  • News Atari's New Console Seems To Be Part NES Classic Mini, Part Ouya

    Crowdfunded, runs "classic" and "current" content

    Atari's new Ataribox system may not have a Nintendo focus, but the company's history in the games arena warrants some mention here regardless - hence our coverage of the news that the veteran firm was re-entering the hardware arena earlier this year.

  • News Alone In The Dark is Set for Yet Another Comeback

    Will it find the light?

    Alone In The Dark on Wii, released back in 2008, won't exactly go down in the annals of history as a classic.

  • News Ultra-Rare Tengen Tetris Prototype Up For Auction

    An important relic of video game history

    Tengen Tetris is one of the rarest, if not the rarest, NES cartridges out there. It was released way back in 1989 but after only a month on the shelves, unsold copies of the game were recalled - a shame considering many felt it was the better version of the game due to its improved graphics and two-player...

  • News Rollercoaster Tycoon 3D Set For 2012

    Back on the up

    Rollercoaster Tycoon 3D has been one of those 3DS releases that has been on-again and off-again enough times to be reminiscent of a tedious long-running sitcom relationship. In February it was revealed by Atari that it was on hold, while a March update from developer n-Space stated that it would arrive in late Spring. The developer...

  • News Dan Aykroyd is Loving His Wii-based Alter-ego

    Bustin' makes him feel good, we guess

    Ghostbusters: The video game is coming to every platform imaginable pretty soon. And you know what? The Wii version is sporting a slightly different look to the 360 and PS3 editions. Of course, this occurrence is nothing new – Wii owners are used to getting their own versions of multiplatform titles (they’re usually the same as the PS2 versions, as it..
