Games are still releasing for Atari Jaguar

If you had asked me what an Atari Jaguar was back in the mid-'90s, a roughly eight-year-old Kevin Mersereau would have probably assumed it was a sports car or maybe even an exotic animal of some sort. There is absolutely no chance whatsoeve...

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...

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...
