Mario Royale is a new battle royale that pits players against each other in a race through the Mushroom Kingdom

Mario Royale, a new browser game, pits one hundred players against each other in each level from the classic platformer. Developed by Youtuber InfernoPlus, whose patreon says they make "unfunny videos and bad games," Mario Royale is a fully functional remake of the NES game written with HTML5. "The core design of Mario Royale is that players don't interact directly with each other but interact with each other through the game world itself." There are plenty of active players enjoying the game ri

Final Fantasy 14’s director cracks up when asked if it will ever get classic servers

Though few might remember it, Final Fantasy 14 originally launched in 2010, and was Not Good. That 2010 version of Final Fantasy is forever lost to time, though. At E3, Easy Allies interviewed Final Fantasy 14 game director Naoki Yoshida and, with WoW Classic looming, asked a reasonable question: Would Final Fantasy 14 ever get classic servers that recreated its 2010 version? When it first released in 2010, Final Fantasy 14 was an absolute disaster of a game. If you want to find out more about F

On Monday, Blizzard announced that everyone in the Americas and Oceania with a current World of Warcraft subscription is going to get the chance to try out Classic on June 19.

Nintendo just single-handedly redeemed E3 2019 with nostalgia and new ideas

Nintendo brought some enormous guns to E3 2019, with more details on games we already knew about, tied with release dates and surprise announcements tapping into nostalgia not just for old games, but classic movies.
