These take the original material and alter it in an attempt to improve it and fix the rough spots...

Nintentunes: the kind of not really Nintendo edition

I used to be a fanboy, but there are too many games to enjoy that my perspective has since changed. Nintendo will always be my favorite video game company because of their ability to bring a product to market that is above all else a fun experience, but even still, as a gamer I want to experience as many of those fun moments as possible, even if it isn’t on a Nintendo console. With that said...

Nintentunes: The anti-Nintendo edition

Video game music has come a long way from the bleeps and bloops that populated most game at the inception of the medium, and seems only right to take a look back at not only game that have appeared on Nintendo consoles, but ones that have appeared on consoles that do things that Ninten-don’t (see what I did there?). With that said, I hope you enjoy this weeks walk down memory lane in this ed...

Wii Shop Channel Monday – Niki Rock ‘n’ Ball and Wonder Boy in Monster Land

Not a very thrilling day on the Wii Shop Channel, I guess.  Niki – Rock ‘n’ Ball is a new WiiWare game from Austrian developers Bplus and over on the VC we get another Sega Master System game, Wonder Boy in Monster Land.  Head past the break for full details.

Wii Shop Channel Monday – Wild West Guns, Splatterhouse 2, and Sonic the Hedgehog (again)

It looks like even Capcom, Hudson, and SNK don’t know when Nintendo will put their games out for the Virtual Console. No Mega Man today and no Ys Book I & II or Samurai Shodown II either. Instead, we get the 8-bit Master System version of Sonic The Hedgehog (which was already available in a 16-bit Genesis format) and Splatterhouse 2. What is up with the Virtual Console? At least the new ...
