Retro Studios Celebrates 20 Years In Gaming

Retro Studios Celebrates 20 Years In Gaming

26 days ago   |   By N4G

By Ryan Craddock:
"We imagine Retro Studios is one company that needs absolutely no introduction on these pages, but we're about to provide one anyway as the developer is today celebrating 20 years in the world of gaming.
Yes, back in 1998, Retro Studios was born as a game development studio with Nintendo acting as a parent company. Its initial aim was to create games which would appeal to an older demographic for the GameCube (which, at the time, was still a few years away from release). Eventually, all efforts were focused on a new project called Metroid Prime - a new entry to the series...

Flip your car around with Tony Hawk's Pro Skater-inspired REKT

I've been longing to play a Tony Hawk's Pro Skater game that doesn't suck for the better half of a decade now.

REKT is a difficult title to describe. It's part Rocket League , but also part extreme sports game. In REKT, players are dropped into an open arena with a one-minute time limit and are tasked with accomplishing specific goals. For example, sometimes missions require...
