Last Week in Gaming – October 22, 2019

Welcome to TAG Roundup!

Ever wonder what you missed in the world of gaming last week? No worries – we’ve got you covered!

We read a ton of video game articles each week and wanted to share some of our favorites with the Average Gamer community. We’ll feature everything from previews to reviews and everything in between.

The articles we share will be from a combination of well-known sources (like IGN) and more niche blogs that you may not have heard of. In the previous TAG Roundup post, we talked about the PS5, Predator, Stardew Valley and more!

Here we go!

Riot Games News – Gamespot

Riot Games is mostly known for their hit MOBA game, League of Legends. Last week, Riot shared a boatload of updates on LoL and future games. Here’s a quick snapshot:

There were a few more minor announcements, but this is all great news for the gaming community to see a juggernaut like Riot branching out.

Anyone Up For Some MS-DOS Games? – Kotaku

As an 80s baby, I had the joy of playing old-school PC games like Hugo’s House of Horrors and Win, Lose or Draw. Recently, the eXoDOS project has introduced 2,500 games to the Internet Archive to fulfill all your nostalgia needs!

Sometimes it’s good to step away from the high-res world of present-day games and return to your roots. You can see some of the best DOS games in the video below and check out the library of availability titles by clicking on this button:

Gameboy Recreation – Wired

Continuing the nostalgia train, developer Analogue is building a mobile console that will play cartridges from your favorite systems. The Analogue Pocket features a custom-made processor which can handle games from every Game Boy console. In the future, you’ll also be able to insert an adapter to play titles from Game Gear, Neo Geo Pocket Color and Atari Lynx.

Analogue has some other cool features, including a tool for developing & porting games plus a digital audio app for synthesizing your own tunes. The console will release in 2020 with a price tag around $200.

Digital Board Game Console – Venture Beat

Door Kickers looks like a cross between My Friend Pedro and Broforce. Killhouse Games describes their side-scrolling desctruction game, below:

Door Kickers: Action Squad is an old-school side-scroller with a touch of strategy and tactics on top of the ridiculous SWAT style action. Literally kick the doors down, blast the bad guys and rescue hostages in explosive Single Player and Coop Multiplayer – with Couch play included. Launched in late 2018 on the PC, the game brings the full experience to consoles while also adding one new chapter with 12 new levels (The Slums) and a fun new playable character (the Off-Duty Guy). The new chapter and character will be available on PC as well as a free-for-all-players upgrade.

Door Kickers Action Squad is currently available on PC. It launches on Xbox One and PlayStation 4 October 24th and Nintendo Switch October 28th,2019.
