Top 3 Stand-Alone GB Games Based On Classic Series (Top 3 Tuesday)

Sometimes one is capable of dealing with life’s shenanigans. Other times life starts punching below the belt. This is my excuse for failure to comment on the last couple of Top 3 Tuesday videos put out by MichaelBtheGameGenie. Enough is enough: it is time to write! This week, MichaelB proposed “Top 3 Game Boy Games […]

Book Report: Downright Bizarre Games by Michael Thomasson

One of the most rewarding things about my job here at RGM is putting a game that has no business being in anyone’s library into the system, pressing power, and sharing the stupid with all of you. Over the years I’ve defiled my PlayStation with Hooters Road Trip and Simpsons Wrestling, subjected my PC to […]

Super Mario Land 2 – Six Golden Coins Pushes Nintendo Game Boy – Today in Retro Gaming – November 2nd, 1992

Nintendo have a way of delivering more out of their hardware than what is first thought possible.  Take the original, salad green screen, Game Boy hand held for instance.  While Tetris was pretty good looking and true to other versions (it better be, it was just blocks), Super Mario Land was quite different versus the […]

Nintendo Gives Game Boy Players Pokemon Red & Blue – Today in Retro Gaming – September 28th, 1998

When Nintendo brought over the Pokemon franchise it is unclear if they knew it would have been as big a success in the North American market or not.  Sure, now we can look back and say they did everything right and reaped the success from it.  While many players raised all kinds of trouble, at […]

Review – Retroid Nintendo Game Boy Homebrew

Out of all of the games that we see receive fan homages regularly one genre seems to be forgotten just as often.  That is the Arkanoid style brick breaker game, also known as Breakout.  Well, the developers behind Retroid for the Nintendo Game Boy certainly remember those two classics.  Sure, the Game Boy already received […]

Project AM2R Another Metroid 2 Remake Dead for Good, Nintendo Delivers Final Nail in Coffin of Fan Project

We have kept quiet after our interview with the Project AM2R (Another Metroid 2 Remake) team.  Why?  Because Nintendo had delivered a cease and desist to the project we figured it was dead at that point.  Instead, development continued on the fan project and little things were fixed here and there and released on torrent […]

Acclaim Closes Their Doors – Today in Retro Gaming – September 1st, 2004

Old school game publishers going out of business is never fun to write about.  With Acclaim though it is kind of bittersweet.  While they held some of the best licenses of whatever generation of console we are talking about, they would also universally phone in the quality of the underlying game.  For many, they made games […]

Nintendo Taking Action Against Metroid 2 Remake Release

It was rather interesting this last weekend.  We saw the release of AM2R, aka Another Metroid 2 Remake, for Windows computers and I did a 20 articles in less than 48 hours challenge (successfully).  I even posted a spoiler free review of AM2R here on Retro Gaming Magazine.  Sadly, today Monday August 8th, is a […]

AM2R Return of Samus Review on Windows

What do you do when you are notified by one of your biggest supporters in the gaming community about this new game coming out?  A game that you knew about years ago, or at least heard about it, saw some rumbling in the press recently and it was releasing within the hour (my time flies).  […]

Pokémon GO Fuelling Collector Frenzy?

So, I was browsing through ebay’s Game Boy carts (as collectors do!) and noticed that there’s a lot of original Red, Blue and Yellow Pokémon games that have sold for more than a few hundred pounds recently. I guess the popularity of Pokémon GO could be fueling high collector prices as people try to recapture […]
