Celebrating the 25th Anniversary of the Sega Mega Drive

Going by the original Japanese launch date of October 1988, the Sega Mega Drive (Sega Genesis) turns 25 in 2013.

This really gets to be a problem when a friend will want to play something together, but I’m in the mood for a different g...

Five Games That Need A Revival

Recently, many classic game franchises have been revived, after long periods out of the limelight. I don’t need to remind you of a certain Duke, who’s lack of releases in the last decade has become an industry joke. In addition, two Nintendo favourites, Donkey Kong and Kirby, have starred in new platforming games, after years of only being used to flesh out the rosters of Smash Bros an...
