First Game Recording

January 25, 2013


Still working out some kinks…like the audio syncing issue. But this is me playing on a real SNES, no emulator stuff here.

It’s no mystery that I like video games and those who know me also know that I am a big Iron Man fan. With that out of the way I present to you my first ever custom video game console:

The SNES Mark I

Minor Upkeep

June 16, 2012

I went through and fixed some issues I noticed — nothing too major. I added a few games that I missed for one reason or another and some small corrections. It’s all itemized on the list below.

  • Added “Tennis” (NES) to The Grand List.
  • Added “Deus Ex: Invisible War” (XBOX) to The Grand List.
  • Added “Excitebots: Trick Racing” (Wii) to The Grand List.
  • Corrected a label typo for “Vagrant Story” (PS1)
  • Corrected a label typo for “Twisted Metal 4” (PS1)
  • “Mario Party 6″(GCN) was incorrectly labeled as “Mario Party 7” and has been fixed. (The image was correct)
  • “Goof Troop” (SNES) has been renamed to “Disney’s Goof Troop” and alphabetized accordingly.
  • “Super Return Of the Jedi” (SNES) has been moved to the correct alphabetical location.
  • The image of “The Legend of Spyro: A New Beginning” (DS) was incorrect and has been fixed.

  • Kojima On The Rise

    March 18, 2011

    Recently, Hideo Kojima has been ascending my list of favorite game developers. This doesn’t mean much considering I don’t actually have a list to begin with…I’m sure that would make for an interesting blog post, however.

    For those of you who don’t know who Hideo Kojima is, he is the man behind the entire Metal Gear series and touched upon some lesser known series such as Zone of the Enders and the latest Castlevania game (Lords of Shadows).

    Here’s to you, Hideo Kojima!

    My Sincerest Apologies for the Lack of Posts

    March 15, 2011

    I’m not sure who I’m apologizing to…maybe Mitch…Josh might wander on here occasionally, I’m not too sure.

    Anyway, I haven’t posted anything in awhile and it’s because I’ve been busy with other stuff.

    Having said that you should all be looking forward to a long overdue gigantic Grand List Update very soon.

    Upgrades For Everyone!

    February 12, 2011

    First off, I’m indifferent to announce that Seafoam Islands now has twitter account that you can follow here or you can look at the Twitter feed on the right sidebar.

    Also, I’ve been working on upgrading The Grand List which has turned out to be an incredibly time consuming task. You can see the upgraded list(s) by scrolling all the way to the bottom of The Grand List and clicking on any of the consoles. It’s a little sloppy but it’s just tentative.

    The Problem With My Blog…

    February 8, 2011

    This is my blog though you wouldn’t be able to tell by reading the few articles I write. Both the general lack of articles as well as the quality I put forth in writing them make this fact evident.

    My review of Kid Icarus comes to mind above all others. I wrote that when the goal of the Weekly Review was to be a very short but precise summary of my feelings towards a game.

    Let me be blunt — I hated writing that review and it shows. Instead of describing any pertinent gameplay elements I merely mentioned that it was “Nintendo hard”. The entire review feels like 3 paragraphs of filler that I wrote more out of obligation to the blog than genuine interest in video games. I don’t disagree with the score I gave Kid Icarus, just the manner in which I wrote the review.

    I followed Kid Icarus with a review of “You’re in the Movies” at the behest of a friend. This review has been the most enjoyable to write despite being one of the worst games I’ve played in some time. The review felt more personal as I was more direct with own disdain toward many of its shortcomings, which resulted in a review that was not as dry and witless as the one before it.

    I can only hope that as I continue this blog I inject more charisma into my reviews and articles lest I fail to find inspiration in my own writing and quit the whole thing outright.
