#15: Mega Man 11 Demo First Impressions
In this episode, I discuss my first impressions of the Mega Man 11 Demo. Overall I liked the demo. I feel as though Capcom is taking this new mega man in a positive direction. It also gives me hope for what future Mega Man X games might also be like. Its a short episode but a good one. Also, incase you didn't know, Grown-Up Pixels also has a facebook and youtube page. Check it out and let me know what you think. Thanks!

#14: Games Overload
In this video, I discuss the video game overload that I’m currently experiencing. There are so many great games out right now that I literally don’t have time to finish any of them. The problem isn’t so much that I don’t have the time, the problem is that I want all of these games and the reality is I won't be able to enjoy them all. Check out the video and let me know what you thought. Thank you everyone for listening.

#13: No Shenmue, Grandia 1 & 2, and Switch Party
Just wanted to talk about a couple of the things that have been on my mind today. The biggest thing I want to talk about is Shenmue 1 & 2. I’m still waiting for my game to arrive from Amazon. Although I’m having to wait almost a week later than everyone that bought it digitally, I really wanted a physical version of the game. I feel with the game as classic as it is, it’s most likely gonna be a collector’s item in the future. I also recently heard the news that Grandia 1 & 2 are going to be released this fall on the Nintendo Switch. I still own both games on their respective consoles but never finished Grandia 1. Lastly, I recently went over to a buddy’s house to play video games. Turns out that everyone that attended owned a switch, including me. Although the party was ALOT of fun, it did make me realize that the Switch doesn’t have as many good multiplayer games as I originally thought it did. Everyone owned the same games. It was sti

#11: Mega Man X OST
Episode 11 of the Grown-Up Pixels Podcast is 100% inspired by the recent Mega Man X Legacy Collection 1 and 2. As of lately I have been seeing Mega Man X everywhere. Most of my gamer friends are currently playing through the legacy collections and its been fun to see everyone talking about it and sharing their thoughts about what’s good and bad about the different games. By far Mega Man X is my favorite game in the entire series. With all the hype going around I felt what better way to celebrate the series than by sharing the soundtrack of my favorite game. I hope you really enjoy this episode because I really enjoyed making it. Where can you find Grown-Up Pixels * Subscribe to Grown-Up Pixels on iTunes * Subscribe to Grown-Up Pixels on G

#8: My Kids Video Game Playlist
Grown-Up Pixels Podcast Episode 8 is full of video game music and some music that should be video game music. This is a particularly special episode for me. While working on this episode my baby boy was born. We all spent two weeks in the neonatal intensive care unit, due to him having breathing issues. It was difficult to really work on anything while being in the NICU. I was able to finally finish editing the episode and get it out once he was home safe.

Grown-Up Pixels Podcast Episode 7 is full of new information and a brand new segment that I'm testing out for the podcast. We briefly go over the community question from Episode 5 and what I'm currently playing.

I'll discuss my second child, wanting to play my Nintendo Switch and getting back into the Nintendo 3DS. In the news portion of the podcast, I discuss Donkey Kong Country Tropical Freeze for the Nintendo Switch, the NES Classic being rereleased, and I celebrate 2 major birthdays that recently passed.

#1: Introduction to Grown-Up Pixels Podcast
Hello everyone, and welcome to the first ever Grown-Up Pixels Podcast. This is episode 1 and my name is Mario. I have been playing video games since the 80’s, starting with the NES. Ever since then I have been playing non-stop. In addition to playing video games, I also enjoy video game music. What are Grown-Up Pixels? Grown-Up Pixels was originally created to document my video game life. Since then I have slowly changed what Grown-Up Pixels is really about. It's now about creating a community around people that enjoy video games. More specifically, people that grew up in the 80's and 90's and are now adults, Of course, everyone is welcome, but because I was a kid during those years, I relate more with that generation of gamers. Many of us now have tons of responsibilities that require most of our attention but still very much enjoy video games. Some of
