One of the odder phenomena is how things often come in waves. Celebrities seem to die in threes. In motion pictures, there will often be several movies on the same subject released within a period of a few months. Minis seem to do this as well; right now, most of the Minis, either ports or [...]

There’s been a ruckus in the gaming community with the PlayStation Vita not being able to play some Minis, notably the PS Plus freebies. FINALLY, we’ve got news that isn’t relating to Minis not working on PS Vita! The ESRB has rated SAR – Search and Rescue, a classic arcade vertical shooter.
I am not 100% [...]

In the 1980s, one of the more popular genres of video games was Olympic sports. In retrospect, it’s hard to see why, other than that the Olympics were just far more popular than today because of the Cold War, but also perhaps because they were one of the few types of mini-game collections back then.

Old SNK arcade games have made up a lot of the Minis we’ve gotten lately. They seem to have started with the older titles, and now we’re getting their later ones.

Depending on your age, forgive me for using a Vertical Horizon/Drake song as a review subtitle. Still, Prehistoric Isle in 1930 is for the much older players to reminisce with. I am a 90s person, but I do have greater knowledge of the NES era and, to some extent, its arcade precursors. This particular arcade [...]
