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 […]

Mike Tyson's Punch-Out box

Undiscovered Punchout Code Discovered 30 Years after Release

It is no secret that there has been a new Easter Egg discovered in Mike Tyson’s Punchout for the Nintendo Entertainment System.  This is an interesting one too as it is subtle but works every time you try and make use of it.  It is interesting that many people such as Shigeru Miyamoto have stated […]

Mojon Twins to Release Six New Games via Spanish Crowd Funding Service

The Mojon Twins are not new to our readers here at Retro Gaming Magazine.  I have covered their releases over the years and readers have shown amazing support.  Recently, one of our readers alerted me to the fact that the Mojon Twins are releasing six new games via a Spanish crowd funding service.  Here are […]

Mega Man Soccer Replaces Blasters with Soccer Balls on Super Nintendo – Today in History – April 2nd, 1994

Nintendo has shown over the years that there is quite a bit of money to be made in iconic characters doing uncharacteristic things.  Mario started as a girder climber, then a running and jumping plumber.  Eventually Mario saw a short career in pharmaceuticals and even racing.  Capcom was paying attention around 1993 when Mega Man […]

Bonk Brink of Extinction More Information Released on Canceled Title

Bonk.  The redheaded stepchild of gaming mascots was never quite able to gain traction.  Bonk’s popularity was good enough for NEC/TTI/Hudson to release several titles based on him.  We got a shooter (Zonk) and several platformers in the Bonk universe.  After the demise of the Turbo Grafx-16, Hudson kept Bonk alive releasing titles for the […]

Bases Loaded Strikes out Competition on Nintendo NES – Today in History – April 1st, 1991

Ah, sports games.  This is a genre that I have done my best to avoid in these historical articles.  The reason being, for the most part, sports games don’t age well.  Bases Loaded is one of the few that, while not having aged well, still holds a great place in my heart as a gamer.  […]

Target Renegade Sequel to NES Classic Hits – Today in History – March 26th, 1990

Target Renegade was the sequel to the original Renegade game that also appeared on the Nintendo Entertainment System.  Target Renegade is a brawler, similar to Final Fight and Double Dragon.  Considering there are only two action buttons there are many required button combinations to successfully navigate all of the moves available to your fighter.

Mega Man Battle Network Lets You Play a Robot in a Computer – Today in History – March 21st, 2001

Okay, here is a premise that is somewhat unique in description if not in execution.  You are tasked as playing Mega Man in a tactical role playing game.  Fine so far, we have seen this many times in gaming.  Here you are playing Mega Man inside of a computer though.  Matrix maybe?  Not really.  This […]

Mega Man Redux Visually Improves Upon Original NES Classic

Capcom did a remake of the first Mega Man on Playstation Portable back in 2006.  Fans have decided to do a remake of their own.  Graphically improving the original Mega Man on the Nintendo Entertainment System, this hack almost breathes new life into a classic.  Similar to what was done for Super Mario Bros in […]

Whomp ‘Em Foregoes Native American Niceties on Nintendo Entertainment System – Today in History – March 20th, 1991

Native Americans are one group that has gotten the short end of the stick when it comes to video games.  Sure, they have been featured, poorly, in titles such as Custer’s Revenge (Atari 2600) and plenty of western games over the years.  The problem is, all of those appearances were “off” about the heritage of […]
