Fans Improve 8-Bit Nintendo Super Pitfall for 30th Anniversary, Visually New Game

Revenge of the License: Five NES Games That Missed the Point

I love licensed NES games. I love the sound they make as I yank them out of my system and hurl them against the wall. The relentless plundering through the morass in search of something worth playing and finding the occasional surprise is always delightful, and why I keep coming back to this column over […]

Revenge of the License: Boxing Games and Karma

Humanity has a few personality quirks we’ve spent the last several thousand years failing to breed out of existence. Chief among these appears to be our desire to watch one person pulverize another in combat. No less a philosopher than the Cyberdyne Systems Model 101 remarked of the human race, “It’s in your nature to […]

Revenge of the License: World’s Scariest Police Chases (PS1)

One of these days I will learn not to open my mouth and express any opinions about video games when I’m around my editor. Innocuous comments made over Facebook chats often wind up condemning me to a week’s worth of misery. I point out how awful some game looks, and before I can finish the […]

Bandit Gaming- Crash Bandicoot Remade in Unreal Engine 4, and it Looks Amazing

Anisotropic are working on recreating the Crash Bandicoot games using Unreal Engine 4.  Crash Bandicoot was quite the eye opening title for the fledgling Sony Playstation.  His 3D/2.4D antics were just too much for Sega to compete with and this helped propel the PSOne into the leading role of the era.  For a period, Crash […]

Review: Megamania for Atari 2600

If I ever wondered why I love retro and retro video gaming, it’s when you pick up a game and read things like this “If you think Megamania is just another space game, you’re dreaming.  And that dream will become a nightmare.  A space nightmare.  So, prepare yourself for one of the most unreal experiences […]

Today in Retro Gaming – Blue Stinger (Dreamcast)

Listen, you may think you understand what trouble is. You think trouble is when you’re late to work after being stuck in rush-hour traffic. You think trouble is what happens when you pass a cop on the right. In a school zone. Going 55 miles per hour. With a burnt-out tail light. But you’re wrong. […]
