Revenge of the License: Densha de Go! Series

Here’s a new twist for this column. Instead of looking at a game that takes its inspiration from a comic, film, television show, cartoon, or book, today I’m going to look at a series which licenses its game play from the best source on Earth: real life. In this case, miles and miles of railroad […]

Retro Consoles Untapped Marketing Avenue for Modern Games

It is getting harder and harder for modern game publishers to get their games in the hands of players, er on their consoles/computers is more like it but you get the point.  To get current generation games into the psyche of players is not so easy anymore- traditional advertising has proven less and less viable […]


10 Classics that Let You Build Your Own Levels before Super Mario Maker

To say Super Mario Maker is a smash hit release is quite an understatement.  The 2D sandbox game had reached a million units sold worldwide in about 20 days, according to reports.  This is interesting considering the hell Nintendo constantly gets for the Wii U, something that goes back to the Nintendo 64 days and […]


Portland Retro Gaming Expo to Debut The Realm of No! A Text Adventure for Atari 2600

It is well known that the Atari 2600 was strictly a gaming console, there were no accessories like a full keyboard or disk drive released for it.  That is not stopping Michael Thomasson and his company, Good Deal Games, from releasing a full text based adventure title on Atari’s classic console.  Fans of Choose Your […]


Real3DOPlayer Brings Full Speed 3DO Emulation to Android

Today in Retro Gaming: F1 Pole Position 64

There’s something to be said for coming in first. While people remember who won a given race, ask them who came in second and they’ll either have to think about it for a minute or else admit they don’t know. When it comes to sports, the gold medal might as well be everything and second […]


RGM Interview with RETRO VGS Team (unofficial copy from audio interview)

We have covered the RETRO Video Game System for some time here on Retro Gaming Magazine.  What began life as a $99 classic styled console has morphed in a $300+ gaming monster that has the potential be your final “retro” console purchase, if its IndieGoGo campaign is successful.  The last few months have seen many […]


The One Accessory Every Gamer Needs

Are you a gamer? I’m going to assume you said yes because you’re reading an article on a page called “Retro Gaming Magazine”. I’m also going to make certain other assumptions about you. You need to breathe. You need to sleep (no matter how much it interferes with your speed run practice). You need to […]

RETRO VGS Sees Immense Social Media Backlash as Crowdfunding Project Begins

The RETRO VGS is to be a new gaming console that hearkens back to the early days of gaming, before on-line capabilities, before patches and in app purchases seeped in.  Many of us remember this as the days of the 32-Bit era (Sega Saturn, PSOne, Nintendo 64) and earlier- more fondly at about the Super […]
