– The controls don’t always feel tight. – The jumping physics seem odd, even in the SNES era. Can change directions but still feels stiff. – No battery, game uses a password system. 4×4 grid, composed of holy water, axes, hearts and empty spaces. I’m going to store the codes as I go, here’s one:… Continue reading Super Castlevania IV Review
I love video game magazines. I also love retro games. Putting the two together and creating a retro gaming magazine might be the best thing, ever. Unfortunately it’s 2013 which means there aren’t a ton of video game magazines left, let alone ones focused on the retro gaming scene. In fact, as far as I… Continue reading RETRO Game Magazine
To promote their newly released DuckTales Remastered, Capcom sent out 150 gold DuckTales NES cartridges to the press. It’s the same game with a gold painted cartridge and updated label. While it may not seem like much, this pisses me off because a) they seem like great collectors items, b) they actually work, c) they… Continue reading Capcom Makes 150 Gold DuckTales NES Cartridges

I’m a huge fan of the original Secret of Mana, it’s a terrific action RPG that was released by Square in 1993.

I think I also fixed the very much hacked RSS feed. I don’t understand how it is that WordPress always gets hacked. The plugins? I don’t know, or… Continue reading I Think the Site is No Longer Hacked
Epic Astro Story is an amazing combination of everything I love: city builder, space and RPG. You’re in charge of a space colony on an alien planet. You recruit people named after Star Trek characters like Gordi Forge, Wes Smasher, Bones McGee, James Turk and Pavlov Hekov. You send them on away missions. You level… Continue reading Epic Astro Story is Very Awesome
I will be buying this game, because I’ve always imagined myself as a Jean-Luc Picard-level star ship commander.

1UP is doing a series about why the 90’s were amazing (and sometimes not) for video games. I fully support this. I had no idea 1998 was so amazing. Also, don’t miss the X-treme ads. Only the 90’s could give us an awesome game starring Aerosmith and another starring Michael Jackson.
