By now you all likely know the first chunk of DLC for Nintendo's Mario Kart 8 is here. It has three new characters for your racing pleasure, including Link from…
More games from eBay, a few from Amazon, and a live stream to boot! This week saw the last of the eBay purchases come in, which is nice, because these lots had some of the games I cared about the most. Also, Hyrule Warriors gave me another solid reason to play my Wii U after Mario Kart 8 a few months back. Let’s get right into this weeks’ games! (more…)
The 2014 Electronic Entertainment Expo has officially come and gone, and left in it’s wake are mountains of exciting games to play, systems that look a hell of a lot better, and gamers who are proud to pronounce their hobby to any and all. Last year’s show was filled with announcements about the next generation consoles, the Xbox One and the PlayStation 4, so this year it was expected that Sony, Microsoft, and Nintendo would put out plenty of new software to go with that shiny new hardware. These ten moments were the defining times of E3 2014, and the games I am most excited to play. (more…)
In what might be the only tradition I have here at SlickGaming, we are one week away from the 2014 Electronics Entertainment Expo, which means it’s time for some dream predictions! I’ve come to realize that while these are mostly in good fun, they are all actually things I really would like to see come out of the show. Interestingly enough, some of these predictions have come true (more or less): Nintendo has actually made significant progress in the online gaming department, and the PS4 and, more recently, the Kinect-Free Xbox One do indeed retail for under $400! Two out of twenty isn’t that bad, right?
Without delay, here are my predictions for this year’s show! (more…)
Riding on the coattails of Scrooge McDuck and the HD remake of the NES classic DuckTales, I’ve been reminiscing about a lot of games from my childhood. And while yesteryear is strangely something I think about far more than a normal person should, this time I was beginning to wonder what some of my other favorite titles growing up would look like in glorious high definition. Though it’s strictly speculation and quite literally most of these will never be possible, it was fun to think of what could be. What should be, perhaps? But nonetheless, here are the top ten games that need HD remakes! (more…)
Nintendo’s Virtual Console is a brilliant platform that provides today’s generation of gamers access to video games from yesteryear. One of the best aspects of this service is the privilege to play some of Nintendo’s classic games, and now, gamers have access to two of the better games in the timeless Legend of Zelda series: the Game Boy Color titles Oracle of Seasons and Oracle of Ages.

I don’t know how we managed, but the Bosscast has secured an interview with Fake Ed Boon! Listen to the new episode to hear exclusive answers to questions like the forthcoming Mortal Kombat vs. NBA Jam, and the final DLC character for Injustice: Gods Among Us.
Also this week, I tell of my experiences at the Nintendo press event in San Francisco, Mat gives us a great story of a trolling gamer, and Jett passes down his knowledge of Iceland.

As 2011 comes to an end, I thought it would be a cool idea to look back at the year in games. Specifically, the year in games added to my ever-growing library. If you’re a frequent visitor to the site (I greatly hope you are!) you’ll no doubt know I do a weekly blog post about my newest games. So below I’ve collected every game I added this year (well, really only half-year, because I started this blog in late July). I’ve also linked any relevant posts I’ve done about said games, like reviews, Modern Classics, and gameplay videos. Enjoy the small retrospective, and here’s to another fantastic year in gaming in 2012!
I’ve been writing video game reviews for over two years now, and there’s been some things I’ve learned over that span of time. I don’t mean better writing techniques, for which I’ve picked up quite a few, but rather the things you don’t think about until they rear their head. Since not everyone has written reviews before, I wanted to take some time to reflect on my time spent writing, and give some insight on what it takes to be a freelance video game reviewer.
