Max: The Curse of Brotherhood Review (Nintendo Switch)

Max: The Curse of Brotherhood is now out on the eShop for the Nintendo Switch.  It’s a wonderfully animated puzzle-platformer that was originally released back in 2013. Flashbulb Games and Stage Clear Studios are hoping to breath new life into their title with its debut on Nintendo’s new portable system. The star of the show is of course Max, who must rescue his brother Felix.  He accidentally wished his little brother away, but dived right after him within the mysterious portal where Felix vanquished into.   Once through, players see that a large monster is carrying his brother away and Max charges after him.  The visuals right off the start are really impressive and have a gorgeous art direction to them.     The game is…

Retro Gaming Banner

Gamers are still searching for any available stock of the widely popular NES Classic Edition. Luckily you can build your own NES Classic with a Raspberry Pi 3 running RetroPie.  We’ll show you step by step how to do this in today’s Raspberry Pi Build Tutorial. Nintendo produced a wonderful product here, but came up more than short in supplying enough units.  In fact, it was embarrassingly low in supply throughout its production.  To make circumstances even worse, Nintendo then in a very strange move announced it would cease production, even when demand was at its strongest. We’ve jumped the gun and made our own Super Nintendo Classic Edition before the initial announcement, but we wanted to follow up with how to make your own…

Build your own SNES Classic!

Nintendo has finally announced what we all knew with fair certainty was coming…the SNES Classic. In May, I went ahead and made my own, since acquiring the last NES Classic was only feasible through pure luck or outright persistence. I refused to pay a penny over MSRP, so I was only able to acquire a unit thanks to text alerts from a stock alerter site that updated every minute across every popular online retailer.  I surely hope Nintendo doesn’t pull this stunt again to their fan base, as there would be no excuse for not knowing how high the demand will be for this in September. Making your own SNES Classic is actually a fairly simple exercise. In the video below, you’ll see I acquired…

Let’s Play: F-Zero on Big Blue

Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice Review (PS4 Pro)

In a time where open world games are saturating the market, Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice comes in and demonstrates how fantastic a shorter and more linear game experience can still be. The story is one of darkness, beauty and mystery. It’s incredibly raw and original. It grips you from the start and simply refuses to let go. Gamers take the role of Senua, a celtic warrior who is on a personal journey that is incredibly unique, terrifying and is unlike any game before it. The closest reference I can even use to compare it to is Eternal Darkness. You’ll be exploring an absolutely hellish world where nothing is like it seems and players will struggle to decipher between what are hallucinations and reality.     Ninja…

Justice Duel Review (NES)

Justice Duel Review (NES)

Retro gaming is more popular than ever with gamers seeing remakes of iconic classics and brand new 2D based releases from many developers.  They often feature the old school, pixelated art style from the 8 and 16-bit era.  Mega Cat Studios are not only developers of some great retro infused software, but they also produce these games for the Nintendo Entertainment System and Sega Genesis.  On top of that, they manufacture their very own cartridges alongside a nice manual and product box.  It’s a total time warp to picking up a game back in the era of these amazing game systems from the late 80’s and early 90’s.     Today we are looking at Justice Duel for the NES.  This is post World War…
