Windows 10 Review for Dummies

After all these years, and growing up with Windows 3.1, I have seen an entire evolution of computers and software. Touch screens and large resolutions were a pipe dream just 15 years ago. Now it's the norm. Going from a Packard Bell (yes, before HP) that couldn't run 3D Ultra Mini...


New SNES Multi-Cart Game Coming Soon: Why?

Posted on Thursday, August 23 @ 09:27:08 PST by

No, it's not Nightmare Busters—another new SNES game project we covered this year. Yet another developer, RetroQuestGames, has come up with the brilliant idea of releasing a game, or in this case multiple games on one cart, for a console that's been dead for well over a decade.

I heard about this from one of the developers who reached out to me via email, telling me it will release "complete in box like old times". They also sent over the promo video at the top. It's got dubstep, so it must be cool. Right?

I just don't get it.

I know Nightmare Busters and the devs received a decent amount of free press and buzz being the only people ballsy enough to release a game on a such an old platform. It's not a good idea. How many of you still have an SNES laying around?

Okay, I guess there's a decent amount of you. But remember, we're not the norm, here. Most people don't have an SNES still, so their market is extremely limited.

Now let me ask you this: How many of you are willing to shell out upwards of $60 for a SNES game right now? Yeah... didn't think so. No price was mentioned or confirmed for whatever this multi-cart game ends up being called, but $60 plus $8 shipping is the going rate for Nightmare Busters, which we assume to be a standard rate in producing these ancient game catridges.

While it sounds cool and all—even nostalgic—releasing a game on the SNES now-a-days is a bad idea, and they should feel bad. They're gonna have a bad time. But hey, watch the video, it's got dubstep—and we all know how much that helps sell video games.

On one hand, I don't want to knock creativity or risk-taking. On the other hand, I can't stand to see really poor business decisions.

Tell GR: If you still have an SNES, will you buy this?
