Vanishing Point Burns Rubber in Cars, Trucks and SUVs on Playstation – Today in History – February 5th, 2001

Racing games are a staple of gaming.  We saw them in the early days on the Atari 2600 in Night Driver.  We saw them propel forward in the 8-Bit days with Rad Racer on NES.  16-Bit gave us great titles like Outrun and Super Hang-On while 32-Bit heralded in the age of the “Racer” series […]

Allied General Lets Players Take on World War II – Today in History – January 31st, 1996

Turn based strategy war games are not all that popular in today’s market and that kind of sucks.  I grew up playing computer games a lot in the 90’s and it seems that was the golden age for this genre.  Sure, the late 80’s and early 90’s probably had more turn based strategy war games, […]

Brain Dead 13 FMV Game Gives You Unlimited Lives Because You Will Need Them – Today in History – January 31st, 1996

A little disclaimer in the manual for Brain Dead 13 set the pace for the rest of the game.  You are given unlimited lives and will probably need all of them to survive Brain Dead 13.  For those that do not know about Brain Dead 13, it is a Full Motion Video Game (FMV) in […]

Battlesport Proves 3DO Can Ruin Friendships – Today in History – January 1st, 1996

This is a game that brings back the feel goods for me.  When I bought a 3DO it was after I joined the Marines (I shipped to boot camp the day after this game was released).  I liked this one a lot for some reason, it was just so different than what I was used […]

Shadow of the Colossus Atari 2600 retrogaming retro game Atari Age Bandit Gaming (3)

Shadow of the Colossus Atari 2600 Revived After Hardware Crash

A while back I covered the Atari 2600 port of Shadow of the Colossus by AtariAge member, “Ultima”.  Since I last covered Shadow of the Colossus for the Atari 2600 there has been a hardware crash that cost Ultima all of his previous code.  Since then he has gone back to the drawing board and […]

Today in Retro Gaming: Clock Tower 2 (PS1)

Clock Tower 2, one of the scariest games ever released for 32-bit systems, celebrates its 19th Japanese birthday today in retro gaming history! It’s impossible to explain what this game meant to me when I discovered it completely by accident at a Toys ‘R’ Us in the late 90’s. While Resident Evil made me jump […]

Get Angry with Donald Duck Goin Quackers on Dreamcast – Today in History – December 13th, 2000

The Sega Dreamcast fell on some hard times when it came to 3rd party support.  At least Sega had Ubi Soft showing support for their last console.  Donald Duck Goin Quackers is a 2.5D/3D style action platform title that features the popular Disney character.  Ubi Soft Montreal did the development work on this one.  For […]

Loaded Gives Gamers Top Down Doom on Playstation – Today in History – December 12th, 1995

20 years ago gamers that took a chance on the original Playstation got access to a treat called Loaded.  Interplay probably took a large chance on this one as it is a completely new intellectual property.  Couple that with the “newness” of the Playstation (Sony’s first console) and it is quite a gamble.  Gamers that […]

WCW Backstage Assault Makes Even Hardcore Fans Board on the Nintendo 64 – Today in History – December 12th, 2000

It is no secret that World Championship Wrestling (WCW) had their share of problems.  Lack of a deep locker room was not one of them.  The biggest problem that WCW faced was themselves.  They had no clear vision as to what they wanted to present fans.  The revolving door in the executive lounge was not […]

Wacky Wednesday – Jerome Bettis is Confused

It really should not be too much to ask that the people who produce the ads for video games have at least a moderate understanding of the product for which they are producing advertising, right? And yet we see this kind of thing repeatedly across pop culture, as the people who are tasked with inserting […]
