The Switch is getting a new model... well sorta. While it's not the rumored "pro" model thats been rumored, it is an upgrade to the current models. The biggest upgrade is the battery life.

Up until the announcement of Pokemon Sword and Shield, the mainline series was never featured on Nintendo's major home consoles. Instead, the N64 and Gamecube saw many attempts at making experimental ventures. Perhaps the most popular of these being Pokemon Battle Stadium. I never had a chance to play it, heard it was good. Instead I gravitated…Continue

One of the big rumors for E3 was Nintendo was going to announce a new Switch model. That didn't happen.
However, they did end up announcing a new Switch Model... in the middle of July.
The Nintendo Switch Lite.
This leaner version of the Nintendo Switch is focused more on portability then anything else. Sporting a sleeker design…Continue

Cuphead is going to Netflix in the form of the Cuphead Show!
And why wouldn’t it? In fact, I would think they’d kill two birds if game production coincided with the show. And imagine the in-game events that they could have with a show running alongside the game.
Netflix could go a step…Continue

When the conversation of the greatest video game of all time comes up, certainly it's subjective and there's no general consensus on formulating a definitive answer. And I try to not sound like a product of my time (says the guy that writes a column that exclusively talks about retro games), but I feel the world's greatest video games on the planet…Continue

Nintendo has had a history of censoring their games. From turning blood to sweat in the original Mortal Kombat to removing religious symbols from The Legend of Zelda. Nintendo went a little crazy with their censorship rules.…

You want a hot take? I still think that despite this game's flaws, it's still one of the most entertaining TMNT games out there. Like Karate Champ, the original Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles was one of those NES carts almost every kid had and every kid played. The difference being is that while Karate Champ was a deliciously bad title that was fun to…Continue

The term knock-off generally carries negative connotations and is met with eye rolling reactions. Throughout the early 90's, the golden period of fighting games brought along its many copycats. I fathom to think about the literal dozens of that one guy who has to own that ONE game who rushed out to buy an Atari Jaguar just to say he owns and plays…Continue

At first I was excited. A new Dr. Mario! One of the best Tetris clones ever made is coming to mobile!
Then I realized that this is not Dr. Mario. Not the one I know and love.…

I'm on record for Listing Zelda II as being in one of my top five favorite games in the franchise. The first one was memorable as hell. You're an elf kid, you got no true destination. Just go into a cave and old dude gives you some equipment. From there, you set out on an adventure that you can almost literally carve your own way as you look for…Continue

The idea that Battle Royale genre games need to in first person are in the rear view mirror. We know this now because of Nintendo's Tetris 99, which is awesome by the way and free on the Nintendo Switch, go try it. Anyway...
From reading the headline I know what you are thinking, "really, do we need another Royale game?" I say yes and this unofficial Mario Royale game is exactly what we need.…Continue

Mini console mania continues to roll forward. Over the last three years, an interest in plug and play retro consoles has seen the demand for the NES Classic supercede its expectations that production couldn't be met. Nintendo followed up with the much acclaimed SNES Classic in 2017. Sony jumped on the bandwagon and took a shot at their own retro…Continue

Nintendo never does E3. They always do a direct, and the last few E3 Directs have been really good with setting the company, and the fans up, for what to expect in the coming year and beyond. This one was no exception.
Lets get started. Before we get into the games and release dates, I want to get Super Smash Bros Ultimate out of the…Continue

It had been widely speculated around last year if CD Projekt RED had any interest in bringing any titles to the Nintendo Switch. On June 5th, Geralt voice actor Doug Cockle intensified those rumors by responding to a tweet that featured a doctored image of The Witcher III as it may appear as a Switch copy.…Continue
It's a discussion I intend to save for another day, but when I define retro, there's some cornerstones that were very indicative of the time. Light gun games are one of them. And Virtua Cop was one of the more entertaining ones and I spent literal pounds of quarters. Sega's AM2 team defined an era for me as a video game fan in my early teens, and the…Continue
