Kingdom of Loathing —An Adventurer is You!

You know, if there’s one thing I’ve noticed in a lot of MMOs, it’s that a lot of them tend to use indirect humor. That is, they tend to use puns and references to make the quests, npcs, and items a little more memorable. Very few MMOs try to go out of their way to […]

Street Fight World to Bring Street Fighter II and Alpha to Atari 2600

Street Fighter II was the one game that sealed the success of the Super Nintendo in the early 90’s.  Sega simply had nothing to compete with it other than pitiful attempts that are best not mentioned in the same breath.  Capcom knew they had a gold mine on their hands based on the success of […]

Alex Kidd is coming to the TI-99/4A Computer Thanks to Homebrew Developer

The classic, and completely forgotten by Sega, game Alex Kidd is being ported to the Texas Instruments 99/4A computer.  This is not an official port but one by a homebrew developer who just happens to be a huge Alex Kidd fanatic.  Some things were sacrificed for this port, which is to be expected as the […]

Classic Nonogram Game PixlCross Reminds us of Mario’s Picross on Wii U and Computers

Way back on the Game Boy, around 20 years ago, Nintendo took another chance with their leading star (back then it was normal).  Nonogram’s, aka Hanjie Picross and Griddlers, are logic puzzles that create a simple image (recent variations have brought this type of game into the 3rd dimension).  Mario’s Picross is probably the most […]

Lara Croft Go Comes to Android and iOS, Remembers Windows Phone Too

The Tomb Raider series is one that has been all over the place as far as the fans are concerned.  The first one took gaming by storm, the second was “alright” and the third is quite forgettable.  The series just goes up and down from there all the way up to current generation platforms.  Recently, […]

Mutant League Football, Sega Genesis Classic, Reborn as Mutant Football League for Playstation 4, Modern Platforms

This is a unique news item, one that is pretty interesting for me as I figured the original was to be the start of something pretty cool.  Sadly, we only ever saw one Mutant League Football game and one hockey title in this style before the series was pretty much dropped by Electronic Arts.  During […]

Marble Mountain Reminds Us of another Classic Retro Title, Marble Madness, on Steam Greenlight

Marble Madness, a classic arcade title that was fairly popular back around the end of the Nintendo Entertainment System days into the early Sega Genesis era.  Back then “isometric” titles were somewhat all the rage with game developers.  Isometric viewpoints allowed a bit of depth that previously was not capable on the hardware of the […]

River City Ransom Underground Awaiting Approval on Steam Greenlight

If you want to see River City Ransom: Underground on Steam then you better show some support for it.  It is not enough that it was a success on Kickstarter, which matters little to Valve.  What matters to them is your votes and support.  For those that do not know about River City: Underground, it […]

Amazing Action Platform Title, Majesty of Sprites, Comes to the Commodore Plus/4

When you think of gaming in the style of Super Mario Brothers or Sonic the Hedgehog you probably would never see the Commodore Plus/4 make your list of platforms.  Hell, Commodore engineers are probably reading this and thinking, “What the hell?  Console style action platform gaming on the Plus/4?  No way.”  Yes way.  Majesty of […]
