Toontown Rewritten brings back my first MMO


Somehow Disney lawyers haven't noticed
Jun 15
// Joe Parlock
Toontown Online was my very first MMO, back when I was a wee child. It was pretty rad at the time: teaming up with people all over the world was a novel idea at the time, and even though I never subscribed, I can still vivid...

Butoden who?
There is perhaps less urgency in the Hyper Dragon Ball Z fan fighter coming to fruition now that Arc System Works (Guilty Gear) is releasing a robust 2D Dragon Ball Z fighter. That does not mean I do not want to play both games, however. Especially because Hyper Dragon Ball Z is still looking excellent, as you can see above. That Gohan speaks to me on an emotional level.

Well, this is awkward. Back in June, Konami gave a group of Metal Gear fans its blessing to produce a free remake of the original MSX Metal Gear. The project attracted a lot of talent, including those who've worked on such ti...

The physical soundtrack and free release are still a go
Aug 18
// Chris Carter
Just recently we found out that the Mega Man Legends 3 8-bit demake was completed, and now we have a new launch trailer to see it in action. As a reminder, you can shell out for a physical soundtrack disc as well as a copy of the game, but it'll also drop for free on August 30. Be sure and pick it up as soon as possible on that date just in case something happens with Capcom!

I want both of them either way
A group of Dragon Ball Online fans, who happen to also be developers, are translating the game into English and re-releasing it as Dragon Ball Online: Revelations. Meanwhile, we've got more screenshots of Dragon Ball Xenoverse, a game which I still firmly believe to be an adaptation of Dragon Ball Online.

The old rule of thumb was that fan translations never get picked by the game's original developer or publisher, but Stiens;Gate and Ys: The Oath of Felghana proved differently. I hope that Retro Game Challenge 2 (known as Ga...

Okay, maybe I haven't played a Dragon Ball Z game since Budokai 2, but I think that claim would hold up, even if it's my affinity for 2D speaking. But seriously, this years-in-the-making, well animated, Mugen-based DBZ fan g...
