Weird Al Rocks in 8-bit Style

Gaming and music is one of the greatest pairings in life just like peanut butter and chocolate, sex and candy, and Hall and Oates. Music can be used to amplify the joy of a fun game or make playing a game with terrible sound tolerable. Fortunately, Weird Al can do both.

Three New Retro Gaming Consoles Coming

There are currently three new retro gaming consoles on the way.  Each has a different set of games and options.  Two are limited to the games of the hardware while the third is more of a wild card in this race.  While many gamers are clamoring for news on the upcoming Nintendo Switch there are […]

The New Nintendo Classic Console Previewed

  You’ve probably already heard that the classic Nintendo console has returned. The new NES is practically the same in design, but only cuter than before. It’s called NES Classic Mini and it’s the official relaunch containing 30 classic hits and most loved 80s games ever.

The Atari Home Arcade Experience, Age 10

In the early years of the Eighties decade, the only thing that could take my attention away from the multitudes of arcades in my hometown of Columbia, South Carolina was playing video games at home.  Well, in May of 1982 the next stage of my video game obsession came to be: my parents bought me […]

There is No Cure For Pac-Man Fever.  I’m Living Proof

Good day, everyone!  New guy Thor here, but I guess “new” is a relative term considering I’m 44 years old.  As you may have guessed, I’ve been playing games for a VERY long time: I recall playing one of those mid-seventies 3-game Pong home machines during the mid-seventies, but I consider my official initiation into […]

Pac Man 256 Hits Steam, Playstation 4 and Xbox One

Okay PC, Playstation 4 and Xbox One gamers, you can now grab Pac Man 256 and enjoy it just like mobile gamers have.  That is right, the endless runner that actually makes sense is now available on more platforms.  This is the mobile game but bigger and better (especially if you had a smaller screen […]

Japan Catches Pac-Man Fever – Today in History – May 21st, 1980

Where were you today in 1980?  Myself, I was probably fumbling around the backyard and trying to learn to tie my own shoes.  I was four years old.  I would not find out about Pac-Man for a few more years when I was exposed to it on the Atari 2600.  It would be several years […]

Revenge of the License: Board Games

The most obvious shortcut you can take as a game developer is to make a game out of something that is already a game. Chess programs have been used to sell people on the idea of home computers since the 1970s, every version of Windows has shipped with Solitaire built right in, and casino games […]

Portland Retro Gaming Expo to Debut Clyde’s Revenge for Atari 2600

Another title that is going to be debuted at the Portland Retro Gaming Expo is Clyde’s Revenge for the Atari 2600.  This is another limited release by Good Deal Games and Michael Thomasson, GDG owner/founder.  What is unique about Clyde’s Revenge is, well, you are taking control of the bad guy, specifically the red ghost […]

Pac-Man on Atari 2600 Receives Much Improved Version by Homebrew Developer

The original Pac-Man for the Atari 2600 was a crappy game, no doubt about it.  Atari probably knew very well that they shouldn’t have released it like it was but they did anyhow.  Call it greed, call it stupidity, call it whatever you want.  The point is, it was a crap game.  Leave it to […]
