Review: Rad Rodgers: World One

As I mentioned in my preview piece, Rad Rodgers: World One came out of nowhere. I was struck by the mind-blowing graphics and how 3D Realms was publishing a game from a relatively unknown developer. It looked like a throwback to Commander K...   read

Rad Rodgers: World One has sleeper-hit potential

Rad Rodgers: World One is a game that, quite literally, came out of nowhere for me. We got a message from the publisher, 3D Realms, and I was blown away by the trailer. I wasn’t so sure the game’s humor would work, but the amoun...   read

Dell of all places might be your last chance for getting the NES Classic before Christmas

I love that we can get pitches for new Sega Genesis games in 2016

We're in an era where we can get brand new original Dreamcast shoot 'em ups and SNES platformers. While publishers are basically remaking every classic game in their catalog they can get their hands on, we also have a collective of indie de...   read

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&...   read

Inti Creates and Sunsoft are working together on a new 8-bit Blaster Master game

Blaster Master is well known to a lot of people. It basically took me to the next level way back when, as it was notably difficult and contained a mixture of action platforming and Metroidvania exploration. I even explained how it was ...   read

Nyko is selling an ugly, but functional wireless take on the NES Classic Controller

Despite its limitations and niche appeal I'm enjoying my time with the NES Classic (I beat several games, and my wife and I died on the last boss of Super C the other day!). Yet, those short cords are a pain! As much as the feel of bei...   read

The NES Classic Edition might be tough to get at GameStop

So uh the NES Classic Edition? It's a Nintendo thing, you'd expect that it would be poorly rolled out by now, and it seems like that's the case. It's a commonplace strategy where the publisher thinks that no one will buy their stuff, a...   read
