Those are good secrets, Doom

During yesterday's live-stream reveal of the Doom campaign, our comments section lit up with people exclaiming that this Doom wasn't enough like the Doom they knew and loved. It turns out that the single-player portion is actuall...

Punch-Out secret

Secret found in Mike Tyson's Punch-Out damn near three decades after release

You'd think there would be nothing left to wring out of a game like Punch-Out. The NES classic, released back in 1987, has been picked apart and broken down to the point where speedrunners compete to complete the game blindfolded. But, neve...

Nintendo's bringing SNES classics to New 3DS starting today

Nintendo's letting us play some of the most revered and iconic games on new, handheld hardware. Beginning today, select SNES classics are available to download on the New 3DS. The first batch of titles is made up of Super Mario World, Pilot...

Jet Set Radio's free on Steam right now

A lot of stuff is free lately. PlayStation has a few free games each month; Xbox does the same thing. But, none of that is truly free. Those both require a paid subscription to a premium service to cash in on some gratis games. Steam has so...

Pick Me Up! Super Mario RPG being revived for Wii U

A Geno costume in Super Smash Bros. isn't the extent of Nintendo's short-term plans for Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars. The revered and beloved Square-developed SNES game is getting a full port on the Wii U's Virtual Console. A...

These Contra action figures are historically accurate

Hot on the heels of other classic 8-bit action figures such as purple Jason and grumpy Godzilla, NECA announced the upcoming release of more toys based on games we used to love (well maybe not love, enjoy? Tolerate?) as children. These figu...

Kill your darlings, create a definitive list of your favorite games

A test to sort your favorite games has been making the rounds on social media over the past few days. Normally I ignore this sort of thing, but when it seemed to push our own Jonathan Holmes into an existential crisis earlier today, I start...

Three PS2 games have been rated for re-release on PS4

Back in the days of the PS3, Sony released a whole load of PlayStation 2 games for people to buy again (because who needs backward compatibility?). They had some pretty good stuff up on offer, but unfortunately none of those games have made...

Shutshimi: Seriously Swole coming soon to Wii U

Just last week, we were graced with the release of Shutshimi: Seriously Swole on PC, PS4 and Vita. In this bizarre tribute to classic shooters, players take control of a team of gun-toting goldfish with memory issues as they fight off waves...

D&D Forgotten Realms CRPGs are now available on GOG.com

Aside from a bit of Baldur's Gate and Neverwinter Nights, I never had the chance to play most of the Dungeon & Dragons game that came out for the PC. GOG.com and Wizards of the Coast are giving people the option to revisi...

 
Minesweeper photo
Minesweeper

Could you beat a game of Minesweeper with almost 40,000 mines?

One wrong move, and it's ka-fricken-boom. That's the margin for error in Minesweeper, as everyone who has owned a PC in the past 20 years knows. Those mines are everywhere, and it's up to you to meticulously sweep them. Knocking out expert...

Rare was going to make Velvet Dark, a sister title to the N64 Perfect Dark

Resident Evil HD Remaster has a million sales under its umbrella

As it turns out, people still love some old-fashioned scares. That's evident by the latest news coming out of Capcom's camp: Resident Evil HD Remaster has broken one million units sold since its January release. That's a lot of folks s...

Space Sluggers

Space Sluggers is chaotic and so incredibly cheesy

I'm quite a fan of old-school action shoot-'em-ups. Back in the day, I used to venture off to an arcade at my local pizza place and just chill out. With particular titles like Ikari Warriors, Smash TV, and Commando focusing on bombarding pl...

Resident Evil HD broke all sorts of sales records

Given how much cash they bring in, it's tough to fault publishers for continually focusing on gussying up beloved titles instead of moving forward with new games. Resident Evil HD is just the latest example, as plenty were eager to dow...

Q*Bert

Kids just won't understand how jaggy Q*Bert used to be

When Q*Bert Rebooted does a weird little hop thing over to PS4, PS3, and Vita, it'll evoke two different thoughts from its prospective audience. Old-timers won't be able to recall everything looking so smooth. Youngins will wonder wha...

Duke Nukem 3D: Megaton Edition available now on PS3/Vita, free with PS Plus

How does 900 classic arcade games in your browser sound?

Fancy the greatest classic gaming selection of all time? It's not at some fabled arcade where the sound of dropping quarters and eight-bit music drowns out the dimmed oldies rock station playing over the worn out speakers. No, instead, it's...

These PlayStation demakes transport you to a simpler time

It's never been all about the graphics for me. I can appreciate slick environments and the ability to watch sweat roll down my rugged protagonist's brow. But truth be told, I've always had a thing for PlayStation-era graphics and earlier. T...

@!#?@! Q*bert comes to Steam on July 8 in Q*bert Rebooted
