Nostalgia is a funny thing. Sometimes it’s there to back up those feelings that you’ve held true for so many years. Other times it’s a lie that has warped your perspective of what a fun time it really was.

In case you haven’t heard by now, the rumor mill is going a little crazy after Eurogamer announced Nintendo might be in the works of releasing a SNES Mini Classic much like they did with their original entertainment system this past winter.
With such rumors run the media outlets to speculation of what the game line up would be and this gamer as well. But this time, rather than just throwing a list of games together and moving on, there shall be a fire fight! A small competition with fellow blogger, podcaster, and video game enthusiast Jared Waldo. Each of us would slap together a list of 30 possible titles that may or may not appear on the rumored SNES Mini and the person with the most correct answers wins. What do they win? We haven’t decided yet. On with the list! Continue reading My List for the 30 SNES Mini titles + a Wager→

With Nintendo’s success with their mascot Mario, many companies followed suit trying to find that one creature that would separate them from the rest of the pact. Sega went through many before settling on the blue blur of Sonic the Hedgehog. Some of these include: Alex Kidd, Vectorman, Ristar, Greendog. Many of them were in some great games but for whatever reason, their character didn’t take off. One of those mascots was known simply as Wonderboy.
