Grand Theft Auto Brings Open World Crime to Playstation – Today in Retro Gaming – June 30th, 1998

Did you know that Grand Theft Auto was initially planned to be a Commodore Amiga title?  While never having been released for that classic computer, it did go on and sell millions of copies on the original Playstation and successor consoles.  Grand Theft Auto was one of those titles that was blamed for a lot […]

Street Fighter Alpha 3 Flawlessly Ends Trilogy of Arcade Games – Today in Retro Gaming – June 29th, 1998

It is not like Capcom to simply release a fighting game and not milk it somehow.  We saw this with Street Fighter II which has many updates, all of which were additional full purchases, on Super Nintendo and Sega Genesis. Maybe they realized fans were not going to go for that forever by the time […]

Day of the Tentacle Reminds Gamers of Maniac Mansion – Today in Retro Gaming – June 25th, 1993

Ah, Maniac Mansion- a classic point and click adventure title that was widely released, received a sequel in 1993.  The original was limited to a mansion, hence the name, and it worked oh so well.  The sequel, in an attempt to be “bigger, better and badder” did away with one single location so that it […]

Wild Guns Reloaded Shown at Electronic Entertainment Expo 2016

When it was first announced that Natsume was planning on relaunching Wild Guns, I was a little apprehensive.  Was this to be on the iPhone or Android platform, where a lot of these titles appear?  Was this going to go all “current gen” with the graphics and lose its charm?  Not all concerns were eliminated […]

Zia Goddesses of Magic Hitting Dreamcast Steam Playstation One

Okay, it is probably nothing new to many reading this that there is a new Sega Dreamcast game coming.  What if I added in that it is also hitting Steam?  Still nothing too exciting?  What about also coming to the original Playstation console?  Got your interest piqued yet?  Thought that would. Zia Goddesses of Magic […]

Melodie Unreleased Sony Playstation Portable Title Found Released

The Sony Playstation Portable, a hand held that was held back for many reasons.  Some people feel it was piracy, others feel it was a lack of quality games.  Then there are people that feel it was a “failure” because of lack of direction (Internet, music, games, movies, pictures, etc).  Whatever the reason, a lot […]

June- So Bad It’s Good Month

There will never be an end to games that are objectively terrible in the world of gaming. From bad design choices such as a eliminating everything which made the original great, to being an experimental game which didn’t quite execute as intended, bad games are a part of our lives. But there is one experience […]

OverBlood box

Today in Retro Gaming: OverBlood (PS1)

Waking up from cryosleep is never fun, but it’s even less enjoyable when you’re dealing with amnesia and hypothermia. This is the situation our protagonist finds himself facing at the beginning of OverBlood, a 3-D Sci-Fi Adventure (just like it says on the package). You know you’re in for a rough stretch when the first […]

Revenge of the License: Board Games

The most obvious shortcut you can take as a game developer is to make a game out of something that is already a game. Chess programs have been used to sell people on the idea of home computers since the 1970s, every version of Windows has shipped with Solitaire built right in, and casino games […]

Wild-Guns-Reloaded-Ann-PS4

Wild Guns Reloaded Exclusive Coming to Playstation 4 Showing E3 2016

When you think of classic retro titles to bring back for modern consoles, what do you think of?  If you are Natsume you apparently think it is time to reboot Wild Guns.  I have to agree, this is a great title to reboot and update for the modern console generation.  This is good news if […]
