When NEC announced the Turbo Grafx-16 the press was abuzz with anticipation.  Up till this point in recent years it was clearly Nintendo holding the power of gaming in their hands.  Sega was just a meddling second placer fighting it out with Atari and their 7800 console (it was not much of a fight at […]

This is interesting news, especially considering that severe lack of information on the RETRO Video Game System.  CYBER Gadget Corporation is working on a console named “Retro Freak” which will purportedly play 11 different 16-Bit era consoles worth of games.  That is quite the backlog for many of us, and a chance to add to […]
