Vidya Game News – January 22, 2016

Ni No Kuni - Box Art - 01jpg“Kick, punch, it’s all in the mind!” – Master Onion, PaRappa.

– Super cool story, as a student has translated game worlds into subway maps. Games included are Metroid, The Legend of Zelda, Maniac Mansion, Dragon Warrior and Final Fantasy.

– Also cool: Some programmers are trying to make Ocarina of Time into a 2D Zelda game. In which case, Steve might actually play it! Check it out here.

– From Wired and several other sites, Atari will be releasing 100 classic games for Steam in its Atari Vault package this spring.

ON THIS DAY IN VIDEO GAME HISTORY…

– Although it’s not really that old, by far the best game to come out on this day in history is Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch for the PS3 in 2013. While it’s only three years old, it’s definitely worth checking out, and a sequel was just announced for the PS4.

– Historically, January is kind of a dumping ground for games. So, most of the decent games are all semi-recent: No More Heroes for the Wii in 2008, and of course, Dead or Alive Xtreme Beach Volleyball for the Xbox in 2003.

Video game history information comes from GameFAQs and Moby Games. And as always, if you’d like to support the show, do so via our Amazon link.
