Jason Voorhees Plays Mortal Kombat

Friday, May 8th, 2015





Right in the middle of a review of Jason Voorhees in the new Mortal Kombat X, I got a surprise visitor. Things got rather uncomfortable in a hurry.

Mortal Kombat X Playthrough With Commentary

Tuesday, April 14th, 2015





Mortal Kombat X came out today! I hit up a midnight release last night and sat down to get a feel for it. This new playthrough w/commentary showcases a couple of the character’s special moves and a few fatalities. Also, we take a quick look at the classic cartridges from the SNES/Genesis/N64 era. Time to get nasty!








NBA 2K15 MyCAREER Finals Playthrough With Commentary

Monday, April 13th, 2015





This is a follow up video to the first NBA playthrough. I’m in the Finals of MyCAREER mode and playing on Hall of Fame difficulty to make things a bit more interesting. This game is much closer and more entertaining than the last one. Went right down to the wire in OT.

Sat down and did a playthrough w/commentary on my MyCAREER on NBA 2K15 for PS4. Best basketball game currently available. Commentary covers improvements with this year’s game over 2K14 and other random musings.








Alien Isolation: Nostalgic Mission 9 Playthrough With Commentary

Saturday, October 25th, 2014





Mission 9 in Alien Isolation takes us through as a team of explorers on LV-426 in search of the derelict spaceship that is emitting the distress signal that the crew of the Nostromo honed in on in the original Alien film from 1979. It is a total throwback to the old film and I couldn’t resist making a playthrough vid w/commentary. Hope you all enjoy!








Hacking My Samsung Galaxy Note 3: Root, SafeStrap, Flash Recovery, Free WiFi Tether, Custom OS, Flash Player

Friday, December 13th, 2013





The Galaxy Note 3 is here! Well, you already knew that. But, happy to say it’s in my hands now. :D

The HTC DNA served me well over the past year, and other than one lone issue with the SIM card (which was easily corrected), I never had one problem with this phone. I upgraded solely because I felt like it. Just wanted a new device with a better camera and faster performance, and oh boy, did I ever score! The Note 3 is easily the best smartphone I have ever seen to date. This wasn’t just a modest upgrade from last year’s flagship device. It was a quantum leap. Boots up in mere seconds and never looks back. Never hangs or gets overloaded. Just an all-around badass. I won’t spend too much time going into the specs, as the link above will tell you all you need to know. For now, let’s get into what you’re here for. Let’s root this monster and remove the OTA shackles.

Grand Theft Auto V 5 PS3 Loading Story Mode Freezing Glitch SOLUTION

Monday, October 7th, 2013





Stuck on 43% complete on GTAV and story mode loading for hours? It happened to me too, and it absolutely sucks. At present there is no acknowledgement of the glitch from Rockstar, much less a fix. But, we do have a nice work-around!

I was able to track down a save file that’s 48% complete, and puts you just a couple missions after the 43.3% corruption glitch. I have resigned the file and made both a North American and European version. They’ve been completely decrypted and are free of their original profile stamps. All you have to do is download the zip, extract the folder to a flash drive, pop it in your PS3, copy it to your saved games, and enjoy not having to start all over.

Little Mac vs. Mike Tyson 2013

Thursday, September 26th, 2013





Little Mac vs. Mike Tyson on Fight Night Champion.

Got a little curious one night as to how The Dream Fight from the old school Punch Out might play out on a modern day boxing game. The results were amusing to me.








Double Dragon II (NES) Playthrough With Commentary

Monday, August 12th, 2013





Detouring ever-so-slightly from the LJN track we’ve recently been on, this week I happily dust off one of my favorite beat’em-ups of all time — Double Dragon II: The Revenge for the NES.

Still one of the best ever.
