27 Years Ago Altered Beast Rose From the Grave!

AlteredBeast

Sega released Altered Beast on the arcades 28 years ago. A year later Sega developed a “perfect” port for the Genesis system and released it on August 14 1989. The port of Altered Beast was touted to be an identical recreation of the arcade version. But, this simply wasn’t true, and while Sega did manage […]

Dynamite Headdy Proves Using Your Head Works – Today in Retro Gaming – August 4th, 1994

Dynamite_Headdy_Sega_Genesis_retro_retrogaming

Sega had a lot of work ahead of them when they were able to take the lead in the 16-Bit race.  Nintendo was coming with the Super Nintendo and it was guaranteed to be a sales success and Sega knew it.  While Sega fumbled quite a bit early on, they were able to turn things […]

Month of August: Oddballs in Gaming!

Almost everyone in the world has experienced having an oddball or two in their family. That one strange uncle we never speak about until the family reunion. Perhaps even that quiet cousin who collects the bones of dead animals in his garage! Well, videogames are no different to people in this regard. A lot of […]

Retro Gaming Over Saturation – Are We There Yet?

Mega_Man_Anniversary_collection_retro_Capcom_rerelease_retrogaming

It seems that with each new release of hardware in the console and hand held worlds we see re-releases of retro games.  Whether these are compilations of classics or single releases themselves.  This has been going on since the first follow up console was released in the 1980’s.  Companies have been working to monetize past […]

Micro Transactions Could Save Arcade Games as we Knew Them

Arcade_Machines2

Back in the day arcades were king.  This was in the 80’s up to the early 90’s when home consoles were still underpowered.  When the Playstation and Sega Saturn came out though, while still underpowered by comparison, the quality of ports was much better.  This spelled the downfall of arcade games.  Gamers were no longer […]

Lee Brothers Beat up Gangs in Double Dragon – Today in Retro Gaming – July 2nd, 1987

Double_Dragon_arcade_brawler

When you think of arcade brawlers there are not many names that will top Double Dragon.  Technos knew they had a good blend of unique to the competition gameplay and graphics with this one.  Sure, there were other brawlers available before Double Dragon but none captured the fan base that this arcade unit did.  When […]

Scales

At most you see the occasional recall (see: Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas over the unfinished “Hot Coffee” content) or the ESRB threatening an Adults Only rating to prevent it […]
