Kickstarter: Component Cables for SNES and Genesis Now Underway

As time passes, it becomes more difficult to get your classic systems hooked up to newer equipment. HDTVs want HDMI or Component video input, and if you’re stuck with the standard Yellow/Red/White Composite cables that came with your 16-bit system, you might be out of luck.

Volgarr the Viking Xbox One Crazy Vikings Studios 2

New Game: Volgarr the Viking on Xbox One, PC, Mac Reminds Us of When Games Were Tough

It is no secret that Microsoft is kind of taking a beating with the Xbox One versus the Playstation 4 right now.  While there are many possible reasons for this, I like to think it is a case of lack of retro content available for the platform- Sony has their whole PSOne Classics catalog of […]

Revenge of the License – Alien 3

Continuing with our theme of Halloween Horror, this week’s column focuses on what, for most people, is the worst film in the quadrilogy.

Game Hack: Donkey Kong Hacked into Streets of Rage 2 on Sega Genesis

Hacks of Streets of Rage 2 are nothing new, it is more a case of covering the more interesting ones than it is a matter of simply covering every one of them. When I saw Donkey Kong had infiltrated the Sega Genesis brawler I knew I had to write it up, this is just too […]

Okay, who reading this has played Sonic 3 and also tried the first, and only, lock-on cartridge add-on known as Sonic and Knuckles?

Revenge of the License: Wolverine: Adamantium Rage

You can argue with the rest of the internet until your keyboard bangers are worn down into worthless little bone-tipped spurs, but you will be unable to stem the Super Douchebaggery tide which inevitably overwhelms you should you claim Wolverine was anything less than the best at what he did back in the 1990’s.

Fatalities Expanded in Mortal Kombat II – Today in History – September 9th, 1994

It is pretty much accepted fact that Nintendo’s censorship policy literally gave the Sega Genesis a slight upper hand when the original Mortal Kombat was released on home consoles.
