The Recurring Bosscast: 003 – Feel Feelings

Episode 3 of the Recurring Bosscast is now live!

Due to some extenuating circumstances (i.e. having some teeth removed) we had to record the show earlier than usual. What does that mean to you? It means we’re discussing Black Friday deals AFTER Black Friday! Insanity!

Also on topic is the Wii U! Jett has picked up his new system and gushes over it’s awesomeness and making me want one desperately in the process. Also we chat it up over Zero Escape, The “Magic Price”, and console loyalty!

Also, subscribe to us on iTunes!

Review: Adventure Time: Hey Ice King? Why’d You Steal Our Garbage?!!

It’s clear that Adventure Time: Hey Ice King? Why’d You Steal Our Garbage?!! has one of the greatest subtitles of all time, but what isn’t clear is why it took the series so long to stretch Jake’s extendable legs to the world of video games. Colorful landscapes, quirky characters, and inspiration lifted from video games seem to make the Cartoon Network series a shoe-in for a successful video game transition. Paying homage to classic video games and retaining nearly everything that makes the series equal parts entertaining and ridiculous, Adventure Time: Hey Ice King is a game fans of the series will enjoy, even if it only lasts a few hours. . Even so, I ask thee this: What time is it?

REVIEW TIME!

Sunday Roundup: 11/25/12

Miss a few weeks of the Sunday Roundup and I’ve got to get back in a big way I suppose. I knew there were some great game deals out there for Black Friday at big retailers like Best Buy, Amazon.com, and Wal-Mart, but in the confusion and craziness that is the kickoff of the holiday shopping season, I completely looked past a local store that just so happens to sell video games from decades past. And did I luck out by checking their sales as well. Let’s just say that 20% off and buy 1 get 1 sales make me a happy collector!

Gaming News: 11/24/12

What happened last week? Something big… something noteworthy…

Something. Ugh, I can’t think of it.

Oh yeah! The Wii U was released, and that’s pretty much what every news piece concerning games related to this week. Still though, some stories sneaked through the Wii U dominance and caught my eye as well this week. Read the rest of this entry »

Review: Zero Escape: Virtue’s Last Reward

One of the surprise successes of 2010 was Aksys Game’s 999: Nine Hours, Nine Persons, Nine Doors, which took players on a psychological journey filled with devious puzzles, deceitful allies, and the danger of death around every corner. The follow-up to that game, Zero Escape: Virtue’s Last Reward, builds off its predecessor laurels to deliver another compelling and captivating story for gamers to experience. Though light on gameplay, Virtue’s Last Reward offers one of the most thrilling stories you’ll see in any game, handheld or otherwise.
