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 […]

Populous- Play God, Raise Volcanoes and Destroy Evil – Today in Retro Gaming – June 5th, 1989

Sure, today playing god in a game is nothing new.  We have plenty of options if this is your one and only goal in your electronic entertainment.  Back in the late 80’s and early 90’s though, options were much more limited.  Populous took the idea of a sandbox game, mixed in plenty of “god like” […]

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 […]

WCW Backstage Assault Makes Even Hardcore Fans Board on the Nintendo 64 – Today in History – December 12th, 2000

It is no secret that World Championship Wrestling (WCW) had their share of problems.  Lack of a deep locker room was not one of them.  The biggest problem that WCW faced was themselves.  They had no clear vision as to what they wanted to present fans.  The revolving door in the executive lounge was not […]

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 […]

Mutant League Football, Sega Genesis Classic, Reborn as Mutant Football League for Playstation 4, Modern Platforms

This is a unique news item, one that is pretty interesting for me as I figured the original was to be the start of something pretty cool.  Sadly, we only ever saw one Mutant League Football game and one hockey title in this style before the series was pretty much dropped by Electronic Arts.  During […]

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 […]
