If you had a Game Boy Classic back in the late 80s or early 90s, it is likely that you will never feel the same way about any other gaming device. It’s not that the modern consoles and portable gaming devices today aren’t way, way better. It’s just that the Game Boy Classic evokes a […]

Why Free-to-Play Game Platforms Work for Developers

Tetris with Pillows is Oddly Satisfying

Everyone knows tetris, that block stacking game that gets increasingly harder until you inevitably fail. There are tetris Halloween costumes, tetris themed parties, tetris apparel, and a whole string of other tetris-related things. Someone even found a way to let trick-or-treating children (and adults) play tetris on carved pumpkin a couple Halloweens back. The love […]

Punk Archaeologists Dig Out a Ton of 80s Video Games

Punk’s not dead! At least to these archaeologists who are part of a relatively recent movement called “punk archaeology”. While “punk” and “archaeology” are not usually used in the same sentence (at least in a casual conversation), punk archaeology is an alternative branch of the science which studies more recent history, as opposed to digging out ruins […]

Concept Video Game Cat Scratchers for Cat Ladies

…and gentlemen, too. Because we’re for equality like that. For people with a cat (or cats) at home, you know you score points with your overlord(s) if you buy them awesome cat scratchers and give them catnip now and then. And then there’s the fact (or misconception?) that cats and geeks are the perfect pair… […]

Free Games That Are Keeping People From Living in the Real World

Not that I am against the whole thing – iOS games, people not living in the real world, calculating the time it will take to train x number of soldiers so they’re ready when you wake up, and so on. It’s just that I suddenly, just recently (which is weird) realized that there are some […]

Don’t Let Your Old Games Gather Dust!

It happens to every gamer: video games eventually are left alone, only to serve as dust collectors. It’s not that those games lose value to the gamer; it’s just that after you finish a game, or it proves to be too difficult (or too boring, as the case may be), you tend to lose interest. […]

Walk Down Memory Lane With These Retro Battlestations

Did you know that video games were invented way back in 1958? We can thank Willy Higinbotham, a physicist no less, who created a video game played on an oscilloscope!
