Life Long Quest – Why Mega Man Legacy is Worth Buying!

Mega Man Legacy Collection is an amazing game for the retro collector looking for another opportunity to enjoy the blue bomber.

This is a great chance for you to play Mega Man 1-6 for the Nintendo again, without pulling out your old systems and carts.

Here’s our thoughts on Mega Man’s latest collection.

GameOn First Impressions – Sonic Speed Energy Drink

We’re trying something different on GameOnGNT today… literally.

Its a taste test video, as I got a chance to pick up a whole bunch of video game related energy drinks from Calgary at the start of the summer.

So I figured why not drink every energy drink and film the results?

We’re starting things off with the Sonic Speed Energy Drink… ITS BLUE!

GameOn Unboxing – Retro Game Treasure – March 2016

We’re playing catch-up with games to play!

We’ve got a quite a few Retro Game Treasure chests to bring your way, so lets get to it!

Back in March, we got an interesting mix of games, including one of the best superhero games from the Nintendo 64 and a game that will make you nostalgic for the late 90s and early 2000s.

Lets go on a Legendary Journey with the Retro Game Treasure Chest!

Jeff’s Gaming Journal – My History with Super Mario Bros 3

What a wonderful and magical game Super Mario Bros 3 for the Nintendo was. Seriously, who HASN’T played this game?

Mario 3 really is one of the greatest games of all time and I have a long history with it.

Bear with me, I’ve got a lot of story telling to do this time, involving video game tournaments and my days in college.

Lets talk about Super Mario Bros 3!

Onward to Adventure – Pokemon Red and Blue – Which Pokemon Should You Start With?

Today’s episode does not focus on the debate between Charmander, Squirtle and Bulbasaur. While the starter debate is always a good one, that’s not what we’re talking about here today.

I’m talking about which Pokemon you find on the first couple of routes that you should keep around and build up?

Today, Pokemon like Rattata and Nidoran get their chance to shine!

Jeff’s Gaming Journal – Jurassic Park (Genesis)

Jurassic Park for the Sega Genesis is without a doubt, one of the best games on the franchise that I’ve ever seen.

While this game isn’t entirely faithful to the movie, its as good as it can get in the 16-bit generation. You get your opportunity to play as Grant or you can say ‘Screw That!’ and play as the velociraptor!

Seriously, its a game where you get to play as the raptor, the coolest dinosaur of the 1990s! What more would you want?

Jeff’s Gaming Journal – Magical Tetris Challenge (N64)

Now here’s a game that’s great for the entire family!

In our November Retro Game Treasure Chest, which was catered to our three-year-old daughter, we got Magical Tetris Challenge. This game is something that everyone can enjoy and in my opinion, the perfect Tetris game for the Nintendo 64.

Forget Tetrisphere, this is the game you want to pick up if you are looking for a retro Tetris fix.

Best of all, you’ve got the Mickey Mouse gang as your main characters. Its great, its absolutely great!

What do you think of Mickey Mouse games? Is there a game with Mickey Mouse that catches your attention and was memorable in your eyes?

What about Tetris? Who here doesn’t like this classic puzzle game?

Coming up next, we turn to Game Boy Advance games and we’ve got some Thoughts of the Day features coming your way!
