Don't Just Stand There, Bust-a-Move With Classics & Coffee

Don't Just Stand There, Bust-a-Move With Classics & Coffee

Our Super NES anniversary stream series continues with an endless cascade of earworm music and tiny, ball-blasting dinosaurs.

Love classic games? Love coffee? Or some other source of caffeine with which to begin your morning? Friend, do I have some news for you!

Beginning today, I've shifted my irregular retrogame streams from a floating afternoon time slot to a consistent morning slot. I can't promise I'll stream every single weekday, but I'll give it the ol' college try... and it'll always happen at 9:30 a.m. ET/6:30 a.m. PT. That's early, yeah, but the idea is that it's something people can tune in to while they're settling in to work/prepping for class/struggling to wake up. I'll be doing likewise, sipping on a warm mug of bean juice while I muddle through classic games both beloved and unfamiliar.

This morning's stream has already come and gone, but that's OK — that's what stream archives are for! If you miss the live versions due to, you know, commuting or not being awake yet, I'll be posting streams immediately to our YouTube channel for you to enjoy later. And you'll always have a clear picture of the week's Classics & Coffee schedule with our Monday stream announcement posts.

I'll be continuing my ongoing stream series projects (including, eventually, the Mega Man-a-thon) under the auspices of Classics & Coffee; this morning's stream was Taito's Bust-A-Move, which was the USgamer team's 23rd favorite Super NES game of all time. Friday morning, I'll be playing through Castlevania: Dracula X (our 22nd favorite game). Hope to see you online then! And if not, well, sleep tight, you night owl, you.
