Weekly Video Game Track: Lego Island Hospital

Just listen to that low quality goodness! I remember playing Lego Island as a kid over and over again. I also remember being terrified of the Brickster at the end of the game throwing pizzas at him to slow him down and donuts to cops to make them...

BlurryPhoenix Streams: Sonic Mania (Pt. 6)

[HTML 5 video is here] (Originally streamed on 9/9/2017) Time to grind out the remaining Chaos Emeralds. Which, in the process, I figured out a good way to also grind out some levels. Who knows how many I’ll need to get the “true ending” of Sonic Mania. That...

BlurryPhoenix Streams: Sonic Mania (Pt. 5)

[HTML 5 video is here] (Originally streamed on 9/9/2017) I think this video had the most number of times of me going “that’s interesting!” or “that’s cool!” and genuinely meaning it. The whole background/foreground mechanic, shrinking mechanic, and the boss of Act 2 in Metallic Madness Zone was...

BlurryPhoenix Streams: Sonic Mania (Pt. 4)

[HTML 5 video is here] (Originally streamed on 9/9/2017) Back to back levels of fire levels. Now, I know Oil Ocean Zone wasn’t “really” a fire level, but you could set parts of it on fire. I was just super excited to hear Lava Reef Zone music again...

BlurryPhoenix Streams: Sonic Mania (Pt. 2)

[HTML 5 video is here] (Originally streamed on 9/2/2017) Flying Battery Zone gives me so much nostalgia. Which is weird, because I didn’t get to it that many times. As a kid, it was really only Angel Island Zone and Hydrocity Zone that I would hit on Sonic...

BlurryPhoenix Streams: Sonic Mania (Pt. 1)

[HTML 5 video is here] (Originally streamed on 9/2/2017) You have no idea how giddy I was to finally play this game. Or, maybe you do… Regardless, it is so nice to play a “true” sequel to Sonic & Knuckles. I’m loving the bosses! I mean, play Puyo...

Weekly Video Game Track: Jingle Town

I have no idea how much a buddy of mine and I played Snowboard Kids 2.  Thinking back, I believe Jingle Town was one of my favorite courses to play.  The Mario Kart-esque snowboarding game on the N64 was unique, fun, and frustrating.  I remember getting to the...
