Improving Your Game: 3 Reasons No Arcade Fighting Game Lover Should Be Without An Arcade Stick

var noskimwords = 'true'; Improving Your Game: 3 Reasons No Arcade Fighting Game Lover Should Be Without An Arcade Stick Gamepads are typically the preferred controller when playing video games. However, taking a look at the benefits of opting for an arcade stick, also known as a fight stick, it makes sense why one would want to make a switch. Arcade sticks are easier to hold and press buttons. One reason arcade sticks are better than their gamepad counterparts is that you have more control over buttons as they are all on one flat surface. Because of this flat surface, sticks can be placed on a lap, floor, or table during gameplay. Unlike gamepads, one doesn’t have to worry about holding the controller in place, making arcade sticks easier on the arms. Not being required ...

Video Games by the Numbers

  Like many of my readers, I have been playing games for over 3 decades now. Some of my fondest childhood memories are of hours spent playing games like Super Mario Kart and Donkey Kong Country on my SNES with my friends, or time spent immersing in the stories of RPG classics back in the 16 and 32 bit era such as Lunar on the Sega CD or Zelda on the SNES and N64. Video games have a long history and continue to entertain new generations of kids who are growing up gaming, just like they did back in the 80s and 90s. To celebrate video games, the team at The Monitor Monitor has put together this infographic of consoles, the number of games produced for each console, and sales numbers for the top selling games on each console. Please note that the graphic is sorted by manufactu

Countdown to Black Friday with New Deals Every Day on Amazon

Amazon just launched their Black Friday Pre-sale event. You can check back every day for new items at http://amazon.com/Black-Friday/... Already they are offering up some pretty sweet deals for geeks and gamers. I recommend bookmarking and checking back as often as possible. I'm hoping for a PS4 Bundle or Console to go on sale. I have enough already to purchase, but since it is that time of year, saving some money never hurts, and I've waited this long already to get myself the newest consoles, so might as well hang in there a few more weeks and see what happens! Last year, amazon had amazing black friday and cyber monday exclusive gaming bundles for all three major game systems including Xbone, PS4, and WiiU. This year the savings should be even greater since the technology continue

Christmas Nights – Sega Saturn Retro Game Review – Special Limited Edition Disc

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas - at least in the Retro Sega Saturn Special Disc called Christmas Nights. I received this game as a kid when I purchased a gaming magazine (I can't remember which magazine now though as this was back in the 90s). But if you didn't grow up in the 90s, you can still play Christmas Nights after beating the HD Remastered Nights into Dreams at least one time. Christmas Nights is a special game that expands on the great gameplay of Nights into Dreams. Players can play as either Claris or Elliot and explore a Christmas themed rendition of the first level of Claris' Spring Valley dream, including the battle with Gillwing at the end of the level. Although the game is short, it has high replay value because you earn presents which will unlock additional

Konami NOT stopping development of AAA titles for Console or PC

Did I call this one or what? Last week, rumors abounded that Konami was exiting the gaming market once again (this rumor ALREADY happened earlier this year). Can we finally put this rumor to bed now please? As I wrote in my article here: Konami Reportedly Stops Making Games, Internet Goes Crazy Over Rumors I advised gamers to not get too upset, and boy was I right. Konami ONCE AGAIN denied rumors that they are exiting the console and pc marketplace.

Title: Katamari Damacy Genre: Platform / Puzzle Platform: PS2, Xbox 360 Publisher: Namco Release Date: September 21, 2004 Language: English (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); Geeky Factor:  Sweetie Factor:  Overall: 53/70 76% C  “Good Game For Girls” Story: 2/10 The story in Katamari is really silly and crazy (as is much of the game itself).
