PlayStation Agony, Part 1: The Simpsons Wrestling

When Carl, the man I perceive as the primary antagonist in my life as a video game character, used a sledgehammer to defeat the lock on my door, my heart slid into my colon. “Time to pay the piper,” he said, holding up a paper shopping bag. “Donald Trump will be president, therefore you lost the […]

Revenge of the License: The Godfather (Amiga)

Let’s say you hit the jackpot. You just chased down one of the biggest licenses you could hope to land. A legendary bulwark of American cinema based on a best-selling novel by Mario Puzo, “The Godfather” is a guaranteed slam-dunk in the gaming world no matter what you deliver. So how do you pay homage […]

Defender of the Crown Coming to Mattel Intellivision

Recently we covered the sale of Cinemaware, the owners of the Defender of the Crown games, to Starbreeze.  Well, in the comments of that article we were alerted to a legal port of Defender of the Crown to the Mattel Intellivision.  Once I heard this, I knew I had to bring forward an article covering […]

Beetlejuice!  Beetlejuice! Beetlejuice! – Today in History – May 7th, 1991

Fans of this period of video games knows that there are more than a few licensed titles to pick from.  Some are quite good while others make the Nintendo Entertainment System version of Total Recall look like a masterpiece.  Beetlejuice is one of those that ran the middle ground quite well as far as licensed […]

Today in Retro Gaming: Alien Resurrection (PS1)

It’s sad that one of the best licensed titles of the 32-bit era was based on one of the two most reviled films in the Alien universe, but if you can ignore the bile rising in your throat at the thought of playing Alien Resurrection, you’re going to find a ridiculously playable FPS that manages […]

Revenge of the License: Jurassic Park

What with the opening of “Jurassic World” this weekend in the US, we decided to hold off on a new “Revenge of the License” column in the hopes of catching readers who just want to read about some dinosaur games. Thus, we present a re-run of Michael’s column from last year about this hidden gem […]

Wacky Wednesday – Hellraiser (NES)

Some things are such obviously bad ideas we don’t even bother considering them unless it’s a matter of life and death.  They aren’t things we have to consciously reject; without someone pointing them out, they’re not even going to pop up on our radar (which is why a guy can walk past a full sink […]

Gauntlet Trudges onto the Nintendo Entertainment System: December 1st, 1985

Tengen was one of those companies that weren’t afraid to go their own route in life, even if that meant going against the Big N and their, seemingly monopolistic, control of the gaming scene in the 80’s.  Gauntlet was one of those titles that every gamer worth their salt knew about, it was big in […]

Leery Licensing: Marlboro Licensed Atari Lynx, Plus Prototype Game

Atari was not scared to get out there and try weird things, like trying to convince gamers that the Jaguar was actually a 64-Bit console.  Anyhow, Atari was at least trying (Sega, I am looking your way concerning the Dreamcast).  Atari’s only hand held, the Lynx, was a decently popular device though it was, unfortunately, […]

Bandit Gaming: Hook for Atari 8-Bit Work in Progress

Hook, the movie starring the late Robin Williams and Dustin Hoffman, was a decent flick.  The movie was better than the games that were made for it (though the SNES and Sega CD versions had awesome soundtracks).  For an intellectual property that is over 100 years old, the story holds up quite well, partly thanks […]
