  • Great fun to be had with retro gaming | Retro Stuff
    gaming By Alan on April 29th 2013 There are quite a few games that most people have forgotten about but if you got the chance to play them then you would probably be all over them These are the great retro games that have been largely forgotten and are now so old that they have once again become iconic The following is a brief review of some of the best retro games out there on the market that have earned enough retro points to deserve a second play if you can get your hands on a station and the game First up on the list is Psychonauts which is a Double Fine Productions game that was designed by LucasArts developer Tim Schafer As you might guess the third platform game is quite fun as players get the chance to play Raz a character that can read other people s minds and desperately wants to be a Psychonaut The plot is twisty and intriguing and although it was not a commercial success was certainly a cult success The next game on the list is Tekken which was the ultimate 3D fighting game Most often played at the video arcade the King of Iron Fist Tournament is one that every young boy spent quarter after quarter trying to win It is also the first game to introduce combination moves that led to much more sophisticated attacks Of course when you are talking about iconic video games it is hard to forget the ever popular SimCity in which players design a city that continues to evolve and have new demands forced upon it Heavily distributed the classic game is still a favourite among many hardcore gamers The fact that it has been re released in several versions for several different platforms has also

  • New version of Donkey Kong revealed | Retro Stuff
    that one day his studio might consider producing another Metroid game however they chose this year to go with Donkey Kong The newest version of Donkey Kong subtitled Tropical Freeze was unveiled for the first time at the 2013 E3 conference Kelbaugh explained that the company felt that they had unfinished business that they could still turn into a Donkey Kong game and that they wanted to focus on that because there was no way that they had the bandwidth in order to work on two major gaming titles at the same time In an interview that Kelbaugh gave with IGN he carefully picked his words so as not to appear to favour one game over the other Instead he simply explained that when they completed DK they still had some great ideas for where they could move forward and given the great manoeuvrability of the Wii U they felt that it was the time to continue with DK He reiterated that Retro Studios loves Metroid and that they have every intention of one day working on creating another Metroid but for the time being they have had a great time working on creating a new DK game The retro Metroid game is pretty much a cult favorite with many hardcore gamers in love with the simple screens of the original game However the numbers speak for themselves as Metroid 3 sold 500 000 copies while Donkey Kong Country Returns was able to sell a whopping five million copies Therefore if Retro was only going to bring back one retro gaming title for the Nintendo Wii it is pretty clear why they made the choice they did because the potential gaming market and client base or Donkey Kong remains much larger Related posts Retro gaming is still very much in
