SNK asks which Neo Geo games we want ported to PlayStation

Despite never owning a Neo Geo (I was mad jealous of my friend who had a Neo Geo Pocket back in the day), I've played many of the system's best games thanks to digitally-distributed ports and compilation discs. SNK shows no s...   more

I never thought Super Mario Bros. would make me so angry

In a cramped beachside arcade, sandwiched between Galaga and Mortal Kombat 3, sits my white whale. It's surrounded by restaurants, a roller coaster, churro vendors, and a carousel, this sad little Super Mario Bros. arcade cab...   more

There's a new Time Crisis and it's NOT for iOS

Pix the Cat is out now and its Nostalgia mode is sweet

For the same reasons I was excited as heck for Cuphead, I am loving Pix the Cat's Snake-like Nostalgia Mode for reminding me of Felix the Cat and 20s animation in general.  And then you realize everything else about this game is nuts and that it's just been released for free for PlayStation Plus members so I'm going to go download that jam right now before my subscription lapses.    more
