NES Power Hour

A couple years ago, Tyler, Chas and I decided it would be a good idea to do a power hour and talk about Nintendo games while we recorded it. That first recording eventually turned into Now Loadin’, the video game site Chas and I ran before Stew Over. In other words, this is the beginning. Tyler went through the effort of syncing up the audio recording with the following video so that you can follow along with us. So go grab a shot glass, eight beers, and enjoy a trip down memory lane with us.

The Disturbing History of How Much I’ve spent on S...

Before we get started here I need to make one thing clear. No, it’s not that I love Mario. You know that already. And no, it’s not even that I regret what I’m about to lay before you. The one thing you need to know before you read this article is that we’re...

The Top Ten Racing Games of All Time

I have a random post for you readers today. I was thinking about my favorite racing games, a genre that has really died off in the last couple of years. I feel like today all you get are super realistic games and the creativity and originality has pretty much disappeared. Regardless,...

Nintendo World Store

I’ve had a couple of weeks to ruminate on my trip to the Nintendo World Store and, as promised in my article on my trip to New York, I’d like to share my thoughts with you great readers. Ever since I was a little kid, I’ve loved Nintendo. If you listen to the Loadcasts, you...

Greatest Game of 1990: Runners Up

Dr. Mario           Dr. Mario is my favorite puzzle game of all time. Although the single-player mode was fun and engaging, the multiplayer mode is what really makes Dr. Mario superior to Tetris in my opinion.  The impact of Tetris can’t be...

Greatest Game of 1990: Super Mario Bros. 3

People often stop me on the street and ask, “Hey, Kevin, you’re an expert on video games and a handsome devil to boot. What’s the best NES game of all time?” My response is always the same: “No doubt. Super Mario 3. What’s not to love about this game? Let’s start with...

Greatest Game of 1989: Dragon Warrior

A game of the year draws near… Dragon Warrior First, let’s get a few things straight. Dragon Warrior is better than you. Dragon Warrior is better than your girlfriend, your wife, and certainly better than your children. Dragon Warrior is better than Mother Theresa and...

Best Game of 1988: Runner-ups Rant!

I’d like to note first, before getting into two games far more deserving of the “Best Game of 1988” distinction, that R.B.I. Baseball is overrated, frustrating and if it was a person and had a physical presence it would probably smell bad. First game that’s...

Best Game of 1988: RBI Baseball

Regardless of performance, every kid on a Little League roster in 1988 completed his season with a trip to the local, crappy pizza parlor. In my hometown, this place was called Ledo’s. Forget about the pizza, the only thing anyone wanted to do at this joint was play R.B.I....

Super Mario Bros 2: The Doki Doki Tragedy

“What’s in a name? That which we call a rose By any other name would smell as sweet.” -Romeo and Juliet (II, ii, 1-2) When Shakespeare wrote the above he could not have foreseen Nintendo’s unholy ability to sell video games at any creative cost. Would...

1987: Mike Tyson’s Punch-Out!!

[Occasionally, we here at Stew Over are not content to talk about just one game per year. 1987 is one of those years.] While I don’t disagree with Tyler that The Legend of Zelda was the greatest game of 1987, Mike Tyson’s Punch-Out!! has to be one of the closest seconds we...

Greatest Game of 1987: The Legend of Zelda

I maintain that The Legend of Zelda is the greatest game of all time when measured relative to the circumstances and time period of its release. The game brought the most engaging and story-rich genre, the action RPG, to the video gaming masses. Zelda’s complexity was unmatched...

Greatest Game of 1985: Super Mario Bros.

[Welcome to a special segment titled the Greatest Games of All Time. This running segment will run every Friday and will highlight the greatest game of the featured year (or a game we could convince an editor to write about). We start today with the Greatest Game of All Time, Super...
