It’s nearly here, the Video Game Market 2! With less than two weeks to go until we’ll be feasting our eyes on a venue filled to the brim with retro game sellers and specialists, but the more important question is, are you ready? With over 100 tables loaded with the classics, merchandise, gear, and more, […]
Further proving his prowess with Sega’s 16-bit console, the creator of the Mega Everdrive and Everdrive-MD flash cartridges has just released a new addition to his hardware range. Krikzz’s FlashKit MD is a cheaper alternative to the SD Card enabled devices, allowing gamers to program a single game ROM onto cartridge.
The original PlayStation fell from the radar of most gamers far too quickly. While many stuck around past the release of the PS2 for Final Fantasy IX, once the likes of Gran Turismo 3 had hit most gamers and the original grey box had parted ways. It’s a real shame, as games like World’s Scariest Police […]
Although making a name for itself on the Amiga, it would appear that Bullfrog and Electronic Arts had plans to bring Populous to the Commodore 64. While the game may have been cancelled by EA Germany, an early prototype and technical demo has since surfaced online for gamers to sample.
If you owned a Sega Megadrive in the 90s, you have no doubt played Streets of Rage and Streets of Rage 2, the often copied but never equaled beat-em-ups that enthralled kids and adults alike. Not only were the games smash hits, the soundtracks were too. Composed and produced by Yuzo Koshiro, Kyoji Kato, and […]
Actually, that title is a bit misleading – the ultimate Dreamcast controller would be one that added a second analogue stick on the right hand side… but we’re getting ahead of ourselves. The Dreamcast is a console that was officially cancelled by Sega in 2001, but here in 2015 it is a system that continues […]
Believe it or not but the 16-bit classic Super Mario World can be beaten in a mere few minutes. While this speedrun may rely on taking advantage of the console’s memory and forcing it to run beneficial glitches, pulling them off without an emulator is anything but easy. With countless gamers fighting for the fastest […]
We’re big fans of Theme Hospital – we love treating the ridiculous diseases such as Bloaty Head, King Complex and Hairyitis (something that Nick seems to be in the early stages of at present). If you’re similarly enamoured with the excellent sequel to Theme Park, you may wish to have a look at EA’s Origin […]
The N64 launched with only two games – Mario 64 and Pilotwings (plus a third, Saikyou Haniu Shogi, if you insist on being pedantic). It was of course Mario which captivated and encouraged people to buy the system; he was Nintendo’s all-jumping non-shaving star. Shamefully it overshadowed this equally excellent “flight-sim” from Paradigm Entertainment. Admittedly […]
Fans of Sega RPGs beyond Phantasy Star (and anyone out there who’s unlocked all the characters in Fighters Megamix) should be delighted to know that after the longest time, the weird Mega Drive RPG developed by the legendary AM2, Rent-a-Hero, has finally been fan-translated.
