South Park PC Game Box

Revenge of the License: South Park

It took sixteen years, but we finally got a South Park game worth playing. South Park: The Stick of Truth is an utterly hilarious mash-up of childhood fantasy gone awry and modern gaming tropes. It’s a straight up legit way to kill several hours over the course of a long weekend, and it plays like […]

Silent Hill Lives on in Half Life 2 through Alchemilla Mod with Oculus Rift Option

Silent Hill is one of those franchises that appeared during the 32-Bit Sony Playstation days that simply has not died, at least till recently.  Konami recently announced that the new Silent Hill title is more than likely not going to see the light of day (in Silent Hill, was there really any light?).  The horror […]

Futurama the Great Unlicensed Adventure Awaits

Futurama is one of those cartoons for adults that was not quite as offensive as Family Guy but was not as family entertaining as The Simpsons. It is also one of the least ported to gaming cartoons that we have seen (it did get a PS2 or Xbox 3D action adventure but that is it).  […]

Film Noir Gaming Brings Cyber Punk Action Shadowrun to the Super Nintendo – Today in History – May 1st 1993

Shadowrun was an interesting title for the Super Nintendo (Sega’s version is COMPLETELY different).  Partly because it predated their “Play it Loud” campaign by a full year, even though it had quite mature elements to it (for starters your guy just got axed/murdered/is dead).  Shadowrun is also unique in that it was a cyber punk […]

Wacky Wednesday: ASCII Grip

Suppose you designed a video game controller that was meant to be used one-handed: how might you go about marketing this new technological marvel? Well, you could discuss the merits of using said one-handed controller with regards to helping you map while playing an RPG, take notes during an adventure game, or even drink your […]

Super Mario Bros 2 Hits the Nintendo Entertainment System- Today in History: April 28th 1989

Nintendo was still new to the sequel rituals when they released Super Mario Bros 2 on the NES, and boy did they go away from the norm for what a sequel was supposed to be.  Being almost a complete departure from the original NES title, in Japan the title used for the US SMB2 was […]

Castlevania II: Simon’s Quest Creeps onto the Nintendo Entertainment System- Today in History: April 27th, 1990

Taking place seven years after the original Castlevania, this installment takes a rather large departure from what fans knew from the first title.  Simon is on a pilgrimage to visit his family’s resting place and meets a lady that tells him that Dracula has placed a curse on the Belmont family (bummer).  Unlike the first […]

Time Trax Box

Revenge of the License: Time Trax

“These are the journals of Darien Lambert, Captain, Fugitive Retrieval Section, A.D. 2193.” With those words, we were introduced to actor Dale Midkiff’s action hero persona: a police officer from the future, sent back through time to retrieve Dr. Sahmbi, a renegade scientist using the past to hide from the law, and a cadre of […]

Duke Nukem 3D Box

Today in Retro Gaming: Duke Nukem 3D (Shareware)

“Damn! Those alien bastards are gonna pay for shooting up my ride!” With those words, 3D Realms laid into the FPS genre with gusto. Bringing Apogee’s 2D side-scrolling, planet-saving hero into the third dimension to compete with the likes of Doom was no easy task considering the whole internet was ablaze with talk of iD […]

Snatcher Being Ported to Nintendo Virtual Boy by Homebrew Developer

Snatcher, the digital comic that simply did not take off in North America like Konami would have liked.  Honestly, I cannot feign not understanding why it didn’t sell well.  First it was only available for an add-on device, the Sega CD, which did not exactly set sales records in the United States.  Second, it was […]
