  1. Bandai released Tamagotchi to the world in 1997 where it became one of the biggest crazes of the 90s. The small digital pet raising game was unlike anything anyone had experienced before in the time before mobile gaming had really taken off on anything aside from Nintendo's Game Boy. Since its initial release, Bandai has reworked and improved upon the concept of Tamagotchi for numerous different handheld iterations as well as full video game and feature film adaptations. While many fondly remember the tiny aliens as a 90s nostalgia fever dream, new versions are coming out all the time - in just a few weeks, a color version of Tamagotchi will release in an attempt to bring a new generation into the weird world of digital pet-rearing. Is it possible that Tamagotchi stands as one of the best games of all-time? Each week on The Best Games Period, we will be tackling a video game, old or new, that at least one of us believes deserves to stand as one of the greatest games of all time. We'll dive into its history, development, and gameplay, while trying to argue for or against the game of the week. Sometimes we will be in harmonious agreement, other times we might be fighting a bitter battle to the very end. However each episode shakes out, we hope that everyone who listens will find the show entertaining and informative. Outro music: Puyo Puyo 'I Just Skipped Time Yesterday' by Rexy (http://ocremix.org/remix/OCR03941) You can download or listen to the podcast over on Soundcloud, our hosting site, and iTunes. A YouTube version is available, as well! If you want to have your opinion heard on air, share your opinion in the comments, follow the show on Twitter, and participate in the weekly polls: @BestGamesPeriod New episodes of The Best Games Period will be released every Monday One of the common misconceptions about Extra Life is that someone can only participate if they play video games. Not true! Extra Life supports and encourages all kinds of play. To that end, we have been supporting Tabletop Appreciation Weekend for the past few years. This year, the event takes place August 24-25th and will be a time for players to gather together and play board games for the kids.

  3. My Arcade has made a name for itself creating a line of nostalgia devices that play retro games in the form of tiny arcade machines. The company has now unveiled its upcoming line of micro arcades alongside a line of portable retro players. The most notable handheld of My Arcade's lineup is definitely the Retro Champ, a handheld console that can play both NES and Famicom games on the go as well as connect to a television to play retro games on a bigger screen. As part of their deluge of news, My Arcade announced a partnership with Taito Corporation, the developer of arcade cabinets perhaps best known for creating Space Invaders and Bubble Bobble. This heralds a number of micro and handheld arcade machines of classics like the aforementioned Bubble Bobble as well as Elevator Action and Don Doko Don. They have also renewed their partnership with Bandai Namco to release an updated series of micro cabinets and handheld arcades for Ms. Pac-Man, Galaga, and Dig-Dug. The Retro Champ, unlike knock-off consoles or official micro consoles like the SNES Mini, plays the actual NES and imported Famicom cartridges with no games loaded onto it. The handheld boasts a 35-hour rechargable battery life, the option to purchase wireless controllers to use while on the couch when connecting the handheld to a television. The Retro Champ also comes with a kit to clean NES and Famicom cartridges, so users can have an alternative to blowing on their carts, a time-honored tradition that actually degrades them over time. The micro consoles and handhelds from My Arcade will be releasing throughout 2019 and the Retro Champ is expected to launch in June of this year.

