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 […]

Ralph Baer, The Father of Video Games, Passes Away at 92 Years Old, Interview Reposted

Five years ago I had the fortune of getting in contact with Ralph Baer, affectionately known as the “Father of Video Games”.  I conducted an interview with him, which is available below.  This interview was originally made available on another site but they have seen fit to remove the content I made available, including the […]

Cruisin’ USA Powerslides Onto the Nintendo 64: Today in History- December 3rd 1996

Having lived through the build up to the launch, the launch and the gaming drought shortly thereafter of the Nintendo 64 has given me a rather unique point of view when looking back in these historical articles.  The build up for Cruisin’ USA was HUGE, it was to be THE game that got gamers to […]

Survive the Dead in House of the Dead 2 on Sega Dreamcast – Today in History – September 9th, 1999

Arcade ports are Sega’s forte, at least they used to be, and their Dreamcast console was no different. With ports of Hydro Thunder, Soul Calibur and Mortal Kombat 4 (Gold on DC). Launching platforms with arcade ports became a Sega mainstay with the Genesis console and was continued through on the 32X and Saturn consoles […]

Ending Friendships with a Smile with Super Mario Kart on Super Nintendo – Today in History – September 1st, 1992

If you are a retro gamer of any sort then you know at least a little bit about Super Mario Kart. Super Mario Kart was not the first racing game, just like Super Mario Bros was not the first side scrolling action game but Nintendo did it their way and created a new genre. Mario […]

Alien Crush Unleashes Extra Terrestrials into Pinball – Today in History – August 19th, 1989

The launch of the Turbo Grafx-16 was the first, and only, foray into the North American gaming market for NEC (for more information on this see our historical look back here). NEC were pulling out all of the stops, at least as many as they could with their libary of launch titles. To say NEC […]

Wii U Virtual Console…did Nintendo get it right?

So, as it turns out, Nintendo did announce the Virtual Console for the Wii U during their Nintendo Direct presentation today.  NES, SNES, and even GBA titles were discussed.  One key item the Wii U VC needed was off tv play on the Gamepad and, thankfully, Nintendo confirmed that this will be available.  Unfortunately, this […]

Got An iPad or iPhone and Love Nintendo?

Following up the success of the recent game collection apps article on Android devices, I thought it would be a good idea to listen the feedback from readers across the Internet and do a Nintendo centric version of the article.  Here I have collected several Apps off of iTunes that cater to a different Nintendo […]
