How much you want to bet a Simpsons game remake wouldn't have Marge wielding that vacuum?

Cobra Kai says HIYAH!!! Its pretty good and definitely a fun brawler.


An X-Men Retro Collection Would Rival TMNT's Cowabunga Collection

The Cowabunga Collection is one of the best retro collections ever. Another '90s pop culture hit, the X-Men, could comprise a similar collection.

Im not so sure. There was only 1 arcade beat em up and the others were fighters. The home games werent that memorable.

autobotdan422d ago (Edited 422d ago )

The Home xmen games on snes and genesis made by Capcom and Sega were all memorable good

Knightofelemia422d ago (Edited 422d ago )

Side action beat em up is the way to go Xmen only have one cabinet I know of that was done by Konami and I have the arcade game on my PS3. Turtles have two arcade cabinets Turtles has always been a beatem up on the NES, SNES and Genesis minus the first game on the NES. Most of the XMEN games are side scrolling platformers or shitty one offs by LJN. You can't rival side action beatem ups with platformers.

The Author clearly didnt play the 8-16 bit Marvel games. (Most of them sucked)

lodossrage422d ago

Yeah, the x-men game on the nes was ridiculously bad.

And even the snes and genesis games, while they were ok, they aren't games we think of fondly as favorites (well barring this author anyway lol).

HeliosHex422d ago

They were not as good as you might think. Please don't give them ideas.

CrimsonWing69422d ago

I guess… I mean the 2 Sega games were good, I think.

ZeekQuattro421d ago

Spider-man and the X-Men was mediocre at best but X-Men 2 Clone Wars was actually pretty good especially in the sound department.

Hit & Run is the best. We totally need a remake... or even a back compat release.

Orchard536d ago

I'd be down for either :)

RedDevils536d ago

I like the old Simpsons cast more.

Number1TailzFan536d ago

No Virtual Springfield? Though tbf it was more of an experience than a game, even though it did have some little gameplay in some parts. Fun for fans though.

Hit & Run was great, my only complaint would be that Homer didn't have enough missions, the game could've been a bit longer and bigger.

NecrumOddBoy536d ago

This! Virtual Springfield is hands down the best Simpsons game. Such love and a modern take on that (in VR) would really bring the 35 years of Simpson-mania together in one massive package. I would love this!

Homer didn't have enough missions? What do you mean? Homer and Bart were the only 2 characters that got 2 levels each.

Venoxn4g536d ago

I myself liked the DS version of the Simpsons game much more than the one on main consoles, it was a proper 2D platformer game, I recommend.

chicken_in_the_corn536d ago

Hit & Run is in dire need of a sequel. They could do so much more with the upgraded tech.

-Hermit-536d ago

15 years without a single Simpsons game now because it's in the hands of one of the worst companies, EA. A license in the hands of one of the worst companies and look what they have done to it. They have effectively killed it to make money off that crappy mobile game.
