Five Commodore 64 Homebrew Games That Rock

The Commodore 64 was a gaming computer from the 80’s that just wouldn’t quit.  Initially not intended to be a gaming computer, the fans simply made it one through the openness it offered.  Commodore was not one to shy away from this series of events, though they did continue on their original plan for it […]

Furry RPG is a New Super Nintendo Role Playing Game Currently in Development

New games for classic consoles are usually just hacks of previously released titles, occasionally we get an all new game.  Furry RPG is just that, a brand new game that will be powered by a Mode 7 heavy engine that is also all new.  Ramsis on the NESDev.com forums is the person handling this new […]

SNES CD-ROM Prototype Found, Potentially Fake Creation – Edit Now with Video

Right now, there is a lot of hoopla going on about the recently made public discovery of an SNES CD-ROM prototype that carries the Sony logo.  What is interesting about this news is that there, at one time in history, was to be a Super Nintendo CD-ROM system that Sony was indeed working on.  It […]

Commodore 65 Prototype Retro Hardware

Work on FPGA based Commodore 65 Continues, Early 2016 Release on Schedule

The Commodore 65 was to be a major hardware upgrade to the venerable Commodore 64.  Scheduled to be called the C64DX/C65 and set for an early 90’s launch, Commodore pulled the plug rather abruptly and shelved the unit due to unforeseen rising manufacturing costs and probably due to their own success.  During the period that […]

Half-Life and Quake 2 Engine Ported to Atari Falcon, Work in Progress with Video

The Fifteen Most Difficult NES Games (That Are Not Battletoads)

As the tropes go, there’s hard, and then there’s Nintendo Hard. The distinction is easily understood by anyone who grew up in the 8-bit era, but the tradition continues to this day with games like Super Meat Boy and I Wanna Be The Guy. Nintendo Hard games aren’t made that way by flipping a difficulty […]

Legend of Zelda 3rd Quest Being Developed by Fans

Ah, the classic Nintendo 64 Zelda games were quite interesting, they were the first foray into the 3D realm for the franchise and for many, they were system sellers.  Fans showed enough support for these two 64-Bit games that Nintendo re-released them on the Gamecube (and later the Virtual Console).  Now a group of fans […]

Target Store

Target Tuesday – Shadow Master

Neither Retro Gaming Magazine nor any member of our staff is associated with the Target chain of retail outlets. Michael just thinks this particular series of ads from the 90’s featuring “Respected coach and video gameologist Tom ‘The Thumb’ Blake” which ran in GamePro magazine was amusing. Thus we’re going to feature one every Tuesday […]
