Billy Mitchell, King of Kong Co-Star, May Have Mislead Donkey Kong Scores

It seems that Billy Mitchell is the pivot point for controversy of some kind within the gaming world. His chosen game is Donkey Kong of course, as detailed in the “King of Kong” movie where Mitchell’s scores went head to head with those of Steve Weibe (neither hold the number one spot any longer).

A Retro Gamer’s 12 Days Of Christmas: The Eighth Day, Root Beer Tapper

On the eighth day of Christmas my true love sent to me, eight maids a-milking I am a big believer in the idea that happiness is created through experiences.

A Retro Gamer’s 12 Days Of Christmas: The Sixth Day, Joust

On the sixth day of Christmas my true love sent to me, six geese a laying. As inexplicable the bird theme is with this carol, the lyric “six geese a laying” could have been the inspiration for the game Joust. Albeit, during the better part of a drunken eggnog bender. Just think of it, a […]

I remember many a Christmas morning tearing into a festively wrapped ninja turtle action playset box and happily facing off against the […]

Crime Fighters Arcade Review, a Fighting Game so Cheap You Cannot Stop Playing

Konami used to make some great games. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (arcade and home versions other than the original NES game). Contra, Castlevania, Gradius, and X-Men (arcade) to name a few.