  5. Spoiler alert: Both machines rely on emulating games made for other consoles and handhelds. Soulja Boy has taken it upon himself to enter the console business by launching two new pieces of hardware with his name attached. Under the brand SouljaGame, the rapper released the SouljaGame Console and the SouljaGame Handheld, both of which seem to be part of a larger effort on his part to put together a line of branded products that includes the SouljaWatch, SouljaPad, SouljaPhone, and SouljaPods. While certainly an interesting business move, observers have noted the similarity all of the products bear to high profile knock-off electronics that can be found on services like Wish or Alibaba. Compare the SouljaGame Console on the left to the Product X PRO 4K Video Game Console found on Alibaba The reliance on emulation stands out as perhaps the most shocking part about the launch of these devices. The SouljaGame Console comes packaged with 800 console titles and promises to play games intended for SouljaGame, PlayStation, NeoGeo, PC, Sega, Game Boy Advance, and NES games. The console also claims to be capable of outputting 4K resolutions. Meanwhile, the SouljaGame Handheld comes stocked with 3,000 titles and claims to play games intended for Nintendo Switch, 3DS, PlayStation Vita, NeoGeo, Game Boy, Game Boy Color, and Game Boy Advanced. Setting aside the dubiously legal nature of emulation as an explicit purpose for a commercial product, the console itself seems to be a slightly repackaged version of the Product X PRO 4K Video Game Console. Both share almost exactly the same specs, right down to the built-in library of 800 games and the support of TF memory cards up to 32gb in size. Both consoles even make use of controllers that appear to be wholesale ripoffs of PlayStation's controller designs. As for the SouljaGame Handheld, it's even more of a mystery. The handheld's massive library seems to be an eclectic grab-bag of titles with the games advertised on it ranging from something that looks like an Incredibles game from the Game Boy Advance, an untranslated Pokemon game, Golden Sun, Sonic Racing, and more. It also claims to have download support and the ability to play games on the handheld on the television via a "connerting cable." The device seems like it can also play videos as it boasts MKV and AVI file support. Honestly, I don't know what to make of this. I don't think I could recommend anyone go out of their way to buy either of these machines, but I also can't deny that I have a morbid curiosity that makes me want to experiment with this strange collection of devices. On the other hand, with the recent revelation that Sony's PlayStation Classic runs on emulation, boasts fewer games, and is easily hacked, maybe there's a market for a dedicated emulation machine with a much larger library? What do you think of Soulja Boy's ambitious foray into the console and handheld markets?

  7. EA announced details on the Nintendo Switch version of FIFA 18, which is sure to give football fanatics a reason to rejoice outside of home. As expected of the Switch’s unique portability, players can bring FIFA 18 wherever they want by disconnecting it from the home dock. The game reportedly outputs at 1080p when docked and 720p when mobile. Visual performance might take a hit if you prefer to game on the field, but at least it’s nowhere close to the downgrade cross-generation ports of previous sports games entailed. Players can participate in Local Seasons mode across two Switch consoles, in addition to Kick-Off mode, Career, Online Seasons, Tournaments, Women’s International Cup and Skill games. EA also debuted a new gameplay trailer for FIFA 18, although footage largely looks to be from the PlayStation 4 edition of the game, so take any visuals with a grain of salt if you're planning on getting the Switch edition. FIFA 18 is out on September 29 for all major consoles. Where do you plan on hitting the field? View full article

  9. Not a huge fan of the 3D features or price of the New 3DS? Nintendo has got you covered with their latest announcement. In a recent release, Nintendo revealed that the New 2DS XL will be releasing this coming July. The new New 2DS will adopt the hinged design of the 3DS line, but ditch all the 3D features that the core handheld has offered since launch (with the exception of the previous 2DS). This new version of the handheld will be thinner, boast screen sizes on par with its New 3DS counterpart, and offer built-in amiibo support. The faster processing power of the 2DS XL means that it will be able to play older games more smoothly as well as tackling the more graphics intensive games that were exclusive to the New 3DS like Xenoblade Chronicles. Reggie Fils-Aime, Nintendo of America's president and COO, proclaimed that, “this new addition to Nintendo’s portable hardware line demonstrates our commitment to the hand-held market. New Nintendo 2DS XL sports a beautiful clamshell design and offers a great balance between price and performance.” The New 2DS XL will launch on July 28 and retail for $149.99, about $50 cheaper than the current price of the New 3DS XL. If you're someone in the market for a new handheld and don't truck with all that 3D flim-flam because of vision issues or personal preference, a cheaper alternative will soon be available. While the trailer only shows a black/blue unit being sold, the system will also be available in white/orange-yellow. Hey! Pikmin invites players into a 2D, side-scrolling world unlike any Pikmin title before. This new adventure has players guiding Captain Olimar through increasingly difficult levels to collect fuel for his newly crashed spaceship, the S.S. Dolphin 2. "Where are the pikmin?" you might ask. Never fear! Olimar continues to guide Pikmin in his efforts to repair his vessel. Players use the touchscreen to select which of the colorful creatures to hurl at obstacles or monsters. The new title launches the same day as the New 2DS XL, July 28. Incidentally, another game called Miitopia launches the same day. It's a light strategy/RPG game that uses characters you've collected or created for your Mii Plaza, Miitomo app, or Tomodachi Life game to populate a world loosely based on the built-in RPG-lite adventure that comes installed on the 3DS line of systems.

