  • Polymega: A Multi-Platform Retro Gaming Console

    Polymega: A Multi-Platform Retro Gaming Console

    At this year’s E3 convention, a retro gaming console that almost seems too good to be true was demonstrated for fans. It’s called Polymega, and it’s designed to support all of the major consoles of yore, like the NES, the SNES, the Sega Genesis, and even CD based consoles like the PlayStation and Sega CD. A catch-all console […]

  • Intellivision: New Throwback Console on the Way

    Intellivision: New Throwback Console on the Way

    The Atari VCS is gearing up for shipment next year, while the major video game brands like Nintendo and Sega are putting out their own retro consoles for the thrifty, nostalgic gamer. So it only figures that some new form of Intellivision would be here in the near future. Unfortunately, that’s about all we know as of […]

    Atari VCS: Pre-Orders Being Accepted Now (Video)

    I admit I haven’t been keeping a close eye on the development of Atari’s new home gaming console. The last time I wrote it up here it was apparently going by the name “Ataribox,” but at some point along the line it got a new name: The Atari VCS, which is now available for pre-order. It […]

    ‘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 […]

    Cary42: A Video Game Console in a Briefcase (Video)

    Remember when you were a kid and used to wonder what businessmen and other professionals were carrying around in their briefcases? Perhaps you’re in your 30s and still don’t have an answer to that question. But imagine how delighted you would have been if you’d opened up whatever briefcase had piqued your curiosity and found […]

    Nucleus: An Arcade Coffee Table

    The retro arcade cabinet is a fine addition to any home, until it comes time to actually find a place for one in your living room. It looks fine if you’re going for an “All That green room” vibe, but for a more mature home gaming solution, there’s now the Nucleus arcade coffee table. When […]

  • C64 Mini: Miniature Commodore 64 Coming Next Year

    C64 Mini: Miniature Commodore 64 Coming Next Year

    The miniature gaming console trend is getting out of hand. My social media feeds this afternoon are flooded with people complaining about sold-out SNES Classic Editions and the consequent price-gouging on the secondary market, and now I found out that Retro Games is putting out a miniature version of the Commodore 64 next year, called […]

  • SNES Classic Edition Announced by Nintendo

    SNES Classic Edition Announced by Nintendo

    Hopefully, although I’m not that optimistic, you were able to get your hands on an NES Classic Edition before they were discontinued and relegated to eBay for all eternity. If you didn’t though, you might have another chance to get something that’s (arguably) even cooler – the recently announced SNES Classic Edition. The SNES Classic […]

    Sega Forever: Classic Sega Games Coming to Mobile (Video)

    Nostalgia is running higher than ever in the video game world, and pretty much everybody in the game is figuring out ways to cash in on their back catalogs. Sega Forever is the latest example, a new collection of classic games from every Sega console coming to iOS and Android mobile devices. Sega Forever games […]

  • STOA Replay Arcade Cabinets

    STOA Replay Arcade Cabinets

    I’ve always wanted to own an arcade cabinet, preferably a S.T.U.N. Runner, but really any authentic cabinet from back in the day would be pretty cool. So I’m a little bit vexed—but not surprised—that I could also spend that money on a new custom STOA Replay cabinet instead. An STOA Replay cabinet is specially customized […]
