I would love to see Platinum Games take on Base Wars

With an outstanding score on Metacritic and a 9/10 from our own Chris Carter, NieR: Automata has proven once again that Platinum Games is one of the best developers in the game today. So much so that seemingly every time people talk about P...

This custom Famicom Pocket was a good idea

Can you cram a Famicom Mini inside a Game Boy? Yes. But should you? Hell yeah! Well, maybe not you you, but Kei Studio sure managed the feat with an impressive "Famicom Pocket" build. This 25-minute-long video gets into the specifics, as d...

Holy shit, Japanese gamers really like old games

The Famicom Mini is exploding in Japan, topping the hardware charts at 261,381 units sold in its first week in Japan. That's nearly triple the amount of second place, PlayStation 4. PS4 Pro, released this past week, is included in the PS4's...

A baby unboxes a baby-sized NES Classic Edition

The NES Classic Edition is already shaping up to be one of this holiday season's more elusive purchases. While waiting in line for one this morning, a man who looked to be about 35 offered me and others waiting alongside me $100 in cash fo...

Nintendo unleashes more nostalgia with NES Classic manuals

[Header courtesy of Retro Protection] Tomorrow marks the release of the NES Classic console and most people are probably not going to find it in stores. Pre-orders have been sold out for months and popularity has been at an all-time high fo...

NES Classic is surprisingly powerful

Nintendo's NES Classic Edition won't be made widely available until this Friday, but some folks have already gotten one and pulled it apart. The first pictures of the mainboard came from GameSpot Senior Reviews Editor Peter Brown. Enterpris...

Nintendo is going totally '80s to celebrate the NES Classic

Nintendo's cute lil' NES Classic Edition will be available (or maybe not) in stores a week from today. To commemorate the launch, Nintendo is celebrating with some throwback '80s events at its stores and on social media. That's anachronisti...

I'm down for an NES Classic turbo controller

As a kid, games used to be tremendously hard. While I persevered, sometimes whipping out the NES Max or the Game Genie would be my answer. Back then, I mostly just wanted to fool around instead of trying to prove something; nowadays, I like...

Someone made a custom mini NES that takes cartridges

When Nintendo unveiled its miniature Nintendo Entertainment System a couple weeks ago, one of the recurring reactions was that a hobbyist could make something similar but better. Well, someone has! Creator daftmike originally intended to m...

The Wit.nes is a neat little NES demake of The Witness

First off, love that name. It's perfect. The Wit.nes is a free "tribute" to Thekla's wonderful PlayStation 4 puzzle game The Witness. It isn't a full demake -- this is a demo, technically! -- but there are 32 puzzles and you can walk around...

That's a slick-looking NES visual compendium

A visual compendium for the Nintendo Entertainment System is something I'd happily leaf through and that concept has successfully taken to Kickstarter. A day into its month-long crowdfunding campaign, Bitmap Books has met its funding goal f...

It's nice to see the Ice Climbers again

Coming off of Babymetal (what a lively comment thread that was!), it makes sense Nintendo would go with something more familiar for the next Super Mario Maker costume. The Ice Climbers? Why, sure! We haven't seen that dynamic duo in a whil...

Gunmaker made a real-life NES Zapper handgun

A Texan gun manufacturer has been criticised for modifying a Glock handgun to look like a NES zapper (yup, that plastic gun thing we used to shoot virtual ducks and clay pigeons back in the day). Precision Syndicate insists the gun - which ...

Obscure Video Games: Wai World 2

Konami used to have a sense of humor. The long-defunct Parodius series is well-loved for being a wacky send-up of its hardcore shoot-'em-up Gradius. Even more obscure, however, are the Wai Wai games, which (outside of Konami Krazy Racers) n...

These Contra action figures are historically accurate

Hot on the heels of other classic 8-bit action figures such as purple Jason and grumpy Godzilla, NECA announced the upcoming release of more toys based on games we used to love (well maybe not love, enjoy? Tolerate?) as children. These figu...

The NES just got a brand new competitive shooter

The Nintendo Entertainment System's last officially licensed title released in December of 1994 (name that game!), but that hasn't stopped chiptune artist and now homebrew NES game dev Dustin Long from releasing a new title. Star Versus&nb...

Obscure Video Games: Kick Challenger - Air Foot

In 1986 Nintendo released the Famicom Disk System add-on for the Famicom in Japan. For some reason the company decided it wasn't worth the time to sell it anywhere else in the world, but that didn't stop game makers from releasing over 200 ...

Obscure Video Games: Magical Doropie

Yes, video game nerds, I know Vic Tokai localized Magical Doropie as The Krion Conquest in North America. However, the Japanese version is superior (and has a nice fan translation), so that's why I played it. For those of you unfamiliar wi...

That time Sharp built an NES into a television

A television set with a built-in Nintendo Entertainment System sounds like the sort of extravagant purchase I'd make if, as a youngster, I was nearly run over by a bad man and he handed me a blank check that I could then proceed to cash fo...

Obscure Video Games: Panic Restaurant

So this week I decided to go crazy and review a game that actually saw release in the US. I still consider it pretty obscure, though. The game is Panic Restaurant, a 1992 NES release from the late, legendary game designer Kenji Eno and his ...
