Review: Space Invaders Extreme (PC)

Almost 10 years ago, Space Invaders Extreme released for the Nintendo DS and PlayStation Portable and blew people away. The game was a wild reinvention of one of the most iconic shmups ever made and it somehow transformed a 30-year-old prop...

Review: Arkanoid vs. Space Invaders

Arkanoid vs. Space Invaders has slowly taken over my life. Jordan first brought it to my attention last week, and today I play it everywhere I go. I play it on the bus, I play it on the train, I play it at my desk when I’m sure nobody...

Obscure Video Games: Combat Queen

Remember FMV games? Back in the '90s they were briefly the hot new thing. Games like Phantasmagoria and 7th Guest were considered cutting edge adventure games. Perhaps you even bought a CD-ROM drive for your computer just to play them. Even...

Arkanoid vs. Space Invaders should have happened years ago

I was too young to get into Space Invaders, influential as it was, but Arkanoid is my jam. Taito is working on a mobile game for iOS and Android that combines the two properties, according to Game Watch, and I'm loving the sound of it (minu...

Sip in style with these retro Taito coffee mugs

You can never have too many coffee mugs. My favorite just happens to be the House Targaryen stein I've got chilling in my cabinet, but I rarely drink coffee (if ever) so I don't have much of a reason to use it. But if I ever want some hot c...

Taito's Crime Connection wants your phone's contact info

Crime Connection, the latest iOS and Android title from Square Enix subsidiary Taito, is a free-to-play "social crime simulation" in the style of Mafia Wars. There is a serious caveat to the game, however, and I'm not talking about microtra...

'Impossible' Famicom game Takeshi's Challenge translated

Takeshi Kitano, Japan's most extreme eliminator, hates technology. Naturally, he was the best person to ask to help make a videogame. The result was Takeshi no Chousenjou (Takeshi's Challenge), a Famicom title that was nearly impossible to...

Get this game: Groove Coaster is $0.99 for the holidays

Groove Coaster is awesome. It's easily one of my favorite iOS titles, and I think that every rhythm game fan should check it out. It's kind of like Rez in the visual department, but the music gaming is much simpler, as it has you tapping to...
