Around the Web – 9/28/14

What it is Hulklings! What did you think of the Gotham pilot? What about when Bruce’s parents died? Did not see that coming! Shock and gasp! With the other superhero shows premiering soon, I’ve lined up some content to take advantage. First there’s a look back at the original Flash show, the second part of the State of the Ultimate Marvel Universe, a review of Arrow season 2, and a top 5 list of my favorite game genre. 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.

5 One-hit Wonders you Forgot About – Of these, the only one I forgot about was Snow – Informer. Also, never knew what 4 Non Blondes looked like. Huh, that’s, something.

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.

smash_bros_3ds_demo

Review: Super Smash Bros. Demo (3DS) – Looks like some high and mighty jerk at SaH received demo codes for Smash Bros. Unlike the rest of us peons who had to wait, even if they’ve been a member of Club Nintendo from day one.

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.

Blizzard Cancels Titan – Seven years is a long time to work on something only to scuttle it. Kudos to them for not pushing forward with something they found to be inferior. Personally, I’d be torn.

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.

soul_blazer_us_box_art

Day 122: Soul Blazer – One of the oldest games in my ever growing backlog. Of the Soul Blazer series, I’ve only played Illusion of Gaia. I’d like to remedy that, especially after reading this.

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 67 – Drinking Buddies! – Oh forlorn! Due to a catastrophic computer error, this week’s episode of THN was lost! Woe! Luckily, there’s still the answer of the week. Which superhero do you want to drink with?

Phew phew.
