Top 3 Import Games (Top 3 Tuesday)

Once more into the trenches, fellow Retromaniacs! This week, the studlier, more ruggedly handsome, infinitely cooler Michael (aka MichaelBtheGameGenie) raised a new topic which requires our input. Today’s video, which you should absolutely go and watch before you get any further into this column, requests his legions to choose and explain their Top 3 Import […]

The Italian Job Retrospective

When I got my hands on an ultra-cheap second-hand PlayStation One a few years ago, one of the first games I tried out was The Italian Job. I’m not a huge fan of the film (it certainly has its moments, but overall it didn’t think it was that great), but it seemed that this conversion […]

Hot Potato! Retrospective

Hot Potato! for the Game Boy Advance is a mad little action puzzle game that should please almost any gamer–for a while at least. The premise is simple enough. You have a tray or something (I bought the game for £3 second-hand and had no manual with it) of hot potatoes in two rows of three. […]

Versus Mode: Arch Rivals Vs. Basketbrawl

We all have that one friend. The friend who has a Sega instead of a Nintendo or a Colecovision instead of an Atari. This friend tends to lean towards the obscure and likes to talk about “alternative” versions of mainstream titles. Deciding on which game to play with this friend can be a total pain […]

Top 3 SHMUPS (Top 3 Tuesday)

SHMUPS: they’re neither candy nor some weird Asian bird flu derivative! ‘SHMUP’ is Internet shorthand for “shoot ’em up”, a genre of game where you pilot a person or craft through a series of auto-scrolling stages destroying everything in sight to earn power-ups so you can destroy everything in sight even faster. In other words, […]

The World of Micro Machines

Well, when I was a kid many moons ago, Micro Machines were introduced to the world. They were produced by Galoob (now part of Hasbro) and were tiny die cast model cars. I knew people who had them and there were many of them. All great choking hazard sized auto mobiles of varying types and […]

Harvest Moon 64 Returns on Wii U Virtual Console

Fans of Harvest Moon 64 have plenty of reason to rejoice this week! At least the European fans do, as it has been announced that the Wii U Virtual Console will finally receive Harvest Moon 64. After years of fans clamoring for Nintendo to release the game to no avail, it appears that the company […]

Strange Games From the East: Homeland

Did you ever play Phantasy Star Online series on the GameCube? If you did, then you’ll perhaps be aware of their infamy as the only GameCube titles to use the broadband capabilities of the console. But what if I told you that this is not true? That a different title outside the PSO series exists, […]

Strange Games from the East: Mobile Suit Gundam: The Ace Pilot

Few series in the world have been as long lived as Mobile Suit Gundam. The epic space opera between the Earth Federation Forces and The Principality of Zeon. Theirs is a battle that will last an eternity, and is one that few anime fans haven’t at least heard in passing. Mobile Suit Gundam: The Ace Pilot was released […]

Will Digital Downloads Make Traditional Gaming a Virtual Relic?

In 2015, The New York Times declared that the gaming industry had reached a “turning point” after downloads finally outstripped physical sales. Citing falling earning by retailers such as GameStop in the lead-up to Christmas 2015 and developers like Electronic Arts (EA) reporting 20% of its new games are now downloaded, it was easy to […]
