The Aging of the NES Generation

Video games have been around as we know them for close to four decades. In that period of time, we have watched the world of games transform more quickly than any other medium that has preceded it. We went from arcades to the home, 2D to 3D, buttons to touch screen, and tactile to motion control. Game design has rapidly evolved from simply shooting pixelated objects for the high score to puzzle solving and emotionally charged decision making, but one thing that never seems to change is the appeal of nostalgia. Gaming is old enough now that we have several generations of people who have proudly used either a joystick, paddle, d-Pad, analog stick, or motion controller, and it seems that every one of them is determined to recapture their childhood memories in a bottle. And publishers, it seems, are more than willing to cash in. Read More

Final Fantasy VIII is #1 in December PSN Sales

Just because Final Fantasy XIII is still a month and a half away doesn't mean Square Enix's flagship series ain't already enjoying success. After hitting the North American PlayStation Store on December 17, Final Fantasy VIII (that's "8," don't let the three I's throw you for a loop) quickly became the most popular game on the scene. Patrick Seybold, Senior Director of Corporate Communications & Social Media for SCEA, said that this past December saw the highest revenue month to date for PSN, a 155% increase from one year ago. Final Fantasy VIII wasn't the only PSOne classic to sell like whoa, however. Check out the top ten PSN purchases for December below. 1. Final Fantasy VIII (PS3/PSP) 2. PixelJunk Shooter 3.

Nintendo Download - 11/09/09 - Load Up on Excitebike Action, Musical Plankton and More

At long last, it's the WiiWare moment you've all been waiting for... unless the moment you were waiting for is Castlevania, that is. Nay, but as promised, Excitebike: World Rally is now available for download on WiiWare for 1,000 Wii Points. There's even more oldschool fun with Frogger Returns, which costs only half of what Excitebike does, and you can round out an even twenty bucks by getting Dragon Master Spell Caster from Stickmen Studios for another 500 Wii Points. DSiWare has an abundance of titles as well, though five of them are Electroplankton titles, each 200 DSi Points. If you want something with a bigger bang, however, Hudson has you covered with the eight-player Bomberman Blitz for 500 Wii Points. Finally, Virtual Console sees two new releases in the form of Cybernoid for the Commodore 64 and the well-renowned Wonder Boy III: The Dragon's Trap for the SEGA Master System, each commanding 500 Wii Points. For more info on each of today's 11 titles, check out the press release after the cut. Read More

Random Video of the Day: Grand Theft Auto vs. Frogger

Here's a surprise: another mashup video from Dane Boe, this time featuring Grand Theft Auto IV and Frogger. I can already see how this wouldn't end well...

And in hindsight, I should have realized that's not how these things work. Read More
