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 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 […]

Revenge of the License: Dark Seed

Over the lifespan of this column, we’ve looked at games licensed from every conceivable medium: blockbuster films, television shows, comic books, sporting events, fashion dolls, a casino, a restaurant, table top role-playing games, and even real life. Just when you sit back and think you’ve covered every conceivable thing a game company could pay money […]

Bonk Brink of Extinction More Information Released on Canceled Title

Bonk.  The redheaded stepchild of gaming mascots was never quite able to gain traction.  Bonk’s popularity was good enough for NEC/TTI/Hudson to release several titles based on him.  We got a shooter (Zonk) and several platformers in the Bonk universe.  After the demise of the Turbo Grafx-16, Hudson kept Bonk alive releasing titles for the […]

The Five Dumbest Mistakes I’ve Made As a Gamer

Everybody makes mistakes. We’re human, it’s OK to admit our flaws and imperfections. Most of them, hopefully, are momentary lapses of judgement: small errors that can easily be rectified or made right. Then there are the times you do something so moronic it makes you question your beliefs about how intelligent, sane, and sexy you […]

Ring of Red Shows Alternate History after World War II on Playstation 2 – Today in History – March 12th, 2001

It is historical fact that Germany and Japan lost World War II.  Ring of Red tells the story of an alternate history where Japan was conquered by both Soviet and American forces.  This has led to a North Korea/South Korea situation that is rife with troubles.  Seriously, Harry Turtledove could have a field day in […]

WCW vs the World Pushed Wrestling to New Heights on Playstation – Today in History – February 28th, 1997

WCW vs the World on the Playstation was the first Virtual Pro Wrestling title to come to the United States.  This is a serious distinction considering the Virtual Pro Wrestling engine is one of the better ones that gamers saw during this period.  The people behind it went onto become Aki Corporation who made No […]

R-Types Brings Arcade Originals Home to Playstation – Today in History – February 28th, 1999

Over the course of gaming, we have seen a ton of scrolling shooters come and go.  The genre that started with the likes of Defender and Space Invaders evolved all the way up to visually impressive titles such as Ikaruga and the various bullet hell games.  One series that has held its own over the […]

World's Scariest Police Chases box

Revenge of the License: World’s Scariest Police Chases (PS1)

One of these days I will learn not to open my mouth and express any opinions about video games when I’m around my editor. Innocuous comments made over Facebook chats often wind up condemning me to a week’s worth of misery. I point out how awful some game looks, and before I can finish the […]
