    What'll it be, stranger?

  • Random GoldenEye N64 Can Be Beaten With Just One Bullet

    Slappers only!

    Ah, GoldenEye 007. If you owned a copy of this N64 classic during your youth, you probably also have an ample supply of nostalgic memories to go alongside it, as well as a few angry ones aimed at your friends who chose to play as Oddjob. What you probably don't have, though, is the ability to say that you've completed the game firing...

Unique multi-carts of games from proper publishers, which is certainly a bold idea, and one...

    Play GBA games where they weren't meant to be - on the telly

    The Game Boy Advance was a wonderful handheld with a huge library of brilliant games, many of which still stand up today. Although they were designed for the non-backlit successor to Nintendo's all-conquering Game Boy, many of its classic titles look and feel fantastic when played on a TV...
