A History Of The D-Pad

Most of my generation and younger can say with ease that we grew up with a video game controller welded to our hands, and as geeky as it is, the video game controller is a cultural icon now.

Youtuber The Gaming Historian gives a closer look at the history behind it. Check out the video below if you really want to get your geek on

Capcom Brings Back The Disney Afternoon Collection

Get ready to relive your childhood in the best way possible.  Capcom is bring 6 titles back from their deal with Disney in the 80s and 90s.  For $20 you’ll get Ducktales, Chip N’ Dales Rescue Rangers, Darkwing Duck, and Talespin along with sequels to Ducktales and Rescue Rangers which I don’t remember but I am all about.

For younger players that don’t remember how hard games like these were they have put in special options like REWIND which can help you keep from accidentally jumping into the abyss which was always my problem.  I’d yell at my controller “I HIT JUMP DAMN IT!  WHY DID IT DO THAT!?!?!”

They’re beng released on XboX One, PS4 and PC on April 18th.  Are you excited for the return of these titles?

Thoughts On WWE2K17

Christmas was good to me this year with WWE2K17 waiting in my stocking. After a day of updates and DLC, I finally sat down and played it. You gotta remember I was still playing WWE2K16 for the XboX 360 since its release. Now playing 2K17 on an XboX One is a big improvement. I still have to work out the new submission reversal and as I said in 2K16, there is a one to two second lag when reversing a punch or grapple. But over time I’ll get the hang of it.

The roster alone is stacked! and adding DLC to it, the match making is endless. I went ahead and unlocked all legends and I’m very pleased with the likes of Dusty Rhodes, Arn Anderson, Scott Hall and Kevin Nash. With DLC I did get Goldberg and Nakamura, both worth the couple bones I spent.

I also dabbled in community creations thanks to Drunken Zombie Facebook Fan Dave Drasheff, and found about ten CAWs. Such as Steiner Brothers, Hollywood Hogan, and Chris Hero. With some CAWs looking so good there’s no need for DLC at times. But you gotta have that entrance and theme music.

Overall WWE2K17 is a good wrestling game, a big improvement from 2K16. I know I will be playing this game for a long time.

Friday The 13th The Game Brings In Tommy Jarvis

Ever since it was announced I was super excited about this game.  Why has it taken this long?  The idea of a multiplayer game where one player is Jason and you hunt down, kill, and dismember camp counselors controlled by other players seems like a no brainer.

Add in that you can select specific skins to pick your favorite Jason, different weapons to make the kills variable, and mo-capped by Kane Hodder himself and this becomes a must buy.

Today they broke the news that a new playable character may in fact give Jason a run for his money.  Tommy Jarvis from parts 4-6 has come to Camp Crystal Lake.  This Tommy is based on the version from part 6 when Thom Mathews played him.  He sports the classic denim jacket and bad attitude.

I can’t wait to jump into the game on either side to stalk/run through Camp Crystal Lake and see what Easter Eggs await.  The website http://f13game.com/ allows you preorder the game now.  It looks like the multiplayer version will hit early 2017 with a singler player version coming out later in 2017.  Are you picking this up?
