Revenge of the License: UN Squadron

After dealing with some seriously awful games the last couple of weeks, I figured I was owed a break and put in a request to write about something that wouldn’t make me consider reenacting awful Cards Against Humanity combos in real life. Suitably mollified by my grovelling, my editor overheard my pleas and granted my […]

Who Built the Better 16-Bit Mickey Mouse Trap? 

For the sake of fairness here I am going to keep this comparison discussion squarely in the 16-Bit era of gaming.  That means we won’t be comparing the Game Boy, Game Gear, Nintendo Entertainment System or Sega Master System versions of the Mickey Mouse games.  Sure, there were plenty on those platforms, most by Capcom […]

Five Great Side Scrolling Action Games that are Not Mario

It is no secret to retrogaming fans that Nintendo single handedly revived the North American video game market with their Nintendo Entertainment System and a little game called Super Mario Bros.  Nintendo was not new to the North American gaming world, they had several titles out on earlier consoles when they were, what would later […]

Street Fighter 2: The World Warrior Dragon Punches the Super Nintendo: Today in History – February 6th, 1991

Street Fighter 2: The World Warrior by Capcom, the game that arguably put the Super Nintendo on the map for many gamers (I lived through it and remember the scene vividly).  While the SNES was not exactly hurting without SF2, it was like night and day when SF2 was announced to be coming to the […]

Bandit Gaming: Street Fighter II Champion Edition, Hyper Fighting, for Virtual Boy Spotted in Wild

That is a convoluted title, for sure, but it is true.  A port of Street Fighter II Champion Edition, called Hyper Fighting, for the Nintendo Virtual Boy has been found in the wild.  We are talking complete here folks- box, manual and cartridge, for the Virtual Boy.  Video and pics after the jump. Like this:Like […]

New Game: Papi Commando Coming to PC and Sega Genesis and Mega Drive

Show of hands, who remembers the classic Capcom arcade title, Commando?  Show of hands again, who is willing to admit they saw the movie of the same name starring a young Alyssa Milano and Arnold Schwarzenegger?  Okay, forget the second question, it has zero relevance to Papi Commando.  Fans of the arcade game, Commando, will […]

Magical Quest Starring Mickey Mouse retro retrogaming game videogame SNES Super Nintendo (2)

Disney Magic Hits the Super Nintendo with The Magical Quest starring Mickey Mouse – Today in History – December 23rd, 1992

Ah the tale of Mickey Mouse versus big bad Pete is a story that is pretty timeless, one that has gone on for decades (longer than Mario and Bowser by a long shot).  Disney are a protective lot, not just anyone with the dough can make a Disney game, or at least it used to […]

Street Fighter V Ryy Capcom Fighting Arcade Playstation 4 PC PS4

Is Street Fighter V Set to Become a Game Changer Like Street Fighter II?

Way back in the early 1990’s the Sega Genesis was fighting a ferocious war with Nintendo and their SNES console.  Things were somewhat of an uphill battle for Nintendo when they finally launched their 16-Bit console.  Not only were they coming from the underdog position (not easy for them considering their dominance in the previous […]

King of Fighters 2012 Now Free Celebrating the 20th Anniversary of Franchise

SNK has proven quite prolific in keeping their fans happy, either through re-releases of old franchise titles, taking established series in new directions or re-releasing formerly paid games as free.  SNK are not completely stupid in releasing King of Fighters 2012 as a free game.  There are ads interspersed in the game but the great […]

Bionic Commando Blasts onto the Nintendo Entertainment System: Today in History- December 1st, 1988

Capcom are not scared to try and reboot games from their past unless it is Legendary Wings or Section Z of course.  Bionic Commando was one of those titles that kids were discussing on the playground at school during recess, even if they didn’t have a Nintendo Entertainment System at home- they knew someone that […]
