Bandit Gaming- Wipeout Ported to Atari 2600

When the Sony Playstation hit way back in the mid 1990’s it was a seminal release.  Sony was new to the console world and their aim was to be as different from the competition and what came before as possible.  One way this was accomplished was through requiring, through their stringent approval process, mainly 3D […]

Bandit Gaming: Shadow of the Colossus for Atari 2600 Work in Progress

We have covered wild works in progress and the like for various consoles since we started RGM.  One of the more interesting ones was Mario 64 getting ported to the Atari 2600, of all consoles.  Interestingly, we have found an even wilder work in progress title, Sony’s Shadow of the Colossus which is currently a […]

Sony Pocketstation

New Game: Snake Comes to the Sony PocketStation

Ah, the PocketStation from Sony, a device that never came to North America, at least officially.  Sure, you could import this little device but it was prohibitively expensive and there were precious few games that made the leap across the pond with their PocketStation content intact.  Homebrew developers are a wild bunch, they just won’t […]

Apparel- Playstation 20th Anniversary Celebration Continues with Clothing

This is a first for us here at RGM, an article about clothing.  You may be asking, what does clothing have to do with retro gaming?  Just clothing doesn’t have much in common, but when it is officially licensed Sony Playstation clothing celebrating the 20th Anniversary of the platform, we can fudge the rules a […]

Jumping Flash Geograph Seal, Sony Playstation Exact retrogaming retro game

Gamers Discovered Fear of Heights in Jumping Flash on Playstation – Today in History – January 1st, 1996

When the Sony Playstation hit 19 years ago (come September 2015 it will be 20 years old) gamers really didn’t know what to expect.  Sony was not exactly known for great games, their software division had a few hits (Hook being one), probably not enough to sustain a new, break away from Nintendo, console.  In […]

Polaris SnoCross Shreds Onto the Nintendo 64: Today in History- December 27th, 2000

Before Vicarious Visions were working their magic for Sega and the whole 2k sports line on the Sega Dreamcast system, they were creating games like Polaris SnoCross for companies like Vatical Entertainment for the Nintendo 64.  While not a graphically impressive game, it does show off Vicarious Visions capabilities with early 3D (which they tweaked […]

Doom 1993 First Person Shooter id Software retro December 10th 3

Go To Hell in Doom – Today in History – December 10th, 1993

When id Software released Doom they probably didn’t expect it to take off like it did.  Previously they did a lot of other games that weren’t nearly as big and the moderately successful Wolfenstein 3D.  The point is, everything prior to Doom was nowhere near as popular.  Doom expanded upon the graphics conveyed in Wolfenstein […]

Armorines: Project S.W.A.R.M. Released on Nintendo 64: Today in History- December 2nd, 1999

Acclaim may be dead and gone now (they were one of the first licensees for the original Nintendo Entertainment System back in the mid 80’s) but it can never be said that they didn’t try new things in their games.  They may not have been successful with many of their titles but they tried anyhow.

Bionic Commando Blasts onto the Nintendo Entertainment System: Today in History- December 1st, 1988

Capcom are not scared to try and reboot games from their past unless it is Legendary Wings or Section Z of course.  Bionic Commando was one of those titles that kids were discussing on the playground at school during recess, even if they didn’t have a Nintendo Entertainment System at home- they knew someone that […]
