Retro Gaming Halloween Style, Part Five: Disaster Report

Yeah, yeah, everybody makes their lists about scary, creepy, or flat-out weird games to play each October and we’re not about to buck the trend. But we’re going to assume you’re a retro gamer who’s read enough to know the big franchises everybody else writes about. Because if you’ve picked up a controller in the […]

Revenge of the License – Alien 3

Continuing with our theme of Halloween Horror, this week’s column focuses on what, for most people, is the worst film in the quadrilogy. We can argue the merits of the film all day long, but if you’ve never seen the Assembly Cut, then you can keep your opinions to yourself because you are already wrong. […]

Revenge of the License – The Ring: Terror’s Realm

OK, seriously, I have started writing this entry half a dozen times. It is due to go up on the site in twelve hours, I have nothing at all to show for it, and it’s starting to piss me off. Even when I’m not playing it, The Ring: Terror’s Realm manages to shit in my […]

5 Obscure 8-Bit Gaming Licenses You Don’t See Anymore

Licensing a celebrity, sports star, company and others are nothing new in gaming. I have seen many liceneses in gaming over the years. Movie stars, movies themselves, even commercials have made the jump to become a license for a game many times over. Most notably, licensing occurs in sports with each new iteration of whatever […]

Revenge of the License – Space Hulk: Vengeance of the Blood Angels

It’s October! Tradition dictates in October that we go looking for games which go well with a Halloween theme, because what about the first half of this sentence was unclear?  We got an early start with last week’s column, and we’re rolling right along. Today we’re looking at a game with a similar first-person shooter […]

Symphony of the Night box

Today in Retro Gaming – Castlevania: Symphony of the Night (PS1)

Maybe you were one of those slow adopters. You weren’t about to throw money at whomever released their 32-bit system first. You weren’t some die-hard Nintendo fanboy, you didn’t crap yourself with joy when Sega’s Saturn arrived on store shelves four months early, and you weren’t about to give that Sony upstart the time of […]

Silent Hill 2 PS2 box

Press Start: Silent Hill 2

It might not have been the first game I bought for the PS2 (that would be Dead or Alive 2: Hardcore because I wanted an excuse to beat the holy living crap out of my friends without worrying about a subsequent restraining order), but it was the reason I (and a metric crap-ton of other […]
