Gaming and music is one of the greatest pairings in life just like peanut butter and chocolate, sex and candy, and Hall and Oates. Music can be used to amplify the joy of a fun game or make playing a game with terrible sound tolerable. Fortunately, Weird Al can do both.

Capcom has painted itself into a corner with its mobile releases. Thanks to some shoddy porting work on the Mega Man series recently, most gamers are wary of Capcom games on Android and iPhone. For good reason, too; those ports are quite bad. So bad, in fact, that we didn’t even review them here on […]
Retro gaming fans must be understanding. Sometimes companies get things right when porting older games to newer platforms. Sometimes they royally screw up the conversion. Sadly, this is the case with Capcom’s most recent attempts at porting a classic franchise to mobile. Recently Capcom re-released Mega Man one through six on Android and well, to […]
Okay, there is a lot of fanfare about Battle Princess Madelyn, and for good reason. Many compare it to Ghouls ‘n Ghosts by Capcom, and that is also for good reason. This game is full of action and deadly creatures waiting to end your game early. Oh yeah, this one may be heading to that […]
Earth Defense Force Invigorates the Super Nintendo Shoot-’em-up Genre – Today in Retro Gaming – January 1, 1992
Although the Sega Genesis is well known for its arcade conversions and shoot-’em-ups, the Super Nintendo did get a fair share of its own, and on this day in 1992, SNES gamers were blessed with Earth Defense Force (also known by Super Earth Defense Force).

While an official licensed Mario Bros. game did make it to the ZX Spectrum in 1987, it is generally considered to be a poor port of the 1983 arcade platformer by Nintendo. With that in mind, Christian M. Gonzalez has been working away for many months on his own version of the game and has […]
The Sega Genesis was always the “second run” console when it came to ports from other platforms. This happened nearly all the time throughout the life of Sega’s 16-Bit console. One time in the history of the console, Sega did come out ahead concerning a port. That was Mortal Kombat and only because Nintendo heavily […]
A frog jumping on logs avoiding obstacles to get to his home doesn’t sound like an interesting game but Frogger is an arcade classic. I’m surprised Frogger was never released commercially on the Amstrad CPC. It was a massive success back in the day, at the video arcades. Frogger was launched onto the video game […]
We love a gaming classic. Yes, Metal Gear Solid V is a visually stunning tactical feast and Diablo III is a soul lifting RPG, but hold these up to old school offerings like Super Mario, Sonic and even Space Invaders and the latter group wins every time.
Cobra Command Brings Animated Arcade Rails Shooter Home – Today in Retro Gaming – October 15th, 1992
Full Motion Video is not all actors in, somewhat, scant clothing running from blood suckers ala Night Trap. Or getting called names by your boss like in Sewer Shark. No, sometimes Full Motion Video games are just cartoons similar to what we enjoyed on Saturday mornings in the 80’s (man, who misses THOSE days?). Cobra […]
