Batman Forever Proves Digitized Graphics Aren’t Always Best – Today in Retro Gaming – September 4th 1995

With the popularity of titles like Mortal Kombat it was only a matter of time before we got a fully digitized brawler.  Acclaim was fine with doing just that for fans of the movie Batman Forever (there were some, right?) on the Sega Genesis and the Game Gear- both of which were released today in […]

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 […]

Dynamite Headdy Proves Using Your Head Works – Today in Retro Gaming – August 4th, 1994

Sega had a lot of work ahead of them when they were able to take the lead in the 16-Bit race.  Nintendo was coming with the Super Nintendo and it was guaranteed to be a sales success and Sega knew it.  While Sega fumbled quite a bit early on, they were able to turn things […]

Swabby Homebrew Independent Sega Game Gear Shooter Released

Scrolling shooters.  You are probably tired of me bringing up that the heyday of this genre being long gone.  That is fine.  It seems to be working.  We are seeing more scrolling shooting games pop up from the independent developer world.  That makes me happy.  I mean, I still for the most part suck at […]

Piko Interactive Release First 3 Games of 9 Total New Titles

You read that slightly confusing headline right- Piko Interactive have just released the first three new titles in a planned nine new game set.  It is not that often that we see a single homebrew game released for a defunct console such as the Super Nintendo or Sega Genesis.  That is why we are doing […]

WildSnake for Sega Game Gear Found and Digitally Preserved

Being a fan of retrogaming sometimes has its better than average benefits.  For instance, it has recently been announced that a prototype for WildSnake on the Sega Game Gear has been found and has been digitally preserved by the team over at SMS Power.  Up till now, WildSnake was an unreleased game on the Sega […]

Revenge of the License – Alien 3

Continuing with our theme of Halloween Horror, this week’s column focuses on what, for most people, is the worst film in the quadrilogy. We can argue the merits and weaknesses of Fincher’s installment all day long, but if you’ve never seen the Assembly Cut, whatever opinions you have formed are wrong. But let’s save bickering […]

Today in History: March 22nd, 1994- Shining Force CD Slashes onto Sega CD

Shining Force is one of those series that Sega really dropped the ball with, the whole “Shining” series probably became too dilluted and convoluted for Sega to keep up with it. So they dropped it like a hot potato. Unfortunate as this was really one of the series, along with Phantasy Star, that Sega could […]

Fan Translation: Royal Stone Released for Sega Game Gear

There are not too terribly many Game Gear titles that are Japan exclusives that require extensive knowledge of the language to play. One more title, Royal Stone, has been taken off of that list and is now available in English thanks to Aeon Genesis for providing this fan translation.
