Sega Rally Championship Slings Mud on Sega Saturn – Today in History – December 28th, 1995

Sega Rally threw the gauntlet of mud down and for the most part, Sony and Nintendo had nothing to counter with on this level.

Atari Karts on Atari Jaguar Turns 20 – Today in History – December 22nd, 1995

Atari was hurting for new, original, titles for their Jaguar console when it launched.  With a name like Atari, you kind of have to do something original and interesting.  Sadly, the best they did was more of the same, although Tempest 2000 was pretty cool (it wasn’t an exclusive though).  We never got updates to […]

Streets of Rage 2 Continues the Beat Down – Today in History – December 20th, 1992

There is no denying that the Streets of Rage series is one of Sega’s most popular outside of Sonic.  It is a tragedy of gaming that they have not kept SoR updated on newer platforms like they have Sonic.  Streets of Rage 2 continued the beating up of multiple enemies that started with the original […]

Donald Steps His Game Up in Quackshot – Today in History – December 19th, 1991

Okay, Nintendo was riding high on the success of Ducktales thanks to Capcom.  Great.  What did Sega have for their fans though?  Remember, this is a good year before Sonic would make his debut and save Sega.  Sega was savvy at licensing vital properties and their eye hit pay dirt with Disney.  Much like other […]

Mickey Mouse Leads Charge on Sega Genesis in World of Illusion – Today in History – December 17th, 1992

In gaming there is a loose theory that says the third game in a series is going to usually be crap.  That is why it is a loose theory, it doesn’t really apply unless your name is SNK.  Sega had slowly been nicking away at the armor of Nintendo for years and with World of […]

Commander Keen Takes a Negative from Nintendo to Create a Classic on Computers – Today in History – December 14th, 1990

What do you do when you have spent a lot of money and time creating a pretty damn good rendition of Super Mario Bros 3 but for PC?  First, you shop it out to Nintendo and when they say no, you take your superior engine and rework the graphics and levels to make something new […]

Polaris SnoCross Shreds Onto the Nintendo 64: Today in History- December 27th, 2000

Before Vicarious Visions were working their magic for Sega and the whole 2k sports line on the Sega Dreamcast system, they were creating games like Polaris SnoCross for companies like Vatical Entertainment for the Nintendo 64.  While not a graphically impressive game, it does show off Vicarious Visions capabilities with early 3D (which they tweaked […]

Star Wars: Shadows of the Empire Strikes on the Nintendo 64: Today in History- December 3rd, 1996

There was a fair amount of buzz for Star Wars: Shadows of the Empire around the time it was announced, and leading up to release for, the Nintendo 64.  For one, this was one of the first third party titles to hit and gamers were eager to see what 3rd parties could do on the […]

Today in History: December 8th, 2004- Viewtiful Joe 2 Snubs Xbox and Lands on Sony Hardware

Back in the day, Microsoft had it kind of tough getting original titles on their Xbox system. Some companies showed support while hold certain games back for whatever reason. Viewtiful Joe 2 is one of those titles that snubbed the console from Seattle. Previously released on the Nintendo Gamecube, Viewtiful Joe 2 made his debut […]
