Square Enix continue their porting of classic games from their back catalog of games.  One of the most recent ports is Romancing SaGa 2 for Android and iPhone.  The interesting thing about this port is that this is the first time it is available LEGALLY in English.  Sure, there are illegal reproductions of fan translations […]

Capcom’s Monster Hunter on Life Support

I’ve started noticing a trend in certain video games recently. Developers appear to believe that if you release a multiplayer online game they will maintain an extremely high player base if they release tiny bits of DLC throughout the following months of release. While this can be a noble goal in the case of certain […]

The Addiction of Monster Hunter

Monster Hunter, described as a game where you kill beasts that rival mountains and make clothing out of them, is great. It’s loosely based on an old Norse belief from the Berserks, as they believed that wearing the pelt of a bear granted them the power of Odin. Monster Hunter also hints toward a cannibalistic […]

5 Mortal Kombat Ports You Won’t Care to Play

Mortal Kombat.  You either love it or wonder what all of the fuss is about.  There were a couple of eye catching differences when it hit arcades.  First, the graphics, these were not hand drawn cartoon characters like Street Fighter II.  Second, you could literally, positively, END your opponent after winning the fight.  The fact […]

5 Games that are Too Much Game for the Hardware

Gaming has always been about pushing the boundaries of the hardware.  Whether it was 3D on the Sega Saturn or too many sprites on screen at one time in Gradius III on the Super Nintendo, developers have consistently pushed the envelope.  Sometimes these are awesome games such as Star Fox on SNES but other times they […]

Piko Interactive’s Broken Circle on Steam Greenlight

When you think of new games for old platforms you may think of hacks or illegal reproductions of rarer titles.  Piko Interactive do not partake in either of those, rather they purchase the rights to the games, fix them and in many cases, finish them.  After all of that, Piko releases the game to the […]

Review- Huey Android GPD XD

2D side scrolling action platforming games.  I miss them.  Actually, I miss the time that they ruled the roost so to speak.  From Super Mario to Aero the Acro-Bat.  I played most of them.  I say most because there was a time there were too many coming out to purchase in due time.  This may […]

We Took Super Mario Bros on the Go with Super Mario Bros Deluxe – Today in History – May 10th, 1999

When you think “killer game” you think of something iconic and classic.  Nintendo knew this when they launched the original Game Boy in the late 80’s.  They launched with Tetris packed in.  Smart move.  They updated the Game Boy over the years, most notably with color when they launched the, imaginatively named, Game Boy Color.  […]

Super Joe is the Lone Arcade Commando – Today in History – May 8th, 1985

Capcom used to make these awesome arcade games.  From Final Fight to Street Fighter II, Capcom were kings of the arcade for years.  One early title that holds a lot of nostalgia power with us old timers is Commando.  While war is not something to make light of, it is usually the best and most […]
