Mario walks funny in Genesis Super Mario World

Mario somehow packed on a few pounds for the Genesis version of Super Mario World. In this rare, illegal port, Mario also walks funny while he's carrying...why is he carrying crates? Oh, and it looks like he's modified his f...

Talk about retro: Missile Command vinyl album?

It's like retro on top of retro! If the Atari game Missile Command wasn't retro enough, how about a Missle Command vinyl soundtrack? This rare 33 RPM, 12" vinyl LP from the 1980s contains the score [hah!] to this classic...

Cool rare gaming crap: Mega Jet, Sega SGX, SFII talking bank

I've always wanted a Sega Mega Jet, though I could never tell you why. It's just a unwieldy controller with a Genesis/Mega Drive built in. It's got a d-pad, six buttons, and a cartridge hole in the top. But no screen. You'll ...
