Sine Mora Ex Nintendo Switch

Sine Mora Ex on Nintendo Switch versus Playstation 3

I am a huge fan of scrolling shooters. I suck at them but I like things that go boom in pretty explosions. Years ago, though, about 25 years or so, I was really good at these, never able to one man any single game but still able to beat man with the allotted lives. Years of playing Bejeweled clones and strategy games has let my scrolling shooter skills fade quite a bit. That doesn’t mean I can’t recognize a good one when they come along. Sine Mora is just that – a good scrolling shooter and it is coming to the Nintendo Switch.

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe Nintendo Switch

More Mario Kart 8 Deluxe Information and New Video

It is a mainstay for Nintendo when they launch a new console or handheld. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe just continues the kart racing, friendship destroying, fun we know and love. Here we have updated information on the Nintendo Switch game and even a new video after the jump.

Wonder Boy Dragons Trap

New Games Coming to Nintendo Switch eShop

The Nintendo Switch is burning up the sales charts lately, and Nintendo, along with key third parties, are working hard to keep new games coming. The games listed are not all of the games coming out for the platform – just the ones coming to the Switch eShop digital service.

Dragon Quest X Wii Cover

Square Enix Does Cool Thing for Nintendo Wii Owners, at Least Those That Own a Certain Game

Square Enix, a company that catches a lot of flak from gamers; when things get heated they are on par with Ubi Soft’s level of heat. I am not sure they are trying to turn that public image around with this announcement or not, but it is still cool. If you own Dragon Quest X on the Nintendo Wii then you are about to be out of luck if you plan on continued play with it. Soon, a new update will hit, and with that update, Dragon Quest X on the Nintendo Wii will no longer be playable. Square Enix have their fist ready to raise one finger, which one it is will probably surprise you.

Iron Commando Piko Interactive Super Nintendo

Classic Brawlers, Iron Commando and Legend, Get IndieGoGo Campaign

Anyone that has read my work, at least gaming stuff, for any length of time knows I am a huge fan of scrolling brawlers. Games like Streets of Rage, Final Fight, etc. Those are my “go to games”. I recently found out that Piko Interactive have launched a new IndieGoGo campaign for two of their titles, Legend and Iron Commando for the Super Nintendo and Super Famicom. If you are unfamiliar with these titles, they are brawlers and I am happy again.

The Unofficial SNES/Super Famicom: a Visual Compendium Kickstarter Could Reach £500,000

A new Kickstarter campaign was launched last week. That fact alone isn’t really big news in the retrogaming scene anymore, or that it is a Nintendo book, again, or that it is from Bitmap Books, again. The news is that The unofficial SNES/Super Famicom: a visual compendium Kickstarter campaign might, if it keeps its momentum going, break through the £500,000 mark. So far, the campaign has rocketed past the rather excessive £25,000 goal with 3,343 backers, and is, as of writing, sitting at £142,872. That’s a massive amount–572% of the original goal–especially considering that there are still 24 days to go.

Top 3 Stand-Alone GB Games Based On Classic Series (Top 3 Tuesday)

Sometimes one is capable of dealing with life’s shenanigans. Other times life starts punching below the belt. This is my excuse for failure to comment on the last couple of Top 3 Tuesday videos put out by MichaelBtheGameGenie. Enough is enough: it is time to write! This week, MichaelB proposed “Top 3 Game Boy Games That Had A Standalone Entry in a Classic Series”, a topic which I massively shortened for the title of this post. What this all comes down to is my 3 favorite games on the Game Boy that aren’t ports of existing titles but stand-alone games in their own right. This disqualifies titles like Mortal Kombat II, because it’s just a scaled-down version of the arcade game, and Alleyway because that’s its own IP, but allows games like Kid Icarus: Of Mazes and Monsters and Wizards & Warriors X, which are their own installments from a pre-existing franchise. Time to dig out the ol’ brick and see what’s worth playing and fits the criteria. I have a few ideas, starting with…

Screenshot Released Shows Early Zelda Build in 3D First Person

It is no secret that the Legend of Zelda was originally intended to be a first-person dungeon romp. That is if you are a hardcore Zelda fan. The late Nintendo President, Satoru Iwata, brought this up at least once in his “Iwata Asks” series. For the rest of us, apparently, the original Legend of Zelda was intended to be a first person dungeon romp similar to Might and Magic and the Wizardry series. What is interesting is that a screen shot was recently released that shows off what the original Legend of Zelda might have looked like.

Hulk Hogan Streets of Rage 2

Hulk Hogan Unofficially Joins Streets of Rage 2 Cast

Brawlers and wrestling games have more in common than most people realize. There is a fairly limited set of moves – no brawler I know of is as deep with attacks or strategy as a one on one fighting game. You can move up and down the screen rather than be stuck to one line of fighting. That is why it seems to be a match made in heaven that someone has hacked Hulk Hogan into Streets of Rage 2.

Vega Plus

ZX Spectrum Vega+ Console Spotted in the Wild

The rarely-seen but often talked (or complained) about Sinclair ZX Spectrum Vega+ was spotted in the wild at the weekend by a Retro Gaming Magazine contributor.

The controversial console, which has been subject to extended production delays and much legal wrangling since company directors fell out in a major split last year was seen – and handled – by this reporter at an unrelated event in Nottingham, England on Saturday.
