Revenge of the License: Alien Trilogy

One of iD Software’s initial ideas for Doom was to make a first-person shooter set in the world of James Cameron’s ‘Aliens’. When a licensing deal couldn’t be worked out between iD and 20th Century Fox, Carmack and Romero’s team fell back on a more generic ‘space marine kills everything’ setting, and an FPS classic […]

Revenge of the License: 2600 Trilogy of Terror!

Whassup all my retro gamer bro-dawgs? It’s October, in case you hadn’t noticed, and round these parts, October mandates that gamers start rounding up the carts and discs with a decidedly creepier theme to them. We at Retro Gaming Magazine are happy to admit we’re not immune to this infectious desire to splatter some blocky […]

Prototype: New Version of Alien vs Predator Found for Atari Lynx

This is interesting news to say the least.  The Atari Lynx was Atari’s, only, hand held device to be released and, depending on who you ask, it was a horrible failure for the company.  We did see some great games for it though, games that, honestly, should have done better and could have had Atari […]

Forgotten Classic – Alien Brigade (7800)

Yes, we know, technically the entirety of the Atari 7800 library could be considered a forgotten classic thanks to the Nintendo Entertainment System juggernaut steamrolling Atari like a patch of wet asphalt in the US.  But while Atari’s systems are known for a voluminous amount of shovel-ware, digging through the crap will occasionally yield a […]

Today in History: October 27th, 1992 – BlaZeon: The Bio-Cyborg Challenge Transforms SNES Shooters

At a time when scrolling shooters had about three frames of animation for the player ship (resting, moving up and moving down) Atlus saw fit to release a game that featured a tranforming robot/ship that had many more frames of animation.
