Capcom Revamps Franchise in Street Fighter Alpha in Arcades – Today in Retro Gaming – June 27th, 1995

What do you do when you are nearly at the end of being able to milk a franchise release?  You re-invent that franchise with better graphics, a new storyline and leave the core elements alone.  That is exactly what Capcom did with Street Fighter Alpha.  Sadly, this gave Capcom yet another franchise, within a franchise, […]

Don’t Squash that Bug! On Sega Saturn – Today in History – May 11th, 1995

Sega.  A company that is held close to many a gamer’s heart.  A company that used to be awesome.  A company that only once almost became the bride instead of the bridesmaid of gaming.  They were SO close SO many times to doing all things right that it is almost a running joke in retro […]

Kirby’s Avalanche Brings Puyo Puyo Puzzle Adventure to North American SNES Fans – Today in History – April 25th, 1995

The Super Nintendo was, for many, the best console ever.  Sure, that is a lofty statement and one that is VERY subjective based on the person making it.  The fact remains though, for a large group of gamers, both old school and new, the Super Nintendo holds up quite well.  One of the titles that […]

Bust-a-Move Expands Bubble Bobble Universe on Super Nintendo – Today in History – March 1st, 1995

Puzzle games are a dime a dozen, especially in today’s mobile market.  Just like years past, the good ones are the hard to find ones- those are the ones that continue to be enjoyable decades later.  Bust-a-Move is one such puzzle game.  My first experience with this franchise was the Neo Geo version at a […]

I Have No Mouth, And I Must Scream Released on Android and iOS

DotEmu are quickly becoming “that” video game company.  You know the type.  A company that does things that others are not and it is catering to the gamer that is ignored.  Let’s face it, their ports to Android and iOS are not going to set the world on fire with sales records yet they continue […]

Sega Rally Championship Slings Mud on Sega Saturn – Today in History – December 28th, 1995

Sega Rally threw the gauntlet of mud down and for the most part, Sony and Nintendo had nothing to counter with on this level.

Atari Karts on Atari Jaguar Turns 20 – Today in History – December 22nd, 1995

Atari was hurting for new, original, titles for their Jaguar console when it launched.  With a name like Atari, you kind of have to do something original and interesting.  Sadly, the best they did was more of the same, although Tempest 2000 was pretty cool (it wasn’t an exclusive though).  We never got updates to […]

Motion Sickness Gets Six Degrees of Freedom with Descent – Today in History – March 17th 1995

The charge of 20th anniversaries just won’t let up as we see another iconic game celebrating that special date.  Descent by Interplay was one of those games that you either “got” or you didn’t.  There was no real “middle ground” to speak of.  Tasked with clearing out mines of malfunctioning equipment, you will have a […]

Source Code for Doom 3DO Released

Doom was THE first person shooter for a long time, even after Quake was released Doom was still holding its own with gamers.  Doom hit many platforms from the PC where it originated to less powerful consoles such as the Super Nintendo and even the Sega Saturn.  The Playstation versions were pretty darn good and […]

Hardware Hack: Playstation to Receive SD Card Adapter, Possibly by Year’s End

We have recently covered similar SD card adapters for other platforms so it is only fitting to cover the Playstation version that is currently in the works by the talented team behind the “PSIO”.  PSIO stands for Playstation Input/Output for those that don’t know and it could be out by the end of the year.
