The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past manga is coming back

A long, long time ago, when Nintendo Power was in its prime, people sometimes received awesome things thanks to it. Free copies of Dragon Warrior were one. Installments of Shotaro Ishinomori’s The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past manga were another. It was a means of experiencing the plot of the game without more »

Justice Beaver could come to the Super NES

I don’t really have any new, current gen systems. I don’t even have any systems from the last generation. My most current console is my PSP. This is because Technology Tell’s Gaming Channel only pays out in raccoon pelts and kung fu movies, so I can’t really afford to buy any current gen consoles. This more »

JumpJet Rex Preview: A big head and little arms

In a time when a Borderlands Collector’s Edition can run you $400 and licensed games, specifically Alien: Isolation and Shadow of Mordor, are some of the best on the market, we can always find solace in at least one familiar constant. We’ll never run out of 2D indie platformers. The most recent addition to that list (that I’ve more »

Game & Watch handhelds are still magic

Sorry folks, but this is a bragging kind of post. Though, if you enjoy Nintendo-related nostalgia, you probably won’t mind. See, I happened to come across actual, real, in almost-perfect condition, Game & Watch handhelds. It was one of those special moments. It happened one Sunday evening. My friends and I were out for a more »

Squirreltopia Review: Twitchy Fun

Squirreltopia Price: $3.99 System(s): PC Release Date: January 12, 2015 Publisher (Developer): Surreal Distractions (Surreal Distractions) ESRB Rating: N/A Squirrels are twitchy, tricky creatures. It’s actually quite odd that they haven’t really starred in many games until now, aside from say Acorn Assault, because they’re a natural protagonist. Especially for gut-reaction, muscle memory platformers. Cue more »

Here’s that Bud Light Pac-Man commercial

People put a lot of effort into Superbowl commercials. They know it’s the one time people will go out of their way to pay attention to every ad, and sometimes even go online to watch and rewatch what will hopefully become viral sensations. In the case of one, the company isn’t waiting until Super Bowl more »

Ryan North’s Choose Your Own Adventure Hamlet is becoming a game

If you’re one of the millions of Americans who loves avant garde adaptations of classic literature, but loathes the physical act of turning pages, your prayers have been answered.  Ryan North, author of Dinosaur Comics, the Adventure Time, and Unbeatable Squirrel Girl comic books, editor and idea man behind the Machine of Death story collections, more »

Criminal Girls immediately encourages “motivation”

You all may be going on and on about HuniePop, and maybe even Girlish Grimoire Littlewitch Romanesque, but there’s another risque game you should have on your radar. It’s Criminal Girls: Invite Only, a game many are surprised NIS America took a risk on releasing outside of Japan. We here at Technology Tell’s Gaming Channel more »

Phantom Breaker: Battle Grounds Review: Mash it out

Phantom Breaker: Battle Grounds Price: $11.99 System(s): PC (Also on 360 and Vita) Release Date: January 23, 2015 Publisher (Developer): Degica (5pb/Mages) ESRB Rating: “Everyone” for Fantasy Violence and Suggestive Themes The world needs more arcade-style beat ‘em ups. Straight up. There’s just something about dashing down some grungy city streets, by yourself or especially more »

Seasons of the Wolf pretty, but simplistic

Tales of Aravorn: Seasons of the Wolf is a game right up my alley. It’s a classic RPG combined with a visual novel game. If you like the two, it’s definitely worth taking a look. Because the foundation of the game is a visual novel, the graphics, art style, and writing of the game are more »

My favorite Pokemon game is fan-made

If you’re anything like me, you absolutely adore Pokemon. I’ve loved the game since the first time I played Blue, and I haven’t stopped loving it since. I’m not going to lie, my favorite pokemon is Butterfree, followed closely by Gardevoire. But oddly enough, my favorite version of Pokemon is actually one off the internet. more »

3DS and Wii U getting physical copies of Terraria

The news comes from a hawk-eyed NeoGAF user who recently spotted GameFly’s placeholders. Although threadbare, the Wii U and 3DS pages are certainly no accident. Both bear a release date of October 31, more »
