The Nintendo Famicom or Nintendo Entertainment System (for those of us in the west) was the company's first step into the home console market following their success with arcade machines and the much loved Game & Watch. Although it wasn't an over night success Nintendo’s perseverance and cleaver positioning in the market the NES became a huge [ … ]
Unholy Night is a brand new 2D one-on-one fighting game for the Super Nintendo that was officially unveiled in late 2016. The game caused quite a stir once it was revealed, not only because of the format on which it was running, but also because of the credentials of the team behind it.
Unholy Night: The Darkness Hunter is the result of a collob [ … ]
Primal Rage garnered a moderate level of success when it hit arcades in the early 1990s, and in subsequent years Atari's prehistoric brawler was ported to pretty much every contemporary home console (and a coupe of handheld ones, too). The ports came with varying degrees of arcade accuracy, but for the most part were deemed to be worthy alternati [ … ]
Before I actually delve into the main meat and potatoes of Cowardly Creations’ recent PS4 and Vita release, I want to discuss the title. Uncanny Valley is named after the notion that the more accurate simulations of human faces and expressions get, the more we (as in, us real humans) become aware that they might not be authentic. A great example [ … ]
Retro Gamer Magazine has bucked the trend in recent times, as many other print magazines close down or go fully digital the retro-themed monthly publication goes from strength to strength.
What’s not to love about NBA Jam? Despite its age, the two on two match-up has stood the test of time with its fast paced action and hilarious multiplayer gameplay. Knowing how well regarded the game is it should come as no surprise that fans have unofficially updated the game to feature this year’s roster.
Several months ago there was some impressive progress made in Game Boy modification circles after hardware hacker BennVenn managed to get the Game Boy Color running through a Game Boy Advance SP screen. While providing a much crisper image and an illuminated screen, the solution was slightly hindered by the bulky size of the wide LCD screen. Althou [ … ]
In recent times some retro gamers have converted old iPods into ZX Spectrum tape emulators by converting tape images of games into audio files. By playing the high pitched noise through the headphone jack and back into the micro-computer, the ZX Spectrum is none the wiser that modern technology is feeding it data rather than a traditional cassette [ … ]
While DRM today may been seen as overly aggressive and frustrating, copy protection methods of yesteryear actually brought along some charm whilst keeping the pirates at bay. One of the more notable examples of this was the code wheel - a collection of layered card held together by a split pin with windows revealing secret codes underneath. Althoug [ … ]
Back in the late 1990s, while Lara Croft was happily raiding tombs on pretty much every platform you could shake a stick at (even the maligned N-Gage got a port of Tomb Raider), Nintendo fans could have been forgiven for feeling a little left out. Sure, Nintendo 64 owners got to plunder hidden treasure in Indiana Jones and the Infernal Machine, but [ … ]
Nothing fans the flames of online discussion more than the topic of retro emulation, but hold on to your hats because we’re delving in again. As we’ve discussed here at RetroCollect on multiple occasions in the past, there are numerous ways that gamers can play classic games using PC-based emulators or via hardware like the Retro Freak and the Re [ … ]
While the Nintendo Game Boy may have ruled the handheld roost in the early nineties, it didn’t stop the many efforts from a wide range of companies to dethrone the portable king. Watara were one of the bold companies copying the Game Boy’s ethos, however, their cheap alternative - the SuperVision - came across as a little too cheap, and quickly fad [ … ]
The Nintendo Wii is one of the most successful consoles of all time, offering gamers of all sizes, shapes and ages something different to the games of past Nintendo platforms. As we have just passed the ten year anniversary we look back at the craze that swept the world. From gamers, grannies and the Redknapps, everyone enjoyed a good waggle.
For each and every gaming console out there, there's one final swansong which showcases the power behind the dated hardware it sits on. Take Shadow of The Colossus for example, a stunning adventure which pushes the PlayStation 2 to its absolute limits - limits we never knew the system even had. Although older consoles such as the Nintendo NES leave [ … ]
Over the last few years the Android operating system has opened up a whole new realm of affordable gaming options. With Google's policy on what applications are allowed on their digital store being incredibly relaxed, and the ability to manually install software, the platform has become a modern haven for emulators and retro gamers. As a result, a [ … ]
