What a year it has been, filled with ups and downs as we prepare for 2018. So I figured I would crap out some typical “Best/Worst of 2017” post for all of you to bitch about my choices later. So without further ado, here are… MATTO'S FAVORITE AND LEAST FAVORITE MOMENTS OF 2017! FAVORITE GAMES/MOMENTS … Continue reading 2017!
Depending on the circumstances, I am fine with being wrong. Can’t always be right about things, but much to my shock it turns out Nintendo had two new Metroid games in the works. One, which is coming out soon (September 15th!), is a full reimagining of the Game Boy title Metroid 2 for the 3DS. … Continue reading Why I am excited for Metroid: Samus Returns
In only a couple of days Splatoon 2 will be out and I will be playing it immensely, because what I played of the recent Splatfest was awesome. However, with that said, Nintendo released the Nintendo Switch Online phone app and everyone on the internet is having a meltdown over it being terrible and shitmonglers … Continue reading So I heard you don’t like Switch’s voice chat app…
I was disgusted today to see that the remaster no one asked for, Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy, had sold out of pre-orders at some stores. As someone who played a lot of video games in the late 90's, I can tell you that these three games are shit. Outside of Japan, there were precisely … Continue reading Crash Bandicoot was shit 20 years ago and is still shit today.
E3 is next month, so how about Uncle Matto treats you to E3 predictions I pulled out my ass? No? Well shit. YOSHIAKI KOIZUMI WILL HOST THE SPOTLIGHT IN SOME FORM I absolutely loved Koizumi hosting the Switch reveal in January and the first real Nintendo Direct of 2017. While Reggie and Bill have proven … Continue reading Stupid E3 Predictions
A fellow user by the name of Travis Touchdown on VG Facts recently brought to my attention and others this fan comic. Besides the not-so-obvious fact this is a Metroid comic strip, that is Samus with a punchline that makes absolutely no sense, but the comment she makes Samus say at the end is actually … Continue reading Short-Sighted Ignorance
I like talking about video games, but I also like talking about hilarious and/or stupid bullshit that you sometimes don’t think is important, but actually is. Today, I am putting on my gaming historian glasses to talk in-depth about an aspect of video games we sometimes think is always a good thing, and it is! … Continue reading The MGS2 Effect
Imagine being a slave to convention and never living up to your full potential. That is the worthless fate of the majority of mankind. Not Dhoulmagus, though. This man is the most powerful jester in the world, stunning towns with high-level magic and traveling the world doing whatever he pleases. This isn't an article for … Continue reading Dhoulmagus – Pity Piece
It also says something when I couldn't even find a solid price on a Gamestop site for the PS VR Headset. On Amazon's American site, new ones go for over $500 American. I just don't know anymore. (Images captured from CBC News website and EB Games Canada.)
Right, so. Nintendo had it’s big Switch reveal, and most of the Pietriots, myself included, were there to watch it. So while everyone is busy trying to downplay the positive reception to the reveal (ie selfish YouTubers, Game Jounalists, and those scared of motion controls still), I decided to list some of my favorite moments … Continue reading Matto’s Favorite Switch Presentation Moments
A meandering guest review.
It’s time for another Durpthrough, but this time it is something I wanted to do for a long time. I like Mario games, enough to do in-depth reviews of them years ago, so I thought to myself “hey, why don’t you do video playthroughs of them?” Granted, it isn’t the most original idea on the … Continue reading Matto’s Mario Madness [Part 1 – Super Mario Bros.]
