Night Trap is coming back, baby!

Night Trap is notorious for being one of the few games that brought about the creation of the ESRB. While its content is pretty damn vanilla and very PG rated, apparently its depiction of violence against women was so realistic and encompas...

Some beautiful bastards are making a new Genesis beat-em-up

The last game commercially released on the Sega Genesis was a port of Frogger in 1998. If we disregard other homebrew or indie games, then it has been roughly 19 years since any of us had the chance to play a brand new game on the system. T...

In 20 years, those who knows how to code will be floating around Earth 2, space-watering their space-lawns, anticipating the new Game of Thrones book, and going on dates while the rest of us are stuck with cattle prods, forced to run on th...

Review: Rad Rodgers: World One

As I mentioned in my preview piece, Rad Rodgers: World One came out of nowhere. I was struck by the mind-blowing graphics and how 3D Realms was publishing a game from a relatively unknown developer. It looked like a throwback to Commander K...

86-year-old woman loves gaming, plays Disgaea

I love 86-year-old gamer Hilda Knott because she is one of us. This BBC clip on her shows that she plays real games -- not Facebook social and mobile crap -- and has real gamer cred. Not Solitaire, but Grand Theft Auto. She plays on a 65-in...

You go, granny! Kit Connell is 100 years old -- at that age, it's fairly likely that your mind will start to fade. Kit isn't having any of that, so she stays sharp by playing on a Nintendo DS that her daughter bought for her. And boy, does...

Three things you should know about me before reading this: I hate doing stuff I don't feel like doing (some call it laziness, I call it "strong willed"), I'm a sucker for free stuff, and I hate gaming peripherals. Those are the th...

Stereotype killer: 114 million adult gamers in the US

I love this new study from MarketResearch as it basically says that just about half the people in the U.S. are gamers. Gamer haters can't exactly go looking down on gamers, as they would be looking down on more than  half the country's...
