Nintendo Games That Deserve a Second Life

Nintendo has steadily been releasing it’s classic titles since the Wii came out in 2006, and even now with current re-releases such as Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, Starfox 64, and Pokemon’s Ruby and Sapphire. It got me thinking about other games I would like to see revived onto a new-gen system.

Here’s some titles that I think deserve a second life:

 

  • Super Smash Bros Melee – Without a doubt the fan favorite of this entire series, I would love to see this available for purchase on the Wii U or 3DS market. I would keep game play and functionality the same, but maybe updated graphics similar to SSBB.

Gamers now never have to wait until the afterlife to join the ranks of the R.I.P.D. (Rest In Peace Department). ATLUS and Old School Games today officially announced they will partner up to develop a downloadable game for Steam, Xbox LIVE Arcade and PlayStationNetwork based on the upcoming 3D supernatural action-adventure, R.I.P.D., in theaters July 19, 2013!

Players will take up the roles of  two lawmen dispatched to the otherworld to defend and serve the living from an growing destructive array of souls who refuse to move peacefully to the other side (Does that sound familiar Supernatural fans?). The game will be a two person co-op shooter that is released this summer for $9.99 on PC and PlayStation Network, and for 800 MSP on Xbox LIVE.

Nintendo 64: Still Amazing

 

So taking a break from Borderlands 2 this weekend my friends and I took a trip down memory lane and dedicated the weekend to playing the Nintendo 64. After 24 hours straight of us playing different games and running mock tournaments I have come to the conclusion that despite the terrible controller design it is still my favorite system.

I was just thinking about Electronic Art’s (EA) and some of there old school titles that I really enjoyed playing back in the Eighties. Take a glance at some of my personal old school EA  favorites. I know some of you will remember playing these and also remember how much younger you were back then too and for others it will be a peek back  into Video Game history at some cool titles from a cool company that has been around awhile. It’s interesting looking back and seeing how far Video Games have come,I can only imagine looking  forward what incredible things are in store for us in the future of Video Games.  All links will take you to Wikipedia  for more in depth background information on EA, these games and more, I hope you will take the time to check check them out. Have fun Gaming!!!
