Top 3 “Desert Island” Games (Top 3 Tuesday)

I have to say, when I saw MichaelB’s Top 3 Tuesday topic this week, I was confused. This appeared to be the one that broke him. I mean, really, top three games featuring desert islands? As if that wasn’t strange, the video’s thumbnail features Mike Tyson’s Punch-Out!! which, as far as I can tell, occurs somewhere […]

Sega Genesis Receives Zelda Clone Crusader of Centy – Today in Retro Gaming – June 16th, 1994

Nintendo had the Legend of Zelda series since the 8-Bit days.  Sega kind of was lacking in the action game with light role playing elements category.  Sure, Sega had the Phantasy Star series but that was more of an answer to Square’s Final Fantasy series than Zelda.  It took until June 1994 before there was […]

Ogre Battle 64 the Hidden Stratagem of the N64

Ogre Battle 64: Person of the Lordly Caliber was one of the few strategy games that were present in the Nintendo 64’s relatively small library. Ogre Battle 64 was released in October of the year 2000 and was actually one of the last 50 games released in the console. On the surface the OB64 did […]

Revenge of the License: Friday the 13th

Seven months ago, I took at look at Domark’s Friday the 13th for the Commodore 64 as the second installment of this column. Back then, I didn’t realize how much fun I was going to have with this series and I wasn’t sure if it would continue much past two or three installments. Reaction, however, […]

Coerce Demons to Aid Your Efforts in Persona 2: Eternal Punishment on Sony Playstation – Today in History – March 11th 2000

The Persona series was a huge gamble for Atlus, at least in North America.  We did not get any of the Shin Megami Tensei games (Persona in Japan) for the Nintendo or Super Nintendo or Game Boy, etc.  The first game in this extremely long running series to hit North American shores was Revelations: Persona.  […]

Retro Gaming Halloween Style, Part Six: Hellnight

Yeah, yeah, everybody makes their lists about scary, creepy, or flat-out weird games to play each October and we’re not about to buck the trend. But we’re going to assume you’re a retro gamer who’s read enough to know the big franchises everybody else writes about. Because if you’ve picked up a controller in the […]

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. BlaZeon also gave the player slight control over some enemy ships.

Today in Gaming History: October 13th, 1999 – Thousand Arms Charms North American Gamers on PSOne

Thousand Arms is a role playing/dating sim that charmed its way onto the North American shores on October 13th, 1999. Thousand Arms is recognized as the first legitimate dating sim to break into the mainstream gaming market in North America. Mixing dating simulation with role playing trappings was probably the best combination of both worlds.
