Xevious Review Rewind

A Game Changer

Every time I play Xevious on one of Namco’s "museum" compilations, I can’t help but reminisce about the time when I first discovered the game in 1992 on the Atari 7800 (a system which also familiarized me with other Namco classics outside of Pac-Man). Back then, our family couldn’t afford the Super NES or Sega Genesis. So, in a move of what I think was out of pity, a friend of ours gave us her 7800 with a huge bag full of games. While rummaging through the cartridges, I came across the little oddity known as Xevious. It was probably the first game I had heard of that started with an “X”, and the name intrigued me. I quickly fell in love with the unique enemy designs and mysterious land structures peppered throughout the game.

Nerds Without Pants Episode 148: Higher. Further. Faster.

This episode is Marvel-ous!

Hey folks! This episode of Nerds Without Pants is lean, mean, and ready to give away a video game! There’s a lot to cover, but since Julian is writing this post from an IHOP with a waiter giving him the “wrap it up” look, it’s time to keep things short. This week, we announce the first winner of The Great Game Giveaway, and we announce the next contest: listen and share the show for your chance to win a copy of either Devil May Cry V or Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice! Now, on to the show!

This Gen, This Month, Another Year: March 2019

Money tight? Why not play an amazing game from yesteryear for cheap?

Welcome to March, everyone! February goes by so fast doesnt it? We have a solid battle for this month. March seems to be the place for heavy hitters this gen. Sure, November is always crowded with plenty of great games but this month holds two pure gems. Some would argue the greatest games of this gen and possibly all time. Setting aside the previous years, March doesn't look like it'll disappoint this year either. We get a blast from the past with a new Toe Jam & Earl that looks like it'll satisfy fans of the original. We've also got two very anticipated sequels to Devil May Cry and The Division. Lastly, FromSoftware is releasing their next game, Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice.

Gris Review

Do you like Journey, but want it to have a bit more Mario in it? This is for you.

While GRIS is a short, 3-4 hour experience that doesn't take a whole lot of gaming skill for most of its run-time, don't be fooled into thinking there aren't legitimately challenging platforming and puzzle sections. Whether this immerses you more in GRIS's world or is just an interruption to your good time depends on what kind of games you like, but I'd say it's well worth the experience.

This Gen, This Month, Another Year: February 2019

Money tight? Why not play an amazing game from yesteryear for cheap?

Hello again and welcome back - it's time to look at February. February seems to be a bit hit or miss this gen. If not for a pretty strong year in 2017, February may be the weakest month of the year. Though it seems like we could be making a sharp turn this year. Heavy hitters like Anthem and Metro: Exodus are out. We have the return of Crackdown and Ace Combat. Also new entries in the Far Cry and God Eater series to top it off. Past years may have seemed slower than other months but there were still games worth playing.

Dragon Quest V: Hand of the Heavenly Bride Review Rewind

Family Matters

August of this year will mark the 20th anniversary since Dragon Quest was introduced in the US. With 10 core sequels and many spin-offs since then, you’d think an RPG fan such as myself would be well-versed in the series by now. But in reality, my Dragon Quest knowledge over the years has only been cursory at best. I got started about eight years ago when I completed Dragon Warrior (the series’ name in the US until 2005), and I’m currently nearly halfway through the massive adventure that is Dragon Quest XI. My depth of familiarity with the series pretty much ends there. Or at least it did until I recently finished Dragon Quest V: Hand of the Heavenly Bride- a Nintendo DS remake of the beloved Super Famicom original.
