Uncle Willy

He has been playing video games for longer than he would like to admit, and is passionate about all retro games and systems. He also goes to bars with an NES controller hoping that entering the Konami code will give him thirty chances with the drunk chick at the bar. His interests include vodka, old-school games, women, vodka, and women gamers who drink vodka.

Deadpool 2 “Wet on Wet” Trailer Released

What am I supposed to say here? This is a trailer for the upcoming Fox’s upcoming Deadpool 2. Everyone remembers how insane the marketing campaign for the first movie was. Did anyone expect anything different this time around from this teaser trailer, ” Getting Wet on Wet?” I’ll tell you what no one could possibly expect: BOB ROSS! The storyline for the teaser trailer is no...[Read More]

South Park: The Fractured but Whole Review

Developer: Ubisoft San Francisco Publisher: Ubisoft Platform Reviewed: PlayStation 4 Release Date: October 17, 2017 Acquired via: Purchase by Reviewer As a fan of South Park: The Stick of Truth, and of the TV series that birthed it, this game was a no-brainer. I just refused to buy it at launch because I’m old and gruff and hate everything. Now that I have it, I am very pleased. With exceptions. S...[Read More]

Star Wars: Battlefront II Called Out for Borderline-Abusive Game Mechanics (UPDATED)

I’ve tried to stay away from the loot box shitstorm after a few articles highlighting their insidious bullshit. Apparently, EA wants everyone to keep talking about it with regards to Star Wars: Battlefront II. So I will. These bastards want the venom? I’ll dispense the venom happily! EA’s Star Wars: Battlefront II has been fighting negative publicity for a couple of weeks. Their loot box system, w...[Read More]

BlizzCon 2017: World of Warcraft and Less Important Stuff

Last year, I ponied up for my BlizzCon 2016 Virtual Ticket. I’m not posh enough to afford a trip to California, hotel stay for that weekend, and two tickets for BlizzCon (my daughter would disown me if I went without her). Besides, there was little news I cared about. I only wanted news on Overwatch and Diablo III. Those were the games I was playing. StarCraft II was nearing its end, and I never j...[Read More]

“Nintendo Hard”: Bringing People Together Since 19XX

In the year of 20xx… One year ago, my daughter forced me to challenge her. She loves to play video games, but she’s far from what I consider to be a gamer. Her experiences are limited; the games she’s played the most are The Sims 3 and Left 4 Dead 2. That’s not a bad thing; I’m happy I can share my love for video games with her in whatever way I can. We even play Left 4 Dead 2 together on oc...[Read More]

Retro Review: House of the Dead (Saturn)

Release Date: March 1998 Developer: Sega AM1 R&D Division Publisher: SEGA of America, Inc. Last year, I decided to do a Halloween-themed Retro Review. I took a look at Castlevania: Symphony of the Night because I love the game. But in a twist, I chose to look at the Japanese SEGA Saturn version. The game was different enough compared to the U.S. PlayStation version that it made it a novel revi...[Read More]

Destiny 2 on PC Swings Banhammer Early

Destiny 2 officially released this past Tuesday on PC and saw heaps of initial praise. I figured that would be a foregone conclusion. I’m not a fan of the series; I’m not even a fan of FPSes. But I felt there was no way an MMO FPS series like Destiny wouldn’t do well on the platform. The series is essentially the unholy marriage of Halo and Phantasy Star Online. I figured there was no way that wou...[Read More]

Thor: Ragnarok Final Trailer Released

Too much info in trailers!!! I promised that I would post more video game-related content. The video game-related content was kinda bitchy. I need to recenter myself. To do that, I’ll talk about the latest Thor: Ragnarok trailer. FUCK! PUNISHER WAS RIGHT! THEY RUIN EVERYTHING IN THE TRAILERS!!! Whoops. Sorry about that. The bitchiness came out again. Under control, I promise. Anyway, for tho...[Read More]

SEGA Spartan: A Whole Lotta Nope

Not being optimistic here I will forever accuse Digital Crack brother-from-another-mother Punisher of trolling me into writing about this. Further, it’s my belief that he wants me to write this so resident Sony fanboy – and reformed SEGA fanboy – Grumpy Joe can have sparks fly out of his ears that are bright enough to be seen in space. Punisher denies it. I think he’s full of shi...[Read More]

The (Single-Player) World is Not Gonna End

It’s the end of the world as we know it! I remember being dropped off at school one day way back in the sixth grade. This was before the NES and stuff. There were a bunch of adults in front of the school that day. They were holding up signs and chanting something I didn’t care to catch. I didn’t care to catch what they were chanting because the signs they held said everything I needed to kno...[Read More]

Personal Top 5 – Fighting Games

Round 1: FIGHT! It’s been a great couple of years for fighting game fans like me. I’ve been able to gorge myself on quite a few titles. Some have been pretty awesome (Tekken 7 and Injustice 2); one has been absolute balls (Street Fighter V). On the horizon, I have Dragonball FighterZ and Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition (i.e. what the original game should have been out of the gate…no, I’m not bitt...[Read More]
