  • Good idea, bad idea: Updating old games' textures for great justice?

    Good idea, bad idea: Updating old games' textures for great justice?

    Here’s an interesting debate that’ll help kill the remaining Friday hours. When you take an old game, upgrade its textures, increase its resolution, and, generally speaking, make it look “better,” do you lose something in the process? Is the game that you played, (presumably) that you enjoyed, now worse for wear? Read More

    Celebrating Ocarina of Time with on-sale ocarinas

    Who didn’t enjoy Ocarina of Time back in the day? Running around Hyrule on Epona, playing the ocarina… Oh, hey, speaking of ocarina! This company, the St. Louis Ocarina Store, is honoring the game’s 10th anniversary by reminding you that, you know, it sells ocarinas that look just like the Ocarina of Time. On sale, no less. The granddaddy ocarina, the 12 Hole Tenor and… Read More

    Super Mario Bros, Zelda make top 5 worst sequels list

    Ouch. MSNBC comes out swinging with Super Mario Bros. 2 and Zelda 2: The Adventure of Link making the site’s Top 5 worst video game sequels list. The three other games on the list are Driv3r, Twisted Metal III, and Bomberman: Act Zero. Maybe it’s just me, but I enjoyed Super Mario Bros. 2. Zelda 2 was okay, not great, but I wouldn’t put it in the top 5 worst sequels category. Read More

    Vintage video game themed cutting boards cut straight through to my geeky heart

    Are we as citizens ready for icons from our 8-bit pasts to make their way into our kitchens? Yes, yes we are. Take this Triforce cutting board. It’s fully usable and will remind you of your quest against Gannon every time you dice onlines. It’s sold out, but you can get your hands on a Space Invaders villian for only $125. If I was really into cutting boards, I’d get one. Read More

    CrunchArcade: 7 video game currencies 'worth' more than US dollar

    How low will the U.S. dollar sink? The answer, according to this wonderful investigative piece in Maxim (from their sidebar: “Rachel Weisz: Nobody likes a Weisz guy. A Weisz girl, however…” However, indeed!), is “pretty damn low.” No fewer than seven video game currencies are now “worth” more than the All Mighty Dollar. The rupee from Zelda; the money… Read More

    The Futurist: One (or Two) Sentence Reviews Of 18 Wii Games

    I believe in the Wii, I really do. I don’t care that it’s basically a GameCube with a white case and fancy controller. I don’t care that the graphics made the original Xbox look l33t. I just wish they would put out some decent games. And believe me, I’ve played most of them. And here’s what I think so far. And if, after reading this, it seems like… Read More

  • Older Video Game Commercials > Newer Video Game Commercials

    Now, friends, we’re playing with power. Who here remembers this old school Nintendo commercial, complete with R.O.B. and the real light gun, not this Zapper nonsense? I don’t, per se, because I was about 2-yeard-old at the time, but the point remains: video game commercials used to be so cheesily magnificent it’s a shame what they’ve become. Shall we? Read More

    Zelda: Ocarina of Time Named "Best Game of All Time" By Edge Magazine

    Edge magazine has named The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time the best game of all time. Yes, everyone hates these so-called “best” lists and many of them are created just as Digg bait nowadays, but Edge magazine, in my opinion, isn’t your typical video game magazine. It doesn’t use words like “awesome” or “super-de-dooper” to describe and… Read More

    I’m trying to like the Wii. I tried my hardest to love Super Paper Mario. But this image essentially sums up my opinion of the game, the platform, and the other games available, including Zelda. Please, Nintendo. Please. Stop it. Treat me like I have a brain. I’m so tired of “whimsical” being equated to “mythic” and “classic characters” becoming… Read More

    Zelda Nintendo DS Mod is the Best in the Whole Wide World

    OK, contest over, give this guy the Best. Mod. Ever. award. It’s a Zelda Nintendo DS mod that brings Awesome (yes, as if it were an entity that could be brought) to your hands. Painted gold with a really intricate shield on the back, the mod pretty much just made my day. It even lights up behind the shield. Back shot after the jump. Read More
