The Two-Faced God’s month is here again, which means the old year is behind us, while we have all of 2018 to look forward to with joy and anticipation… or more likely, dread and trepidation. Let’s take a look-see if the New Year will start off with a bang or a wet plop.

Another year has come and gone, yet the videogames industry still hasn’t managed to self-destruct like it did in the early ‘80s at the hands of Atari (delenda est).

I just learned that I will be receiving a Nintendo Switch for Yule this year. This is a marked difference to the last four years, since starting way back in 2013 I have received ‘nuttin’ for Christmas’ except a handful of Steam gifts from my friends and colleagues here on MeltedJoystick.

But it’s the accursed “Romancing SaGa 2”!

I’ve discussed before how many classic SNES games were left behind by the North American branches of their respective publishers during the ‘90s. Recently, I’ve even been enjoying quite a number of these titles via the magic of emulation and fanslations.

Welcome back to another installment of the MeltedJoystick Review Round-Up. Here’s what our staff has reviewed since last time:

Nelson’s Reviews:

Welcome back to another look into the near future! Yule, and all of its syncretic Abrahamic holidays are just around the corner. What last-minute releases can we look forward to before the end of the first year of the Trump Administration? Let’s see!

What’s this? NO SHOVELWARE for December?! O frabjous day! Callooh! Callay! Well… I guess I do have one correction to make from prior...

I’m pretty sure Mountain Dew Game Fuel flavors come to grocery stores nationwide every year during Autumn, when the big annual Mainstream videogame releases drop, but as I said the last time I tasted and talked about Game Fuel back in 2014, the tie-in titles are so far outside my wheelhouse that relying on any form of in-...

After killing off their discrete GPU architecture, dubbed ‘Larrabee,’ way back in 2010, Intel has performed a complete 180, announcing that they will be diving back into the stand-alone GPU market, and giving Nvidia some much-needed competition. While AMD, the CPU ma...

Quite some time ago, I addressed the concept of DRM and praised ‘pirates,’ those anonymous hackers who strip DRM out of videogames and distribute them in gray/black channels for free, as saviors of old games – truly elite archivists whose preservation of gaming culture far outweighs the small financial damages their activities cause immediately.
