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 […]

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 […]

Prototype: New Version of Alien vs Predator Found for Atari Lynx

This is interesting news to say the least.  The Atari Lynx was Atari’s, only, hand held device to be released and, depending on who you ask, it was a horrible failure for the company.  We did see some great games for it though, games that, honestly, should have done better and could have had Atari […]

Google Cardboard Allows Gamers to Properly Play Nintendo Virtual Boy

The Nintendo Virtual Boy, for better or for worse, was quite the release for Nintendo.  For one, it was almost a unanimously bad commercial product.  Second, the way Nintendo handled the Virtual Boy cost them one of their lead designers, Gunpei Yokoi.  For many fans of the Virtual Boy though, it is not viewed as […]

Game Hack: Super Mario Bros 64 DS Becomes Sunshine 64 DS

The Super Mario Bros franchise has been a hit for Nintendo, which is a fact.  There is no doubting that Nintendo’s overall success has been greatly influenced by their little Italian plumber.  Even though Mario is huge for Nintendo, that doesn’t mean that his exploits always reach the platform that fans would like them to.  […]

Anyone here remember a little shooter title called Genetos?  In that game you played your way through scrolling shooter history.  From the early days of blocky graphics on up to the days of bullet hell, it was all well represented.  Why am I mentioning a shooter title in a news article for a Role Playing […]
