Uber recently posted a livestream about the upcoming Planetary Annihilation. They talk about the game and show it off if you were interested in how it was shaping up!


To celebrate 25 years of Mega Man, Platinumfungi built a special tricked out backlit NES with the Blue Bombers theme.


Gamestop won't take any more PS2 trade-ins after June 1st. My only question is why they take them now, surely the used market on the PS2 is lessened or is it now a retro system?

Planetary Annihilation has been on my radar since the Kickstarter campaign. It just looks like so much fun, and I love that stylized art. Can't wait!

That NES looks pretty sick, too. I've been jonesing for classic Nintendo games lately, but only have access on the Wii, at the moment. Just isn't the same without that old controller in your hands, after blowing on the cartridge to get the game to load.

NES cart blowing, good thing digital gets around that :D

I tossed in a about $10 for a nice USB gamepad a while ago from Gamestop. I am just kind of allergic to rebuying games on the latest platform. I keep my old carts though, never get rid of that stuff. Always want the gold Zelda cart in my collection as well as the Power Glove.

The Power Glove, is so bad...

I never had a Power Glove, but always thought it was pretty cool. I think the coolest thing I had, controller-wise, was the NES Advantage, but it's long gone now, along with all of that collected gaming history.

NES Advantage wasn't too bad. Joytick style controller that worked pretty well. I think I played it a few times as a kid, but always loved it in Ghostbusters 2 :D
