    Does Mega Man have enough left in the tank for a seventh installment?


    It took three years, but finally, in 1985, Classic Mega Man made the jump to the Super Nintendo. After six installments on the original Nintendo Entertainment System, fans were feeling a bit tired of the formula. Does the jump to new hardware give Mega Man 7 the breath of fresh air the series needed?



    Right...

    When the Super Nintendo released in 1991, most developers said their farewells to the NES and moved on. However, Capcom decided Mega Man should stick around on the 8-bit system a bit longer and 1992 saw the release of Mega Man 5. Soon after this we saw the evolution of the Mega Man series in Mega Man X, so who would have thought that a year after that revolutionary title we'd be going back to the NES once again for Mega Man 6? It's time to see if Mega Man goes out with a bang or...

    Donkey Kong has always been one of the most recognizable characters in gaming. From the original arcade classic Donkey Kong to the groundbreaking Donkey Kong Country on the Super Nintendo. With the release of Donkey Kong Country Returns in 2010 and the upcoming Tropical Freeze, the ape is looking better than ever. It wasn't always this way however. When Nintendo sold Rare (the developer of the Donkey Kong Country trilogy and DK 64) to Microsoft, many thought DK's glory days were...

    Is five Mega Man's lucky number?


    After seeing the success of Mega Man 2 and Mega Man 3, Capcom decided that Mega Man should be a yearly affair. With the release of Mega Man 4 in 1991, it was no surprise when Mega Man 5 came out the next year. Was Capcom just milking the franchise, or did they create a masterpiece?



    One peaceful afternoon, Mega Man goes over to Dr. Light's lab only to find...

    A divine masterpiece


        In 2006, a little development group named Clover Studios released an action/adventure game called Okami on the PlayStation 2. It was to be one of the last games released on the popular home console before the advent of its successor, the PlayStation 3. While the game received praise and accolades such as IGN's 2006 Game of the Year, it failed to perform well commercially. Despite its lack of robust sales, Ready at Dawn studios wanted to put the beautifully unique...

    Is this game truly beyond the reach of both good and evil?


    Ubisoft has been known among the gaming community for a long time, producing many well know franchises such as Rayman or Assassin's Creed. Not every game was met with the success of those series though, and such is the case with Beyond Good & Evil. Conceived from the mind of Rayman creator Michael Ancel, Beyond Good & Evil was released back in 2003 for the Nintendo Gamecube, Sony Playstation 2, and Microsoft's...

    "Sonic, he really moves, Sonic, he's got an attitude, Sonic, he is the fastest thing alive, the fastest thing alive, THE FASTEST THING ALIIIIIIVE!"

    The year is 1991, and Nintendo rules the home console market with an iron grip. SEGA already made an attempt to stop Nintendo with the SEGA Master System, a console which had more power than the NES, but never got the support it needed. Then SEGA released the Genesis, a success, but not an immediate success. The system kickstarted after a Blue Dude with 'Tude arrived fashionably late.

    How in the world was the fastest...

    Welcome, Mr. Guest

        The Starship Damrey was the first of the Guild02 titles by Level-5 to make it to the eShop. Expectation were fairly high after the magnificent Guild01 titles, but sadly, it does not live up to these expectations.
        The point of the game is to get you, whoever you are, out of a Cold Sleep Capsule. There are no instructions whatsoever on how to do this, and this is part of the "experience" Level-5 intended for this game. In fact, the game even advises you not to look up any guides or manuals to enhance this experience.

    Will it fly or will it tank?



    The Guild series by Level-5 is build around the idea of giving prolific developers total freedom to create the game they would want to play, regardless of marketability. This has fostered a creativity rarely seen in the industry, and so naturally the gaming world was excited when Mega Man and Dead Rising creator Keiji Inafune announced that he was contributing to the Guild02 package. His game was to be called Bugs vs. Tanks, and it was going to be about...

    Tap and Slide your way to Victory

    Rhythm Heaven came out back on the good old DS, the first in the series to hit US shores. The prior game was released in Japan only on the Game Boy Advance, and became a hit. Across the world, people imported this game (if they could) to play it; and while not understanding a word they loved it.
    Now, Rhythm Heaven is a musical game composed of multiple songs, each of which is controlled partially by you. How well you play each minigame effects the way the song plays, and if you...

