Apple will soon release iOS 11 for their iPhone and iPad devices, and with it comes a heavy toll. With the release of iOS 11, Apple intends to stop supporting 32-bit applications, so if an app has not been updated for 64-bit support, they will no longer function.…
First we touched on the Namco arcade classic, Pac-Man. And now, it’s time to look at their OTHER perennial “Golden Age” hit, the space shooter that truly defined the “shmup” genre, Galaga!
I’m a big shoot-’em-up fan, and it’s been a minute since I covered one, so what better time to take a look at Gradius III on the SNES and in the arcade!
Normally I would say a shooter that pits the player against an armour-plated hot air balloon would instantly earn its place among the greats, but the Master System version of G-LOC was probably a disaster waiting to happen for a couple of reasons. For one, there was the…
Just in time for Wrestlemania Weekend, in the interest of fairness, I take the “Wrestlemania Arcade” challenge myself, and since Corey already played my FAVORITE wrestler, The Undertaker, I play my SECOND fav. wrestler of all time, Bret “The Hitman” Hart. *SPOILER* The trick was, after we…

Moving on from the early 2017 Capcom-fest, it’s time to look at one of first video games I ever experienced as a kid, arguably the single most popular and successful arcade game of all time, 1980’s Pac-Man, by Namco!
With WWE Wrestlemania 33 right around the corner, I thought there was no time like the present to share the Game Challenge we did of us trying to play the mid-90s Midway Wrestlemania Arcade game!
The true Final Fight is about to begin! Will Haggar and Co. win the day?
Last Chance! It’s come down to Corey vs. Ivan, and this time…it’s personal!
Time for some more street brawlin’, punch flyin’, gang bustin’ action!
Corey joins us for Round 2, as we try to beat the “Ironman” at his own game. Literally.
As the LAST bit of Capcom action for now (honest), it’s time for the FINAL Fight! Haggar’s daughter has been taken, he’s got a certain set of skills, and with some help, he’s gonna get her back!
Shaking things up a bit, it’s time for a bit of racing action. Specifically, Ivan “Ironman” Stewart’s Super Off Road!

“Game Masters” Exhibition Museum für Kunst und Gewerbe Steintorplatz 1 20099 Hamburg, Germany Entrance fee: 12 Euros adults, 8 Euros student/apprentice/OAP, free for under 18s If the idea does endure that video games don’t count as an art form, the presence of the “Game Masters” exhibition in…
Harold is up to bat, taking his turn at Kid Niki on NES!
For today’s Game Challenge, it’s time for a little nostalgia trip, as I challenge myself to play a game I owned as a kid: the VERY decent NES port of the Data East arcade classic, Kid Niki!
In celebration of my favorite season, I play one of my favorite arcade games of all time: Killer Instinct 2!
Hello! If you’ve seen my other article you’d know that, in its’ own lunchtime, the Zx Spectrum was a pretty big deal. Things have progressed since its’ 80’s heyday however – so does the humble Speccy still have any games that are worth playing today? I argue yes. It…
Happy Halloween everybody! No better way to celebrate, than with one of the spookiest, most Halloween-iest games ever made, the Capcom fighting classic Darkstalkers!
Region: SFC, PAL Developer: Sunsoft Publisher: Sunsoft Released: 1994 Welcome back, friends! Now that I’ve evaluated the trolls, gimmicks and horizons of the European/Australian NES library, it’s time to double the bits and supercharge the mission by taking a look at the SNES games that America never got…
In today’s Game Challenge, Reed and I take on the arcade spy classic, Elevator Action!
Moving right along with the Halloween-themed fun, here’s an obscure but unique arcade classic, where you play a ghost, that has to inhabit enemy monsters and use their powers to survive!
It’s the N64’s 20th birthday in North America this week, so why not look at an N64 game for the first time on this show? It’s N64 vs. Arcade to see if the home port holds up!
Egad – today marks the 30th anniversary of the world-wide release of Outrun. Now, I think articles like this make no secret of the fact that I’m somewhat of an Outrun obsessive. However, I’m reasonably certain that there can be no way of objectively denying that Outrun was…
The first time I played Donkey Kong was in the mid-80s on an Atari 2600. I wasn’t terribly impressed then and I’m still not impressed by it now. But before I get to the Atari port, I should talk about where it started. I’ve never liked arcade games,…
The Super Summer ends by riding off into the sunset. I also spend some time encapsulating the 16-bit war.
Region: PAL-A, PAL-B, Famicom Disk System Developer: Nintendo Publisher: Nintendo Released: 1993 I have been called upon to clean up some unfinished business – there’s another PAL-exclusive NES game I didn’t know about. I’m already excited! It’s a Nintendo-developed platformer released in 1993, and it’s called: uh… Mario…
For today’s Retro Solo episode, I take a look at Tumblepop, a 1991 #arcade hit by Data East. It’s kinda like Snow Bros., but with vacuums. Weird as hell, but hella fun.
We’ve got more Donkey Kong action, as Harold takes a crack at Barrel Madness!
It’s the 35th anniversary of #DonkeyKong, and to celebrate, we’re Game Challenging ourselves to a weird version of the original arcade game! I’m up to bat first, and madness ensues…
Players: 1 Back in 1990, a console simply wasn’t a console unless it had a light gun with a couple of games to go with it. The Amstrad GX-4000 was no exception of course, and if you had the mis/fortune of finding yourself equipped with both a GX4000…
A look at another cool (but hard) arcade puzzle game, Magical Drop! Not AS cool as Puzzle Bobble, in my opinion, but still pretty rad (yes rad).
New Game Challenge! We decide to see how far Harold can get in Double Dragon on one credit. But he’s Harold.
So, it’s Sega week around here, eh? In that case, let’s take a look at one of the more obscure titles in the Sega stable: A.B. Cop. Never heard of A.B. (Air Bike) Cop? Don’t worry, most of the internet doesn’t seem to have either. Not only is…
