Live a Live Finale - The Eighth Statue

On the final episode of Live-a-Live, the seven heroes battle to save time and space itself from the Demon King. Well, more accurately, four of them battle while three of them do whatever it is that benched party members do in RPGs. Get crunk and look for shorties, probably.

Live-a-Live #17 - Stabbing Eastward

The next character I go after is Kino, hiding in some bushes. Going to get the three characters I'm missing, and their weapons, then it's off to the final battle.

Live-a-Live #16 - Murasame

Oboro finds Masaru the wrestler in the basement of the castle. They could join forces against Odio, but first... they must do battle. It is the ancient way of the pro wrestler.

Live-a-Live #15 - Odious

Unfortunately, no one can be told what Odio is...you have to see it for yourself.

Live-a-Live #13 - The Knight's Tale

Time for the secret eighth scenario. The Knight sure looks a hell of a lot like Dart from Legend of Dragoon...

Highlander: The Series 2x15 - Unholy Alliance, Pt II


Xavier is so bad-ass, he gets two episodes in a row! Don't be fooled by his seemingly aristocratic gentlemanlyness. It hides the fact that he's actually a brutal monster.

Highlander: The Series 2x14 - Unholy Alliance, Pt I


Time for one of the biggest showdowns in Highlander. Duncan Macleod versus Xavier St. Cloud in a BATTLE WITHOUT HONOR.

Super Mario Kart: Revengeance

Today I return with a half-post of sorts chronicling my epic battle with the Special Cup in this game. Winning the gold there was like wrestling an alligator, which is probably why it was oddly omitted from my previous post on Super Mario Kart. I never could finish the Special Cup as a kid, so this is a long-awaited rematch. Join me as I return to the character of my youth, Koopa Troopa, and set out to earn him a pair of wings.

Mario Kart: Double Dash (Gamecube, 2003)


Time to step into the realm of the Gamecube, as Mario and friends get into the business of tag-teaming karts. Since this game coincides with Super Mario Sunshine, I expect it to share a lot of the same assets. Does this also mean the game will consist only of redundant Delfino Island levels? Tune in and find out.

Mario Kart: Super Circuit (Game Boy Advance, 2001)

Next up is the series' jump to portables. This is basically Super Mario Kart 2 in every respect, from the visuals to the track-list. The usual suspects return, and everyone's ready for another round of kart mayhem. Except for Koopa Troopa, who is still out of a job. Thanks, Wario. Thanks a lot.

Mario Kart 64 (Nintendo 64, 1997)

Time for one of the best games of all time that I haven't already played. Super Mario Kart was the last game in this series that I really spent any time with (aside from some unimpressive runs at Double Dash and this game for a few minutes at a time over the years), so this one is pretty new to me. And it's such a cool game that I'll be posting screenshots in Bigscreen-O-Vision. The wave of tomorrow!

Super Mario Kart (Super NES, 1992)

In honor of Mario Kart 8 dropping earlier this season, I'm taking a trip back in time to look at some of the earlier games in the series. In 1992, Nintendo decided to put a bunch of beloved Mario characters (and Toad) into a kart-racing game. The result was one of the highest recorded awesome levels of the past thirty years.

WCW/NWO Revenge (Nintendo 64, 1998)

Here's a game that I've never played before. It's critically acclaimed, and... heh, I like how Raven is just kinda hanging out. Goldberg and Hogan are at odds, and Nash is sorta on Hogan's side staring down Goldberg, but then you have Raven just... there. He isn't on either side, he simply Is. And he sees you. Yes, you, the one holding the box. Raven sees.

TNA Impact (Playstation 2 and 3, 2008)

Today I'm going to take a look at Impact Wrestling's one console game. It really surprises me that this game hasn't gotten any kind of follow-up in the six years since. The sales weren't terrible and while it got bad reviews, that has never stopped game companies from releasing follow-ups before. Besides, they could make more of these on the cheap by just copying and pasting all of the assets like game engine and crowd graphics and so forth. In any case, I don't know what to expect from this game, so let's jump in.
