Google Stadia – Gamescom Connect Livestream

Google Stadia showed off a new Connect Live Stream at Gamescom, today, and as it began, the first thing I learned is that, like with BBC’s Click, no-one seems to have the ability to simply point the camera and shoot, as well as actually LOOK at the camera, since Ray Bautista was sometimes looking into […]

Atari VCS – forever delayed?

Atari VCS – it’s been delayed until the end of 2019… or forever. Whichever is longer. All this unit has to do is play Atari 2600 games and be a low-end PC, all of which could even be run on a smartphone processor, but all of sudden, it needs a high-performance chip? Pull the other […]

Play Expo 2016 – The DVDfever Review

Play Expo 2016 – another two days of gaming and cosplay, and so much fun that, once again, as the second day ended, I wanted to hide under a table and go where all the games go, as I like to imagine that there’s another location where the Manchester event continues for another five days… […]

Star Raiders on Xbox 360 (Xbox Live Arcade) – The DVDfever Review

Star Raiders is a game originally released on the Atari 800 in 1979, but I first played it when it came out on the Atari VCS in September 1982. It had a separate keypad especially made for it, but there’s just your joypad to go on here. Can you remember all the controls?? Well, it […]

Yars’ Revenge on Xbox 360 – The DVDfever Review

Yars’ Revenge – does the name sound familiar? If it does, then that’s probably because you’re also hovering around 40. Yars’ Revenge was always a curious oddity. You couldn’t stop playing, but you literally had no idea what was going on. That basically continues in this remake, although it couldn’t have anything less to do […]
