Blood Omen Legacy of Kain

Blood Omen – Legacy of Kain Sucks Blood on Playstation – Today in Retro Gaming – November 1st, 1996

Okay, this is one of those games that I followed in the pages of Gamefan Magazine every month.  Blood Omen – Legacy of Kain was THE game for fans of the “dark” side of gaming.  Sure, Gamefan overplayed the game quite a bit with each multi-page spread they did for it.  Still, this was one […]

Nintendo 64 Disk Disk Drive Development Kit Including Disk Surfaces

The Nintendo 64 Disk Drive, aka N64 DD, was never released in North America but did see a very limited release in Japan.  The limited release in Japan was not because Nintendo didn’t make enough- apparently they made 100,000 units available but only sold 15,000 of them over a 14 month period.  Along with the […]

Remove Blur and Fog in Nintendo 64 Games

The Nintendo 64 is one of those consoles that was marred by the little details.  Particularly the fact that those little details were either blurred out or hidden behind fog.  Fans of the competition pointed at the blurriness and fog in many of the Nintendo 64 games.  Some it just got sad.  Some were still […]
