Super Mario Brothers never made it to the Commodore 64, though Hudson Soft did license the series for IBM PC computers.  That might be why Nintendo stopped allowing their games onto other platforms, till the CD-i debacle with Zelda and Mario.  That has not stopped other publishers from doing games that are quite similar to […]

Jade Empire Takes Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic Styling to Ancient China – Today in History – April 12th, 2005

When Jade Empire was announced for the original Xbox console it was one of the few exclusives that was truly interesting that wasn’t a First Person Shooter (FPS).   This was a chance for fans of Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic to experience something similar, but not a rip-off, but new and intriguing.  Microsoft […]

What if The Walking Dead Had an 8-Bit Game?

The Walking Dead has, no doubt, been a huge success for A&E, a surprise series considering the content this cable network usually releases.  Zombies were here to stay and the amount of support that A&E put behind The Walking Dead was obvious.  From the first episode that, for many viewers, went too far to the […]

Kunoi Mixes Running Games with Retrogaming Classic Elements Slashing Through Kickstarter

Endless running games are quite the “thing” in the mobile world.  For the most part, they have not really taken off on computers, where the first person shooter (FPS) is king.  Kunoi isn’t looking to attempt to change that, though there are some running game elements here they are not front and center.  No, front […]
