Version Comparison: Metroid II vs. AM2R

with 2 comments

Back in our 24 hour livestream, Fred did an impromptu episode of Version, our video series that compares the different versions of video games.  This time he delved into Metroid IIReturn of Samus and compared it to AM2R (Another Metroid 2 Remake), the fan created and now taken down remake.  This has also been added to both the Version and 24 Hour Livestream playlists.

The 2017 GH101 Fundraiser 24 Hour Livestream is Archived and Live

leave a comment »

Below is the entire playlist of videos from the livestream, but it would probably be better if you use YouTube for this one. The playlist can be found here. On multi-game streams (there were a few) you can find clickable links to specific starting points for titles.

It’s a self-playing list containing the 21 videos captured during the livestream. Two of the videos: “Fred plays Rock Band 3 with his brother and wife” and “Metroid 2 vs. AM2R” need some edits due to muting thanks to copyright claims, but are totally worth seeing and will be live in the next day or so. They will automatically be added to the playlist.

We are fully funded for 2017 and it’s thanks to all of you! It was a blast and we look forward to doing it again next year. Thanks for all who came out and all that check these videos out. If you would like to make a donation, it’s still not too late! We have a Patreon running with plenty of worthwhile stretch goals here and single donations are always available at bit.ly/gh101donate.

As is per usual for us here at GH101, 40 games enter (20 from each host), and 10 leave.  It’s nostalgic, it’s arbitrary, we may annoy due to the lack of Pokemon, but it’s our official Top 10 Gameboy games.

Podcast: Top Scores, Volume 3

Video game soundtracks transcend time to the right audience.  No matter how many you have heard, there’s always that track that escapes you or is just on the tip of your tongue that you can’t recognize.  Whether it’s nostalgia or a killer cut you’re hearing for the first time, the community and our hosts Fred and Jam have a great show of video game music this time around.  Missed the first two volumes?  Check out Top Scores, Vol. 1 and Top Scores, Vol. 2!

Please Note: Those that listened to the live show may have noticed a quality drop in the stream from time to time.  As a result, all music tracks were re-edited in as masters in this final episode.  You should notice no quality drops.
