YouTube Highlights, Weekly Edition #55

Greetings one and all, and welcome to our latest YouTube Highlights post! TGIF, right?! We’re still knee deep in the world of Crash Bandicoot, and we continue to dodge and weave our way through fighting games, and we’d love to have you along for the ride! As always, if you like what you see here…

YouTube Highlights, Weekly Edition #54

Happy weekend, everyone! Um, well…happy almost-weekend might be more appropriate. But even so, the actual weekend is a mere handful of hours away, and are ever so glad for it! (Yeah, we’re just going to skip over all the Friday the 13th stuff, because Saturday the 14th is more our speed, haha!) However, before we…

YouTube Highlights, Weekly Edition #53

Is it Friday already?! Not that we’re complaining, but where the heck did the week go?? No matter, that, because it’s time for our YouTube Highlights! And what goodies we have to share this week! From more 3D platforming antics involving everyone’s favorite bandicoot, to the semi-return of our fantastically fun fighting game series. As…

Keeping the Last Console Generation Alive

Over on Destructoid, an interesting article appeared recently titled “Getting the most out of your PlayStation 3 in 2018.” It serves as a nice walkthrough both for those new to the console and those who might very well be on their third or fourth or seventh iteration of it. And it no doubt begs the…

Tricks, Treats, and Feats: The Gyrocopter and Philmobile

            If you were to go trick or treating, I bet you’d be mighty surprised if, rather than candy, you were given the keys to a car.  While such a thing would probably not be all that exciting to a young child, who would surely rather a candy bar or peanut butter cup, a vehicle…

Listmas 2016: Top 6 Locations in Sly Cooper

It was this past year that I finally got around to playing all four games of the Sly Cooper series, a series I fell in love with, in fact, within the first hour.  The whole stealth gameplay was very new to me, and I also greatly enjoyed the characters.  One other area where this game…

YouTube Highlights: November 2016

Happy Thanksgiving! (Or, happy Thursday if Thanksgiving isn’t your thing.) Though it’s a holiday for us, we’re not taking a break from posting our monthly highlights from YouTube. If anything, we’re more than thankful for our subscribers and supporters there, and here…and everywhere. Thanks to you, you..and YOU! To everyone who’s motivated us to keep…

The Simple Pleasures of Exploration in Sly 4

When buying a house, they always say location is everything.  Never have I heard this applied to video games, however.  What people typically cite as being important to them in gaming is an engaging story or interesting characters, or simply good gameplay.  While I would agree that all of those are far more important than…

Unforgettable: Murray’s Geisha Dance from Sly 4

I haven’t done one of these posts in quite a while.  By now, I’ve played a lot of video games, and let me tell you, sometimes it feels like I’ve seen it all.  As a result, it is rare for something to happen in a game that really catches my attention, that’s so different or…

Newcomer Alert: The Completion of the Sly Collection

At long last, I have done it.  After getting 100% in the entire Sly Collection, including the mini games (they are not worth your time; I only played them to get my last few trophies), I can safely say I am the Sly series’ newest fan.  Before I get into my thoughts on the series…

Newcomer Alert: More Than Halfway Through Sly 3

Why, hello, everyone.  While I originally intended on writing about my thoughts halfway through my playthrough of Sly 3, this didn’t quite happen.  I am about 48% through the game, but I have clearly made it much closer to the end than I realized when I ended up back on Kaine Island where the prologue…

Newcomer Alert: Initial Thoughts on Sly 3: Honor Among Thieves

Two games from the original Sly Cooper trilogy down, one more to go.  That’s right, everyone, I have just started Sly 3: Honor Among Thieves.  I am writing this particular post two hours into the game rather than just the usual hour, and…I’m not quite sure what to say yet.  Okay, first off, this game…
