VC Review: Super Mario Bros.: The Lost Levels

October 16, 2007

When the Virtual Console was initially announced, one of the first games to come to many minds was the original sequel to Super Mario Bros., a game that didn’t reach Americans until the early 90s, and then only in re-made form under the guise of “The Lost Levels” in the excellent compilation Super Mario All-Stars […]

VC Review: Sin and Punishment

October 9, 2007

Seven years ago, Treasure, the creators of Gunstar Heroes for the Sega Genesis, put together an on-rails shooter for the N64 called Sin and Punishment: Successor of the Earth. Quite possibly the most requested Virtual Console import game (and certainly one of the most wanted Virtual Console releases in general), Sin and Punishment has finally […]

VC Review: Super Metroid

September 10, 2007

While the Metroid series has found its path as a 3D first person adventure as of late, fans of the franchise still look at the 2D entries as Metroid in its proper form. Super Metroid is the title that most point to as the pinnacle in the series, and for good reason.

VC Review: Paper Mario

July 30, 2007

The Nintendo 64 was a device that promised plenty of quality games, but in the end, the majority seemed to be first party Nintendo efforts. After the Playstation took off and blasted through the sales charts, the N64 fell behind. At the end of its life cycle, months before the Gamecube launched, Nintendo released a […]

VC Review: Star Fox 64

Zentendo Will Strike Soon!

June 19, 2007

Pretty soon, we’re going to be launching Zentendo, our new Nintendo news site.   We’re coming on July 1st. And, as I hinted at earlier, we’re going to be getting a megaton endorsement shortly after our launch. Stay tuned for that. 😉 That’s all I can say for now.

Retro Review: Kid Icarus

June 7, 2007

Back in 1986, a game came around that went on to become a cult classic, a game whose name inspired awe and fond memories in the hearts of gamers. That game went on to have an unnoticed sequel on the Game Boy, and since then, its name was uttered only in the past-tense and fans […]

Wishlist – 6/5/07

June 5, 2007

Here’s my current wishlist so far as this year is concerned–I’ll update this every once in a while to see how things change.  

Paper Mario to Virtual Console

May 23, 2007

  This is one of my all-time favorites–and it’s been a long time since I’ve played it, too. Super Paper Mario has sparked the Paper Mario flame, and I’m really looking forward to diving back in. This will be my top VC purchase for a while until I manage to download it (it’s not out […]

Geometry Wars on Wii And DS…

May 22, 2007

  This is pretty cool. I wonder if it’ll be a Virtual Console download…It would be perfect. I’ve heard the game’s frantic arcade style is right up my ally, but I have yet to try it for myself. Interesting announcement, at least.
