Ads from the Past 380: Ascii Pad

By : Luis Zena
I can't really complain much about this pad as it was actually quite helpful. They also released an arcade stick for the SNES which was actually really awesome. Believe me, I have it! I can't tell if this is a girl or a boy so I'm not going to label the person as I might miss-gender them and I'm against that. 


Namco Founder Masaya Nakamura Dies at 91 Years Old

By : Luis Zena

Some sad news today. Masaya Nakamura, founder of historic Japanese games publisher Namco, has passed away at the age of 91. He was behind the success of the wonderful company which brought great classics like Pac-man and Ridge Racer. He was a big part of the company and still was to his very end. A very ingenious figure to the gaming world and a sad loss for everyone especially in the gaming community. My condolences to the Nakamura family. You will always be remembered as a legend to the gaming world. Thank you for everything!

Game-bit of the day 709: Shin Megami Tensei Digital Devil Saga (PS2)

By : Luis Zena
Here is a wonderful tough game from the Shin Megami Tensei. But really, the games are tough altogether. They are made for hardcore RPG players. I suggest you check this one out, it's actually a pretty good challenge. 


Yu-gi-oh! Card of the Week 062: United We Stand

By : Luis Zena

This is a card that's useful to this day. I can't believe people don't run it as much as before especially with all the special summons you can do. You can pendulum summon and then have five monsters just to attack and destroy everything! Hmmm... I'm getting some ideas now. 


Game-bit of the day 708: Persona 4 (PS2)

By : Luis Zena
This is my favorite RPG of all time. Persona 4 just has everything right. Music, battle, story, and replay value are all in there at a very high level. Looking at this cover alone will help me patient for Persona 5 coming this April! PERSONA! 


Game-bit of the day 707: Taito Legends 2 (PS2)

By : Luis Zena
This is a pretty awesome compilation of games. If you are looking for some arcade games of some of your classic games or games that you have never heard of from Taito, then look no further. You have a big share of games to try on here! Definitely check this one out.

Ads from the Past 379: Dracula for Sega CD

By : Luis Zena
This game has just really bad controls. The game was released of course as a bait for the movie. I can't complain about the movie though, it was quite good. Sadly, this game is quite the opposite. Definitely listen to the "Play it if you Dare" on the ad. 


Game-bit of the day 706: Ki Ki Kai Kai (FDS)

By : Luis Zena
If you have played Pocky and Rocky for the SNES then this will definitely be up your alley as it's the game series but for the Famicom Disk System. Of course, it's not as graphically enhanced as the SNES version but you get where I'm going with this! 

Game-bit of the day 705: Super Pika Land (Gameboy)

By : Luis Zena
This is a pretty cool hack of the first Super Mario Land game. The character is changed from Mario to Pikachu and bad guys as well as coins and what not have been changed. It's a very fun game and probably worth a playthrough. 


Game-bit of the day 704: Ghoul Patrol (SNES)

By : Luis Zena
This is Ghoul Patrol which is the sequel for Zombies Ate My Neighbors although the game is not as good, it's decent at least. I don't know what else to say about this game as it's really not as memorable as the first one. Nothing is! 


Game-bit of the day 703: Street Fighter EX Plus Alpha (SNES)

By : Luis Zena
This is a crazy game that's called a Hong Kong original since that's where they were reported to come from. It's a choppy version of Street Fighter that tries to mimic the EX formula but fails. It's definitely worth a collectible.

Yu-gi-oh! Card of the Week 061: Cyber Jar

By : Luis Zena
This is a pretty awesome card. Another one in the ban list but playable with GOAT. The card pretty much destroys everything that's on the field and then each duelist picks up five cards, if they're level 4 or lower monsters, they can be set or summoned. Amazing card indeed!

Ads from the Past 378: Pac-Man and Babies!

By : Luis Zena
This kid looks quite confused! I'm not sure if they took this photo while he was asking "What the hell are all these pac-mans doing here??" I would seriously have to be doing some drugs to hang out with them in a photo shoot! 


Game-bit of the day 699: Mother 1 and 2 (GBA)

By : Luis Zena
What a great combo when you can play both Mother 1 and 2 on one cartridge and best of all, it's portable. This is the games translated although Mother 2 is not translated completely which is fine by me. I'm sure you can get around through the game without a full translation especially if you've played these games before. 


Game-bit of the day 698: Pokemon Cock (Gameboy)

By : Luis Zena
This is a very interesting game that is for adults only due to the foul language. It's hilarious though, but you definitely need a dark sense of humor for some of the jokes in this game. Also, pick Mew as your starter, you'll thank me later ^_^
