OILD: Goland Coal City

Day 4 of Obligatory Ice Level Day! This is a goofy, fake holiday meant to build hype for The Speed Gamers’ Zelda marathon, which starts December 12th! We’re raising money for Mercy Corps, so I hope you all help us out by promoting and donating! The Final Fantasy marathon was so great. We raised a bunch of money, wore a bunch of zippers, and learned a bunch of lessons about the power of friendship. That’s why today’s ice level is Goland Coal City, from Final Fantasy Tactics!

OILD: Flipper-Flop

Is it day 3 of Obligatory Ice Level Day already? Awesome! This is a goofy, fake holiday meant to build hype for The Speed Gamers’ Zelda marathon, which starts December 12th! We’re raising money for Mercy Corps, so I hope you all help us out by promoting and donating! This is a level that isn’t really a level, but it does have the perfect trifecta of cute. It’s Flipper-Flop, from Rhythm Heaven Fever!

We’re raising money for Mercy Corps, so I hope you all help us out by promoting and donating! And now, for a level from a game nobody but me cares about anymore. It’s the Cliff, from Primal Rage!

OILD: Chill Penguin Stage

The first day of Obligatory Ice Level Day! This is a goofy, fake holiday meant to build hype for The Speed Gamers’ Zelda marathon, which starts December 12th! We’re raising money for Mercy Corps, so I hope you all help us out by promoting and donating! And for the first OILD here, we’ve got a classic stage! Our Mega Man marathon had a wonderful comeback, so naturally we need to start off with a classic Mega Man X stage. Of course I’m talking about Chill Penguin’s stage, from the original Mega Man X game!

Obligatory Ice Level Day 2013!

Hey everyone! It’s that time of year! The time when ice blocks float in mid-air, snow covers your screen, and arctic wildlife tries to maul you! It’s Obligatory Ice Level Day, the time that we celebrate that one type of stage that makes its way into just about every video game…. the ice level! The new website will be up soon, but let’s get into what makes up O.I.L.D.

The actual day itself is unofficially December 25th, but really the event goes on pretty much all month long. So don’t wait until then to participate! Celebrate all month!

All through December I’ll be updating The Speed Gamers’ blog with screenshots and write-ups of different ice levels. I’ll even link to different ice level songs and show you where to download great ice level remixes! This holiday is admittedly ridiculous. Don’t take it seriously! Let anyone get involved! Don’t be one of those jerks that excludes people from a fun, silly holiday.

The first OILD post will be up in just a moment, so get ready!

Rings of Saturn

Hey! You know what you love? Mr. Saturn! You what else you love? NOT BREAKING PUBLIC DECENCY LAWS! For these reasons, I’ve designed a Mr. Saturn shirt! You can buy it here, but it’s for sale TODAY ONLY! That means you have less than 12 hours to get yours! And heck, if you want to buy some extra to send as future marathon prizes, who’s to say you’d be wrong…
