Take Your Commodore 64 On-Line with Upcoming Wi-Fi Cartridge

The Commodore 64 featured a lifespan that was somewhat unique, especially considering how popular it was (and remains to be).  Particularly, it missed the Internet (as we know it) and it missed “affordable” Wi-Fi options that we enjoy today.  Those things have not stopped independent developers from creating a Wi-Fi cartridge for the little Commodore […]

1983 Game, Labyrinth of Crete, Fixed by Fans in 2015

When you discuss game hacks most people will think of that one time that they played a hack of Super Mario Bros that had Sonic instead of Mario.  Or they will think of gamers playing illegally obtained copies on a ton of different hardware (Nintendo games on Sony – which almost happened – for instance).  […]

Prototype – Commodore 65 Found and Now on Auction Block

Ah, Commodore, the company that brought us such great and venerable computers like the 64/128 and the Amiga.  These computers really defined computer gaming in the 80’s for a lot of fans that preferred keyboards to joysticks (though both were offered).  As most computer users of the old days know, there were attachments for these […]

Battletanx Blows Up The Nintendo 64: Today in History- December 31st, 1998

Battletanx on the Nintendo 64 may not have set sales records, it certainly did open, even if ever so briefly, a new genre of gaming that few companies jumped in on (Sega did with Alien Front Online which was “similar”). The year is 2001, a virus has wiped out the feminine side of the human […]

Polaris SnoCross Shreds Onto the Nintendo 64: Today in History- December 27th, 2000

Before Vicarious Visions were working their magic for Sega and the whole 2k sports line on the Sega Dreamcast system, they were creating games like Polaris SnoCross for companies like Vatical Entertainment for the Nintendo 64.  While not a graphically impressive game, it does show off Vicarious Visions capabilities with early 3D (which they tweaked […]

Armorines: Project S.W.A.R.M. Released on Nintendo 64: Today in History- December 2nd, 1999

Acclaim may be dead and gone now (they were one of the first licensees for the original Nintendo Entertainment System back in the mid 80’s) but it can never be said that they didn’t try new things in their games.  They may not have been successful with many of their titles but they tried anyhow. […]

New Game: X-Force Reminds Gamers that the Commodore 64 Can Rock Scrolling Shooters

Side scrolling shooters.  A genre that used to rule the roost in gaming, no matter what platform you gamed on, there was probably more than a handful of side scrolling shooters (unless it was a 3DO, CD-i or Playdia that is).  From the likes of Nemesis II on the Game Boy to Thunder Force III […]

Bandit Gaming: Donkey Kong Jr Ported to the Commodore 64

That old adage, what is old is new again, is certainly true in the homebrew scene as old gaming properties are constantly seeing new light on platforms they may have missed from official channels.  We have seen Mario jump to the Sega Genesis, unofficial sequels to The Lion King, Link from The Legend of Zelda […]

Kickstarter: Do It Yourself Portable Nintendo 64 Looking for Crowd Funding Support

Over the years we have seen just about every console released receive a portable edition (most have been stupidly expensive).  The main problem with these portable modified consoles is that they were usually created by an individual on a one at a time basis.  A recent Kickstarter project looks to change that by making the […]

The big news item here is that a beta of Conker’s Bad Fur Day “uncut” and a new, early, build of Perfect Dark has been found and released. This event has been made possible by a member of the Assembler Games forums but retro gamers will benefit the most.
