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 ...

Do you remember?: Comix Zone

When we were young teens, me and my brother laid claim to the basement. The rest of the house was neat and orderly, a pastel world of floral designs and tasteful drapes. But, the basement was ours. A savage land of hand-me-down sofas, coffe...

This 1998 BioShock demake is something else

This gets my vote for today's coolest thing (that isn't new but is new to me). 98DEMAKE is a YouTube creator who takes modern video games and imagines what they might've looked like had they originally released in 1998. I've seen plenty of ...
