Well, my name's Christopher Deleanides as you all know and I'm the Nintendo Editor here at BG. I've been playing video games since 1992, and I've been a Nintendo fan the entirety of those years. My love for video games as well as Nintendo hasn't changed, and probably never will. The only thing that comes close is politics, as I'm very deeply involved in both local and international issues.

  1. Okay so this one is going on the ‘buy’ list. I was a huge fan of SS on the 3DO, so I’m more than in for another go at the game. Being mobile makes it all that much sweeter too.

    Yeah I remember playing Samurai Shodown back in the day, it’s a damn good game. It’s encouraging to see quality titles like this on mobile devices, it shows that there’s more than just Angry Birds and the like on them.

  3. The days of mobile gaming being a casual only thing are fast disappearing. There’s some great stuff out there, which always makes me wonder how much longer handheld consoles really have left.

    It all depends on what Nintendo and Sony do with them I suppose. Nintendo’s got brand recognition as well as 3D, and Sony is keeping the Vita relevant with its ability to connect to the PS3 and PS4. Time will tell.
