Game Boy Original Action RPG of the Month: Final Fantasy Adventure Final Fantasy Adventure is more like The Legend of Zelda that it is Final Fantasy, but it is a good game nonetheless. You play as a
Diddy Kong Racing is based on Mario Kart 64, only with better graphics, and a little more of a plot. One to four people can play this game, but there can also be six racers at a time. For One Player:
"... make sure that you don't agree to anything about canceling the contest." That's what they said to him after he won the competition. Ominous advice from the Swordquest veterans. What could it mean
Neal Iannone's webcomic about videogames and the nerds who play them.
Let's say for a moment that you're Psygnosis, little-known game publisher with only a few major hits under your belt. You've just scored the rights to one of the hottest untapped licenses available:
"You are waking from a stupor that feels like a chronic headache after a week in Vegas. You notice your right palm is covered with dried blood, but you can neither see nor feel any wounds. You feel a

You know what I have come to realize this month? That far, far too many of you don't *really* care about GameCola. We grace your e-mail inbox with our free-of-charge newsletter once every month (well, almost every month), and you do nothing for us in return, not even so much as give us a lousy top 10 list. What the heck is with that, any? We might not even have a list this month if it weren't for the fortunate foresight of video game guru Terrance Atkins. Honestly, sometimes I think you just subscribe to GameCola because it makes you look cool, not because you actually give a h00t about us. Which is understandable, because everyone who's anyone subscribes to GameCola, but the very least you could do is show us some gratitude for giving you such elite status! Heck, at this point, I'd be happy to receive something so simple as some fan art, or even something so off-topic as a list of your 10 least favorite games. That's all I want, just some appreciation. If you'd be so kind. Danke.
Now, in case any of you haven't heard the news about this pseudo-miraculous video, it is basically of a person playing through the game of Super Mario Bros 3. in 11 minutes. The conspiracy comes in with whether or not he did this legitimately, or whether he/she cheated in some way/shape/form. One theory is that the person who did it used an emulator, playing the game in a slowed down mode, and then sped it up in the movie to make it seem like his feat had been performed at regular speed. This stems from the fact that some people have seen "jumping" and flashing and whatnot during the video, hinting at such editing.
