Five Things You Don't Know About Nintendo Power

For many of us, Nintendo Power was the gateway drug to harder video game magazines. With its eye-catching cover designs and an emphasis on detailed strategy guides, Nintendo Power toed the line between informative news source and wildly biased propaganda machine. No matter where you come down on this long-running magazine, it's interesting to look back at some of the misconceptions people have about Nintendo Power's early days. Here are five facts you didn't know about Nintendo Power.

Top 10 Awkward Conversations in Castlevania: Symphony of the Night Welcome to Great Moments in Bad Acting, your weekly history lesson about terrible voice acting.

Today marks the penultimate episode for the season. We're celebrating with a personal favorite of mine -- Castlevania: Symphony of the Night.

Review: The Gardens Between (PlayStation 4, Switch & Steam) - Defunct Games

Defunct Games reviews The Gardens Between by The Voxel Agents, available September 20 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Switch, PC, Mac and Linux. The Gardens Between is a small game that will leave a big impact. It's an enthralling journey with endlessly clever puzzles and a deeply emotional core that will no doubt remind you of your childhood friends. It's also gorgeous. I love the look of this game and its gentle, soothing atmosphere. It's also creative, but never overwhelming or frustrating. The Gardens Between is a time-bending puzzler for anybody that wants to feel something. This is a special game.

Defunct Games reviews Finding Light by Joshua Keith, available October 15 on PC.

Finding Light won't be for everybody, but it works well as a love letter to a very specific era of role-playing games. Fans of early adventure games on the old black and white Game Boy will get a kick out of this brief but effective journey to rescue friends and slay demons. It's a little buggy and suffers from a lot of the same issues that plagued those early 8-bit RPGs, but the combat is fun in all the right ways and the pacing never lets up. If you long for the days of getting into random battles every few steps, then Finding Light is definitely for you.
