Bonk Brink of Extinction More Information Released on Canceled Title

Bonk.  The redheaded stepchild of gaming mascots was never quite able to gain traction.  Bonk’s popularity was good enough for NEC/TTI/Hudson to release several titles based on him.  We got a shooter (Zonk) and several platformers in the Bonk universe.  After the demise of the Turbo Grafx-16, Hudson kept Bonk alive releasing titles for the […]

It is historical fact that Germany and Japan lost World War II.  Ring of Red tells the story of an alternate history where Japan was conquered by both Soviet and American forces.  This has led to a North Korea/South Korea situation that is rife with troubles.  Seriously, Harry Turtledove could have a field day in […]

This is a special opportunity to discuss what transpired during an integral part of the development of the RETRO Video Game System (now known as the Coleco Chameleon) by RETRO Video Game Systems Inc.

WCW vs the World Pushed Wrestling to New Heights on Playstation – Today in History – February 28th, 1997

WCW vs the World on the Playstation was the first Virtual Pro Wrestling title to come to the United States.  This is a serious distinction considering the Virtual Pro Wrestling engine is one of the better ones that gamers saw during this period.  The people behind it went onto become Aki Corporation who made No […]

R-Types Brings Arcade Originals Home to Playstation – Today in History – February 28th, 1999

Over the course of gaming, we have seen a ton of scrolling shooters come and go.  The genre that started with the likes of Defender and Space Invaders evolved all the way up to visually impressive titles such as Ikaruga and the various bullet hell games.  One series that has held its own over the […]

World's Scariest Police Chases box

Revenge of the License: World’s Scariest Police Chases (PS1)

One of these days I will learn not to open my mouth and express any opinions about video games when I’m around my editor. Innocuous comments made over Facebook chats often wind up condemning me to a week’s worth of misery. I point out how awful some game looks, and before I can finish the […]

Vanishing Point Burns Rubber in Cars, Trucks and SUVs on Playstation – Today in History – February 5th, 2001

Racing games are a staple of gaming.  We saw them in the early days on the Atari 2600 in Night Driver.  We saw them propel forward in the 8-Bit days with Rad Racer on NES.  16-Bit gave us great titles like Outrun and Super Hang-On while 32-Bit heralded in the age of the “Racer” series […]

Allied General Lets Players Take on World War II – Today in History – January 31st, 1996

Turn based strategy war games are not all that popular in today’s market and that kind of sucks.  I grew up playing computer games a lot in the 90’s and it seems that was the golden age for this genre.  Sure, the late 80’s and early 90’s probably had more turn based strategy war games, […]

Brain Dead 13 FMV Game Gives You Unlimited Lives Because You Will Need Them – Today in History – January 31st, 1996

A little disclaimer in the manual for Brain Dead 13 set the pace for the rest of the game.  You are given unlimited lives and will probably need all of them to survive Brain Dead 13.  For those that do not know about Brain Dead 13, it is a Full Motion Video Game (FMV) in […]
