A quick guide to the Fire Emblem series

Fire Emblem. One of the most puzzling Nintendo franchises for sure. Most people's first experience with the series was Super Smash Bros. Melee on the GameCube, which included Marth and Roy. Neither of their games released out...

This GBA SP Switch dock is crude, but functional

The Game Boy Advance SP is a masterpiece of a system. While the Game Gear had the backlight years before it, this was the first time I was able to play a Game Boy without attaching a gross worm light accessory to it, and man, did the G...

Someone translated the Full Metal Alchemist GBA game

Man, Full Metal Alchemist. It's required reading for incoming anime enthusiasts, and for good reason -- it ticks all the right boxes -- especially the newer series, Brotherhood, which is a direct manga adaptation. If you're pining for the o...

Lucky! Europe gets Advance Wars 2 on Wii U

One of my most-played Wii U games is, I kid you not, Advance Wars. That's not a judgment on the quality of the console's (lovely) exclusives, it's just that the game is really damn good. I'm dying for the sequel, my favorite in the series, ...

Obscure Video Games: Hachiemon

How long do you wait before replaying games?

When I was younger, I would spend months -- and in some cases years, on and off -- completing the same videogames repeatedly. Forget new game plus. I didn't need extra motivation. This was back when I could only afford to buy a handful of t...
