Sega Genesis Receives First Batman Game – Today in Retro Gaming – July 19th, 1990

Batman has always been a hot commodity in gaming.  The majority of games based on the caped crusader are good.  This is a contradiction to licensed games in general though as most are horrible, particularly those based on movies.  The Sega Genesis version doesn’t follow the movie 100% to a “T” but there is a […]

Conjoined Atari 2600 Game Kickstarting Now

Okay, I will be honest here.  When first contacted about covering the upcoming Kickstarter for a new Atari 2600 game, I was apprehensive that it would succeed.  I mean, in this day and age?  I am used to people making illegal ports of games to the Atari 2600- stuff you cannot easily take to crowdfunding […]

Centipede, Missile Command Movies Coming

When you think of classic games that could make interesting movies, do you think of a horror themed Pac-Man?  What about a whip wielding adventure ala Pitfall?  I bet Centipede and Missile Command are not high on your list of potential movie candidates.  Well, they are on the list for Emmett/Furla/Oasis Films and they have […]

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 […]

Sharknado Still Coming to Atari 2600 Now New Name

It is interesting to me how much companies will go out of their way to protect an intellectual property in certain areas.  Take Sharknado for example.  AtariAge forum member, “neotokeo2001” was working on a game that used the name “Sharknado” and it was “similarly” based on the movie of the same name.  I say similarly […]

Another World, aka Out of this World, Fan Short Film

I am from North America so I will be using the name Out of this World instead of Another World since that is what I know it by.  When Out of this World hit in the early 1990’s on the Super Nintendo it was a revelation in gaming.  For many it was not quite their […]

Silent Hill Lives on in Half Life 2 through Alchemilla Mod with Oculus Rift Option

Silent Hill is one of those franchises that appeared during the 32-Bit Sony Playstation days that simply has not died, at least till recently.  Konami recently announced that the new Silent Hill title is more than likely not going to see the light of day (in Silent Hill, was there really any light?).  The horror […]

The Lost Boys Finally See Game Release on Nintendo Entertainment System

The Lost Boys, a cult classic movie from the late 80’s about a group of vampires living the surfer style life in California, is finally the subject of a Nintendo Entertainment System.  The Lost Boys on the NES is a 2D side scrolling action adventure title which is available on cartridge from Chipmasters.  Interestingly, this […]

Five Great Side Scrolling Action Games that are Not Mario

It is no secret to retrogaming fans that Nintendo single handedly revived the North American video game market with their Nintendo Entertainment System and a little game called Super Mario Bros.  Nintendo was not new to the North American gaming world, they had several titles out on earlier consoles when they were, what would later […]

Review: World 1-1

Gaming has been involved in general culture since they were first introduced to players.  We have seen movies feature games in the background, sometimes in the spotlight of scenes, but few documentaries have been produced on our favorite hobby.  Thanks to independent film makers, Jeanette Garcia and Daryl Rodriguez, we can add World 1-1 to […]
