PS1 Collecting: Thirteen Must-Haves For Anyone on a Budget

If there’s an easier system to pick up and start collecting for than the original Sony PlayStation, I’ve yet to find it. The biggest entry point obstacle to collecting on old school systems is usually buying the console itself, but the PS1 is so ubiquitous and inexpensive it’s absurd. Twenty years ago, putting a PlayStation […]

Top 3 Import Games (Top 3 Tuesday)

Once more into the trenches, fellow Retromaniacs! This week, the studlier, more ruggedly handsome, infinitely cooler Michael (aka MichaelBtheGameGenie) raised a new topic which requires our input. Today’s video, which you should absolutely go and watch before you get any further into this column, requests his legions to choose and explain their Top 3 Import […]

Top 3 SHMUPS (Top 3 Tuesday)

SHMUPS: they’re neither candy nor some weird Asian bird flu derivative! ‘SHMUP’ is Internet shorthand for “shoot ’em up”, a genre of game where you pilot a person or craft through a series of auto-scrolling stages destroying everything in sight to earn power-ups so you can destroy everything in sight even faster. In other words, […]

Top 3 Bad Games I Enjoy: A Response to MichaelBtheGameGenie

MichaelBtheGameGenie is a YouTube vlogger who, as you might have sussed out from his name, enjoys playing and talking about video games among other things. On his most recent video, uploaded yesterday, he set out to revive a series made popular by edt1138, another video game vlogger, called “Top 3 Tuesday”, where one person makes […]

Playstation Agony, Part 4: Mary-Kate and Ashley: Magical Mystery Mall

“Just saw the stats on last week’s column,” Carl said, cornering me on the way out the front door. “Got an explanation?” “Surprised me too,” I said. “Who knew we had that many Dukes of Hazzard fans? Good thing for me you put it in the bag. Couldn’t have made my quota of candy bar […]

Playstation Agony, Part 3: Dukes of Hazzard: Racing For Home

It’s now week three of this nonsense, and I’m taking a break from my standard office routine of editing random articles in Wikipedia to honor my editor’s contributions to pop culture. Quick fact: did you know it was RGM’s own Carl Williams’s behavior that inspired Whale to write and record their 1995 alt-rock hit, “Hobo […]

Powerpuff Girls Chemical X-Traction

PlayStation Agony, Part 2: PowerPuff Girls Chemical X-Traction

Having survived the wretchedness that was The Simpsons Wrestling last week, I reached into the bag to discover what new form of torment my punishment would take this Sunday. I’d keep a positive attitude about this, but when Carl, my boss, picks the topic of discussion I can only be positive he’s gone out of […]

Simpsons Wrestling

PlayStation Agony, Part 1: The Simpsons Wrestling

When Carl, the man I perceive as the primary antagonist in my life as a video game character, used a sledgehammer to defeat the lock on my door, my heart slid into┬ámy colon. “Time to pay the piper,” he said, holding up a paper shopping bag. “Donald Trump will be president, therefore you lost the […]

Revenge of the License: The X-Files (PS1)

‘The X-Files’ utterly changed the face of television. It scared us with ghost stories for adults. It boggled our minds with conspiracies within conspiracies. In its early days, before internet access was something everyone took for granted, it gave us a reason to visit the library and research topics ranging from alien abduction and the […]

Revenge of the License: Alien Trilogy

One of iD Software’s initial ideas for Doom was to make a first-person shooter set in the world of James Cameron’s ‘Aliens’. When a licensing deal couldn’t be worked out between iD and 20th Century Fox, Carmack and Romero’s team fell back on a more generic ‘space marine kills everything’ setting, and an FPS classic […]
