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 […]

WildSnake for Sega Game Gear Found and Digitally Preserved

Being a fan of retrogaming sometimes has its better than average benefits.  For instance, it has recently been announced that a prototype for WildSnake on the Sega Game Gear has been found and has been digitally preserved by the team over at SMS Power.  Up till now, WildSnake was an unreleased game on the Sega […]

Fishbone on Nintendo Virtual Boy Reminds Us of Hungry Hippo Meets Fishing with Lots of Blood

This is one of the bloodiest games that you may ever play in your gaming life.  I mean look at the video below, this thing is nothing but blood, blood everywhere.  Okay, satire off.  That description could fit every release on the Nintendo Virtual Boy, considering it only displayed shades of red and black pixels.  […]

Wyvern Tales to Bring Final Fantasy Style RPG Action to Atari Lynx

The Atari Lynx was not exactly a barn burner with the fans.  Those that purchased it usually had a great time with it, me I always wanted one mainly for that Dracula game but not much else.  There have been some homebrew releases over the years, mostly thanks to Songbird Productions who has finished many […]

Nintendo Sold their 100 Millionth Game Boy Hand Held 15 years Ago – This Month in History – April 2000

Hard to believe that it was 15 years ago this month that Nintendo was able to announce this milestone.  In April of 2000, Nintendo sold their 100 millionth Game Boy hand held.  This runs the gamut across the Game Boy, Game Boy Pocket and Game Boy Color, still quite an accomplishment for a hand held […]

Revenge of the License: Austin Powers: Oh, Behave!

You have to give credit where credit is due. Outside of its twin program, Austin Powers: Welcome to my Underground Lair!, there’s really nothing at all like Austin Powers: Oh, Behave! available on any portable system. After spending some time with both of them, I’ve come to the conclusion that’s an incredibly good thing because […]

After Burner II Allows You to Pilot Your F-14 Tomcat through the Unfriendly Skies on the Sega Genesis – Today in History – March 22nd 1990

Sega’s Genesis was known for the arcade ports.  From Midnight Resistance to the Altered Beast and countless others, Sega knew they had an uphill battle.  Going with the arcade ports was smart for the 16-Bit era and it could have carried them well into the 32-Bit era had they done it right.  That is Sega’s […]

CYBER Gadget to Release the Retro Freak Game Console, 11 Platforms Supported Out of the Box

This is interesting news, especially considering that severe lack of information on the RETRO Video Game System.  CYBER Gadget Corporation is working on a console named “Retro Freak” which will purportedly play 11 different 16-Bit era consoles worth of games.  That is quite the backlog for many of us, and a chance to add to […]

Chrono Trigger Celebrates 20th Anniversary on Super Nintendo – Today in History – March 11th 1995

Time travel, a television and movie trope, was the basis of Chrono Trigger when Square Enix released this new role playing game in 1995.  Even though there was internal concern at Square Enix over this story mechanic, it is probably a large reason that Chrono Trigger was so well received by gamers.  Instead of the […]

Rocket Man is a New Game Boy Game in Development

New Game Boy games are not exactly beating gamers over the heads.  I am going to ignore the recent news about Flappy Bird finally coming to the Game Boy here since I want to focus on games people would actually want to play.  One such title in development is Rocket Man by Imanolea’s Games.  What […]
