Despite being a die-hard SEGA I’m jumping on the “Top 30 NES Games” bandwagon following Nintendo’s announcement of a new NES Classic “clone console.” Growing up with Alex Kidd as my main man, I never grew to really enjoy the original Mario games (and I still don’t care…
So, inspired by both a couple of other people’s similar articles on here today, but also inspired by their likely source, the announcement of Nintendo’s “NES Classic Mini”, coming in November, I am now writing this article, right here on Skirmish Frogs! (cue fanfare). It’s funny, because…

What are your favourite video game series? What video game series have you beaten the most games in? I asked myself these questions and thought that for the most part, both lists would be fairly similar. Some of what I found was what I expected, but there were…

Hot off the presses, I just finished this bad boy up today, and since it’s brand spanking new, I thought I’d switch it up, and link y’all to my blog page itself. I wrote a first article on this subject, video game box art, last year. The…
LADIES AND GENTLEMEN! Welcome to the first ever Retro Thunderdome, a battle of graphics, design and overall fun between two giants of the genre. Today’s contest pits old against slightly less old, originator versus innovator, master against pupil. While it may seem like an unfair fight, in the…
