Retro City Rampage DX Hits Retro Platform

Retro_City_Rampage_Sony_Playstation_Portable_PSP_Vblank

Retro City Rampage is one of those modern games that attempts to rip off the classic “retro” look.  It is intentionally developed using minimalistic graphics and sound/music.  A lot of developers feel this is the route to take to make their game stand out.  Unfortunately, a lot of developers are forgetting to make their games […]

Cave Story.  A game that has made the rounds quite a bit on modern platforms (my first exposure was on the Sony Playstation Portable).  Now, we can start ticking off classic, retro, consoles as this 2D action game is coming to the Sega Genesis.  If you don’t know what Cave Story is about then you […]

Aquanauts_Holiday_Playstation_Artdink_PSone

When the Sony Playstation was announced fans were promised “new” experiences.  For the most part, the early releases were more of the same except for a few key different titles.  Sure, Cyber Sled, Wipeout, Twisted Metal and a few others were awesome new experiences, they were still similar to other titles we had seen up […]

Micro Transactions Could Save Arcade Games as we Knew Them

Arcade_Machines2

Back in the day arcades were king.  This was in the 80’s up to the early 90’s when home consoles were still underpowered.  When the Playstation and Sega Saturn came out though, while still underpowered by comparison, the quality of ports was much better.  This spelled the downfall of arcade games.  Gamers were no longer […]

Salamander Infects Japanese Arcades – Today in Retro Gaming – July 4th, 1986

Salamander_Arcade_Konami_Shooter_life_Force

Retitled “Life Force” when released in North America a few months later, Salamander was iconic for gamers.  First, this was a spinoff of another Konami arcade shooter- Gradius.  We all know how well spinoff titles usually do in gaming so it is rather interesting that Salamander was able to buck the trend.  Can anyone name […]

Remember R-Type, Gradius, Darius and Thunder Force?  Sure you do.  So does Breaking Byte Games who are making a homage to those classics called Xydonia.  Xydnonia is not simply a game that “feels” like those classics or has an enemy or two inspired by those games.  No, this is a tour de force challenger for […]

A Look Back – MediEvil

MediEval_PSOne_Playstation

When it comes to original PlayStation games, titans such as Crash Bandicoot and Spyro are usually the first to appear, drifting out of the fog of memory. Others fell to the wayside or were overshadowed by giants; of the latter the late Sir Daniel Fortesque comes to mind and several forays into a dark yet […]

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

Grand_Theft_Auto_PSOne_Playstation

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

Street_Fighter_Alpha_3_III_Capcom_Arcade

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 […]
