Destroy Your Friendships with Dokapon Kingdom

Death, betrayal, backstabbing, and the destruction of every relationship you’ve ever held dear, that is Dokapon Kingdom. It is the bastard child of Monopoly and Dragon Quest developed by Sting Entertainment. A mixture of an RPG and a board game, in Dokapon Kingdom your goal is simple: become ludicrously rich while sacrificing all of your […]

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 […]

Sega Acquires Technosoft Franchises, Slowly Becoming Another Electronic Arts

Sega is a company that fans REALLY want to love and support but that love and support is more often than not met with lackluster Sonic the Hedgehog games.  This bothers a lot of the gaming populace that remember Sega of old. The Sega that released Comix Zone, Streets of Rage 1, 2 and 3 […]

Kingdom Hearts Playstation 2

Kingdom Hearts Mixes Disney with Square Enix on Playstation 2 – Today in Retro Gaming – September 16th, 2002

When I first heard about Kingdom Hearts I was a little dismayed.  I was, still am, a big Disney fan but I was coming out of the whole “Square rocks” phase of my gaming life.  I was interested in seeing what they did with, what was basically, a blanket Disney license like this (it surely […]

Oddballs in Gaming: HM: A Wonderful Life

Developed by Victor Interactive Software and published by Natsume in 2003. A Wonderful Life was the future of the Harvest Moon series, but while the reviews were positive the game polarized the fan base. Harvest Moon A Wonderful Life was the oddball game in the long-standing HM series that tried to achieve so much, but […]

Retro Gaming Over Saturation – Are We There Yet?

It seems that with each new release of hardware in the console and hand held worlds we see re-releases of retro games.  Whether these are compilations of classics or single releases themselves.  This has been going on since the first follow up console was released in the 1980’s.  Companies have been working to monetize past […]

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- Turok: Evolution was Intense!

Banished to the bargain bins and almost universally condemned by critics, Turok: Evolution is remembered in the public’s eye as the retarded stepchild of the Turok series. Released in 2002 for the PS2 and GameCube, the Xbox port was eventually canceled for North America after reception of the game reached developers. However, some of us […]
