RETRO REBOOT - NFL Blitz 2001 (Nintendo 64)

The NFL Blitz window ended up being rather short-lived. That makes sense, as this style of arcade gaming was (stop me if you've read this on this editorial) becoming less commonplace by the end of the 90's, as Midway's reign on the western gaming world was loosening rapidly. I wasn't even that huge of a football fan when I was younger, but NFL Blitz…

When the…

New Patent From Microsoft Reveals An LCD Display Screen On The Controller

The modern Xbox controller has always been solid, seemingly following a "if it's not broke, don't fix it" moniker. Many were surprised that the launch of the Xbox Series X|S didn't come with a controller as progressive as the PS5 DualSense, instead opting to stick with a design and scheme that's close to the Xbox one Elite model (insert joke about…

RETRO REBOOT - Caveman Games (NES)

In the early 90's and late 80's, every now and then, there's a couple of games that, regardless of their quality, you have zero problem throwing into your NES and just messing around. Since games from this era were also pretty tongue-in-cheek, which left them with an endearing quality. Caveman Games is one that I kinda don't care for as a game, but…

Monster Hunter Rise Will Be Landing On All Console Platforms

Monster Hunter Worlds may have been far too massive a game to run on the Switch, so Nintendo fans got their hands on Monster Hunter Rise in 2021, and PC as well.

While here in the 21st century of the industry, there may be a potential future where physical gaming is becoming more a secondary option, there was a time early in video game's infancy where physical carts or game cards were merely an idea.
