Nintendo Finally Acquiesce to Demands

It seems that Nintendo have finally realised there may be profit in the Nintendo Classic Mini series. Many remember the supply and demand fiasco of the original and are anticipating such with the Super Nintendo Classic Mini, but it seems that it has come time for Nintendo to silence its critics.

9.9.99 Marks the Day the Sega Dreamcast Was Launched in North America

Hoping to rebound from the disappointing sales of the Sega Saturn, the Sega Dreamcast was launched today back in 1999. It has been said the Dreamcast was ahead of its time when it was released. Back in the ’90s, polygons were huge and blocky and while it ushered in the next generation of gaming, it left a lot to be desired in the looks department. With the introduction of the Dreamcast, Sega transformed gameplay graphics with beautifully realistic detail and super fast frame rates. Two of the best examples of the Dreamcast’s graphical power are Crazy Taxi and Soul Calibur.

Resident Evil 16-bit in Development for the Sega MegaDrive/Genesis

Resident Evil, the game that defined the survival horror genre on the Sony PlayStation, is seeking to expand its legacy back to the 16-bit era. The website has released a demo of Resident Evil 16-bit for the Sega Mega Drive / Genesis. No storyline details are given, but based on screenshots and the demo, it appears that Claire Redfield will play a significant role in the game.

Battletoads NES

Battletoads Receives Four Player Co-op Hack

Battletoads will probably go down in history as one of the toughest games ever released. I mean, released in the sense that it was a commercial game, not some hacker trying to be a jerk. The classic Rare game has recently seen a four-player co-op hack released by fans. There are some limitations here but for the most part, this is what the box says – a four-player co-op mode.

Zombies Ate My Neighbors the Sequel

Zombies Ate My Neighbors: The Sequel Released by Fans, Brings 54 New Levels to Classic Adventure

Zombies Ate My Neighbors is a classic arcade adventure that sadly never saw a true sequel. Fans have held this title close to their hearts for years, and for good reason. Campy horror tropes were paraded around in this game like it was a D-list horror film. If it ever appeared in a horror movie, it was in Zombies Ate My Neighbors, or a facsimile making fun of it did (such as the 50-foot-tall baby). Now some enterprising fans have put together a sequel of their own for this game. If companies won’t do it, fans will, as is the case with Zombies Ate My Neighbors: The Sequel.

Special Anniversary Street Fighter II SNES Package Revealed

With Nintendo making the most of videogaming nostalgia with its NES and SNES Classic Edition console re-releases, Capcom have now jumped on the same bandwagon and teamed up with iam8bit to release a special package. To celebrate the 30th anniversary of the Street Fighter series, Capcom have had released a special physical re-release of Street Fighter II for the Super Nintendo. However, barely hours after being available to pre-order, the limited was promptly sold out…

Thimbleweek Park

Thimbleweed Park Coming to Android

Point and click adventure fans already know the name Thimbleweed Park quite well. If you don’t, then just how big a fan of the genre are you? For those that are reading this and are not fortunate enough to know that name, Thimbleweed Park is a point and click adventure throwback to the good old days of playing games on a computer.  Everything is pixelated and not at all super detailed, just like the developers (Ron Gilbert and Gary Winnick) happened to find the game in one of their desk drawers and released it. This duo are responsible for some of the classics of this genre – Maniac Mansion and Secret of Monkey Island, to name a couple (interview available here). Now, their recent classic is coming to Android. At some point.

SNES Gaming on the Cheap

The Super Nintendo has a huge catalog that includes over 700 titles. Most of them beginning with the word ‘super’. To commemorate the anniversary of the system’s release, here is a list of SNES games that can be played on the cheap.

SNES Classic Edition Available to Pre-Order… and Promptly Sells Out

Following the hype and sell out of the NES Classic, it was no surprise that Ninento would follow-up on that success with a run of SNES Classic Editon. News of the mini 16-bit Nintendo wonder was filtering through the past few months, and it was finally made available to pre-order in the United States… and promptly sold out with ‘Out of Stock’ signs placed across the website stores as fast as they were put up.

Hidden Jewel of the East: TurboGrafx-16 PC Engine Turns 28!

The year 1989 is a historical time in gaming history. After all, it is the year when Sega released the Sega Genesis, Nintendo came out with the Game Boy and Mother (Earthbound Zero), Mattel spawned the Power Glove (it’s so bad) and Mega Man 2 was brought over to the United States. However, there is one hero whose legend goes untold outside of the inner retro gamer circles. A console whose release was perhaps ahead of its time… the TurboGrafx-16.
