Nintendo Could Not Be Selling Downloaded ROM

A recent article by Eurogamer.net has been making the rounds lately. The article tells the story of how Nintendo potentially downloaded a ROM from the web and used it for the Super Mario Bros. game on the Wii Virtual Console. But while this is a possibility, Nintendo could possibly have done this, it’s rather unlikely. […]

Destroy Your Friendships with Dokapon Kingdom

Death, betrayal, backstabbing, and the destruction of every relationship you’ve ever held dear, that is Dokapon Kingdom. It is the bastard child of Monopoly and Dragon Quest developed by Sting Entertainment. A mixture of an RPG and a board game, in Dokapon Kingdom your goal is simple: become ludicrously rich while sacrificing all of your […]

Dynamite Headdy Proves Using Your Head Works – Today in Retro Gaming – August 4th, 1994

Sega had a lot of work ahead of them when they were able to take the lead in the 16-Bit race.  Nintendo was coming with the Super Nintendo and it was guaranteed to be a sales success and Sega knew it.  While Sega fumbled quite a bit early on, they were able to turn things […]

Cave Story Sega Genesis

Cave Story Coming to Sega Genesis Work in Progress, Playable Demo Available

Cave Story.  A game that has made the rounds quite a bit on modern platforms (my first exposure was on the Sony Playstation Portable).  Now, we can start ticking off classic, retro, consoles as this 2D action game is coming to the Sega Genesis.  If you don’t know what Cave Story is about then you […]

Baseball Slides Home on Nintendo Wii’s Virtual Console (NES) – Today in History – January 1st, 2007

What’s one of the first things that any hot new console on the market needs? Sports games! Given the worldwide popularity of baseball  (at least in North American and Japan) it was a no-brainer that Nintendo would want to capitalize on the sport for the NES. While I’m not a huge fan of watching baseball […]

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 […]

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 […]

Super Mario Bros 2 Hits the Nintendo Entertainment System- Today in History: April 28th 1989

Nintendo was still new to the sequel rituals when they released Super Mario Bros 2 on the NES, and boy did they go away from the norm for what a sequel was supposed to be.  Being almost a complete departure from the original NES title, in Japan the title used for the US SMB2 was […]

Super Mario Bros Conquers the World on the NES: Today in History- January 23rd, 1990

What can really be said about Super Mario Bros 3 for the Nintendo Entertainment System that hasn’t been said already?  This was Nintendo’s unofficial swan song of Mario games for the NES that really showed that the system still had “oomph” when taking on more powerful systems such as the Sega Genesis and NEC Turbo […]
