Sword of Iffrit New Atari 2600 Game in Beta

New Atari 2600 games seem to be falling out of the sky. Most of them are mock-ups only featuring no gameplay and certainly not running on actual hardware (old school limitations suck). One rather interesting new game that is currently in beta that caught my attention is Sword of Iffrit. This appears to be an […]

Five Gaming Licenses that Missed the Mark

Licensing is a staple of gaming. It has been since the Atari 2600 days. Licensing is going nowhere as companies realize they can halfheartedly work on a game, slap a license on it, and expect to at least make back their investment if not a tidy profit to boot. I have collected five licensed games […]

The Best Sandbox Game of All Time (Is From The PS2-era)

Free-roaming sandbox-style games come in all shapes and sizes, and there’s no denying the biggest and best-known developer of the go-anywhere, do-anything chaos simulator is Rockstar. Whether they set you down in the middle of a modern-day city the size of New York or Los Angeles in Grand Theft Auto, a private prep school in […]

Fans of Atari have plenty of things to get excited about. There are at least five Atari themed pieces of hardware on the way this year. While there is not a lot of information available there are a few tidbits out there (we collected them all right here for you).

Top 3 Fighting Games of the 16-bit Era (Top 3 Tuesday)

If you don’t associate the 16-bit era with fighting games, you’re either an amnesiac or throwing off the curve for this site’s age demographic.

Star Wars – from Movie to Arcade to Atari ST

Today being May the 4th (aka Star Wars Day), I thought I’d mark the occasion by looking back at one of the first Star Wars video games which brought simulated science fiction movie action down off the silver screen and into arcades and homes.

The Grumpy Git: Has the Gaming Industry Got Any Ideas Left?

Okay people, if you don’t know who I am, I’m the Grumpy Git, it is Monday, and I have decided it is time to look at the world from a more jaded angle. Feel free to disagree with me vehemently in the comments. Okay, on to today’s topic… “Has the gaming industry got any ideas […]

Top 3 “Desert Island” Games (Top 3 Tuesday)

I have to say, when I saw MichaelB’s Top 3 Tuesday topic this week, I was confused. This appeared to be the one that broke him. I mean, really, top three games featuring desert islands? As if that wasn’t strange, the video’s thumbnail features Mike Tyson’s Punch-Out!! which, as far as I can tell, occurs somewhere […]

Notorious Sega CD Game Night Trap to be Released on PS4

To celebrate the 25th anniversary of the Sega CD cult classic Night Trap, Limited Run Games will be releasing a remastered version sometime this spring. 

The Unofficial SNES/Super Famicom: a Visual Compendium Kickstarter Could Reach £500,000

A new Kickstarter campaign was launched last week. That fact alone isn’t really big news in the retrogaming scene anymore, or that it is a Nintendo book, again, or that it is from Bitmap Books, again. The news is that The unofficial SNES/Super Famicom: a visual compendium Kickstarter campaign might, if it keeps its momentum […]
