A remake of the 1986 original that launched the Metroid series, it’s considered a classic and a favorite among fans, and now those who haven’t played it can discover why. There […]

Nothing But Brutal Shootouts In This Week’s Nintendo Download

by Peter Paltridgeon January 7, 2016
This week in the Nintendo Download, it’s nothing but shooters, but not the kind modern gamers might think of. These are all NES Zapper games, reconfigured to support Wii Remotes. Hogan’s Alley and Wild Gunman are finally playable without the need of an old tube television (the Zapper doesn’t work with HDTVs), and The Adventures […]

Now Turtles Are Playing With Power — Portal Power

by Peter Paltridgeon January 7, 2016
If there’s anything both my generation and the current crop of children can agree on, it’s that there are few things more satisfying in life than taking control of a gang of giant bro turtles with karate skills and using them to throw around evil ninjas.

The Oculus Rift Will Cost $600, And That’s Just The Beginning

by Peter Paltridgeon January 6, 2016
Oculus VR announced the release date for their buzzworthy VR headset, the Oculus Rift, this morning: March 28.

Pocket Mortys Coming From Adult Swim Games

by Peter Paltridgeon January 5, 2016
You could create a pretty hilarious Pokemon parody using Rick & Morty characters. Morty could be the nervous protagonist booted out of his house at 10 years old and shoved into a world of monsters he was expected to conquer, while Rick could pose as a passive Professor Oak, sort of watching over him while […]

Let It Snow(board) In This Week’s Nintendo Download

by Peter Paltridgeon December 31, 2015
It’s another slow week in the Nintendo Download, with the only notable release being the N64’s 1080 Snowboarding. In addition, the majority of the games on sale are incredibly obscure. And then there’s something called “Molly Maggot.” Not an exciting way to close out 2015. It’s worth noting Europe got Super Mario RPG last week. […]
