Five years ago I had the fortune of getting in contact with Ralph Baer, affectionately known as the “Father of Video Games”. I conducted an interview with him, which is available below. This interview was originally made available on another site but they have seen fit to remove the content I made available, including the […]

Way back in the early 1990’s the Sega Genesis was fighting a ferocious war with Nintendo and their SNES console. Things were somewhat of an uphill battle for Nintendo when they finally launched their 16-Bit console. Not only were they coming from the underdog position (not easy for them considering their dominance in the previous […]
Recently Microsoft trademarked the name “Battletoads”, a rare property that was published by Tradewest on the Super Nintendo, Sega Genesis, Game Boy and NES while Electronic Arts released an arcade game using the toads with ‘tude. This is interesting news considering what has happened a year or two after Microsoft trademarked “Killer Instinct” a while […]
It is no secret that Microsoft is kind of taking a beating with the Xbox One versus the Playstation 4 right now. While there are many possible reasons for this, I like to think it is a case of lack of retro content available for the platform- Sony has their whole PSOne Classics catalog of […]

I remember the fervor that built up around the Resident Evil series, not once but twice, over the years. The first time was the release of the original game on Playstation- magazines such as Gamefan and Electronic Gaming Monthly were covering it like crazy showing pics from early builds and following the story. Gamers reciprocated […]
The team over at Hardcore Gaming 101 have just released the 158 page compendium for the Castlevania series. This is THE book for Castlevania fans on your holiday shopping list, and it is available on Amazon (both print and Kindle editions).
It is pretty much accepted fact that Nintendo’s censorship policy literally gave the Sega Genesis a slight upper hand when the original Mortal Kombat was released on home consoles. 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 […]
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 […]
