Video games in the 80s only depicted a certain amount of pixels on the screen. Fortunately, that didn't hold developers back from pushing the limits of the available hardware to play with our imagination by creating beautiful, handsome characters.
Announced back in March, the Xbox Live port of Dragon's Lair was dated for May 18 by Microsoft yesterday. The game will feature Kinect support, allowing you to jump out of the way of the Lizard King and dodge the columns on the mechanical horse, if you so prefer. Digital Leisure is handling the port and the Kinect…
Arcade classic Dragon's Lair has its share of critics, but because it was so beautiful for the time, it's also got its share of fans. Enough for there to be a market for a very slick documentary.
We don't often associate Disney with video games - not outside of its current push as a publisher, anyway - but in the late 1970's, turmoil at the famous animation studio inadvertently led to the creation of two arcade classics.
What game could Nintendo have possibly chosen as the 500th downloadable title for the Wii? It would have to be something super, yet smashing at the same time. The mind boggles!

I spent most of my time at California Extreme reminding myself why I never beat Dragon's Lair, but other people were busy winning tournaments and stuff at the massive arcade and pinball show.
There's something terribly familiar about wandering around a dilapidated insane asylum with crazy people ahead of you and instant-death traps all around you.
Finally, a use for YouTube! Even with 25 years of access to the original Dragon's Lair, I've yet to beat the game and snatch the lovely Princess Daphne from the clutches of the evil Singe. Fortunately, some YouTube know-it-all has uploaded and annotated a very handy real-time guide to completing the game, making us…
Mario's been dying that way for years, so, here's a video in which he tries on some new demises in search of a better good death. They missed Defender, where he explodes in a fireworks burst and burns white-hot thermite particles through anything on the screen. That would be funny. Certainly funnier than what happened…
