    ‘Sega Ages': A Collection of Classic Sega Games Coming to Nintendo Switch

    It’s a good time to be a nostalgic video game enthusiast. The Nintendo Switch has no shortage of games from your wasted youth, and Sega recently announced a whole … well, “new” probably isn’t the right word … of Switch releases under the Sega Ages banner. The first, naturally, will be Sonic the Hedgehog, and you don’t have […]

    ‘History of Game Controllers’ in 76 Seconds (Video)

    Last week I watched a short film by French filmmaker Alain Resnais, which traced the making of a red plastic bowl all the way back to the origins of Earth minerals. I’m reminded of Le chant du Styrène because a recent video simply called History of Game Controllers takes a similar, if much less ambitious, backwards approach to […]

    Credit Card Chess Set by Innovo

    All you really need to play chess is a grid and 32 pieces, which means there’s plenty of room for innovation in the field of chess sets. The people at Innovo have opted to go for miniaturization, for a piece they say is “arguably the world’s smallest commercial chess set.” It’s known, in order to […]

  • ‘Monopoly Gamer: Mario Kart’ Board Game Variant Out Now

    ‘Monopoly Gamer: Mario Kart’ Board Game Variant Out Now

    If I were to try to think about two games that are pretty much the exact opposite of one another, Mario Kart and Monopoly may spring to mind.
