RETRO REBOOT!! Ninja Gaiden (NES)

When conversations of notoriously difficult Nintendo games come up, one that's generally on the tip of the tongue is Tecmo's action slash-fest Ninja Gaiden. Whereas I find its sequels much more brutal (I have no idea how anyone is supposed to feasibly beat The Ancient Ship of Doom, it's nearly impossible), the first one still holds some merit and is…

RETRO REBOOT!! Double Dragon (NES)

The granddaddy of all arcade beat'em ups. If you want to talk about a game series that paved the way for a genre, this is definitely it. Now, as big a Double Dragon fan as I am, I would be remiss if I didn't say this series has aged like a cup of yogurt in front of a radiator when compared to succeeding brawlers. There's still a charm to revisiting…

Blizzcon 2019

The last year has been rough for Blizzard.

Leading into last year we got an announcement that Blizzard CEO and president Mike Morhaime was stepping down. Mike has been with Blizzard since 1991. J. Allen Brack was put in charge of Blizzard, but not as a CEO, just as president. A sign of the closing grip that Activision has over Blizzard. Mike's…

EA + Steam = Happy Gamers

Let's rewind to 2009. 

Steam held 70% of all digital distribution on PC. If you were a PC gamer, you had Steam installed. We accepted that, it was reliable, had a great section of games, and their sales made it very hard to not accept them. They were trusted among PC gamers. They were the market leader after all.

Everything was on there,…

WWE Games Gives Statement on 2K20's Glitches And Mishaps

Suffice to say, the latest venture in Take 2 Interactive's WWE series of annual wrestling games has garnered headlines, but for all the wrong reasons a video game should be trending.

RETRO REBOOT!! BUG! (Sega Saturn)
