FC Twin Console

The base console itself is really light, but the plastic case seems strong enough to take a little beating. The controllers feel good in my hands even though it is much lighter than the original SNES controller. It may feel like cheap plastic and true enough I am sure it is not the best, but honestly they feel better than the original classic controller that you can purchase for the Wii.

Olivier Vermeille: Zallag

It was about politics, religion, betrayal, love, murder, friendship…all mixed perfectly with a near-perfect gameplay experience. I won’t go into detail about the mechanics but let’s just say that it was extremely motivating to level up your characters.

Chris Gerspacher: Kerberos Productions

It was a hard pick, but I mentally went through all my NES carts and I have to pick Ninja Gaiden. Bouncing from wall to wall, ninja star throwin’, minion dodgin’, hack and slash boss battlin’ – the original twitch gamer experience for me, personally.

Darren Grant: Kerberos Productions

The original prototypical city builder game, before the PC genre was really branded. No other city builder I know of has ever made the interplay of economics this tactile. Hours of zen tweaking and balancing rewarded with a flourishing ant farm community of little settlers going about their tiny tasks!

Henri Haimakainen: Colossal Order

It was something really cool compared to the single player games of the time. It also presented a different take on the multiplayer game mode since many games were about players taking turns to play the game rather than working together towards a common goal.

Lisa Haasbroek: Legacy Interactive

Remember in the original NES Metroid, when Samus took off her helmet and it turned out she was woman? It was totally jaw dropping at the time, since there were so few women game heroes in 1986, and I think it was one of the big moments that drew me into gaming as a kid. It’s been totally awesome to watch the gaming industry develop, and to see so many more women gaming these days (we make up more than half of all gamers now!)

Things you do in MMOs you wouldn’t do otherwise

One time I heard a guy talking with his girlfriend for hours about how he can split his time between, work, school, sex and World of Warcraft. I found it funny he didn’t say “girlfriend” or “relationship” instead he said sex.

Ten Questions with Tony Gonzales

Romstar was my first manufacturing job. I was half the tech department and later headed up the consumer division. Repair, beta testing, phone counselor, manual writing, I was there. Some previous work I did with a friend on an in-house hardware game system resulted in Magic Darts for the NES. I also helped ship, beta test since I had the only truck at the company (strange but true fact, the cabinet for Ninja Warriors was designed to fit the truck, an 88 Toyota short-bed.

Commercial Wars: The Celebrity Women of the Nintendo DS

So which Nicole should I be thinking of when watching this, the Eyes wide Shut Nicole, The Others Nicole or maybe Cat-woman Nicole? Poor Nicole may not be able to score high in Brain Training, but she knows how to hire a decorator that loves white, Martha Stewart maybe?
