News and… Banking on Your SNES

After taking in this amazing promotional video for TranDirect Holding’s home banking software running on an SNES we didn’t know what to make of it.

News and… The Lego Return of Bob-omb Battlefield

You have to understand that anything around the intro areas of Super Mario 64 still provokes a physical reaction from me.

Gaming history buffs will remember the ironic fact that Nintendo helped create one of its greatest adversaries, the PlayStation. Thanks to the Sony Playstation Lore in a Minute video, I found another bit of irony that rubs a bit more salt into some Nintendo scars. Namely that when Nintendo suddenly dropped Sony from its potential disc… Continue reading
