We used to look at Nintendo's monthly Virtual Console lineup with a mixture of anticipation (because we'd see at least a few games each month that seemed destined for our own Virtual Console) and dread (because it was a big list of Japanese game titles to translate). The May lineup inspires neither ...

If you thought the DS was a less-than-ideal platform for an original Metal Slug, you're really going to be surprised with this one. SNK Playmore has released one of its cartoony run-and-guns for the iPhone and iPod Touch. Metal Slug Touch is adapted to the platform in some unexpected ways: for examp...

If there were a show called Arcade Babies in which miniaturized versions of popular arcade games hung out in a nursery and had adventures, modder Pocket_lucho's Neo Geo Pocket Arcade would easily get the lead role.

We'd break out our special Kunio-shaped cake pans and observe the traditional Kunio We...
