The Awesome Legacy of Castlevania: Symphony of the Night

Castlevania: Symphony of the Night is one of the best games ever made.

The original PlayStation had so many gems that have gone down as some of the best games in gaming history. Castlevania: Symphony of the Night is one of those games. I played the original Castlevania on the NES but didn’t have much interest in the series beyond that. A friend of mine in high school tried to get me into Super Castlevania IV on the SNES, but I just didn’t see the appeal. But when I played Castlevania: Symphony of the Night for the first time, I became engaged by Castlevania in a way that I never thought possible. For the first time, a Castlevania game had my full attention. And I not only would go on to spend multitudes of hours with this game. It is also one of the few games that I’ve completed multiple times. Continue Reading

Cloud, Link, & Sora Mods for Marvel Ultimate Alliance Downloads

I’ve been following Marvel Mods for years and I remember the early days of the site when the mods were very few. Today, it is a hub for hundreds of Marvel Ultimate Alliance mods that don’t just span Marvel, but many other universes as well. We’re talking DC, anime, other video game franchises, etc. The creators have made it to where just about anyone you can think of can is a potential mod for the original Marvel Ultimate Alliance. Case in point, Cloud Strife from Final Fantasy VII, Link from The Legend of Zelda, and Sora from Kingdom Hearts are the mods featured in the video. None of them are Marvel characters or even comic book characters for that matter. Marvel Mods is a huge reason I still play this game. Marvel Ultimate Alliance is one of the best superhero games ever created and I’m glad to see that it still receives as much mod support as it does. Continue Reading

Video Games are Like a Grand Buffet

Before I received my kidney transplant a few years ago, I used to savor those times when I would go to a buffet. To see so much food with so many choices was always a delight for me. No matter which food group I focused on, there were multiple attractive items to choose from. Since my transplant, I no longer go to buffets for health reasons. But the more I think about it, the way that I go about gaming can be likened to how I would be at a buffet. In a hilarious but truthful way, gaming to me is like a buffet experience.

Fire Pro Wrestling World CAW/Mod Showcase #5 Downloads

As one of my favorite forms of entertainment, I have a huge appreciation for pro wrestling. That being said, I really appreciate its history as well. With the insane amount of wrestlers that can be found on the Steam Workshop for Fire Pro Wrestling World, I wasted no time downloading a lot of classic wrestlers when I first got the game a few years ago. The idea of going back to the 1950s came from watching old clips on YouTube of the above matches. Using Fire Pro Wrestling World and harnassing the power of video editing software, I decided to create my interpretation of a 1950’s style wrestling showcase featuring wrestling greats such as Gorgeous George, Lou Thesz, Bobo Brazil, Rikidozan, Verne Gagne, and Ilio Dipaolo.

This is the Best Warhammer Game I’ve Played to Date

Warhammer 40,000: Inquisitor – Martyr is one of the best Diablo-like games you’ll find.

I’m not very familiar with the Warhammer universe. The lore, species, and history are all things I’m very ignorant of when it comes to Warhammer. I do know that there are Space Marines, Inquisitors, an Emperor, a bunch of aliens, and the fact that it all takes place in the distant future. Outside of that, I would be very lost in a conversation with a Warhammer enthusiast. On the video game front, I’ve played Warhammer 40,000: Space MarineWarhammer: Vermitide, and Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War. I have the original Total War: Warhammer sitting in my library as a result of a recent Amazon Prime giveaway but have yet to play it. But the game that I’ve recently played that I believe ascends past them all is Warhammer 40,000: Inquisitor – Martyr. Continue Reading
