Summary/Reception

I honestly forgot to do a preview before it came out on Friday, sorry. Anyways, Super Smash Bros. is the fourth entry of the Super Smash Bros. franchise (weird how Nintendo didn’t change the title by at least adding a four or something like “Dojo”, but oh well). It is popular, addictive fun for friends and family. It is a fighting game that has nearly all of Nintendo’s stars, plus some guest appearances, come together for an all-out brawl of the century.

Fun: Funny Fan-Created Videos

Published November 21, 2014 by Amanda B. Greene

There are some great ones out there, especially listed on GI’s “Gamer Culture” page. I just watched this one called “Super Heroes vs. Game Heroes” that has all of them fighting each other, which is actually well done and somewhat hilarious. You can check out the GameInformer’s article by clicking here or you can just watch below. Enjoy! 😀

Fun: What Songs Get Stuck In Your Head?

Are you the kind of person who typically can listen to a song once, even months or years ago, and then have it come out of nowhere sometimes? I am one of those people who can even remember and play in my head music from literally about ten years back with the classic Crash Bandicoot and Spyro game tracks.

I thought about this because just when I started taking my third exam in my Human Biology last Friday, all the sudden I got fast-paced Christmas music  like “Coral Of Bells” playing on the back of my mind. It was annoying and only pressured me more how it made me feel like I had a time limit… not much is worst than that when being tested. Do any of you have funny moments like that? 🙂 Read the rest of this entry →

My First Video Interview

Published November 19, 2014 by Amanda B. Greene

We were challenged in my Elecronic Media class to do an “expert” video interview for our blogs, so I decided to talk with my friend Nathan about gaming. He does his own blog as well as a cool podcast series about video, board, and card games, so be sure to go to www.nathanabernety.wordpress.com.

 

Please have mercy on me, since this is my first one. I hope you enjoy it! I also did a funny trailer as a preview to this interview that can be found here when you scroll down a little on the home page. 😀

Review: Bayonetta 2

Published November 19, 2014 by Amanda B. Greene

Sorry, this has taken so long… I’ve been really busy. Anyways, Bayonetta 2 has definitely improved from the first with bigger and better over-the-top action and drama. The greatest being the smoother and faster battles that still keep their flare while dealing massive damage. More weapons and playable characters make for a great experience.

Reminder: First Pack Of Mario Kart 8 DLC Available Now!

Published November 14, 2014 by Amanda B. Greene

It just came out on Thursday, so I was able to try some of it out yesterday for about an hour or so. I made some highlight reels to show off the three new characters as well as two of the eight new tracks, Excitebike Arena and Hyrule Circuit. If you’re curious, I played as Link and Mario in the videos. I hope you enjoy! 😉
