University’s mechatronics class, Alex Zenk, Katie Johnson, Floyd Bundrant, and Jacob Gover decided to make … Continued

Pokemon Go

0

Yea, fine, shut up I’m alittle late on this post, but I was in Alaska, and I love Mr. Bean so you’re getting this post now.  Deal with it.  That being said, I’ve been playing Pokemon Go (as has the rest of the world my age), and it’s really fun, hopefully they make it easier … Continued