  11. Since new consoles aren't announced every day from a major manufacturer, this week's episode focuses squarely on Nintendo's recent reveal of the Switch, their upcoming next-gen device that can become either a console or handheld. Jeremy had to go save kids or something, so this discussion falls to Jack and Daniel who hold somewhat differing opinions on Nintendo's hybrid creation. Will the Switch be a success or a commercial flop? Each week we will be tackling a video game, old or new, that at least one of us believes deserves to stand as one of the greatest games of all time. We'll dive into its history, development, and gameplay, while trying to argue for or against the game of the week. Sometimes we will be in harmonious agreement, other times we might be fighting a bitter battle to the very end. However each episode shakes out, we hope that everyone who listens will find the show entertaining and informative. Outro music: The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 'Dance of the Kokiri' by Chris ~ Amaterasu and Doc Nano (http://ocremix.org/remix/OCR03438) You can download or listen to the podcast over on Soundcloud, our hosting site, and iTunes.

  13. Many thought the Nintendo-Sega rivalry was long dead, but this holiday season the specter of that old conflict will rise from the ashes. While Nintendo announced a new mini NES that will be hitting store shelves this holiday season, Sega has announced a Genesis mini-console as well as a portable Genesis. While many welcomed the news of a retro Nintendo box and threw money at their screens, some had a few valid complaints. Nintendo's miniature NES will be a digital only box, limited to 30 pre-installed titles with no slot to play physical copies of retro games. On top of that, it does not include an SD slot, access to the virtual console's digital library, and comes with only one controller. In comparison, Sega will be pre-installing 80 titles onto both the mini-console and the handheld. The console will even include a slot to play old Genesis titles that might not be included in the 80 game roster. Both the console and the handheld will have SD card slots, too. It will also come with two wireless Genesis controllers and support for the original controllers. However, it is notable that the console lacks an HDMI connection, which could prove frustrating by creating a small degree of input lag, and the wireless controllers rely on infrared technology which hasn't historically been kind to controllers. Sega's console manufacturing isn't quite what it used to be, so the console and handheld manufacturing are being handled by AtGames. AtGames is best known for dominating the Plug 'n Play niche of the gaming industry and is striving to bring the niche more credibility than it has had in the past. Below you can see the entire line-up of games for Sega's new-old consoles. Half are classics and half are labelled as "Sega Arcade/Puzzle games" and might be lesser known to those who haven't had extensive experience with the Genesis. Classics: Alex Kidd in the Enchanted Castle Alien Storm Altered Beast Arrow Flash Bonanza Bros. Chakan: The Forever Man Columns Columns III ComixZone Crack Down DecapAttack Dr. Robotnik’sMean Bean Machine ESWAT: City Under Siege Eternal Champions Fatal Labyrinth Flicky Gain Ground Golden Axe Golden Axe II Golden Axe III Jewel Master Kid Chameleon Mortal Kombat I Mortal Kombat II Mortal Kombat III Phantasy Star 2 Phantasy Star 3 Ristar Shadow Dancer: The Secret of Shinobi Shinobi III: Return of the Ninja Master Sonic & Knuckles Sonic Spinball Sonic the Hedgehog Sonic the Hedgehog II Sonic 3D Blast Sword of Varmilion The Ooze Vectorman Vectorman II Sega Arcade/Puzzle games: Adventure in the Park Cross the road Jack’s Pea Jewel Magic Curling 2010 Plumbing Contest Wall-Breaking Bubble Master Break a Fireline Mahjong Solitaire Warehouse Keeper Chess Memory Snake Air Hockey Spider Naval Power Mr. Balls Cannon Fight or Lose Bottle Taps Race Bomber Checker Hexagonos Whack-A-Wolf Mirror Mirror Panic Lift Black Sheep Flash Memory Brain Switch Mega Brain Switch Hidden Agenda Dominant Amber Hide and Seek Jura Formula Lost World Sudoku Meatloaf Rotation Mya Master Mind Skeleton Scale T-Rex Memory Match Yawning Triceratops Labelled as the Sega MegaDrive/Genesis Ultimate Retro Games Console - 25th Sonic the Hedgehog Anniversary Edition, the console and handheld both retail for about $65 and can currently be pre-ordered from select retailers. There are definite trade-offs between Nintendo and Sega's mini devices. Those looking for a prime nostalgia trip or interesting gift this holiday season now have to relive the old dilemma once again: Nintendo or Sega?
