While most gamers are busy salivating over the PS4, retro gaming fans have a lot to look forward to over the next few months, thanks to the debut of the Capcom Live Arcade Cabinet on the PlayStation Network and Xbox Live Arcade.
It’s hard to look at a game like Riven without the fog of nostalgia clouding my vision.
I remember spending hours playing the game, and its predecessor Myst, on my family’s old PC, taking down detailed notes and calling my dad in to help me with some of the harder puzzles.
I remember being completely absorbed with the world’s detailed environments, rendered in a more stunning way than any game I’d seen on my home consoles.
When I saw that developer Cyan Worlds had released an iOS version of the game as part of Myst‘s 20th anniversary, I was more than curious to see how a game I was so enamoured with as a kid held up after all these years.
