Retro flavored Insanity's Blade looks pretty badass

Last we heard, Insanity's Blade will be seeing a Wii U release as well as its original PC plan, and progress seems to be coming along nicely if this new trailer is anything to go by. It's only about a minute or so of fo...

Pier Solar HD delayed until June

With Pier Solar HD, what's old is new and what's new is old again. Unfortunately, we've got to wait quite a bit longer before we can actually give it a try now. The Sega Genesis-styled RPG care of Watermelon has been delayed ...

Retro Fury is more retro than advertised

Redshirt Films have taken the nostalgia train to retroville with this homage to '80s senseless action flicks. The plot is minimal, the dialogue sparse, but the action is actually pretty decent, with every gun coming from the...

Click your heels together and wish for SNES or GBA Remixes

When Nintendo feels like we get too close, it puts us right down. It's not the lover man that we want it to be, at least when it comes to fulfilling what can sometimes seem like lofty requests. For instance, remixes featuring...

Review: NES Remix 2 photo
Review: NES Remix 2
by Chris Carter

NES Remix was able to scratch an itch for many retro enthusiasts out there, but it lacked a certain spark that made it a must-buy for the average gamer. It would be hard to really consider half of the selections "classic," and it lacked any real extras beyond a hit-or-miss array of remixed stages.

But the second time is a charm in this case, because with heavy-hitting newcomers like Kirby's Adventure, Punch Out!!, and Metroid on top of returning franchises like Mario and Zelda, NES Remix 2 really knocks it out of the park in terms of its selection.

High Strangeness lets you shift between 8-bit and 16-bit

Longtime Destructoid community member AgentMOO's High Strangeness was back at PAX this year with a nearly done build. With the help of indie publisher Midnight City, High Strangeness is coming out late this year on PC and consoles. Holmes and Ben "AgentMOO" Shostak talked about the "12- bit" adventure and enemies that get more nefarious and capable as you do when you switch to the 16-bit world.
