This Retro-Styled Shovel Knight 'VHS' Guide is a Thing of Beauty

Entertaining and helpful

Shovel Knight isn't just a terrific game, but part of its appeal is its ability to prompt nostalgia for the 8-bit era. Its visuals are too sharp and detailed to actually be a game on the NES, yet it represents how we remember that era — with retro rose-tinted eyeballs, in other words. It's that combination of excellent...
