Super Nintendo Rayman Game Unearthed

Rayman was the first platform star of the 32-Bit era.  Ubi Soft was quick to launch this little guy unto the world of Atari Jaguar, then later Playstation and Saturn.  Sadly Rayman never made it to the 3DO console- though it would have surely been quite cool if it did.  Rayman was the first 2D […]

In the early years of the Eighties decade, the only thing that could take my attention away from the multitudes of arcades in my hometown of Columbia, South Carolina was playing video games at home.  Well, in May of 1982 the next stage of my video game obsession came to be: my parents bought me […]

Amstrad CPC Arcade Game Conersions

Any serious gamer would no doubt remember games like Pacman, Space Invaders, Galaga, Asteroids and Frogger. Created around the 1970s to early 1980s, these video games are still highly revered to this very day, the so called ‘Golden Age’ of the arcade video games industry. Ah, it was a time when video game arcade machines would be […]

What if – Atari Released Their 3DO Console?

It is no secret that when Atari released their Jaguar console that they were going up against the 3DO.  In some markets there were other options such as the CD32 (Amiga based) console and other lesser known platforms.  This was all prior to the launch of the Playstsation (which would kick everyone in the butt) […]

Konami Mining Classic Titles for Real Money Gaming

As far as SHMUPs go, few are considered true classics of the genre as much as Centipede. Since it arrived in arcades in 1980, it’s been ported, cloned, and remade numerous times. The game even played a special role in the Adam Sandler snoozefest Pixels.

Drunken Pooper: Strange Tales from Classic Game Development

My first Atari 2600 game was far from original – although its origin was. A certain amateur developer entered a coding contest sponsored by the now defunct video game import company Lik Sang. His chosen genre for his entry: “fecal shooter”. He chose to reenact a situation in which his roommate placed a stinky, fully […]

Revenge of the License: Boxing Games and Karma

Humanity has a few personality quirks we’ve spent the last several thousand years failing to breed out of existence. Chief among these appears to be our desire to watch one person pulverize another in combat. No less a philosopher than the Cyberdyne Systems Model 101 remarked of the human race, “It’s in your nature to […]

Brain Dead 13 FMV Game Gives You Unlimited Lives Because You Will Need Them – Today in History – January 31st, 1996

A little disclaimer in the manual for Brain Dead 13 set the pace for the rest of the game.  You are given unlimited lives and will probably need all of them to survive Brain Dead 13.  For those that do not know about Brain Dead 13, it is a Full Motion Video Game (FMV) in […]

UPP! Homebrew Released for Atari 2600

To say that the Atari 2600 is dead is only half right.  If you are talking about going to Walmart and buying games then yes, it is dead.  If you are a little more open minded and know where to look (around here at RGM is a good start) then you can find a plethora […]
