WiiU Quick Review

by Staub

It was a cool Sunday morning in East Meadow, NY. As I waited with small handful of eager nerds, the East Meadow Gamestop sat closed but anticipating one of the biggest releases of the holiday season. Promptly at 9 am the front door opened and we were allowed in to pick up the newest and greatest from Nintendo, the WiiU.

Wreck-It Ralph Review

by Staub

 

In the wake of Hurricane Sandy, Long Island was left in a horrible mess. Towns were without power, people were forced from their homes, and we all were fighting for gas. The past week has tested the people of America especially those who live in New York and New Jersey. Come last Friday, there were few things to be happy about. I sat at my parent’s house planning my girlfriend’s birthday party to the best of my ability given all of our plans had been thrown upside down due to Sandy. I decided to get a group together to go to the movies for her birthday. We had all been cooped up and surfing the finest couches for the past week. While Sandy did take away people’s homes and belongings, we were going to try to not let her take our positivity and good spirits. We decided that we were going to see Wreck-It Ralph.

Iron Man 3 Trailer!

by Staub

 In a world where at least three super-hero related films release each year, we all stop a little when the words, "Iron Man" are whispered. 2008's Iron Man, is still revered as one of the greatest, if not THE greatest superhero films of all time. At the time it was exactly what Marvel needed to propel it's new Marvel Film Studios forward into the next decade. Without Iron Man's success we would have never seen Captain America, Thor, or last Summer's blockbuster success, The Avengers.

Square Enix NYCC 2012

by Staub

Among all of the costumed maniacs (myself included), comic book giveaways, and bank accounts emptied, NY Comic Con 2012 was a great place to play video games. As I’ve said a few hundred times, NYCC has embraced gaming as the awesome younger brother of comic books. While at NYCC I had the privilege to meet up with Square Enix for both an amazing cocktail party and a private meeting with some of their developers. Very little Final Fantasy need to apply here, because this event was all about Tomb Raider and Hitman: Absolution.

Gaming at New York Comic Con 2012

by Staub

New York Comic Con 2012 rocked my socks! It was possibly the best trip to the Javits Center on New York’s west side that I have ever experienced. The air was filled with electricity as my bright sneakers gently graced the carpeted floor of the show. As with every year, my goal was to PLAY EVERYTHING! I owe it to my friends and fans to get a hand on all the newest and greatest games at Comic Con. I was blown away by some of the games, and left wanting more from others. As gaming has become more and more a greater part of the convention, it has become much more essential for me to play more of these games.  I got to play some WiiU, some Tomb Raider, and and even a little slice of RPG Heaven.

How I Learned to Love Kirby

by Staub

2012 marks the 20th anniversary of Nintendo’s pink puffball, Kirby.  Nintendo was awesome enough to release Kirby’s Dream Collection a special collection of most of Kirby’s games from his inception until the Nintendo 64. It excludes any of his DS, GBA, or Gamecube adventures, it obviously doesn’t include either of his Wii games. I was never a Kirby fan growing up. It’s not that I didn’t like the hungry fellow, I just wasn’t as familiar with him as I was: Mario, Sonic, Donkey Kong, etc.  Kirby has always felt like he was the odd man out. I was never too much of a Gameboy kid, so his first game, Kirby’s Dream Land, was lost to me. By the time Kirby’s Adventure released in 1993, I was so deep in SNES and Genesis games, that it was nigh impossible to get me to go backward with any game short of Super Mario Bros. 3. So Kirby was lost, I played Kirby’s Superstar a little bit when I was a little older, but the pink-guy wasn’t the rage throughout my childhood.
