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 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.

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 […]

Top 3 “Desert Island” Games (Top 3 Tuesday)

I have to say, when I saw MichaelB’s Top 3 Tuesday topic this week, I was confused. This appeared to be the one that broke him. I mean, really, top three games featuring desert islands? As if that wasn’t strange, the video’s thumbnail features Mike Tyson’s Punch-Out!! which, as far as I can tell, occurs somewhere […]

Top 3 Stand-Alone GB Games Based On Classic Series (Top 3 Tuesday)

Sometimes one is capable of dealing with life’s shenanigans. Other times life starts punching below the belt. This is my excuse for failure to comment on the last couple of Top 3 Tuesday videos put out by MichaelBtheGameGenie. Enough is enough: it is time to write! This week, MichaelB proposed “Top 3 Game Boy Games […]

Top 3 Arcade Games Without Good Home Ports (Top 3 Tuesday)

Every developer crowed they were “bringing the arcade experience home” whenever a smash-hit arcade game received a console translation. Until the PS1 era, most of us took these boasts in stride because we knew in our hearts there was no way the games we loved in the arcade were going to look or sound the […]