    Mario’s weakness is a bucket (write that down Bowser)

    Remember in Super Smash Bros. Melee, the one trophy that was a bucket with an M on it (W if it’s turned right side up), have you ever wondered what that game was about? Probably not, since the game was only released in japan. This game probably never left Japan because of the low sales of the SNES mouse. While the game was only released in Japan, it’s completely in English, so anybody could play this game (even if it...

    How many Sonic the Hedgehog games are there? Seriously, how many "Sonic the Hedgehog" games are there? Lets find out, the original Sonic the Hedgehog on the Genesis, and one of the best platformers of the '90s, Ah 1. The audacity that is commonly referred to as Sonic '06, Ah 2. Then we have the ports of the original Genesis title, Sonic the Hedgehog on the Master System and Game Gear, Ah 3. This game isn't your usual port of today, this is a port of the yesterday, when titles that were downported actually had care and thought put into them. Levels were redesigned, entire zones were cut,...

    And so it begins.
                                 
                     

     When someone mentions the game Sonic the Hedgehog, your likely first thoughts are either the 1991 SEGA Genesis original or the cringe-worthy 2006 offering.  What you likely aren't to consider is the 1991 game's Game Gear/Master System counterpart.  This title was an 8-Bit version of the original developed by Ancient for SEGA's two other consoles: the handheld...

    Will Capcom ever make a good box art?


    By the time Mega Man 4 rolled around, people knew what to expect. Eight  robot masters with unique stages, cool weapons to use, and a great soundtrack. The question was, is Mega Man 4 the best Mega Man game yet?


    The story in Mega Man 4, like in most Mega Man games, is fairly nonessential to the overall experience, but Capcom tried to give us something interesting...

    Switch it up……….in glorious 1080p

    Mighty Switch Force was first released in the 3DS eShop in 2011, and it quickly became one of the best games on the service. About a year later, Wayforward decided to bring the game to Nintendo’s newest home console, the Wii U. But instead of it just being the same game with better visuals, Wayforward decided to push the hyper drive button and sent this game into hyper driving, and it really shows that.

    You got a secret bonus point………..I cannot believe it!

    Dynamite Headdy looks like a puppet from Jim Henson's Fraggle Rock, but really, Dynamite Headdy is a platformer that sorta plays like Ristar (and they both have similarities with each other) and was developed by treasure, known for such classics as Gunstar heroes, Sin and Punishment and McDonald's Treasure Land Adventure. When it was originally released for the genesis, it wasn't a hit, just like Ristar, but just because...

    "Objection!"

    Let's face it, most of us have seen someone use that phrase somewhere on the Internet before. While that may be the most recognizable symbol of the series, it's by far not the only thing you do in the entire game. Actually, there are two very different stages in Ace Attorney. There's a court stage(where Objections are yelled, all the time) and an investigative stage. There are five episodes in the DS version forward, and four in the GBA version. While this may not seem like much, the first takes maybe half an hour to complete,the second episode...

    Best theme park... ever.

    Nintendo Land is essentially 12 minigames in one launch title game bundled with the Wii U. Although, really, if we wanted to go technical, these minigames, called Attractions, are really much bigger than the classic minigame. There are 12 Attractions, each representing a different Nintendo series. For a quick history of Nintendo Land, it was unveiled at E3 2012 rather badly, mostly because this one game took up a huge chunk of time there that could've been spent on other things, and after this huge chunk of time, we still didn't know all that...

    Capcom's Mega Man franchise was an enormous success and the series spanned 5 games in a period of 6 years. Even with 5 games in the series, Mega Man was not know for its innovation and most of the games, while excellent, recycled the same basic formula. After the release of the Super Nintendo in 1990 Capcom decided to revamp the Mega Man series with a darker tone for an older audience. The product of this would be Mega Man X, an evolution of the franchise that changed the way we think about Mega Man.

    Because real men hunt Dracula without any pants


    If someone mentions a vampire in today's world, they would probably be met with groans and cries of disgust. Back in the 80's though, vampires were considered menacing and maybe even cool. In 1987, Konami released a game that reminds us how awesome vampires can be, and that game was Castlevania.
