Sonic Brings Speed to Sega Genesis – Today in Retro Gaming – June 23rd, 1991

Sega were in a dire situation when they were pushing their Genesis console in 1991.  The Super Nintendo (SNES) release was looming in North America after a quite successful launch in Japan.  Sega was hurting.  Nintendo had Mario and it was well known that Super Mario World was going to be the pack-in title with […]

7 Cool Streets of Rage 2 Hacks

Streets of Rage 2 is one of those titles that fans simply will not allow to die.  That is great because the game is quite good.  While the original is good, fans have taken the character selection a few steps beyond what Sega ever thought of.  Buckle up sunshine, this is going to be a […]

Sega Genesis Receives Zelda Clone Crusader of Centy – Today in Retro Gaming – June 16th, 1994

Nintendo had the Legend of Zelda series since the 8-Bit days.  Sega kind of was lacking in the action game with light role playing elements category.  Sure, Sega had the Phantasy Star series but that was more of an answer to Square’s Final Fantasy series than Zelda.  It took until June 1994 before there was […]

Mega Q-Bert Sega Genesis Review

Q-Bert is a classic title that retrogaming fans either love or hate.  This either/or sense of feeling about the game is due to the control scheme and the angled playfield.  For me, I was not a fan of Q-Bert in my younger days as I was simply too hard headed to accept the control scheme […]

Great Circus Mystery Gets Magical on Sega Genesis – Today in Retro Gaming – June 2nd 1994

When you think back to the 16-Bit era, what is it that stands out to you the most?  Is it the plethora of original titles that fans got?  Is it the many quality licensed games that were released?  For me, on days like this, I have to go with the second one.  The Great Circus […]

7 Sega Genesis Reboots Retro Gaming Needs

Reboots are always a popular thing.  They are almost guaranteed sales.  They are also under much more scrutiny than a fresh launch.  Retro gaming fans sometimes tend to have quite high requirements for the level of quality of a reboot.  Multiply that statement a few times if it is a beloved fan favorite.  Capcom has […]

Kid Chameleon Masks Abilities on Sega Genesis – Today in Retro Gaming – May 28th, 1992

Sega throughout the 16-Bit era, and many would argue the 8-Bit era too, was constantly trying to find a mascot.  They did this by throwing just about every game that was well put together and had a cool hook to it out to gamers.  The problem with this method of mascot hunting was, not many […]

Revenge of the License: Board Games

The most obvious shortcut you can take as a game developer is to make a game out of something that is already a game. Chess programs have been used to sell people on the idea of home computers since the 1970s, every version of Windows has shipped with Solitaire built right in, and casino games […]

Blast Processing

Wacky Wednesday: Blast Processing Takedown

Three things became clear in 1994. First, Arkansas refused to bring anything but shame and disgrace upon the rest of the country by allowing Carl, my editor, to remain in high school. Second, Sega wasn’t going anywhere–five years of stomping all over Nintendo of America’s turf clearly wasn’t enough for them, they were having too […]

Flicky Unsung Hero of Sega’s Games Arrives on Genesis – Today in History – May 1st, 1991

Tell me if you can.  Who has the most “background” appearances in gaming?  No, I don’t mean the turtles and the mushroom enemies of the Super Mario series since those are enemies- they are expected to appear.  I mean the little guys, the ones that hardly anyone knows the name of but can point them […]
