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!

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 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.

Herc's Adventures is one of those games that began the swan song for an era of gaming. In terms of tone and design, anyways. Perhaps a tad melodramatic, but as the 90's moved forward and marketing geared more towards the 18-34 demographic, there were less charming and colorful games like Herc's Adventures and Blasto in favor of more cinematic and…Continue
