My Top 5 Favourite Retro-Gaming Consoles Ever For Real

My Top 5 Favourite Retro-Gaming Consoles Ever For Real

Something came to me the other day… If the NES Classic Mini plays SNES games, is the upcoming September 28-29th release of the SNES Classic Mini literally just the Mini NES unit rebranded and rewrapped in a different plastic shell and different software? If so, would we literally be paying £30 more for 2 SNES controllers costing £1.26 each to manufacture (bearing in mind one controller came ... »

The funniest world of mario

World Of Mario

World Of Mario Back in the days of the dinosaur well 1981, some bright spark decided to make a game called Donkey Kong and in it featured a little guy that climbed platforms and occasionally wielded a hammer that equalled his own height which only makes sense in the gaming realm.

The Genius Of Codemasters

The Genius Of Codemasters

The Genius Of Codemasters If you look at the simplest of mass produced electronics and I do mean the simplest, then just take a minute to look at the board design, like myself, you may wonder ‘how the hell did they do that?’. Not to put myself down but some of us talk the talk and some of us walk the walk and guess I’m the one talking right now so enough said. Codemasters have al... »

Introducing the Retro-Engine Sigma

Introducing the Retro-Engine Sigma   Things move on, we at GG accept that. It doesn’t mean anything is out of fashion at all, it simply means there are other options. I for one, still love the original Xbox for Coinops just because it’s cheap as chips and I own 7 of them and also bought the hard-drives to upgrade them off standard up to monster arcade classic machines. There is a ... »

Mini NES A Classic Mistake?

Mini NES A Classic Mistake?

Mini NES A Classic Mistake? When Nintendo first started making cards, I’m presuming they wanted to sell as many packs as possible. Like any business that will thrive, this is just good business sense, however, one could wonder if there is anything common between the sense they showed back then and the way it is dealing with it’s products in today’s market.
