What it is Hulklings! A lot of great content planned this week. First, a review for Edge of Tomorrow, a video game editorial (it’s a thinker), a history of one of the most important books in comics (and it’s not a comic book!), and a game everyone bought for the wrong reason. Let’s see what everyone else is up to.
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.
Chronology Review – There are entirely too many games to play. Thankfully, other people let me know what I should and shouldn’t play. This looks like a lot of fun, and already on my Steam wish list for when it’s on sale.
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.
The Wonder Years Cast Reunion – I’m a sucker for things like this. I love seeing the cast of my old favorite shows come together, seeing how they’ve grown and changed. The Wonder Years was a fantastic show. True story, this was set in the 60’s-70’s, I thought it was made then too.
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.
If Games Were Movies: The Silent Hill Series – I haven’t played a single Silent Hill game, so I guess this is accurate. I’ve always been told to at least play the second one. I have the collection, with 2 and 3 on it, so, eventually. Regardless, creative article.
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.
The Floor is Jelly Review – Honestly, these are the type of reviews I look forward to the most. With so many games on Steam alone, it’s a daunting task to wade through the mire. User reviews are helpful, but something a little more formal is always appreciated.
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.
