A Retro Gamer’s 12 Days Of Christmas: The Twelfth Day, Donkey Kong Jungle Beat

On the twelfth day of Christmas my true love sent to me, twelve drummers drumming If you haven’t guessed by now, I am a big music and video game geek. Yes, I still own every original console I had as a kid and yes, I was a band nerd. Self shame will not allow me […]

A Retro Gamer’s 12 Days Of Christmas: The Eleventh Day, Pipe Mania

On the eleventh day of Christmas my true love sent to me, eleven pipers piping Eleven pipers piping is obviously a reference to playing a wind instrument and if you would like to explore the use of such a device in the world of gaming might I suggest Super Mario Bros. 3, The Legend of […]

A Retro Gamer’s 12 Days Of Christmas: The Tenth Day, Diablo

On the tenth day of Christmas my true love sent to me, ten lords a-leaping I could have gone two different ways with this entry. One, I could have focused on the word leap and asked you to take a huge leap of faith in believing that Seaman for the Dreamcast is a real video […]

A Retro Gamer’s 12 Days Of Christmas: The Ninth Day, Moonwalker

On the ninth day of Christmas my true love sent to me, nine ladies dancing I likes to get funky. In the immortal words of George Clinton, “Free your mind and your ass will follow”. Sadly, my dance move repertoire is limited to the white boy shuffle. Even if the steps are pointed out to […]

My Favorite Gaming Hidden Gems, Part Three: Metal Marines (1993, SNES)

Prior to the PlayStation, which got ports of games like Command & Conquer and Warhammer: Shadow of the Horned Rat, military strategy sims are in short supply, and good military strategy sims are rarer than Detroit Lions championship rings. That’s not to say they don’t exist on the 16-bit machines, but task a gamer with […]

A Retro Gamer’s 12 Days Of Christmas: The Fifth Day, Sonic CD

On the fifth day of Christmas my true love sent to me, five golden rings. Believe it or not, the fifth day topic was hard to decide upon. While I am not the biggest fan of Tolkien’s books or the movies based on them, there are several good Lord of the Rings games that span […]

A Retro Gamer’s 12 Days Of Christmas: The Fourth Day, The Beatles: Rock Band
