A VR review: “Relaxing Super Mario Jazz”

Picture yourself in a Nintendo themed jazz club with a martini in hand (or a lemonade if you are under the legal drinking age.) Now imagine a group of musicians, dressed up as Mario, Luigi, Toad, and Princess Peach along with a host of others.

Poem- MegaMan’s Blast from the Past!

It’s year 20xx and the world’s in a cluster/ Dr. Light just put the finishing touches on my MegaBuster/ As I look around, destruction robot parts in the streets/ It’s me and my dog Rush against the world and I hold the key/ To save humanity, from robot masters created for terrorism/ Even my ownContinue reading “Poem- MegaMan’s Blast from the Past!”

Poem- Bittersweet Memories

It’s alright to think of past times and cherish the memories/ The pure love we share with others creates unique synergies/ As days goes on and hearts heal and yet and still it takes time/ People don’t understand thoughts many times, are bittersweet like vintage wine/ It’s quite alright to feel the pain of lossContinue reading “Poem- Bittersweet Memories”

Watch “Bit Brigade performing Mega Man 2 at MAGFest X” on YouTube

  These guys are amazing! A ton of talent in one video. I love people that follow their passion, and it is obvious that they love rock music and gaming. Guitar riffs, loud drums, and neon lights along with Mega Man music makes for a great night! Enjoy retro lovers! V.R.

Zelda Poem- Link, A Hero’s Moment

Where did these green clothes come from, how did I get here?/ Why do I look around and there’s nothing but an open field here?/ I observe and see the boulders and a couple of trees/ In dusty Hyrule field, no weapon, magic, or rupees/   My name is Link, I just got word thatContinue reading “Zelda Poem- Link, A Hero’s Moment”
