Welcome to the Video Gaming Portal

The pull down menus at the top of the page link to a variety of gaming resources.

Hello and welcome to the site where you will find a wealth of video gaming information and resources that are just clicks away. What this website represents is my knowledge and experience I’ve gained from more than 35 years of gaming. From the old school arcades and the Atari 2600 to the PC and the Nintendo Switch I play on today, I have enjoyed gaming ever since I first experienced it in the early 1980s. This love continues to endure to this day. Continue Reading

Marvel Ultimate Alliance Mods: Black Cat, Mary Jane & Silver Sable Downloads

There are so many mods to sample on MarvelMods.com created by very talented modders who have a passion for keeping the original Marvel Ultimate Alliance alive with new gameplay experiences. With the recent success of the latest Spider-Man film, I thought it would be fun to show some gameplay with a few of the web slinger’s favorite female allies. This includes Black Cat, Mary Jane, and Silver Sable. All three can also be found in the amazing Marvel’s Spider-Man by Insomniac Games on the PlayStation 4. Spider-Man is a default character in Marvel Ultimate Alliance so the three ladies are mods that you have to add into the game.  Continue Reading

My Black Friday and Winter Sale Pickups

Terminator Resistance was one of many games I purchased on sale during the Black Friday and winter sales.

Black Friday and the start of the winter season is a wonderful time of year if you are a gamer. You’ll find great deals on computers, consoles, games, accessories, and a whole lot more. It’s a time that you can splurge and get a lot in return for your investment. Even Nintendo will drop some of its first-party titles as much as $20. As I normally do each year, I made sure to take advantage of this and landed some games and DLC that I had on my radar for a long time but did not want to pay full price for. So what were some of the highlights? Continue Reading

Fire Pro Wrestling World CAW/Mod Showcase #1 Downloads

Fire Pro Wrestling World is my all-time favorite wrestling game and I have played a lot of them over the years. As I’ve cut back on the number of videos I’m doing each month, that means that there will be more content within the wrestling videos that are uploaded every two weeks instead of each Wednesday. So today’s video showcases a variety of WWF wrestlers from the early 90s such as Randy Savage, Ultimate Warrior, Ric Flair, Razor Ramon, Shawn Michaels, The Undertaker, and the Road Warriors. These wrestlers are not in the game by default but are the work of talented create-a-wrestler makers that bring a wealth of content to the Fire Pro Wrestling World. Continue Reading

Went to my First Video Game Concert

The candlelight setting of the concert I attended in December made it very intimate and cozy.

As a longtime gamer, one of my bucket list items was to attend a video game concert. I’ve always loved watching clips of grand orchestras on YouTube performing some of the most famous and memorable melodies in video gaming history. So the chance to attend a gaming-themed musical event in San Diego, California was just too good to pass up in early December. While it didn’t have an orchestra, the intimate candlelight concert did feature the talented musicians of the “Velveteen Ensemble” as they played some familiar pieces to the delight of the audience inside of the Chapel at Liberty Station. Unfortunately, because I was not prepared to do a post on this initially, I did not obtain photos of the musicians in action. Once the concert began, I was too busy enjoying the event.

The latest update to the ESPN NFL 2K5 Resurrected mod brings with it a significant amount of upgrades and changes. These include the addition of alternate uniforms for the Green Bay Packers, Chicago Bears, Minnesota Vikings, Cincinnati Bengals, and Los Angeles Rams.

The CBS, FOX, and NBC logos can now replace the ESPN logo in the score bug to give the look of a different broadcast using included batch files. NFL coaches have been updated with Rich Bisaccia replacing Jon Gruden. The Jacksonville Jaguars uniforms and stadium have also been improved. Kudos to the ESPN NFL 2K5 Resurrected mod team for their excellent work in modernizing an older game as much as possible. Continue Reading
