The Possible Realities Of A Nintendo 64 Classic

I feel like we’re partially responsible for this, willing it into an early existence, having talked about the possibility of a Nintendo 64 Classic on the latest podcast. If you haven’t heard, Nintendo filed a trademark for the Nintendo 64 controller image.   It seems more an inevitability than a “what if”, so I started […]

Apple iOS 11 Is Going To Kill Some Games

When Games and Junk first started, putting classic video games on the iPhone seemed absurd. The screen on the iPhone 4 seemed too small to be able to properly enjoy Secret of Mana, Chrono Trigger, and even the original Final Fantasy. I could only imagine playing these inferior ports turning people off them. All it really took to […]

Nintendo Discontinues The NES Classic

Nintendo has a fair amount of things going on for it right now. The world (us included) seems to be unable to stop talking about The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild more than a month after its release. Their newest console, the Switch, seems to be doing rather well as it continues to be […]

Radiant Historia Getting Another Shot At Life With A 3DS Remake

Last night, Atlus teased us with this image. I became rather excited at the prospect of a new Radiant Historia game. A remake on Vita? 3DS? Switch? And then the realities of the present day kicked in and I realized it was probably going to be a smartphone port. Soul effectively crushed. Thankfully, Atlus pulled through. Radiant […]

Game Diaries: Yakuza 0 – Brutal And Brutally Funny

Yakuza 0’s not something that I was initially planning on getting. Thanks to Playstation Plus, I’ve got a few of the previous games in my digital collection, but I haven’t really touched any of them. I tried Yakuza 3 when it was newer, but it didn’t vibe with me right away, so I sent it […]

Poochy & Yoshi’s Woolly World Promo Videos Are Adorable

One of my favorite titles of 2015, Yoshi’s Woolly World, was just ported to the 3DS. Relabaled Poochy & Yoshi’s Woolly World, it adds a mode that makes it easier for players to finish it by letting you use Poochy puppies as unlimited eggs and allows Yoshi to fly indefinitely. You can also get it bundled with […]

Game Diaries: Adventures In Alola – Bridging The Gap

If you haven’t been watching the show or, at the very least, heard about it, Ash lost in the Pokémon League. Again. His Greninja, a Water/Dark-type, lost to a Charizard. Yup, even with the type advantage, Ash still blew it. If you play through the demo of Sun and Moon, when you start out, you get a […]

Game Diaries: Adventures In Alola – Sizing Up Your Rival

The first thing that really struck me with Pokémon Sun wasn’t the setting. It wasn’t the improvements in the UI and other quality of life stuff. It wasn’t even the new Pokémon. No, the first thing I noticed came a short time into the game. For those of you that played Pokémon X or Y, you might remember a […]

Game Diaries: Adventures In Alola – Picking A Starter

Pokémon Sun and Moon brings a new generation of Pokémon, the seventh, to the world. When an entry to the series adds more Pokémon to the hundreds of others, we’re given a few new starters to choose at the beginning of our adventure. Some turn out more popular than others in the long run. My personal favorite starters are […]

Quake: 20 Years On

Quake was released 20 years ago today. I, and millions of others around the world owe a debt to id Software and Quake. The game that launched a million deathmatches, LAN parties and mods. Quake was to Doom what Super Mario 64 was to Super Mario World. It built on the ingenuity, creativity and charm […]
