RETRO REBOOT - Midnight Resistance (Sega Genesis)

Mind you, this my own opinion regarding this, while their library is awesome and they were ever present in arcades and on home consoles, Data East is a company that is rather slotted in the second tier of video game developers and manufacturers. A staple of the industry throughout the 80's and early 90's, they weren't necessarily the same household…

PC Buyers Of Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy Definitive Edition Can Earn A Free Game From Rockstar

In a year full of blundering catastrophes in video game development (that includes Balan Wonderworld, a game that went according to plan), but perhaps none creating more of a spectacle than The Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy Definitive Edition throughout 2021.

RETRO REBOOT - Earthworm Jim (Sega Genesis)
