Retro Games Update – October 2021

What is up RGL family, can’t believe it is October already. This year has gone by so quickly. Hope everyone is well, I am excited that conventions are back and will be going to one next month. Is anyone else going back to conventions? Apologies, due to my procrastination, the pre-order for ALWA’S AWAKENING has closed but is still available on Steam. The NES physical release was a demake of Indie Developers Elden Pixels Steam…

Mad Stalker Genesis and Abarenbo Tengu and Zombie Nation for NES Plus Switch Pre-Orders

I would have never thought that in 2021 I would have the opportunity to open new or reproduced, factory fresh games for my favorite 16 bit and 8 bit consoles. I hope the community continues to show support so that companies will continue to be motivated to produce the games that still bring us joy today. I did not have a Genesis growing up…

What is up RGL family! This much is very thin but there is a NES release so worth its own article even if I cannot find anything else. So I tend to focus on physical releases of games because that is where my love and passion lives. But, I also enjoy and am always glad to see the support of retro video games published virtually or on modern console collections. During the recent Nintendo Direct,…

Retro Games Update — August 2021

Welcome to the August 2021 retro games update, happy to announce some new physical releases for our favorite counsels. That said I am definitely seeing a substantial increase in the price of new physical releases on Kickstarter.

Retro Games Update June 2021

What is up RGL family, this months update ended up having some real bangers. I thought it was going to be a bit on the thin side but ended up surfacing some additional titles that haven’t been highlighted in previous updates. Unfortunately, one of the items I wanted to post was a Kickstarter that has already expired. It is a game published by 6502 Collective, so hopefully they will produce another run after the Kickstarter…

Retro Games Update April 2021

First, apologies this update is so late and at the end of the month. I didn’t have much in the way of updates for most of April, but a few late entries came through so I have enough to do a quick post now.

Retro Games Update March 2021

What’s up RGL family! Bringing you the monthly update on new retro games for our favorite retro consoles. We may also highlight previous projects that are still active or available for purchase or pre-order.

Is Retro Gaming Retro?

As my mind was wondering the other day I was thinking how we call this beloved passion retro gaming. Then Pat Contri and Ian Furgenson discussed this very topic on their CUPodcast. You may be asking yourself what is there to discuss?  Though this has become the accepted term, is it accurate and honestly, does it even matter either way.  Merriam-Webster defines it as typically referring to styles and fashion of the past, their example…
