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 […]

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, […]

Half-Life and Quake 2 Engine Ported to Atari Falcon, Work in Progress with Video

Retrogaming fans are a crafty lot.  They have ported games to Doom to an ATM machine for instance.  We have seen demakes, we have seen remakes and everything in between.  Now, we have a work in progress for the IdTech #2 (Quake 2 Engine) running on an old Atari Falcon- a computer that was released […]

Commerical Freeware- X-Men The Ravages of Apocalypse Released to Fans

Way back in the early days of First Person Shooters (FPS), aka 3D gaming, we had a little title called Quake to keep us interested and playing on computers.  Since Quake was quite open, much like how id Software did with Doom, people were able to make mods, new characters and changes to the engine […]

Bandit Gaming: Quake Running on Oscilloscope (Epilepsy Sufferers Please Do Not Click)

Of all the things we see retro games ported to and running on, one of the last things that you would probably think of would Quake running on an Oscilloscope.  Yeah, the 3D intensive (for its time) first person shooter running on something that wasn’t even intended for gaming.  The wild thing is, it runs […]

Bandit Gaming- Alien Breed 3D 2- The Killing Grounds Ported to the Amiga CD32

Everyone knows the Amiga CD32 was kind of the black sheep of gaming, much like the 3DO Interactive Multiplayer, and there weren’t a lot o games released for it. Decades later game hackers have been working on unoficial ports of Amiga games. For those that do not know, the CD32 is basically an Amiga 1200 […]
