Fans of the original Turok on the Nintendo 64 will be pleased to know that a special remastered version of the hit shooter is coming to to Steam, GOG, and The Humble Bundle, on Thursday, December 17th.
Turok is back and no dinosaur is safe! When it was first released in 1997, Turok introduced gamers to a world teeming with cunning enemies, traps, puzzles and deadly weapons all within a vast 3D environment ready to explore. Now the classic game has been restored and enhanced with a new visual engine and exciting new features to sink your teeth into!
If you didn’t already know then you might be surprised to learn that Doom creators ID Software created their very own Super Mario Bros 3 demo on the PC. The demo was created to entice Nintendo to bring the game to the PC. Obviously this never happened and instead the project turned into Commander Keen. This is the very first time we’ve seen footage of the PC build of the game created by John Carmack and John Romero and you can check it out, below
This is a demo of IFD’s (soon to be id Software) Super Mario 3 demo created for Nintendo on the PC. The demo was completed on September 28, 1990.
One of the more impressive things about Devil’s Third was its online multiplayer and today Devil’s Third developer Valhalla Game Studios and Nexon have officially confirmed that it is coming to PC. As you would expect it should be a straight port of the Wii U online multiplayer mode. Valhalla Game Studios and Nexon are also holding a special Live stream on November 12th which is titled “Nexon X Valhalla Game Studio New Title Announcement Event” so we are bound to hear about what they’re working on next.
Thanks to Michelle for the tip.

If you had a Nintendo 64 as a kid you will probably remember the acclaimed Turok: The Dinosaur Hunter series from Activision. Well, it seems as though they are getting the HD remaster treatment, but only on PC for the time being. Turok and Turok 2: Seeds of Evil are being re-released digitally by Night Dive Studios.
“Both games will be re-mastered for today’s modern computers with enhanced graphics and other improvements. Night Dive Studios believes that classic video games should never be abandoned or forgotten. They should be available to play at any time, run out of the box without the hassle of installing outdated drivers, or using obsolete hardware. Movies are restored, books are digitized, and art is preserved to be appreciated for all time. Why should games be any different?”

If you’re thinking of teaming up with PC players or Wii U players with Devil’s Third online multiplayer mode then you are not in luck. The game’s producer Tomonobu Itagaki has confirmed via Facebook that the action title will not support cross-platform play between Wii U and PC for the online component.
Curve Digital has revealed that it is bringing RageSquid’s PC title Action Henk to consoles this Summer.
Henk is a bizarre action figure who loves to race across various environments as fast as possible. You’ll be able to run, jump, and butt-slide across 70 different levels, with the objective of shaving as much time as possible off your personal best time. Earning medals across the stages unlocks more characters and courses. You’ll also be able to take part in boss levels which grant access to additional bonuses.
Here’s what RageSquid co-founder Roel Ezendam had to say about the news:
We’ve been overwhelmed by the reaction to Action Henk on PC, but it’s always a game we wanted to see in the hands of console players, so the decision to work with Curve Digital – with their reputation and experience – was a simple one. We’ve got some big plans for the console versions and can’t wait to see PlayStation, Xbox One and Wii U players racing up the leaderboards.
