John Bardinelli - Contributor

John started playing games back in the dark days before the internet. You know, Game Boy link cables, multitaps and all of that. Now, with portable devices dwarfing the power of his first few gaming consoles, John mostly sticks to the PC and mobile worlds and has a particular fondness for retro-themed indie games. That, and Borderlands! Over the past decade John has written for more than a dozen gaming sites, covering everything from browser to mainstream games. Once the day's work has been done, he can usually be found with his nose in some ancient history or philosophy book. Next stop: publishing another game script, or maybe a regular old work of fiction!

When not writing or gaming, John has a summer home on Arrakis where he spends his leisure time wrestling sandworms.

Reagan Gorbachev, the Arcade Shooter You Never Knew You Wanted

Were you alive during the '80s? That's the 1980s, for anyone who's about to get all pedantic. You probably remember two world leaders who had something of a rivalry going on: Ronald Reagan and Mikhail Gorbachev. It took a few decades, but someone finally found a way for those two rapscallions to get along. Lucky for us it's a top-down arcade game and not some boring political whatever!
