Being born in 1994, I missed out on both the NES and SNES eras. Although familiar with 2D games, I grew up playing 3D games at home, while 2D games provided a portable experience. That’s not to say I never played the classics. Super Mario Bros. 3 stands to be one of my favorite games. Unfortunately, I did miss out on Mega Man, early Zelda games, Duck Tales, and other classics that hold a special place in gamer’s hearts.
Yacht Club Games has given me a taste of all the best parts of that early era in gaming. Shovel Knight has put all the best aspects of iconic titles — thoughtful combat, unique level design, stunning pixel art, a dope soundtrack — into, what I easily consider to be, 2014’s best game to date.
Have your heard the news? No? That’s what this post is all about. Here at Go Left Gaming, I have decide to start a weekly vlog over on Go Left Gaming’s YouTube channel. Not only will this allow me to tackle gaming news and topics I may not write about, the vlog will also help me practice my camera time skills and become comfortable discussing topics, both in video and audio formats. These are the baby steps toward something bigger and better. I hope you enjoy them and you can watch them all over on Go Left Gaming’s YouTube channel. I will also try to create a page here on the website to host all the videos so that they are in one, convenient place. Go check them out and always remember, go left!
