Review: Castlevania (Season 1)

Adi Shankar is quite a cult hit in film circles. He's made a name for himself by fully investing into properties he loves. It's a nerdy demeanor that's absolutely infectious as its led to his famous "Bootleg Universe," in which he's produce...

Pyramid Head has joined Super Bomberman R

Just last night I was thinking that it had been way too long since I last played Super Bomberman R, a decent game that has seen noticeable improvements since launch. Instead, I started Mad Max. But tonight will be different! With the new up...

Konami might not be the same company it once was, but it went out with a bang with Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain: A Hideo Kojima Game. It's also currently half off (now $9.99) as part of a Konami PSN flash sale, which also includes a...

Metal Gear Survive delayed into 2018

The Kojima-less team making Metal Gear Survive needs a bit more time to finish up the game so Konami is delaying the PC, Xbox One, and PS4 release until "early 2018." This is probably for the best. I just played the multiplayer component of...

Hands-on with Metal Gear Survive was a bummer

Konami's attempt, in its post-Hideo Kojima future, to squeeze a little more blood out of everything the Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain team built is frustrating. It's not necessarily bad, but it does feel uncanny, just a little bit wr...

Konami notes 'desire' for new Castlevania on Switch

Can Konami get back into people's good graces? Maybe. I mean if Mel Gibson can come back into Hollywood with an Academy Award nomination anything is possible. European Brand Manager Richard Jones spoke to Miketendo64 about Super Bomberman R...

Hard Corps: Uprising joins Xbox One backward compatibility

I figured with Microsoft already adding two games to the backward compatible list this week that we wouldn't see more. Not only have they added one of the best Contra games in a long time, but they also decided to include four other games. ...

Super Bombeman R runs so much better now

As much as Super Bomberman R missed the mark in some basic, fundamental ways, the developers have stuck with it, and I have to commend their post-launch support. The latest update is a big one, offering a much-smoother frame rate (if it isn...

Ha, Konami is doing another Castlevania pachislot machine

I love how trolly the below commercial is. You open it, see the text, and hear the classic Castlevania music. It's so easy to get fired up, like maybe, just maybe Konami is coming out with a competitor for Bloodstained. But nope, it is...

It is about time we got a Castlevania compilation

Last month, Castlevania: Symphony of the Night celebrated its 20th anniversary. 20 years ago, a game regularly seen on Best Of lists, showed the world that there was still demand for rich, intense 2D action in an era where everything was ju...

Super Bomberman R will get a patch for 'control lag issues'

I wasn't holding out much hope that Super Bomberman R would see many updates, but it sounds like at least one important patch is on the way. Konami says it is "aware that some players are experiencing control lag issues" and that, better ye...

Review: Super Bomberman R

I was able to witness the rise and fall of Bomberman with my own eyes. It was one of the first games I ever played on the NES, and when developer Hudson Soft died in 2012, I poured one out for the once-great franchise. For six long years af...

Contra enters the real world on its 30th anniversary

Contra (or Probotector, depending on what part of the world you hail from) was one of the Nintendo Entertainment System's most iconic games, one that strongly resonates with people who grew up with it even today. The series just celebr...
