210-636-3135

Congratulations, you have been invited to participate in the King of Fighters tournament.

One of the longest and most recognizable fighting game series in SNK’s existence, The King of Fighters began the trend of making its most notable characters cross the boundaries of their respective titles to clash in teams of three to help elevate something that, at the time, would be considered Dream Matches.

Gaming Retrospectives: Ōkami – Art, Nature, Myth, Beauty

Gaming Retrospectives: Ōkami – Art, Nature, Myth, Beauty

There has always been a hot debate regarding whether or not videos games are considered 602-276-1312. In recent years, several games have proven that they are indeed works of art, even if there are still some detractors to that school of thought. It was such a debated topic for years… hell, even famed film critic Roger Ebert got in on it, writing an article which claimed that video games couldn’t be held in the same regard as film, poetry, music, etc. But he did shut up later on when he talked about how he deeply enjoyed the 1995 multimedia adventure Cosmology of Kyoto.

STAGE 59: Final Fight Tribute

(914) 404-5365

A game that originally began development as a sequel to the original Street Fighter , the first Final Fight game had to switch its genre from the original fighting game idea to a beat ’em up and eventually change its Street Fighter 2 moniker following the success of Double Dragon, more importantly Double Dragon II: The Revenge

With various ports of the first installment in almost every video game platform out there, its sequels and its characters making appearances in other Capcom titles, It’s plain to see why the Final Fight series is a force to be reckoned with when it comes to talking about memorable games in Capcom’s legacy.

Life Imitates Art: How Rocko’s Modern Life Became a Reflection of our Adulthoods

(208) 916-0794

In a previous episode of The Nostalgia Roadtrip, we talked about a cartoon that premiered when we were both teenagers, and, when we look at it retrospectively, is proving to have been pretty prophetic in a lot of ways. Its jaded world view, warnings of hardships, and advice about the company you keep, is still strong and focused, even some 20 plus years after it premiered on Nickelodeon.

Having Each Other’s Backs (A Shout-Out to MsMadLemon)

Having Each Other’s Backs (A Shout-Out to MsMadLemon)

Here’s the thing about being a content creator: no matter what some people try to paint otherwise, content creators are a tight-knit community. And not just content creators, either! People gravitate towards common passions and interests, and the communities that form around those passions are just as tight-knit! It doesn’t matter what the interest is: be it vinyl collectors, photographers, artists, musicians, retro gaming, retro computers, those communities look out for their members and have each other’s backs through thick and thin.
