  • News Fan-Made Zelda MMO in Early Stages of Development

    Zelda World to offer what Nintendo hasn't?

    Most of the games in The Legend of Zelda series stay fairly rooted in the action-RPG genre and whilst that hasn't been detrimental to its overall quality and reputation, it does leave room for those wanting a deviation from the somewhat limited offline play for some wishful thinking. It seems a group of...

  • News Cezkid Puts a New Spin on Retro Characters

    Watch your favourite 8-bit sprites do the 360

    It's always nice to see programmers recreate retro gaming in some way or another and Jay Pavlina's 'reinterpretation' of the iconic Super Mario Bros. was easily one of the coolest things we'd seen in a while.

  • News Fan-Made Fighter Video Shows Classic Characters' Violent Sides

    Nintendo, Hudson Namco and Konami all get in on the act

  • News Fatal Frame IV Fan Translation Finally Released

    Experience the Japan-only horror game in a language you understand

    Even though it may be denied an official release outside of Japan, fans of Tecmo's creepy-spooky Fatal Frame IV have taken the localization efforts into their own hands to do what Nintendon't and deliver a patch to fully translate the game into English. Yes, Virginia, it's done. All...

  • News Tuper Tario Tros: A Mario/Tetris Mash-up

    Warning: this Flash game is highly addictive

    Newgrounds user and all-round genius SwingSwing has created a fantastic Mario/Tetris mash-up named Tuper Tario Tros. Blending the platformer and puzzle genres, the game involves traversing the usual Mario landscape with your usual repertoire of jumping and, err... more jumping.

  • News Fatal Frame IV Fan Translation Almost Finished

    Get your Japanese scares in English soon

    Tecmo and Grasshopper Manufacture's scare-fest Fatal Frame IV: Mask of the Lunar Eclipse still isn't officially coming out in the West; Nintendo, holder of the title's publishing rights in North America, still doesn't want to bother, relegating it to the same territorial fate as Disaster: Day of Crisis and...
