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!
Alex has always wanted his own web series and now he has one. The only challenge is convincing him to put his videos on my channel.
I give you the debut episode of Kids on Classics. My goal with Dad Playtime is to show my kids the kind of games that I grew up on while giving him something to watch on his tablet (It’s 2018, he watches videos on a tablet okay? Get over it) that I know is safe for him to watch. He got to pick whatever he wanted to he couldn’t wait to try King of Fighters. Enjoy.
After a 7 year hiatus Chris and I are bringing back KMI TV! We have new social media accounts, new equipment and most importantly new ideas.
The only reason we stopped doing things in the first place was that we got older and needed to take time out to become adults, buy toilet paper, learn how to do taxes, and go from kids who liked to make random videos to adults who like to make random videos. During this time off the passion for what we were doing never went away, and now is the perfect time to bring it back!
KMI TV will focus on events and interviews from anywhere we can get to with a camera and a microphone, while my personal channel Dad Playtime will revolve around me exposing my kids to the old school games and toys I used to play with.
I hope you are looking forward to out new content as much as we are looking forward to making it.
