Well that took some time to come out. It’s been teased, and got release dates and delays, but we can finally listen to it.
If you don’t know about Powerglove, here’s a lowdown: They’re an awesome band that covers oldschool video game music, but with a great power metal style. They’re probably the best band in the video game music cover sub-genre. Not only do the cover the songs, but they take the tunes and they add in their own style and compositions, making the songs not only recognizable, but also making them their own thing at the same time.
This time, rather than doing video game music, they went through their childhood memories of watching cartoons and are doing covers of their theme songs, which is a fun idea. And for the first time they have a record label for their album, so you’ll be able to find it at local music stores, which is pretty awesome.
So read on and see if they’re as good with cartoon songs as they are with video game tunes!

Every year something comes around to surprise us. Sometimes it’s a game announcement we weren’t expecting, or games we didn’t think we’d like but ended up loving. OR games that we were just totally unsure on how they’d end up.
Read and see what surprised us this year! As per our other GotY posts, we have 5 things on here as well.

With the new generation of games, it seems like third-party companies transitionned to making all their games Multi-Platform. Barely any of them bother making exclusives anymore, which is a shame really, since none of them really bother going to great lengths to use any of the consoles to their full potential.
But that still produces lots of quite good titles, that anyone can play since they’re on more than one console.
So what were the best multi-console releases of 2009?

It’s been very long since we’ve had a good batman game. Namely the NES Batman game by Sunsoft which I reviewed recently. Sure, it didn’t exactly feel like we were playing as Batman, but it was a fun game nonetheless.
Now we have Arkham Asylum, and it might just be the video game Batman fans have been waiting for for years. Is it true to the hype, or was the hype train a bit too big again?

Well, with a new GOOD Batman game out, I thought I’d make my first “Challenges from the Past” post about another good Batman game. That’s right, Batman on the NES, made by Sunsoft.
This is an NES classic for sure, and one of the few Batman games to have been good.
I was given a few challenges for this, so let’s talk about the game first, and the challenges after!

Well, with an arcade cabinet with TONS of games in my basement, I knew I’d find crazy stuff. But… I mean, just look at this game’s title… you know it’s gonna be weird. Just seeing the title in the frontend, I knew I had to try it out, and I wasn’t disappointed.
So read on for the first game in my Arcade Center posts.

Well, I’ll start this review right away by saying that I’m not a Mortal Kombat fan. I’m not a huge fan of the fighting system, thus the reason it took me so long to check this out. That being said, such a random mix of characters was interesting enough for me to want to check it out.
The idea of Superman fighting Scorpion indeed made me quite curious, but does it work? Read on!
