As part of the upcoming revamp of GenGAME, our first project involves a live local event in the Chicagoland area. In collaboration with the Underground Retrocade, we are proud to announce the first ever GenGAME Arcade World Championships.
Taking place on Saturday May 2nd from 11am until Midnight, the high-score tournament will consist of 8-classic Arcade and Pinball games across different genres and time periods. The 8-games will be revealed the morning of the tournament.
Back in October of last year I made a post indicating that GenGAME was closing its doors and it remained on the front page of the website for several months. After some lengthy discussion with some of the GenGAME team members, along with some detailed planning of some future projects I am working on, we decided to give GenGAME a reboot. We never fully relaunched the website, and we never formally announced any of our future plans. Instead, we just started to trickle out a few articles here and there, with the idea of keeping the front page active for the eventual full-blown relaunch of the website.

It has been over two years since the launch of the Nintendo Wii U and it has been quite a bumpy ride for the Big N. It took quite awhile for the console to gain any traction, but after a very slow start, a slew of decent games started to pile in. I myself picked up a Nintendo Wii U at launch and have played the majority of the hit titles on the system, some more than others. Here is my list of what I think are the 10 best Nintendo Wii U titles to date.

This time on Unannounced Games I want To See Released, I look back at one of my favorite franchises of all time, the classic Mega Man series.
We are just a few weeks away from the release of the New Nintendo 3DS, set for release on February 13th. While we know a lot about the upgrades features, at the moment there is not a single game that is set to release exclusively for the upgraded console. All currently announced 3DS titles will still be playable on the current Nintendo 3DS and 3DS XL. This begs the question, is it worth the purchase? This week the GenGAME staff answers the question as to whether or not each of us will make the splash and purchase the New Nintendo 3DS.
This week on the GenGAMEcast Trevor is joined by co-host George Pekar and resident eSports aficionado Sam Korn to tackle the week in gaming news.

Welcome to a new series of articles where I talk about games that presently don’t exist to the public in any form, but I hope someday that they will. To kick things off, I want to talk about one of my most beloved franchises, Resident Evil.
This week on the GenGAMEcast we have a full house as Joe Conkling unexpectedly drops in to create the “Pentacast” with Sam Korn, Benny Girard, George Pekar and Trevor Magnani. Nintendo went ahead and laid out their spring lineup, the panel discusses their favorite parts of the event. Twitch showcases a library of music that seems to only interest Trevor and The PC gamers on the panel lament on the delay of GTA V’s PC release date. This Week’s intro song can be found here.
