GameCube Week | The Legend of Zelda Bait-and-Switch

GameCube Week begins on In Third Person! We start with the curious case of one of gaming’s most notorious bait-and-swich!


Flashback to the year 2000. At Nintendo’s now-defunct Space World show, they revealed the Nintendo GameCube. Though I had concerns with the console’s cutesy looks and its asymmetrical controller, one demo that was shown gave me hope. Little did I know the one thing I clung onto would lead to the ultimate disappointment.

It’s GameCube Week at In Third Person!

Nintendo’s cute gaming box gets the spotlight in this week of themed posts! GameCube Week begins tomorrow, with a post-a-day relating to the lunchbox that could. We’ll revisit a few games from my past, one of the biggest swerves in Nintendo history, and a dive into the demo disc that changed my life. There might even be…something different and very personal at the end of this run!

Hope to see you tomorrow and for the rest of the week as we celebrate GameCube Week at In Third Person!

Arcade Week | Pinball is Alive and Well at Tilt Toronto

Arcade Week concludes at In Third Person! Let’s end the series with a spotlight on one of the coolest gaming spots in Toronto! Maybe I’ll see you there someday!


By the time I started visiting arcades in the late 80s and early 90s, pinball machines were already on the decline. Losing ground to arcade video games and other amusement games, they were basically extinct by the time I was tall enough to see the boards.

Finding a pinball machine in the wild these days is tough, but Tilt in Toronto is doing the world a favour by keeping pinball gaming alive.

Arcade Week continues! Today, we take a look at some of the games that aren’t video games or pinball machines.


The arcade is home to many different kinds of games. I gravitate towards video games and pinball machines, but there are other other attractions at most arcades to keep one entertained. Here are a few of my faves!

Quarter up! #streetfighter #streetfighteralpha2

Arcade Week continues! Online play is great, but there’s nothing quite like playing Street Fighter in the arcade!


Traditional arcades may be long gone, but a few times a year, I’ll stumble upon a Street Fighter arcade machine at a convention or other public establishment. Whenever I see one, I always make it a point to play it for the novelty, but my hype levels go through the roof every time there’s a random stranger on the other end ready to battle. These days, it’s my goal to stomp out every one I play against at the arcade as a petty means of reparations for all the losses I took as a kid.

Arcade Week | The First Arcade Game I Ever Beat

Arcade Week begins on In Third Person! Many of us have played games in the arcade before. But have you actually beaten one? If so, how much did you pay to see the credits roll?


Arcade games are designed to provide bursts of thrills that suck as much money out of you as fast as possible. Due to the economic realities that come with trying to play any arcade game to completion, I simply didn’t. But there was one day in high school where my friends and I did.
