Revenge of the License: Dark Seed

Over the lifespan of this column, we’ve looked at games licensed from every conceivable medium: blockbuster films, television shows, comic books, sporting events, fashion dolls, a casino, a restaurant, table top role-playing games, and even real life. Just when you sit back and think you’ve covered every conceivable thing a game company could pay money […]

Unreleased Neo Geo Fighting Game Discovered, Dumped Playable in MAME

It is no secret by now that there has been a new Neo Geo fighting game discovered.  Yeah, a prototype of an unreleased game.  The Neo Geo was a great system in both the home and arcades even though it carried a huge price tag (games for the home system were $200+ each).  Over the […]

Bonk Brink of Extinction More Information Released on Canceled Title

Bonk.  The redheaded stepchild of gaming mascots was never quite able to gain traction.  Bonk’s popularity was good enough for NEC/TTI/Hudson to release several titles based on him.  We got a shooter (Zonk) and several platformers in the Bonk universe.  After the demise of the Turbo Grafx-16, Hudson kept Bonk alive releasing titles for the […]

Drunken Pooper: Strange Tales from Classic Game Development

My first Atari 2600 game was far from original – although its origin was. A certain amateur developer entered a coding contest sponsored by the now defunct video game import company Lik Sang. His chosen genre for his entry: “fecal shooter”. He chose to reenact a situation in which his roommate placed a stinky, fully […]

Today in Japan Retro Gaming: Final Fight Guy (SNES)

Fans of Final Fight, Capcom’s genre-defining arcade punchfest, were understandably confused when it was released on the Super Nintendo. Let’s be kind: it, uh, wasn’t as arcade-perfect a port as Nintendo’s hype machine wanted us to believe. Gamers, being the ravenous, predatory species we are, pounced on every weakness. “What happened to the Factory stage?” […]

Splatterhouse 3 Asks You to Save Jennifer Again on Sega Genesis – Today in History – March 18th, 1993

In the history of video games there are not that many third party franchises that have not seen at least on release on a Nintendo console.  One such franchise that holds that honor is Splatterhouse.  No, I am not counting the “super deformed” game that was released in Japan.  Namco originally started Splatterhouse in arcades, […]

The Five Dumbest Mistakes I’ve Made As a Gamer

Everybody makes mistakes. We’re human, it’s OK to admit our flaws and imperfections. Most of them, hopefully, are momentary lapses of judgement: small errors that can easily be rectified or made right. Then there are the times you do something so moronic it makes you question your beliefs about how intelligent, sane, and sexy you […]

Bandit Gaming- Castlevania Coming to Atari 2600

Konami never brought Castlevania to the Atari 2600.  That is not stopping fans though.  While this is a work in progress, an early one at that, it is impressive already.  This is definitely shaping up to be an interesting homebrew release, from the music to the graphics as they stand.  This is a must see.

John Carlsen Interview, His Career and the RETRO VGS

This is a special opportunity to discuss what transpired during an integral part of the development of the RETRO Video Game System (now known as the Coleco Chameleon) by RETRO Video Game Systems Inc. It is clear that Mike Kennedy is the primary owner, as far as we know, of RETRO Video Game Systems Inc, […]

Coleco Chameleon Prototype #3 Proven Fake by Community of Retro Gaming Sleuths

Okay, this is getting a little long in the tooth.  The Coleco Chameleon as we know it now started life, publicly, about a year ago.  During the last six months we have seen the team behind this console go from no prototype to now their third “prototype”.  I put prototype in quotation marks because each […]
