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

Street_Fighter_Alpha_3_III_Capcom_Arcade

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, […]

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

Magical_Quest_Circus_Mystery_Mickey_Mouse_Sega_Genesis

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 […]

Capcom’s Monster Hunter on Life Support

Monster_Hunter_Logo_capcom

I’ve started noticing a trend in certain video games recently. Developers appear to believe that if you release a multiplayer online game they will maintain an extremely high player base if they release tiny bits of DLC throughout the following months of release. While this can be a noble goal in the case of certain […]

The Addiction of Monster Hunter

Monster_Hunter_Logo_capcom

Monster Hunter, described as a game where you kill beasts that rival mountains and make clothing out of them, is great. It’s loosely based on an old Norse belief from the Berserks, as they believed that wearing the pelt of a bear granted them the power of Odin. Monster Hunter also hints toward a cannibalistic […]

Super Joe is the Lone Arcade Commando – Today in History – May 8th, 1985

Commando_arcade_shooter_Capcom_may_8th_1985

Capcom used to make these awesome arcade games.  From Final Fight to Street Fighter II, Capcom were kings of the arcade for years.  One early title that holds a lot of nostalgia power with us old timers is Commando.  While war is not something to make light of, it is usually the best and most […]

Mega Man Soccer Replaces Blasters with Soccer Balls on Super Nintendo – Today in History – April 2nd, 1994

MMSoccerBox

Nintendo has shown over the years that there is quite a bit of money to be made in iconic characters doing uncharacteristic things.  Mario started as a girder climber, then a running and jumping plumber.  Eventually Mario saw a short career in pharmaceuticals and even racing.  Capcom was paying attention around 1993 when Mega Man […]

Mega Man Battle Network Lets You Play a Robot in a Computer – Today in History – March 21st, 2001

Mega-Man-Battle-Network1

Okay, here is a premise that is somewhat unique in description if not in execution.  You are tasked as playing Mega Man in a tactical role playing game.  Fine so far, we have seen this many times in gaming.  Here you are playing Mega Man inside of a computer though.  Matrix maybe?  Not really.  This […]

Mega Man Redux Visually Improves Upon Original NES Classic

Mega_Man_Redux_Nintendo_NES_Capcom

Capcom did a remake of the first Mega Man on Playstation Portable back in 2006.  Fans have decided to do a remake of their own.  Graphically improving the original Mega Man on the Nintendo Entertainment System, this hack almost breathes new life into a classic.  Similar to what was done for Super Mario Bros in […]
