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’ […]

Majestic – What the Hell Happened?

Today augmented reality games are all the rage and only getting more popular.  We have Pokemon GO, we have virtual reality and we are seeing more immersive gaming experiences arise.  This is nothing new though, even more immersive than simply looking at your phone screen was done over a decade ago.  Electronic Arts attempted taking […]

Electronic Arts Gives Gamers Road Rash II on Sega Genesis – Today in Retro Gaming – July 22nd, 1993

If you think about Electronic Arts (EA) for a moment, forget their current, horrendous, Digital Rights Management (DRM) antics and focus on their past they were quite good.  EA were great at picking the right games to publish and developing some cool games of their own.  I mean, come on, look at their Sega Genesis […]

Tetris Blitz 2016 Edition Released onto Android

Okay who doesn’t know about Tetris by now?  For the few that do not know, Tetris is a falling block game from the 80’s.  Various companies from Nintendo to, now, EA have kept the brand alive and well on many different platforms.  Android and iPhone are just a couple of the newer platforms.  Recently, Electronic […]

Today in Retro Gaming: OverBlood (PS1)

Waking up from cryosleep is never fun, but it’s even less enjoyable when you’re dealing with amnesia and hypothermia. This is the situation our protagonist finds himself facing at the beginning of OverBlood, a 3-D Sci-Fi Adventure (just like it says on the package). You know you’re in for a rough stretch when the first […]

9 Times Developers Screwed the Console Manufacturers

It has not always been all happy and go lucky days in video games.  No, back in the day we had some real controversial things going on, mostly behind the scenes but quite a few made it to the fanbase (such as the Tengen situation).  There are poop monsters shooting a questionable brown projectile at […]

Target Tuesday: Need For Speed III – Hot Pursuit

Neither Retro Gaming Magazine nor any member of our staff is associated with the Target chain of retail outlets. Michael just thinks this particular series of ads from the 90’s featuring “Respected coach and video gameologist Tom ‘The Thumb’ Blake” which ran in GamePro magazine was amusing. Thus we’re going to feature one every Tuesday […]

Revenge of the License: Indianapolis 500: The Simulation

Every year on Memorial Day weekend, hundreds of thousands of racing fanatics descend upon the city of Indianapolis to watch thirty-three people in aerodynamically-unsafe vehicles accelerate to speeds in excess of two hundred miles per hour while making nearly continuous left turns around an oval-shaped track. I’m told this is far more exciting than this […]

Prototype: C64′ s Missing Populous Found

After recently receiving a disk containing the games code by original programmers Frank Hugenroth and André Hugenroth, http://www.gamesthatwerent.com/gtw64/ has recently updated their site informing readers, the missing Populous game that had planned to be released onto the C64 has been found. 

Revenge of the License – Space Hulk: Vengeance of the Blood Angels

It’s October! Tradition dictates in October that we go looking for games which go well with a Halloween theme, because what about the first half of this sentence was unclear?  We got an early start with last week’s column, and we’re rolling right along. Today we’re looking at a game with a similar first-person shooter […]
