Capcom

The Originals

capcom_nintendo

I wanted to bring to light the original games that started it all for 2 of the most famous video game franchises of all time – Streetfighter and Punchout.  The reason is simply because many gamers nowadays know little of their existence.  While I tend to be more biased towards retro games, I still believe these 2 games to be the best ever in their respective franchises.  Its unfortunate many never got to experience them.  Hit the jump for more details.

 I’m making this post for two reasons. For one, I’m really excited about the 3ds sequels coming out hopefully this year and two, to show my brothers awesome speed run videos. The one posted below is great opener and shows how devastating bow gunning can be. So check out the video posted below and subscribe to my brothers YouTube channel if you dig it.

Episode 025 – Wii Play Catch

 

I want to apologize to all our listeners for our show taking a two month break. It wasn’t planned and unfortunately, couldn’t be helped. As always, thank you so much for continuing to listen. There were many games to discuss in this episode and felt good after a slow year. One of the games we discussed was Mario Kart 7 and the creation of the Wii Are Fanboys community. Above is the search code for our community. If you would like to download the show click HERE and I hope to race all of you soon.

10 Spooky Halloween Games for Nintendo Fanboys

Boo!!  Happy Halloween from Wii Are Fanboys.  I know its not Halloween just quite yet, but what I usually like to do in the weeks leading up to Halloween is to play lots of Halloween themed video games to get me into a spine-tingling mood.  So without further ado, here is my list of recommendations for an extremely ghoulish time this year.

Demake Game Profile: Super Smash Land

Have you downloaded Super Smash Land yet?  If you haven’t yet, what are you waiting for?  It’s a free PC game (created by Dan Fornace) that was inspired by the Super Smash Brothers series.  It was just recently released on 9/14/11.  Super Smash Land is Smash Brothers as if it were released on the Nintendo Gameboy.  Think of the game, Battle Kid for the NES, except that it never went to cart.  The visuals, and sounds of the game are of 100% pure Gameboy retro goodness.  As if you had to have another reason to download it, I’ve gotten some serious hands-on with the game, and I’m happy to report that, for a non-Nintendo made game, it plays extremely well.  Well done.  I am very excited for this game.  Curiously enough, we have never gotten a Gameboy version of Smash Brothers.  This game fills in nicely in that regard.  If you love the Smash Brothers series, you’ll naturally love this game.
