Tiny Toon Adventures Busts Onto Sega Genesis – Today in History – February 7th, 1993

When Sega released Sonic onto the world, it just furthered the notion that every company needed a mascot.  This was particularly true for console manufacturers- there needed to be an exclusive game series that was ONLY on one platform to entice gamers to buy into it.  This was also true for third parties though, especially […]

Sonic the Hedgehog 3 Ends Run on Genesis on a High Note – Today in History – February 2nd, 1994

It is unclear what was going through the minds of the executives at Sega when they got the designs for Sonic the Hedgehog but it is clear that gamers loved him.  Sonic proved that gamers were tired of slow games and they wanted speed- not just in racing games but in action games too.  By […]

Sword of Vermillion Brings Action Role Playing to Sega Genesis – Today in History – January 28th, 1991

When you have someone on staff like Yu Suzuki you have to let them spread their wings and fly.  With Sword of Vermillion that is exactly what Sega did- this was Yu Suzuki’s first console exclusive title, sadly it was not exactly a sales record setting release.  Sword of Vermillion was a few game engines […]

Streets of Rage 2 box

Today in Reto Gaming – Streets of Rage 2

When it comes to Sega’s 16-bit library, there are classics and then there are classics, if you know what I’m saying. Streets of Rage 2 (Bare Knuckle 2 for you Asian readers) is, by any definition of the world, a straight up classic. It’s a classic’s classic. It makes most other fighting games available on […]

No Escape box

Revenge of the License: No Escape (SNES)

In October of 2014, I proclaimed The Ring: Terror’s Realm on the Sega Dreamcast the absolute worst licensed video game ever made. It fails in so many spectacular ways and creates such a train wreck of confusion and absurdity that I devoted an entire article to explaining this point. A little over a year later, […]

5 New Sega Genesis Games

Since the “5 New Sega Master System Games” article was a great success I figured why not give Sega Genesis fans the same opportunity. There is not nearly as much stuff being developed for the Sega Genesis as there is the Sega Master System though. That makes it a little tougher to find interesting new […]

Why Wasn’t This a Hit- Mr Nutz by Ocean for Sega Genesis and Super Nintendo

Welcome to the first Why Wasn’t this a Hit: Mr. Nutz. This is not going to really be a review but more of a retrospective editorial looking into why the game in question didn’t become a hit. Mr. Nutz not quite the name you would expect to see on a game from 1993 (SNES) and 1994 […]

4 Unlicensed Donkey Kong Country Games You Missed Out On

Donkey Kong Country was one of the most visually impressive Super Nintendo titles.  It left Sega and their Genesis sitting out cold as far as anything to compare.  The Silicon Graphics workstation graphics were just too visually impressive and it drew in gamers like wildfire sucks up forests.  Nintendo knew they had a hit on […]
