ocremix legacy gameboy 25 anniversary

Hard to believe, but it has in fact been twenty-five long years since the GameBoy first hit the street, with its fancy green-ish display and all those amazing games. Guess that means I’m old? Anyway, if that’s not a good reason for OverClocked ReMix (OCRemix) to expand their massive and awesome catalogue of free tunes, I don’t know what is. Read the rest of this entry »

From the Vault: Remembering Super Mario Bros.

Super Mario Bros. (1985, NES)

Remember back in 1985, when Mario went on a quest through the Mushroom Kingdom, in order to rescue a princess named Peach? This guy was a man with a mission and he certainly had balls! Goombas got stomped, turtles were bounced on and then he threw their shells all over the place; nothing could stop him. Except, upon making contact with any living being, he would die.

Ginormous Super Mario World Collaborative ROM Hack Released

While there’s certainly no shortage of Super Mario World hacks, they’re rarely this expansive. Doesn’t matter that the eighty-six levels in this one aren’t all from the same creator either, since they’re all immediately playable from the world map. Points for effort. Read the rest of this entry »

Halo Composer Martin O’Donnell Fired Without Reason, Wins Lawsuit

Bungie may have long since moved on from Halo, leaving it in the capable hands of 343 Industries, and apparently they’re in too much of a rush to leave it behind, as mistakes were made. These include the firing of Martin O’Donnell, the man behind Halo‘s music since Halo: Combat Evolved, which in turn ended up costing Bungie $95.000. Read the rest of this entry »

The App Wrap Up – July 25th, 2014


Heya GM readers, and welcome to this week’s installment of The App Wrap Up! It’s funny that each week when I look through the releases I think to myself, “Gah, there’s nothing here, except for this one game. I guess I’ll just have to review it”. The problem is, I keep making that statement prematurely, and then go on to find other games that I think are worth drawing attention to for whatever reason.

As always, The App Wrap Up is here to showcase the iOS releases that I found interesting this week based on their trailers. Without further ado, let us begin! Read the rest of this entry »

Using Games as Tools in the Classroom

Math Blasters Episode 1

Who remembers Math Blaster? It was a blast to play (and I won’t apologize for that pun). It was a game designed to be educational, teach math, and still be fun. Best of all, it was played in classrooms way back in 1983. Imagine that, in a time before we even questioned whether games are art or a valid part of society, the videogame was already making a home for itself in the education system.
