Happy 23rd Birthday, Super Nintendo!

The hype was unreal. The tension was palpable. The gaming press couldn’t print information, rumor, speculation, and screenshots fast enough. As the August 23rd release date approached in 1991, the question on every gamer’s mind was simple: “Could Nintendo do it?” After giving Sega a two-year head start with the Genesis, after suffering the slings […]

Lion King II, The (Unl) [!]000

Bandit Gaming- Lion King 2 for Sega Genesis

Lion King was a popular movie and it was a popular video game license. Officially, there was no sequel released on the Sega Genesis but that has not stopped an unknown Chinese developer from creating a pseudo sequel.

Tommy Lasorda Baseball Was the Unexpected Launch Title for Sega Genesis – Today in History – August 14, 1989

When you think of launch titles for a console you probably won’t come to a sports title being one of them. That is exactly what Sega did with Tommy Lasorda Baseball which not so ironically is an arcade port (Sega went with their strong points with this console launch). Tommy Lasorda Baseball does not feature […]

Super Thunder Blade Pits You Against Guerilla Warfare Enemies on Sega Genesis – Today in History – August 14, 1989

Similar in style to Space Harrier II, another Sega Genesis launch title, Super Thunder Blade is an arcade port and also a psuedo 3D into the screen scrolling. Enemies, and obstacles, appear in the distance and scroll towards your helicopter- all the while shooting and doing everything they can to bring you down, quickly. Shooter […]

Thunder Force II Brings Arcade Quality Scrolling Shooter Action to Sega Genesis – Today in History – August 14, 1989

Scrolling shooter fans were well served with the Sega Genesis and right out of the gate they got Thunder Force II from Sega/Technosoft. While not an arcade shooter, Thunder Force II would have been at home in the arcades if it was released there. Interestingly, Sega really covered several genres with the launch of the […]

Hokuto no Ken Drops License, Gets Named Last Battle on Sega Genesis – Today in History – August 14, 1989

Sega, having just launched their Sega Genesis as their second North American console, were looking to bring over titles that showed why this console was better than the competing Nintendo NES and NEC Turbo Grafx-16. Rather than shelling out the money for the Hokuto no Ken (aka Fist of the North Star) license, Sega simply […]

Rise From Your Grave, Altered Beast – Today in History – August 14, 1989

As mentioned in the history article for the Sega Genesis, Altered Beast was the pack in title. For gamers that got into gaming after the original Playstation launched, a pack in game is just that, a game that came with the console, an actual full game- not a demo. Altered Beast was not the greatest […]

Sega Threw Down the Gauntlet with the Sega Genesis – Today in History – August 14, 1989

Sega was a clear second in the 8-Bit wars against the Nintendo Entertainment System. The Sega Master System was held back by so many problems that Sega was ill-fitted to rectify. With the launch of the Genesis though, Sega was throwing down the gauntlet and pulling out all of the stops. They were focusing on […]

Tekken 3 Sega Genesis Namco Bandit Gaming retro

Bandit Gaming: Tekken 3 on Sega Genesis

Tekken is one of those games that helped push more Playstation sales during the 32-Bit wars than any other game during that time. Sony’s first console was home to three Tekken games and fans ate each of them up as fast as they were released. Now, imagine how Namco’s flagship fighting game would look on […]
