The Neo Geo was always regarded as a rich man’s SNK machine, so the high cost is no surprise. What is surprising, however, is that the price of the original NES, once adjusted for inflation, is more costly than the PS4. No wonder the old man wouldn’t get me one back in the day. “But your hand-me-down Commodore 64 works just fine!” he’d say.
Yeah dad, but does Duck Tales look like this on the Nintendo? Hmmm!? HMMMMMM!?
Symmetrain is a cool concept — spot the missing items in a mirrored landscape as your train moves faster and faster — but in an App Store flooded with endless-runner games, does Symmetrain steam ahead of the rest?
I’ve always thought the N64 controller to be the ugly duckling of controllers, only instead of being a swan – it’s just a duck. Dip that duck in chrome, though, and bam! What a beaut. You look expensive, young birdie. Now fly! Fly into a world of fingerprints and Cheetos residue!

How long has it been since you’ve changed your desktop wallpaper? Probably too long. That stuff’s like underwear – you’ve got to keep it at least pseudo-fresh. Three months is pushing it, buddy.
Don’t be nasty. Change it up today. Here are some good candidates for a newer, fresher computer desktop. These gamer-themed nuggets were all done in a minimalistic style and created by 14 year old Patrick Waye (or dragonitearmy as he’s known on deviantART). More after the jump.
Colossatron: Massive World Threat has one of the most jarring love/hate arcs ever experienced in a game – initially impressive then diving immediately into disappointment, only to inexplicably grow on you as you fight through the letdown.
