F-Zero Zeroes On... PC Engine!?

Now that's a headline I never believe I would be writing. But thanks to homebrew hero Chris Covell, Nintendo's phenomenal racing franchise is now on Nec's little machine that could! Check this out! » 11/25/14 10:27am 11/25/14 10:27am

It's been popping a bit all over the place, but I wanted to make sure everyone around here know that there is now a 900+ games arcade right in your browser. And in case someone asks: No, I did not just spend the last ten minutes playing Sky Kid. » 11/04/14 7:42am 11/04/14 7:42am

Happy 27th Birthday, PC Engine!

On October 30th 1987, NEC presented Japan this little tiny box that, believe it or not, would produce arcade quality 16 bit graphics and sound in your TV! How could that possibly be and why would you need another box if you already had a Famicom attached to your telly? » 10/30/14 7:12am 10/30/14 7:12am

Bill's Tomato Game For Megadrive Released!

The amusingly named "Bill's Tomato Game" might sound like the usual platformer affair from the 90's, but it's in fact a very good physics puzzle game made in 1992 for Commodore Amiga and Atari ST. » 10/15/14 6:54am 10/15/14 6:54am

Games of Summer 2014 - A PC Inside a PC: PCEnception!

Summer for me equals with retro-gaming. In fact, all year round I try to find excuses to squeeze in some retro-gaming in my life. This year I played quite a awful lot of games made for a system I never owned, a home console that if not for Nintendo's very strict third party control in the US, might have had a… » 9/10/14 3:12pm 9/10/14 3:12pm

Shovel Knight VHS Play Guide

The title says it all. Just like back in the 90's, I look at this VHS tape with sparkles in around eyes while waiting for the game to be released in European (digital) stores... it's my PAL gamer nightmare childhood all over again! » 7/10/14 6:53pm 7/10/14 6:53pm

Gamester81 Give Us The RetroN5 Review We Need

This is actually the second part of the review, in which Gamester81 picks the system apart (not literally, that would void his warranty of course). And most important of all besides all the fancy graphics filtering, he puts audio output side by side between the RetroN5 and the actual hardware. It's over 20 minutes,… » 6/06/14 11:25am 6/06/14 11:25am
