Vanishing Point Burns Rubber in Cars, Trucks and SUVs on Playstation – Today in History – February 5th, 2001

Racing games are a staple of gaming.  We saw them in the early days on the Atari 2600 in Night Driver.  We saw them propel forward in the 8-Bit days with Rad Racer on NES.  16-Bit gave us great titles like Outrun and Super Hang-On while 32-Bit heralded in the age of the “Racer” series […]

Battletech Brings Overhead Giant Robot Stomping to Sega Genesis – Today in History – February 2nd, 1994

Giant robots and gaming seem to go together quite well.  While a bigger thing in anime, giant robots hold their own in gaming.  From anime to board games to video games, giant robots kick butt and fans can’t get enough of them.  Whether it be Robotech, Voltron, Transformers or the subject of this article- Battletech- […]

The Avengers Go CGI in Arcade Game Galactic Storm – Today in History – January 31st, 1996

Marvel seems to not be able to do any wrong right now with their franchises, especially the Avengers.  The success they are experiencing with this franchise in movies is unprecedented.  There are the individual films for all of the team members, well minus Black Widow, and then there is the success of the team effort.  […]

Allied General Lets Players Take on World War II – Today in History – January 31st, 1996

Turn based strategy war games are not all that popular in today’s market and that kind of sucks.  I grew up playing computer games a lot in the 90’s and it seems that was the golden age for this genre.  Sure, the late 80’s and early 90’s probably had more turn based strategy war games, […]

“Any suggestions, Admiral?” “Prayer, Mr. Saavik. The Klingons don’t take prisoners.” Space…the final frontier. These aren’t the voyages of the Starship Enterprise.

Sword of Vermillion Brings Action Role Playing to Sega Genesis – Today in History – January 28th, 1991

When you have someone on staff like Yu Suzuki you have to let them spread their wings and fly.  With Sword of Vermillion that is exactly what Sega did- this was Yu Suzuki’s first console exclusive title, sadly it was not exactly a sales record setting release.  Sword of Vermillion was a few game engines […]
