What if the Sims Were Done in the Style of Pokemon?

Interesting thought, what if the Sims were done in the style of Pokemon?  I wonder.  Well, neither you nor I have to wonder too much about it because Youtube personality, Hat-Loving Gamer, has done all of the work for us.  Hat-Loving Gamer has taken the idea behind the Sims and combined it with the world […]


Five Great Hunters in Video Games

Let’s face it, the world is full of dangerous, blood-thirsty things. In many ways, it’s a wonder humanity has survived as long as it has without being horribly murdered by the wildlife and monsters that comprise this wonderful blue ball we’re on. Few of us human beings have the guts to face the things that go […]

Back in the 90s, this was probably the single most heart-breaking moment in gaming. Now, I'm more concerned on where everyone's mouths went.

Three Cases in How Good Games Age Poorly

The concept of age comes up an awful lot when it comes to media. When people comment on the idea of age, they usually mean how well that piece of media holds up when one revisits it, or how meaningful it is in a modern perspective. While for most other forms of media, it’s a […]

Another title that is going to be debuted at the Portland Retro Gaming Expo is Clyde’s Revenge for the Atari 2600.  This is another limited release by Good Deal Games and Michael Thomasson, GDG owner/founder.  What is unique about Clyde’s Revenge is, well, you are taking control of the bad guy, specifically the red ghost […]

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 […]


Sega Dreamcast Receives New Puzzle Game- Fruit’Y, not a Bejeweled Clone

Okay, I like Match 3 games more than most gamers out there- my phone has at least two installed at any given time.  There is a point though that we reach (well, reached years ago) where innovation is stifled and EVERYONE jumps on the latest bandwagon that worked for someone else.  I can safely say […]


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

Ah, the 3DO, a console that will forever be remembered as either a system ahead of its time or just an oddity released between the SNES and Playstation.  No matter what you think of the 3DO, it was still an interesting system that went places that many gaming companies simply refused (though Sega and Atari […]
