It was a month in the making, but here’s the video revealing your choices for Game of the Year. I’m hoping to do this again next year, but done better so yes, any problems you see or have seen, I’ll most likely address them next year. Fifteen people voted, over sixty games were slimmed down to just ten! Who won? Jump in to find out! ((Spoilers: It wasn’t Duke Nukem Forever))
The Legend of Zelda series is 25 year’s old today, and that seems especially relevant considering that the first TSG marathon was a Zelda marathon. The Legend of Zelda revolutionized action adventure game design in a way that resonates in numerous games such as Darksiders and Beyond Good & Evil. Hopefully I can get it done today, but I am planning to write a feature highlighting some of the series numerous copy cats and how it’s very rigid mechanics have been elaborated on in other games.
I hope Link has a good 25th birthday of silence and grunting.
In this second episode of the TSGWrite cast Phantomarauder is missing and Localretard fills in. Slow week for video games so we talk about Jellybeans,Soap,Movies,TV, and a little bit of games. As for the songs in this episode the first one is Twin Peaks Theme from the Twin Peaks soundtrack and then we go to Thanks Mario, but our Princess is in another Castle by The Mountain Goats & Kaki King and after that Rococo from Arcade Fire off of The Suburbs in honor of their Grammy win, and finally we end with a remix of the ending theme from Pee Wee’s Playhouse by Brian Ellis that you can hear here. Also stay tuned or just skip to the end if you get bored because after the ending song we have a special surprise from Oculin to You.
Hey gang! Want to spread the word of The Speed Gamers’ greatness? Check out The Speed Gamers’ page on TV Tropes! There’s also a page for Psychotaku! And the other day I found out that someone made a page for VG Flash! So, what can you do with these? Well, firstly, add to those pages! List as many relevant tropes as you can on there! On the flip side of the coin, if you know of a trope that relates to TSG, Psychotaku, or VG Flash, add them as examples on those tropes’ pages! For example, the page for the Slippy Slidey Ice World trope mentions TSG. Who knows, maybe if TSG-related info shows up enough on the site, people will get curious and find visit our homepage to learn more!
Remember: Follow TV Tropes’ guidelines. Don’t spam them! Just use the site for its intended purpose and you’ll be fine 😀
