Before any of the other Smash Bros games that would come out, the original I played. Smashing targets was a pain in the butt, but fighting with Nintendo characters, playing against Master Hand and defeating him was a blast. Super Smash Bros, Nintendo 64, April 99
Nintendo brought out the Nintendo 64, and while there were a few stinkers(See Superman 64), there were a few awesome games. Goldeneye was one of them. Sure, First Person shooters were never my forte, but Goldeneye 64 was awesome at making this genre fun, especially with multiplayer. Nab a few people, then annoy them with… Continue reading Memories of Gaming Past Part 10: Goldeneye 007
Memories of Gaming Past KitsuneKon Special: Soul Calibur II: One of my favorite fighting games of all time was the original Soul Calibur(More on that shortly). SCII makes the series looks even better than before, and It's fun with a bunch of people. It's the only SC with releases on all three Gen 6 consoles,… Continue reading Memories of Gaming Past KitsuneKon ’15 Special- Soul Calibur 2
Memories of Gaming Past: KitsuneKon edition: Sonic 2. This one featured the level which we cannot beat without a bit of skill (Stupid Water Level), but try using a puny joystick with it. Lots of fun can be had...
Memories of Gaming Past Kitsunekon Special: Superman 64. Now I can say I have played it and know it sucked as much as ET. Add tilt controlls into the mix, and you have a near unplayable game. And yes, you have to go through rings. A ton of rings.
Save my favorite game for last in my Memories of gaming past for the PS1. Considering this was released almost right at the end of the 5th generation, (Dreamcast was released in '99, this game in 2000), it was an enjoyable and long JRPG. Sometime soon, I'm going to replay this. Build up my Black… Continue reading Memories of Gaming Past 009: Final Fantasy IX
I decided in the middle of getting the blog back up, I'm going to be discussing my favorite characters in anime today, and the first series I'm going to pick is one I didn't really dabble into until I nabbed most of the Blurays is the OG Idolm@ster series. The first Major Idol anime/games/music which… Continue reading Joppy’s Favorites pt 1: Picking my favorites: Idolm@ster
Besides the Lunar series, Game Arts also worked on the Grandia series. The first game stands out in my mind as a true adventure RPG in the PS1 era. Exploring places is what this game does well. This is a game that also is on PSN, so you don't have to look high and low… Continue reading Memories of Gaming Past 008: Grandia
20 Years of Anime Part V: Maison Ikkoku (1986) In the middle of my stint overseas, I found this Rumiko Takahashi series from way back in the day... Godai(our main lead) tried, but failed his entrance exams for college. It didn't help that the other tenents at the apartment complex love to pester him… Continue reading 20+ years of Anime Part 4: Maison Ikkoku

Since 2015, It stayed the same. So I need to add and subtract characters to make… Continue reading The Reboot has begun!
