  • Blog Post: Seven Game Series Begging For The Super Mario Maker Treatment

    Super Mario Maker captured the imaginations of Nintendo fans at this year's E3. The Nintendo World Championship 2015 highlighted the insane degree of entertainment and unpredictability a creative mind can pack into custom stages. NWC 2015's final challenge was filled with surprising enemies like... More
  • Blog Post: Tim Turi's Top 10 Sonic The Hedgehog Games Of All Time

    I grew up playing the Sega Master System and Sega Genesis. That's what my family had. I adored my upbringing with Sega's consoles, but always felt like a black sheep watching my friends revel in Nintendo system classics like Mario, Zelda, and Mega Man. While I remained jealous of my peers'... More
  • Blog Post: Replay – ToeJam & Earl 2 (Special Guest: Riff Raff)

    We've listened to Tim rave about the soundtrack for ToeJam & Earl for years, and figured it was about time to bring out the Genesis to play it for ourselves. When some antagonistic Earthlings stow away as the two aliens head back to Funkotron, it's up to the funky duo to track them down and... More
  • Blog Post: Replay – Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Hyperstone Heist

    Despite the ongoing console wars amongst consumers, most multiplatform games in the same generation are basically identical. Back in the Super Nintendo versus Sega Genesis days, games would always be at least a little bit off from each other due to hardware differences. In some cases (Shadowrun for example... More
  • Blog Post: Nostalgia Corner: '90s Nickelodeon Games

    The early '90s brought a slew of beloved Nickelodeon shows that are still talked about to this day. From the crazy game shows, Guts and Double Dare , to zany cartoons like Rocko's Modern Life and The Ren and Stimpy Show , the network dominated kid's TV programming, making the '90s often... More
  • Blog Post: Developer Salute – Sonic Team Circa Early '90s

    In the same way some football fans fondly remember the Chicago Bears’ spectacular 1985 season, or music connoisseurs might prefer The Beatles’ studio years, I have a special place in my heart for 16-bit era Sonic Team. Here’s my salute to the development team behind the blue hedgehog’s... More
  • Blog Post: Test Chamber – Castle Of Illusion Starring Mickey Mouse

    The classic 1990 Sega Genesis title Castle of Illusion Starring Mickey Mouse is being remade by Sega in high-definition. The downloadable platformer (not to be confused with DreamRift's 3DS title ) is coming to PSN, XBLA, and PC this summer. We got to play through the beginning stages of the game... More
  • Blog Post: Moments: Ghouls N’ Ghosts’ Cruel Joke

    There is only one game I will pledge as my childhood companion, a lifelong friend I can never shake regardless of its deceptions forced upon me. I can still hear the music, sound effects of losing armor, resonances of the weapons, enemy grumbles, and environment gurgles. I’ve come to know Ghouls... More
  • Blog Post: Replay – Chuck Rock (Guest: Frank Caliendo)

    Many editors here at Game Informer grew up loving 2D platformers, and returning to the genre is always fun for a look back. We weren't the only ones ready for some Genesis action, as comedian Frank Caliendo was a huge gamer as he grew up. He was in town for a stand-up gig, so I asked him if he'd... More
  • Blog Post: My First Game: Evan Wells - Toejam & Earl In Panic On Funkotron

    In issue 227 of Game Informer we ran an article composed of highlights from an interview we had with Naughty Dog co-president about the first game he ever worked on, Toejam & Earl in Panic on Funkotron. Now we're pleased to present the entirety of that interview. Long before Naughty Dog co-president... More
  • Blog Post: The Console Time Capsule

    We all have (mostly) fond memories of console launches and the excitement of those early days. The sexy new graphics. The new batch of games. The untold possibilities. A handful of Game Informer editors jotted down some of their memories about those heady times. What do you think? Tell us your launch... More
  • Blog Post: Why We Love Sonic 3 & Knuckles

    The Sonic series has endured more twists, turns, false starts, and drop-offs than one of the blue hedgehog’s own levels. When discussing the best game in the series, many longtime fans ignore the post-Dreamcast stuff and stick to the Genesis era. There are several wonderful 16-bit Sonic games,... More
  • Blog Post: Replay – Castlevania Bloodlines

    The Castlevania series has a long, proud heritage, but not every game in the franchise is a highly regarded classic. Bloodlines for the Genesis isn't a completely awful game, but it's definitely not as well-remembered as other Castlevania games. This week on Replay, we decided to take a look... More
