Top 3 Fighting Games of the 16-bit Era (Top 3 Tuesday)

If you don’t associate the 16-bit era with fighting games, you’re either an amnesiac or throwing off the curve for this site’s age demographic.

Star Wars arcade game title screen

Star Wars – from Movie to Arcade to Atari ST

Today being May the 4th (aka Star Wars Day), I thought I’d mark the occasion by looking back at one of the first Star Wars video games which brought simulated science fiction movie action down off the silver screen and into arcades and homes.

The Grumpy Git: Has the Gaming Industry Got Any Ideas Left?

Okay people, if you don’t know who I am, I’m the Grumpy Git, it is Monday, and I have decided it is time to look at the world from a more jaded angle. Feel free to disagree with me vehemently in the comments. Okay, on to today’s topic… “Has the gaming industry got any ideas […]

Top 3 “Desert Island” Games (Top 3 Tuesday)

I have to say, when I saw MichaelB’s Top 3 Tuesday topic this week, I was confused. This appeared to be the one that broke him. I mean, really, top three games featuring desert islands?

The Unofficial SNES/Super Famicom: a Visual Compendium Kickstarter Could Reach £500,000

A new Kickstarter campaign was launched last week. That fact alone isn’t really big news in the retrogaming scene anymore, or that it is a Nintendo book, again, or that it is from Bitmap Books, again.

Top 3 Stand-Alone GB Games Based On Classic Series (Top 3 Tuesday)

Sometimes one is capable of dealing with life’s shenanigans. Other times life starts punching below the belt. This is my excuse for failure to comment on the last couple of Top 3 Tuesday videos put out by MichaelBtheGameGenie. Enough is enough: it is time to write! This week, MichaelB proposed “Top 3 Game Boy Games […]

Vega Plus

ZX Spectrum Vega+ Console Spotted in the Wild

The rarely-seen but often talked (or complained) about Sinclair ZX Spectrum Vega+ was spotted in the wild at the weekend by a Retro Gaming Magazine contributor. The controversial console, which has been subject to extended production delays and much legal wrangling since company directors fell out in a major split last year was seen – […]

Unholy Night SNES Fighting

Unholy Knight Now Available to Pre-Order for the Super Nintendo

Back in December 2016, we covered the announcement of a new game being developed for the Super Nintendo called Unholy Knight, and in February 2017, we also reported on the subsequent Kickstarter campaign for the game. Unfortunately, the campaign, which ended on March 17, wasn’t as successful as we had all hoped for, raising $23,072 […]

With the NES Classic Mini–also known as Nintendo Classic Edition, depending on where it’s sold–Nintendo seem to have struck nostalgic cords of many retrogamers. It has proved so popular that Retrogamers have been clambering over themselves to get hold of the much publicized and popular mini Nintendo 8-bit console. Could the release of a Sega […]
