5 New Ways to go to Hell with Doom

Doom is an iconic game, one that arguably kept PC gaming alive in the early to mid 90’s as the previous mainstay (point and click adventures) started finding their ilk was no longer wanted by gamers. Sales were slumping in most genres as consoles such as the Super Nintendo really started kicking butt and the […]

Gabriel Knight, Sins of the Fathers Coming to Android Later This Month

Ah, the classic point and click adventure game.  What retrogaming fan has not at least picked one favorite in this genre and then wondered why the hell more titles like it haven’t surfaced?  For me, that is probably Maniac Mansion, first experienced on the Nintendo Entertainment System.  I need to revisit Gabriel Knight: Sins of […]

Sega’s Answer to Tetris, Columns, Hit Sega Genesis 25 Years Ago – Today in History – June 29th, 1990

Back in the early 16-bit era Sega was in a bit of a pickle as far as offering a well-rounded game library.  If you were a sports or arcade game fan then, yeah, Sega had you covered with quite a few titles that the Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) simply could not do properly (though in […]

Retro Freak Pre-Orders Open in Japan, Fans of 11+ Platforms Rejoice at Once

The Retro Freak is a console that is definitely on our watch list around here at RGM.  It is promising quite a bit inside of its plastic casing, some might say it is will suffer from an identity crisis due to the sheer number of platforms supported.  While not supporting nearly as many as the […]

Five Retro Games Released Before Their Time

This list of games will cover many generations of consoles and computers that all have one simple thing in common: they should have waited at least one generation longer before being released.  This is somewhat confusing; as we look back now, it’s hard to realize what was released too soon since most of these games […]

Qix, the Game Where You Are Defenseless Hits the Game Boy – Today in History – May 24th, 1990

Tell a modern gamer that you want them to play a game where they are completely defenseless against enemies.  Also mention that you have no weapons at your disposal, at all.  Then bring up the beautiful fact that you must somehow reclaim large portions of the playfield to move to the next level.  Yes, I […]

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.  […]

Dungeon Kingdom to Make Early Access Available Soon

Okay, I have to admit, again, that I am a major fan of the first person dungeon crawler style role playing game.  It is a niche that I simply cannot get enough of.  You can keep your Legend of Zelda style overhead action RPG’s, I am content traversing the latest, or older, 3D first person […]

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 […]
