Thoughts of the Day – Save Monopoly’s Scottie Dog!!

I want the Scottie dog to be part of Monopoly history for years to come.

But Scottie’s place in the game could be at risk with the ongoing Vote Monopoly contest, with 65 different pieces in the running to be a part of the board game.

I’m all about keeping the Scottie dog in the game of Monopoly. That dog is a champion, much like other great dogs… Like Lassie… Beethoven… and the Littlest Hobo.

Help me keep the Scottie dog in the game through http://www.votemonopoly.com. Support the cat too while you are at it!

Gameplay in this video is from Monopoly Plus for the XBox 360. Filmed using the XBox One’s Game DVR and Upload Studio.

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!

Thoughts of the Day – Does the Frame Rate in Star Fox Zero Matter?

There’s been a lot of talk around frame rate drops in Star Fox Zero lately.

Apparently, the game runs at 720 p and 60 frames per second, but occasionally drops to 40 frames per second.

My honest opinion… Who the Hell cares?

In all of my years of gaming, I’ve never heard so much talk about frame rates then I do now. Having grown up with Nintendos and Ataris, I really don’t give a crap about that and don’t think it should matter.

What does the game play like? Does it have a good story? That’s what should matter!

What do you think?

Thoughts of the Day – Could Final Fantasy XV Be Better On PC

Developers behind Final Fantasy XV believe that the game could be better on PC, as opposed to consoles.

That being said, developers are also saying they would likely re-build Final Fantasy XV from the ground up if they put it on PC.

My thoughts? JUST RELEASE THE DAMN GAME ALREADY!

Thoughts of the Day – What to Expect From Calgary Expo 2016

We’re three weeks away from the start of this year’s Calgary Comic and Entertainment Expo and I’m once again looking forward to the event.

Calgary Expo is one of the biggest comic conventions in my area, covering all things geek culture. Video games, card games, sci-fi, fantasy, anime, its all there to be found!

While I am disappointed there will be no wrestlers included in this year’s Calgary Expo, I am looking forward to many of the guests announced.

If you’re going to Calgary Expo this year, what are you looking forward to most?

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?
