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

86-year-old woman loves gaming, plays Disgaea
