    Happy 34th Birthday to the NES

    Happy 34th Birthday to the NES

    In the fall of 1985, a video game console that would end up being popular to not only kids, but also adults was released. That game system was the Nintendo Entertainment System, or NES for short. Every kid on Christmas wanted one, and I have a story to tell about the NES that took place almost four years later, but before I share it, here's a fun fact about it that would surprise you. These are the three best-selling NES games:

    'Spider-Man' (Game Boy Advance Review)

    Who am I? You sure you want to know? The story of this game is not for the faint of heart. If somebody told you it was a good game, if somebody said I was your average gamer, not a care in the world… Somebody lied. But let me assure you, this, like any other game worth reviewing, is all about a movie. Spider-Man. The movie I loved since before I even liked movies. I’d like to tell you this game was good, heck I’d settle for decent. Too bad this game is the epitome of bad.

    VR Gaming

    I never thought I would be a gamer and a VR gamer at that. When I put on my VR gear, it's like stepping into a whole new world. A world where I am in the game and not just playing it. VR is fun and educational. The world of virtual reality is a good platform to learn, to train, to be entertained and chat with others. VR Chat, Rec Room, Orbus VR, Altspace and vTime XR are great tools for chatting in the VR world. There are lots of games and programs to keep you busy and entertained. Here is a picture of my Oculus Rift, which you will need a good gaming PC to use, and this model is known as a tethered device since it has to be connected to a PC.

    10 Video Game Quotes That Hit Me Hard

    I’ve been playing video games since I was a kid, back when I was filled with anxiety and had a hard time with multiplayer games. I still do have a hard time playing PUBG, even though I paid the full $30 to have it on my computer. I’ve thought about Overwatch, knowing its ranking systems and awesome story beyond team-based online gameplay could maybe fit my style a bit better. But I think it’s just the way I am—I prefer story-based games that I can enjoy at my own pace, without having to rely on others.

    Perler Bead DIY: Extra Lives from 'Contra'

    "Up, up, down, down, left, right, left, right, B, A, start:" the Konami Code that many of us recognize by heart. Contra was an NES game that I loved to play as a kid, and still do as an adult. In this article, I'm going to walk everyone through how to make extra lives from this run-and-gun game. Two months ago, I wrote a DIY article about teaching everyone how to make a block from Super Mario Bros. 3. It was the first time in almost 20 years that I've done any perler bead art.

    Google Stadia Wows at E3

    Google Stadia Wows at E3

    As a gamer, I'm always looking for new things to check out, explore, etc. E3 normally one of those events that pique that curiosity for me every year. There's always a presentation that just has that 'it' factor going for it, whether it's a game, or a console release, or maybe another console competitor altogether. This year, Google decided to make themselves known by unveiling a truly ambitious vision for the future of gaming with the Google Stadia reveal. Console-free, Cloud-based gaming isn't a new idea. Back in the day, a service called OnLive had essentially the same kind of dream; before Google even thought about stepping out into these cloud gaming streets, the folks at OnLive had the bright idea to stream games of all types for a subscription price. Of course, this was in the very infancy of cloud computing, so the dream of cloud gaming was still kind of like an unexplored country of sorts. OnLive's time in the spotlight was short-lived, as the company was eventually bought out by Sony entertainment, but their early foray into the promise of cloud gaming was a glimpse into a truly different direction for gaming. Fast forward to over a decade later. We're seeing a re-birth to the concept of truly console-free gaming (and some say the return of the spirit of OnLive) with Google's announcement of their ambitious vision for gaming with Google Stadia. Google had already been seriously exploring the idea of streaming and containing games within their cloud infrastructure with the beta program Google Stream prior to Stadia's introduction at E3. Check out the Connect E3 presentation below:

    Top 10 Jump Scares in Video Games

    Top 10 Jump Scares in Video Games

    We, as a species, are pretty strange. We're strange because we like being scared for the sake of being scared when experiencing a thriller flick or survival horror story. Being scared gives us that strange burning sensation in our chests, and adrenaline rush that we can't acquire from an extreme sport or cheap drug. Whether it's from watching a horror movie alone at night or playing through a survival campaign on the most intense difficulty available; fear always manages to channel its way in through the media cord and rattle our bodies to the very core.

    Portable 'Overwatch'? How Does Blizzard Switch It up from Console and PC?

    I've been a regular player of Overwatch since mid-2017 and I've racked up over 1000 hours during my many triumphs and even more failures. Since the game is over three years old, and has arguably been losing popularity over the last year, along with Blizzard's recent controversy over the Hong Kong protests, the transition of Overwatch into the world of handheld gaming couldn't have been at a more inopportune time.

