GAMES How things changed from the 1980's to the present day! The computer, once barely able to summon the power and CPU cycles to run a word processor, can now multi-task, provide top-quality graphics and sound, and even emulate the old machines of previous decades! In a window! While doing other stuff! Amazing!

Below, the writers both describe how to beat the newest of games, but also go into fascinating technical details about how the game hardware itself functions. Great stuff.
