Capcom Bringing Four Arcade Classics to Mobile

Retro gaming fans must be understanding. Sometimes companies get things right when porting older games to newer platforms. Sometimes they royally screw up the conversion. Sadly, this is the case with Capcom’s most recent attempts at porting a classic franchise to mobile. Recently Capcom re-released Mega Man one through six on Android and well, to […]

Battle Princess Madelyn Working Through Steam Greenlight

Okay, there is a lot of fanfare about Battle Princess Madelyn, and for good reason. Many compare it to Ghouls ‘n Ghosts by Capcom, and that is also for good reason. This game is full of action and deadly creatures waiting to end your game early. Oh yeah, this one may be heading to that […]

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

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’ […]

5 Indie Titles Prove 2D Still Lives

2D is a rarer and rarer occurrence, especially on consoles. That is saddening for a retro gaming fan like myself as I grew up playing the greats. Super Mario Bros 1/2 (site link)/3 (site link)/World/Land, Mega Man series, Castlevania (site link) etc. Even the obscure ones like Shockman (Turbo Grafx-16), Popful Mail (Sega CD), even […]

Volgarr the Viking Ported to Sega Dreamcast, Released for Free with Permission

Volgarr the Viking is a newer 2D side scrolling action adventure for Microsoft’s Xbox and Steam, well it was released almost a year ago but that is still newer than Rygar or Ghouls n Ghosts, right?  I mention those two classics because it is quite clear that Volgarr the Viking is taking, at least, visual […]

Curses ‘N Chaos Review, See How the Windows Version Stands Up to Heritage

Before I start this review, I have to be clear that Curses ‘N Chaos is not a Ghouls ‘n Ghosts ripoff in any way.  Sure, both use pixels to convey their charms and a few enemies are shared between the games but that is about the end of the similarities.  Curses ‘N Chaos is quite […]

Maldita Castilla is Coming to Sega Genesis and Mega Drive

Ah, Ghouls n Ghosts sits alone in that style of game for the Sega Genesis, Mega Drive everywhere outside of North America.  That is not stopping developer Locomalito from bringing his, wholly, original title, Maldita Castilla to the Sega Genesis.  Maldita Castilla is already available for Windows computers and is freeware (review coming soon).  This […]

New Game: The Waste Land Brings Ghouls n Ghosts Bosses to Castlevania Looking Metroid Styled Levels

Okay, that title is a little all over the place but bear with me on this one.  The Waste Land is representative of all of those titles with a possible bit of 8 Eyes mixed in for good measure- the design combination is very hard to pin down.  Based on T.S. Eliot’s poem, The Waste […]

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 […]

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 […]
