Today in History: April 3rd, 1993- Final Fight Punches onto the Sega CD

Capcom was an earnest Nintendo licensee from the get-go, not jumping ship till well into the life of the Super Nintendo, later than many other gaming companies.  They did license out some of their arcade games though, rather than releasing them on competing hardware themselves (something Konami didn’t do for years).  Most of these licensed […]

Bandit Gaming: Super Mario Bros on Sega Genesis

It is a gaming fact that Mario and the Super Mario Bros series never got released on the competing Sega Genesis. Why would Nintendo do that?

Game Hack: Star Fox on Sega Genesis

While this is nothing new, it is still quite impressive to see Star Fox running on the Sega Genesis, without additional hardware to assist with calculations.

New Game: Barbarian- The Ultimate Warrior for Sega Genesis Released

Sega kind of dropped the ball with their Genesis back in the day, quickly abandoning the system for the ill-fated 32X (fo a short time this WAS their focus) and then the rushed release of the Saturn.
