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 […]

Today in History: April 27th 1990 – Castlevania II: Simon’s Quest on the Nintendo Entertainment System

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 […]

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 […]

Prototypes of games that never got released are cool and fun to collect- not many people have them or even know about them and sometimes it is quite cool to collect these titles that were never circulated to the general public.  Today, we have Faceball for the Virtual Boy, yes the title that was on […]

Today in History: January 3rd, 2001 – Project S-11 Blasts Aliens on the Game Boy Color

Overhead shooter games were once the great genre of gaming, no system lived without at least a handful of really good shooters having been released for it. The Game Boy Color is no different, even above the curve in may respects. Take Project S-11 which was released today in 2001, a time when gaming was […]

Snake in Real Life (Video)

Every once in awhile you come across something really cool on Youtube or other sites in general and just have to share it.  That is what I thought about this video, it is basically a bunch of friends that got together and recreated the classic mobile game, Snake, in real life (hence the name) using […]
