Them Nintendo Boys is at it Again

Posted in Videos! with tags , , , on 01/03/2017 by Taylor

Starting things off simple and short. Just like the attention span of the common Nintendo player.

Just kidding. I love Nintendo and they’ve always got legacy, I just get confused at what the point is when it comes to designing the console itself. I just want to play the new game, I don’t need a light-up cord that tells me my hot pockets are ready and my Mountain Dew has been chilled to perfection.

Oh, it’s cordless now? Great, what will I hang myself with?

Stop Calling Yourself A “Gamer”

Posted in Videos! with tags , , , on 08/22/2016 by Taylor

Athletes have the prestige of being athletic (at least if they’re worth anything on the field) while people good enough can go onto be professional athletes. Good for them.

So-called “gamers” have the prestige of…gaming? It doesn’t really carry the same tune to it and there’s no reason to fight for change on this so let’s just drop it. Uh, yes, playing is fun and it can easily get competitive without going professional but it’s not a way to describe yourself. Play all you want, but you’ve got a lot more going for you than to be defined by “gaming.”

I’m a Ghost, ‘Metal Gear Survive’ Killed Me

Posted in Videos! with tags , , , on 08/18/2016 by Taylor

Snake? Snake? SNAAAA- Yep, he’s dead. But that won’t stop Konami from digging up his grave and sucking the juicy nanomachines from his bones. AND cashing in on that sweet clone blood, if you know what I mean. And I think you do.

Just give me a cardboard box to hide in, I’m done.

MBTI: Colonel Volgin- ENTJ

volgin1In the footsteps of Magneto, Loki, and plenty of other villains that have just got to have it all, Colonel Yevgeny Borisovitch Volgin is one apple that didn’t fall far from the tree. And he is one ruthless, sadomasochistic apple.

Since the villain makes the hero, it should be pretty clear how Big Boss got to be as awesome as he is. Look who he had to go through. Volgin in a supervillain in a world where very select few gain the kind of power he had, but y’know what they say about absolute power… Man, I have I used that line before? Power-hungry guys are all so similar… Continue reading

Mild Spoilers Ahead!

We’ve all been there, whether we recognized it or not. That guy or girl we stare down through the crowd. It’s like something out of a Coldplay music video except that you hate each other. Well, that’s what we’re talking about today. Josh and Taylor are going over some of the greatest rivalries to ever grace the screen (or page). That and the pronunciation of “butting heads.” Continue reading

The Snake-Captain Connection: Profound Similarities Between Metal Gear and The Winter Soldier

Spoilers to both The Metal Gear Series and The Winter Soldier Movie.

This should probably be my last Winter Soldier-related article but what can I say? When a movie is good, it’s going to stick with you.

But while watching the film, it could be helped to notice several things sticking out as…familiar.

What do you mean Taylor? This story was completely original! You can LEAVE AMERICA if you don’t like it!

No, no…it’s not that I didn’t like it, this latest Marvel movie is the best in the series by far. But I have suspicions that another super soldier has already been through a similar predicament. Continue reading

Of all the arcade games I’ve ever played growing up, Rampage! was my favorite. You picked your giant monster, be it a lizard, a gorilla or a wolf. Then you would proceed to destroy as much of the city as you could before the military destroyed. Reversing this concept is the in-film video game of Fix-It Felix Jr., where the player’s goal is to fix the apartment building that a over-sized hobo is destroying it. It’s one of the many aspects of the movie that will have viewers reminiscing of their days at the arcade while the smooth animation and usual kid-friendly adult joke combine to create a movie that’s not only fun, but gives a message that is normally the exact opposite of what we’re usually given in movies, especially animation.

I’ll get to that in a second. Continue reading
