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 my 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 Thing

The final installment of this column prior to Halloween saved the best for last. There’s no denying John Carpenter’s “The Thing” from 1982 is a master class in claustrophobic paranoia. Forget the 2011 prequel and turn your attention to the 2002 sequel, developed with Carpenter’s blessing as a continuation/expansion of the events from the movie on its […]

No Credit Gaming Issue 1

  Welcome to the first issue of: “No Credit Gaming”.  This is my raw, badly drawn viewpoint as a gamer and retro game developer.  Just like DMCA has become a method to kill fan projects and dissenting opinions, licensing is also suspect.  I’ve found that development forums can look down on those who ask questions […]

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 […]

Alien Trilogy box

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 […]

The Godfather box

Revenge of the License: The Godfather (Amiga)

Let’s say you hit the jackpot. You just chased down one of the biggest licenses you could hope to land. A legendary bulwark of American cinema based on a best-selling novel by Mario Puzo, “The Godfather” is a guaranteed slam-dunk in the gaming world no matter what you deliver. So how do you pay homage […]

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 […]
