Linux Journal - mar, 10/03/2017 - 07:20

It's no secret that I love classic gaming. It seems like every other month, I write about an emulation project or some online version of a 1980s classic.

Its chunky rectangle controller and two-button setup may seem simple today, but back then, it was revolutionary. more>>
