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 […]

Volgarr the Viking Xbox One Crazy Vikings Studios 2

New Game: Volgarr the Viking on Xbox One, PC, Mac Reminds Us of When Games Were Tough

It is no secret that Microsoft is kind of taking a beating with the Xbox One versus the Playstation 4 right now.  While there are many possible reasons for this, I like to think it is a case of lack of retro content available for the platform- Sony has their whole PSOne Classics catalog of […]

Bandit Gaming: Another Unofficial Resident Evil 2 Remake in the Works Using the Unreal Engine

I remember the fervor that built up around the Resident Evil series, not once but twice, over the years. The first time was the release of the original game on Playstation- magazines such as Gamefan and Electronic Gaming Monthly were covering it like crazy showing pics from early builds and following the story. Gamers reciprocated […]

New Game: Powerglove for Commodore 64 Released

Run and gun games really became a staple in gaming with the Nintendo Entertainment System and a little title named Contra. The Commodore 64 was not exactly overflowing with them but there were a few arcade ports (even a Contra game or two amongst them) that featured this style of gameplay. Powerglove, a new homebrew […]
