South Park PC Game Box

Revenge of the License: South Park

It took sixteen years, but we finally got a South Park game worth playing. South Park: The Stick of Truth is an utterly hilarious mash-up of childhood fantasy gone awry and modern gaming tropes. It’s a straight up legit way to kill several hours over the course of a long weekend, and it plays like […]

Wacky Wednesday: ASCII Grip

Suppose you designed a video game controller that was meant to be used one-handed: how might you go about marketing this new technological marvel? Well, you could discuss the merits of using said one-handed controller with regards to helping you map while playing an RPG, take notes during an adventure game, or even drink your […]

Time Trax Box

Revenge of the License: Time Trax

“These are the journals of Darien Lambert, Captain, Fugitive Retrieval Section, A.D. 2193.” With those words, we were introduced to actor Dale Midkiff’s action hero persona: a police officer from the future, sent back through time to retrieve Dr. Sahmbi, a renegade scientist using the past to hide from the law, and a cadre of […]

Predator 2 Box

Revenge of the License: Predator 2

What does it take to make an awesome Predator story? Easy: a strong, likable protagonist, a bevy of secondary characters to serve as involuntary spinal surgery candidates, and someone uttering the phrase, “You are one ugly motherfriender!” when re-dubbed for home television viewers with delicate sensibilities. What does it take to make an awesome Predator […]

RETRO Video Game System and the Looming Identity Crisis Within

I have covered the RETRO Video Game System (RETRO VGS) several times here on Retro Gaming Magazine in the recent past.  This is a purportedly new “retro” themed console in development.  The RETRO VGS is co-headed by Mike Kennedy, also founder of RETRO Magazine, which is expected to expand the overall scope of the RETRO […]

Revenge of the License: Deathtrap Dungeon

Quick show of hands: how many growing up in the 1980s recall Fighting Fantasy game books? These little works of genius were the brainchild of British designers Steve Jackson and Ian Livingstone and spawned a whole slew of imitators. These books took what was already awesome about the Choose Your Own Adventure novels (the idea […]

Tentative Price Points for RETRO VGS Released and First Gameplay of the First Game Shown

It is looking like a June or July announcement for the RETRO Video Game System going to Kickstarter to look for crowd funding support.  With that in mind, and the fact I like “analyzing” things versus re-writing news items from other sites, I am back with another article on the RETRO VGS (it is not […]

Black Lamp Comes to the Atari Jaguar Thanks to Homebrew Developer

Black Lamp is an action platform title that was released on the Atari ST, Commodore Amiga, Commodore 64 and ZX Spectrum computers back in the late 80’s.  The story of Black Lamp will sound familiar to anyone that has watched many fantasy movies, or played The Horde (a more recent adventure title).  Black Lamp is […]

First Game for Retro Video Game System Announced, First Screenshot Here

The Retro Video Game System is an interesting enigma in gaming right now.  Interesting because it us purported to be a new console using the Atari Jaguar molds (the Atari name/insignia will be removed) but no one, outside of the core team, knows much of anything about it.  We do know that Collectorvision are working […]

Cliffhanger Box Art

Revenge of the License: Cliffhanger

There are some games for which the Internet just cannot seem to calm its collective, relentless hate-boner. At some point, it becomes ingrained into our gaming culture that certain games suck, everyone knows it, and there’s no need to play them for yourself to decide. The committee voted it into law back before you were […]
