Metroid to Receive Unofficial Prequel, Rogue Dawn, on Nintendo Entertainment System

To say that Metroid is a big name title for Nintendo is quite the understatement.  Metroid, while originally not a system seller, became just that by the time we saw the 16-Bit iteration and even on the Gamecube fans were still extremely interested in the adventures of Samus Aran.  Metroid: Rogue Dawn is a game […]

Target Store

Target Tuesday: Mortal Kombat 4

Neither Retro Gaming Magazine nor any member of our staff is associated with the Target chain of retail outlets. Michael just thinks this particular series of ads from the 90’s featuring “Respected coach and video gameologist Tom ‘The Thumb’ Blake” which ran in GamePro magazine was amusing. Thus we’re going to feature one every Tuesday […]

Retro Freak Console Update, Now with Pics

A while back we covered the Retro Freak console, a platform that will apparently offer owners access to no less than 11 consoles and hand helds of the past.  In that original post there was only a piece of concept art available, now there have been a few more pieces of concept art made available.  […]

Target Tuesday: NFL Blitz

Michael just thinks this particular series of ads from the 90’s featuring “Respected coach and video gameologist Tom ‘The Thumb’ Blake” which ran in GamePro magazine was amusing.

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]
