Happy holidays, GameCola faithful! For those of us in the United States—where we just got done celebrating capitalism with our best-known All-American holidays of Thanksgiving, Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, and Cyber Monday—let’s not lose track of the real reason for the season. That’s right…I’m talking about November 30th.
So, pull up a chair and get ready for a tale about November 30th Past. We’ll be riding back through time and visiting GameCola’s historical November 30th celebrations from 2016 back to 2009.
We start our ride through time with a bang, watching the exciting conclusion of Nathaniel Hoover’s blind playthrough of the My Little Pony/Mega Man crossover fangame, Mega Pony. If you haven’t seen the full playthrough, be sure to check out the video summary post!
Remember when Sega stopped making videogame consoles, but kept making Sonic games? Matt Jonas does. That’s why he wrote this review of Sonic Generations for PC to celebrate November 30th in 2011.
What’s more Outside the Mainstream than an early 2000s indie physics game for PC? In true GameCola spirit, Stu Gipp gets it right with this short-but-sweet review of Gish.
2010 was a big year for November 30th. Here we see a second post celebrating the holiday, this time about the release of 2010 Game of the Year (according to Paul Franzen) Two Worlds II.
As we like to remind you on “This Day in GameCola History”, time began somewhere around 2009…however, here we see what happens when we venture too close to the moment the universe came into existence. While the article—aptly named “The Hero of Time”—still exists, the featured video does not! As matter bubbled into existence out of the quantum foam, the video must have been destroyed by its paired anti-video, while our featured article managed to split off to become a permanent part of the universe as it exists today.
What a wild time of scientific discovery. It’s truly amazing to see evidence of our theories about the early universe.
