Alien vs Predator Box

Revenge of the License: Alien vs. Predator

If the last two weeks of reading this column have left you feeling like the licensed gaming gods are a capricious lot with no regard for humanity, sanity, or financial stability–good. You’re starting to get the picture. But every so often things work out and balance is restored for a few precious hours. That balance […]

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 […]

Adamantium Rage Box

Revenge of the License: Wolverine: Adamantium Rage

You can argue with the rest of the internet until your keyboard bangers are worn down into worthless little bone-tipped spurs, but you will be unable to stem the Super Douchebaggery tide which inevitably overwhelms you should you claim Wolverine was anything less than the best at what he did back in the 1990’s. Listen, […]

New Game: Chariot Brings Umihara Kawase and Bionic Commando Style Mixed with Defensive Play to Modern Gamers

Umihara Kawase, an under rated Super Famicom game, featured gameplay similar to Bionic Commando where you had the ability to latch onto things and pull yourself up. Now, imagine that gameplay mixed with defending another character, similar to Ico on Playstation 2. That is the basic idea of Chariot where you are escorting the dead […]

It’s Thinking – Today in History- September 9th, 1999

The Sega Dreamcast was the last hope for Sega in the console market, we didn’t know it at the time and most of us just enjoyed it for what it was- a rocking console. There are multiple claims as to why the Dreamcast failed; we are not here to argue any of them. It died. […]

Blue Stinger Cover

Today in Retro Gaming – Blue Stinger (Dreamcast)

Listen, you may think you understand what trouble is. You think trouble is when you’re late to work after being stuck in rush-hour traffic. You think trouble is what happens when you pass a cop on the right. In a school zone. Going 55 miles per hour. With a burnt-out tail light. But you’re wrong. […]

Parasite Eve Box

Revenge of the License: Parasite Eve

My normal philosophy with this column is to introduce readers to lesser-known games, and maybe help them crack a smile or two in the process, but with its 16th anniversary looming on September 9th and the realization that it fit the parameters for this column, my course was set. We’ll return to our regularly-scheduled programming […]

Take to the Streets in Final Fight on Super Nintendo – Today in History – September 1st, 1991

Final Fight is one of those series that had so much going for it but for some reason, failed when the transition of gaming went from 16-Bit to 32-Bit (both the Double Dragon and Streets of Rage series felt this mishap also). Originally, Final Fight was to be a sequel to, the fairly popular, Street […]

Jurassic Park Sega CD Box

Revenge of the License: Jurassic Park

Michael Crichton’s ‘earn-all-the-money’ blockbuster novel and subsequent Spielberg film have left in their wake a Triceratops-sized pile of video game tie-ins, most of which could be appropriately categorized by Ian Malcolm as “one big pile of shit.” We, being the masochists we pride ourselves on being however, donned the Ellie Sattler gloves and began digging […]
