Splatterhouse 3 Asks You to Save Jennifer Again on Sega Genesis – Today in History – March 18th, 1993

In the history of video games there are not that many third party franchises that have not seen at least on release on a Nintendo console.  One such franchise that holds that honor is Splatterhouse.  No, I am not counting the “super deformed” game that was released in Japan.  Namco originally started Splatterhouse in arcades, […]

Five Nintendo NES Titles for Your Halloween Fun

With Halloween upon us, it is only fitting to offer up some games that are good ways to get in the spooky mood of the season.  While stores are already putting out Christmas decorations, apparently skipping the whole Thanksgiving thing next month, we here at Retro Gaming Magazine are still focusing on the holiday that […]

Voorhees Stomp: The 8-Bit Video Hit

Happy Halloween, retro maniacs! You’ve likely not heard of Videogram before. That’s OK, we hadn’t either. But they’re making one hell of a splash in both the gaming and music scenes thanks to the video for their single “Voorhees Stomp,” which incorporates graphics from the notorious Friday the 13th NES game coded by Rare and […]

The Fifteen Most Difficult NES Games (That Are Not Battletoads)

As the tropes go, there’s hard, and then there’s Nintendo Hard. The distinction is easily understood by anyone who grew up in the 8-bit era, but the tradition continues to this day with games like Super Meat Boy and I Wanna Be The Guy.

Revenge of the License: Friday the 13th

Seven months ago, I took at look at Domark’s Friday the 13th for the Commodore 64 as the second installment of this column. Back then, I didn’t realize how much fun I was going to have with this series and I wasn’t sure if it would continue much past two or three installments. Reaction, however, […]

Bandit Gaming- Freddy vs Jason Released on Cartridge for the Nintendo NES

Two iconic horror movie franchise players finally crossed paths in Freddy vs Jason and for some, it was simply awesome.  For others, it was meh.  Either way, it was an iconic release that showed the fans probably shouldn’t get their way all that often.  Pac-N-Sac Dave, a name you may recognize from various articles here, […]

Screenshots: Legends, that Horror Based Action Game on Atari 2600, Gets Fleshed Out

We have covered this title before and will continue to cover it in the future as it nears completion. What Legends is, at its core, is an action platform game that features the likenesses of several horor movie icons. This is within the limitations set by the hardware, the Atari 2600 is not known for […]

Revenge of the License: Friday the 13th

Yes, retro gaming fans, it’s another “Revenge of the License” column.  Last week we checked out the first James Bond adventure for the home computer, A View to a Kill.  Today we’re jumping into the horror genre to look at Friday the 13th.  But not that one.  Nooooo.  As much as I love the NES […]

Retro Collectible: NES Batman Action Figure Coming

Who here remembers the 1989 Batman on the Nintendo Entertainment System or the movie it was based on? Probably more than a couple of you. Well, the National Entertainment Collectibles Association (NECA) sure does. They have done action figures for classic licensed NES characters before, such as the Jason Voorhees figure from the NES Friday […]

Splatterhouse Brings Home Blood, Guts and Ski Masks to Turbo Grafx-16: Today in History- April 21st, 1990

When NEC released the Turbo Grafx-16 in North America it was instantly the underdog in gamer’s eyes. This was the first outing for NEC in this territory and for all intents and purposes, no real name brand games were available or on the horizon for this new console. NEC had a tough road to walk […]
