Defender of the Crown Cinemaware retro strategy amiga iphone itunes (1)

New Game: Defender of the Crown on Commodore Amiga Returns to iTunes App Store

Defender of the Crown holds the honor as being Cinemaware’s first game.  This feat is made even more compelling when you see the graphics, hear the sounds and play it on the Commodore Amiga.  Add the fact that Defender of the Crown was released in 1986 and then the game takes on a very interesting […]

Ralph Baer, The Father of Video Games, Passes Away at 92 Years Old, Interview Reposted

Five years ago I had the fortune of getting in contact with Ralph Baer, affectionately known as the “Father of Video Games”.  I conducted an interview with him, which is available below.  This interview was originally made available on another site but they have seen fit to remove the content I made available, including the […]

Street Fighter V Ryy Capcom Fighting Arcade Playstation 4 PC PS4

Is Street Fighter V Set to Become a Game Changer Like Street Fighter II?

Way back in the early 1990’s the Sega Genesis was fighting a ferocious war with Nintendo and their SNES console.  Things were somewhat of an uphill battle for Nintendo when they finally launched their 16-Bit console.  Not only were they coming from the underdog position (not easy for them considering their dominance in the previous […]

King of Fighters 2012 Now Free Celebrating the 20th Anniversary of Franchise

SNK has proven quite prolific in keeping their fans happy, either through re-releases of old franchise titles, taking established series in new directions or re-releasing formerly paid games as free.  SNK are not completely stupid in releasing King of Fighters 2012 as a free game.  There are ads interspersed in the game but the great […]

Dragon Warrior Quest III iTunes iPhone iPad Google Play Android RPG Square Retro 2

New Game: Dragon Quest III Now Available for Android and iOS

Dragon Quest, or Dragon Warrior for our North American readers, was a role playing game franchise that went nearly head to head against Final Fantasy back in the 8-Bit days.  Unfortunately, the transition to 16-Bit meant North American gamers would not see another Dragon Quest/Warrior game till the Playstation 2 (two generations removed from the […]

Emulation News: Nintendo Patents Game Boy Emulation on Other Platforms

Okay, this is a rather vague patent, much like most gaming related patents.  Basically, Nintendo has patented a method in which to emulate the Game Boy, presumably the DS line too, on platforms other than Nintendo bred units.  According to Tech Crunch this could include seat-back displays in planes and trains and even cell phones […]

New Game: Metal Slug Revolution Brings the SNK Classic Series into the Action RPG Realm

SNK Playmore are not scared to update their classics into new genres.  We have seen Metal Slug Defense (review here) where the classic shooter series was transformed into a tower defense game.  The King of Fighters has been transformed into a rhythm game and now, we have another Metal Slug game.  Metal Slug Revolution brings […]

Marlboro Atari Lynx retro hand held 3

Leery Licensing: Marlboro Licensed Atari Lynx, Plus Prototype Game

Atari was not scared to get out there and try weird things, like trying to convince gamers that the Jaguar was actually a 64-Bit console.  Anyhow, Atari was at least trying (Sega, I am looking your way concerning the Dreamcast).  Atari’s only hand held, the Lynx, was a decently popular device though it was, unfortunately, […]

Pokemon Blue Super Nintendo retro pokedex

Hardware Hack: Super Game Boy and Pokemon Blue Inside of Super Nintendo Cartridge

Everyone knows that Pokemon never hit the Super Nintendo, regardless of the fact that it was a raging hit on the Game Boy and Game Boy Color during that console’s lifespan.  Nintendo, for some reason, never released the little creatures into the home through their, then, flagship console.  Thanks to Reddit user mmmstephen, Super Nintendo […]
