Review – Phantasy Star II for Sega Genesis

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. There’s been a sudden increase in bio-monsters on your home planet, and Rolf is given a mission to locate a recorder in a […]

Contra_Hardcore_Sega_Genesis_Konami_retro_retrogaming

When we initially got the first bit of news about Contra Hard Corps for the Sega Genesis the press of the time pointed out another game, Gunstar Heroes a lot.  There was mention that Konami must be going all out because they lost so many programmers to the recently formed Treasure (developer of Gunstar Heroes).  […]

5 Disney 16-Bit Games We Want Re-Released That Don’t Star Mickey Mouse

DonaldDuckasMauiMallardinColdShadowU007

It is no secret that recently Disney re-released three classics on to the popular GOG.com service.  That is great news and just got me to thinking about what other Disney games from the 16-Bit days that need to be re-released.  It took a bit of work but here is my list.  I already covered the […]

Disney Releases Jungle Book, Aladdin and Lion King on PC

Aladdin_Disney_Sega_Genesis

Disney games during the 16-Bit era were some of the best games you could purchase, outside of something with Mario in the title.  It was just accepted fact that Disney was quality gaming back then.  The games were, mostly, licensed by competent companies that were not scared to put honest to goodness work into making […]

Sega Genesis Scooby Doo Mystery Spanish Translation Released

Scooby_Doo_Mystery_Sega_Genesis_point_click_retro_retrogaming_Acclaim_Spanish

I like to keep our friends that speak other languages in the loop of new releases.  For instance, Spanish speaking readers may be interested in Scooby Doo Mystery for the Sega Genesis- a game that was previously only available in English.  This is a traditional point and click adventure game, now available to Spanish gamers […]

Shining in the Darkness Unleashes Hellish Dungeon Romping on Sega Genesis – Today in Retro Gaming – August 6th, 1991

Shining_Darkness_Sega_Genesis_retro_retrogaming

First person dungeon crawling adventures and me go WAY back.  I love them.  Probably my favorite genre, especially those that allow you to control a single person (I view everyone extra as just stats and equipment mules).  While not a single party first person dungeon crawler, Shining in the Darkness is still quite awesome.  I […]

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

Dynamite_Headdy_Sega_Genesis_retro_retrogaming

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 […]

Sega Genesis Earthworm Jim Brings Disgusting Television Commercials to Gamers – Today in Retro Gaming – August 2nd, 1994

Earthworm_Jim_Sega_Genesis_Playmates_Interactive_Shiny_Entertainment

Okay, this is one of those that I find hard to keep on topic type articles.  The marketing campaign for Earthworm Jim was genius.  It was disgusting.  It was iconic.  It was in your face and like NOTHING else on television at the time.  That was how you made an impression with people seeing your […]

Sega Unleashes Shining Force onto Sega Genesis – Today in Retro Gaming – July 30th, 1993

Shining_Force_Sega_genesis_retro_retrogaming

Sega was working hard during the 16-Bit era.  For the first time they were either on top, or near the top, of the video game market.  Nintendo was no longer the juggernaut they once were though they still held a lot of power with gamers and retailers.  Sega was able to put many chinks in […]

Phantasy Star III Generations of Doom Ignores Classic Formula on Sega Genesis – Today in Retro Gaming – July 25th, 1991

Phantasy_Star_III_Generations_Doom_Sega_Genesis_RPG

When the Sega Genesis was released, Sega was pretty much operating on a clean slate with most of the fans that bought it.  Their previous console, the Sega Master System was not much more than a cult hit in the United States (while it rocked in other countries).  This was due to a lot of […]
