The Recurring Bosscast: 017: Brotherly Love and the Super Nintendo

Hot off the heels of the reveal of the Xbox One, the Bosscast returns with another brand new episode!

This week Jett, Mat, and I are talking about the Super Nintendo and why it’s Jett’s favorite console of all time! You may have heard of some of the games on the console: Super Mario World, Super Metroid, Super Mario Kart, … a lot of “Supers”. We each pick our “Sleeper” hits on the SNES as well. I’m positive after this episode you’ll want to play SNES as bad as we all did!

Review: Anomaly 2

Anomaly 2 TitleIt was only two years ago that we were first shown just how fun a reverse tower-defense game could be with the release of Anomaly: Warzone Earth. Building mobile units to travel through a battlefield destroying powerful alien structures instead of defending stationary towers was a novel idea that gave the tower-defense genre a new layer of gameplay. With the release of Anomaly 2, 11 bit studios expands upon the “tower-offense” idea of the first game by adding a new transformation ability to the mix as well as a brand new storyline and deployable units to experience.

Vault Play: Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney

Phoenix Wright Ace Attorney ArtNearly five years have passed since we took on the role of Phoenix Wright, the up-and-coming defense attorney that shook the legal world back in 2005 on the Nintendo DS (2001 on the Game Boy Advance in Japan). Only a few months back we were graced with the announcement of a brand new Ace Attorney game from Capcom. Though Phoenix held his own in the fighting ring a la Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3, getting back in the courtroom is where he’s most comfortable; cross-examining witnesses, finding contradictions, and spouting out catchphrase after catchphrase.

The Recurring Bosscast: 016: Xbox One and Dog of Duty: Bark Ops

The Bosscast is back with a special episode discussing the reveal of Microsoft’s Xbox One!

Mat, Jett, and I thrown down our thoughts about the games (or lack there of), tech behind the console, and even the design choice of the box itself. There’s some positives and a lot of negatives from a group of gamers that feel left behind as Microsoft moves forward.

Gut Reaction to the Xbox One Reveal

Xbox One SystemFollowing the announcement of the successor to the Xbox 360 known as the Xbox One, reactions have been a jumbled collection of excitement, speculation of the future, questions about what was seen and what wasn’t seen, and a sense of wonder about the whole thing. So in other words, job well done to Microsoft for getting the community talking about their next box.

From a gamer’s standpoint however, I’m not entirely sure I’m on board at all with the Xbox One. My gut reaction is telling me to wait this thing about and see what the Xbox One delivers in the future, but as of right now there’s some questions I want answered. Read the rest of this entry »

Sunday Roundup: 5/19/13

New Games (5-19-13)Special thanks go out this week to JJ I met over at Splitkick. He pointed me toward a special 25% off sale at the game store eStarland (who also have a dated looking website to order games).

I went nuts.

On top of that, I picked up a few games off Craigslist that I’ve been looking to purchase for years. Seriously, years! And each of them were fantastic prices. Read on, as there are quite a few games this week to browse.
