Why Symphony of the Night Is Not True Castlevania

Metroidvania. Even the most casual of game enthusiasts have heard the term. Metroidvania is an action-adventure sub-genre popularized across multiple platforms after the 1997 release of Castlevania: Symphony of the Night. By abandoning the earlier level-to-level action adventure elements established...

My classic gaming setup

My classic-gaming setup. The monitor is a 20” PVM with RGB SCART, and behind it is an 8-port SCART switch. On top is a DVD/VCR combo. On top of that is an Atari 2600. In front of the monitor is an RGB modified Atari 800XL. All the way to the left is an Atari Mega STE. Finally, the systems to the mon...

That wasn't it though, as I'd request for my password or a new one to be sent to my e-mail and it never arrived. I didn't change e-mail addresses either, plus I check my spam folder every day and it wasn't there either. I tried signing up for a new account under "Darryl B.2" or something ...

Re: Data East Arcade Classics Nintendo Wii Trailer - Debut Trail

Looks like we may have doubled or tripled our investment in this little number. I see on Ebay and Amazon it is selling for over $50 nowadays. Can't say I play it often, but nice to have this gem in my collection. Considering just how cheap the vast majority of Wii games are, it's nice to know we ha...

Got my Nintendo Switch at midnight!

I missed out on the pre-order, but found out that my local Best Buy was doing a midnight opening for the Switch. So I got there at 9:00 PM, right from work still in uniform. There were about 80-100 people in front of me on line, so I was worried that I may not get one. At around 10:00, two guys star...

Don't let the fanzine's title fool you though. Although Phil's true love at the time was the Lynx, he covered various At...

I recently got my hands on another Colorvision, this time from France. I just made the first known Colorvision video. Enjoy!
