primalrage21

Primal Rage garnered a moderate level of success when it hit arcades in the early 1990s, and in subsequent years Atari's prehistoric brawler was ported to pretty much every contemporary home console (and a coupe of handheld ones, too). The ports came with varying degrees of arcade accuracy, but for the most part were deemed to be worthy alternati [ … ]

 

Modern Review: Uncanny Valley (PS Vita)

uncannyvalley1

Before I actually delve into the main meat and potatoes of Cowardly Creations’ recent PS4 and Vita release, I want to discuss the title. Uncanny Valley is named after the notion that the more accurate simulations of human faces and expressions get, the more we (as in, us real humans) become aware that they might not be authentic. A great example [ … ]

NBA-Jam-2K17-ROM-Hack-for-Super-Nintendo

What’s not to love about NBA Jam? Despite its age, the two on two match-up has stood the test of time with its fast paced action and hilarious multiplayer gameplay.

Backlit-Game-Boy-Color-on-TaoBao

Several months ago there was some impressive progress made in Game Boy modification circles after hardware hacker BennVenn managed to get the Game Boy Color running through a Game Boy Advance SP screen. While providing a much crisper image and an illuminated screen, the solution was slightly hindered by the bulky size of the wide LCD screen. Althou [ … ]

 

Android App ‘MSX2Cas’ Brings Tape Loading Via Headphone Jack To The MSX Computers

MSX2Cas-Tape-Image-Loader

In recent times some retro gamers have converted old iPods into ZX Spectrum tape emulators by converting tape images of games into audio files. By playing the high pitched noise through the headphone jack and back into the micro-computer, the ZX Spectrum is none the wiser that modern technology is feeding it data rather than a traditional cassette [ … ]

Digital-Code-Wheel-Copy-Protection

While DRM today may been seen as overly aggressive and frustrating, copy protection methods of yesteryear actually brought along some charm whilst keeping the pirates at bay. One of the more notable examples of this was the code wheel - a collection of layered card held together by a split pin with windows revealing secret codes underneath. Althoug [ … ]

riqa1

Back in the late 1990s, while Lara Croft was happily raiding tombs on pretty much every platform you could shake a stick at (even the maligned N-Gage got a port of Tomb Raider), Nintendo fans could have been forgiven for feeling a little left out. Sure, Nintendo 64 owners got to plunder hidden treasure in Indiana Jones and the Infernal Machine, but [ … ]

Watara-Supervision-Emulator-Wataroo-Released

While the Nintendo Game Boy may have ruled the handheld roost in the early nineties, it didn’t stop the many efforts from a wide range of companies to dethrone the portable king.
