Playstation Doused with Blood by Castlevania Symphony of the Night – Today in Retro Gaming – October 2nd, 1997

5 Sega Genesis Titles for Some Halloween Fun

Yesterday I published a similar piece for the Nintendo Entertainment System, today I am tackling the Sega Genesis.  Sega’s console has a few more graphical titles that would never have been approved on the Nintendo NES that is for sure.  Sega had a much looser requirement on the whole “family friendly” image unlike Nintendo who […]

Revenge of the License: 2600 Trilogy of Terror!

Whassup all my retro gamer bro-dawgs? It’s October, in case you hadn’t noticed, and round these parts, October mandates that gamers start rounding up the carts and discs with a decidedly creepier theme to them.
