Geek Dad Report: Am I His Ultimate Protector In Game Too?

Geek Dad Report: Am I His Ultimate Protector In Game Too?

We’ve started letting our 5 year old play on my old Nintendo, of course, he loves Ninja Turtles Arcade. Now, I’ll disclose this early on, after a couple of game sessions we couldn’t make it past the first level in the game. Eventually, I realized it was a Konami game, and well, you know what […]

Pac-Man Highway Gives Me The Willies

I don’t quite know why, but as a kid I used to get easily scared by the ghosts in Pac-Man. I’m sure kids in the current generation aren’t scared quite so simply…considering what they have on TV and movies these days, but watching this video just reminded me how creepy the ghosts are in Pac-Man.

Daigo Breaks Up With Ryu

Daigo Breaks Up With Ryu

If you’re a fan of the fighting games, then you know the name Daigo Umehara all too well. You might recall him from that one EVO 2004 video where he managed to parry all of the kicks in Chun-Li’s super combo finish, only to turn it around on her. I tell ya what, click me […]

Blargh! X-Men Arcade Coming to PSN, XBLA

Blargh! X-Men Arcade Coming to PSN, XBLA

The classic quarter-eater, X-Men, is coming back, and unlike some recent releases that I dare not mention will remain relatively untouched. The game will remain a six-player ordeal and will support both local and online multiplayer (due to hardware limitations, the Xbox Live Arcade version will be limited to 4 locally, but the remaining slots […]

Eurogamer Expo 2010 – Marvel vs Capcom 3 Footage

The nerd-boners keep on piling up for me today as I’ve been pouring over all of the excellent games that have been getting demoed at the Eurogamer Expo this year. One of the most anticipated games by the majority of the WPR staff would have to be Marvel vs Capcom 3.

An Ode to the Neo Geo MVS Cabinet

An Ode to the Neo Geo MVS Cabinet

IF, and that’s a big if (especially considering the current generation of gamers), you remember the time spent in arcades and all of the money wasted there, then you probably were like me and spent considerable time playing any and everything with the words “NEO GEO” printed on them.

MWN Impressions: Vigilante 8 Arcade

Today saw the release of Vigilante 8 Arcade onto the Xbox Live Marketplace. I was a huge fan of the previous two installments on the original Playstation so you can imagine my face when I saw this. Vigilante 8 Arcade is essentially a remake of the first two Vigilante 8 games in a neat package […]
