Batman is one of the few DC Comics licenses that hasn’t had a bad game made in its honor. There have been a few that were dubious but still good in their own rights. That tradition appears to continue with Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate – Cell Blocks for the Nintendo 3DS and Sony Playstation Vita. […]
Remember how cool Star Fox was back in the day on the Super Nintendo? Remember how cool it was to see the series hit the Nintendo 64 with those updated graphics? While ARC Squadron: Redux may not be a title by Nintendo, ARC is quite the homage.
Contra is one of those titles that helped cement Nintendo in the psyches of many gamers of that period. Gamers knew about Contra whether they had a Nintendo Entertainment System or not. The majority of those probably played it thanks to having a friend that owned the system and game or Nintendo’s genius level at […]
Welcome back friends! I hope today to not only to scratch your itch for retro gaming but, to also show you why the Nvidia Shield is one of the perfect platforms to scratch that itch. I will be listing which emulators work with the Nvidia Shield and what Frame Per Second speeds most games run […]
Carl Williams recently came to me to give me an opportunity to write for Gaming on Batteries, in the form of Codemon coverage. After speaking with Raul Portales through e-mails, and deciding an interview was the best way to present Codemon to our readers, I drafted several questions I’d hoped he hadn’t answered one hundred […]

It takes clout, it takes deep pockets and exclusive titles to even make a dent in the armor that the Game Boy built.
Anyone that was a gamer from the early 80′s onward probably remembers when Tetris was released on the original Game Boy (the pea salad green screen version). Tetris was THE first portable selling game ever- thanks to Nintendo smartly packaging the game with the system. Yes, back then when you bought a system you got […]
Tetris, the game that probably is the biggest reason, at least entertainment wise, for the Soviet Union to be kept running as long as it was able to (Alexey Pajitnov, creator of Tetris, was not the recipient of the royalties earned from the phenomenal sales- the Soviet government was). No matter though as a few […]
Retro video gamers that have been playing for awhile will undoubtedly acquire a large number of titles across many platforms. While the Apps we are featuring here don’t cover ALL possible retro platforms, they do cover a good breadth of the more popular, and smaller (read- easier to complete), platforms.
Anyone that remembers the classic Game and Watch title “Fire” by Nintendo (back before they released the original Nintendo Entertainment System) will feel the nostalgia strings being pulled on when they check out Ding Dang Fire Fighters for iOS and Android.
Johnny Impossible – 2D Side Scrolling Stealth Action with Hand Drawn Graphics Coming to Nintendo 3DS
2D side scrolling action/stealth titles are hard to come by nowadays. Portable gamers have been able to enjoy several titles in this genre though, way back on the Game Boy Advance and the Splinter Cell games but nothing newer really has come along. UFO Interactive see this hole in the gaming universe and are working […]
Okay, kart racing games used to be THE thin in gaming, that should date me pretty well for the readers, but in recent years, they have kind of dropped off the radar for most developers. We had greats like Mario Kart (which still lives on with every new Nintendo system), Crash Team Racing and many […]
