PS1 Collecting: Thirteen Must-Haves For Anyone on a Budget

If there’s an easier system to pick up and start collecting for than the original Sony PlayStation, I’ve yet to find it. The biggest entry point obstacle to collecting on old school systems is usually buying the console itself, but the PS1 is so ubiquitous and inexpensive it’s absurd. Twenty years ago, putting a PlayStation […]

From Dinosaurs to Alligators: The Evolution from Retro Gaming to eSports

Looking at the popularity of eSports today, some would wrongly assume that audiences’ obsession with “faster” and “newer” would mean that retro games are heading towards extinction. However, that’s a misconception. Rather, it is as if dinosaurs are now living side by side with their modern-day alligator descendants. eSports have arguable been in existence for decades, […]

Five Gaming Licenses that Missed the Mark

Licensing is a staple of gaming. It has been since the Atari 2600 days. Licensing is going nowhere as companies realize they can halfheartedly work on a game, slap a license on it, and expect to at least make back their investment if not a tidy profit to boot. I have collected five licensed games […]

The Best Sandbox Game of All Time (Is From The PS2-era)

Free-roaming sandbox-style games come in all shapes and sizes, and there’s no denying the biggest and best-known developer of the go-anywhere, do-anything chaos simulator is Rockstar. Whether they set you down in the middle of a modern-day city the size of New York or Los Angeles in Grand Theft Auto, a private prep school in […]

The Grumpy Git: Has the Gaming Industry Got Any Ideas Left?

Okay people, if you don’t know who I am, I’m the Grumpy Git, it is Monday, and I have decided it is time to look at the world from a more jaded angle. Feel free to disagree with me vehemently in the comments. Okay, on to today’s topic… “Has the gaming industry got any ideas […]

Top 3 “Desert Island” Games (Top 3 Tuesday)

I have to say, when I saw MichaelB’s Top 3 Tuesday topic this week, I was confused. This appeared to be the one that broke him. I mean, really, top three games featuring desert islands? As if that wasn’t strange, the video’s thumbnail features Mike Tyson’s Punch-Out!! which, as far as I can tell, occurs somewhere […]

Tomb Raider Playable in Browser, Work in Progress

When you think of retro gaming you must realize it is a subjective term. What is “retro” to me, being born in 1976, may be different to someone who was born in 2002. For me, the original Tomb Raider is retro. I remember seeing the first screen shots of Core Design’s new 3D adventure, starring […]

Sine Mora Ex Nintendo Switch

Sine Mora Ex on Nintendo Switch versus Playstation 3

I am a huge fan of scrolling shooters. I suck at them but I like things that go boom in pretty explosions. Years ago, though, about 25 years or so, I was really good at these, never able to one man any single game but still able to beat man with the allotted lives. Years […]

From “Tennis on TV” to the Global eSports Phenomenon of Today

When would you say that video games first emerged–the ’80s, maybe the ’70s at a push? In fact, you’d have to go back to the 1940s for the true origins of the video game, and need a computer that fills up half a room to play them.
