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...

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...
