I’ve been thinking of what retro games I’d really like to add to my collection. And to be honest, it’s not as easy as it used to be! Just for the NES alone, I’ve managed to fill four of the five biggest omissions in my collection in the past year (The Guardian Legend, The Magic…

Opinion: Contra Anniversary Collection’s Full Lineup
