I did this one for you PapaKenn! I was a fan of Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess, however it just didn’t compare to previous Zelda games, so it didn’t make my Top 5 list. However, Midna was probably the best “fairy” in any of the Zelda games. Midna wasn’t as annoying as Navi or Tatl, [ Read More ]
Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater had one of the best intro songs with “Snake Eater”. It was so good that I was really skeptical how good a live performance would be. Boy, was I wrong. Ingrid Gerdes, vocals in the video, nailed it. ———————————————————————————- Plug.DJ Digital Arcade (where I find most of this music): http://plug.dj/digital-arcade/ Website: http://www.blurryphoenix.com [ Read More ]
After watching a let’s play video of Hohokum, I fell in love with this song. Increasing Ambition starts off nice and calming, but then the synth comes in. Hohokum is such a random, but beautifully done game. It’s easily along the same lines of Flower. ———————————————————————————- Plug.DJ Digital Arcade (where I find most of this [ Read More ]
In order to ring in the new year, I figure I’ll give us a Rolling Start into the new year (terrible joke is terrible). Another song coming from one of the first arcade games I played, Daytona USA, this is probably my second favorite song. ROLLING STAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAART!!! ———————————————————————————- Plug.DJ Digital Arcade (where I find most [ Read More ]
Let’s just enjoy the genius of Turrican 2‘s music.

Heavily influenced by the Megaman games, Shovel Knight has been loved by critics. The retro graphics gives that sense of nostalgia that everyone seems to be looking for. In addition to that, the music also holds that same retro feel. Plains of Passage gets played later in the game, but boy is it such a good [ Read More ]
Don’t worry, no extended breaks or anything like that. Just taking a few extra days to get the next episode of Discovering Doctor Who ready. Also, a few comments on upcoming SNACK-KENN episodes, thoughts on the DDW community, and presenting the idea for a special Holiday Edition “Ask Me Anything” video.
Starcraft has been one of my favorite PC franchises. When Starcraft II: Wings of Liberty was announced, I jumped on the pre-order bandwagon and pre-ordered the collectors edition. The pre-order came with a ton of stuff, one of which was a CD of the Starcraft II soundtrack. The following video is a mix of all [ Read More ]
Shadow of the Colossus has really stood the test of time. The immense scale of each of the colossus compared to your character makes Shadow of the Colossus feel massive in scale. The crazy thing about it though, there aren’t any enemies apart from the colossus. So, to create a game around solely boss fights [ Read More ]
Today, Papa Kenn tries some Hershey Kisses and Kraft Marshmallows that tout the hallowed flavor of autumn itself: Pumpkin Spice!
