Densha de Go Professional 2 Box

Revenge of the License: Densha de Go! Series

Here’s a new twist for this column. Instead of looking at a game that takes its inspiration from a comic, film, television show, cartoon, or book, today I’m going to look at a series which licenses its game play from the best source on Earth: real life. In this case, miles and miles of railroad […]

Retro Consoles Untapped Marketing Avenue for Modern Games

It is getting harder and harder for modern game publishers to get their games in the hands of players, er on their consoles/computers is more like it but you get the point.  To get current generation games into the psyche of players is not so easy anymore- traditional advertising has proven less and less viable […]

Rockbot Review, Fanmade Mega Man Game Rocks

Okay, it is pretty clear that Capcom are transitioning down with their new IPs and rebooting of classic titles.  That is bad news for everyone but Street Fighter fans, which apparently writes checks in its sleep.  Well, there is a dedicated group of fans that are not content with letting Capcom’s blue bomber sit idly […]

Anna Fuda Project: Eden, New Run and Gun from Collectorvision Coming to Next Gen Systems

Collectorvision Games have been steadily keeping their collective heads pointed forward over the years.  Even though the RETRO VGS is currently regrouping (Collectorvision were making the pack-in title), Collectorvision are continuing work on another 2D side scrolling action game, Anna Fuda Project: Eden.  Jean-Francois Dupuis, owner of Collectorvision Games, released some very basic information on […]


The 2nd Great Video Game Crash and how it could Be Stopped

The video game industry had a crash in 1983/1984 that nearly ended our favorite pastime for good.  During this period there were many gaming consoles available, lots of games and many developers that were popping up out of nowhere and just as quickly disappearing.  It was a horrific time for fans of gaming that lived […]

Lara Croft Go Comes to Android and iOS, Remembers Windows Phone Too

The Tomb Raider series is one that has been all over the place as far as the fans are concerned.  The first one took gaming by storm, the second was “alright” and the third is quite forgettable.  The series just goes up and down from there all the way up to current generation platforms.  Recently, […]


Mutant League Football, Sega Genesis Classic, Reborn as Mutant Football League for Playstation 4, Modern Platforms

This is a unique news item, one that is pretty interesting for me as I figured the original was to be the start of something pretty cool.  Sadly, we only ever saw one Mutant League Football game and one hockey title in this style before the series was pretty much dropped by Electronic Arts.  During […]


Legend of Zelda – Link’s Awakening Now Available in Spanish thanks to Fan Translation

Most people forget that North America as a whole does not speak English.  When you say North America most people think of the United States of America, that is fine but it is wrong.  That is like thinking Brazil when someone says “South America”.  It is a country in that region but it is not […]


Pac-Man 256 Review, the Classic Title is now an Endless Runner and It Rocks

Okay, messing with the classics can be a tough thing to do right.  Just look at what happened in the late 90’s with Battlezone by Activision.  What a mess that was.  There have been a few other attempts over the years to update classics such as Asteroids, Battlezone, Missile Command and more but those were […]

Domination Brings Risk Style Strategy to Android

Who doesn’t remember playing Risk with an older/younger sibling, or with friends, when they were younger?  Risk was THE game for me and my friends when we reached the 14+ age range, it is still one of the few board games that I cannot get enough of, especially against someone that can strategize and understands […]
