How Goofy Killed Desert Bus

Posted on November 23rd, 2009 by Frank Cifaldi

Hi folks! I know I haven’t posted here in a while, but I thought some of you might appreciate knowing that (among other things) I’ve been writing a semi-monthly column about unreleased games for the Retronauts Blog on I did this thing about Titan Warriors for the NES, which was pretty cool, but even cooler is a little piece called How Goofy Killed Desert Bus.

Desert Bus

This piece has edited excerpts from my recent interview with Mark Morris, who was a programmer with Absolute at the time that Penn & Teller’s Smoke and Mirrors was under development. And hey, it (and this post) are oh-so-conveniently timed with this year’s Desert Bus for Hope charity event. So go put the video stream on in the background and snuggle up with the interview, then get inspired and donate all of your money to Child’s Play. It’s the American way.

The legendary lost game from Seta has finally been found! But is this the end of Lost Levels?!

It should come as no surprise that the worst Star Trek movie would have made the worst Star Trek game.

Review: Colors

In this exclusive Lost Levels review, we take a thorough, introspective look at Colors, the GTA-alike that would have saved the Gizmondo. SPECIAL BONUS: Sodomy inside!

Elusions: Thunder Force VI

A brief retrospective of the butt-rockingest series of shooters that ever was, and the Dreamcast sequel that wasn't.

Spotlight: Pescatore

A glitchy puzzle game with multi-colored seafood that bears more than a striking similarity to PuyoPuyo? Not very fresh.

Elusions: Final Fantasy 64

Is it possible that yet another title from this popular series has eluded fans for over a decade?

Spotlight: Bashi Bazook

We promise this is the last unreleased Jaleco game we'll ever talk about. Maybe.
