Capcom Gives Fans Resident Evil Director’s Cut – Today in Retro Gaming – September 30th, 1997

resident_evil_directors_cut_sony_capcom_playstation_psone

When Capcom released the original Resident Evil onto the Sony Playstation console it was unique.  Never before had gamers been presented with a 3D horror game like this before.  No, I am not counting Alone in the Dark here as that was more of a 3D adventure game with monsters.  Resident Evil was a 3D […]

Jake Pawloski Interview – Griff the Winged Lion by Breakerbox Studios

griff_winged_lion_kickstarter_spryo

To say that I am excited for Griff the Winged Lion is about right.  This is a new 3D action platform title by Breakerbox Studios that is currently on Kickstarter.  Now, when checking out the video you will quickly realize that this team has huge respect for Spyro the Dragon on the original Playstation.  I […]

DariusBurst Chronicle Saviours Add Two New DLC packs and Playstation 4 Physical Release Announced

dariusburst_playstation_ps4_vita_steam_retro_shooter

Side scrolling shooters were once the cream of the crop.  Man, I remember playing Gaiares, Thunder Force III and IV etc on the Sega Genesis and loving it.  Back in the day I was pretty good at side scrolling shooters- today not so much.  I call it age rot or whatever but I still give […]

Sega Acquires Technosoft Franchises, Slowly Becoming Another Electronic Arts

sega_3d_archives_technosoft_nintendo_3ds_retro_retrogaming

Sega is a company that fans REALLY want to love and support but that love and support is more often than not met with lackluster Sonic the Hedgehog games.  This bothers a lot of the gaming populace that remember Sega of old. The Sega that released Comix Zone, Streets of Rage 1, 2 and 3 […]

Kingdom Hearts Mixes Disney with Square Enix on Playstation 2 – Today in Retro Gaming – September 16th, 2002

Kingdom Hearts Playstation 2

When I first heard about Kingdom Hearts I was a little dismayed.  I was, still am, a big Disney fan but I was coming out of the whole “Square rocks” phase of my gaming life.  I was interested in seeing what they did with, what was basically, a blanket Disney license like this (it surely […]

Kickstarter Pushing Spryo Inspired Griff the Winged Lion

Earlier this month we saw the original Spyro the Dragon turn 21 on the Sony Playstation.  Interesting how the universe works with these things as we were just contacted by a big fan of Spyro.  Jake Pawloski, and his development company – Breakerbox Studios, are such a big fans of Insomniac’s little dragon that he […]

Spyro Flaps Wings onto Playstation – Today in History – September 10th, 1998

spyro_dragon_insomniac_playstatin_sony_3d_action

When the Sony Playstation blew onto the gaming scene it represented a COMPLETELY new era for both games but also the fans that enjoy playing them.  Insomniac was fresh of the release of Disruptor- a first person shooter that was not exactly “more of the same” in that genre.  The same can be said of […]

Sony Asks Are You Red E with Playstation Console – Today in Retro Gaming – September 9th, 1995

sony_playstation_console_september_9th_1995

Sony was kind of new to the console market when they released their original Playstation console.  I say “kind of” because the closest they came to launching a console prior was the Super Nintendo CD-ROM add-on/combo unit they were working on with Nintendo.  Kind of new to consoles because Sony did work with both Nintendo […]

Henshin Engine Hits Kickstarter Bringing PC Engine Turbo Grafx 16 Action Platformer Home

henshin_Engine_PC_engine_turbo_grafx_16

New Turbo Grafx-16, also known as PC Engine in Japan, games are not all that regular today.  Fans have become accustomed to maybe one new game for this console per year, if that.  Compared to the Sega Genesis and Atari 2600 new game output by independent developers, this is rather sad.  Someone didn’t tell Sarumaru […]

Mother Russia Bleeds Brings Back Scrolling Brawlers for Steam Now Playstation 4 Soon

Mother_Russia_Bleeds_Devolver_Digital_Steam_Windows

Man, I really miss brawlers.  Even in their simplicity, they were something worth trying and many had unique takes on the genre.  No two brawlers were exactly the same.  Streets of Rage had the police back up options while Final Fight had oversized extremely detailed characters.  Now, Mother Russia Bleeds brings fatalities and pixel art […]
