My Favorite Gaming Hidden Gems, Part Two: Dark Summit (2001, PlayStation 2)

I’ve been playing and collecting video games since the early 1980’s, and while there’s something to be said for enjoying the greats of the gaming world, there’s no better feeling for me than picking out something I’d never heard of, throwing it into my system, and being unable to tear myself away from it because […]

My Favorite Gaming Hidden Gems, Part One: Snoopy and the Red Baron (1983, Aari 2600)

I’ve been playing and collecting video games since the early 1980’s, and while there’s something to be said for enjoying the greats of the gaming world, there’s no better feeling for me than picking out something I’d never heard of, throwing it into my system, and being unable to tear myself away from it because […]

A Further Six Absurdly Difficult D&D Adventures (That Are Not ‘Tomb of Horrors’)

This week, I celebrated my birthday. That’s right, Modern Zorker has turned the great four-oh (though I prefer to think of it as “21 with 19 additional levels in the Geek Prestige Class”). To celebrate, I’ve invited one of the best friends I had growing up: Dungeons & Dragons! And because nothing says ‘Happy Birthday!’ […]

PS2 Collecting – Thirteen Must-Have Titles For Any New Collector on a Budget

PS2 collecting, especially if you’re just getting started and didn’t grow up with the system, can be overwhelming: the system’s complete game library clocks in at over eighteen hundred titles, and that’s not counting cross-regional variants where the same game was released in multiple territories. The good news is, not only is the PS2 hardware […]

PS1 Collecting: Thirteen Must-Haves For Anyone on a Budget

If there’s an easier system to pick up and start collecting for than the original Sony PlayStation, I’ve yet to find it. The biggest entry point obstacle to collecting on old school systems is usually buying the console itself, but the PS1 is so ubiquitous and inexpensive it’s absurd. Twenty years ago, putting a PlayStation […]

Classic FMV Game “Tender Loving Care” Released on GOG

Tender Loving Care ruffled some feathers upon its original release in 1998 for two major reasons. First, the game was irritatingly difficult to classify–it looked like other FMV-heavy point-and-click adventure titles like the Gabriel Knight and Phantasmagoria series, but there weren’t any puzzles to solve; it featured multiple endings, but a randomizing element thrown into the […]

The Best Sandbox Game of All Time (Is From The PS2-era)

Free-roaming sandbox-style games come in all shapes and sizes, and there’s no denying the biggest and best-known developer of the go-anywhere, do-anything chaos simulator is Rockstar. Whether they set you down in the middle of a modern-day city the size of New York or Los Angeles in Grand Theft Auto, a private prep school in […]

Radio Shack’s Massive Vintage Auction

Radio Shack’s closing down over 1,000 retail locations across the country this weekend as they transition their operations from physical stores to online distribution. The biggest building on the chopping block: their company headquarters. After clearing out the basement and digging through the archives, they’ve assembled thousands of items into over seven hundred individual lots […]

Top 3 Fighting Games of the 16-bit Era (Top 3 Tuesday)

If you don’t associate the 16-bit era with fighting games, you’re either an amnesiac or throwing off the curve for this site’s age demographic. If, as I suspect, you are a gamer who finds himself on the wrong side of thirty, then you’re already formulating a list in your head from the topic title. Thanks […]

Six More Absurdly Difficult D&D Adventures (That Are Not Tomb of Horrors)

Before I get started, I have just one thing to say: you’re a bunch of sadists. All of you. I compiled a list of half a dozen of the deadliest old school Dungeons & Dragons adventures to ever see print, and you not only ate it up but shared it with your buddies and gave it […]
