Acclaim was between a rock and a hard place as far as the Super Nintendo version of the bloody brawler was concerned. History shows they went […]

Parasite Eve Box

Revenge of the License: Parasite Eve

My normal philosophy with this column is to introduce readers to lesser-known games, and maybe help them crack a smile or two in the process, but with its 16th anniversary looming on September 9th and the realization that it fit the parameters for this column, my course was set. We’ll return to our regularly-scheduled programming […]

Take to the Streets in Final Fight on Super Nintendo – Today in History – September 1st, 1991

Final Fight is one of those series that had so much going for it but for some reason, failed when the transition of gaming went from 16-Bit to 32-Bit (both the Double Dragon and Streets of Rage series felt this mishap also). Originally, Final Fight was to be a sequel to, the fairly popular, Street […]

From Cartoon to Game #1: Jem and the Holograms

The premise is simple here, folks. We are going to look at a series of cartoons from the 80’s that deserve a game today. The first cartoon on our list is Jem and the Holograms which debuted in 1985. Jem and the Holograms benefitted from the success of both G.I. Joe and Transformers (many staff […]

Alien Crush Unleashes Extra Terrestrials into Pinball – Today in History – August 19th, 1989

The launch of the Turbo Grafx-16 was the first, and only, foray into the North American gaming market for NEC (for more information on this see our historical look back here). NEC were pulling out all of the stops, at least as many as they could with their libary of launch titles. To say NEC […]

Night Trap retro Full Motion Video Sega CD Congress Horror

Kickstarter: Night Trap Revamped, it is Full Motion Video and it is Pretty Cool, Seeks Funding

Anyone that has been in gaming from the early days, or at least the late 80’s, will probably remember a time when gaming tried to go Hollywood. What this meant was, actors/actresses and real world stuff was used in more and more games. Not like Mortal Kombat but actual video footage was used to make […]
