Retro Is Cool

No media exists in a vacuum, and rarely is that as true as it is in the world of video games. Reaching its tendrils out deep into the surrounding entertainment arena, you'd be hard-pressed to find any form of recreation which didn't inform gaming in some way.

What we want to look at, though, is how other forms of gaming have influenced video games throughout the years, starting with what might be the most immediately obvious example in the modern age.

Loot boxes, as they currently exist, draw their inspiration directly from the world of online casinos. Take a look at something like the online jackpots listed by NetEnt Casino, for example. Exploring this recently redesigned website, you might detect inspiration from the likes of online storefronts such as Steam. Information is king here, with a streamlined approach making it much easier for users.

The part we really want to focus on here comes from the basic idea of slot...
Do you have a lot of video games on your shelf? If you do not play them anymore, it is always possible to sell your video games and get a bit of extra money for other forms of entertainment.

Next time when you are tidying up your house or move to a new place of living, do not throw away your old games because they hold some value. Do not think that video games have to be up-to-date to be worth interesting to potential customers. You will be surprised to discover that retro video games can bring you much more cash compared to brand new ones. If you are a lucky owner of “Atari” or “Commodore 64” games, this is an absolute lottery. The situation is even better if you still have the gaming console, all functioning joysticks, and controllers. In the following post, you will discover where to sell retro games and how much money you can get for them.

The Switch is by far the hottest video game console on the planet right now, and that’s not going to change for the foreseeable future.

The Switch has sold over 21 Million, and the SNES Mini over 10 Million, so portable and retro is in, but Nintendo's Mini even tho its small, is not portable, and the Switch can only play NES games, well no longer do you have to worry, As Hyperkin has you covered!

It's almost like people miss playing classic Nintendo games.

Recently, we reported that the Nintendo Switch has outsold the 'GameCube' and has past the 21 million mark, but what is more amazing is that during the same time period the Classic Mini's from Nintendo have sold over 10 million units and during half that time they were sold-out because they were 'limited edition' runs by big 'N' and now with them re-introducing both models this holiday season and lower the price of NES Classic to $59.99, we are sure going to see alot more units sold to be unwrap over the holidays. :)
Metal Gear Solid, Cool Boarders 2, Twisted Metal, Grand Theft Auto, Resident Evil Director’s Cut, Rayman and more legendary games will come pre-loaded on PS Classic.

Just last month, Sony shocked the retro world, by announcing their entry into the new era of 'Classic Mini's consoles' that Nintendo started with their hugely popular NES and then even more popular follow-up SNES Classic Mini, but with the PlayStation Classic which is launching in the North American markets on December 3rd, we didn't know until today the full classic lineup of the 20 games pre-loaded on it.
SEGA’s Naoki Horii stated that the Nintendo Switch was close to successfully running Dreamcast titles via emulation.

In a recent interview by 'Sega Ages' and published on 'Famitsu', it seems Sega is infact working on an 'emulator' for running Dreamcast games on the Switch console, instead of using the normal re-mastering process for games using existing 'source code', they are going instead for the 'emulator' route for their Dreamcast library.
