Contra Hard Corps Drills Super Nintendo Contra III Into Ground – Today in Retro Gaming – August 8th, 1994

When we initially got the first bit of news about Contra Hard Corps for the Sega Genesis the press of the time pointed out another game, Gunstar Heroes a lot.  There was mention that Konami must be going all out because they lost so many programmers to the recently formed Treasure (developer of Gunstar Heroes).  […]

Sega Genesis Receives Zelda Clone Crusader of Centy – Today in Retro Gaming – June 16th, 1994

Nintendo had the Legend of Zelda series since the 8-Bit days.  Sega kind of was lacking in the action game with light role playing elements category.  Sure, Sega had the Phantasy Star series but that was more of an answer to Square’s Final Fantasy series than Zelda.  It took until June 1994 before there was […]

Jazz Jackrabbit Jumps Past Mario on PC – Today in History – May 3rd, 1994

While today 2D side scrolling action platform titles are a regular occurrence, they are still not as popular they were on consoles 20+ years ago.  Jazz Jackrabbit was not perfect but it was lightyears ahead of similar titles on personal computers of the time.  If you were a fan of action platform titles and only […]

Mega Man Soccer Replaces Blasters with Soccer Balls on Super Nintendo – Today in History – April 2nd, 1994

Nintendo has shown over the years that there is quite a bit of money to be made in iconic characters doing uncharacteristic things.  Mario started as a girder climber, then a running and jumping plumber.  Eventually Mario saw a short career in pharmaceuticals and even racing.  Capcom was paying attention around 1993 when Mega Man […]

Castlevania – Bloodlines Shows Genesis Fans Darker Europe – Today in History – March 17th, 1994

Konami used to care about fans.  For proof of this just look at the 16-bit era.  Castlevania during this period was THE game to get if you were into action, adventure and hard as nails gameplay.  The cool thing about this era is that every console or handheld that received a Castlevania game got an […]

Battletech Brings Overhead Giant Robot Stomping to Sega Genesis – Today in History – February 2nd, 1994

Giant robots and gaming seem to go together quite well.  While a bigger thing in anime, giant robots hold their own in gaming.  From anime to board games to video games, giant robots kick butt and fans can’t get enough of them.  Whether it be Robotech, Voltron, Transformers or the subject of this article- Battletech- […]

Revenge of the License: Bart & the Beanstalk (GB)

Let’s play pretend. You’re a highly-paid, highly-intelligent defense lawyer. You specialize in helping people accused of doing bad things to clear their names. But today, while sitting in your office preparing briefs, a bizarre new case drops in your lap, one which could set a precedent for not only legal but gaming history as well. […]

Hardcore, Unreleased Sega Genesis Action Shooter Shown

Okay, 1994 would have rocked had we had some of these titles that were in development, presumably for release that year, available.  Especially if you are a Sega Genesis fan, I mean, can you imagine playing Elite in 1994?  Or how about Hardcore, another unreleased title for the Genesis that was in development 21 years […]

Blaze Proves the Commodore Amiga Was Capable of Sonic the Hedgehog

While Sega never supported the Commodore Amiga with any games, they did later support Windows 95/98 PC’s, which did not stop Warp Software’s Keith Bugeja from taking on Sega’s mascot with a clone of his own.  Blaze is basically Sonic the Hedgehog for the Commodore line of computers, of course it is a clone and […]
