MOVIE: Everybody Walk the Dinosaur - Super Mario Bros. (1993)

Super Mario Brothers has one of the longest lasting history in video games, but what happens when Hollywood decides to turn it into a movie? Let's find out...

REVIEW: Zany Fun - WarioWare: Smooth Moves (2007)

What can I say about WarioWare: Smooth Moves? It was crazy, outlandish and down right fun. Playing this through the first time in single player, I about peed my pants every time a new position was shown. This game is probably the best collection of mini games that Nintendo put together for the Wii. Let's get this party started with the review!


From the videos and pictures on Reddit I thought MineCraft was the silliest game I've ever heard of. Why would you want to build things? The structures that were made looked awesome. It would take so much time to build the Starship enterprise! What person in their right mind would sit and do that?

REVIEW: Turducken to Touchdowns - The Madden Football Anthology

Sports dorks the world over have long clamored for a realistic sports simulation for their favorite sports. For most of the pre-computer era, baseball nerds would create fantasy leagues on notebook paper and collect box scores from their local or regional newspapers to keep track of scoring. Once computers were small enough to fit inside high school gyms, the popularity of sports statistics began taking off towards what has become a multi-billion dollar industry: fantasy sports and video game simulations. Today's baseball nerds only need access to computers conveniently located in your local library, educational institute or mom's basement to have access to a dizzying array of statistics in just two or three clicks of a mouse.

REVIEW: Horror Movie meets Video Game - Jaws (1987)

It’s the late 80’s.  You’re dateless, too poor to afford to go to the arcade, the girlfriend just left you to seek out her first and only love...Scott Baio, and there’s only one thing left to do.  Put on a custom mix tape and jam out the NES.  Or if you were like me, you were 5.  But anyway, nothing says awesome like the original Nintendo.  Super Mario Bros, Megaman, Metroid, The Legend of Zelda...all of these will not be discussed anywhere in this article.

What I would like to discuss are the video game adaptations of popular Horror Movies.  In my research I was astounded to find out just how many films were made into video games.  And after several months of painstaking internet research and pawn shop scrounging I can finally sit down and enjoy them. (ok you got me, I downloaded them)

REVIEW: Jammin' Crash Landing - ToeJam & Earl (1991)

Golly-Gee-Whiz, does this game ever bring back memories. I remember playing this game with my dad. I would always be ToeJam and he, of course, would be stuck Earl. I have played to the end of this game a few times, but only recently because I was too young to conquer the wildly mismatched game of ToeJam & Earl. And let me tell you, it was a great feeling to finally beat the game that plagued so many nights of my young life. So let's get ready to build that space ship you have always wanted to ever since you were a child.

REVIEW: Oh, Holy Triforce - The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past (1992)

Ah, the first Zelda game that I ever owned. It started my insane love for the series. Thankfully Nintendo put it on the Wii Channel for download, because my SNES is the devil. I get right to the end castle and BAM! No more save file. I think my SNES never wants me to actually finish the game again. And the little devil has done it more than once. But enough of that, let's get to the review.
