198X takes you back to '80s arcades

I'm gonna break away from my normal shtick of weird shit and animals for something a little more grounded, but no less esoteric. Growing up playing video games in public, in arcades, now counts as esoteric, right? 198X looks to tickle that ...

Shenmue 3's PC port will take up 100 GB

It just dawned on me that 2019 is not only going to contain Kingdom Hearts III and Resident Evil 2 but Shenmue III. Holy cow is that awesome! What isn't so awesome is the required hard drive space for Yu Suzuki's long-coming sequel. As reve...
