g1 Spotlight: Explore the Dungeon Because I DON'T KNOW!
|Woodyman||Ivan2294||Noble Team 1|
Hello g1s, Ivan2294 here and this is the g1 Spotlight. I’m glad to finally write a blog again, even if it’s just for the promotion of others. I hope you guys have had a lovely Thanksgiving! Or as I like to call it, Tanksgiving.
It's funny because tanks don't have anything to do with the holidays.
Welp, failed attempts at humor aside, it's time for some music. James Ronald of Epic Game Music is here with a cover of ProJared's theme song! I've always like ProJared's Intro theme, but this guitar cover is just amazing. I can imagine Jared rocking out as he and Nuptup take on hordes of Zubats. Oh, and FYI the correct name of the song is Goodbye Summer, Hello Winter by FantomenK
g1 Features The Resurrection: Update #1
g1 Features lives on, and here's the latest update with their progress. Sounds like quite a good time over there, with game shows, Best Evers, Indie Games and the like. However, they still need help. If you want to help edit, moderate, or just write about something, head on over and let them know!
It's the time of year where Americans eat too much and then trample each other for good deals... isn't that every day? If you wanna discuss Turkey Day/Black Friday or make fun of Ahmuricans, go here.

This week the crew gave us many reasons to be thankful. We got two Video Game Vaults and an unboxing video!
Craig talks about an over-looked PS2 game that may just be one of the earliest examples of a cover-based shooter. It seems pretty hard, but I want to try it myself now! This game makes it's way into the vault alongside similar games like Metal Gear Solid.
Nick talks about his experience as the President of the United States of America at the mere age of 2. Or rather, he talks about a game that let him pretend to be the President at the age of 2. This old game lets you play as a shady president who alters the world.
Craig is back to mishandle brand new consoles, but this time Chad is here to help keep him from doing anything too stupid! You know, I really love the way Craig acts in these videos. It's exactly the thing I'd be doing, which might explain all the things I've broken over the years.
Alright, now we're getting to the meat of the blog! It's time for us to show off all the new content g1s have come up with in the past week. I think this calls for some more music. Once again I call upon the amazingness that is Epic Game Music, this time with a cover of the Space Harrier theme!
g1 Nfreak reviews the controversial Other M, the black sheep of the Metroid series. I've got to say, this guy makes many good points in his review about the story, and unlike many he also focuses on the gameplay. If you want to know more, check it out.
g1 E-Dog reviews Sonic: Lost World, the latest entry in the Sonic franchise. Is this title worth checking out or not? You'll just have to listen to this man's magnificent voice to find out for yourself.
g1 Dr. Retro does an unusual review. He reviews a special Sega Saturn made by the hardware manufacturers that made the original console. Quite interesting, and I imagine rare. And also there's Japanese, so I can pretend that you can pretend you're watching anime.
8-bit Eric reviews Nintendo's latest entry in the lovely Zelda franchise in this fairly quick video. He gets right to the meat of the game, so if a quick review is what you need, check it out.
g1 Overloading Toaster is here to talk about his 10 favorite DS games. Spoiler Alert, this guy really loves Pokemon! Still, he's got some pretty solid reasoning and some pretty solid games on that list too! How the hell does a toaster play a DS anyways? ....Maybe he's a Rotom?
Another list, this time for PS1 games! Infernikus talks about his Top 5 on said console. Man, this list brings back memories. Or it would if I'd ever had any major experience with a PS1, but instead I grew up with an N64. Still, this video shows me that I've missed out, might have to fix that some time. Plus dat voice, DAT SEXY VOICE~
g1 Zurachi talks about his favorite 5 Final Fantasy Boss Themes. He knows that Final Fantasy has a lot of music, so he just narrowed it down to boss themes. A good choice I might add, as I find boss music to be some of the best composed themes in RPGs, let alone videogames in general.
The guys from Hard 4 Games put themselves through hell for your entertainment. Watch as they enter the 5 stages of Grief with Battletoads....on the Gameboy. This should be good.
As said above, g1 Features is back and this is the first episode of the revived g1 Interviews. This week, Master Wayne interviews JoshG95 with questions about how he found ScrewAttack, and his favorite shows!
Metal Jesus Rocks covers some more over-looked and underrated games on the over-looked and underrated console, the Dreamcast. If you've been looking for some more games, this vid's for you.
After a quick hiatus, g1s Cyrax and Digital Debaser are back to talk about the launches of two major consoles, the Xbox One and PS4. Tune in to the 2nd greatest 30-45 minute podcast on the site!
Now here's an interesting topic. 2 very similar games within the same series, but different enough to warrant a comparison. g1 The0nlykyd takes on the question of which is better: Majora's Mask or Ocarina of Time? Maybe if I'd played either I could give my own opinion, but alas Wind Waker shall always remain my true one and only.
g1 Elmo 3000 talks about some rather interesting puzzle games on the DS. These all seem rather enjoyable, and in hindsight it seems to me like the Nintendo DS may just be the greatest puzzle game system in history.
Tom shows us how to get the Screwattack Gamer Pics for 360 and Xbox One. Check it out, Rate it, and wear your g1 pic with pride!
TMoFG5 is over, so come on down and see the results! Each team tried their best, but the winner is.......(this is the part where you click the link to resolve the cliffhanger)
And the pick of the week is...
I've got to say, this man made a pretty encompassing review. I thoroughly enjoyed his silly antics, and he made some decent points about the gameplay and such of each game. Entertaining and informative, it's the type of review I enjoy most. And while not exactly hardcore titles, these games do have something to offer. So if you want to know if they're for you, check out his review.
That's it for me g1s, it was nice to finally write a blog again. Expect me to disappear for a while, because writing this was tougher than I thought.
Still, no regrets. This is g1 Ivan2294 signing off. Oh, and thanks to g1s Woodyman and Nobleteam1 for helping me out, couldn't have done this without y'all guys.