    PS4 Exclusives that Crushed the Xbox One

    PS4 Exclusives that Crushed the Xbox One

    As we enter the final greatest hits era of the current-gen consoles, I think it's fair to say we've seen some magnificent titles over the last five years. And that even goes out to Microsoft, too. Because as much as I'd like to fangirl over the idea that Sony produces the superior exclusives, I can also vouch for Xbox and some of their golden titles, too. But sadly, as I look back over the years and try to shove back the biased opinion over the two consoles, I still always manage to come to the same conclusion. And that is that Playstation just has better games overall. I'm sorry if that offends certain players, and I bloody know it more than likely will.Yes, I've played Forza. Yes, I've played Gears of War. But do those two or three good experiences make up for the handfuls of stunning journeys I've encountered with the PS4 exclusives? No, I'm afraid not. Because Sony knows how to make a good game, and once they produce gold, they strike it and milk that mine for all it's worth.So let's take a look at some of the most memorable and successful PS4 exclusives to date, and should you be in a position to choose between consoles, perhaps this will whet your appetite for the better choice! *wink wink*It's not too late to switch sides, Microsoft fans. There's plenty of PS Exclusives for you to get your hands on. And when the time finally arrives where you can pick up current-gen consoles for bargain prices, hopefully, you'll know what to do.Allow me to enlighten you.I present to you, PS4 EXCLUSIVES THAT CRUSHED THE XBOX ONE.

    'World of Warcraft Classic'

    If you haven't heard of World of Warcraft Classic, let me be the first to welcome you to the old school MMO that sucked the lives out of everyone playing it. WoW Classic is just as it's labeled. Going back to the original game before all the expansions, streamlined content, easy combat, and leveling. Shed all of the fat and go back to the cut and dry World of Warcraft. To be honest the original recipe is my cup of tea. WoW Classic brings you back to when you actually had to read quest to find your destination; you have to put in the time and effort to learn and craft a character that you are on this adventure with. Nothing is given, you have to earn it. So far I am ten hours in. I have a level ten dwarf hunter. Just a little perspective of the time that you will need to put into the game to achieve what you want in it. Now let's dive into this.

    Why Are Idle Dating Sims So Much Fun?

    Why Are Idle Dating Sims So Much Fun?

    So, this is an interesting article to conjure up, but it’s one that I felt was worth talking about. I’ve found myself being increasingly drawn to this style of gameplay, and the main reason I find it interesting to talk about is because I hate the whole aspect of the idly clicking away at a game for hours component. This brings me to a very useful reason for writing this article and that is that by justifying my own reasons for playing these types of games, despite previously said disinterest in the main aspect of the game, I might be able to convince other people who share a similar aversion to idle click nonsense as me to try out these games as well.

    It's been a while since I wrote a video game review for my website, Anthony's Film Review. After all, my primary focus is movies, as the name implies. Any other medium that is visual and movie-like is on my radar less frequently, and is therefore something I write about less often. Still, when I do come across something that is not a movie but similar in a way, and is worth talking about for whatever reason, I will take the time to pour out my thoughts on it, the same way I would with the movies I watch. I say this because the video game I am about to review is not just one of the best ever, but also one that virtually erases the line between movies and video games (and, for that matter, the line between fiction and reality).

    How to Build Bronn in 'The Pathfinder RPG'

    Bronn, or to give his full title by the end of the series Ser Bronn of the Blackwater, is one of the only notable common born characters in the Song of Ice and Fire book series by George R. R. Martin. A garden-variety sell-sword, Bronn entered the service of Tyrion Lannister, and through their adventures managed to raise himself to knighthood. Despite being a knight, and eventually marrying into a title, Bronn is a selfish, black-hearted bastard with no pity or mercy in him, who fights using a combination of viciousness and guile. That's why Tyrion kept him around, after all. And if that's the sort of character you're looking to bring to your next Pathfinder game, this guide should get you started.

What we tend to gloss over, though, is the fact that George was a stone-cold badass. A man who preferred the sound of bullets slicing past his head to silence, and who regularly stood in front of hundreds of his enemies' guns with shoulders back and chest out, Washington was a man who led from the vanguard.

    Super Nintendo or Playstation 2?

    When it comes to what was the best system of all time, it usually comes down to 2. There is the Super Nintendo and the Playstation 2 (though a lot of people would argue n64 should be on the list). Both are great systems that deserve the title but we are here to pick one. I will give my vote at the end but let me know what you think. And for your vote you cannot include PS 1 games on the backwards compatible PS 2. It has to be based solely on Playstation 2 titles (but don't worry there are a lot of them).
