25 Years Ago the SNES Hit North America

The Super Nintendo Entertainment System, (officially abbreviated the Super NES or SNES and commonly shortened to Super Nintendo) is a 16-bit video game console developed by Nintendo that was released in 1990 in Japan & South Korea, on August 23, 1991 in North America, 1992 in Europe and Australasia, and 1993 in South America. 

The SNES was a global success, becoming the best-selling console of the 16-bit era despite its relatively late start and the fierce competition it faced in North America & Europe from Sega’s Mega Drive/Genesis console. The SNES remained popular well into the 32-bit era, and continues to be popular among fans, collectors, retro gamers, and emulation enthusiasts, some of whom still make homebrew ROM images.

Pay what you want for Mega Man 9, 10, and other Capcom PS games ⊟

It’s a Humble Bundle for PlayStation! Just PS3 and PS4 now, no Vita stuff, but it’s still dang irresistible. Pay any amount for stuff like Super Puzzle Fighter II HD, Final Fight Double Impact (which includes Magic Sword, don’t forget) and that new Strider game!

Pay above the average and add Mega Man 9 and 10, Okami HD, Remember Me, Resident Evil HD, SSF2THD, and Lost Planet 3. For $15 or more, you also get Resident Evil 0 Remastered and DMC HD Collection. Plus you get to feel like you’re doing a good thing for charity by hoarding all these games.

The Overwatch Prayer

OW RNGesus, who art in MMR heaven,
Hallowed be thy matchmaking.
May winstreaks come, may team comps be well done,
On Assault as well as Defense.
Give us this day good team mates,
And forgive us our cheesing, as we forgive those who cheese against us
Lead us not into turrets, but deliver us to the payload.
For thine is the power,
In competitive and quickplay,
To victory forever and ever.

Amen.
