8-Bit Civilizations Commodore 64

Civilization Coming to Commodore 64 in 8-Bit Civilizations

When Sid Meier finished the first Civilization I have to wonder, did he ever entertain the thought of porting it to the Commodore 64? No matter, as developer Fabian Hertel is doing just that, well close anyhow, with 8-Bit Civilizations. This is one of those head scratching releases that you think simply won’t work. The […]

Wacky Wednesday: The “Doom”ed Trilobyte

Prior to the 1990s, people looked at the IBM PC as a joke of a gaming machine. Long diskette load times, clunky processor speeds, and a choice of CGA or EGA graphics were no match for the fast-moving sprites of the NES or arcade-quality graphics of the Sega Genesis. But 1990 saw the release of […]

Top 3 Games Left Off the NES Classic (Top 3 Tuesday)

He promised he’d be back, and he is! Arnold’s back in Terminator 2: Judgment Day, which is just one of the many hundreds of games I’m choosing not to write about in response to MichaelBtheGameGenie’s latest Top 3 Tuesday video: Top 3 Games Left Off the NES Classic (which you should totally open in another window […]

With its blend of old-school science fiction and horror set within the backdrop of the 1980s, the television show hit a cord with many viewers who grew up grew during that era. And if you’re a fan of the Commodore 64–which, […]

Are Videogames Being Art Stopping Anyone From Purchasing Them?

Emotions, expression, and deep thoughts are concepts often invoked by games.  Similar notions can be obtained from art such as paintings, films, and sculptures. But are games truly an art? The Internet has been set on fire with this argument with sides arguing for both reasons why videogames are, or are not, considered as such […]

Colour Personal Computer – A Look at the New Amstrad CPC Fanzine

Do you remember the 8-bit videogaming heyday of the 1980s? Perhaps you also remember the neat little fanzines that were being produced at the time? While these fanzines were obviously not up to commercial standard–often photocopied black and white pages with very little in the way of images–they did convey a certain tone that was […]

Princess Maker 2 Retrospective

A troubled production and problems during release ensured we would not see this game in the U.S. until 2016. A game where you can have the potential to raise a godly or demonic child, it was fully translated when it was axed. But what exactly makes Princess Maker 2 so unique? What is it about […]
