The Chaos Engine is coming back with a 'restoration'

My first reaction to this annoyingly teaserish trailer for The Chaos Engine was, "Holy eff! They're remaking The Chaos Engine!" That is not quite what's happening here -- this is a "restoration" of the classic top-down co-op...

The ecstacy of Smooth McGroove's VG a cappellas

I've tried my very best to avoid sharing too much of Smooth McGroove's kickass a cappella arrangements. Not because I think he's lost his Midas touch, but because I didn't want to be held responsible for making heads explode...

3D Sonic The Hedgehog coming to 3DS eShop in Japan

It's been a while since any region outside of Japan received a new 3D Classics touch-up on the 3DS eShop. You may think that the only difference between the originals and their 3D remakes is the added stereoscopic effect, but...

Savor this album of Sega Genesis-styled jams photo
Savor this album of Sega Genesis-styled jams
by Tony Ponce

Tuesday morning music madness gives props to the Sega Genesis! I will not rest until I convert all you SNES-loving heathens (I don't really think you are heathens) into soldiers of the Genesis nation. The war rages on (no it doesn't)!

Vurgon is the first completed album by Ario, who only started making tunes a mere six years ago. The seven-track chiptune production makes full use of FM synth, that magical quality of sound that made Genesis music so gosh-darn lovely. And with alien gibberish like "Glaustarr" and "Clankendrung" as song titles, Ario's album could easily work as the soundtrack to a new 16-bit space shmup.

Want this bizniz? Give Vurgon a download below, for however much you wish to splurge.
