Crazy Taxi Gazillionaire

How the Greats Have Fallen – Crazy Taxi Gazillionaire on Android

Is it me or is Sega following in the footsteps of Konami lately? Konami made a Pachinko machine out of Castlevania awhile back. Now, Sega have taken Crazy Taxi and gone completely in a different direction than fans would probably have wanted. Yep, they took the core idea behind Crazy Taxi, making money, and pretty much dropped most of the other things that made the game unique. Crazy Taxi Gazillionaire does have the characters and such, just you are no longer fighting for customers.

Neo Geo Metal Slug

GOG Releases 15 Neo Geo Classics, Most Have Official Support for Linux

If you are a retrogaming fan then you know the name, Neo Geo. This arcade machine turned home console was quite an attraction back in the 1990’s. You were literally getting the arcade game when you bought the home version. Unfortunately, that included the arcade game price too. Thankfully, as time went on, we got decent home ports to consoles such as the Super Nintendo and Sega Genesis on up to the Playstation series of consoles and more. Now, we have GOG.com releasing 15 Neo Geo Classics, Linux support is available out of the box for about half of these while the rest have “unsupported Linux” capability.

Haunted Halloween 86 NES

Haunted Halloween 85 and 86, Horror Homebrew Games for NES

It is not all that often that I get to cover something really cool. I know, a lot of you have already gotten, beaten, and probably shelved Haunted Halloween 85 but what about Haunted Halloween 86? This article is more for the people new to homebrew/independent development of games, those that are old hats in this category could probably learn something new also though.

The Grumpy Git : I HATE Monopoly!

 

Well here we are again at Monday again. The miserable day of the week no-one enjoys, so in the tradition of Misery loves company. I am here to make sure you have a total loathing for it.

So today I am going to take a slight punt at the Parker Brothers all time top selling board game Monopoly and probably a few others while I am at it. Feel like disagreeing with me. Let me know in the comments.

Radio Shack’s Massive Vintage Auction

Radio Shack’s closing down over 1,000 retail locations across the country this weekend as they transition their operations from physical stores to online distribution. The biggest building on the chopping block: their company headquarters. After clearing out the basement and digging through the archives, they’ve assembled thousands of items into over seven hundred individual lots and handed them off to UBid Estate and Auction Services. They’re up for sale now.

Cave Story+ Nintendo Switch

Why Cave Story+ on Nintendo Switch Will Fail

Ah, good old Cave Story. A title that gamers have been enjoying on various platforms for years now. We have seen this game released on the Nintendo Wii, Nintendo DSi, Nintendo 3DS, PC platforms and then a myriad of fan ports to Linuz, AmigaOS 4, the TI graphing calculator, Genesis and PSP among many others. The point is, I don’t think this is going to be a system seller for Nintendo, even with the “+” additions included in the Nintendo Switch version. What is sad is most of those new add-ins are old hat too for the series. Gamers have seen this before.

Slot Games and Arcade Classics – A Match Made in Heaven?

Online casino games, particularly slots, are among the most popular forms of gambling. Perhaps the reason for this is because there are thousands of different games out there with varied themes to attract a wide demographic of players. Common subject matter includes comic books like the Avengers and well-known musicians like Michael Jackson. According to the Guardian, the largest proportion of gamblers are between the ages of 35 and 64, so slot game developers are also using nostalgic elements to entice players. Here we take a look at some classic games that have inspired the casino machines of today.

Sega to Focus on Reviving Major IPs

Based on its Road to 2020 investor plan, Sega is planning to promote global development by shifting its focus to be more IP-centric. The most tantalizing part of an otherwise mundane PowerPoint is where Sega plans a “Revival of past IPs and active utilization of external IPs”.

The Grumpy Git: Retrocomputing and eBay

Well, here we are again at another Monday. The wondrous world of computing rolls on, getting forever more irritating by the minute. I once again have found something to complain about so here we go… We all like retrocomputing; the playing of old games bringing back hours of nostalgia, or hours of pain, depending on your preference. One thing I think we can all agree on is, it is becoming a very expensive hobby.

ZX Spectrum Next Promised New Dizzy Game in Final Kickstarter Week

One of the hottest properties in retro gaming, a new Sinclair ‘Speccy’, is entering its final week on Kickstarter as I type. And putting the icing on the cake—or the egg in the meringue, to coin a phrase—is today’s surprise announcement from legendary British 1980s game creators, the Oliver Twins, of a brand new Dizzy game to be delivered alongside the equally brand new Sinclair ZX Spectrum Next retro home computer.
