What if Pac-Man was released today Atari 2600 IAP retro

What If: Pac-Man Was Released on Modern Platforms

The “What if” column is just that, what if’s and imaginary scenarios in gaming that we find interesting and unique.  One such scenario concerns Pac-Man.  More directly, what if Pac-Man was released on modern platforms that have Internet connectivity (I know the Atari 2600 had a modem but that was different), multiplayer (not just locally) […]

Flappy Bird Super Grafx

New Game: Flappy Bird Ported to Super Grafx

It is getting to the point where Flappy Bird, or clones of it, have nearly reached every conceivable platform that it can hit.  Now, we can scratch off an unlikely candidate in the NEC Super Grafx (what is left though?).  This version of Flappy Bird does offer some unique additions to the tired, and infuriating, […]

Eek the Cat Box Art

Revenge of the License: Eek! The Cat

There’s a part of me that wants so badly to give this game a pass, because “Eek! The Cat” was something I enjoyed watching in my pre-high school days. None dare call it groundbreaking, but “Eek! The Cat” was an enjoyable way to kill twenty minutes, and managed to attract an awful lot of celebrity […]

Flappy Atari 2600 retro Atari Age retrogaming 2

New Game: Flappy Now Available for the Atari 2600 Video Computer System

Flappy Bird is still going strong, just now more entrenched in the retro community.  There was already one version of this title for the Atari 2600 called Flappo Bird (covered here).  Of the two, Flappy is definitely the better looking version of Flappy Bird, the question is, does anyone still care? 

Hello Kitty Box Art

Revenge of the License: Hello Kitty Cube Frenzy

The RGM offices are quiet bastions of sanity in an otherwise crazy world. Here, gamers work out their differences without resorting to immature, demeaning tasks like bologna-eating contests or challenging one another to come up with the largest number (‘Infinity’ is not a number, Michael. –ed). So if you think my game is weak, or […]

Elysian Shadows Steam Greenlit Sega Dreamcast

Update: Elysian Shadows is Greenlit, Will be Coming to Popular Distribution Service

It is no secret that Elysian Shadows is a popular game, part due to the fact that the developers are not scared to release on older platforms (Sega Dreamcast) that are fan favorites.  Along with the insight to release on a popular retro console, the developers are going to be hitting the Ouya (another Kickstarter […]

Kickstarter: Component Cables for SNES and Genesis Now Underway

As time passes, it becomes more difficult to get your classic systems hooked up to newer equipment. HDTVs want HDMI or Component video input, and if you’re stuck with the standard Yellow/Red/White Composite cables that came with your 16-bit system, you might be out of luck. No Super Castlevania IV or Sonic 2 for you […]

A Sound of Thunder Box

Revenge of the License: A Sound of Thunder

It’s a trope I’m guilty of trotting out far too often: video games based on film licenses are nothing more than excuses for some two-bit studio to make an enormous influx of money without resorting to looting armored cars or Nigerian prince email scams. And more often than not, I’m right. Wanton cash grabs by […]

Spawn Box Art

Revenge of the License: Todd McFarlane’s Spawn: The Video Game

OK, so it’s not exactly designed to scare the sap who picks up the control pad, but I think we can agree: a game about an undead justicar who roams trash-strewn alleys and frequently mixes it up with an immortal demon clown calling itself “The Violator” is not chasing the same crowd as Mary-Kate and […]

Disaster Report Box Art

Retro Gaming Halloween Style, Part Five: Disaster Report

Yeah, yeah, everybody makes their lists about scary, creepy, or flat-out weird games to play each October and we’re not about to buck the trend. But we’re going to assume you’re a retro gamer who’s read enough to know the big franchises everybody else writes about. Because if you’ve picked up a controller in the […]
