Yes, it is a click-bait title, but at least I respect you gamers in admitting to said click-bait title, which honestly not really click-bait when you think about it. Anyway Special Shoutout to Mike’s Monster Gaming and my cousin Mr. Trickster who inspired this post idea. These two are Nintendo enthusiast and have been for the longest time. I saw my cousin play Snowboard Kids a while ago and recently on Mike’s channel I saw him playing and realized that this needs a resurrection.
Shout out to Ed Boon (Even though he will not read this post) on making me think outside the box on this one since he inspired this post with his tweet. I will never say something can’t be done when it comes to video games. If the money is right it shall happen, but I believe he is trolling which was shown in the latest tweet that I will show below.
Happy Throwback Thursday gamers and welcome to this personal segment where I touch base one final time on backward compatibility. I have to retract my previous statement about how PS4 needs to get on the backwards train and join in on what Xbox One has been doing lately. I only came to this conclusion as I started going back in time for a bit to play some games and unlike some wine, it didn’t get better with age.
In my last post, I told ya’ll about a Game Bar on Kokusai Street. Well on Kokusai Street is this wonderful place called “Makishi Market.” An indoor market with tons of tax-free discount shops, clothing stores, coffee & tea shacks, bars, traditional Japanese restaurants and of course a place to game. Once again call it sheer luck or just gamers intuition, but I found this place by accident. Seems to be a reoccurring theme in my life as of late. Deep inside on the quieter side of the marketplace, nestled alongside a string of buildings near a taco joint is a place where gamers can face off against homegrown top-notch Japanese competition for just .50 cents a round. From the outside, the motorbikes are lined up, and red lights pour on to the entrance and what awaits you is gaming with some serious nostalgia. This place is Game in Naha 2. Now I know the name sounds like someone ran it through Google Translate, but the place is so awesome we can overlook something like a less than stellar creativity when it comes to naming can’t we?
Hey folks! I know I always say it but this time my soon to be catchphrase holds a lot more weight. It has indeed, been awhile. The last post being the Yakuza Kiwami review. But fear not, because my hiatus is for a good reason. Take studying abroad in Japan. Tell me that’s not the best excuse ever! Sure, beats the hell outta “the dog ate my homework.” Throughout my more error in the trials of living in Naha City, I managed to find some pretty sweet gaming spots. So, in the event, you happen to find yourself in Naha City Okinawa and you’re running low on Gamer Fuel, here are a view places you ought to hit up!
I am not going to lie to you gamers that I wish some games would make a comeback and honestly stumbling upon an interview of Hideki Kamiya wanting to bring back a few game characters for the new consoles and do a crossover. I spotted the original article on Silocronera’s site. Not just Viewtiful Joe was mentioned but also he wants to do a DMC remake and a Crossover for Dante and Bayonetta.

It is that time of year folks and not only about spending more time with family, getting your stomachs ready for the holiday foods and of course bundling up for the cold winter. It is all those things and more with shopping and what comes with this time of year is the long-awaited black Friday deals. The best thing about the Black Friday shopping is that many companies are wising up and starting the deals off early and online. Here we are with the announcement of Play-Asia.com’s own Black Friday starting November 7th, 2017.
I laughed at the thought when I was younger of a universal controller that can be used on all systems. It was a childhood thought of mine to own that powerful controller where you don’t have to do much configuration and it is just plug in only. I love it when years later you hear one of your ideas become a reality because you get the impression that someone out there with the means feels the same way as you do.
Sorry for the misleading title, but to be clear we are discussing the idea around raids being questionable for certain games. So far, I keep thinking about raids in a general scope of endurance with tough opponents and having to grind to reach a certain level to survive. This concept has been mostly in MMORPG’s and in many cases, regular RPG’s where you have to level up your team to tackle certain obstacles before you reach the main boss. Can raids work in games outside the MMORPG genre?
