Sega CD Atmospheric Gaming You Forgot About


The Sega CD was one of those expensive add-ons that were popular in the late 80’s and early 90’s.  This add-on brought cutting edge CD technology to the Sega Genesis fans and then hampered it with 64 colors on screen at any given time (but it added rotation and scaling capabilities that the Super Nintendo […]

Revenge of the License: Alien Trilogy

Alien Trilogy box

One of iD Software’s initial ideas for Doom was to make a first-person shooter set in the world of James Cameron’s ‘Aliens’. When a licensing deal couldn’t be worked out between iD and 20th Century Fox, Carmack and Romero’s team fell back on a more generic ‘space marine kills everything’ setting, and an FPS classic […]

Sewer Shark Calls Gamers Names – Today in Retro Gaming – October 15th, 1992


Full Motion Video (FMV) games were quite new when the Sega CD was released.  At least as far as mainstream gaming goes because Sewer Shark and Night Trap are both about half a decade old upon their release in 1992 on the newly released Sega CD add-on.  Sega knew they had to get unique games […]

Produce Music Videos with Make My Video Starring Marky Mark and the Funky Bunch – Today in Retro Gaming – October 15th, 1992


Okay, this is one of those releases for the Sega CD that have gamers scratching their heads.  What was Sega thinking when this one got approved?  You also have to realize there were at least two more releases in this series (INXS and Kris Kross).  That makes it even more baffling that just the one […]

Cobra Command Brings Animated Arcade Rails Shooter Home – Today in Retro Gaming – October 15th, 1992


Full Motion Video is not all actors in, somewhat, scant clothing running from blood suckers ala Night Trap.  Or getting called names by your boss like in Sewer Shark.  No, sometimes Full Motion Video games are just cartoons similar to what we enjoyed on Saturday mornings in the 80’s (man, who misses THOSE days?).  Cobra […]

Night Trap Brings Congressional Hearings into Video Games — Today in Retro Gaming — October 15th, 1992

Night Trap retro Full Motion Video Sega CD Congress Horror

When Sega launched the Sega CD add-on they needed some games that really “wowed” the audience and could not be done on cartridge.  One company they went to that already had experience in this realm was Digital Pictures.  DP was one of those “really ahead of their time” type companies that was working with Full Motion […]

When you think of South America and video games you probably come up blank.  If you live in Brazil though you will probably know that there is still a very much alive, and thriving, community of gamers from the 16-Bit era.  Due to costs of importing electronics gamers that live in Brazil have learned to […]

Saru Interview – Henshin Engine

Henshin Engine

We don’t see a lot of new PC Engine, also known as Turbo Grafx-16, games come across Kickstarter.  That is why when I saw Henshin Engine I knew I had to write it up.  Write it up I did (here).  What we have here is a new action platform title that is now coming to […]

Mortal Kombat Demands Arcade Gamers FINISH HIM – Today in Retro Gaming – October 8th, 1992


Where were you on October 8th in 1992?  More than likely, if you were an arcade gamer, you were amongst other fans crowded around this new one on one fighting game called Mortal Kombat.  What set Mortal Kombat apart from the competition?  What made gamers HAVE to put in quarters to be the next one […]
