As you folks already know and have heard that GOG.com (Good Old Games), a service which offered DRM-Free DOS/Windows games, which were reconfigured/reprogrammed to work on XP/Vista/7 has closed their doors yesterday, with strong rumors brewing in forums around the internet regarding this apparently being an marketing stunt. Time will tell either way by the end of this week.
An update has been posted on their site regarding customers who wish to re-download their already-purchased games:
First of all, we apologize everyone for the whole situation and closing GOG.com. We do understand the timing for taking down the site caused confusion and many users didn’t manage to download all their games. Unfortunately we had to close the service due to business and technical reasons.
At the same time we guarantee that every user who bought any game on GOG.com will be able to download all their games with bonus materials, DRM-free and as many times as they need starting this Thursday.
The official statement from GOG.com’s management concerning the ongoing events is planned on Wednesday.
And back to our scheduled program:

Cute! Not much else to say here really :)
We’ve seen case mods of consoles in the past right? But a NES made of LEGO? Amazing work, and the video demonstrates it’s legitimacy as well!
If you were lucky enough to attend our retro-gaming panel at 2010’s AVcon Anime & Video Games Convention, you would have been succumbed to some pretty horrid TV commercials made for the consoles we did manage to demonstrate. Filefront have scrunged up 15 or so of what they reckon are one of the most God-Awful ads. Just a shame they forgot to include this ad:
“Great Idea DAD!” *shudder*
And finally, well… Those German cybergoths sure know how to drop some block-rockin’ beats! Eisenfunk proves such statement with gusto, with their EBM tune dedicated to the classic game Pong. Enjoy!!
