John Lucero’s Top 5 Movies of the Year

As I was putting this list together I came to a realization; I didn’t have strong enough feelings on some movies I saw this year to justify a top 10 list, so I decided to drop it down to five. That way I’m not wasting your time by praising something I only sort of enjoyed. […]

Jason Arriola’s Favorite Podcasts of 2017

If you’re looking for some podcasts to listen to, I’ve got a few suggestions for you. These are a few of my favorites that I either started listening to last year, they started last year, or I felt they really came into their own last year. You know, some sort of qualification tying it to […]

Jason Arriola’s Top Ten (Mostly) Game Albums of the Year

    We put up John’s favorite albums from 2017 earlier this week. To jump on the bandwagon, these are my favorite game-related albums from last year. Most of them are direct soundtracks, but some are fan made remixes that stuck with me throughout the year.   Honorable Mentions: Shadows of Adam – Tyler Mire, Blossom Tales: […]

John Lucero’s Top 10 Albums of the Year

Music was so good in 2017. As a huge hip hop fan, the breadth of quality options lead to me listening to a new album or two every week. I totaled just over 70 full length albums this year and that doesn’t include the many singles I also enjoyed. What I’m trying to say is […]

The Possible Realities Of A Nintendo 64 Classic

I feel like we’re partially responsible for this, willing it into an early existence, having talked about the possibility of a Nintendo 64 Classic on the latest podcast. If you haven’t heard, Nintendo filed a trademark for the Nintendo 64 controller image.   It seems more an inevitability than a “what if”, so I started […]

Apple iOS 11 Is Going To Kill Some Games

When Games and Junk first started, putting classic video games on the iPhone seemed absurd. The screen on the iPhone 4 seemed too small to be able to properly enjoy Secret of Mana, Chrono Trigger, and even the original Final Fantasy. I could only imagine playing these inferior ports turning people off them. All it really took to […]

Nintendo Discontinues The NES Classic

Nintendo has a fair amount of things going on for it right now. The world (us included) seems to be unable to stop talking about The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild more than a month after its release. Their newest console, the Switch, seems to be doing rather well as it continues to be […]

Radiant Historia Getting Another Shot At Life With A 3DS Remake

Last night, Atlus teased us with this image. I became rather excited at the prospect of a new Radiant Historia game. A remake on Vita? 3DS? Switch? And then the realities of the present day kicked in and I realized it was probably going to be a smartphone port. Soul effectively crushed. Thankfully, Atlus pulled through. Radiant […]

Game Diaries: Yakuza 0 – Brutal And Brutally Funny

Yakuza 0’s not something that I was initially planning on getting. Thanks to Playstation Plus, I’ve got a few of the previous games in my digital collection, but I haven’t really touched any of them. I tried Yakuza 3 when it was newer, but it didn’t vibe with me right away, so I sent it […]

Poochy & Yoshi’s Woolly World Promo Videos Are Adorable

One of my favorite titles of 2015, Yoshi’s Woolly World, was just ported to the 3DS. Relabaled Poochy & Yoshi’s Woolly World, it adds a mode that makes it easier for players to finish it by letting you use Poochy puppies as unlimited eggs and allows Yoshi to fly indefinitely. You can also get it bundled with […]
