Happy 25th Birthday to the Nintendo Game Boy


April 21, 1989 saw the release of the Nintendo Game Boy in Japan. Bundled with Tetris in the North American market, the system would go on to dominate the mobile gaming market and give Nintendo a lead that they have not lost since.

SDCC 2011: Halo Anniversary “Silent Cartographer” Demo Video

The original Halo is a memorable game for a variety of reasons, but perhaps the best example of the game and the best introduction one could be given to the universe is the level “The Silent Cartographer.”

KEEP PLAYING: Rewind – Sonic 20th Anniversary (Part 1)

As of today, it is officially Sonic the Hedgehog’s 20th birthday. No longer a speedy teen, Sonic has had his fair share of trials as he’s grown. Since June 23rd, 1991, Sonic has helped catapult Sega into fame, and also helped drag it to its current fate. Despite this, he’s survived it all, and still manages to run his way through the several potholes his franchise has gone through.

With This episode, I go through the past 20 years of Sonic with a little help from a guest. It got to be so big a project, I had to split it into two parts. Here’s Part 1, and be sure to look out for Part 2 coming shortly.
