Blap_Bash_retro_Breakout_Commodore_C64

The Commodore 64 is the compute that just won’t die.  Fans won’t let it and personally, I am thankful that they won’t.  It is amazing that new games are constantly being released for this computer, over 30 years after it initially launched.  Not crap either like many of the Nintendo Entertainment Homebrew that I don’t […]

Super_Mario_64_Nintendo_Blast_Off

Super Mario 64 was a seminal release, it was one of the last times that a console and a launch title sold 1:1 at launch, and it was an instant classic.  Sure, there were problems with Super Mario 64 but fans were too enamored with the quality of the overall package to be nitpicking little […]

c64

The Commodore 64 featured a lifespan that was somewhat unique, especially considering how popular it was (and remains to be).  Particularly, it missed the Internet (as we know it) and it missed “affordable” Wi-Fi options that we enjoy today.  Those things have not stopped independent developers from creating a Wi-Fi cartridge for the little Commodore […]
