VN32X Brings Visual Novel Games to Sega 32X Console

1459615836_vn32x-v0-0-1-proto002

The Sega 32X died a rather quick death in terms of video games are concerned.  There simply were not a lot of games released for the Sega 32X console.  Sega tried.  They really did.  We got stuff like Star Wars Arcade and even a Knuckles Chaotix game that showed the add-on could do really good […]

Capcom Gives Fans Resident Evil Director’s Cut – Today in Retro Gaming – September 30th, 1997

resident_evil_directors_cut_sony_capcom_playstation_psone

When Capcom released the original Resident Evil onto the Sony Playstation console it was unique.  Never before had gamers been presented with a 3D horror game like this before.  No, I am not counting Alone in the Dark here as that was more of a 3D adventure game with monsters.  Resident Evil was a 3D […]

Fallout Brings Windows Gamers Alternative Historical Post-Nuclear War – Today in Retro Gaming – September 30th, 1997

War is something that is eternal in gaming.  Pretty much every electronic thing that has been released that plays games has had a war game of some sort.  Sure, that war game may have been with colorful graphics and bouncy sound effects but there was a war going on.  Fallout by Interplay, for Windows computers, certainly […]

Video games are fast becoming a major spectator sport these days with games like League of Legends and streaming channels like twitch.tv. And now the UK has Dara O Briain’s Go 8 Bit! I caught the 4th episode of this comedy video game show on Dave (a Dave Original) at 10pm on Monday. Read on to […]

Nintendo Gives Game Boy Players Pokemon Red & Blue – Today in Retro Gaming – September 28th, 1998

Pokemon Red

When Nintendo brought over the Pokemon franchise it is unclear if they knew it would have been as big a success in the North American market or not.  Sure, now we can look back and say they did everything right and reaped the success from it.  While many players raised all kinds of trouble, at […]

Homeworld Hits Windows Real Time Strategy Fans from 3rd Dimension – Today in Retro Gaming – September 28th, 1999

What would civilization do if presented with an advanced piece of technology, such as a space ship?  Robotech asked this in Anime and we see it in Homeworld by Sierra Entertainment for Windows computers, released in 1999.  While gamers were probably getting sick of real time strategy games by 1999, who could blame them, Homeworld […]

When the original Dragon Warrior game was released on the Nintendo Entertainment System it was quite a departure from the norm.  Prior to Dragon Warrior there were not exactly a lot of role playing games like it available for the new NES console.  Enix, now part of Square Enix, was onto something and they were […]

Jake Pawloski Interview – Griff the Winged Lion by Breakerbox Studios

To say that I am excited for Griff the Winged Lion is about right.  This is a new 3D action platform title by Breakerbox Studios that is currently on Kickstarter.  Now, when checking out the video you will quickly realize that this team has huge respect for Spyro the Dragon on the original Playstation.  I […]

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 […]

Carl Mixon Interview – Global Game Gear Protective Cases

Recently I covered a new protective sleeve for the Atari 2600 line of cartridges.  For those that do not know, the Atari 2600 library has never shipped with any kind of protective sleeve (at least none I am aware of).  Global Game Gear has created a solution to protect the fantastic artwork that many Atari […]
