For a set that broke things up into 3 pieces we’re having quite the time getting past the first part. I can’t believe I didn’t expect Alex to do what he did right after finishing that section. I hate to be like Lord Business but he brings it out of me. Enjoy!
With some fun doc style videos planned in the next couple months here is a look back at a set of videos I edited for the New York Times. If you enjoy running or you’re too lazy to get off the couch, this women should inspire you. Clara Horowitz Peterson is amazing! Running while pregnant 🙂

It was only a matter of time before my 3 year old son Lukas wanted to get in on the action. I had to find a game he could play and stumbled across Jumping Pop. I had no idea what it was but it quickly became clear that it was the grandfather to Luigi’s Mansion. All I could think of though is why Nintendo didn’t just slap a Ghostbusters logo on this game instead of publishing the Ghostbusters games we ended up with. Fast and addictive. The kids loved it. Enjoy!
Main Event Time! The Mega Powers are the new number 1 contenders and are set to face Ted Dibiase and Andre the Giant for the tag titles I didn’t know they had in a rematch of Summerslam ’88. Andre in this game might be the first really tough boss in a video game that I remember (I never got to Mike Tyson in Punch Out!). You definitely need a load of quarters to get through these guys. Luckily I’m home and have unlimited credits. I have a good feeling about this. Enjoy!
We’re on the road! On a trip to Orlando, Florida we couldn’t not visit Legoland (or is it LEGOLAND?). And when you visit Legoland (LEGOLAND?) you have to go to the stores and Alex could not get his eyes off of the Star Wars Hoth Medical Chamber set. The kid is obsessed with the medical droids and has an affinity for labs in general so this was a no brainer. Enjoy!
Full disclosure, I didn’t fully remember how violent Metal Slug was when I decided to play it with a 5 year old boy. Luckily in my version of the game we shoot love lasers at bad guys to give them happy naps. Enjoy!
If you have read this blog during its first run it wouldn’t take long for you to figure out that I am a wrestling fan. More specifically, I’m an old school wrestling fan. That’s why this game was such a big deal to me. WWF Superstars was the first WWF Arcade game and by 1989’s standards they pretty much nailed it. Watch my climb to the top of the tag team division as I lead the Mega Powers to glory. The final match however was so epic (and honestly so long) that it had to be it’s own video. Come back next week for part 2!
The setting, lighting, sound and night might not have been good for it, but Alex had a new Lego set to build and I wasn’t going to let it go by undocumented.
After playing King of Fighters, Alex got a taste for fighting games and wanted more. Since he tends to be a button masher (he’s 5 so of course he is) I decided to show him on of the best button mashing fighting games. Marvel Super Heroes vs Street Fighter. You can pull off amazing moves completely by accident. He also sees his love of octopuses and the color green combine when he discovers Shuma-Gorath. If that’s not enough, we get to learn how Alex reacts when he loses. Spoiler alert, he doesn’t like losing. Enjoy!
With the kids asleep and some free time on my hands I take a shot a making a video by myself. Hopefully I can be as entertaining as my 5 year old son. Captain America and the Avengers was a game I played endlessly on Sega Genesis. Not because it was so good that I couldn’t put it down, but because there weren’t many games I could actually beat and this was one of them. Enjoy!
