What?! Secret of Mana 2 English SNES cart on eBay?

By Spencer . February 20, 2007 . 6:48pm

  Seiken Densetsu 3 (aka Secret of Mana 2) never saw the light of day in the USA even though it is arguably the best game in the Mana series. Even though Squaresoft overlooked the title there were rumors of a partially localized beta that never surfaced. So it’s a little suspicious that a cartridge […]

StarFox Voyeur

By Konstantinos . February 2, 2007 . 9:06am

Well, to be honest, it’s more of a Starfox Object Viewer, but you have to admit that Voyeur does sound rather catchy. So, dear Nintendo obsessed retro-heads, let’s just forget the naming issue, as all you have to actually do is click on this lovely little link and you’ll be transported to a fantastic 3D […]

By Spencer . January 25, 2007 . 12:09pm

Believe it not the Super Nintendo has a special system designed for military training. A cartridge known as a Multipurpose Arcade Combat Simulator (MACS) is on eBay. This rare game is a light gun game made specifically for US Army boot camps and it doesn’t use the Super Scope. It requires a modified M-16 to […]

Sweet Street Fighter II sound drops

By Spencer . January 19, 2007 . 9:05am

  I love playing around with sound drops. The little toys provide hours of entertainment like playing the 1up sound at a bar when someone takes a shot then playing the game over sound when they trip and fall on the floor. A new batch of sound drops have sound bytes from Street Fighter II. […]

What if Mario had lasers in Super Mario World?

By Spencer . January 11, 2007 . 9:19am

This video shows an obviously fake “secret” area where you can get the ultra powerful laser suit Mario. While this trick can’t be replicated how would the Super Mario World or Super Mario Galaxy be a different game if Mario had a gun? Could it make gameplay better or would it follow in the footsteps […]

Mario Picross makes a return on the Wii Virtual Console

By Spencer . December 22, 2006 . 8:56am

  The Game Boy game, Mario’s Picross, wasn’t a huge hit in North America, but it was popular enough for a Super Famicom sequel to come out in Japan. Mario’s Picross was a mix of minesweeper and a paint by number puzzle game. You start with a blank board and you fill in squares to […]

Street Fighter II on the virtual console? Already happened

By Spencer . December 13, 2006 . 8:29am

  The ESRB revealed that they rated Street Fighter II: The World Warrior with a T rating yesterday, which led to speculation that Capcom’s arcade classic was coming to the Wii. It’s not too surprising since Street Fighter II was one of the launch titles in Japan’s virtual console line up. It was one of […]

Play Link to the Past’s Master Quest

By Spencer . November 29, 2006 . 10:52am

The ultimate Easter Egg in the first Zelda was the hidden Master Quest, a harder version of the game with a new layout. When the Gamecube got a re-release of the Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time it came with a bonus, the Ocarina of Time Master Quest. While Nintendo hasn’t made an official Master […]

Hidden song in many Nintendo titles

By Spencer . October 16, 2006 . 2:33pm

Composer Kazumi Totaka worked on composing the score of first party Nintendo games like Mario Paint and the Animal Crossing series. What do the games he worked on have in common? A single hidden melody. If you go up to K.K. Slider in Animal Crossing you can get the song to play in your house […]

GamePro TV Episode 7 – “Sip and Puff” Edition

By Nicholas . September 22, 2006 . 1:10pm

This is it. After retrieving my old VHS tape of GamePro TV episodes from cardboard box exile and uploading its encoded treasures to the Internet for the world to witness once again, the inevitable has occurred. The tape can fast-forward no further. There are no more episodes of GamePro TV to present.   All good […]

Retro Super Nintendo commercial tells gamers to Play it Loud

By Spencer . September 15, 2006 . 1:52pm

Video games might be mainstream now, but back in the nineties Nintendo tried hard to change the image of gamers with “Play it Loud” commercials. Overtime Comedy dug up one of the seizure inducing ad spots that flashes colors, skaters, clips of Mega Man X and awkward quotes like “Fight Earwax.” Fight Earwax as a […]
