There’s a New ‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles’ Arcade Game on the Horizon…

Sometime last month, there was an announcement that a new TMNT arcade game was being developed (based on the recent Nickelodeon reincarnation),which would be featuring similar four-player co-op action that made Konami’s 1989 version and the Turtles in Time follow-up all-time classics. However, at the time of said announcement, there was no footage to compliment this (in the minds of TMNT fans and fans of fun video games) awesome bit of news. At least until now! Arcade Heroes spent some hands-on time with that game and captured a lot of gameplay footage, from a single player level (above), a level that could be played by three players (after the break), and Arcade Heroes hey also got to spend some hands-on time with the game, so you should check out their impressions here.

Get Ready for ‘Paprium,’ a Brand New Beat-Em-Up Game for the Sega Genesis!

So what if the last game commercially released on the Sega Genesis was the 1998 port of Frogger. That means, if you don’t count other homebrew or indie games (hey there, Pier Solar & the Great Architect), that it has been approximately 19 years since a brand new game has been released on the Genesis. So if you’re like me and have been holding on to Sega’s best-selling console (despite also owning a Retron 5), then we all have Paprium, a nice little Final Fight-inspired beat-em-up game that’s scheduled to come out later this year. Plus, if you’re wondering why I mentioned Pier Solar, this new game is being made by the same company, WaterMelon Games. HUZZAH!

Don’t Forget to Play ‘Kung Fury’ on PS4!

I had absolutely NO IDEA that there was a video game based on the short-film movie Kung Fury (and if you haven’t watched it yet, it’s up on YouTube for FREE) and it’s called Kung Fury: Street Rage. Apparently, the fairly simple beat-’em-up video game has been available on Steam and mobile for a while now, but it’s ALSO  available for the PlayStation 4.

WWE Brawl; The Game That NEVER WAS…

I know that there are some things that Vince McMahon want people to forget: the WBF (World Bodybuilding Federation), the failed relaunch of WCW (World Championship Wrestling), the failed return of the nWo (New World Order) and the XFL (which stood for…well…TECHNICALLY nothing…).  Maybe we can chalk up another failed project to that pile.  Recently, concept art for an unreleased WWE fighting game, title WWE Brawl, depicting John Cena as a SWAT team member, “Stone Cold” Steve Austin as a thug-like Mad Max and Mr. McMahon himself in a Lex Luthor-esque mech suit. More concept pictures and a gameplay video after the break! Continue reading WWE Brawl; The Game That NEVER WAS…

What Would a ‘Happy Gilmore’ 8-Bit Brawler With Adam Sandler Look Like?

While the sequel to one of my FAVORITE NES games EVER — River City Ransom (a.k.a. “Downtown Hot-Blooded Story”) — is still in development, the talented group of people behind the 8-bit Cinema series became inspired by the classic Technos Japan NES beat ’em up, and created a crossover clip with the most obvious selection, the 1996 Adam Sandler film Happy Gilmore. Do you see that GIF. Pretty awesome, right. But I know you want to check out the full video, you can check that out after the break. But don’t worry; the price IS right….FREE!
