What it is Hulklings! Muppets! Titanfall! So much to do! Aaaaaaahhhh!!Want to become a friend of The Credible Hulk? Comment below, or follow any of the contact links on the side. Here’s what I’ve enjoyed this week.

The Two Headed Nerd Comicast with Joe and Matt – Facebook / Twitter 

THN is one of my favorite podcasts. I can’t wait for the new episode each week. Hosts Matt Baum and Joe Patrick have a great dynamic, as well as produce a quality product. I know how much work goes into making a podcast, and seeing how tightly scripted their show is, along with all the background music, puts me in awe. Even if your interest in comics is passing, give them a listen, you’ll be entertained. Full disclosure, I write the Saturday Morning Cartoon series for THN.


Answer of the Week 45: Ridiculous Villain Plots – With over 80 years of comics, there’s a bit of goofiness to be had. THN asked their listenerds to call in with their most ridiculous villain schemes. Boy, were there some good ones.

Button Smashers – Facebook / Twitter

Gaming and anime go hand in hand. Button Smashers has you covered on both fronts. The group of writers over there (which I’m proud to count myself amongst) publish great articles ever week. All manner of awesome and far out gaming corners are covered, as well as modern anime.


Nintendo Miiplaza v3.0: What I Want to See – Nintendo has a lot of catching up to do. While their heads were buried in the sand, the competition passed them by in many ways. NekoJonez makes many valid point, offering suggestions of things he wants to see. Though I haven’t played with Miiplaza at all, I’d like like some of these features.

The Nostalgia Blog – Facebook / Twitter

Who doesn’t love a good flashback? The Nostalgia blog has everything you’d want from “hey, remember this?” to news of comeback from anything, 80s, 90s, or anything retro. Growing up across both decades, I constantly look forward to posts on this site.


Ace Ventura: Pet Detective – I can’t believe this is 20 years old. I’m a little scared to go back and see how this holds up. Also, was that card always in Spanish?

Stay-At-Home Gaming – Facebook Twitter

It takes talent to add a different slant to video game writing, in addition to making it entertaining. Stay-At-Home Gaming has that in spades. While their reviews are solid, covering a wide variety of games old and new, I look forward to the random Gaming Fun posts. Everything at SAH is creative, and most importantly, fun.


South Park: The Stick of Truth First Impressions – I’ve heard a lot about this game, but this is the first I’ve read about it. South Park’s lost me over the years, though I’ve been curious about the game. This article has definitely changed my mind. When’s the next Steam sale?

What’s Your Tag? – Facebook / Twitter

With so much gaming news coming out daily, it’s easy to miss most of it. What’s Your Tag? has your back. From great reviews to all manner of gaming news, small and big, WYT? is smart and fun. Plus, their weekly comic strip is hilarious.


Yoshi’s New Island Review – I rarely miss a first party Nintendo game, only skipping the poorer ones. Seems like this falls into that category as well. Shame.

  1. Thanks for the link back to my Yoshi’s New Island review over at What’s Your Tag?, I appreciate it!

    I wouldn’t really say Yoshi’s New Island is a bad game at all, although it’s certainly not very good. It’s just extremely easy and doesn’t offer anything different. It’s also rather short. If it ever drops down to $20, I’d say that’s a sweet spot where you’d find enough enjoyment in it (if you’re a fan of Yoshi’s Island to begin with, of course) to warrant at least one playthrough.

    I with you, though. I rarely pass up on first-party Nintendo titles, but I’ve been skipping over Mario Party since the Gamecube. I was honestly shocked by the overall lack of innovation or TLC that was put in to Yoshi’s New Island.

    • You’re welcome! It was a great review!

      I don’t even consider Mario Party anymore, or most Kirby games really. This seems to be in the same arena, too easy. I’m all about getting games on sale, I’ll keep an eye out for it. Thanks!

      • Yeah, Kirby is all a part of nostalgia for me and even though I enjoyed Epic Yarn for what it was, I still waited until it was around $15 before picking it up.
