Mellow Gaming: Godzilla Save The Earth


If you’ve been reading my reviews on The Film Dump you may have noticed that I just got done reviewing 27 Godzilla films in a row. To tie into all this Godzilla madness, that I’m now finally done with, here’s myself and Paul playing Godzilla Save The Earth on Xbox in the latest episode of Mellow Gaming! Click the link below for the video.

It’s a veritable monster mash


Mellow Gaming: Future Cop LAPD

So we finally got around to recording something new for Mellow Gaming, although there is at least one more WWE 2K14 video to go. So, we went a bit retro and decided to play a little Future Cop LAPD. This was a game Paul and I played a fair amount in our youth-ish days and was pretty much always in our rotation of dumb action games along with Twisted Metal and Rogue Trip. And now we’re sharing that big dumb fun with you. As usually I’ll post the episodes here as they get put to Youtube over the next few weeks. One day we’ll do a massive recording session and be able to put out vids daily. One day.

You have 15 seconds to comply.

Mellow Gaming: Twisted Metal World Tour

Yes it’s that time again! The time where I bother to get another of these videos made. Gotta love the strict whenever-the-hell-I-feel-like-it schedule I’ve stuck to so rigidly. This time Paul and I are playing the game that made me (and Paul) fall in love with the Playstation, Twisted Metal World Tour. Here’s a game I owned before actually owning a Playstation. That’s how much I liked it. I had to have a copy I could take to my friends whilst I waited to get my own console. Unfortunately, it appears all that time spent playing it 15 years ago hasn’t translated to some sort of latent muscle memory. As you’ll see. Also, Twisted Metal World Tour isn’t the only new Mellow Gaming video we’ve made. There may well be something else coming soon to sit along side this. I say “may well”, I should say that there is. There is another video to come. Click the link for Twisted Metal World Tour fun!

Remember the PSOne Twisted Metals after this? No? Then you’re lucky.

These Streets Be Full Of Rage… 3


Finally got around to making new Mellow Gaming videos. One day I’ll make a new Retro-Perspective. Anyway, this time Myself and Paul decided to play some Streets of Rage 3… after I had to purchase the Streets of Rage collection from Xbox live because Streets of Rage 2 would only start up as a trial. Despite me having achievements for it. And having redownloaded it. And being online. Yay for online DRM requirements eh? Anyway, click the link below to watch the various parts as I get around to uploading them!

My rage has never been so unbridled.

Retro-Perspectives No2: Super Mario Bros – The Lost Levels

Hey look at this! I eventually got around to making a second video. I did plan to do a Mystical Ninja Starring Goemon video but had memory card issues that have now been sorted. Instead I covered a game that has always been the bane of my gaming life, Super Mario Bros – The Lost Levels. This game is hard. like really, really hard. Every object and enemy in the game is placed solely to cause pain and misery. Because of this I suck balls at the game and only got as far as world 2-4 after about 90 minutes of play. That’s pretty bad for a Mario game. Anyway, this is my Retro-Perspective video which is where I look at an old game and assess whether it’s still worth playing today.

Bob Hoskins described the Mario Bros movie as “the biggest piece of shit he ever did”.

Retro-Perspectives No.1: WWF Attitude

Re-edited the video in the hopes WWE won’t try to remove it again. Not monetising it though cos I’m willing to bet it will get removed.

Well here it is. the first glorious/terrible post on The Games Dump. Took me a while to make this video as, to be honest, I’m a total amateur at all things editing. I did try making a video years back but it was awful. This is my first attempt at actually presenting a look back at a piece of retro gaming. For some reason I chose WWF Attitude for the PSOne. What’s really good about this is that I got halfway through editing it before I realised I had the Dreamcast version of the game. So apologies for the crappy graphics. The Retro-Perspective posts will be similar to this. Mostly factual but light hearted looks at older games. Where possible I’m gonna try to take on ones that don’t often get mentioned. I also have plans to do a few live commentary videos and ones called No Continue where I see how far I can get on a game I suck at without using a continue. Some of those will be short. For now click the link to see my amateurish as hell Retro-Perspective No.1…

Stomp a mudhole in this post.
