Modern Review: Slain: Back from Hell (PS Vita)

Review: MVS MagicKey (Neo Geo MVS To AES Adapter)


SNK's Neo Geo is famous with gamers the world over, which is surprising when you consider that in terms of pure units sold, it barely registers on the scale. The SNES and Mega Drive – the Neo Geo's contemporary rivals – outsold it by a considerable margin, yet the system still managed to attract a loyal fanbase which delighted in the fact that the [ … ]


Hardware Review: Everdrive GBA X5 (Game Boy Advance) Flash Cartridge


In what could be described as the most anticipated arrival from Krikzz’s retro gaming headquarters, the Ukrainian mastermind has finally released an Everdrive flash cartridge for the Game Boy Advance.

Retrospective: NBA Jam


During the early 1990’s an arcade machine would grace the gaming world with a new style of sports title different than anything that had been seen before.

Youngest Retro Gamer Reviews: Sonic The Hedgehog (Sega Master System)


With Sonic The Hedgehog turning 25 years old earlier this week, it's safe to say that as retro gamers we're slowing aging along with the games we know and love. We can talk about these timeless titles for hours on end and pour over our childhood spent with Sega and Nintendo, but how exactly would today's youth rate what we consider a classic? Here [ … ]


Retro Review: E.V.O.: Search for Eden (Super Nintendo)

EVO Review

Enix published some terrific hits for the Super Nintendo. ActRaiser, Terranigma, E.V.O…..wait what? What’s E.V.O you say? I’m not talking about the fighting game tournament. I’m talking about E.V.O.: Search for Eden, a hidden Super Nintendo action-RPG about the evolution of life. You are guided by Gaia, the daughter of the Sun and the Earth, to s [ … ]

Retrospective: Handheld & Bootleg 'Contra III - The Alien Wars' Ports


Contra III is wonderful. It's a game that sets a blistering pace from the moment you press start, never missing a beat in it’s 30 minute runtime. It constantly introduces new ideas to launch you forward, quite literally by the end of the fourth stage. In the first level alone you have destructible cars, a rideable tank, feral dogs and an air raid t [ … ]

Retro Review: Extreme Violence (Commodore Amiga)


You’ll probably look at the title above, presumably glance ever so briefly at the screenshots and more than likely scroll down from this article and read the latest gaming news instead.

Retro Comparison: Resident Evil 1 Vs. Resident Evil 2


The Resident Evil series is one of the most iconic franchises to hit store shelves during the emergence of 3D gaming consoles during the 1990’s. It was marketed to older gamers which was definitely a newer concept for console gaming. After the original Resident Evil made its mark on the industry, the announcement of the sequel created a huge buzz t [ … ]
