Another week is behind us, ladies and gentlemen. Before Tuesday morning, everything seemed pretty quiet—then everything seemed to happen at once. I remember seeing seven stories worth covering before I even had a bowl of cereal! The “news” section of this article is filled with tons of exciting announcements. A lot of dreams came true, wouldn’t you say?
This week’s Retro Wrap-Up celebrates dreams, nightmares and those who master them. (It also celebrates the fact that I really want to play a certain Capcom game that may never find its way to modern gaming devices). In the spirit of sleep (or lack thereof), the oprainfall Retro Commercial Research Team—me—brings you great TV moments from Capcom, Nintendo, SEGA and Konami here in the United States.
Here are the highlights from this past week:
