New Game: Vectrex Receives Two Christmas Themed Games

Throughout gaming there have been only a few “dedicated” Christmas games released.  There was Christmas Nights on the Sega Saturn and there is a Christmas themed Jazz Jackrabbit game, I believe.  That is pretty much it.  Sure there are games that feature ice levels and the like but not too many that have a snowy, […]

Doom 3DO First Person Shooter Retro Game

Source Code for Doom 3DO Released

Doom was THE first person shooter for a long time, even after Quake was released Doom was still holding its own with gamers.  Doom hit many platforms from the PC where it originated to less powerful consoles such as the Super Nintendo and even the Sega Saturn.  The Playstation versions were pretty darn good and […]

Ralph Baer Father of Video Games

Ralph Baer, The Father of Video Games, Passes Away at 92 Years Old, Interview Reposted

Five years ago I had the fortune of getting in contact with Ralph Baer, affectionately known as the “Father of Video Games”.  I conducted an interview with him, which is available below.  This interview was originally made available on another site but they have seen fit to remove the content I made available, including the […]

Gaming Quickie: The ‘E’ Rating and the ESRB

The Entertainment Software Rating Board (ESRB) was created in 1994 in an effort to prevent the US government from stepping in and developing its own rating system for video games, something developers and publishers alike knew would create all sorts of problems–we’re talking about a group which less than ten years ago included a Senator […]

In Development: Tiny Knight by Collectorvision

Tiny Knight is a work in progress from Collectorvision, so early that we have only gotten one screen for it.  Collectorvision are known for their support of defunct platforms with new games that push the hardware.  Tiny Knight is hard to peg as to what platform it will be released on but it appears to […]

Ur-Quan Masters HD Star Control II 3DO 3

Game Mod: Ur-Quan Masters Now Available in HD

Okay, who remembers the 3DO Interactive Multiplayer console?  The one from the early to mid-90’s that was going to revolutionize gaming with all kinds of things that didn’t come true.  One thing did come true on Trip Hawkens’ little console that he got everyone else to manufacture- we got one hell of a great game […]

Bandit Gaming- New, Better, Mario Bros Coming to the Atari 2600

The original Mario Bros that hit the Atari 2600 was less than stellar, to be honest.  It was a serviceable version but it was lacking in many ways due to the capabilities of the hardware.  Homebrew fans are working on fixing this, near, travesty, with a new and better Mario Bros for the Atari 2600.  […]

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 […]
