Icewind Dale Takes R.A. Salvatore’s Story in New Direction – Today in Retro Gaming – June 29th 2000

How do you port a successful book series that is based in the rich world of a pen and paper game to computer?  Simple.  You don’t.  That is what Black Isle Studios did with Icewind Dale when they ported it to PC’s in 2000 for Interplay.  The game is based in another century from the […]

Nintendo Rewrites History When Releasing Crystalis for Game Boy Color – Today in Retro Gaming – June 26th, 2000

Crystalis by SNK (the Neo Geo guys) is considered quite a cult classic by retro gaming fans.  Released during a time when role playing games that did not have “Zelda” or “Final Fantasy” in the title simply did not sell well, SNK still pushed forward.  The Nintendo Entertainment System went kind of dark with the […]

Resident Evil – Code: Veronica Drops Playstation for Dreamcast – Today in History – February 29th, 2000

Resident Evil – Code: Veronica was a seminal title for the Sega Dreamcast.  Why? When Sony launched the Playstation console in mid 90’s it was quite a surprise move.  Sure, there were rumblings in the gaming magazines of the time and around the playgrounds across the world.  It still came as a surprise though, no […]

Renegade Racers Defies Water Physics on Playstation – Today in History – March 9th, 2000

It is not all that unique in gaming to have real world physics completely, and utterly, ignored in favor of making a fun game possible.  This happens in virtually every video game that is not a simulation of some sort.  Physics aren’t all that fun in most games since they keep the player stuck in […]

Polaris SnoCross Shreds Onto the Nintendo 64: Today in History- December 27th, 2000

Before Vicarious Visions were working their magic for Sega and the whole 2k sports line on the Sega Dreamcast system, they were creating games like Polaris SnoCross for companies like Vatical Entertainment for the Nintendo 64.  While not a graphically impressive game, it does show off Vicarious Visions capabilities with early 3D (which they tweaked […]

New Game: The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask is Coming to the Nintendo 3DS This Spring

Ever since Nintendo has been in the portable gaming market there has been a sizable demand for the popular titles from their current consoles to appear in “bite size” form.  As time went on and Nintendo’s back library grew, demand slowly grew for older titles to be released on newer consoles and whatever the current […]

New Game: Icewind Dale Coming to Android, iOS, Mac and PC with +1 Enhancements

Previously we saw Baldur’s Gate, with enhancements, hit Android and now the same developers (Beamdog) are working on bringing Icewind Dale to Google’s mobile platform, among others. Wizards of the Coast have announced this version will be hitting Android, iOS, Mac and PC (presumably through Steam). This is the first time that the popular role […]

Dig Dug 3, er, Mr. Driller Drills The PSOne: Today in History- May 10th, 2000

That title is not a typo, maybe funny in a “unique” way but not a typo as Mr. Driller was originally intended to be Dig Dug 3. Things got changed around internally at Namco and Dig Dug 3 became Mr. Driller when the levels were changed and the game was all around made “simpler” and […]

Pokemon Trading Card Game Brings Trading Card Game to Game Boy: Today in History- April 10th, 2000

To say Pokemon has been a cash cow for Nintendo is quite an understatement. From the original cards to the cartoon/movies and games based on this franchise, Nintendo definitely made the right choice in bringing it over to North America. One game in particular would seem to go against the spirit of the card game […]
