Ramblings – E3 2018 Preview

Hey all! This is Brandon Myers, back with a new Ramblings.  Now, 2018 has been a rather off year for Ramblings in general, but it’s time for E3, and I wouldn’t miss doing my annual articles.  E3 is one of my favorite times of the year.  So today I’ll be doing my typical preview of the events.  I may do a single recap article next week once all the press conferences are over.  Probably on Friday or something, once the event and all the official news coverage is done.  Anyway, let’s get to the preview!

Ramblings – The Super Mario Super Medley

Hey everyone, Brandon Myers here with a special, very short edition of Ramblings.  Basically I wanted to use this space to promote a really awesome video I found on YouTube.  It’s a 70-person musical collaboration featuring music from the entire Super Mario series.  It’s titled The Super Mario Super Medley, and it is simply awesome.  I cannot praise this work enough.  It is just the most amazing video game medley I’ve ever heard.  Unfortunately, as I write this, there doesn’t seem to be a way to buy and/or download the medley, which is disappointing.

But enough of my talk, let’s see the video.

Ramblings – Nintendo Switch games and even more Overwatch

Howdy all!  Brandon Myers here, back with another Ramblings.  Now, back in my 2017 Year In Review, I said I’d do a review of Splatoon 2.  Well, instead of giving it a solo review, I’ll be talking about it alongside a few other Nintendo Switch games I own or have rented.  And in the end, I’m going to be discussing Overwatch, yet again.  Hey, as long as Blizzard keeps updating the game, I’ll keep playing, and I’ll keep writing about it.

Before we get to the meat of the column, please consider supporting me on Ko-Fi.  Thanks. More

Ramblings – 2017 In Review

Hey guys, I’m back!  In text form!  Yeah, the YouTube thing kind of turned into a bust.  In all, things sort of went downhill in my real world starting in August, which was even before I tried the YouTube thing, but I won’t get into any of that.  2017 was one crazy year, and I thought I would go over some of it.  Think of this as a year in review, thus the title of this article.

Oh, before I get into the good stuff, I started a Ko-Fi page!  Now, for those unfamiliar with Ko-Fi, it’s a relatively new service where creators or content providers can sign up and receive donations.  All donations go directly through PayPal, meaning Ko-Fi doesn’t take a cut.  All money goes to the creator, minus PayPal’s standard fees.  I thought I’d give it a shot and see if any of you fine people are willing to give me some extra money for my work.

So, if you’re feeling generous, you can click this link and “Buy me a Coffee.”

Okay, enough shilling.  Onto the year in review. More

WWE 2K18 Vs. Fire Pro Wrestling World

The latest Video Game Ramblings YouTube video is here!  I talk about WWE 2K18 and Fire Pro Wrestling World.  As I note in the video description, when I talk about The New Day’s theme music, I mean the part where Big E says “It’s a New Day, yes it is!”  Also, my mentioning “button mashing” was cut off, likely when I used the truncate silence option in Audacity.  Sorry about that.

Anyway, here’s the video.  Enjoy!

Video Game Ramblings Intro

Hey all, Brandon Myers (“The Rambling Gamer”) here.  You know me from my Ramblings column, but now get ready for my YouTube channel!  I’m going to give this a shot to see how I do.  I doubt I’ll be the next Geekdom101, but I hope I can carve my own niche, at the very least.  This is just an intro video for my channel.  My first official video will come in just over a week, if not before then.

If you have any feedback, please leave a comment on the video, or Tweet me at @vgramblings.  Thanks for watching!
