Merry Christmas, and yippee-ki-yay, motherfuckers! It’s the first real SNDG Xmas episode! I figure after doing this for a few years, maybe I should do something to celebrate more than just Halloween.
The Nintendo Entertainment Celebration continues for today’s entry in the Curse of 31 Days of Horror Games! Today is the 30th anniversary of the NES launch in North America, so Roger’s got five spooky games that remain NES exclusives!
The Nintendo Entertainment Celebration kicks off as I compare the Japanese version of Super Mario Bros. 2 (a.k.a. The Lost Levels) with the US version.
Merry nothing to do with Christmas! After all that SEGA, it was time to do something… not SEGA. So c’mon Jackie Chan, whoa-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh!
And remember, you can help support the video portion of this site by going here.
The Summer of SEGA begins! Shinobi in the arcade, on the NES and the Master System.
Yes, I know it’s June now, but we’re going to consider this the May episode of SNDG, and you’ll have another episode by the end of the month. I’m looking at Image Fight for the PC Engine and NES this time!
We premiered it on the stream last night, but now it’s here for you to watch over and over again. Yes, Same Name, Different Game is BACK. And back for good. In fact, there’ll be another new one next week (but don’t expect them weekly in general). So, check it out as I talk Gradius for the NES and PC Engine!
I could immediately tell Dr. Chaos is a horror themed game because, not unlike an Angelfire web page of the ‘90s, the title is written in blood. Dripping blood. Cheesiness aside, the title screen is actually pretty cool, with a nice tune and a dynamic haunted house full of things going on. Hi! I’m Stephen Hopkins, the guy behind the mostly dead Poverty Game Night, On the Stick listener, and, I guess, now contributor. I’ve written about the game before, because I think it’s an under-appreciated game, but seeing as it’s October and that means horror around here, I figured I could write about the game coming from a horror angle.
Joe takes on FIVE Batman games, in honor of the release of The Dark Knight Rises!
I somehow neglected to post this here. It’s been on Gamefira.com for over a month, but I never posted it here, so if you missed it, here it is! I’m taking on woefully under-remembered NES game Power Blade!
Hey, my move put me behind schedule, but I’m back with a new episode on Double Dragon II for the PC Engine Super CD and NES!
Joe and Eric get together with guests Ethan Cheng, Nick Rycar and Jeremy Signor to talk about the history of WWF games, starting with Microleague Wrestling all the way up through the Smackdown vs. Raw series. Madness ensues! Much shorter than last year’s Wrestlemania podcast!
My new video series! In the first episode, I take on the Famicom-exclusive overhead shooter, Crisis Force. These will go up at Gamefira.com a few days before appearing here, but they will always come here, too. (Originally posted on Gamefira.com 2/27.)
This time, I’m taking on a double dose of Double Dragon!
In general it’s probably bad form to introduce something by talking about its negative qualities. After all, if you’ve already played today’s game, Monster Party, then you probably clicked this to read about a game you enjoyed, and if you haven’t, starting this article by bashing it makes the following praise sound hollow. But hey, we love being unconventional almost as much as we love mixed metaphors here at On the Stick, and personally I’d rather sweep the dust under the rug and keep on truckin’.
This time out, I’m looking at Super Dodge Ball for the NES and Nekketsu Koukou Dodge Ball Bu: PC Bangai Hen for the PC Engine!
The game for May is Strider! Check back every month for new episodes!
Joe checks out the Midwest Gaming Classic 2011!
We here at On the Stick don’t like to limit ourselves to just one form of media, but honestly, we talk about videogames more than anything else. That being the case, I figured instead of talking about one of Sam Raimi’s movies, we would talk about a game based on one of those movies. Now, it would be predictable for us to talk about the Evil Dead games. They’re recent, everyone pretty much knows how they pan out, and they’ve been talked about to death. The first one sucks, the second one’s a little better and the third one is a pretty solid action game. There’s also one for the C64, but I’m not British. So, I decided to do something a little less predictable and write about Ocean Software’s 1991 NES game based on Darkman.
Wrestlemania Week continues as my pro wrestling alter-ego takes a look at two Wrestlemania games in this month’s Same Name, Different Game!
