Following our post on My Nintendo gold coins not being received with UK copies of The Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth +, we made contact with Nintendo with evidence of our purchase. Around a week later, we received an email explaining that the issue had been looked into and had now been resolved. We were then advised to insert the game cartridge once more and perform the process of redeeming the gold coins....

My Nintendo Gold Coins and...

The new and improved My Nintendo is looking better than ever. Purchase any digital (Wii U, 3DS and Switch) or retail game (Switch only) and watch your gold coin jar fill-up. Where are the Gold Coin Rewards for Nintendo Switch? However, if you’re like me, you’ve been waiting patiently to use your gold coins for Nintendo Switch Software. The issue is…there aren’t any.

Pre-ordering from a well-known online retailer had secured my UK release of The Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth+ for Nintendo Switch (or so I thought). On the very day of release (07/09/2017) I received an email stating that due to stock issues, my order was delayed and I’d receive another email confirming dispatch very soon. A few days later I received my copy of The Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth+ but...

Why King of the Fighters X...

King of the Fighters XIV is now available to buy on Playstation 4 and Steam. Strange, considering the franchise made its home debut on a cartridge. Just one of the reasons why SNK Playmore need to bring the King of the Fighters 14 to Nintendo Switch. King of the Fighters and the cartridge Rewind to 1994 and SNK had released an arcade-perfect port of King of the Fighters 94, for their cartridge-based AES...

The ZX Spectrum was my first taste of home gaming. Tape-loading and taking anywhere from 5-10 minutes just to load a game, you had to manage your game time well (we had no TV in our bedroom at the time, so were against the clock to bring it downstairs and hook it up to the big screen). The one positive with the tape-loading drive, was that a friend could come round with a game and once it had been fully...

Polymega – Next-Gen ...

The retro console business is really starting to take-off. Third parties have their multi-retro cart systems and now even the big names (e.g. Nintendo) are feeding their classic library cash-cows and producing retro units of their own. With quite a few choices, it would take an incredibly versatile and innovative consoles design to compete in this flourishing market. Enter Polymega. What is Polymega...

Tips For Pre-Ordering The ...

First, we highly recommend staying strong and searching stores for SNES Classic Mini pre-order allocations. Nintendo are still yet to finish supplying online and retail stores (they’ll at least manufacture up until the end of the year), so keep searching! If you still prefer to pre-order the SNES Classic Mini on Ebay: – Understand Ebay’s 30 day pre-order auction/sales rule – This...

Update 27/09/2017 – John Lewis are taking pre-orders from 8pm tonight! The Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) brought the official announcement of Nintendo’s new retro console – The SNES Classic Mini.
