A new meaning for 'secure digital'
Japanese YouTuber HikakinTV has gotten his hands on the shiny new Switch OLED and has already issued an unboxing video that shows off the upcoming revision in the flesh.

Power in your pocket
Apple has just announced its shiny new fondle-slabs for 2021, and amid the raft of yearly oh-so-slight improvements, larger battery capacity is one of the big enhancements across the entire iPhone 13 range.

Also worked on Streets of Rage and Shining Force artwork
Mick McGinty, the man behind the iconic SNES Street Fighter II cover artwork, has died. McGinty was an immensely talented artist, as is evidenced by the impressive collection of work on his personal site, but for gamers of the '90s, his output will be almost synonymous with video game covers...
We go hands-on with the Marseille mClassic
The debate about the existence of a 'Switch Pro' rages on, with reports suggesting it would be announced this year seemingly being disproven by the arrival of the more modest Switch OLED Model. However, the promise of 4K gaming has clearly struck a chord with the general public, and in an effort to fill the
This week, the Nintendo GameCube turns 20. This eye-catching system may have struggled against the incredible might of the PlayStation 2, but few would argue that Sony's machine was more attractive on a purely physical level. The boxy GameCube, complete with its unusual travel handle, is a true design icon and its appealing aesthetics are...
We've seen plenty of cool retro mods over the years, but this latest effort from Game Boy Custom really stands out – mainly because it's fusing together a Game Boy Color with a Game Boy Advance and the internals of a Nintendo DS. Still with us? Good. The Aussie modder has sent a proof-of-concept prototype to our friends at Retro Dodo,...
Both 'Alwa' games are coming to Switch in a physical collection, too

Games should be available to "everyone who wants to play them"
The way we play and consume classic video games has become a hot topic of late, thanks largely to some rather shady practices being employed by collectors to boost the value of certain titles. While some people are keen to increase the value of their collection while it sits on the...
Time is the enemy
You know how it is. One minute you're a youthful, exuberant 20-something, looking forward to being unleashed into the world and making your way; forging new relationships, getting a job, perhaps renting your first home. Your whole life is ahead of you! Then – BOOM – you're suddenly past 40, the last two decades have been a blur...
Back in 2013, speedrunner DOTA_Teabag was dashing through Super Mario 64's Tick Tock Clock stage when the titular plumber suddenly shot upwards through the floor and ended up on a higher platform. This totally unexpected and previously unseen glitch quickly became the trick other speedrunners wanted to emulate, but despite a $1,000...
"He’s working on something, but we can’t say what it is"
PlatinumGames' boss Atsushi Inaba has recently been speaking to VGC (alongside Hideki Kamiya) about a wide range of topics – including Star Fox Zero and Bayonetta 3 – and another subject that has cropped up is the current work status of Takahisa Taura, the director of the Switch...

"I am shouldering debt, and we are barely getting by, treading water"
Remember that super-secret cafe / bar in Tokyo dubbed the 'Mecca of Nintendo Fans'? We reported on it way back in 2018, but it's back in the news again because the owner has been forced to open it to the general public in order to combat financial woes brought on by the ongoing...
Remember NES Remix and NES Remix 2? These two minigame-focused mash-ups took famous scenes or sections from popular NES titles and gave them a WarioWare-style spin, and both went down rather well in terms of critical response. Sadly, it seems they didn't go down well enough for Nintendo to give us more in the 'Remix' line, with the...
Support for another console also to be announced
Polymega – the all-in-one retro console capable of playing a wide range of cartridge and CD-based classic systems – has certainly taken its time coming to market. It was originally announced way back in 2017, and pre-orders opened in September 2018. However, a series of
Production of the physical edition is now on hold, though
The Paprium saga continues to be one of the most gripping stories in the world of retro gaming. Developed by WaterMelon Games – the same team behind the likeable Wii U RPG Pier Solar – side-scrolling fighter Paprium
"It’s not our decision what to say and when to say it"
Bayonetta 3 was announced back in 2017, but since then, we've seen nothing of the game – not even a new trailer. There's no solid indication of when it will be released, either, and developer PlatinumGames has been forced to assure fans several times that production is proceeding as...
Double Dragon! Final Fight! Streets of Rage!
As you'll most likely be aware, we're big fans of Hardcore Gaming 101's series of books, which so far have covered everything from Sega's arcade history to the best shmups of all time. The latest publication takes a similar approach but looks at the many excellent belt-scrolling beat 'em ups that
