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.

New Game: X-Force Reminds Gamers that the Commodore 64 Can Rock Scrolling Shooters

Side scrolling shooters.  A genre that used to rule the roost in gaming, no matter what platform you gamed on, there was probably more than a handful of side scrolling shooters (unless it was a 3DO, CD-i or Playdia that is).  From the likes of Nemesis II on the Game Boy to Thunder Force III […]
