Fortune Street

Posted in News with tags , , , , , on December 8, 2011 by Mike

I just got an e-mail from Nintendo about a new Wii game called Fortune Street. WTF… did anyone know this was coming? It looks like a cross between Monopoly and Culdcept Saga (which was already a cross between Monopoly and every card-battle game ever created), two games I suck at but still enjoy. I watched Nintendo’s trailer, and it looks like there’s no card battling, but other than that it’s very much like Culdcept Saga. Oh and it’s Nintendo, so it has Mario characters and the dreaded MINI-GAMES. But Square Enix is involved too, so it also has DRAGON QUEST CHARACTERS!!! And… AND… it has local and online multiplayer.

Metacritic has it at a 71 so far, which is just a few points below Culdcept Saga’s 75. I’m curious… I’m not quite buy-curious, but I’ll keep an eye out for this one at my local Redbox.

Mario in a non-platforming game...unheard of.

With the upcoming release of Mario Kart 7 on the 3DS, I thought it would be a good time to reflect on another great classic of the annals of gaming…Super Mario Kart. This trend of reviewing “good” current and retro games will not last forever here on Three Guys One Joystick, so enjoy the kind words found in this article about Super Mario Kart. Read more »

Gaming Is Bad Ass

Look how bad ass gaming is...this dude is so happy because owning that Atari did not suck!

There are many things in the gaming world that really get under our skin at Three Guys One Joystick. So I’ve made this quick (but short and in no way complete) guide to a few things in the gaming industry that don’t piss me off (I can not speak for Derek and Mike though, but we usually agree). I decided to make a list of the things that don’t suck in gaming because an exhaustive list of all things that DO suck would be ridiculously long (albeit funny as hell). So, please join me in this journey of a few of the things you should learn to appreciate and/or make an effort to do in the gaming world.

Episode 1: Three Guys, First Joysticks (Part 1)

Posted in Podcast Episodes with tags , , , , , , , on June 18, 2011 by Mike

Its a joystick.

Here it is – the first part of the first episode of the first podcast by the guys at Three Guys One Joystick!  In this episode, we discuss some of our earliest gaming memories.

The episode turned out a little longer that we had expected, so we’ve broken it into two easily digestible parts.  Check it out, and let us know what you think!

Special thanks go to HORSE the Band for letting us use their song Birdo (iTunesAmazon) as our intro theme!  And thanks in advance to Konami for not suing us for using music from Contra!
