CES 2010: Hands-On with Super Street Fighter IV

on Tue, Jan 12, 2010 | By Jeffrey L. Wilson

When Seth Killian, community manager, Capcom, offered to take me on in a game of Super Street Fighter IV, it was more than just a walkthrough of the upgrade to 2D-X‘ 2D fighting game of the year; it was an experience. If you’ve already shelled out the cash for Street Fighter IV and feel that this addition is Capcom’s excuse to make you double dip, I’d...

Longtime Sonic fans who have been consistently abused  by the hedgehog’s post 16-bit adventures have flocked to Project Needlemouse as the series’ savior.

Pulsewave: Modulation brings fresh chiptunes to NYC

on Sun, Jan 10, 2010 | By Chris Gampat

It’s that time again to party, my fellow 8-bitters. Pulsewave: Modulation will be going down January 11th at Le Poisson Rouge Bar in NYC. The event will be hosted by DJs Natty and C-Tor and special guest DJs Paris and outpt. $5 draft and well drinks all night, so it’s bound to be a BAMF time.

CES 2010: The best booth babes

You can’t have a technology show without booth babes. It simply can not happen. E3 tried to class up the joint by kicking the ladies to the curb in 2007, but nothing enrages fanboys more than being denied the opportunity to drool over unattainable women. This year’s Consumer Electronics Show played to its nerdtastic audience by featuring many a pretty lady, and...

CES 2010: Hands-On with Mega Man 10

on Sun, Jan 10, 2010 | By Jeffrey L. Wilson

CES 2010, as mentioned in our preview post, proved to be a very solid showcase for  video game related news. Although there were pockets of games and accessories on the LVCC’s floor, a significant (and impressive) chunk of it was located inside of Capcom’s Planet Hollywood suite. There the company allowed me to get down and dirty with a number of 2D games, including ...

on Sun, Jan 10, 2010 | By Tim Torres

Atlus doesn’t know when to quit. Not satisfied spoiling us with hardcore ridiculousness like Demon’s Souls and tons upon tons of Shin Megami Tensei games, they deem Feb. 23 the time to bestow Metal Slug XX for PSP upon us. A port of Metal Slug 7 for DS, Metal Slug XX (pronounced “double-ex”) heralds the return of multi-player through the PSP’s...

Review: 8-bit Left 4 Dead – A fun diversion

8-bit Left 4 Dead
on Fri, Jan 8, 2010 | By Chris Gampat

The much talked about 8-Bit version of Left 4 Dead has arrived, and after some quality time with it I can tell you that this is the most addicting game I’ve ever epic failed in. It’s a brutally tough game even in the easier difficulty, and it takes a little bit of time to get accustomed to the controls. The music, however, is awesome. While you may not be able...

Another Christmas may have come and gone, but that doesn’t mean that the spirit of giving must come to an end as well. Treat the geek in you life (be it a best bud, relative, or yourself) to an 8-bit pendant, which will recall the days of yore when or biggest life disappoint was discovering that the princess was in another castle. Handcrafted by Nicholas D’Amario,...

It’s been a hot minute since we’ve first leased of Chrono Twins DX, a time hopping action title that’s headed to Wii Ware on Januray 11, but the trailer is finally here to dazzle you with its temporal gimmick. The clip showcases how events from the present affect the past…or is  it how events from the present are affected by the future? Whoa. My initial...
