Game Over is an amazing action run and gun platformer that was a target of a huge controversy around its cover art by Luis Royo.
Let's take a look at this amazing story that helped selling lots of copies and placed Game Over as one of the most famous Spanish video games ever made.

I’ve just discovered the 1992 MegaDrive/Genesis port of Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, the action game, and I was positively impressed by this upgrade from the 1989 original home computer versions that I’ve played so much back then!
So, are you ready for some platforming action?...

While cleaning and reorganizing things on my renewed room, I was hugely struck by nostalgia when I was going through my collection. So many memories flashed right away through my mind, and I just sat and played some of my personal favorite video games on the systems that I have plugged in and ready to play.
Enjoy!

This game was released in October of 1986. Two months earlier, in August, Metroid was made available in Japan for the Famicom Disk System. In September, and also for the Famicom Disk System, Akumajou Dracula – aka Castlevania – was, as well, released in Japan. So, unknowingly, The Sacred Armor of Antiriad gave birth to the metroidvania subgenre.
Let's take a look!

33 years ago there was this little thing that, in Europe, revolutionized the home computer business! People were accustomed to black and white graphics and the ZX Spectrum came to the rescue with its rainbow motif!
Let’s take a quick look at its origins and point out my 26 favorite games on the system from this early model to the later ones!

The Rambo movie franchise was always a nice subject for video game developers to adapt and bring that armored mayhem to consoles and computers, so, in this episode of the Pixel THING we’ll be taking a look at the titles based in this 80s action movie hero!

20 years ago this revolutionary console took the world by storm. It was Sony’s revenge against Nintendo, but, the main victim ended up being Sega.
Let’s take a look at its origins and browse through my personal favorite 10 video games on the system:

Celebrating the 15th birthday of the PlayStation 2, I bring you a really tough challenge: narrow down its huge library to just 10 titles!
Is it possible?...
