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: The Abyss – Incident At Europa

“The Abyss” is the one film from James Cameron’s past everybody forgets about until someone else brings it up, and to be honest I like it fine that way. It’s one of my favorites, but at the same time I can’t say I watch it more than once every few years, mainly because the special […]

Bungie Shows the Macintosh Can Rock 1st Person Shooters with Marathon – Today in History – December 21st, 1994

It is no small secret that First Person Shooter (FPS) games are still raging on within the gaming world, whether on console or computers or mobile, they are still going strong.  With the advent of the newer consoles, we saw even more FPS games racking up sales and continuing franchises.  20 years ago, Bungie (the […]

Aliens, Buxom Women, Fisticuffs, Round One with Criticom on Playstation: Today in History- November 29th, 1996

Today in retro gaming, we acknowledge the release of Kronos Digital’s not-so-gripping fighting game of not-so-epic proportions with an ad more exciting than the game it advertises.  How does this sort of thing keep happening?

New Game: Battle Tank 3D Released for the ZX Spectrum

The ZX Spectrum has been getting quite a bit of love from homebrew developers lately.  Take Battle Tank 3D for example which is basically a 3rd person take on the classic Battlezone game.  Gabriele Amore has taken the daunting task of making something original on the Spectrum (think just how hard that is) and came […]

Thunder Force II Brings Arcade Quality Scrolling Shooter Action to Sega Genesis – Today in History – August 14, 1989

Scrolling shooter fans were well served with the Sega Genesis and right out of the gate they got Thunder Force II from Sega/Technosoft. While not an arcade shooter, Thunder Force II would have been at home in the arcades if it was released there. Interestingly, Sega really covered several genres with the launch of the […]

Everyone Was Alien Blasting in Alien Front Online- Today in History – August 9th, 2001

Well maybe not everyone but there were quite a few gamers that owned the just discontinued Sega Dreamcast and purchased Alien Front Online. This game was probably one of the worst launches in history as far as picking up any momentum from the publisher. The Dreamcast has been discontinued about half a year prior to […]

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 […]

Aliens vs. Predator Takes Capcom into Deep Space: Today in History- May 20th, 1994

Wow, has it really been 20 years since Capcom took on the Aliens vs Predator license? This is one of the better brawlers from this era and very much worthy of being played if you can track down a cabinet, yeah, this one never came home (no, the SNES game by Activision doesn’t count). This […]
