The Recurring Bosscast: 014: Exclusive Interview with Fake Ed Boon

I don’t know how we managed, but the Bosscast has secured an interview with Fake Ed Boon! Listen to the new episode to hear exclusive answers to questions like the forthcoming Mortal Kombat vs. NBA Jam, and the final DLC character for Injustice: Gods Among Us.

Also this week, I tell of my experiences at the Nintendo press event in San Francisco, Mat gives us a great story of a trolling gamer, and Jett passes down his knowledge of Iceland.

What to Expect from the new Legend of Zelda

Link to the Past 2 LogoWith every new Nintendo console comes a brand new Legend of Zelda. It should come as no surprise that the Big N has announced a new game starring the green-clad hero for the 3DS: the Japanese developer has been steadily releasing Zelda games for each and every one of its consoles and handhelds for over two decades. What could come as a shock to some gamers is the setting and style for the new, as yet unnamed, 3DS Zelda. The game takes place in the same Hyrule we explored on the SNES in 1992 with The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past. Read the rest of this entry »

Sunday Roundup: 4/21/13

New Games (4-21-13)Moving to California has been an adventure to say the least. We’re not entirely moved in yet, but we’re getting there. After a week of the beautiful weather, I can honestly say video games were not on my radar. But as luck would have it, I still managed to grab a few games, thanks largely to GameStop’s 50% off sale. Even with said sale I picked up some titles that weren’t on promo, but still were a good price. One I was completely shocked with too! Here’s the first haul of the new living location. And here’s hoping for many finds to come! Read the rest of this entry »

The Recurring Bosscast: 013: A Disgrace To Anyone That Has Ever Played A Video Game

Welcome to California!

This week the Bosscast goes into the memory bank and pulls out our fondest moments with LucasArts as the company is no more. This largely means we rant about Star Wars games, point-and-click adventures, and nothing in particular past 2005.

Also this week, amazingly Jett and I both played and hated with a passion the Double Dragon II: Wander of the Dragons abomination on Xbox Live.

Review: Double Dragon II: Wander of the Dragons

Double Dragon II Wander of the Dragons CoverRemaking a classic video game is tricky work. Developers have to capture the essence of the title that made it popular many years back, while updating it to fit the norms and requirements of modern video games. No matter how good the remake may be, some fans will inevitably scoff at the blasphemy the developer has bestowed upon their beloved franchise. Some of these remakes are excellent, such as 2012’s Double Dragon: Neon, a wonderful blend of cooperative combat, cheesy humor, and 80’s flair with great appeal to both old fans and new gamers. And then there are games like Double Dragon II: Wander of the Dragons that has so little in common with the source material and it’s riddled with utterly broken game design that it’s a disgrace to those that enjoyed any previous Double Dragon game.

Game Hunter’s Journal: Pricing

Wario MoneyEvery video game collector has their own reasons for collecting games. For me personally it’s the thrill of owning a great title, preserving video games as an art form, and a more personal goal of simply owning every game released on the Sega Dreamcast. No matter what your reason or reasons may be for getting into game collecting, at some point you’re going to deal with money. Dollars and cents in the game collecting hobby mean more than just how much you spent on a game: it’s also the overall value, personal value, and current selling price. Here are some tips for pricing your collection and determining the best time to buy a game. Read the rest of this entry »

Sunday Roundup: 4/7/13

New Games (4-7-13)Well folks, this is it. My very last Sunday Roundup whilst living in the wonderful state of Indiana. This coming Friday I’ll be making my move across the country to live in sunny California! Seeing as this week was the last full week I’d be in the Hoosier state, I decided to take it upon myself to go out with a bang. Well, at least in the video game collecting department. Rather than himming and hawing over a few dollars for a game, if I saw a game I wanted I just bought it. There aren’t too many great stores in the area I’m moving to in Cali, so I decided to take advantage of the wonderful selection I have here in Indiana one more time. So let’s get this thing started, shall we?
