Ixion Sega Genesis

Dodge Bullets in New Sega Genesis Game

The Sega Genesis was arguably Sega’s best console. There, I said it. Sure, the Dreamcast was great, but Sega really shot themselves in the foot by letting it die so quickly. Had they fought for the Dreamcast like they fought for the Genesis I think things could have been different. Even though the Sega Genesis is long gone as far as commercial activity goes, fans have not let go so easily. Take Ixion for example. Right now, it is just a bullet hell dodging game – there are no enemies, but it is progressing.

Switchblade II

Switchblade II for Atari Lynx Sees First Hack Released

It is not all that often that I get to write about Atari Lynx hacks. This could be because there simply are not a lot of them. It could be because the portable was not all that popular. It could be because there are simply not many hacking tools for the Lynx. Whatever the reason, there has been a hack released for Switchblade II and it is the Atari Lynx version that has been hacked.

Sonic 3D Blast Director's Cut

Sonic 3D Blast Director’s Cut Released by Original Creator

Sega was nothing if not prolific with Sonic based games on their Genesis console. While that certainly changed on Saturn and Dreamcast, we still have the 16-bit platform that pushed Sonic into new genres like how Nintendo worked Mario in the 8-bit days. Sonic 3D Blast Director’s Cut is just that, literally the Director’s Cut because the Jon Burton did these edits himself, he should know the game in and out.

System Shock Remake

Top 10 Games Coming in 2018 to Watch for

2017 was a momentous year for gamers. From Nintendo’s Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild to Mario Odyssey on Nintendo Switch to cross platform success stories like Resident Evil: Biohazzard, 2017 was big. How will 2018 top arguably the best year in gaming since we left the Dreamcast to die? With more great titles of course.

Badass Hero

Badass Hero Headed to Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, PS4, Steam

2D. Side scrolling. Shooter. Wall to wall action. All traits of games from the 16-bit era. All traits of games that have all but died in the modern age. Did I forget to mention the art style is around the later 16-bit and early 32-bit era? A sweet spot if you ask me. A time when super detailed work was being created and for some reason (polygons) was abandoned for the most part. Badass Hero is the title in question and it is coming to the Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Steam.

Wild Guns Reloaded

Wild Guns Reloaded Nintendo Switch Bound

Anyone that owned a Super Nintendo probably can tell you their favorite shooter game. Most will not pick Wild Guns though. Why? I am not sure but this game originally flew way under the radar and, at best, garnered a cult following as time went on. This means prices are through the roof on eBay and other second-hand options. Natsume did bring out a remake of sorts called Wild Guns Reloaded, for Steam and PlayStation 4 in 2017 and now they are bringing Wild Guns Reloaded to the Nintendo Switch.

Bloodstained

Bloodstained Targets Nintendo Switch, Not Nintendo Wii U, Gameplay Video Embedded

While it is a sad day when a game is canceled, it is good to know that a new platform was added. This was all covered almost a year ago on sites such as IGN. Bloodstained was originally intended to hit the Nintendo Wii U as well as many other platforms but as detailed in that IGN article, the Wii U version was canceled, and the Nintendo Switch edition was added. Recently 505 games released a Nintendo Switch based gameplay video for Bloodstained. After the jump, of course.

Jurassic Park

Jurassic World: Operation Genesis – Dinosaur or Still Worth Playing?

Like the velociraptors it saw being brought back to life, there’s no doubt that the 2015 film Jurassic World did exactly the same thing for the big lizard franchise which had lain dormant since 2001 when the third film in the series had been released. And what an awakening it was. Almost immediately, it started breaking box office records eventually going on to gross $1.672 billion worldwide, all from a budget of $150 million.

Monster World RPG

Fan Creates Monster World, AKA Wonder Boy, Role Playing Game

The number of times I can count that an action game was remade into a role-playing game is low. Nintendo did it with Super Mario RPG and SNK did it with Samurai Shodown RPG. Other than those two examples I am out of references. While Monster World RPG is not an official release, it is still an interesting take on the source material.

New Atari 2600 Games You Don’t Know About

The Atari 2600 is often considered the grand daddy of consoles. While it may not have been the first, it certainly was the first to break through to the mainstream. While Atari of old is long gone and this console is mostly a novelty for collectors, that has not stopped fans from programming their own games for it. What is great about this series of events is, there are some good titles made by fans. The flip side of that coin is, well, there is a lot of crap as well. I am going to focus on the more interesting games that have been released by fans – there is no time limit on this one so buckle up as we explore new Atari 2600 games
