John Carlsen Interview, His Career and the RETRO VGS

This is a special opportunity to discuss what transpired during an integral part of the development of the RETRO Video Game System (now known as the Coleco Chameleon) by RETRO Video Game Systems Inc. It is clear that Mike Kennedy is the primary owner, as far as we know, of RETRO Video Game Systems Inc, […]

More Trouble with Coleco Chameleon Surfaces, Revisionist History Spotted

This is a tough article to write.  To this point, I have been unbiased as possible on my views of the RETRO Video Game System, now the Coleco Chameleon.  I am doing my best to keep it that way because articles from me, as one of the owners of RGM, are considered “RGM word”.  Everyone […]

Mike Kennedy Breaks Silence About Coleco Chameleon while 3rd Party Developer Stops Talking to Press

It is no secret that I have been covering the RETRO Video Game System, pretty much from day one, up to its demise on IndieGoGo.  It is also no secret that I have followed up with the Coleco Chameleon as it was announced (at this time it is just the RETRO VGS with a new […]

RETRO Video Game System Becomes Coleco Chameleon Console

In my other article I detail the current Coleco naming cluster and this new Coleco Chameleon console.  Basically, the Coleco that is licensing out the name is Coleco Holdings, not the same company that launched the ColecoVision in the 1980’s.  No, this is a new company that is a subsidiary of River West Brands.  Anyhow, […]

Coleco Chameleon, Coleco Holdings and the Real Coleco

I have covered the development of the RETRO Video Game System for quite a while.  I interviewed the former team that were running things.  I spent over 20 hours transcribing that interview into text for those that prefer to copy/paste when sharing rather than share time stamps in an audio file.  They had a failed […]

Adventures of Tiny Knight Coming to Super Nintendo and Wii U

The Adventures of Tiny Knight is an all new action platform title that was originally planned to be the pack-in title for the failed RETRO Video Game System (potentially returning to crowdfunding later this year).  We saw a teaser trailer released for what was supposed to be the RETRO VGS version in action, but there […]

Anna Fuda Project: Eden, New Run and Gun from Collectorvision Coming to Next Gen Systems

Collectorvision Games have been steadily keeping their collective heads pointed forward over the years.  Even though the RETRO VGS is currently regrouping (Collectorvision were making the pack-in title), Collectorvision are continuing work on another 2D side scrolling action game, Anna Fuda Project: Eden.  Jean-Francois Dupuis, owner of Collectorvision Games, released some very basic information on […]

RETRO VGS Sees Immense Social Media Backlash as Crowdfunding Project Begins

The RETRO VGS is to be a new gaming console that hearkens back to the early days of gaming, before on-line capabilities, before patches and in app purchases seeped in.  Many of us remember this as the days of the 32-Bit era (Sega Saturn, PSOne, Nintendo 64) and earlier- more fondly at about the Super […]

RETRO Video Game System and the Looming Identity Crisis Within

I have covered the RETRO Video Game System (RETRO VGS) several times here on Retro Gaming Magazine in the recent past.  This is a purportedly new “retro” themed console in development.  The RETRO VGS is co-headed by Mike Kennedy, also founder of RETRO Magazine, which is expected to expand the overall scope of the RETRO […]

Tentative Price Points for RETRO VGS Released and First Gameplay of the First Game Shown

It is looking like a June or July announcement for the RETRO Video Game System going to Kickstarter to look for crowd funding support.  With that in mind, and the fact I like “analyzing” things versus re-writing news items from other sites, I am back with another article on the RETRO VGS (it is not […]
