Hey, all. Kim again. I’m pretty sure I mentioned before that I played Nintendo growing up. I played a lot. SNES, original Gameboy, Gameboy Advance and Color, and most recently DS. It seems like, as long as I have been playing, there have been Final Fantasy games. The franchise has been around for close to 30 years now. Final Fantasy XV was previewed at E3 2016 this past week. I was pretty excited when James W. pointed us towards this SNES Final Fantasy 3 cart signed by series composer, Nobuo Uematsu! Read more...

*Update: Sorry, Guys. This Was Sold!*

Hey everyone. It's Kim again. Today is all about the Legend of Zelda—I’m sure I don’t have to tell you this is one of the best action-adventure games ever made. I played the original Legend of Zelda and Zelda II: The Adventure of Link on my NES in the late 80s. Then, I enjoyed Oracle of Ages on my Game Boy and eventually Phantom Hourglass on my DS. One of my all time favorites has to be the Legend of Zelda Twilight Princess (sold)! Read more...

GameSniped Video Game Review of Stardew Valley

GameSniped Video Game Review of Stardew Valley

The first time I saw the Stardew Valley PC game, I noticed there was something similar about it. I experienced a deja vu or a vague recollection of a game I played in the past. I dismissed the memory and focused on the game in front of me. The first time I found this game showing up was a trailer on YouTube from September of 2012 and a request for those interested to upvote the game on Steam Greenlight. The game was obviously greenlighted and a new, updated trailer was published in January 2016 ahead of the February 2016 release. You can watch the trailer below. Read more...

That’s One Doomed Spacemarine!! Rip and Tear WIth This Doom Merchandise

Hi everyone, Kim here. We're back after a break following the holiday weekend. Retro PC games bring back a lot of fun memories for me. One of my all-time favorites was Doom. I reviewed Doom 4 a little while ago. You can read the review here.  I originally played on the Sega 32X. Later, when I went away to college, I made a new friend who happened to have it on PC—this was of course Doom 1993. I’m not gonna lie, I preferred the PC. It may have had something to do with the setup. My friend’s Sega back home was connected to an old, fairly small TV in the basement. This guy was a computer science major when people were still asking what computer science was. He had one of the best computer setups I’d seen up to that time, and I had an open invitation to play Doom anytime I wanted. Read more...

Intellivision Baseball Cart CIB and Other Classics Games from the 80’s

Intellivision Baseball Cart CIB and Other Classics Games from the 80’s

Kim here. I know I have talked about gaming as kid a few times here. I decided to tell you about one of my favorite Intellivision video games. My poor old dad never had a son, so I guess he thought the closest he could get to playing ball with his kid was to buy me Intellivision Baseball. He said it was for me. But, I’d be willing to bet that it was more for him than for me. Read more...

GameSniped Video Game DOOM 4 Review

GameSniped Video Game DOOM 4 Review

Kim here. I want to talk to you guys about Doom. My first experience with Doom was on a Sega 32X in the mid 90’s. I would go to my friend’s house after school and we would blast pinkies all night. I saw 2 and 3 but never really gave them much time or thought and primarily felt the same way when I heard there was going to be a 4th. Development for DOOM 4 originally began way back in 2004, but it was a long, drawn out process. Finally, in 2011, it was announced that the newest game would be a DOOM reboot, not just another DOOM game. The idea of a reboot piqued my interest. Instead of trying something different, it was going to be bringing something back. A formula that had always worked since the creation of the first game. This DOOM 4 game would remind everyone of the original Doom that was the predecessor of just about every FPS game we know today. Read more...

LVL UP EXPO 2016 and Other Expo Good Stuff

LVL UP EXPO 2016 and Other Expo Good Stuff

Did anyone make it to Vegas last weekend for the LVL UP EXPO? While I don’t have an actual final head count, attendees who had been there in past years reported that there were exponentially more people there than ever before, an unsurprising increase in lvl up expo attendance considering all the positive feedback from previous years. This is definitely a good sign for such a young expo. It helps to have powerhouse sponsors like Microsoft (we all know how important the Xbox is to them). Jasco Games (table top/board games) and Rixty (alternative payment platform) were also major sponsors along with local businesses, Game Nest and PSG, both local Vegas arcades/gaming stores.

Get Ready for the LVL UP EXPO With These Rare Vintage Collectibles

Any of you heading to Vegas this weekend? For those of you not in the know, this weekend (May 14 and 15, 2016) is the LVL UP EXPO held in Las Vegas. The two-day event is jam-packed with tons of panels, free game play, a cosplay contest (with a top prize of a cool $1,000), eleven different video game tournaments, and an extensive list of exhibitors and artist. Don’t worry if you haven’t heard of this yet. It’s still fairly young being that this year is only the fourth year it has taken place. It’s definitely not something you want to dismiss though. The official LVL UP attendance from 2015 was 4,208. They're expecting much more than that this year! Read more...

8 Bit Galaxy Demake of Normans Sky and Sealed X Wing vs Tie Fighter Joystick Bundle

8 Bit Galaxy Demake of Normans Sky and Sealed X Wing vs Tie Fighter Joystick Bundle

No Man’s Sky, the online adventure game, is all about exploration in space and on distant planets due out June 21 in the U.S. Every exploration puts you at risk of having to defend yourself in battle. It is a visual masterpiece. While there is elaborate lore associated with the game, developers have said they wanted the game to “look like a science fiction book cover come to life.” You can find out all about the game here. If this visual appearance is not as important to you as the actual game play, or you are looking for the same game with a more retro feel, you want Normans Sky. Read more...
