Out of all of the games that we see receive fan homages regularly one genre seems to be forgotten just as often.  That is the Arkanoid style brick breaker game, also known as Breakout.  Well, the developers behind Retroid for the Nintendo Game Boy certainly remember those two classics.  Sure, the Game Boy already received […]

Fan Mod Adds Double Dragon II Bosses Everywhere

double_dragon_ii_2_boss_mode_acclaim_romhacking

The original Double Dragon II was not all that easy to beat.  To add to the complications in beating this brawler, you did not see the whole game if you played on an easier difficulty.  This was cool for the hardcore players but also kind of a rip off to those that were not quite […]

Revenge of the License: Nobunaga’s Ambition (NES)

When other developers were looking at ways to maximize profits by way of comic books or television shows, Koei said, “Holy cow, it’s expensive to buy the rights to something current. Screw that! Japanese history is ripe for plunder and we don’t have to pay anybody a single yen to use their likeness because they’ve […]

Sega is a company that fans REALLY want to love and support but that love and support is more often than not met with lackluster Sonic the Hedgehog games.  This bothers a lot of the gaming populace that remember Sega of old. The Sega that released Comix Zone, Streets of Rage 1, 2 and 3 […]

When we first heard about the Super Nintendo Entertainment System in the pages of Electronic Gaming Monthly every gamer had different visions of what it meant.  For me, I was thinking along the lines that many fans were- updated classics in 16-Bit glory.  Legend of Zelda, Super Mario, NES Play Action Football, etc.  While Nintendo […]

Back in the day scrolling shooters were a dime a dozen.  To stand out from the crowd you had to have something unique in your shooter.  Just being a side or horizontal scroll shooter was not enough anymore.  Konami was, at this time, kicking butt with their other games- Castlevania IV, Contra III etc.  They […]

xenosaga_import_nintendo_ds

Xenogears is my favorite game of all-time, and I was also a huge fan of the spiritual successor on the PS2, Xenosaga. So when I heard that Monolith Soft was developing a DS port of the first two games, I was pretty excited. That enthusiasm was also mixed with a bit of confusion, because I […]

Everybody’s favorite Bowser basher, Goomba grinder, Koopa killer and Mushroom masticator blew away 8-bit Japanese gamers on this day in 1985. While Nintendo’s mascot would take another month to arrive on the North American continent, Super Mario Bros. wasted no time turning the video game world on its ear. No other game has ever made […]
