I have been admittedly stagnant on the updates here on SlickGaming, but that doesn’t mean I’m not playing, creating, or, furthermore, abandoning the ol’ blog. In fact, far from it! I’ve had my hands full with a lot of games as of late, and there are no signs of slowing down with tons of great new stuff coming in the future! Just to give a quick update (and personally allow myself to play catch up with… myself?), here’s what I’ve been spending my time on as of late. Read the rest of this entry »

Laura had a long meeting for work and I had the day off, so the only natural thing to do was hunt for video games across the South Bay Area. I ended up stopping at two GameStops I’ve never been too before, both of which proved to be fruitful ventures, as well as a couple Goodwill locations, which were not as grand as past expeditions but still worthwhile. When all was said and done Laura’s dad asked me if I played all of these games, which sadly the answer is no. But I told him I was proud of the fact most all of them were $5 or less! Anyway, here’s this weeks roundup! Read the rest of this entry »
After finding the game for just a dollar, I decided to give it a spin.
If more games were this cheap and this good, I don’t think I’d ever leave the house!
Release Date: May 25th, 2010
Purchased at: eBay (Online – $5)
Ever since I discovered this game a few months back I have been very actively trying to find myself a copy. After countless failed attempts at finding it cheap enough online, and never finding it in a brick and mortar store at all, this week I finally got my hands on a decent copy (albeit a bit scratched up). The game itself is a pirate themed side scroller reminiscient of Castle Crashers. I’ve already played a few hours of the game, and although it’s clearly not a big budget title, it has enough charm to warrant the wait and the price. There’s even an option to toggle the language between English and PIRATE! Arrr!!
Maybe it’s the curse of the collector to buy the crappiest of games and find thrill in it all, because that’s exactly what is happening right now. This week I picked up three games from Conspiracy Entertainment, arguably the worst publisher on the Wii, simply because of this infamy. If a game is terrible, maybe it’ll make for a collectible item in the future. In the near future it might even make for a fun video for this site: you never know! In direct contrast to Conspiracy’s lameness, I picked up two games from Zoo Games, which makes lesser known games, but Zoo’s games are actually decent. Outside of those, a nice DS game I found on eBay arrived this week, as well as a handful of super cheap DS games from GameStop. Overall a great week! Read the rest of this entry »
