Nearly 90% of Old Games are Unavailable

A new study from the Video Game History Foundation has revealed that nearly 90 percent of games made before 2010 are “out of print”. Only 13 percent of games from before 2010 are still available to purchase today, with that number dropping to a pitiful three percent when looking before 1985. This isn’t good enough. Doesn’t it just perfectly frame the constant battles with the likes of Nintendo over old games? The community protects and preserves thousands of titles that…

Red Dead Redemption Might Return

It’s been rumoured for almost as long as the infuriating Silent Hill stuff, but it might actually be happening: Red Dead Redemption might be making its return. Red Dead Redemption has been rated in Korea. In 2023. And that doesn’t make much sense unless it is being re-released in some way or another. Now that doesn’t mean it’s the remake that we’ve all been waiting for and, yes, expecting for the last few years. The rumours were pretty certain –…

There is Too Much Assassin’s Creed On the Way

Assassin’s Creed is the only game Ubisoft seem to be making, with 11 new titles in the works. That’s according to a leak that’s also promising a Black Flag remake. That’s four single-player games, three multiplayer games, two VR games (an unreleased game and a sequel to the unreleased game), a mobile game and, yes, a Black Flag remake. Why? Who the hell knows? That’s a lot of Assassin’s Creed. It might be too much Assassin’s Creed. Think about it.…

Mario Vs Sonic: New 2D Chaos

Nineties warriors unite: it’s time for the battle of Sonic and Mario to rage again. For the first time in forever, new major 2D entries in both franchises will be coming to fans. And to celebrate I propose we do away with the corporate worship of modern gaming fandoms, and beat the shit out of each other in the schoolyard instead. Because look at how awesome our heroes look in the picture above. Look at the edge, the sheer cool…

The Metal Gear Collection is a Treasure Trove

There was a time when I was certain the newly announced Metal Gear Solid Collection would be a cash grab. I hoped I’d be wrong. Taking the original HD Collection off the shelf and just smashing it on PS5 would have been very, very easy. Even the addition of the original Metal Gear Solid felt a bit like we were getting additional value. But as part of the Nintendo Direct, Konami confirmed exactly what we would be getting. They also…

New Game Boy Game Released, and I’m Lovin’ It

I sometimes complain about the lack of surprising news in the gaming industry. Well, here’s what I’m talking about. A new Game Boy Colour game has been released… and it’s been put out by McDonalds. No, this isn’t a madlib. You heard it right. The game, Grimace’s Birthday, can be played in your browser or on your phone. It even sits on a suitably retro website. Or, because this is the internet and people take seconds to do this sort…

Starfield: And That’s Marketing

Starfield had a blowout today as part of the Xbox conference, and it’s safe to say it did its job. Opinion on the game has shifted dramatically. Not that the muted reaction to it before was ever fair. I think a nice combination of Fallout 76, Bethesda’s reputation for janky launches and general attitude to Xbox made people comfortable to knock it. And maybe those people will still turn out to be right. But before it felt like those critics…
