Ghosts n Goblins

Ghosts n Goblins Amstrad GX4000 Port Debuts, Work in Progress

Back in the late 1980’s there was this thing gamers visited on a regular basis.  Arcades.  In those mystical buildings, sometimes just rooms inside, were collections of some of the best games you could want to play at the time.  One such game was Ghosts n Goblins by Capcom.  This was a nail bitingly intense […]

Clock Tower Lops Limbs Off Playstation Owners – Today in Retro Gaming – October 1st, 1997

When you think of horror games on the original Playstation console, what do you think of?  Maybe you only know Capcom’s Resident Evil in this genre.  Maybe you go a little less mainstream and remember something called Clock Tower by our friends at ASCII Entertainment?  While this is technically the second Clock Tower game, the […]

Capcom Gives Fans Resident Evil Director’s Cut – Today in Retro Gaming – September 30th, 1997

When Capcom released the original Resident Evil onto the Sony Playstation console it was unique.  Never before had gamers been presented with a 3D horror game like this before.  No, I am not counting Alone in the Dark here as that was more of a 3D adventure game with monsters.  Resident Evil was a 3D […]

The Fifteen Most Difficult Genesis Games (That Are Not Battletoads)

Last year we held a combination shouting match/kumite among the staff to determine the fifteen hardest NES games, discounting Battletoads. In the end, two things happened. First, you all made it the most-read, most-shared column we’ve ever published–you rock! Second, the local hospital told us if we pulled a stunt like that again, they would ‘accidentally’ […]

Humble Capcom Playstation Bundle Nearing End Date

If you are reading this then you are probably a fan of retro games.  Just taking a stab in the dark there.  Well, we just found out that Capcom, one of the better retro supporting companies out there, has this package with Humble Bundle full of Playstation 3 and Playstation 4 games.  You better hurry […]

Street Fighter Alpha 3 Flawlessly Ends Trilogy of Arcade Games – Today in Retro Gaming – June 29th, 1998

It is not like Capcom to simply release a fighting game and not milk it somehow.  We saw this with Street Fighter II which has many updates, all of which were additional full purchases, on Super Nintendo and Sega Genesis. Maybe they realized fans were not going to go for that forever by the time […]

Capcom Revamps Franchise in Street Fighter Alpha in Arcades – Today in Retro Gaming – June 27th, 1995

What do you do when you are nearly at the end of being able to milk a franchise release?  You re-invent that franchise with better graphics, a new storyline and leave the core elements alone.  That is exactly what Capcom did with Street Fighter Alpha.  Sadly, this gave Capcom yet another franchise, within a franchise, […]

Mighty No 9 Coming to NVIDIA Shield, Already Delayed

Okay, sure, Mighty No 9 is getting beat like a red headed stepchild by the gaming community, it is making the jump to another platform.  For those that don’t know about Mighty No 9, it is the first game by Kenji Inafune after leaving Capcom.  The sites that are saying there is a “strong” Mega […]

Great Circus Mystery Gets Magical on Sega Genesis – Today in Retro Gaming – June 2nd 1994

When you think back to the 16-Bit era, what is it that stands out to you the most?  Is it the plethora of original titles that fans got?  Is it the many quality licensed games that were released?  For me, on days like this, I have to go with the second one.  The Great Circus […]
