Heroes in a Half Shell and Arcade Envy

Seeing as the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles are making their way back into the downloadable game spotlight on July 22, I am often reminded of how far consoles have come in terms of technology.

PSP Review: Sunday X Magazine (JP)

There’s just something about a crossover game that gets the blood boiling. Marvel Vs. Capcom and Capcom Vs. SNK still stand as some of the most memorable fighting experiences, Super Smash Bros. still sells like hotcakes and who could forget when the Battletoads and Double Dragons settled the score with the Shadow Boss and Dark […]
