In the past, I’ve discussed a couple of different NES clones and how they can be an decent alternative to the dying population of original NES consoles (see Generation NEX and NeoFami).

Introduction “There are assuredly a thousand titles of fair quality […]

Gamecube 2D Shooter Library: Classic Shmup Action

Even though it has very long way before it matches the massive shooter libraries of the Sega Dreamcast and Saturn, the Nintendo Gamecube is slowly building a modest library of shmups that is uncharacteristic of a more modern console. There is only one real exclusive in the bunch, but it had some of the better […]

Radio Allergy: Radirgy To Blast Onto The US Gamecube

Even though VG Cats would have you believe otherwise, the Nintendo Gamecube is not yet dead. The Gamecube seems to be taking a page from the Dreamcast’s book of survival by bring 2D shooters in at the last moment to satisfy hardcore gamers.

Final Fantasy III Walkthrough

We begin our journey in a cave with our ambidexterous quadruplet orphans, unless you are playing the DS version and you have a “well thought out” party of heroes…  Head the only way you can, looting as you go, until you are met with your first boss.  The land turtle should be a fairly easy […]

Final Fantasy II Walkthrough

  You begin in a fight with four darkknights.  This fight is ofcourse a loosing battle and soon after you loose Firion will wake up in a room with two white mages.  They ofcourse state the obvious in their cliché phrases: “You are lucky to be alive” and what not.  Soon after you begin to […]

Final Fantasy I Walkthrough

We begin with the party of Light Warriors outside of the providence of Coneria.  All the towns are the same, so no reason to go to each of them (this applies throughout the game).  In the original game you did not have to go talk to the king and you could just head out on […]

Phantasy Star Online Dreamcast and Gamecube Servers Will Shut Down Soon

Even back in the Dreamcast’s prime years I had a bad feeling about online game. While I did have fun (and frustration) playing Dreamcast games like Unreal Tournament online, I knew that games that primarily depended on online gameplay would not be worth the long-term investment as they would eventually be turned off. As a […]

Meta-Review: Uniracers / Unirally – Super Nintendo (SNES)

You wouldn’t know it from the screenshots, but Uniracers is one of the most fun racing/stunt games on the SNES and possibly the 16-bit era as a whole. Unfortunately, even in the 16-bit era, the gaming kiddies were mostly interested in cool graphics and such. Combine that with the unusual name and its understandable why […]

Preview of Bust-A-Move Bash on the Wii

It’s already been demonstrated numerous times that the Wii’s motion-sensing “wii-mote” can take modern game genres and make them more engaging (see the Wii’s new commercials for a demonstration), but we haven’t seen many examples of taking old-school 2D games to the next level (Metal Slug being the only one so far). Majesco, however has […]

New GBA & PSX Emulation Developments for the Dreamcast

The Dreamcast is an extremely versatile machine – there’s no denying that.
