It’s another episode of It Is What It Is, and B.C. is talking all sorts of topics, so come give a listen to this holiday edition of the show!
The Metroid franchise has enjoyed a long life filled with amazing games. Prime, Echoes, Zero Missions, Other M, and so on are the more recent generations’ offerings, but these all pay tribute and merely build upon one of the most engaging games in the series; Super Metroid. Why does this one stand out above all the others? I'm breaking it down for you today.
I always knew that one day, I would write a tribute to my favorite game of all time in the form of an article. There’s no better time, as it’s Nintendo Exclusives month in Gamerlinx town and I’m pulling in, parking my rhino, and telling you why I think Donkey Kong Country 2 was one of the greatest Nintendo exclusives to grace this earth.
As an old-school JRPG fan, and a particular fan of the Super Nintendo, I often get asked by interested friends what my favourite SNES game of all time is. In a field populated by so many exceptional titles, and at a time when Japanese development styles weren’t compromised by a financial need to appease western tastes, that’s a hard decision to make. Keeping to this genre, and even in the shadows of the exceptional Final Fantasy 6 and Chrono Trigger, I conclude that it would have to be Enix’s Terranigma.
Not all boss battles have the be serious and sinister, or make you want to pull your hair out. Sometimes the most memorable fights we have in a game are the goofy ones, which remind us that games are supposed to be about having fun. Here we highlight some of our favourite retro boss battles with a more humorous and bizarre approach.
In some cases, a soundtrack can take a game from being good to great. That's not only the case with modern games either, as the days of yore were able to provide memorable tunes that continue to stick with gamers today. We're digging into the past to un-earth and re-experience five SNES musical masterpieces that stand out from the crowd.
