Take Down Nazi Forces in Wolfenstein 3D on PC – Today in History – May 5th, 1992

Okay, back in the early 1990’s PC gaming was COMPLETELY different than it is today.  We actually went to stores and bought games.  We didn’t have online capabilities standard in games.  We barely had modem, land line, multiplayer.  Direct, in the same room multiplayer was common around this time.  We also would call or write, […]

Jazz Jackrabbit Jumps Past Mario on PC – Today in History – May 3rd, 1994

While today 2D side scrolling action platform titles are a regular occurrence, they are still not as popular they were on consoles 20+ years ago.  Jazz Jackrabbit was not perfect but it was lightyears ahead of similar titles on personal computers of the time.  If you were a fan of action platform titles and only […]

Awful In Hindsight: PC Accelerator Issue 1’s Cover Story

PC Accelerator (abbreviated to PCXL within the mag) was a short-lived US publication devoted to computer games. Sporting a less-mature, more attitude-oriented style than other ‘zines, PC Accelerator was essentially the coverage of PC Gamer mixed with the male wish fulfillment fantasy embodied in Maxim. It launched in September 1998 under the tagline, “Bigger, Better, […]

Revenge of the License: Trump Castle II (PC)

“Michael,” said my editor with a cruel, evil twinkle in his eye, “have I got a dream assignment for you.” I steeled my nerves and through sheer force of will managed to avoid the loud, noisy gulp which I have learned only fuels Carl’s sadistic side. He wrapped his arm around my shoulder, buddy-like. “What’s […]

The Five Dumbest Mistakes I’ve Made As a Gamer

Everybody makes mistakes. We’re human, it’s OK to admit our flaws and imperfections. Most of them, hopefully, are momentary lapses of judgement: small errors that can easily be rectified or made right. Then there are the times you do something so moronic it makes you question your beliefs about how intelligent, sane, and sexy you […]

Bandit Gaming – Super Mario Bros Texas Instruments 99/4a Port

Okay, Nintendo shot down Princess Rescue on the Atari 2600.  That has not stopped other fans from porting Super Mario Bros to other platforms.  One such platform is the Texas Instruments 99/4a computer.  What we have here is obviously not an official port but a pretty interesting fan creation.

Diablo II Receives Patch Improving Performance Compatibility

Blizzard are an enigma in gaming.  When other companies are abandoning their previous releases each year, Blizzard is just getting started.  Take Diablo II for example.  This is a 16 year old game- Blizzard are definitely not making money off of gamers that bought it back then.  The last official patch released for Diablo II […]
