What Defunct Franchises Should Nintendo Raise From The Ashes?

After reading Eugene’s article regarding the resurrection of past Nintendo franchises, I started thinking to myself about other defunct franchises that might never again see the light of day, but really deserve a second chance. I am not talking about old Nintendo franchises, since Eugene has already brought that topic to light, but what about old Sega, Atari, etc…? There are some great...

What If..?

It seems that every generation has a series of consoles that battle over gaming dominance. Probably the greatest was Nintendo VS Sega.  I actually loved both systems equally, but always leaned a little towards Nintendo.

Review: Mario and Sonic win the gold…for bizarre gameplay

The 3DS edition of Mario and Sonic at the London 2012 Olympic Games hit store shelves last month. Mediocre initial review scores made me wary, but I did enjoy the eShop demo, so I finally caved and bought the cartridge.

Recently, Dan posted an article about a new Super Nintendo game in development.  As I read the article I felt a chill of excitement run down my spine and started thinking, would this really be a bad idea if it continued?

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...

Sega was one of the first companies on board the Wii U train when the console was formally announced this June saying that Aliens: Colonial Marines would be coming to Wii U.
