The greatest Nintendo Download there ever was or will be

3 mins read

Quarth… not only the glorious city of the far East in the world of Game of Thrones, but also a GameBoy title from ’90 where you shoot shapes from a spaceship.

Connection? I’m thinking no, other than the name of course. I don’t really remember Konami’s Quarth for the GameBoy, but it is kind of interesting. Your job it to fill in geometric shapes by shooting them while on board a tiny spaceship. Yep. 

SNK/Playmore continues its support of the Wii VC this week as Real Bout Fatal Fury 2 hears the opening bell and the terrifying Denpa Men arrive on the 3DS. They actually don’t look all that scary, but there’s something about that name…



  • The Denpa Men: They came by waves – $9.99 — Mysterious little creatures called “Denpa” Men float around near radio waves. You can’t see them normally, but you can find them and catch them in this dungeon RPG for Nintendo 3DS.
