Virtual Currencies and How They Have Evolved

Money makes the world go round–not just in real-life, but in gaming universes as well. Gaming currencies can often go completely unnoticed, or they are simply something that players take for granted. It isn’t often central to the main storyline, but gaming money often sets the rules for what you can and can’t do within […]

No Credit Gaming Issue 2

Nintendo didn’t entice me this generation.  Intentionally having inferior hardware plus stopping gamers from gaming if they do not accept the latest firmware.. well, that means I had every reason to pass.  Wii U didn’t have the impact despite Zelda, Metroid, Mario and, er, more Mario?  Goodbye Wii U!   More articles on the Wii […]

No Credit Gaming Issue 1

  Welcome to the first issue of: “No Credit Gaming”.  This is my raw, badly drawn viewpoint as a gamer and retro game developer.  Just like DMCA has become a method to kill fan projects and dissenting opinions, licensing is also suspect.  I’ve found that development forums can look down on those who ask questions […]

The old saying “curiosity killed the cat” might be true in everyday life, but when it comes to the tech world and gaming the more accurate expression is: “Complexity killed the cat”.

Nintendo Potentially Behind Removing Nintendo Power Magazine From Archive.org

It was just recently that I reported that Nintendo Power was available on Archive.org for free.  Now, I am reporting that Nintendo has followed through on a second, unforeseen, cease and desist threat (the first was the AM2R removal).  Apparently Nintendo has ordered the first 13 years of Nintendo Power Magazine to be removed from […]

Revenge of the License: Dragon Magazine Archive

No, the Dragon Magazine Archive is not a game, it’s something better–it’s knowledge. Following up on last week’s absurdly difficult adventures article, we’re keeping with the D&D theme and presenting this look at how a concern over copyright led one of the most awesome pieces of software ever to arrive on store shelves to vanish just as quickly […]

Month of August: Oddballs in Gaming!

Almost everyone in the world has experienced having an oddball or two in their family. That one strange uncle we never speak about until the family reunion. Perhaps even that quiet cousin who collects the bones of dead animals in his garage! Well, videogames are no different to people in this regard. A lot of […]

Bonds shared with the Virtual World Pt.2

There is a part one for this article! Seriously though, if you haven’t read it you should read the first part. While, the video presented in the first part of this article shed some light on the characters that we love and cherish for being who they are. Fleshed out individuals with goals and dreams, […]

Bantha Poodoo: The Eight Worst Retro Star Wars Games

It’s been ten years since the theatrical release of “Revenge of the Sith”, and once again the Star Wars machine is making the jump to light speed. The license has been around pretty much since the dawn of the home console. MobyGames pegs the total number of games based on the property at 165 as […]
