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 […]

Melodie Unreleased Sony Playstation Portable Title Found Released

The Sony Playstation Portable, a hand held that was held back for many reasons.  Some people feel it was piracy, others feel it was a lack of quality games.  Then there are people that feel it was a “failure” because of lack of direction (Internet, music, games, movies, pictures, etc).  Whatever the reason, a lot […]

Capcom’s Monster Hunter on Life Support

I’ve started noticing a trend in certain video games recently. Developers appear to believe that if you release a multiplayer online game they will maintain an extremely high player base if they release tiny bits of DLC throughout the following months of release. While this can be a noble goal in the case of certain […]

Shadow of the Colossus Atari 2600 Revived After Hardware Crash

Virtual Fishing on Nintendo Virtual Boy is the last Japanese Exclusive to be translated to English

The Nintendo Virtual Boy was one of Nintendo’s few failures in gaming- it was completely mishandled by the marketing team for one thing, among others.  For retrogaming fans that means there is a smaller amount of titles to collect and, ultimately, enjoy.  This lack of software makes it easy for completest collector’s to purchase every […]

What if the Sims Were Done in the Style of Pokemon?

Interesting thought, what if the Sims were done in the style of Pokemon?  I wonder.  Well, neither you nor I have to wonder too much about it because Youtube personality, Hat-Loving Gamer, has done all of the work for us.  Hat-Loving Gamer has taken the idea behind the Sims and combined it with the world […]

Rol’An’Go is a New Turn Based Strategy Title for Sega Genesis

New Sega Genesis games are still coming out, not as often as the Atari 2600 receives them but still better than nothing.  One new titles that I just found out about is Rol’An’Go by Atari Age forum member, Vetea.  What is unique about Rol’An’Go is that it is a turn based strategy game, similar to […]

The 2nd Great Video Game Crash and how it could Be Stopped

The video game industry had a crash in 1983/1984 that nearly ended our favorite pastime for good.  During this period there were many gaming consoles available, lots of games and many developers that were popping up out of nowhere and just as quickly disappearing.  It was a horrific time for fans of gaming that lived […]

Pac-Man 2 Homebrew Released for Atari 2600

Before you get to thinking this is a port of Pac-Man 2: The New Adventures from the 16-bit platforms, calm down.  It is not.  This is a hack of the original Pac-Man with new levels and improved all around over what Atari forced on us back in the day.  Pac-Man 2 is hard, you are […]
