Those who know me well will know that I’m quite the fan of Mortal Kombat, or rather, Mortal Kombat 2 to be more specific. I was pretty excited about the announcement of Mortal Kombat Arcade Kollection for PS3 and Xbox 360.
Yesterday, Mortal Kombat Arcade Kollection finally made it’s way to the Playstation Network. This pack includes the first three Mortal Kombat games in all of their original glory.
The Xbox 360 version has been out since late August of this year, so this will no doubt excite many PS3 owners out there who appreciate this fine fighting game series :)
It has been a while, but a while worth waiting for. This is the latest from the Angry Video Game Nerd, who delves back towards Bible games for one last time. Check it out!
And now for the latest news from the for retro-gaming market. We are now seeing more and more folks releasing homebrew games for old-school consoles! But I’m certainly not complaining, quite the opposite actually. It’s just that it’s been a growing trend as of late and I find it fascinating. This time round, I came across this homebrew game for the Magnavox Odyssey 2 and Philips Videopac consoles. The game, simply called Mayhem, has you collecting coins in a room whilst dodging spinning sticks. The video should explain it better :P

Do you happen to still own an Apple II and also write Chiptunes? Then you might be in luck here. 8bit Weapon and M J Mahon have collaborated to release a drum sequencer for said computer. It’s pretty cool that they’re selling it either as a .dsk file, or on an actual floppy diskette. Now to find an Apple II computer, or emulator of sorts…
Available for sale at 8bit Weapon’s store.
And finally, the creator of one of the most popular IP’s in video game history (Mario and Zelda), Shigeru Miyamoto has hinted in a recent interview with Wired Magazine that he wants to step down from his current position at Nintendo. If this is confirmed as true, then this news comes as quite a shock considering how much he’s contributed to the gaming industry. Before you all start panicking, he’s not retiring from game development entirely, it is more that he wants to be fully prepared if he does leave Nintendo. A spokesperson from Nintendo on Reuters has denied that Shigeru is leaving Nintendo.
