  • Dear Readers: GameCola Does Disney World

    So I went to Walt Disney World this month for my senior class trip. A good time was had; TV theme songs were sung, travel mugs were rendered semi-useless, pirates were made to cry -- but I won't bore you with the details. I'll just show you pictures instead!

    Gamers haven't seen much in the way of 2D fighters lately, and when I showed Guilty Gear X2 to my friends, I understood why.  Only the most hardcore of us picked up the game and enjoyed it.  Others.

    Dear Readers: Advertisers Don’t Get Videogames

    Has anyone else seen that commercial, I think it's for some sort of battery, that uses the impossible portable gaming console? The system's molded to resemble a Game Boy Advance, but I wasn't fooled. Too generic looking. Anyway, what a terrible commercial! It makes me wanna take that damn "going and going" bunny and tear its face off in a violent manner. In the ad, a kid and his grandpa (wait, old people don't play video games! ) are playing two of the GBA wannabes when the batteries of the gpa's system die, causing an error screen to crop on on his screen and the young whipper snapper to win the game. That's so dumb! The boy wouldn't win, his screen would just freeze, we all know that. So Energizer or whoever has turned off the entire gamer demographic by airing this commercial, the very demographic you'd assume they'd be trying to reach by airing a commercial featuring video games! Grrr, idiots.
