Take Down Nazi Forces in Wolfenstein 3D on PC – Today in History – May 5th, 1992

Okay, back in the early 1990’s PC gaming was COMPLETELY different than it is today.  We actually went to stores and bought games.  We didn’t have online capabilities standard in games.  We barely had modem, land line, multiplayer.  Direct, in the same room multiplayer was common around this time.  We also would call or write, […]

Demon Castle – Homage to Castlevania Coming to Android

Okay, what was once planned to be a Flappy Bird clone that had Castlevania style graphics has morphed into a homage to the classic Konami title.  Demon Castle is not a rip-off of Konami’s title, more of a celebration by a fan.  What we now have is a procedurally generated action platform title pitting you […]

Jazz Jackrabbit Jumps Past Mario on PC – Today in History – May 3rd, 1994

While today 2D side scrolling action platform titles are a regular occurrence, they are still not as popular they were on consoles 20+ years ago.  Jazz Jackrabbit was not perfect but it was lightyears ahead of similar titles on personal computers of the time.  If you were a fan of action platform titles and only […]

Game Hack – Play Zelda in A Link to the Past, Save Link

With the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) coming up and Nintendo already stating a Zelda game will be there, I figure it is a good time to promote some Zelda hacks.  The other Link to the Past hack that I just wrote up is getting a bit of interest for various reasons.  This hack though, while […]

Game Hack: Legend of Zelda – A Link to the Past Gender Neutral Version Released

There has been quite a bit of interest in the “alternate” gender of Link that was pointed out in the art book, Hyrule Warriors.  It seems that Nintendo’s Eiji Aonuma has even hinted that a female version of Link could be playable at some point in the future.  That is all fine and dandy but […]

Flicky Unsung Hero of Sega’s Games Arrives on Genesis – Today in History – May 1st, 1991

Tell me if you can.  Who has the most “background” appearances in gaming?  No, I don’t mean the turtles and the mushroom enemies of the Super Mario series since those are enemies- they are expected to appear.  I mean the little guys, the ones that hardly anyone knows the name of but can point them […]

Wacky Wednesday: Smash TV’s Pleasure Dome

In Smash TV did Mark Turmell A stately pleasure dome decree: Where silver, sacred quarters ran Through coin slots, measureless, oh and An ending you can’t see. Apologies to Samuel Taylor Coleridge, but now that we’ve gotten Poetry 101 out of the way, let’s get to the meat of the matter: Smash TV. Developed jointly […]

Kirby’s Avalanche Brings Puyo Puyo Puzzle Adventure to North American SNES Fans – Today in History – April 25th, 1995

The Super Nintendo was, for many, the best console ever.  Sure, that is a lofty statement and one that is VERY subjective based on the person making it.  The fact remains though, for a large group of gamers, both old school and new, the Super Nintendo holds up quite well.  One of the titles that […]

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 […]
