Electrified Porcupine’s New Music (CD & Vinyl) Showcase Vol. 29

I’m back with my last music showcase of the summer.  I honestly don’t think I’ll be getting to another one until maybe the end of September but I did play a lot of catch-up over the last six weeks so my backlog has been eliminated! Advertisements

Ninja Gaiden Trilogy & Arcade Soundtrack Vinyl Box Set by Brave Wave

Ninja Gaiden for the NES is one of my favourite video games of all time. Not just for the 8-bit years. I’m talking ALL TIME.  If you’re new to my site, you can see the love I expressed for it HERE and for the 2nd installment HERE.

DuckTales (1989) for the NES (Nintendo Entertainment System) by Capcom

I thought long and hard about what classic NES game I wanted to write about next. Many were put on a list (and I’ll get through them eventually), but as soon as I wrote this game’s title down, I knew it had to be next because I couldn’t get the DAMN SONG OUT OF MY […]

Ninja Gaiden II: The Dark Sword of Chaos for the NES

The original Ninja Gaiden got love on my site as not only the first installment in my gaming section (and only one up until almost a year later) but also as one of the first things I chose to write about. I just love that game so much.

Electrified Porcupine’s New Music (CD & Vinyl) Showcase Vol. 16 -Sponsored by Mad Rush Media

Welcome to my newly rechristened musical showcase column.  I decided to name it because after a year of doing this, my “Treats of the Week,” weren’t getting posted weekly due to so many other things I was doing on the site and “Treats of the Week” doesn’t really portray to the people who don’t know […]

Double Dragon II for the NES

What’s this? Two gaming features so close to each other? Yeah, I know…I’m trying! I took a look back at Double Dragon a few days ago so it’s only fitting that I continue on with the second installment on the NES: Double Dragon II: The Revenge.

Double Dragon for the NES

I haven’t done a feature on gaming since I started the site. I figured I could juggle it all but with so many figures and music releases coming in, MOTUC figures to look back at, and so much more crap, I just keep skipping over it. As well, my time for actually gaming has gone […]

Mint in Box – Freddy Krueger NES Style by NECA

I’ll confess right off the bat: I’ve never played the NES game based on A Nightmare on Elm Street. I never saw it available for sale when I was a kid and I think I may have been just getting into SNES gaming by the time I knew it was out (and had sold my […]

Nintendo Greatest Hits Vol. 1

For the last couple of years, my buddy(ies) and I like to relax outside on the deck or around a table, cracking a few frosties, and playing crib. Yep, cribbage. What an excellent game! What goes well with sun, brews, and crib? Why streaming a lot of classic 8-bit and 16-bit tunes from YouTube, of […]

Mint In Box: Jason Voorhees 2.0 – NES Style by NECA

For my second feature on this Friday the 13th, I’m going to take a look at another Jason Voorhees figure from NECA. This one is based on the Friday the 13th game on the NES (the Nintendo system from the 80s) and his look (or colour palate, I should say) in that game.
