Bandit Gaming: Hard Drivin’ Finally Released on NES in Beta Form

Bandit Gaming: Block Out Beta Released on Nintendo Entertainment System

When gaming was still coming out of the ether and trying to figure out what it is really all about (this is after an initial failure in the mid 1980′s). Gaming was unique back then, we didn’t have billion dollar sellers, we had unique takes on genres that seems to be gone today as “me [...]

GBA Platforming Underdogs Six Pack

The premise for this article is that it could not be a huge movie success license, made by Nintendo (so no Mario/Wario/Kirby/Donkey Kong/Metroid) and it had to be a 2D side scroller that was pretty much ignored on the shelves.  The only title on this list that really pushes that limit is Disney’s Lilo and [...]

Conker’s Bad Fur Day Beta Released Online (Unofficially)

Conker’s Bad Fur Day was one of those titles that probably came out unexpectedly for a lot of fans even though it was released years after Nintendo had dropped most of their “family friendly” image in an effort to be competitive in the aging market.  A 3D collectathon with a heaping helping of bathroom humor [...]

Today in History: April 28th 1989 – Super Mario Bros 2 Hits the Nintendo Entertainment System

Nintendo was still new to the sequel rituals when they released Super Mario Bros 2 on the NES, and boy did they go away from the norm for what a sequel was supposed to be.  Being almost a complete departure from the original NES title, in Japan the title used for the US SMB2 was [...]

Taking place seven years after the original Castlevania, this installment takes a rather large departure from what fans knew from the first title.  Simon is on a pilgrimage to visit his family’s resting place and meets a lady that tells him that Dracula has placed a curse on the Belmont family (bummer).  Unlike the first [...]

Mega Man 4 available on 3DS eShop now

Capcom continues releasing the classic NES Mega Man titles today with Mega Man 4.  Originally released in 1992 for the Nintendo Entertainment System, this version of Mega Man introduces new bad guy, Dr. Cossack.  Personally, I never played this version in the 90s, and when I did I felt that the game was missing something.  [...]

Ducktales Remastered Announced by Capcom Coming to Major Consoles

Ducktales is a cartoon that I grew up watching as a kid, and was the main reason I wanted Disney Channel but my parents were apprehensive to adding to the monthly cable bill (I had to do chores and odd jobs to pay for it).  When Ducktales, and its sequel, hit the original Nintendo Entertainment [...]

Following up the success of the recent game collection apps article on Android devices, I thought it would be a good idea to listen the feedback from readers across the Internet and do a Nintendo centric version of the article.  Here I have collected several Apps off of iTunes that cater to a different Nintendo [...]
