Have you heard of Interplay? They're the company that published titles such as Earthworm Jim, Boogerman, MDK, and Descent. Obviously they have fallen on hard times, since they announced that they're going to be selling off all of their intellectual properties. Turns out this is an all or nothing deal, so people can't just buy Earthworm Jim for example. No price has been listed, people interested have been instructed to contact Wedbush's Joe Morgan (firstname.lastname@example.org). Do you or someone you know have possibly thousands of dollars laying around? Well this is your chance!
But seriously, I'm hoping these IPs go to a worthy developer, and not languish like many IPs have in the past, like System Shock. I'd especially love to see another MDK come out.

Hello there! I have been working hard on the back-end of RotW. Part of this was updating the login system to be more secure. As a result, all previous passwords had to be dumped. If you are already registered, you should have recieved an e-mail containing a new (temporary) password. If you did not, feel free to e-mail me (address listed in my profile).

Happy 4th of July, everyone! To celebrate, here's some cool bit of retro related news. First, in the event that you don't already know this, I'll give a little background information to help you understand the context behind this story: around 25 years ago, Nintendo and Sony entered into a partnership to create a CD capable console, but those plans fell through and the thing never saw commercial release. There were, however, a number of prototypes produced. One of those prototypes has alleged

Apparently, Nintendo was seriously considering releasing a new F-Zero for the Wii U at some point. According to this, Nintendo asked the Burnout and Need for Speed developer, Criterion Games, to create a demo for a new possible F-Zero title for the Wii U. Former Criterion Games creative director, Alex War
So it looks like Nintendo WFC is still around, albeit in a limited and unofficial fashion. A group of intrepid Nintendo fans have set up a server that responds to many WFC requests, and is allowing some games to still go online. The system works by redirecting traffic from Nintendo's now defunct servers to a homebrew one set up by GitHub user Polaris, and handles matchmaking, online chat, and many

EDIT: This promotion is now over.
What a funny coincidence. The day after the Billy's Sonic Site april fools prank, Sonic CD is free for android on the amazon app store. This is a really fun game, if you like 2D platformers. A lot of Sonic fans say CD is their favorite in the whole series. For me, its in second place. This version has a Sonic 2 styled spindash, both soundtracks (US and JPN/EU), and you can even play as Tails after beating it. I highly recommend it. Again, this is the

Since the whole retro of the week thing wasn't working out, I decided to go back to the first site I created. We will now be dedicated to all Sonic content, all the time! I hope you enjoy the new/old site. Please be patient while we transition over.

Hello there, Billy here. I've been implimenting some backend features and shifting around a lot of code. The only visible result of this to you is that you can now thumbs up/down comments as well as posts. I ask that you please use this feature; if we get enough ratings, I can start adding algorithms for the most quality posts and stuff like that. Regardless, please be on the look out for errors and don't hesitate to tell me about them. Also, don't he

It doesn't matter where you preorder, right? It usually boils down to who has the best bundles, but yesterday, approximately 150 Target shoppers got a nice surprise in the form of an Xbox One! According to Kotaku, "Target had accidentally not assigned a release date," so when their shipments arrived from the manufacturer, Target did the responsible thing and sent them out.
So what did the lucky winners do? Just the obvious stuff, they attempted to sell them on eBay for ridiculous amounts, and posting unboxing videos on YouTube, which is a topic for another day--seriously, who cares about that? But Microsoft, in an unusually swift display of paying attention to its consumers, forced the YouTube videos to be taken down, and even banned at least one early adopter from Xbox Live.
All in all, it's a pretty hilarous story, from the company that's brought us one PR disaster after another, and I can't wait to see how this continues to develop.

If you buy a lot of video games from Nintendo, and you're not taking part in Club Nintendo, you're wrong. The service offers a few great prizes, and goodies that aren't available anywhere else, and costs nothing more than the games you're already buying. One of the items Japanese Platinum members are lucky enough to find this year is a download for Advance Wars; Days of Ruin, which was unreleased in Japan.
Why does this matter to us? It probably doesn't. It's just interesting that a DS game has been converted to an eShop game after it went unreleased. Could we soon see DS games added to the Virtual Console? Probably not, but it's definitely something that could have a market.
