I bring you dismal news, MeltedJoystick readers. Sadly, the physical distribution of videogames has reached the end of its usefulness. As much as it pains me – as a staunch proponent of physical media and perpetual software ownership – I have to admit that physical media in videogames is no longer what it once was. Cartridges and discs have remained largely the same in structure, but the ways in ...

I’m not going to give DIRECTV, the satellite pay TV company, credit for knowing anything about the videogames industry or the contemporary gaming

Welcome back to another look into the near future! October is here, and that mean’s Halloween is officially old news (as of August), and the Christmas/Holiday Season is ready to kick-off with a bunch of crap bewildered parents and grandparents are supposed to buy for their demanding Second-Run Millennials. There are a WHOPPING 57 game releases coming in October – FIFTY-SEVEN! – but once you filte...

A picture is worth a thousand words, right? Well, Square Enix, the company that in 2012 was considered a ‘complete failure’ is still failing away. We thought the “Final Fantasy 13” Trilogy was bad enough, but “Final Fantasy Versus 13 15...

Over the last several years, I’ve found myself harping on the evils of DLC and microtransactions, completely dismayed at the success of these predatory, unscrupulous, and consumer hostile practices in the videogames industry that are significantly inf...

I’ve been a fan of the Dorkly YouTube channel’s “Pokemon Rusty” webseries since the very first episode, which was posted in November of 2012. For those who aren’t in on the joke, “Pokemon Rusty” is a spoof of the original Red/Blue/Yellow versions of Game Freak’s “Pokemon,”...

Welcome back to another look into the near future! It’s Back to School time, once again! All the cute, little mistakes that resulted from birth control failures are now out of Mom’s and Dad’s hair for the vast majority of their time. And when the little sweeties are at home? They want to hunker down and play some garbage, like ‘Call of Duty’ or “Player Unknown’s Battlegrounds.” Really, wha...

In recent years, I’ve had ample opportunities to field test Microsoft gaming hardware… and I really like it! This praise may come as a surprise in light of my constant exhortations that Xbox is a plague upon console gaming and should never have existed in the first place. However, my view on the Xbox itself has not changed ...

We’re constantly working to make MeltedJoystick better. The most recent improvement to the site is the addition of TurboGrafx-16 (and TurboCD/TurboDuo) titles to the database. You can now officially, rate, list, and review all of the forgotten classics from Hudson’s/NEC’s 4th Gen contender (which was obliterated by the SNES and the Genesis).

What? You never owned a TG-16 or knew anyone who did...
