Retro Gaming News 081: ISD SMB Util

"This is the most amazing SMB editor yet. Not only does it have full editing capabilities, it has an emulator built in so you can test the game from the exact point you’re editing."



Retro Gaming News 080: Challenge!

"A fully functional Starter and Rival Editor for Pokémon Red, Blue and Yellow, that correctly edits the game’s script so as not to glitch battles further in the game and give strange movements to your rival in Oak’s lab. The tool also allows complete editing of your Rival’s team throughout the game.

Updated in Version 1.1, for Pokémon Yellow, the ability to edit fully the battle Oak has with the wild Pokémon and which Pokémon will follow you during the game."



Retro Gaming News 079: MartEdit GB

"This tool will edit the items sold in all the PokéMarts in Red, Blue and Yellow ROMs. As promised, after the removal of the Game Corner Prize editor from this tool, I have included something else that I think you’ll all find useful under the ‘Extras’ menu!

Retro Game of the Week 096:TMNT 3 : The Manhattan Project (NES)

Hello shell brains! This week we have a real treat for ya. The Turtles are back in their third entry through the nostalgic 8-bit world. TMNT 3: The Manhattan Project took the great beat 'em up concept of TMNT 2 and made it even better. With each turtle holding their own unique skill, bigger levels, better sound, and tougher bad guys this entry is surely to be remembered. Lets take a look!

Ads From The Past 192: Batman Return of the Joker (NES)

Retro Gaming News 078: Super Mario Bros HF 2


This is the second hack from HF Games, and the most important thing we wanted to accomplish was playability. The difficulty was made to be very comparable to the original Super Mario Bros, and this is a game you can pick up and play without needing to be a master of Super Mario Bros.

The hack is a complete level hack, with a few minor graphic modifications.

If you’d like, you can play the game online before you decide to download the hack! Just check out the website: where through the magic of technology, you can play both the original hack and our sequel online!

Thanks for looking, and I hope you enjoy the hack!"

Happy Black Friday and hope you had a good weekend! Go get those sales!


Black Friday Madness!

So I decided to go to the Black Friday sales and found nothing but madness. I did took a couple of photos as you can see and ended up finding a bargain after all ^_^

Me and my brother decided to hit the shops although we left a little late, we did managed to find gold at Hhgreg ^_^

As we got in, we both ran off to what we were supposed to get. He wanted a tablet and I wanted a TV so I ran to the TV section and picked up a 40" sexyness! Oh man I was so happy!
The line took almost two hours for some reason....OMG There were only ten people ahead of me and somehow each one took forever especially this family of bastards who kept trying their maxed out credit cards until finally one went through. I mean really, if you don't have the cash then get the fuck out of here! Stupid morons! Took them like half an hour to check out.

Totally worth it!!! AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!! I'm one happy mad gamer!! har har har! Hope all of you had a great Black Friday! I sure did! Oh yeah, not in the picture is a portable camera that records video and what not. Totally awesome!!! Very handy for certain missions! A new gadget in my hands!!

Retro Game of the Week 095: Contra (NES)

For this week's pick we have a game that shouldn't need any introduction. Contra is probably one of the most amazing games ever created. Its replay value is phenomenal especially when you play with a friend. The game itself has a very interesting story behind it especially when we talk about the European release Probotector. The game even has a very famous code named after the company who released it. There is a lot more interesting facts about this game but lets look at it from the different fields we set up for it.

Ads From The past 191: Populous (SNES)

It's about time for another ads from the past! This one is pretty kewl nonetheless although the game is just average by many who have played it. Nevertheless, it's here to stay! Enjoy!


Emulation News 210: Updates for 11-22-11

A very busy day with emulation news! Lots of new Android emulators and then some! Check them all out!

3DS Pic of the Week 009: Harry Potter Butterbeer!

So for this week's pick we have Butterbeer! I had to get the cup for it as well! A nice souvenir I took home with me from the trip to Universal Studios. As usual, 3DS owners should click the 3DS link for the full experience. I took this pic while I was in one of the shoppes in the Harry Potter island.


Retro Gaming News 077: The World Ends With You fandub now available!

"Three years ago, a group of fans, under the name of TWEWYTeam released a Spanish translation for The World Ends With You, for the Nintendo DS. It successfully adapted all the texts and a 90% of the graphics into Spanish.

But that translation had something special: It was the first time in Spain that someone romhacked a dubbing into a game. At that point, only the FMVs were dubbed.

Now, three years later, some of the members of TWEWYTeam, along with plenty of new people and with over sixteen voice actors, released The World Ends With You Versión en Castellano (Spanish Edition) 2.0.

This new version changes quite a lot of the texts, improving many of the lines of the game; adds all the missing graphics that were left untranslated before; but the best part is that now the in game lines are completely dubbed with professional quality, thanks to some of the perpetrators of the Time Crisis dub project.

As usual, pictures won’t show the quality of the work, so here’s a sample of the lines of each character."
