Revenge of the License: The Thing

The final installment of this column prior to Halloween saved the best for last. There’s no denying John Carpenter’s “The Thing” from 1982 is a master class in claustrophobic paranoia. Forget the 2011 prequel and turn your attention to the 2002 sequel, developed with Carpenter’s blessing as a continuation/expansion of the events from the movie on its […]

The Black Sheep of Horror Gaming: Silent Hill 4

When Halloween slips around, you have tons of choices for hosting a retro-themed scare-a-thon on your big screen. It’s easy to dive straight into the likes of Resident Evil 4, Silent Hill 2, or even Friday the 13th. Formerly obscure titles like Sweet Home on the NES and Clock Tower for the PS1 have been […]

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

Picking right up where Castlevania Rondo of Blood left off, Castlevania Symphony of the Night was a seminal release for many fans of the franchise.  This was Konami doing what Konami excelled at- 2D side scrolling action.  The difference here was that while there was a lot of action, probably more than any other Castlevania […]

Duke Nukem 3D 20th Anniversary Edition World Tour Coming to Playstation 4 Xbox One and Windows

When you think of classic first person shooters you will probably fondly remember potty mouthed Duke Nukem 3D.    3D Realms were in a unique position as they were fighting not only a plethora of competition- some of that competition was Doom, Doom II and other popular first person shooters of the time.  How do you […]

GoldenEye 007 Xbox Live Arcade Remake Footage Released

When Microsoft purchased Rare it was nearly demanded by fans that GoldenEye 007 see an HD re-release.  While that never happened Rare and Microsoft did do their best to satiate fans with remakes of many of Rare’s classic titles.  From Conker’s Bad Fur Day to Perfect Dark – if Rare released it on a Nintendo […]

It is not new news that Monster Boy is finally getting the re-release treatment as that has been covered by nearly everyone in the gaming world.  We have intended to cover it here on Retro Gaming Magazine but other things kept popping up.  Monster Boy and the Cursed Kingdom is coming to the Playstation 4, […]

Wacky Wednesday: A Most Illegal Game

For all the furor that erupts over the release of a game that “crosses the line” in the United States, full bans are never the end result. At most you see the occasional recall (see: Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas over the unfinished “Hot Coffee” content) or the ESRB threatening an Adults Only rating to prevent it […]

So Bad It’s Good: Run Like Hell (And Grab Your Bawls)

A guy travelling through space arrives at his intended destination to discover nearly everyone on board is dead, and his love interest is missing. Occasionally with the help of a partner, but usually all by himself, he proceeds through the levels in third-person perspective, solving puzzles, reading other people’s e-mail, upgrading his arsenal, and destroying aliens […]

So Bad It’s Good – Dark Summit Rocked the Slopes

If you ask someone to name a great snowboarding game from the PS2/Xbox/Gamecube generation, the only one that should come to mind for any normal person will have ‘SSX’ somewhere in the title. Anyone who’s first response is Dark Summit, published by THQ in 2001, isn’t in full possession of his faculties. Evidence for this […]
