This week marks 20 years of Tekken 3, an amazing fighter released in one of the best periods for the genre. Tekken 3 brought a much faster and much more fluid combat system to players, a vision which other 3D fighters would eventually join. But where it really stood out was its amazing PS1 port. Running just as good as its arcade counterpart, it went above and beyond with a smattering of extras. Sidescrolling Brawler: Got it. A volleyball minigame: Got that too. A theatre mode where you can watch endings from previous Tekken games...yep, Tekken 3 had it. Do you have any fond memories of Tekken 3?

Castlevania: Symphony of the Night 20th Anniversary - Old Game Plus

Every 1000 years, Dracula's castle reappears, but nobody quite expected how this iteration would turn out. Castlevania: Symphony of the Night was released on this day 20 years ago, and started the franchise down a wholly new road - -bringing in RPG and Metroid-inspired elements to create something new and revolutionary. It's still a masterclass in 2D pixel art and level design, and holds up incredibly well in 2017. We streamed the game recently, showing off just what makes this one of the best games in the series. Do you have any memories of Symphony of the Night?

When other companies announce their consoles they go deep into the numbers, focusing on sales figures, subscribers and teraflops. Nintendo was never one to conform with its fellow console makers, a tradition which continued when we found out the hybrid home/handheld nature of the Switch  and Friday’s full reveal was no different. Let’s get straight into the important details. The Switch will launch worldwide on 3rd March 2017 and will cost $US299 (as at writing, EB Games has the console listed for $AU469). The Switch will feature a capacitive touchscreen (more akin to a smartphone than t...
