Let’s say you hit the jackpot. You just chased down one of the biggest licenses you could hope to land. A legendary bulwark of American cinema based on a best-selling novel by Mario Puzo, “The Godfather” is a guaranteed slam-dunk in the gaming world no matter what you deliver.

Splatterhouse 2 Drops Gallons of Blood on Sega Genesis – Today in Retro Gaming – August 3rd, 1992

Splatterhouse 2 was the first title in the series to hit a Sega console.  The first game was an arcade game and hit the home on the PC Engine/Turbo Grafx-16 console.  Namco continued the 2D side scrolling action with this sequel.  Blood poured and guts fell as you progressed in this 16-Bit action game.

Dragon Warrior III Gives Erdrick Origin Story on Nintendo NES – Today in Retro Gaming – June 12th 1992

Origin stories in comic books are commonplace.  Not so much in video games.  That did not stop Enix (now Square Enix) from doing just that with Dragon Warrior III on the Nintendo Entertainment System.  Released in 1992, the game was the final part of the trilogy that makes up the Erdrick storyline- it is told […]

Kid Chameleon Masks Abilities on Sega Genesis – Today in Retro Gaming – May 28th, 1992

Sega throughout the 16-Bit era, and many would argue the 8-Bit era too, was constantly trying to find a mascot.  They did this by throwing just about every game that was well put together and had a cool hook to it out to gamers.  The problem with this method of mascot hunting was, not many […]

Take Down Nazi Forces in Wolfenstein 3D on PC – Today in History – May 5th, 1992

Okay, back in the early 1990’s PC gaming was COMPLETELY different than it is today.  We actually went to stores and bought games.  We didn’t have online capabilities standard in games.  We barely had modem, land line, multiplayer.  Direct, in the same room multiplayer was common around this time.  We also would call or write, […]

Atari Shuts Down the 7800 – Today in History – January 1st, 1992

A good six year run is what the Atari 7800 had in North America.  It could have been longer had Atari played their cards right in licensing the NES.  They didn’t and it cost them dearly.  Interestingly, the Atari 7800 was announced a good two years BEFORE it was released.  They announced it in mid-1984 […]

Streets of Rage 2 Continues the Beat Down – Today in History – December 20th, 1992

There is no denying that the Streets of Rage series is one of Sega’s most popular outside of Sonic.  It is a tragedy of gaming that they have not kept SoR updated on newer platforms like they have Sonic.  Streets of Rage 2 continued the beating up of multiple enemies that started with the original […]

Mickey Mouse Leads Charge on Sega Genesis in World of Illusion – Today in History – December 17th, 1992

In gaming there is a loose theory that says the third game in a series is going to usually be crap.  That is why it is a loose theory, it doesn’t really apply unless your name is SNK.  Sega had slowly been nicking away at the armor of Nintendo for years and with World of […]

Disney Magic Hits the Super Nintendo with The Magical Quest starring Mickey Mouse – Today in History – December 23rd, 1992

Ah the tale of Mickey Mouse versus big bad Pete is a story that is pretty timeless, one that has gone on for decades (longer than Mario and Bowser by a long shot).  Disney are a protective lot, not just anyone with the dough can make a Disney game, or at least it used to […]
