Today in History: January 23rd, 1990 – Super Mario Bros Conquers the World on the NES

What can really be said about Super Mario Bros 3 for the Nintendo Entertainment System that hasn’t been said already?  This was Nintendo’s unofficial swan song of Mario games for the NES that really showed that the system still had “oomph” when taking on more powerful systems such as the Sega Genesis and NEC Turbo […]

Fire Emblem Awakening Coming to Nintendo 3DS in February

The Fire Emblem series has been around since the original Nintendo Entertainment System days, at least in Japan.  North American gamers didn’t, officially, get any of the titles till the launch of the Game Boy Advance over 14 years after the series started.  That is all water under the bridge, as they say, because Nintendo […]
