While Princess Toadstool ruled the 80's as one of the most well known female characters and Ms. Pac-Man was, well, a bow add-on to Pac Man, there weren't many fictional women characters in games. Super Mario Bros. 2 allowed you to play as Toadstool and it gave players an idea what each character gameplay and … Continue reading Lara Croft And The Leading Ladies

A console survives not only on its software but they availability of the console. As weird as it sounds, it's something most don't approach on the longevity of that console.
