Reddit/YouTuber Uncovers Retro Console Prototype for SNES CD

Often times, when you write about retro video games, you write about something that everyone knows about. Your subject material has already been completely covered by other sources from top to bottom. It’s not often that I get the pleasure of writing about a completely unknown retro console.

Transformation of Wrestling Video Games Pt. 3: 5th Generation

Fifth generation consoles refer to the 32-bit and 64-bit gaming systems such as the Nintendo 64, PlayStation 1, and other handheld devices. It’s also known as the 3D era.

Cigars, Zelda Bling & More

The Original Duck Hunt

Press Kits

In my mind, with the release of the Playstation 1 came the birth of the press kit. There isn’t a clear definition of what a press kit is, but most collectors agree that it should at least contain a (promo) copy of the game. These kits are sent to journalists and reviewers to present their […]

Surprised I missed this until now.

When you are brought face-to-face with an Assassin Case for the […]
