PlayStation Agony, Part 1: The Simpsons Wrestling

When Carl, the man I perceive as the primary antagonist in my life as a video game character, used a sledgehammer to defeat the lock on my door, my heart slid into my colon. “Time to pay the piper,” he said, holding up a paper shopping bag. “Donald Trump will be president, therefore you lost the […]

Revenge of the License: The X-Files (PS1)

‘The X-Files’ utterly changed the face of television. It scared us with ghost stories for adults. It boggled our minds with conspiracies within conspiracies. In its early days, before internet access was something everyone took for granted, it gave us a reason to visit the library and research topics ranging from alien abduction and the […]

We Took Super Mario Bros on the Go with Super Mario Bros Deluxe – Today in History – May 10th, 1999

When you think “killer game” you think of something iconic and classic.  Nintendo knew this when they launched the original Game Boy in the late 80’s.  They launched with Tetris packed in.  Smart move.  They updated the Game Boy over the years, most notably with color when they launched the, imaginatively named, Game Boy Color.  […]

R-Types Brings Arcade Originals Home to Playstation – Today in History – February 28th, 1999

Over the course of gaming, we have seen a ton of scrolling shooters come and go.  The genre that started with the likes of Defender and Space Invaders evolved all the way up to visually impressive titles such as Ikaruga and the various bullet hell games.  One series that has held its own over the […]

Streets of Rage 4 Concept Art for Failed Sega Dreamcast Game Surfaces

Okay, this is one of those “it could be true” type stories as this is surfacing quite a few years after the demise of the Sega Dreamcast.  It is pretty easy for this to be faked, almost as easy as making your own Stadium Events Nintendo Entertainment Cartridge (not like anyone would do that and […]

Armorines: Project S.W.A.R.M. Released on Nintendo 64: Today in History- December 2nd, 1999

Acclaim may be dead and gone now (they were one of the first licensees for the original Nintendo Entertainment System back in the mid 80’s) but it can never be said that they didn’t try new things in their games.  They may not have been successful with many of their titles but they tried anyhow. […]

Revenge of the License: Hello Kitty Cube Frenzy

The RGM offices are quiet bastions of sanity in an otherwise crazy world. Here, gamers work out their differences without resorting to immature, demeaning tasks like bologna-eating contests or challenging one another to come up with the largest number (‘Infinity’ is not a number, Michael. –ed). So if you think my game is weak, or […]

Retro Gaming Halloween Style, Part Two: Nocturne

Yeah, yeah, everybody makes their lists about scary, creepy, or flat-out weird games to play each October and we’re not about to buck the trend. But we’re going to assume you’re a retro gamer who’s read enough to know the big franchises everybody else writes about. Because if you’ve picked up a controller in the […]

Sonic Goes 3D and Escorts the Dreamcast to Gamers in Sonic Adventure – Today in History – September 9th, 1999

Sonic is quite an enigma as far as company/console mascots go. Starting life on the Sega Genesis and hitting every Sega console ever released with at least one game, Sonic only lead one console at launch- the Sega Dreamcast. Sonic Adventure was also a unique title in the Sonic series since it wa the first […]

Namco Triumphs Valiantly Over Sega Dreamcast Launch Competition with Soul Calibur- Today in History- September 9th, 1999

When the original Soul Edge (arcade)/Soul Blade (PSOne) game hit it was so unique and different over the competition. Here was this 3D one on one fighting game with phenomenal graphics and characters fighting with weapons. The announcer was equipped with more than a couple of words in his vocabulary also. Now, take all of […]
