After the revitalization of the Game Boy thanks to Pokémon, Nintendo started to design the true successor to the system that would eventually become the Game Boy Advance. However, to buy some time, they introduced the Game Boy Pocket, a smaller and sharper version of the original system, and soon after the Game Boy…
With the huge success of the NES Classic Edition and the SNES Classic Edition, people rightly assume that Nintendo will continue this line with the Nintendo 64 Classic Edition (which I did a theoretical games list for here), though as others have noted, it presents its own problems.
So in a Pokémon world, unsupervised ten-year-old kids can just play slots all day in gaming establishments and get no pushback? Is it even only legal because “game coins” are technically not currency and perhaps legally similar instead to tickets like the ones awarded by amusement games?
In a post yesterday, I explained that I recently dug up an old notebook full of musings from the past. A lot of it is video game related- cheat codes, lists ranking characters that I thought were cool, that kind of thing. I felt like one bit in particular deserved it’s own special treatment.
Eight Hundread and Seven. 807. That’s how many Pokémon currently exist in the Pokemon universe, and that’s if you don’t count Mega Evolutions and regional or alternate forms, that are variations of existing Pokémon, individually.
This past weekend I took my first trip to NYC and naturally, instead of visiting the Kotaku offices to visit my favorite gaming news editors, I made my way to the Nintendo NYC store for a bit of a shopping spree. The experience is something I’d been looking forward to for a while. I was not disappointed.
If you were to ask me what I think about this generation of gaming, I would say it’s a great time to be a gamer. We have advanced technology that I only dreamed about as a kid available to us in the market.
It’s hard to be objective about a game that came out nearly 20 years ago. It’s especially difficult when the game has had multiple generations to follow, with each iteration expanding and streamlining gameplay. Even so, the first generation of Pokemon did something that companies around the world strive to do: Create…
Pokémon sure has come a long way since it was first introduced in 1996 twenty years ago, and along the way it picked up a myriad of features, some good and some not-so-good (I can’t think of anyone who cared about those contests). Today, we’re talking about my favourites!
These come in the chronological order that they…
It is with immense pleasure I bring you all today the final release of my insane 187 track Mega Man tribute project.
Word on the street is that Tetris will be removed from eShop when 2015 arrives. Not only that, but previous version of the game Tetris Axis will also be removed from retail.
Mega Man November continues at Shiryu Music!
Got over two and a half hours to kill with nostalgia?
25 years? Where does time go... seems like it was but yesterday I was reading in foreign gaming magazines all about Nintendo's new portable gaming console, the Game Boy. A brick that promised portable style NES games in four shades of green on the go, fathered by none other than legendary handyman Gunpei Yokoi.
Pokémon passed me by when the first games were released in 1999 in the UK. In my head, I was too grown up for it at 15 and had the awkward moustache to prove this theory. I was about to move on from the N64 and onto the Dreamcast. Although I dismissed it, it was hard to ignore.
Arino will challenge "Super Mario Land" in next week's episode of Game Center CX. This is the first time a Game Boy game is challenged in the show's entire series. A fantastic way to celebrate 25 years of the old brick.
