  • SNK vs Capcom: Match of the Millennium (Review) Nintendo Switch

    Posted by on April 2, 2021 under Reviews, Switch
    The early 2000s was a great decade to be a fan of 2D fighting games. During this period in time, both Capcom and SNK collaborated on a series of fighting games that finally merged two of the best franchises in gaming history - Street Fighter II and The King of Fighters. Capcom, just like SNK, agreed to develop games independently of each other. What eventually culminated from Capcom’s half of... more.

    Posted by on February 1, 2021 under News, Reviews, Switch
    Known as the game that pioneered the shmup genre, Taito’s Space Invaders first made its debut in arcades back in 1978.
