GAJ Game Club Episode 10 – Metal Gear Solid: Ghost Babel

We’re going back to Metal Gear Solid for the GAJ Game Club, but this time, it’s a smaller version. Jason Arriola and JoeStar played the Metal Gear Solid: Ghost Babel for the Game Boy Color. It’s a definite odd choice for a Metal Gear Solid game, but one that keeps the spirit of the older entries in the […]

GAJ Game Club Episode 8 – Metal Gear Solid

Our Game Club is back and it’s better (and longer) than ever! Jason Arriola and John Lucero are joined by Conor Mahood of The Movie Express podcast, and JoeStar to dig deep on the Playstation classic, Metal Gear Solid. As hard as it is to believe, Metal Gear Solid is nearing 20 years old and that largely […]

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 […]

77 – Stay On Target

Jason Arriola and John Lucero really have a hard time staying on one subject for long. Jason finds an opening to finally talk about Tactics Ogre. Castlevania Netflix series? We have some thoughts. And we announce our next GAJ Game Club game at the end, so stick around until then! We know you like us, so you should like us on Facebook […]

64 – R-Rated As F***

Jason Arriola and John Lucero gush about Yakuza 0 because they both have a pulse, so why wouldn’t they. It’s then onto the news about NISA bringing out a shit ton of niche titles, a mode in Ultra Street Fighter II no one asked for, more Final Fantasy XV cross-promotion nonsense, Breath of the Wild DLC, […]

Two More Games Join Xbox One Backwards Compatibility

For you Xbox One owners out there, two more Xbox 360 titles have joined the backwards compatibility list. Rocket Knight, originally released back in 2010, and Shadows of the Damned, a Suda51 game released in 2011, are now both playable on the Xbox One. Not huge news, but it’s always nice to see the catalog continue to […]

Eight to Consider: Games of E3 2016

This year’s E3 has come and gone. After sifting through hours and hours of content, I’ve decided to talk about some of the games that caught my eye.  Of course, I didn’t actually attend E3, so I haven’t played any of these titles.  All of my opinions are based solely on gameplay videos, trailers, and […]

Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain Review

Platforms: PC, Playstation 3, Playstation 4 (reviewed), Xbox 360, and Xbox One It might not come across as too much of a surprise, but I loved Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain. I’ve made no secret of my being a fan of the series, but I also probably spoiled how this review is going to go […]

Pro Evolution Soccer 2016 Review

Platforms: Playstation 3, Playstation 4, PC (reviewed), Xbox 360, and Xbox One It’s the pre-season friendly fixture and the crowd is buoyant, their excitement palpable, the atmosphere electric. ‘The King is Back’, ‘Long Live the King’ they chant. Things often go well in these first few games, there’s no pressure – it’s a time for […]

Rock Out With Your Cart Out

I’ve been a fan of video game soundtracks since I first heard Koji Kondo’s handling of the original The Legend of Zelda. Hearing the music from that game, like so many other people my age, takes me back to a simpler time in my life and reminds me of the passion that I had, and […]
