Street Fighter Alpha 3 Flawlessly Ends Trilogy of Arcade Games – Today in Retro Gaming – June 29th, 1998

It is not like Capcom to simply release a fighting game and not milk it somehow.  We saw this with Street Fighter II which has many updates, all of which were additional full purchases, on Super Nintendo and Sega Genesis. Maybe they realized fans were not going to go for that forever by the time […]

Shadow Gangs Kickstarter Now Live, Steam Greenlight Campaign in Progress

It was just 10 days ago that I wrote up my first article on Shadow Gangs.  In that period of time the developers have launched a Kickstarter campaign.  They have also been working to get their new game on Steam via the “Greenlight” program.  There is just under one month left in the Kickstarter campaign […]

Papi Commando Tennis Work in Progress for Sega Genesis

Okay, it is becoming quite clear that Papi Commando is going to be around awhile.  Vetea, the developer of the PC franchise, is keeping his little geriatric character moving forward.  First, we saw him in a Commando style action game (hence the name).  Since then he went onto star in another action game and now […]

Capcom Revamps Franchise in Street Fighter Alpha in Arcades – Today in Retro Gaming – June 27th, 1995

What do you do when you are nearly at the end of being able to milk a franchise release?  You re-invent that franchise with better graphics, a new storyline and leave the core elements alone.  That is exactly what Capcom did with Street Fighter Alpha.  Sadly, this gave Capcom yet another franchise, within a franchise, […]

Shining Wisdom Foregoes Franchise Standards on Sega Saturn – Today in Retro Gaming – June 27th, 1996

Shining Wisdom is an official part of the “Shining” series of titles.  That is fact.  In this release you are tasked with avenging your father’s image, defeating a great evil and setting the world right again. All in the day of an adventurer.  The difference between Shining Wisdom and Shining the Holy Ark, Shining Force […]

Saint_Sword_Sega_Genesis_Taito_Rastan_action_fantasy

Taito Releases Saint Sword onto Sega Genesis – Today in Retro Gaming – June 27th, 1991

What do you do when someone else has a really popular title?  Why, you copy it as best you can.  That is apparently what Taito did in the early 90’s when they released Saint Sword for the Sega Genesis.  They followed the idea of Rastan as best they could but as with most copycats, they […]

Bonds shared with the Virtual World Pt.2

There is a part one for this article! Seriously though, if you haven’t read it you should read the first part. While, the video presented in the first part of this article shed some light on the characters that we love and cherish for being who they are. Fleshed out individuals with goals and dreams, […]

The Bonds Shared with the Virtual World

Reality is one of the hardest things to face in our lives. The constant struggle that we face every day can make even the simplest of task extremely daunting. But, sometimes at the end of the day all you want to do is take a breather, lie down for a second, and connect with those […]

Sonic Brings Speed to Sega Genesis – Today in Retro Gaming – June 23rd, 1991

Sega were in a dire situation when they were pushing their Genesis console in 1991.  The Super Nintendo (SNES) release was looming in North America after a quite successful launch in Japan.  Sega was hurting.  Nintendo had Mario and it was well known that Super Mario World was going to be the pack-in title with […]
