Around the Web – 8/17/14

What it is Hulklings! This week, I gots more stuffs for your eyeballs. First there’s a TV editorial, followed by a games editorial. I’m willing to bet the latter will have people calling me stupid. Then, there’s the super-mega Top 5 list I’ve been building towards for months (mwahahaha), and then, rounding out the week, is another Saturday Morning Cartoons post. Let’s check in with the listeners.

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.

Most Movies/TV Shows Filmed at Same High School – I think somewhere, deep down, I knew this.

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.

Toto Temple Deluxe – Fun fact, I kickstarted the Ouya and haven’t turned it on since the day it arrived.  This looks pretty cool, but like Towerfall Ascension, I’m sure this will make its way to other devices.

SNES A DAY – TWITTER / TUMBLR

The SNES is one of, if not the best home consoles. Cory over at SNES a Day has made it his goal to play every game in the catalog in the order they released. The write-ups are fantastic, and honestly, I’m a little jealous I didn’t think of this first.

Day 80: Super Mario Kart – The game that started it all. I completely agree with Cory’s assessment. I played this again before Mario Kart 8‘s released, the mechanics have certainly changed from this initial entry.

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.

Saturday Morning Cartoons: Thank You, FCC! – I had fun writing this one. While there were certainly problems when the FCC mandated that kid shows had some sort of educational quality, it stopped shows from being outright commercials. Mostly.

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.

Defending Design: Part 2 – It’s been a bit since SaH posted an article. This is a continuation of a great series. I can’t wait for part 2. Hopefully it won’t be in a month.

  1. The OUYA is a godsend if you constantly have friends over to play stuff, otherwise it can be a box full of fun games you’ll never get to enjoy. I don’t know what to do with myself when no one else is around lol.
