Sega Dreamcast Visual Memory Unit Receiving Pokemon GO Port

Pokemon_GO_logo

Okay, who amongst you reading this remembers the Sega Dreamcast Visual Memory Unit (VMU)?  For those that do not remember, it was a removable memory card for the Sega Dreamcast console which doubled as a small gaming on the go device.  Since the VMU had a screen, controls and a couple of action buttons, it […]

9 Sequels That Kinda Sucked

Thumbs_Down_Samus_From_Other_M

  Every series has one game in it that just doesn’t compare to the rest. This can happen for a number of reasons; limited budget, trying to fix what isn’t broken, or a game is handed off to a completely different team that doesn’t understand what makes the series so special. Here are nine cases […]

Did Sega Turn Down the Nintendo 64 Hardware?

Sega_64_logo

It is almost the point that gamers can point to that was the fall of Sega.  Releasing a ton of add-ons for the Sega Genesis seems to be the point that most game companies point at when asked why they didn’t support the Sega Saturn.  That Sega was all over the place.  They were actually.  […]

Review – Phantasy Star II for Sega Genesis

PSIITitle

  In 1990, Sega released Phantasy Star II in North America, the second installment in the sci-fi RPG series. The story takes place 1000 years after the events of the first game.

Bomb on Basic City for Sega Genesis Released on Cartridge

Bomb_Basic_City_Sega_Genesis

Back in June I covered the release of Bomb on Basic City, a new Sega Genesis game by the guy that created Papi Commando.  For those not familiar with Bomb on Basic City, the premise is simple- you control the speed of a plane and dropping bombs on the city below destroying it.  Now, fans […]

27 Years Ago Altered Beast Rose From the Grave!

AlteredBeast

Sega released Altered Beast on the arcades 28 years ago. A year later Sega developed a “perfect” port for the Genesis system and released it on August 14 1989. The port of Altered Beast was touted to be an identical recreation of the arcade version. But, this simply wasn’t true, and while Sega did manage […]

Contra Hard Corps Drills Super Nintendo Contra III Into Ground – Today in Retro Gaming – August 8th, 1994

Contra_Hardcore_Sega_Genesis_Konami_retro_retrogaming

When we initially got the first bit of news about Contra Hard Corps for the Sega Genesis the press of the time pointed out another game, Gunstar Heroes a lot.  There was mention that Konami must be going all out because they lost so many programmers to the recently formed Treasure (developer of Gunstar Heroes).  […]

DonaldDuckasMauiMallardinColdShadowU007

It is no secret that recently Disney re-released three classics on to the popular GOG.com service.  That is great news and just got me to thinking about what other Disney games from the 16-Bit days that need to be re-released.  It took a bit of work but here is my list.  I already covered the […]

Sega Genesis Scooby Doo Mystery Spanish Translation Released

Scooby_Doo_Mystery_Sega_Genesis_point_click_retro_retrogaming_Acclaim_Spanish

I like to keep our friends that speak other languages in the loop of new releases.  For instance, Spanish speaking readers may be interested in Scooby Doo Mystery for the Sega Genesis- a game that was previously only available in English.  This is a traditional point and click adventure game, now available to Spanish gamers […]

Shining in the Darkness Unleashes Hellish Dungeon Romping on Sega Genesis – Today in Retro Gaming – August 6th, 1991

Shining_Darkness_Sega_Genesis_retro_retrogaming

First person dungeon crawling adventures and me go WAY back.  I love them.  Probably my favorite genre, especially those that allow you to control a single person (I view everyone extra as just stats and equipment mules).  While not a single party first person dungeon crawler, Shining in the Darkness is still quite awesome.  I […]
