Phantasy_Star_III_Generations_Doom_Sega_Genesis_RPG

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 […]

Okay, it is becoming quite clear that Papi Commando is going to be around awhile.  Vetea, the developer of the PC franchise, is keeping his little geriatric character moving forward.  First, we saw him in a Commando style action game (hence the name).  Since then he went onto star in another action game and now […]

Saint_Sword_Sega_Genesis_Taito_Rastan_action_fantasy

What do you do when someone else has a really popular title?  Why, you copy it as best you can.  That is apparently what Taito did in the early 90’s when they released Saint Sword for the Sega Genesis.  They followed the idea of Rastan as best they could but as with most copycats, they […]
