Wing Commander Brings Cinematic Space Battles to PC Players – Today in Retro Gaming – September 26th, 1990

wing_commander-origin_pc_dos

To say Origin was ahead of their time is quite an understatement.  It is almost pointless to bring that back up, at least for retro gamers that were gaming around the “Origin Era” on PC’s.  For everyone else, Origin was this development company that was doing stuff gamers only dreamed of.  Take Wing Commander for […]

Ultima Online brought the world that Richard Garriott started a decade and a half prior to the Internet.  While not the first massively multiplayer online role playing game, Ultima Online was one of the earliest success stories of the genre.  This game brought this new genre to the forefront.  UO put MMORPG’s in front of […]

Okay, hang with me here.  The Wonder Boy series has been around the world many times over, especially during the 16-Bit era.  Most notably to North American gamers this game is familiar under a couple of names.  One is Monster Lair for the Turbo Grafx-16 CD-ROM, which not a lot of gamers shelled out the […]

Side scrolling shooters were once the cream of the crop.  Man, I remember playing Gaiares, Thunder Force III and IV etc on the Sega Genesis and loving it.  Back in the day I was pretty good at side scrolling shooters- today not so much.  I call it age rot or whatever but I still give […]

When other developers were looking at ways to maximize profits by way of comic books or television shows, Koei said, “Holy cow, it’s expensive to buy the rights to something current. Screw that! Japanese history is ripe for plunder and we don’t have to pay anybody a single yen to use their likeness because they’ve […]

Sega is a company that fans REALLY want to love and support but that love and support is more often than not met with lackluster Sonic the Hedgehog games.  This bothers a lot of the gaming populace that remember Sega of old. The Sega that released Comix Zone, Streets of Rage 1, 2 and 3 […]
