The 8-bit approach is already a winner but the trailer sets it off with that B-Movie gorefest voice over. Butcher isn’t available just yet but is set to land somewhere in Q2 of 2017   BU...

Wonder Boy introduced to Wonder Girl in new trailer

When French developer, LizardCube, revealed that they’d be creating a faithful but updated take on Wonder Boy, I was fairly excited. They recently confirmed that the game would feature a retro mode that would allow the player to mix and match the look of the original with a modern backing track and vice-versa. All of this is awesome for the retro-gamer. Now, Lizardcube and DotEMU have reveal...

Will you be a Cheetah in the new Injustice 2 trailer?

There can be fewer more fun and exciting things than taking two super heroes and making them face off in a battle. Forgetting the drudgery of Batman Vs Superman, as let’s face it, it was simply awful, the sight of two virtually indestructable super-human beings beating seven bells out of each other is mouth-watering at worst. NetherRealm Studios, with Warner Brothers Interactive Entertainmen...
