Following the crazy demand for Nintendo’s first-party retro gaming emulator, the NES Classic Edition, one might expect the market for retro consoles to explode. There’s already a wide range of unofficial emulator boxes — they pre-dated the NES Classic.

The Super Retro Boy, the next third-party retro-facing console from Retro-bit, takes a more interesting approach. Unlike the Classic, the Retro Boy can play Game Boy, Game Boy Color, and Game Advance cartridges.

What could be exciting news for those who love experiencing virtual reality, Epic Games has developed a new game that is the gallant successor to "Bullet Train," a previous VR demo that showcased its Unreal Engine technology which incorporated the Oculus Touch motion controllers. Robo Recall steps into the spotlight amongst other related robot games and has caught much attention from its action intensive first-person-shooter game style, open and enjoyable gameplay, in-depth scoring system and highly impressive combat.

Let’s face it, the state of virtual reality gaming isn’t looking so great these days. Though the Oculus Rift and HTC Vive managed to sell out rather quickly upon each of their respective releases, sales of the two devices have pretty much flatlined. The initial hype got early adopters to jump on board and buy units in droves, but the current sales numbers tell us that consumers just aren’t interested in VR gaming. Some believed this technology would usher in a new era of innovation for games, but it appears that VR is turning out to be the fad most (myself included) said it would be.
