Revenge of the License: The Thing

The final installment of this column prior to Halloween saved the best for last. There’s no denying John Carpenter’s “The Thing” from 1982 is a master class in claustrophobic paranoia. Forget the 2011 prequel and turn your attention to the 2002 sequel, developed with Carpenter’s blessing as a continuation/expansion of the events from the movie on its […]

Sony Asks Are You Red E with Playstation Console – Today in Retro Gaming – September 9th, 1995

Sony was kind of new to the console market when they released their original Playstation console.  I say “kind of” because the closest they came to launching a console prior was the Super Nintendo CD-ROM add-on/combo unit they were working on with Nintendo.  Kind of new to consoles because Sony did work with both Nintendo […]

Nintendo Ends Fun for 600+ Indie Fan Games and Fans

Nintendo has been on a rampage against their fans lately.  Awhile back they took on the Youtube crowd by blocking ad revenue sharing on Nintendo owned games being played.  Then more recently they took down Project AM2R and the Pokemon game and the Nintendo Power issues on Archive.org just to name a few things.  Now, […]

Batman Forever Proves Digitized Graphics Aren’t Always Best – Today in Retro Gaming – September 4th 1995

With the popularity of titles like Mortal Kombat it was only a matter of time before we got a fully digitized brawler.  Acclaim was fine with doing just that for fans of the movie Batman Forever (there were some, right?) on the Sega Genesis and the Game Gear- both of which were released today in […]

Did Sega Turn Down the Nintendo 64 Hardware?

It is almost the point that gamers can point to that was the fall of Sega.  Releasing a ton of add-ons for the Sega Genesis seems to be the point that most game companies point at when asked why they didn’t support the Sega Saturn.  That Sega was all over the place.  They were actually.  […]

Revenge of the License: Board Games

The most obvious shortcut you can take as a game developer is to make a game out of something that is already a game. Chess programs have been used to sell people on the idea of home computers since the 1970s, every version of Windows has shipped with Solitaire built right in, and casino games […]

Interview with Youki- Developer of Ghost n Zombies for Colecovision

This is an interview I conducted a while back (about six years ago) for another site.  That site was UnNamed Gaming, now closed down (available on Waybackmachine).  I am reposting this here so that fans of the Colecovision can see what homebrew developers have created.  I will be following up with Collectorvision on possibly seeing […]

Retro Freak, 11 Plus Platform Supporting Console, Released

We have been covering the Retro Freak console for a bit now and can finally say, it is available at Play Asia (and probably other stores).  The price is a little steeper than first expected but it is not like what we saw with the RETRO VGS console.  The Retro Freak’s price is very much […]

RETRO VGS Sees Immense Social Media Backlash as Crowdfunding Project Begins

The RETRO VGS is to be a new gaming console that hearkens back to the early days of gaming, before on-line capabilities, before patches and in app purchases seeped in.  Many of us remember this as the days of the 32-Bit era (Sega Saturn, PSOne, Nintendo 64) and earlier- more fondly at about the Super […]

Pac-Man 2 Homebrew Released for Atari 2600

Before you get to thinking this is a port of Pac-Man 2: The New Adventures from the 16-bit platforms, calm down.  It is not.  This is a hack of the original Pac-Man with new levels and improved all around over what Atari forced on us back in the day.  Pac-Man 2 is hard, you are […]
