Revenge of the License: Deathtrap Dungeon

Quick show of hands: how many growing up in the 1980s recall Fighting Fantasy game books? These little works of genius were the brainchild of British designers Steve Jackson and Ian Livingstone and spawned a whole slew of imitators. These books took what was already awesome about the Choose Your Own Adventure novels (the idea […]

Race Mickey and Friends Around Walt Disney World Quest- Magical Racing Tour on Playstation – Today in History – March 23rd, 2000

Most people reading this have had at least one fleeting notion in their lives to go racing around the attractions at Walt Disney World/Land.  Come on, you know you have wanted to put the pedal to the metal on at least one ride.  Whether that be Haunted Mansion or Space Mountain, one of the attractions […]

Take Kratos to Hades and Back in God of War for Playstation 2 – Today in History – March 22nd, 2005

God of War was one of the first games that I saw on the Playstation 2 that really made me sit up and take notice.  I knew of the PS2 prior to God of War but it was more passive interest for me.  The idea of controlling this guy that was to take on the […]

The Red Star box

Revenge of the License: The Red Star

A year before Liberty Prime proclaimed Communism as the very definition of failure in Fallout 3, XS Games unveiled the project they had taken over from Acclaim after that studio went belly-up and declared bankruptcy in 2004. This project had languished in development hell for three years and was released far too late in the […]

VipEüt Asks What Would WipEout Look Like on Vectrex

Demakes, taking a newer game and porting it to an older console that is probably not powerful enough to run it, is popular in the retrogaming world.  We have seen things such as Halo 2600, Far Cry 4 for Sega Genesis/SNES and more over the years.  The Vectrex, a defunct console released by Milton Bradley, […]

Coerce Demons to Aid Your Efforts in Persona 2: Eternal Punishment on Sony Playstation – Today in History – March 11th 2000

The Persona series was a huge gamble for Atlus, at least in North America.  We did not get any of the Shin Megami Tensei games (Persona in Japan) for the Nintendo or Super Nintendo or Game Boy, etc.  The first game in this extremely long running series to hit North American shores was Revelations: Persona.  […]

Chrono Trigger Celebrates 20th Anniversary on Super Nintendo – Today in History – March 11th 1995

Time travel, a television and movie trope, was the basis of Chrono Trigger when Square Enix released this new role playing game in 1995.  Even though there was internal concern at Square Enix over this story mechanic, it is probably a large reason that Chrono Trigger was so well received by gamers.  Instead of the […]

Update- Slain Successfully Funded on Kickstarter with Time to Spare

Late last year we covered Slain, previously called 7 Towers, and how it was coming this year.  The team behind Slain have since then put the game on Kickstarter and just recently successfully passed their minimum goal.  Now Slain will finish its Kickstarter run in about 18 days so there is plenty of time to […]

Renegade Racers Defies Water Physics on Playstation – Today in History – March 9th, 2000

It is not all that unique in gaming to have real world physics completely, and utterly, ignored in favor of making a fun game possible.  This happens in virtually every video game that is not a simulation of some sort.  Physics aren’t all that fun in most games since they keep the player stuck in […]
