NES A to Z vol 33

Lot’s of changes in this episode! Once again it is 60fps, but this time it’s in a real aspect ratio instead of some random garbage: 1920×1080. Also there is a new title screen and a slightly new layout. Let me know your thoughts! Also stick around until the end for some bonus footage.

  • Dash Galaxy in the Alien Asylum - 0/1

    I don’t know what the story of this game is. There is some kind of overworked where you move blocks around to clear the way to enter pipes. Once inside a pipe you end up playing a horrible platform game. Not much good I can say about this except that I feel bad for people that had it.

  • David Crane’s A Boy and His Blob - 0/1

    This game seems to be pretty popular and no one rags on it. Well I don’t see it. It’s essentially a convoluted point and click adventure game. Instead of pointing and clicking on random items trying to make progress, you randomly feed jelly beans to your pet blob to see if you can progress. I really do not enjoy this style of game. Who has time for trial and error anymore?

  • Day Dreaming Davey - 0/1

    Game starts with some asshole bully taking Davey’s new pencil of all things… How is Davey going to succeed in school if his pen is gone? So I guess Davey goes on a quest to get his pencil back … in medieval Europe? The game has daydreaming in it’s name so I suppose that is what is going on. He is imagining getting his pencil back? Seems pretty dark actually. Anyway this game is an overhead action adventure and it isn’t a good one.

  • Days of Thunder - 0/1

    Other than Pole Position, this might be the most boring racing game I have ever seen. I mean just watch the video and see for yourself.

  • Deadly Towers - 0/1

    Deadly Towers gets ragged on a lot on youtube channels. The difficulty is pretty insane. You start with 100hp but some enemies do as much as 50 to you (I think). The game plays like the original Zelda but with a slightly isometric view, but the difficulty is just off the charts!

AVDP EP20 | Interstellar | Memberships | Celebrity Freebies | Hyperthetical | Christmas Gifts




Topics Covered in this Installment of AVDP


  • Interstellar

    Yury has been dragging his feet in watching Interstellar which has been blocking me from talking about why I hate it. Luckily Malone has seen Interstellar and so I take this opportunity to air my complaints.

  • Membership Cards

    Malone has a serious problem with being pushed into signing up for store memberships. What ever happened to just buying a shirt and being on your way?

  • Companies that get destroyed by unforeseen technological advances.

    Some companies got absolutely destroyed by the explosion of smartphones. Think of companies like low-end camera retailers (Kodoak, Minolta) and navigation companies (Nuvi, Garmin). Smartphones all but replaced the need for the service and hardware these companies provide. What makes the situation more complex is they didn’t lose to a competitor, they got totally blindsided by a new market.

  • Celebrity Freebies

    Everyone has a celebrity freely, what are yours? What are mine? What are Malone’s? You better listen to find out.

  • Chuck Klosterman Hyperthetical

    A novel titled Interior Mirror is released to mammoth commercial success (despite middling reviews). However, a curious social trend emerges: Though no one can prove a direct scientific link, it appears that almost 30 percent of the people who read this book immediately become homosexual. Many of these newfound homosexuals credit the book for helping them reach this conclusion about their orientation, despite the fact that Interior Mirror is ostensibly a crime novel with no homoerotic content (and was written by a straight man).

    Adam recommends this little audio toy if you are looking for a good time.

    “SuperCollider is an environment and programming language for real time audio synthesis and algorithmic composition. It provides an interpreted object-oriented language which functions as a network client to a state of the art, realtime sound synthesis server.”
