Gaming videos for your New Year morning's enjoyment!
Happy new year, everyone! 2013 has come and gone and the odor of gunpowder from last night's fireworks has mostly drifted off with the wind, but we at OMGeek have one more relic from 2013 to share. Actually, make that two -- the holiday edition of the OMGeek podcast will go up later this week as well!
This week's Wid Wed is an assorted smattering of things that defined 2013 in one way or another. Let's start with something gentle and obscure.
http://youtu.be/wgzU3nybN5Y Okay, ha ha, enough with the drug jokes. I included this game here because 2013 saw a ton of great indie adventure titles see the light of day. I'm also an enormous fan of the Quest for Glory series, so I picked this game to represent the lot. Heroine's Quest can now be downloaded for free here.
Hearthstone: TotalBiscuit's 30 Legendaries Deck!
http://youtu.be/dI-QfA8qZn8 I think this is going to be big this year. Truly! I chose this particular video because of the crazy novelty of it, but if you've never seen Hearthstone in action before and therefore have no desire to play it, maybe this will change your mind.
http://youtu.be/ryDdIypDqhE DR. WEEGEE. 2013 was, among other things, The Year of Luigi, although now apparently it's going on stretch on into 2014. With all the attention Luigi is getting, I'm worried that he'll cease to be my go-to guy in Smash Brothers for whenever I feel hipster and different. Dr. Luigi the game is basically more of the puzzle silliness started with Dr. Mario so many years ago, but I gotta say that watching Luigi do that silly shuffle while holding a giant pill is priceless.
The Top 5 Fail Moments of 2013!
http://youtu.be/RbRbXkx4gPQ You all probably have your Best Of lists and your Top 10 Games lists and so on, so let's take a while to look at the worst of 2013 in gaming. Let's look back at what went wrong and prepare ourselves this year. Or, you know, point and laugh at the silly people.
STAR CITIZEN UBER ANALYSIS VIDEO: Physics!!!
http://youtu.be/Y3m5fji9Z0Q CAN YOU FEEL IT? IT'S COMING. SOON. VERY SOON. And just in case you haven't been following the community, check this video out to get an idea for how hardcore (insanely so? maybe?) the fandom has become.
And that was 2013, ladies and gentlemen. If you think my list is too arbitrary and silly, let me know in the comments section. Share some of your favorite videos from this year too! Thanks, guys!
