Six More Absurdly Difficult D&D Adventures (That Are Not Tomb of Horrors)

Before I get started, I have just one thing to say: you’re a bunch of sadists. All of you. I compiled a list of half a dozen of the deadliest old school Dungeons & Dragons adventures to ever see print, and you not only ate it up but shared it with your buddies and gave it […]

ST Update 'Pilot Issue', Spring (March) 1987

A Blast from the past – Atari ST Style

The past few years have seen many notable 30th anniversary celebrations in the retro computing/gaming community–from the birthdays of the humble but seminal Sinclair ZX81 and the ever-popular ZX Spectrum via the versatile BBC Micro to those mighty 16/32 bit beasts, the Atari ST, and Commodore Amiga. This month it’s the turn of the once-popular, […]

Four Things Nintendo Has Done Against Their Fans August 2016 Edition

Nintendo is a company that is able to play both sides of the fence.  Somewhat like Metallica and the whole Napster and “suing fans” angle the press ran with, but Nintendo stops at actually taking things to court.  Nintendo is more of a fan of the “silent” aggression as they protect their intellectual properties.  Even […]

Nintendo Potentially Behind Removing Nintendo Power Magazine From Archive.org

It was just recently that I reported that Nintendo Power was available on Archive.org for free.  Now, I am reporting that Nintendo has followed through on a second, unforeseen, cease and desist threat (the first was the AM2R removal).  Apparently Nintendo has ordered the first 13 years of Nintendo Power Magazine to be removed from […]

Revenge of the License: Dragon Magazine Archive

No, the Dragon Magazine Archive is not a game, it’s something better–it’s knowledge. Following up on last week’s absurdly difficult adventures article, we’re keeping with the D&D theme and presenting this look at how a concern over copyright led one of the most awesome pieces of software ever to arrive on store shelves to vanish just as quickly […]

First 13 Years of Nintendo Power Available via Internet Archive, What it Could Mean to Old Gaming Magazines

This is one of those cool news posts that I love writing.  Sure, everyone else in the gaming world, and many not in it, have covered this to death recently but I think they are missing a major point.  This is a big news event.  Nintendo, a company that has been 101% against digital copies […]

Awful In Hindsight: PC Accelerator Issue 1’s Cover Story

PC Accelerator (abbreviated to PCXL within the mag) was a short-lived US publication devoted to computer games. Sporting a less-mature, more attitude-oriented style than other ‘zines, PC Accelerator was essentially the coverage of PC Gamer mixed with the male wish fulfillment fantasy embodied in Maxim. It launched in September 1998 under the tagline, “Bigger, Better, […]

25 Years Ago – What Were the 8-bit Magazines Reviewing

The year 1991, 8 bit magazines such as Amstrad Action, Your Sinclair and ZZAP64, lined the shelves at the local newsagents, choc-a-block full of the latest games reviews. Here is a brief look back at just some of the 8bit games being road tested and reviewed in the magazines we enjoyed reading so much, 25 […]

Marble Mountain Reminds Us of another Classic Retro Title, Marble Madness, on Steam Greenlight

Marble Madness, a classic arcade title that was fairly popular back around the end of the Nintendo Entertainment System days into the early Sega Genesis era.  Back then “isometric” titles were somewhat all the rage with game developers.  Isometric viewpoints allowed a bit of depth that previously was not capable on the hardware of the […]

New Colecovision Homebrew Title, Cave, Brings 3D Rogue-like Adventure to Dead Console

The Colecovision was a platform that was one of the unfortunate fatalities that occurred due to the 1983/1984 video game crash.  The console, up to this point and for a while afterwards, was doing quite well but things dropped off considerably as we neared 1985- to the point that Coleco, the parent company of the […]
