Do you remember?: Comix Zone

When we were young teens, me and my brother laid claim to the basement. The rest of the house was neat and orderly, a pastel world of floral designs and tasteful drapes. But, the basement was ours. A savage land of hand-me-down sofas, coffe...

PlayStation 4 is getting a nostalgic PS2-style theme

I'm not sure how many of you mess around with alternate themes, but this new "Legacy Dashboard" dynamic theme for PlayStation 4 is going to turn some heads. It brings back fond PS2 memories. The theme was put together by Truant Pixel "with...

What are your experiences with arcade gaming?

Like roughly 90% of the rest of the world, I spent the days leading up to Halloween watching the second season of Stranger Things, which takes place in 1984. Nintendo didn't hit North America until 1985, so kids like the Stranger Thing...

I'm going to be a better Tamagotchi owner this time

Admittedly, I was never the most responsible Tamagotchi owner out there but, if given a second chance, I think I could raise one of these little digital creatures right. I'll feed it, clean up after it, the works! Two decades later, Bandai ...

Review: Mystik Belle

Life can be pretty tough to a young, upcoming witch. Just ask Belle MacFae, currently under threat of expulsion from the Hagmore School of Magic. Her crime? She ruined the Walpurgisnacht Brew, which had been painstakingly prepared for a mys...

Sometimes, the enemy makes the game

[There are not many feelings in this world, besides sex, that are as satisfying as besting an enemy that genuinely tests your skill. When you come out on top, you feel like a total badass. Not because it was easy but because it wasn’t...

This 1998 BioShock demake is something else

This gets my vote for today's coolest thing (that isn't new but is new to me). 98DEMAKE is a YouTube creator who takes modern video games and imagines what they might've looked like had they originally released in 1998. I've seen plenty of ...

A collection of gaming memories

[I never owned a current-gen console as a kid, and I really didn’t mind that much either. CowBearSnail takes me back to a time, before the internet, when others’ opinions didn’t have as much sway over the way I played vide...

7 things I'd like brought back from when I was a kid...

When I was a kid I was into things. Things that gave me that rare combination of joy and fuzziness I've only since felt for women and tandoori chicken with mint chutney. Some of these things were games and some were literature. Some were ac...

Whoa, who the frak is Fronz? Hi! Some of our long time readers might remember me as the first editor Niero hired back in 2006. I was the Editor-in-Chief in the interim between Robert Summa and Nick Chester, and later on I helped Matthew Raz...

SNES Classic loaded with Star Fox 2 launching this September

Well, it's really happening. If the NES Classic didn't appeal to you, then this one surely will draw you in. Nintendo confirmed on Twitter that a Super Nintendo Classic Edition (which means it'll be HDMI ready like its predecessor) is on th...

These new Sonic videos don't feature much Sonic

[Header courtesy of Juanjosesa97 on DeviantArt] Nintendo may have stolen the show with Mario Odyssey, but that doesn't mean his rival isn't still looking impressive. Well, I mean, mostly impressive, since these new videos for Sonic Mania an...

Axiom Verge certainly looks enticing on Switch

While it was not so surprising that Axiom Verge would be making the jump to the Switch, what is super neat is that developer Thomas Happ Games has partnered with BadLand Games to create a physical edition of the game for consoles. Dubbed th...

New Double Dragon IV trailer sets up the story

Double Dragon IV is coming out in a few days! I didn't realize how close we were to the launch date, but I'm not so sure I'm going to even pick this up. Having couch co-op is a big plus, but the lack of online co-op definitely hurts. The PS...

Nintendo unleashes more nostalgia with NES Classic manuals

Review: Super Rad Raygun

Super Rad Raygun is a game I’ve been following for a little while. I first saw it as plain old Rad Raygun at SGC 2013. It was sporting a Game Boy aesthetic and had gameplay reminiscent of Mega Man. It was a fun little title that wasn&...

Mario and Luigi's long-lost father appears

It's been thirty years since the NES launched in the U.S., and all that time we've not known a whole lot about the Mario Brothers' home life. The closest we've gotten was in incidental scenes in the Paper Mario and other RPG serie...

Carmen Sandiego caught at last

Carmen Sandiego's globe-trotting crime spree has finally come to an end, thanks to the diligent efforts of one internet sleuth.  That's what I'd say if this were a news story. What we have here instead is an amusing article by Tod...

Review: Day of the Tentacle Remastered
