Sega Acquires Technosoft Franchises, Slowly Becoming Another Electronic Arts

sega_3d_archives_technosoft_nintendo_3ds_retro_retrogaming

Sega is a company that fans REALLY want to love and support but that love and support is more often than not met with lackluster Sonic the Hedgehog games.  This bothers a lot of the gaming populace that remember Sega of old. The Sega that released Comix Zone, Streets of Rage 1, 2 and 3 […]

Streets of Rage Brings Fight to Sega Genesis – Today in Retro Gaming – September 18th, 1991

streets_rage_sega_genesis_brawler

A funny thing happened to Sega when they released their Genesis console.  For a very long period in gaming history, they were approaching, or were on, the top of the gaming world.  They were the talk of the town across the globe.  Nintendo still had a stranglehold on videogames but the success of the Sega […]

Streets of Rage Series – Left in 16-Bit

Batman_Superman_Streets_Rage_Sega_Genesis_retro_ROMHacking_retrogaming (1)

Sega was riding high during the 16-Bit days when they were able to finally break into the mainstream with the Sega Genesis console. There truly were some classics released for this defunct console. Sonic the Hedgehog debuted here, Alex Kidd stepped up his game from the Master System days, Vectorman kicked butt through two games […]

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

Gaiares box (JP)

Last year we held a combination shouting match/kumite among the staff to determine the fifteen hardest NES games, discounting Battletoads. In the end, two things happened. First, you all made it the most-read, most-shared column we’ve ever published–you rock! Second, the local hospital told us if we pulled a stunt like that again, they would ‘accidentally’ […]

Henshin Engine Hits Kickstarter Bringing PC Engine Turbo Grafx 16 Action Platformer Home

henshin_Engine_PC_engine_turbo_grafx_16

New Turbo Grafx-16, also known as PC Engine in Japan, games are not all that regular today.  Fans have become accustomed to maybe one new game for this console per year, if that.  Compared to the Sega Genesis and Atari 2600 new game output by independent developers, this is rather sad.  Someone didn’t tell Sarumaru […]

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

Batman_Forever_Robin_Sega_Acclaim_Genesis_Game_Gear

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 […]

Konami Attempts Mascot with Rocket Knight Adventures – Today in Retro Gaming – September 3rd, 1993

Rocket Knight Adventures Konami Sega Genesis

Konami used to be this really awesome game publisher.  They were all over the place with their releases, especially during the 16-Bit wars.  They would often release the same title on both the Super Nintendo and the Sega Genesis but they took the time to tweak said title for each platform.  Rocket Knight Adventures is […]

Star Cruiser Receives English Translation by Fans for Sega Genesis Console

Star_Cruiser_Namco_Sega_Genesis_fan_translation_english

Star Cruiser was one of those unreleased games that was featured prominently in gaming magazines back in the day like Electronic Gaming Monthly.  Fans were excited because this was one of those titles that was quite impossible on the previous 8-Bit consoles such as the Nintendo Entertainment System.  I believe it was linked to Namco […]

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

Acclaim_retro_retrogaming_logo

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 […]

PSIITitle

  In 1990, Sega released Phantasy Star II in North America, the second installment in the sci-fi RPG series. The story takes place 1000 years after the events of the first game.
