From Cartoon to Game 2 of 6- The Raccoons

This is a personal favorite of mine, it is a niche title that most reading this will probably not know about. For those that do not know about The Raccoons, you need to check it out below. The show follows Bert Raccoon and his antics in the forest. Bert is not alone in the forest, […]

Psychonauts was the Game that Wouldn’t Die – Today in History – April 19th, 2005

To say that Psychonauts had a storied development would be kind of an understatement.  What started out in the wild world of the classic LucasArts title Full Throttle expanded, nearly died and was revived again by the hands of one man.  Tim Schafer.  What became Psychonauts was originally to be a drug filled romp through […]

Unreal Championship 2: The Liandri Conflict Brings Arena Style 3D Shooting to Xbox – Today in History – April 18th, 2005

The original Xbox was not exactly the barn burning success that Microsoft had hoped it would be.  That did not stop plenty of exclusive games, most First Person Shooters (FPS), from appearing on the console.  One such console exclusive was Unreal Championship 2: The Liandri Conflict by Midway and Epic Games.  This game is even backwards […]

Jade Empire Takes Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic Styling to Ancient China – Today in History – April 12th, 2005

When Jade Empire was announced for the original Xbox console it was one of the few exclusives that was truly interesting that wasn’t a First Person Shooter (FPS).   This was a chance for fans of Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic to experience something similar, but not a rip-off, but new and intriguing.  Microsoft […]

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 […]

Ralph Baer Father of Video Games

Ralph Baer, The Father of Video Games, Passes Away at 92 Years Old, Interview Reposted

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  This interview was originally made available on another site but they have seen fit to remove the content I made available, including the […]

Street Fighter V Ryy Capcom Fighting Arcade Playstation 4 PC PS4

Is Street Fighter V Set to Become a Game Changer Like Street Fighter II?

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 […]

Rumor: Battletoads Could Be Coming to Xbox Platform in 2016

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 […]

Volgarr the Viking Xbox One Crazy Vikings Studios 2

New Game: Volgarr the Viking on Xbox One, PC, Mac Reminds Us of When Games Were Tough

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 […]
