The Revenge of Shinobi Slices up the Competition – Today in Retro Gaming – December 2, 1989

Sega’s original Shinobi first appeared in the Arcades back in 1987. With its well designed multidirectional side-scrolling levels, varied enemy characters, end of level guardians, Ninjitsu special magic move, and general smooth gameplay, the game became a huge hit. The game was soon ported over to many home platforms, including Sega’s own Master System console, […]

Virtual Currencies and How They Have Evolved

Money makes the world go round–not just in real-life, but in gaming universes as well. Gaming currencies can often go completely unnoticed, or they are simply something that players take for granted. It isn’t often central to the main storyline, but gaming money often sets the rules for what you can and can’t do within […]

Update – Xenocider Features New Level on Sega Dreamcast, Pre-order Options Updated

The story of Xenocider is kind of messed up.  You see, this is a brand new, original game for the Sega Dreamcast and it failed at their Kickstarter campaign.  Not enough people showed up to support it and we saw it fall to the wayside for a bit.  That has not stopped Retrosumus, the developer […]

Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3 Hack Restores Arcade Features on Sega Genesis

The Sega Genesis was always the “second run” console when it came to ports from other platforms.  This happened nearly all the time throughout the life of Sega’s 16-Bit console.  One time in the history of the console, Sega did come out ahead concerning a port.  That was Mortal Kombat and only because Nintendo heavily […]

Kickstarter – Coffee Crisis New Sega Genesis Brawler

Brawlers are a lost art in today’s world.  That is a simple, cold hard, fact.  For some reason the scrolling fighter genre has fallen on hard times.  I come from a period of gaming when Streets of Rage, Final Fight, Rival Turf, and River City Ransom ruled the roost.  With Coffee Crisis I can see […]
