Sponsor Game N Train in Extra Life Charity Gam-a-thon

timthumb Game N Train, a website I contribute to  twice monthly, is seeking sponsorship in their effort to raise funds for Extra Life. Several staffers from Game N Train will be participating in a 25 hour game-a-thon to raise funds for Extra Life, Children's Miracle Network, and the participating hospital of their choice.

Head over to the charity event page over on Game N Train to learn more, and to find out how you can participate and help out a hospital near you.

Going beyond old school in a review of 1982 Namco arcade game Bosconian

I recently wrote an article taking a look at the forgotten arcade classic Bosconian.

Bosconian is a multi-directional, space invaders style arcade game produced by Namco over thirty years ago. It's hard to believe such an innovative game could have been so forgotten, but here we are. In researching the article, I even found a severe lack of any kind of Bosconian related fan art. This game truly is a gaping hole of unknowledge, threatening all those who dare seek knowledge of it. Or maybe it just wasn't a very memorable game, especially on western shores.

Check out the article now up on Game N Train and learn all about the history, gameplay, and my own personal pet peeves about Bosconian.
