Fallout Brings Windows Gamers Alternative Historical Post-Nuclear War – Today in Retro Gaming – September 30th, 1997

War is something that is eternal in gaming.  Pretty much every electronic thing that has been released that plays games has had a war game of some sort.  Sure, that war game may have been with colorful graphics and bouncy sound effects but there was a war going on.  Fallout by Interplay, for Windows computers, certainly […]

Icewind Dale Takes R.A. Salvatore’s Story in New Direction – Today in Retro Gaming – June 29th 2000

How do you port a successful book series that is based in the rich world of a pen and paper game to computer?  Simple.  You don’t.  That is what Black Isle Studios did with Icewind Dale when they ported it to PC’s in 2000 for Interplay.  The game is based in another century from the […]

So Bad It’s Good: Run Like Hell (And Grab Your Bawls)

A guy travelling through space arrives at his intended destination to discover nearly everyone on board is dead, and his love interest is missing. Occasionally with the help of a partner, but usually all by himself, he proceeds through the levels in third-person perspective, solving puzzles, reading other people’s e-mail, upgrading his arsenal, and destroying aliens […]

RotL: Star Trek – Starfleet Academy Starship Bridge Simulator

“Any suggestions, Admiral?” “Prayer, Mr. Saavik. The Klingons don’t take prisoners.” Space…the final frontier. These aren’t the voyages of the Starship Enterprise. They’re not the voyages of any starship–at least not yet. If you want to make Captain, if you want to sit in the big chair, if you’d rather be out hopping galaxies instead […]

Loaded Gives Gamers Top Down Doom on Playstation – Today in History – December 12th, 1995

20 years ago gamers that took a chance on the original Playstation got access to a treat called Loaded.  Interplay probably took a large chance on this one as it is a completely new intellectual property.  Couple that with the “newness” of the Playstation (Sony’s first console) and it is quite a gamble.  Gamers that […]

Motion Sickness Gets Six Degrees of Freedom with Descent – Today in History – March 17th 1995

The charge of 20th anniversaries just won’t let up as we see another iconic game celebrating that special date.  Descent by Interplay was one of those games that you either “got” or you didn’t.  There was no real “middle ground” to speak of.  Tasked with clearing out mines of malfunctioning equipment, you will have a […]

Renegade Racers Defies Water Physics on Playstation – Today in History – March 9th, 2000

It is not all that unique in gaming to have real world physics completely, and utterly, ignored in favor of making a fun game possible.  This happens in virtually every video game that is not a simulation of some sort.  Physics aren’t all that fun in most games since they keep the player stuck in […]

New Game: Descent Freespace: The Great War Now Available on Steam

Descent will go down in history as being one the best cases for motion sickness with gamers. This series has also gone through more changes and variations than a Kardashian television show. Starting out as a 3D tunnel exploration flight sim that literally had no up or down, sort of like space but without the […]

Free Game: Rock ‘n Roll Racing by Blizzard

Any company that takes it upon themselves to release their older titles as freeware should be commended and celebrated. That is why I am writing this post, separate from The Lost Vikings (another game Blizzard has given away recently). Rock ‘n Roll Racing is a different beast altogether from the puzzle action game that Blizzard […]

Free Game: The Lost Vikings from Blizzard

Free games are free games. Great retro titles that are now free are even better. Blizzard has already given away Blackthorne on their Battle.net service and recently they added a couple of other titles, Rock and Roll Racing and The Lost Vikings. These are older games that Blizzard owns from their time as “Silicon & […]
