The marathon itself will involve 60 hours of fun with the Super Nintendo – one of the most popular game systems of all time. But this year, we’re making things more interactive! Beyond chatting with you all live, we’re giving you the chance to help us decide what games to play. Of course, you can do this by donating to the cause. The perks for donating are:
We’re live every 1st and 3rd Wednesday of the month!
Black Friday – the media loves to hype it to the gills. But beyond the deals, lines, and people stampeding over each other for $5 off an HDTV – is there a better way? Has the “holiday” become passe?
Plus, we’re bound to talk the Wii U launch and Xbox 720 specs, so come join us!
For many of us, reaching for a videogame soundtrack is fairly commonplace. Although we might take some flack for it, the best of game music over the years provides as great a listening experience as any pop-infused playlist, with some bonus nostalgia to boot. But what happens when we (perhaps unfairly) compare the soundtracks from two of the most successful franchises in gaming history? That is precisely the question at hand today on the Wringer. Can the Commodore stand against the one-sidedness of the community responses, or will he too fall in line? Find out here, and then get ready for a question for next week that will have you revisiting your AOL screen name and pulling out the old Hanson CDs. It’s the Weekly Wringer!
The bombshell dropped last week – Disney buys Lucasfilm and a new Star Wars trilogy is coming, starting in 2015. We know you must be so confused, wondering if you should be shouting for joy or gathering pitchforks. But worry not! We’ll be happy to discuss the matter with you and figure out if this is a new hope, or phantom menace.
(See what we did there?)
Ever been made fun of for being geeky? It’s probably happened to all of us at some point. But what are the interests (or obsessions) that have brought you the most mockery in your lifetime? Today the Commodore dives into a few of your interests and admits some of his own. And then in full election season fashion, a comparison question should serve to get the community nice and divided for next week. It’s the Weekly Wringer!
16-Bit Gems is back! After a short haitus, Roo continues his mini-retrospective on the Dragon Quest series. This time, he looks at the definitive versions of the first two games, and examines how they influenced dozens of console RPGs to come. So grab your horned hat and watch the slimes draw near – the Dragonlord’s not going to leave Tantegel Castle alone without a fight!
Kicking off the first of what is sure to be many analyses of the awesomeness of the games we love, the Commodore talks today about Castlevania: Symphony of the Night. But oh there’s so much to love! The Commodore makes a good case using your comments and some thoughts of his own on why this game has stood the test of time. Then we move on tot he question for next week which will cause you to recall all of your most shameful geeky moments. It’s the Weekly Wringer!
Join us every 1st and 3rd Wednesday of the month at 9pm Eastern!
Not a year goes by without politicians decrying the evils of video games – sex, violence, “motion” controls – but do they have a point: Should video games be censored in any way? And if so, how: by companies, ESRB, or the government?
Look folks the WiiU is coming fast, just as all of us are starting to look at our wallets thinking of that holiday shopping season. No doubt the WiiU offers a unique take on gaming in the 21st century, but is its value-proposition enough for you to fork over the cash for it at launch? The Commodore sorts through your answers to better understand what’s valuable for all of you in your gaming investments. And then the question for next week rushes in asking about the awesomeness of one of the best games of all time. Perhaps the Commodore is just a miserable pile of secrets! It’s the Weekly Wringer!
We go live on the 1st and 3rd Wednesday of every month at 9PM Eastern Time!
