Retro Games are Making a Comeback

No matter how many unique weapons, complex objectives, intricate storylines, or virtual acres of free-roaming space are available in these new-fangled state-of-the-art console epics, sometimes you just need to take it back to the simplicity of old-school games.

Virtual Currencies and How They Have Evolved

Money makes the world go round–not just in real-life, but in gaming universes as well. Gaming currencies can often go completely unnoticed, or they are simply something that players take for granted. It isn’t often central to the main storyline, but gaming money often sets the rules for what you can and can’t do within […]

Blaster Master Making Return on Modern Hardware

Back in the 8-Bit days of gaming there were a few timeless franchises.  Super Mario Bros, Castlevania, Contra, Gradius (see a pattern yet?) and of course Blaster Master.  While we can forget Konami updating anything they own (they own the entire Hudson Soft library including TG-16 stuff) we can count on the people behind one […]

Pettson’s Inventions 3 Brings Back The Incredible Machine Style Gaming

Anyone that has been gaming since the early 90’s will probably remember a game called The Incredible Machine.  This was an electronic interpretation of Rube Goldberg style puzzles.  For those that don’t know, the idea is to use dissimilar items together in an effort to solve problems that are off the wall and somewhat bizarre.  […]

Super Mario Land 2 – Six Golden Coins Pushes Nintendo Game Boy – Today in Retro Gaming – November 2nd, 1992

Nintendo have a way of delivering more out of their hardware than what is first thought possible.  Take the original, salad green screen, Game Boy hand held for instance.  While Tetris was pretty good looking and true to other versions (it better be, it was just blocks), Super Mario Land was quite different versus the […]

Retro Games Revived by New Technology – Using the Present to Step Back in Time

We love a gaming classic. Yes, Metal Gear Solid V is a visually stunning tactical feast and Diablo III is a soul lifting RPG, but hold these up to old school offerings like Super Mario, Sonic and even Space Invaders and the latter group wins every time.

Re-Volt 3 Enters Pre-Registration on Google Play

The Re-Volt series is a well-remembered franchise from the bygone days of the 32 and 64-Bit eras.  Who doesn’t have fond memories of racing the little RC Cars around the tracks full of oversized objects like cars, curbs and safety cones?  Now, WeGo Interactive are bringing the third installment of Re-Volt to Google Play gamers […]

The Nintendo Switch, a Console for Busy Adults

By now we all know about the Nintendo Switch. Since its reveal, we have seen fans arguing both for and against its design. We have seen gamers worry about the potential lack of third party support. We have seen debates rage about the potential specs and whether they are good enough to appease gamers. The […]

Link’s Awakening Re-Imagined Using Ocarina of Time on Nintendo 64

When we hear about a cool mod or hack it is more often than not simply a character swap or something.  Sega’s Streets of Rage 2 is a popular subject of fan mods (we have covered more than a few here).  What about the other side of hacks and mods though, the side where the […]
