Quake Brings Gamers 3rd Dimension Death – Today in Retro Gaming – June 22nd 1996

Okay, where were you 20 years ago?  Were you a PC gamer or were you a console gamer?  Either way, you probably heard about Quake by id Software when it was released.  It was a game changer for all of the right reasons.  While Doom, id Software’s previous series, was iconic and popular, Quake took […]

Take Down Nazi Forces in Wolfenstein 3D on PC – Today in History – May 5th, 1992

Okay, back in the early 1990’s PC gaming was COMPLETELY different than it is today.  We actually went to stores and bought games.  We didn’t have online capabilities standard in games.  We barely had modem, land line, multiplayer.  Direct, in the same room multiplayer was common around this time.  We also would call or write, […]

Updated: New Hardware- RETRO Video Game System in Development

Okay, how many times do we get to discuss upcoming, new, hardware?  Not that often, not nearly as often as we do games for old platforms.  The man behind RETRO Magazine has been tipping his toes in the waters of hardware manufacturing and launching a new gaming platform.  How he plans on doing this is […]

Go To Hell in Doom – Today in History – December 10th, 1993

When id Software released Doom they probably didn’t expect it to take off like it did.  Previously they did a lot of other games that weren’t nearly as big and the moderately successful Wolfenstein 3D.  The point is, everything prior to Doom was nowhere near as popular.  Doom expanded upon the graphics conveyed in Wolfenstein […]
