Not only do PC gamers have more control over their games, but they can keep playing games released in ages of yoreeven if it sometimes takes intermediary software like DOSBox. Console gamers don't have that same luxury, but fortunately, there are emulators for console game hardware that allow that software to... Read more...
The best recipes combine different ingredients that may or may not seem like they go together, and then out comes something wonderful. This does not apply to just food, either. Case in point, a modder/maker found a delightful way to combine retro gaming (awesome), Spotify (also awesome), and alcohol (mmm, booze!) into... Read more...
For many people, the golden age of PC gaming was the DOS era. Or maybe that is just my nostalgia kicking in.

The desktop environment was completely overhauled to offer easier navigation and a better experience overall. It was also the first... Read more...
Ahhh, the 90s! Jean shorts, Big Johnson t-shirts, fanny packs, and of course, MS-DOS gaming. I can remember spending hours playing games like Crusader: No Remorse, Wolfenstein 3D, Duke Nukem 3D, Road and Track Presents: Need for Speed, and yes even the original Worms (usually in my high school drafting class when I...
